    Israel’s Targeted Assassination Scandal

    The IDF spy case revealed Thursday began in late 2008, with the publication of an article in Haaretz. The article, by writer Uri Blau, accused the IDF of continuing a policy of targeted assassination of terrorists despite a Supreme Court order favoring arrests whenever possible.

    …. The IDF enjoys virtual impunity in Israeli society and the Court does little or nothing to prevent it. Uri Blau’s story reveals that for some in Israel the rule of law is little more than an inconvenient theory honored in the breach, if at all.

    Israel – a Nation alone.

    [Israel] – “A nation alone” has turned into our goal, our isolation has become an aspiration. Whom will we have left after we attack and boycott everyone? …. a sign of despair and a complete loss of direction. …. Such behavior – kicking and barking crazily in every direction – is destroying Israel. ….

    Israel is falling to the status of an international pariah, the abomination of the nations. … Only the United States remains our automatic and blind ally for all our mistakes.

    I stole IDF documents to expose West Bank war crimes, Anat Kam says.

    …. In the newly released material documenting court hearings surrounding Kam’s arrest, the journalist and former IDF soldier said that the motivation behind her removal of sensitive military material was to expose “certain aspects of the IDF’s conduct in the West Bank that I thought were of interest to the public.”

    Kam added that her thinking behind taking the top secret papers was to ensure that “if and when the war crime the IDF was and is committing in the West Bank would be investigated, then I would have evidence to present.” ….

    Poland arrests alleged Mossad agent

    BERLIN – Polish authorities have arrested an alleged Mossad spy from Israel wanted in connection with the slaying of a Hamas agent in Dubai, the German federal prosecutor’s office said Saturday.

    A man using the name of Uri Brodsky is suspected of working for a foreign spy agency in Germany and helping issue a fake German passport to a member of the Mossad hit squad allegedly behind the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in January, the German spokesman told The Associated Press. …

    Suspected Mossad agent nabbed in Warsaw in connection with Dubai hit.

    Berlin seeking extradition of Israeli who used German passport, but Poland says no decision has been made and feels trapped between two allies …

    the Israeli embassy in Warsaw has asked the Polish government not to approve Brodsky’s extradition to Germany. If he is extradited, Brodsky would be tried under suspicions of espionage, not for involvement in the hit on Mabhouh. The Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem yesterday confirmed the Der Spiegel report.

    Poland Turns Down Israel, to Extradite ‘Mossad Agent’ to Germany.

    Poland, a long-time friend of Israel, has turned down a request to allow alleged Mossad agent Uri Brodsky to return to Israel and instead will hand him over to German authorities. Brodsky has been accused of being linked to the elimination of Hamas co-founder Mahmoud Mabhouh (pictured above) in Dubai last in January.

    Der Spiegel reported last Saturday that Polish authorities arrested Brodsky at the Warsaw passport two weeks ago on suspicion of fraudulently obtaining a Germany passport, used in the assassination of Mabhouh.

    Israeli ministers had pleaded with Poland not to extradite Brodsky.

    … Israel is now seen as a recalcitrant state. Netanyahu thinks, for some reason, that having good ties with Germany and Poland will grant him protection in such instances. In essence, he continues making frequent visits to the diplomatic cash machine, even though his card has been voided. Lacking any kind of credit, the ATM is now just a hole in the wall. …

    British trade union boycotts Israel.

    A motion has been clinched in Britain calling for a complete boycott of Israel and for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador to the country.

    One of Britain’s largest unions voted at its annual conference in Bournemouth last week for thoroughly boycotting Israel, saying that Israeli regime lied over the Gaza flotilla incident.

    More Latuff Cartoons:


    …. Pollard belongs to an era where Israel believed it was the queen of the world and had the right to do whatever it wished. He caused grave damage to the US, to America’s intelligence agencies, and to US national security. In the eyes of the Americans, and certainly those entrusted with safeguarding America’s security and secrets, he is a traitor, criminal, and a scumbag. In another era, he would have gotten the electric chair. The US establishment despises him.

    And what do Israelis do? Our governments (mostly rightist governments, and rightist Israelis) turned Pollard into a national hero; a brother and savior, the greatest Jew of all. …,7340,L-3911677,00.html
