Yesterday Reuters reported that Dahi Khalfan Tamim, the Dubai police chief, has stated that he would ask the Dubai prosecutor to issue arrest warrants for Benjamin Netanyahu and Meir Dagan, the head of Mossad, if it could be proven that the Mossad was responsible for the death of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai in January.
Just a note about Dubai:
Visitors should be aware that citizens of Israel will not be granted entry to the United Arab Emirates, while any other visitor who has evidence of travel to Israel in their passport will also be prevented from entering the country.
It seems to me that there might be a bit of an anti-Semitism problem in the country to begin with. As I pointed out in a former post (rightwinggranny.com), there are some real questions as to who killed Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. Hamas is a Sunni Muslim terrorist organization backed by Iran. Hezbollah is a Shia terrorist organization backed by Iran. The killing could have been the result of an inter-terrorism group squabble or an intra-terrorism group squabble. It is possible that Israel did it, but the initial comments were that it was an uncharacteristically sloppy job if it was done by Mossad. I am sorry to say that although I consider myself a compassionate person, I really don’t get too upset over the murder of a terrorist. How many people’s lives will be saved because this man is dead?
