KRudd a Forger? "I believe it has occured…"

An update from this: ISRAEL: Australia expels Mossad station chief over passports in Dubai killing

Andrew Bolt

Forged outrage

‘’Has Australia forged foreign passports before? I believe it has occured…”

Apparently Opposition foreign affairs spokesman Julie Bishop has made a terrible gaffe by telling the truth and exposing the hypocrisy behind the Rudd Government’s huffing over Israel:

In an interview with The Age online, Ms Bishop said it would be naive to think ‘’Israel is the only country … that has used forged passports, including Australian passports, for security operations’’. When asked, ‘’What? We do?’’ she said ‘’yes’’.

Later she said: ‘’Has Australia forged foreign passports before? You’ll have to ask the Foreign Minister.’’ Pressed on what she thought, she said: ‘’I believe that it has occurred.’’

But in a statement later, she denied having told The Age online that Australian intelligence agencies had forged the passports of other nations.

‘’My responses were referring to the fact that forged Australian passports have been used previously … I have no knowledge of any Australian authority forging any passports of any nation.’’

Bishop’s real gaffe is to retreat under fire from what she correctly said. A Paul Keating would have gone in even harder.

Mossad assassins escaped to Iran?

An updated from Andrew Bolt:

The Dubai police statement issued Wednesday included a striking detail: two of the new suspects, identified as Nicole Sandra McCabe and Adam Marcus Korman and carrying Australian passports, left Dubai on a ship bound for Iran.

Odd place for Israeli agents to choose to hide. If I were Rudd, I’d go just a bit easy on blaming Israel until we learn more.

And doesn’t this sound an extremely large operation for a secret service keen to leave minimal traces:

The new suspects carried Irish, British, French and Australian passports, and they bring the size of the assassination team to 26, including six women, police officials in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, said in a written statement.

And doesn’t this sound rather Inspector Plod for Mossad:

The Dubai police have made public extensive video surveillance showing the suspects tracking Mr. Mabhouh at the airport and at his hotel, sometimes even donning wigs and posing as tennis-playing tourists, rackets in hand, as they followed Mr. Mabhouh.

But Robert Baer, a former CIA operative, dismisses such objections, yet still seems mystified himself:

Why were identities stolen from people living in Israel? Why didn’t they just kill Mr. Mabhouh in a dark alley, one assassin with a pistol with a silencer? Or why at least didn’t they all cover their faces with baseball caps so that the closed-circuit TV cameras did not have a clean view?

The truth is that Mr. Mabhouh’s assassination was conducted according to the book—a military operation in which the environment is completely controlled by the assassins. At least 25 people are needed to carry off something like this. You need “eyes on” the target 24 hours a day to ensure that when the time comes he is alone. You need coverage of the police…

I can only speculate about where exactly the hit went wrong. But I would guess the assassins failed to account for the marked advance in technology. Not only were there closed-circuit TV cameras in the hotel where Mr. Mabhouh was assassinated and at the airport, but Dubai has at its fingertips the best security consultants in the world…

Not completely understanding advances in technology may be one explanation for the assassins nonchalantly exposing their faces to the closed-circuit TV cameras, one female assassin even smiling at one. They mistook Dubai 2010 for Paris 1992, and never thought it would all be tied together in a neat bow. But there is no good explanation why Israel, if indeed it was behind the assassination, underestimated the technology.

And not many of the alleged assassins seem Arab or Iranian, actually:

Hamas bastard roasted in Dubai

Update:

Hamas Threatens Revenge on Jews Outside Israel

(IsraelNN.com) Hamas threatened to attack Jews outside of Israel in retaliation for Israel’s “changing the rules” and allegedly assassinating a Hamas co-founder and senior terrorist who was eliminated more than a week ago in Dubai. It also suggested that Infrastructures Minister Uzi Landau used his recent visit to Dubai as a camouflage for the counterterrorist operation. (IsraelNN.com)

From The Age thanks to DP111

HAMAS has threatened vengeance on Israel after accusing it of assassinating a leading member of its military wing in Dubai.

Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, described as one of the founders of the al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military arm, was found dead in his Dubai hotel room on January 20.

Although a Palestinian news agency reported that the militant had died of cancer, security officials in the emirate said his body showed signs of a violent death. (He probably died of AIDS, just like his spiritual advisor, Yasser Arafatbastard, and now they blame da Jooozzzz/ed)

In line with official policy, there was no response from Israel or its overseas intelligence agency Mossad, which has carried out assassinations in the past.  More>>

Former Fatah anti-corruption official: Hamas will take over Judea and Samaria

From Carl in J’lem

In an interview with JPost’s Khaled Abu Toameh, former Fatah anti-corruption official Fahmi Shebaneh says that Hamas will take over Judea and Samaria because the ‘Palestinian Authority’ is corrupt.

Read the whole thing. And then just give them a ‘state.’ I’m sure that will clean up their act. Just like Robert Mugabe.

Surprise! Abu Mazen wants all of Jerusalem

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that ‘moderate‘ ‘Palestinian‘ PresidentMahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen wants all of Jerusalem for his state reichlet’s capital.

Egypt: Genocide on Coptic Christians – BBC Claims "Sectarian Violence is Unusual"

At least 6 Christians killed in shooting outside church

At least five Coptic Christians have been killed in a drive-by shooting outside a church in southern Egypt, officials say.

Update: “It is all religious now. This is a religious war about how they can finish off the Christians in Egypt”

The shooting came as worshippers left the church in Naj Hammadi after a midnight mass on Coptic Christmas Eve.

Unidentified gunmen sprayed gunfire indiscriminately into the crowd, officials said.

Two Muslims passing the church were among 10 people reportedly injured in the attack.

Naj Hammadi is 40 miles (64km) from Luxor, southern Egypt’s biggest city.

Coptic Christians account for about 10% of the Egypt’s population of 80 million.

They have complained of harassment and discrimination, though sectarian violence is unusual.

Google “attacks on Copts” and you’ll find thousands of “unusual sectarian violence”

Here’s the report from the Associated (with terrorists) Press:

Spencer: A deliberately timed massacre, though the ongoing persecution of Christians in Egypt by Muslims is only vaguely alluded to at the end of the article. “Gunmen kill 6 at Egypt church after Christmas Mass,” by Sarah El-Deeb for the Associated Press, January 6:  JW

“Qena is one of Egypt’s poorest and most conservative areas.”

Conservative, how? That, and its bearing on security for Christians in Egypt is left unsaid.

More on the oppression of the Copts:

So the same article from Al BeBeeCeera includes 6 recent links to attacks and murders of Copts, the original inhabitants of Egypt. But the Beep insists on painting a pussy on your cheek: “sectarian violence is unusual.”

Egyptian cops arrest 13 Copts — the victims of attack by Islamic supremacists

Genocide on Copts/Jihad Watch

The local imam incited the Islamic supremacists to attack the Christians. So yet another imam is exposed as a Misunderstander of the Religion of Peaceâ„¢. Why didn’t his Qur’anic study tell him to respect the People of the Book, and not to wage jihad against or expect them to assume dhimmi status? Aren’t Islamic apologists in the West forever telling us that the only people who believe that Muslims hold to jihad against Jews and Christians, and in dhimmitude, are greasy Islamophobes? How is it then that so many Muslims, including even imams, turn out to be greasy Islamophobes?

“Egyptian police arrest 13 Copts, victims of attack by Islamic extremists,” from Asia News, March 18

We refuse to be Muslims by force,’ say Egyptian Christians

“No compulsion in religion…”
