MOSSAD'S KILLING MACHINE COMES TO BRITAIN
A killing war between Israel's Mossad and Islamic fanatics came closer this weekend in Britain. The Israeli intelligence agency has sent four members of its kidon assassination squad to this country, to join fifteen other handpicked katsas, its relentless field agents.
Their brief is to "disable" any of the "close to 50" British Muslims that the extremist Islamic group, Al-Muhajiroun, last week boasted were ready to carry out suicide missions similar to the one in Tel Aviv. Al-Muhajiroun spokesman, Asif Butt, said the 50 were "primed and ready to go".
The threat was sufficient for Mossad to send its own termination squad to head off any further threat to Israel or to synagogues and other Jewish institutions in this country.
"In Mossad-speak 'disable' means taking them out permanently", said an MI5 source grimly. "We know from past experience that the kidon can make murder look like an accident. It is their speciality".
Two of the kidon are women. They have been trained to be ready to sleep with someone to obtain vital information. Former Mossad chief Meir Amit said that "sex is a woman's weapon. Pillow talk is not a problem for her. But it takes a special kind of courage - to sleep with the enemy".
Mossad often operates outside the law of this country - or any country.
In the past, it has killed terrorists in the streets of Paris, Frankfurt and other European cities. In turn, it has lost over 100 agents in the past 50 years. Their memorial is a monument shaped like a human brain in a suburb of Tel Aviv.
In Britain, they are banned from using guns or explosives. But they are equipped with long and short-blade knives and piano wire to strangle. They are also trained in the art of melting into a hostile community. Some of the team have spent time undercover in Arab capitals. They speak all the languages of the Middle East - and can pass as Islamic extremists to get close to the fanatics they have come to hunt down in Britain. Israel has openly made it clear it fears Britain has become a haven for extremist preachers and their network of organisations dedicated to sowing hatred. They cite how terrorists have been able to hire expensive lawyers to fight extradition.
For years Khalid Fawwaz, wanted in the US for his alleged role in the bombing of the American embassy in Kenya, has used the courts in Britain for the past four years to avoid extradition. The expense of his fight has cost the taxpayer £428,000.
Israel accepts that the majority of this country's 1.8 Muslims are law abiding. But it says that since the attacks on the World Trade Centre and Pentagon, there has been an increase in extremists entering Britain under the guise of asylum seekers.
The attack by two British suicide bombers in Tel Aviv has led to Mossad being ordered to "carry the war to our enemies", said a senior Israeli intelligence source. The Mossad team in Britain know their actions are sanctioned by their government.
Rafi Eitan, a former director of operations, said: "we are like the official hangman or the doctor on Death Row who administers the lethal injection. We are simply fulfilling a sentence sanctioned by the prime minister of the day".
Since he has come to office, it is known that Israel's Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, has "sanctioned" a number of assassinations of terrorists who could not be brought before Israeli courts.
Victor Ostrovsky, a former member of the assassination team said that kidon always use a weapon appropriate to the situation. "Strangulation if the target is to be killed at night. Sometimes an aerosol or a syringe in the jugular to deliver a fast-acting nerve agent that kills and leaves no trace".
The decision to send in the Mossad came after urgent discussions between Ariel Sharon and Downing Street last weekend. Later, Mossad's new hardman chief, Meir Dagan, called Eliza Manningham-Buller, head of MI5, and told her that his men would co-operate closely with her agents.
Next day, katsas from Mossad headquarters in Brussels had flown into Heathrow. Twenty-four hours later, the four-man kidon had arrived on an El Al flight from Israel. Supporting them are Mossad yahalomin - specialists at bugging phones and buildings. Their targets include a Leicester-based charity, Interpal. It has been accused of fund-raising for Hamas and is currently under investigation by the Charity Commissioners. Interpal insists its fund-raising is "purely humanitarian".
Although the Home Office has officially banned 20 terror groups, Mossad believes many are still operating behind Islamic front organisations.
