31. There has to be an enquiry
Hunt S. Cross ,   England   (02.17.10)
It's only two years ago that the government of which Gordon Brown was a member honoured the bravery of the police involved in the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes. He was an electrician, living in London, unarmed, innocent and wrongly suspected of being about to detonate a bomb. This enquiry is into the circumstances of the killing of someone who was known to have already murdered two captives and who was currently engaged in the logistics of mass murder, all on behalf of the same terrorist gang. If Gordon intends giving this hit squad some medals, too, he must be sure they'll accept. That's why there has to be an enquiry.
32. Alan M. Dershowitz: Killing Terrorist Chieftains -
Norway   (02.17.10)
is Legal. According to the top American commander in Iraq, Lt.-Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, the U.S. Army was given a highly specific military order: to kill radical Shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. This order for extrajudicial killing is perfectly legitimate and lawful under the laws of war since al-Sadr is a combatant. He leads a militia that has declared war on American and coalition forces, as well as on civilians, both foreign and Iraqi. He is at the top of the chain of command, and it is he who presses the on-off button for the killings. There is no legal or moral difference between al-Sadr and Hamas leaders Yassin and Rantisi, terrorist commanders responsible for hundreds of civilian deaths. (Jerusalem Post, April 22, 2004) Mabhouh was a Hamas commander and founder of the Hamas' Izz al-Din Qassam Brigades, who has carried out hundreds of attacks and suicide bombings targeting Israeli troops and civilians. He also led a war on Israel, and was at the top of the chain of command. The Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades is one of three Hamas gangs who together kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit. In a recording posted on a Hamas Web site, Gilad Shalit said: "I am Gilad, son of Noam Shalit, prisoner of the Izz el-Din al-Qassam Kataib [Brigades],.." (Shalit's father expresses hope Hamas is willing to negotiate, Haaretz, 25/06/2007). One of the INN headlines said, 01/15/08: "Enemy Fires 50 Rockets and Shells at Israel, 5 injured" The Hamas terrorist organization’s Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades gang claimed responsibility for the attacks. Hamas Kiddie-TV Puppet Bear wants to Kill Jews Too... Nassur: "I will join the ranks of the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam [Hamas'] Brigades. I will be a Jihad fighter with them and I will carry a rifle... (INN, 02/15/09).. Wherever this killing is traced back - the world is a better place without Mr al-Mabhouh.

Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne,   (02.17.10)
It's not the British who cannot be trusted,it's their appalling New Labour government. Carlos,please don't judge the British by their New Labour government and I shall not judge Americans by President Obama. I wouldn't ,anyway. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne,   (02.17.10)
I should have addressed my comments to Ralph Levy,not carlos,#1. I misread. Apologies to carlos.#1, with whom I absolutely agree. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
36. To @9 Tahl...We must remind PM Brown..
James ,   ISRAEL   (02.17.10)
That they are having this problem with their terrorists too not only using British passports,but printing some FAKE ones.I have read it at the Times and the Telegragraph too. Why even bother to make a point that HE( brown)is going to investigate it? hells bells,they have been at it for ages not only with FAKE passport printing but catching would be Islamists terrorists preparing bombs in their homes. When will this stupidity end concerning that BLOODY TERRORIST BASTARD's DEATH.. Isay whomever did it KUDOS TO THEM.Be it Arab faction(most probably Fatah)or others of their ilk. BUT NEVER,EVER MOSSAD's work for it would be laughable. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH WITH this continuous articles we have had for the past WEEK.

Another Mossad failure was the bungled attempt to assassinate Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal in 1997 in Jordan, after which 2 Mossad agents carrying Canadian passports were arrested in Aman.

Mossad bungle;
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne,   (02.17.10)
Brown and the New Labour government are more interested in protecting the document than the people who use it. There's a British journalist passport holder being held on trumped up charges in Gaza by Hamas.A strange coincidence or what?Not much protection for him. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
41. Oh Ian Is Here..To Both your posts kudos..FOR
Kate ,   ISRAEL   (02.17.10)
For putting the onus not on the British people,but its Govt. Particularely the "new labour" wow! You know Ian in a way I feel sorry for PM Brown thanks to that tricky Blair who after winning the first term he promised to step down and give the reins to Brown. Vain hope it turned out to be and you had them for ten year was it? What I think is the fact you are having so many Islamist trying to take over your country,and to think even the Archbishop acting like a dhimmi saying (sometime ago)that Sharia can be acceptable..Couldn't believe what I had read. As for the Liberals they had better no let that nasty woman to return to the House of Lords with her par for the course and sympthy to the jihadists. Forget her name for a minute,but you will understand who I am referring. Everytime I see the name Ian I jump for joy(that was at Haaretz)and then careful to look for the address--for ther were other Ian's too but NOT YOUR GOOD SELF. I can picture you when saying: THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!! Bless your heart dear friend.

Birdi ,   Israel   (02.17.10)
Actually Ian, the British Consulate is working to free the arrested British journalist in Gaza. (which is expected of them)
43. To @38 & @39 Excuse me but!!!!!
James ,   ISRAEL   (02.17.10)
But Birdi Even if it happened did you have to advertisze it here so's our enemies can rejoice? Whether it is true or not..With the Mashaal affair it was a success.Except that the late King Hussein begged for the antidote to be given to the escruciatingly dying Mashall.And Mossad obliged. Am I supposed to feel happy the B,...D is still alive? No I am not. Our boys sure did a good job on Eichman though. Hey do you think being a Mossad agent is an easy job? I am disappointed with you for adding fuel to the fire. But I guess truth can hurt,but I hate to admit it.. We'll see won't we eh? Layla tov soon

Birdi (is sad) ,   Israel   (02.18.10)
But James, in great agony I posted the truth. As for our enemies,they have already condemned us for the Dubai hit & are calling for revenge. Nope,I guess being a Mossad agent is not an easy job. Hoping to re-enter your good books.
45. I wholeheartedly agree with you, Jake and James
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (02.18.10)
Birdi..... I'm sure the Mossad has learnt from its mistakes.1973 and 1997 is a long, long time ago in James Bond terms. You just inadvertently 'matty grovesed' us. I know your heart's in the right place, mind... The guys in the Dubai vid don't look like Israelis.
46. elimination of terrorists
chaim ,   miami usa   (02.18.10)
the method used by the usa and england is to level the entire building and the surronding area when they get information that a top leader of el quida or taliban, big deal this peice of hate was to israel as the el quadia is to the west
47. # 45
Birdi/heart of gold ,   Israel   (02.18.10)
Mark, please never compare me to Matty Groves, thats an insult. We all anxiously await the truth about the recent Dubai hit...maybe not now but the truth will come out in a number of years.
