Dubai seeks Israeli prime minister’s arrest over murder of Hamas militant

Dubai police said Tuesday they are seeking the arrest of Israel's prime minister and the head of its spy agency over the murder of a top Hamas militant in a hotel room of the Gulf city-state.

Police chief Dahi Khalfan said he had issued the demand for the arrest warrants as he was now certain they ordered the Cold War-style hit on Mahmud al-Mabhuh.

"I have presented the (Dubai) prosecutor with a request for the arrest of (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu and the head of Mossad," Meir Dagan, said Khalfan.

"I am now completely sure that it was Mossad," said the police lieutenant general.

Mabhuh, a founder of the Palestinian Islamist Hamas organisation's military wing, was found dead in a room of the luxurious Al Bustan Rotana hotel near Dubai's airport on January 20.

Dubai police have identified 26 suspects from the hit squad murder they say bore the hallmarks of the Mossad. The Hamas man had been drugged and then suffocated.

Khalfan said last month that Dubai would issue an arrest warrant for Netanyahu if Israel was found to be implicated in the murder of the Palestinian militant.

Netanyahu "will be the first to be wanted for justice as he would have been the one who signed the decision to kill al-Mabhuh in Dubai," he was quoted as saying in The National newspaper on February 5.

"We will issue an arrest warrant against him," said the English-language newspaper published in Abu Dhabi.

Police say the suspects entered Dubai on fake passports using the identities of 12 people from Britain, six from Ireland, four from France, three Australians and a German, before fleeing the Gulf emirate.

Two members of the hit squad which killed Mabhuh had "returned to the United States after passing through a European country," said Dhalfan, who on Monday said the suspects were hiding out in Israel where they could avoid arrest.

Israeli officials have refused to confirm or deny the reports.

But Israel's media sees the killing as Mossad's work, and the probe has caused a diplomatic headache for the Jewish state with the countries whose passports were used summoning its envoys to hear angry protests.

On Tuesday, Ireland's Sinn Fein defended a town council's decision to remove a page in its guestbook signed by the Israeli ambassador over the alleged use of Irish passports in the Dubai murder.

The Israeli embassy in Dublin described the incident as "a rare exception" initiated by "publicity seeking" by Sinn Fein.

In Lebanon, an MP representing the Shiite militant group Hezbollah said security must be stepped up for all foreigners entering the country as they could be secret agents like the assassins in Dubai.

Australia meanwhile said that it was sending police to Israel to investigate how its passports were used in the elaborate plot

Khalfan told AFP Western passports would be closely inspected following the Mabhuh's murder but that Jews would not be singled out.

"We respect all people and all religions, whether they are Muslims, Jews, Christians or others," Dahi Khalfan told AFP, asked about remarks attributed to him that "all Jews" would be prevented from entering Dubai.

He said immigration services would be on their guard "after Israel's abuse of passports from Western countries," although there was no way of knowing if a Westerner entering the United Arab Emirates was an Israeli with dual citizenship.

"The officers of the immigration service will now look twice if they have any doubt about the documents or photos, and will scan them," he said.
All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

The Arabs crack me up sometimes. They are like the Keystone Cops with their whining about being wronged by Israel. How funny is it that they want to arrest the PM for killing a known terrorist. You keep telling people long enough that Hamas is a Palistinian rights organization and people will start to believe it, forgetting it's actually a radical Islamic terrorist organization hellbent on the complete removal of Israel/Jews from the region.

And has anyone noticed how the West Bank has been so silent for months now? Hezbollah who? It seems there is now just one basic arab organization in the occuppied territories, Hamas.

well im sure you can find more than me if you do a search, heres a few :-

"Former US President Jimmy Carter has said that Hamas is prepared to accept the right of Israel to "live as a neighbour next door in peace". "


http://www.antiwar.com/orig/rupp.php?articleid=10195

"RR: Have I understood you correctly that you would be prepared to negotiate with Israel and accept it within its borders of 1967, before it started its wars of aggression, stealing Palestinian land?

KM: Good, that has been made clear.

RR: In the West, Hamas is generally depicted as being absolutely against talks with Israel and [it's believed] that Hamas only wants to drive the Israeli Jews into the sea.

KM: This is not correct. Killing Jews is not our aim. For centuries we have lived in Palestine peacefully with Jews and Christians of all kinds. We are fighting Israel because it occupies our land and oppresses our people. We are fighting Israel to finish this occupation. We want to live freely on our land just as other nations. We want to have our own country just like other people. But the Zionist movement came from all over the world to occupy our land. And the real owner of the land has been kicked out. This is the root of the problem.

Because of many factors, we now accept to build a Palestinian state within the borders of 1967. But that doesn't mean that we recognize Israel. But we are prepared to make a long-term truce with Israel. Accepting the status of Israel without recognizing it.

RR: But no recognition? Doesn't that mean continued tensions and war?

KM: No. There are plenty of examples where no recognition does not mean war. China and Taiwan, for example, have not recognized each other, but they trade and cooperate with each other. By withholding a formal recognition, we just don't want to give Israel the legitimacy for having taken our land in the first place.

"Hamas leader-in-exile Khaled Meshal says the Islamic militant group is ready to accept a Palestinian state based on the 1967 lines, according to an interview with the Wall Street Journal published on Friday.

"We along with other Palestinian factions in consensus agreed upon accepting a Palestinian state on the 1967 lines," Meshal told the Wall Street Journal, adding "this is the national program. This is our program. This is a position we stand by and respect."

Meshal is quoted as saying that Hamas would accept international peace initiatives, saying "Hamas and other Palestinian groups are ready to cooperate with any American, international or regional effort to find a just solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict, to end the Israeli occupation and to grant the Palestinian people their right of self-determination.""

"HAMAS accepts the existence of the state of Israel but will not officially recognise it until a Palestinian state is set up in the West Bank and Gaza, says the Hamas leader in Damascus, Khaled Meshal.

Mr Meshal softened his anti-Israel rhetoric in comments to Reuters, suggesting that Hamas does not seek the destruction of Israel as written in its charter. He said that Israel is a "reality" and "there will remain a state called Israel - this is a matter of fact".

He added: "The problem is not that there is an entity called Israel. The problem is that the Palestinian state is non-existent."

Thank you. Now consider those words, when they were spoken, and look at the situation, and tell me Hamas is serious about peace. Seperate from your opinions of Israel, is Hamas really trying to make peace? But the reality is that neither brings peace to the table. God will bring the facts, and both sides will lose, because the worldly arrogance of both sides, which really are one people, cousins, all of them deny the very peace that was sent to them all, Jesus Christ, and thus they all suffer.

Beware the person that steps forward with a peace plan that the world governments can't refuse.

"Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:" Luke 12:51 (KJV)

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." 1 Thessalonians 5:3 (KJV)
