Brits threaten Israel over passports

London's Daily Telegraph reports that Britain has threatened to suspend intelligence cooperation with Israel if it turns out that the Mossad stole the identities of British passport holders.
All of the British passport holders whose identities were stolen live in Israel, meaning Mossad would have had ready access to copies of their travel documents.

A senior Foreign Office source told The Daily Telegraph: “If the Israelis were responsible for the assassination in Dubai, they are seriously jeopardising the important intelligence-sharing arrangement that currently exists between Britain and Israel.

“If it transpires that Israel has been using British passports to assassinate its opponents, the British government will need to give serious consideration to any future cooperation.

“Britain has cut ties with Mossad in the past, and will do so again if the Israelis are found to be acting against British interests.”

Britain’s relationship with the Israeli security service reached an all-time low in 1986, when the then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher closed down Mossad’s UK operation in response to a series of incidents including the discovery of a bag of forged British passports which had been lost by a Mossad agent.

Mossad was only allowed to re-establish its presence in the UK after it promised not to abuse British passports in the future.

Its intelligence-sharing relationship with the security services over such sensitive issues as Iran is now more important than ever, but the Foreign Office source said: “In the past Israel has had a reputation for making life difficult for its friends. It is sincerely to be hoped that this is not the case in this instance.”
If the Mossad is behind this, I don't understand why they didn't take dead people's identities. Unless the whole point was for people to look at what happened and say that the Mossad would never do something so 'stupid' as to endanger Israelis this way.

Of course, there's one small catch to this: To prove that it was the Mossad that stole the passports, they would also have to prove that the Mossad carried out the assassination. And so far, it seems unlikely that anyone will be able to do that.

Sadly Carl, when it comes to accusations against Jews and or Israel, proof is not required.

I just posted a comment on your Dubai Hasbara thread which explains it all.

There's simply too many angles and red herrings to this story.

I am wondering if Mossad did a risk vs. reward assessment and figured that al-Mabhouh was very close to doing something that will take many Israelis lives and figured it worth snuffing him out now? And then watch who is replacing him and trace the chain of command?

And isn't too convenient for Dubai to put together fake evidence to point it all to Israel? Especially that Dubai is very nervous to be a terrorist target because of Pe'er success on the tennis court?

By the way, has anyone proved any blood libel which has haunted and persecuted Jews,causing untold pain against Jews to be true?

If the answer is no then please tell me why we still suffer for it today?

Fact remains today in 2010 no one can prove any libel against Jews however those libels are alive and well and cause us grief in immeasurable ways.

Brits threaten Israel because they can. Right this moment there are millions of pages on the internet about the IDF stealing organs because people allow themselves to believe it.

So while Brittan may struggle to find actual proof against something the Mossad will never admit to, their accusations will stick like glue. Indeed Israel may feel consequences because of it but rest assured nothing we say or do can change it.

The blind can not see. The self imposed blind however might see but that means first and foremost they have to rid themselves of something most can not admit they possess.

A great article which proves my point about self imposed blindness:

"War By Other Means"
Travers came to the job having already made up his mind not to believe anything Israel said and to accept everything Hamas put forward.

Only Stupid Jews would steal the identities of live people in Israel and broadcast openly Israel was behind it.

Is this the professionalism we have to associate with the Mossad? And when it comes to allegations against the Jews, no proof is needed.

What could go wrong indeed.

In the UK Media, Israel is already guilty.