The deployment of such a massive Mossad team is the first time it has operated in such numbers in this country since 1987.
That year, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher ordered their operations to be shut down after a "honey pot" operation to kidnap Mordechai Vananu, the whistleblower who revealed secrets about Israel's nuclear arsenal. He fled to London.
Mossad traced him and a woman agent enticed Vananu - on the promise of sex - to go with her to Rome. A Mossad team was waiting there to drug and spirit Vananu back to Israel. He is still serving a life sentence.
Now, united in common cause, Mossad and MI5 are burrowing deep into the closed world of Islamic fundamentalism in this country.
Former operations chief Rafi Eitan, who has worked secretly in Britain said: "there has always been a love-hate relationship with British intelligence. But after the suicide bomber attack last week, that is over". Nevertheless, the Mossad team will virtually operate on its own rules.
"The one rule which overrides all others is: kill or be killed. That is why the kidon are here. They can make an assassination look like the perfect accident", said an Israeli intelligence source.
· Mossad. Israel's prime intelligence service. Formally known as Mossad le Aliyah Beth. Employs some 1,500 full-time staff. Less than 100 are field agents. But has an estimated one million informers within the Jewish Diaspora.
· Kidon. Mossad's state-backed assassination team. Based in the Negev Desert. Current strength said to be 48, six of them women. All are in their late twenties and superbly fit. Usually work in teams of four.
Their successes .
· Dr Gerald Bull. Canadian scientist and then the world's greatest expert of ballistics. Offered his services to Saddam Hussein. On March 22, 1990, a kidon team assassinated Bull in the doorway of his Brussels apartment. Mossad's Department of Psychological Warfare planted the story that Bull had been murdered Iraqi agents because he reneged on his deal with Saddam.
· Faithi Shkaki. Head of Islamic Jihad in 1995. Returning from Libya, a kidon unit were waiting for him in Malta. As he went shopping for presents for his wife and children back in Damascus, kidon struck. Shkaki was shot six times in the head as he emerged from a shop with his wrapped gifts. The kidon escaped undetected.
· Ali Hassan Salameh. Known as "The Red Prince". The man behind the Munich massacre of the Israeli athletes in 1972. Hid for years in West Beirut until the day a kidon team, one a woman, placed a car bomb on his route to work. He was blown to bits.
. and failures.
· Yasser Arafat. On six separate occasions, Mossad tried to assassinate the PLO leader in Lebanon and Tunisia. Each time Arafat escaped at the last moment. There was a suspicion in Mossad that a mole had leaked their plans. But it was never proven.
· Khalid Meshel. Fanatical Hamas leader. Lived near King Hussein's palace in Amman, Jordan. Father of seven children. In September, 1997, a kidon team tried to inject him on a street with a new lethal nerve agent. They failed. The uproar led to an international outcry. The kidon returned to Israel but were transferred to border patrol work.
Al-Qaida's, Hamas', and Hezbollah's have been there for years. Only now is it a concern.
Doesn't apply to a country that is harboring assassins, whether intentionally - e.g., Iraq, or through judicial incompetence, e.g., the U.S.
Bull. Look at what the writer is implying.

I like the idea of the Mossad declaring war on jihadists wherever the may be. Think they may be having 'series' accidents about now in the UK or France or Germany or Belgium or whereever rats hide in sewers.
Oh, really? I find it that the strongest supporters of Israel are non-Jews. The number of Jewish outside of Israel is ~10 million. To suggest that every tenth Jew is a Mossad informant is preposterous.
Another thing interesting. Death squad tactics belonged to another secret service of past. It is soviets.
Are you suggesting that "death squad tactics" began with Soviets? Go on, let's hear it.
Accually they opens the pandora box. Now everyone may hunt everyone.
Don't be naive. This is nothing new.
Whose naive? Remember Trotskii and crowbar?
