Report: Israeli prime minister authorized Dubai assassination

News keeps on coming regarding that assassination in Dubai, and this report from The Sunday Times, via Haaretz, would make me very nervous if I lived in a Jewish community outside the United States:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu authorized in early January the assassination of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, according to a report published in the Sunday Times.

Based on information obtained from “sources with knowledge of Mossad,” the paper reported that Netanyahu gave Mossad chief Meir Dagan the green light for the Dubai operation during a meeting at the Midrasha - the intelligence agency’s headquarters, in the northern suburbs of Tel Aviv.

The sources also said that the Mossad hit squad trained for the Dubai mission by secretly rehearsing in a Tel Aviv hotel.

Netanyahu reportedly told the Mossad agents, “The people of Israel count on you. Good luck.”

Read the rest here. I’ve seen no media outlet independently reporting this claim, but that doesn’t mean it’s not accurate. Let’s just hope we don’t see a repeat of the terrorists bombings in Argentina from 1992 and 1994.
