1. it must be clearly understood
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.14.13)
this man was legally arrested and charged with offences under israeli law. he was given legal representation and his case was followed by the courts at the highest levels and by the justice ministry. according to the above report, the man denied the charges against him to his attorney. yet he allegedly killed himself before he could be tried. the man was in pre-trial detention at the time of his death. some people prefer death to shame and remorse.
2. there is no proof
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.14.13)
there is no proof that this man took part in the mabhouh hit. there is no proof that he volunteered information to dubai authoritites about such hit. all we have are rumours and innuendoes by so-called "western sources" leaking unconfirmed reports to arab enemies of israel. these "western sources," unnamed, obviously have their own agendas. these agendas are not friendly to israel. indeed, they are willing to sacrifice essential intelligence work which is useful for the entire west in order to pressure and embarrass israel.
3. while people are obsessing about a dead spy

children in israel are practicing in their schools the fine art of dodging incoming missiles.
4. #1 And moreover...

it seems that the Australia's foreign minister has been informed of the arrest. So, why all this fuzz now ?,7340,L-4344900,00.html
5. confusing
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (02.14.13)
The four attorneys mentioned are all well-known and friendly with extreme Leftist Meretz Knesset members like Gal On. If the Leftists worried about a miscarriage of justice, they could have consulted with these lawyers and heard what is now publicly known: there was no human rights violation and Israel treated X better than any other country would. Instead, Meretz chose to damage Israeli security for some headlines. I don't understand why they would do that.
6. #5 DONT BE CONFUSED...........

Kidnapping a foreign national on foreign soil and spiriting him to Israel is illegal under International Law. That is why he was held incommunicado in solitary confinement under a false name. If I did that to a family member of yours, and then his behind national security I bet you wouldn't be so sanguine about it. Oh, it happened to someone else so it doesn't matter is not an acceptable response
8. To: No. 7
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.14.13)
He was an Israeli citizen, too. That gives Israel all the jurisdiction it needs.
9. To: No. 6
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.14.13)
Oh, I think that more creative ways of arranging his disappearance could have been arranged.
10. To: Israel Israeli
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.14.13)
Oh, I understand. Meretz is a pack of leftist publicity hounds. Gal On is alpha female of the pack. I'm betting Shelley is pretty upset .....
11. 7 he was not a foreign national
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.14.13)
this man was an israeli.. furthermore, there is no proof that he was kidnapped. his family was informed of his arrest and they have not complained. he was held in secret to protect other agents and operation. i do not believe that it is any foreigner's business how security prisoners are handled in isral, especially given that he was given due process of law, with attorneys representing him, with the supervision of the highest courts and of the justice ministry. the man at the very least committed espionage against israel, and he definitely had te be taken to priiison.
12. Mr. X

For Israel to have him incarcerated him in such a manner could only mean that he betrayed Israel in a very big way and still constituted a danger to other agents in the field. Whilst there is no confirmation to the above story it would explain the seriousness of his crime and treachery and probable suicide to avoid a lifetime in jail. To say that Israel may be implicit in his death is ridiculous under the circumstances even with cameras you cant watch an inmate 24/7 and every second of the hour. Furthermore it was almost 10 months of incarceration before his final death. Either way its terrible news for the family and I would imagine his wife and children would have been given a new identity. I base my words on supposition alone.
13. Exhume his body
and conduct a proper post-mortem on the corpse to determine the actual cause of death.
14. Know who else was "in the know"?
William ,   Israel   (02.14.13)
The Dubai Police who has all of the CCTV recorded video from the hotel where Mabhouh was killed. Know who's not in the video? Zygier. Is Al-Jarida's "Western sources in the know" located in London or Dearborn, Michigan?
15. #13 - maybe it was from Polonuim-210
