Would you be prepared to cross-dress? And kill a guest in an adjacent hotel room? If the answer to these questions is a resounding yes, and you can also act, enjoy luxury international travel with a twist and can carry off a convincing Irish or Australian accent, then the job could be yours.
The Israeli spy agency Mossad may be the target of international reproach since it allegedly killed the Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a Dubai hotel this month, but at home emerging details of the operation have generated Mossad mania.
It has never been more popular in Israel, with stores selling out of Mossad memorabilia and its official website reporting a soaring number of visitors interested in applying to become agents. Mossad has been restored to its glory days, said Ilan Mizrahi, a former deputy director of the agency, which is located in the affluent beach town of Herzliya, north of Tel Aviv.
Israel has neither confirmed nor denied its involvement in Mr al-Mabhouhs death despite increasingly confident announcements by Dubai police that they have linked Mossad to the killing. Of the 28 suspects named, 11 share identities with Israelis who hold dual citizenship.

Don’t get me wrong, ‘cuz I am definitely NOT into cross-dressing, LOL....but where do I sign up? Killing Islamic terrorists? Let’s go!
Mossad Groupies, is there anything that Pop Culture cannot do?
i would have never imagined such a thing
T Shirts! T Shirts! Get yer Mossad T Shirts here! T Shirts!!
I am looking for a career change myself.
Wrong advert. That's the one for President of the United States.
Seriously, if you want to have the opportunity to kill a major terrorist... the Mossad may just be the job you’re looking for!
Meet Schlomo Rabinowitz, the Mossad's deep, deep cover agent. This grainy image of him was taken from security footage taking during Mossad's famous operation "Wrath of God".

“Now I just wonder when Israel will contribute some troops to...well...any...of our war efforts.”
Does anyone want them to?