As I said, this is nothing new, and you proved my point by referring to an incident from over half a century ago. Plenty acts of assasination and sabotage have happened over millenia. Nothing new.
Since soviet times the assasinations abroad diminished somehow.
Makes sense. Cold war is over. One would expect that as hostilities die down so does espionage, etc.
But if that practise are now blessed by Israel the honorable member of civilized community then it may surge again.
As conflicts surge so do assasinations. The biggest recent conflict was the Cold War. As you said, as that ended "the assasinations abroad diminished somehow.". The next biggest conflict is the West vs fundamentalist Islam. One would expect the assasinations,etc. to surge. Would you agree? Funny how you don't mention Syrian/Iranian death squads (Hizbollah) or palestinian Fatah/Hamas. Why should Israel fight with one arm behind its back?
What a moronic thing to say. That's as bad as the terrorists who claim that all infidels are evil.
Do you have any idea how much you sound like an islamic fundamentalist?
Slimers have been hunting infidels for years, only now are they being hunted back. Good news for innocents everywhere.
So who is Bull@hiting
You tell me. I just stated my opinion that this story sounds like BS.
LOL....So, the Mossad "secretly" sent over a suicide squad and this insignificant writer somehow knows about it? ...Yyyyeah.
This story was meant to leak. That's why it was leaked to Thomas.
This story was published on the 15th, 48 hours ago. That means this story has percolated into coffeeshops, teahouses, madrasses, and mosques all over Great Britain.
The Mossad is in Britain, and they're here to kill Jihadi....
Mossad has a mystical reputation among the Arabs. It is believed to be everywhere. It's existence and reputation cater to the Arab tendency to believe in conspiracies and plots. The fact that Mossad has come to Britain and intends to kill Jihadi with or without the cooperation of the British government will raise alarm among the Arabs.
Mossad's psywarops people will let slip that some jihadi have been turned and are providing information. Some of this is true, as there are probably some members of the movement who have doubts. When fanatics begin to ask questions, they are the most vulnerable. However, it will be Mossad's and MI-5's job to spread the word that more jihadi have turned than is really the case.
People will begin not to trust those they have trusted all their lives. Some people who had gone to ground and should have remained that way will feel compelled to move, quickly, to try to return to North Africa, the Middle East, or the Continent. The kidon will be waiting as well. That is when the terrorists will die.
Be Seeing You,
There are good and bad people in every religion and every racial group. Painting them all with one brush is childish.
Christians believe in witnessing and spreading the good word, but if you automatically hate everyone who is not Christian, who are you going to witness to? Somewhere we have got to believe in the spirit of God which inhabits all people. Yes, we must fight evil and these fanatics are evil, but to tar an entire people just because these vipers sprang from their midst is simplistic.
When asked how to discern evil Jesus told us "Ye shall know them by their fruit, a good tree will produce good fruit and an evil tree will produce evil fruit". He did not say all trees of a certain variety. Look at the quality of the people we have just freed. Yes, some are fanatics, but the great portion of them are gentle, intelligent, kind hearted people. They are Muslim. Look at the people of Afghanistan. They have not had the advantage of education and prosperity, and yet the greater portion of them are kind and hospitable and genuinely good. They are Muslim. The Turks (a Muslim country) has had good relations with the Israelies for years. Both Iran and Iraq had good relations with Israel prior to them being taken over by (Iraq) a secular dictatorship and (Iran) fundamentalists.
How are you going to fight evil if you can't even identify it?
I have heard many rumours about the death of Gerald Bull
but this is the first time I have seen them stated as a fact.
I never did understand this.. How does this work exactly?

Fine. He writes movies scripts, he's written some fiction (not especially GOOD fiction, but at least it was published), and his written some allegedly non-fiction books.
However, his "non-fiction" stuff is full of lurid espionage tales that cannot be checked back very easily (it's always based on "anonymous sources").
Gordon Thomas is about as credible as Jayson Blair--because he uses the same techniques.
