2. Well we knew it couldn't be an Arab hit
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (02.15.10)
No car bomb. So now the PA is hiring the IRA to kill their opponents perhaps?
3. Appologies to Israel ...if not found guilty ?
Roland Seener ,   London England   (02.15.10)
Some hopes !
4. finally,,, shahar peer entered Dubai
secular beast   (02.15.10)
5. not 11 mercenaries - rather 72 virgins
Arthur ,   SF, CA   (02.15.10)
6. this looks all so crazy
stunned too ,   europe   (02.15.10)
so many killers, so many so somehow different people, so many crystal clear pictures of them + cctv... did it really happen this way ? was this really a secret service operation ? strange...
7. how ironic
david ,   new york   (02.15.10)
they let in a known terrorist who is wanted for murder and let him operate from there and now they want interpol to investigate his killing?!? who will investigate dubai?
8. Since when does Mossad rely on Palestinian operatives?
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (02.15.10)
I'm not the only one who insisted that al-Mabhouh was in a dangerous business in which one makes enemies, many of whom wanted him dead. So now we learn two suspects were turned over by Jordan, and one was a security officer with the PA. Hardly the sort Mossad would rely on for a "hit". An 11 person team? Not Mossad's style. But if fear of Mossad keeps them up at night, gam zeh l'tovah - that too is for the good.
9.  spy R us
secular beast   (02.15.10)
eight of them wear eye glasses!!!! most of them look like arabs counterfiet passports plus fake names all are wearing,,,toys R us spy make-up,,,al-Mabhouh is history,,,i like it,,i like it
10. I have a feeling
Sam ,   ME   (02.15.10)
It is a PA, Musad thingi. why not.
11. an 11 person MOSSAD death squad??!
Either the mighty have fallen into a deep dark hole and rumours of the greatness are greatly exaggerated or this ain't no MOSSAD operation! Alternatively these are all "cutouts" who were there to "cover" for the real killing team! What do you think?
12. Immoral Newspaper
Israeli   (02.15.10)
This paper should never publish the photos of the alleged hit team. Even if Dubai's police efforts are sincere (repeat "if"), there is no justifacation for assisting Dubai, .
13. It wouldve been better if Dubai kept such a close record of
Alan ,   SA   (02.15.10)
its debts. It is sinking into the sea pulling some European countries with it.
14. Don't expect apologies for blaming and threatening arrests
Yaniv ,   Israel   (02.15.10)
of Israeli officials. Apologizing is rare in the Arab world, especially to Jews.
15. I am VERY dissapointed
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (02.15.10)
I had hoped the Mossad had done another perfectly executed assination and now we find it is a bunch of rag tag amateurs who have already been identified and two given over to bankrupt cops. Shucks, Darn and Rats.
16. the 11
Birdi ,   Israel   (02.15.10)
none of them look Jewish to me.... & the Mossad only employs Jews.
17. The Large Number Points to An Arab Operation
Frankie Littlehammer ,   New Herstal, TX USA   (02.15.10)
If it had been an Israeli hit they wouldn't have needed more than one or two operatives. The large number of accomplices points to an Arab Operation. Or maybe the list of suspects is just a cover-up. Looking at their own incompetence there is incredulity that it could be done by a few.

Haifa granny   (02.15.10)
A PA-Mosad thing? The PA is a joke, a cruel joke, but a joke. They cannot find their proverbial whatever with both hands. The Mosad is going to collaborate with them? When pigs fly. What possible good could the PA do the Mosad, except maybe bring them coffee and donuts.
19. Do I recognize anyone? Sure.
Haifa granny   (02.15.10)
Bruce Willis, Sean Connery, Angelina Jolie, George Clooney, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Pierce Brosnan, Marcel Marceau, Peter Sellers, David Niven, Tony Shalhoub. Look just like them to me.
20. 11 man team w/8 glasses wearers sure thing MOSSAD! Not!

The coffee would probably be poisoned.
22. no need for hamas to retaliate
jb ,   france   (02.15.10)

23. israel think it is still the west`s Poster child

James ,   ISRAEL   (02.15.10)

Moshele far right 2nd row is a woman....duh.
30. seriously - what do they still look for the mastermind of
mastermind ,   europe   (02.15.10)
this ? its clear: - the list of assailants is not country specific - everything about M's flight, hotel, visits in dubai was known to the killers well in advance - strangely, his flight was fully booked, thats why his bodyguards couldnt join him - nobody(!) in dubai looked after him, neither were the dubai authorities informed of his stay; both facts also the dubai police chief finds quite weird. - nobody, really zero, missed him. he was found by hotel stuff the next noon ! - now, two palestinians are arrested: - one of them met "peter", the team lead, prior to the attack - the other palestinian (PA official) met the victim at the airport - between arrival and death M had a meeting with palestinians. the murder was carried out by a european group, but planned and organized it was by palestinians. => inside job, nothing else.
