Mossad Chief Remains Holocaust-Obsessed

If anyone needs any further proof that the long shadow of the Holocaust continues to inform some of Israel’s most self-destructive behavior, they have only to read this suggestive story in the Times of London providing inside color from supposed Mossad sources about the run-up to the Dubai assassination. In it, Uzi Machnaimi describes the motivations that inform Meir Dagan, the bloodthirsty Mossad chief responsible for the Dubai fiasco:
I say, psychotherapy! And don't let this as...le anywhere near a gun...


  1. " But the fact that Dagan is likely making a fraudulent personal claim in order to dramatize the lesson is instructive..."

    The writer does not know that for a fact, so should have left this out.

    Why would anyone be surprised the Holocaust would affect some Jews in this way? I can fully understand how that defensive mentality would develop. I can imagine that some would grow the hardest shell to the suffering of others in their determination to prevent it ever happening to their people again. I am not saying it is right, but it is understandable.

    True he doesn't and the story is  probable, but a good reporter is always armed with a good dose of skepticism. Let's just remember that the Mossad's motto is "by deception you operate"..For them it's part of the job to deceive and lie..

  3. <span>How I escaped Mossad's clutches </span>

    <span>Israel’s secret intelligence service is ruthless but reckless because it doesn’t care about international opinion, says Peter Hounam, who was imprisoned by them. If Mossad was behind the murder of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a Dubai hotel last month it should shock nobody. From my experience of the Israeli intelligence agencies, it is not their ruthlessness that is so remarkable but their disdain for international public opinion and tendency to take short cuts.</span>
