Ireland expels Israeli diplomat over Mabhouh

Ireland jumped on the bandwagon on Tuesday by expelling an Israeli diplomat as a sign of displeasure over the use of Irish passports in the Mabhouh affair. The diplomat had no connection to the passports. In fact, the Irish government admitted that it had not made a direct connection between Israel and the use of forged Irish passports.
The move was an expression of displeasure by the Irish government over the use of forged Irish and other countries' passports in the suspected Mossad hit, though Irish Foreign Minister Michael Martin stated that Dublin had not found any direct evidence connecting Israel to the use of Irish passports. The decision to expel the diplomat, he said, was prompted by evidence found by other countries whose passports had been forged, which implicated Israel in the act.


Irish Foreign Minister Micheal Martin said Tuesday his government was expelling one member of Israel's embassy staff in Dublin after an investigation reached "the inescapable conclusion that an Israeli government agency was responsible."

Martin said that the unnamed official was not being specifically blamed for forging passports.
Have they now all gotten it out of their system?

No. You wonder why they hold Israel responsible when there is no proof of any Israeli connection. But what a world we live in.

What could go wrong indeed

Ireland should be publically questioned about the former U.S. marine on the flotilla who says he has an Irish passport. Did Ireland give that guy his passport? and is he allowed as an Irish passport holder to attack the Israeli military on a claimed aid boat running a legal blockade? Israel need to turn these things back onto these "internationals"!
