I'm not saying it was Mossad. I am saying it was an intelligence agency. A first rate one.

I'm also saying the Dubai Counter-Intelligence are very, very good indeed.

Another day, another murder.

Yet another example of why extradition treaties are typically a good thing - assuming that this was in retaliation for the murders محمود عبد الرؤوف المبحوح allegedly performed (and apparently confessed to).

Assassination is what happens when a powerful, violent group feels that it's impossible to gain justice against an individual in any other manner.

I have long said that there is seldom any justification for violence (to be absolutely clear and hedging my position, there is never any justification for civil violence based on prejudice). However, political assasinations are, to me at least, a different issue. For example, in hindsight, I don't think anyone but their cohorts would have been upset if Hitler or Pol Pot would have been assainated prior to their respective deeds. Granted these are extreme examples and seldom is such a matter of another's intentions so clear cut as in the above examples...obviously that is the conundrum when any assasination is carried out, i.e., who decides, based on what criteria, when someone is evil enough. Nonetheless, I feel that all but a relative few of the chosen have any feel for the very real evil that resides in geopolitical sphere; I think it would be quite disturbing to most of us if we had that knowledge.

I thouroughly enjoyed these videos, Zoe...thanks for posting them.
