    UK expels Israeli Diplomat

    The UK is to expel an Israeli diplomat over the use of 12 forged British passports linked to the murder of Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai.
    Foreign Secretary David Miliband told the Commons there were "compelling reasons" to believe Israel was responsible for the passport "misuse".
    He said: "The government takes this matter extremely seriously. Such misuse of British passports is intolerable."

    Israel says there is no proof it was behind the killing in Dubai in January.
    But Mr Milband said it was "highly likely" the Israeli secret service Mossad was involved and the fact that Israel was a close ally added "insult to injury".

    The UK is weak, what they did here was wrong. The hug the terrorists and kiss the "Palestinians." Sadly, my country now too is attacking Israel. The world needs to take a hard stance, not the soft stance and the falsely accusing eye of focusing on the "evils" of Israel and the "plight" of the Palestinian people. Nations are acting in an anti-Israeli fashion to improve relations with the Arab states who hate Israel.

    I'm afraid this one has to do more with Britain's own citizens.
    The Labour party faces a hard election, and a populist action was needed to boost its popularity.

    It's not a big deal, however, and cannot be compared with the diplomatic crisis(that is hopefully behind us) with the US.

    Actually, the British are hugging their own laws, which is right and proper. The forging of official government documents is a pretty serious crime.

    As long as Obama's priority is the Arab world, Israel will take a backseat to Obama's foolishness. He wants to look good in the eyes of Europe and the Arabs, he could care less about Israel or the American people.

    I really hope the UK citizens vote Labour out, and that they would see this for the action that it is. If anything anyone rumored to be behind the killing deserves applause and a hero's welcome.

    And no one expects us to believe that the NSA, MI6, CIA, Mossad, KGB, and the rest of the intelligence agencies do not make use of foreign passports in "beyond-borders" operations.

    Which has what to do with the British having credible evidence the Israeli's did it?

    They do not.
    They say that they heavily suspect Israel is behind that operation, but that they do not know for certain.

    And it had more to do with your statement about passports.

    Let me quote from the article:

    "We have concluded that there are compelling reasons to believe Israel was responsible for the misuse of the British passports."
    A country simply cannot ignore major breaking of the law like that. This is not hugging the terrorists, as some one suggested, but protecting their own laws.
