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-Mabhouh’s 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.

Opticians have reported a rise in sales of the horn-rimmed glasses in the style worn by 14 of the 26 suspects, T-shirts with Mossad logos are selling out at stores and the agency has experienced a flood of applicants.


Glasses like those worn by some suspects are flying off the shelves

Although no new jobs have been posted for half a year, a new statement on the Mossad website reads: “You have an opportunity to create a new reality where you can play the leading role. If you possess intelligence and sophistication, you can make a

I wonder if they’d take non-Israelis. They could recruit on FreeRepublic if they did! :-)

To the anti-Israeli British left wing media it is...unless of course it involves killing IRA terrorists who used to kill British soldiers, then the British left wing media are all for it.

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".

LOL! Deep, deep cover.

He's really good at asking dumb questions in press conferences. Fits right in with the rest of the press corps. You'd never know she was a he.

Plus - imagine that face being the last thing you ever see, just before Schlomo kills you with his thumbs.

Mossad plays hardball.

To the terrorist. Other terrorists might be a little upset, too. Did Obama make a statement? I love that the FR spell check still does not recognize "Obama".

It is great that the Mossad is out killing terrorists.

Now I just wonder when Israel will contribute some troops to...well...any...of our war efforts.

So...when will Israel be committing some troops?

“Did Obama make a statement?”

I wish. Maybe all those “Jews” who voted for him would have second thoughts.

Exactly right.

It’s sensitive enough just using Jewish bullets. Can’t be seen using their eeevil troops as well.

In some news article, they stated that there was a television call in poll in Israel and 87% of the respondants to the poll answered 'YES' to the question, Would You Let YOUR Passport Be Used In Such An Operation?

I'll bet the percentage would be even higer on Free Republic, LOL

Yeah. We all get a penny whenever they’re used.
