Hamas leader murdered in Dubai – three forged Irish passports involved

When it comes to political assassinations, Mossad is in the premier league.

Over two years 2008 to 2009, 580,000 Irish passports were issued and 33,214 were lost or stolen or mislaid over that period.

The murder of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a Hamas leader from Palestine, by suffucation in a hotel room, was performed by a team of 18 people in Dubai.

Security cameras provided clear evidence. Three forged Irish passports were used by people using false names on with a true numbered passport. It is still possible to get an Irish passport, establish the identity of the owner, get a birth cert and get another passport with a false identity.

Surely, computerised biometrics should make these extremely difficult in the future. Foreign Affairs claim that the Irish passports used in the Dubai murder/assassination were forgeries. Two Palestinians were involved and two women. The operation was run from Austria separately with contact through a central control in Austria. Robert Fisk reports that Abu Dhabi suspect the collusion of EU secret services with Mossad, the Israeli secret service. The passports used were six British, three Irish, one French and one German. The UK government say that the Irish passports were forgeries.

The British identities were stolen from six British passport holders living in Israel. The British government has called in the Israeli ambassador to explain the sex stolen identities. Some of this information comes from Haaretz, the Israeli newspaper, some from the Guardian in London and the Irish Independent in Dublin.
