The popularity of Israeli secret service agency continues to rise. The January assassination of senior Hamas figure Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai, which many have linked with the spy agency, has led to an increase in the number of Google searches for the word "Mossad".


According to Google trend, which follows web searching patterns, the number of Google searches for the Mossad has increased by four between mid-January – when the murder was first reported in the media – and mid-February. Moreover, in comparison with 2009, the agency saw a whopping sevenfold increase in the number of Google web searches.


The United Arab Emirates tops the list of curious countries that have goggled the secret service agency in the past 30 days, followed by Israel, Singapore, Indonesia, Ireland and India. Abu Dhabi takes first place among the cities that have looked up the clandestine organization.
