Meir Dagan: the mastermind behind Mossad's secret war
The Telegraph ^ | 2/21/2010 | Uzi Mahnaimi

Posted on 02/20/2010 10:29:49 PM PST by bruinbirdman

IN early January two black Audi A6 limousines drove up to the main gate of a building on a small hill in the northern suburbs of Tel Aviv: the headquarters of Mossad, the Israeli secret intelligence agency, known as the “midrasha”.

Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, stepped out of his car and was greeted by Meir Dagan, the 64-year-old head of the agency. Dagan, who has walked with a stick since he was injured in action as a young man, led Netanyahu and a general to a briefing room.

According to sources with knowledge of Mossad, inside the briefing room were some members of a hit squad. As the man who gives final authorisation for such operations, Netanyahu was briefed on plans to kill Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a member of Hamas, the militant Islamic group that controls Gaza.

Mossad had received intelligence that Mabhouh was planning a trip to Dubai and they were preparing an operation to assassinate him there, off-guard in a luxury hotel. The team had already rehearsed, using a hotel in Tel Aviv as a training ground without alerting its owners.

The mission was not regarded as unduly complicated or risky, and Netanyahu gave his authorisation, in effect signing Mabhouh’s death warrant.

Typically on such occasions, the prime minister intones: “The people of Israel trust you. Good luck.”

Days later on January 19, Emirates flight EK912 took off from the Syrian capital Damascus at 10.05am. On board, as Mossad had anticipated, was Mabhouh, who was also known by the nom de guerre of Abu al-Abd. The Israelis suspected he planned to travel from Dubai to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas to arrange for an arms shipment to Gaza.

As the Airbus A330 rose into the

Surgical strike, no collateral damage. Scratch one terrorist.

Better than a Predator UAV assassination which is approved by 42 contributors to the Coalition of the Willing in Afghanistan.

The author appears to have taken extensive "dramatic license. And he/she does get a little silly:

However, few believe that Mossad will give up the secret war it has long waged against Israel’s enemies.

"Few"? Sorry, Uzi, but you couldn't find even one if you tried. Ridiculous.

In Israel the reaction is mixed. Few shed tears over the death of one of Hamas’s top men, but there is dismay that Mossad may have damaged the country’s reputation abroad.

LOL, so Israel has simpletons like our own Democrats, little fat girls who care what "the world", ie., the Euro-socialist press, thinks.

Interesting that they were able to get the room directly opposite their target. Almost seems to imply an associate within the hotel.

Frantzie here is some information for you.

Yehuda, please stop with the name calling it gets us no where. We need facts and links. Can you confirm or disuade give an analyse any of the following?

FROM:
http://74.125.95.132/search?q=cache:vqqQH9VokvEJ:www.erichufschmid.net/TFC/Bollyn-Emanuel.html+Martha+Smulevitz,&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

The new “golden boy” of the Democrat Party, the Israeli-American congressman Rahm Emanuel, is the son of a terrorist.

Really, I am not making this up, the chief power-broker of the Democrat Party, the 5-and-a-half foot foul-mouthed Israeli named Rahm, is the son of terrorist – a real living terrorist.

So, what do we do as citizens of the land of the free and the home of the brave fighting the War on Terror?

Do we run and hide from the foul-mouthed little Israeli who danced ballet and swears for effect - or do we laugh? Or do we demand answers? How can we respect a U.S. Congressman who served in a foreign army and whose father was a terrorist?

Rep. Rahm Emanuel, the Democrat congressman for the 5th District of Illinois in Chicago is the son of an Israeli terrorist. Rahm’s father, Benjamin, was a member of the Irgun, the Zionist terrorist organization that coined a new word as they blew up hotels, train stations, and other buildings in Palestine in the 1930s and 40s.

Rahm was an Israeli citizen until he was 18 years old, when for obvious reasons he hid his Israeli passport in his underwear drawer. In 1991, however, he pulled his Israeli passport out and went and reportedly joined the Israeli Army to defend Zion from Saddam’s Scuds.

Irgun, the army of his father, is short for Irgun Zvai Leumi, which supposedly means something like “National Military Organization” in Hebrew. As a matter of fact, the Irgun was simply a terrorist Zionist group that operated in Palestine from 1931 to 1948. They killed innocent Palestinians and British soldiers and blew up buildings.

After 1948 they became part of the new Israeli government and did the same thing. In September 2001 they put their skills to work in New York City and Washington to kick start the “war on terror” - a conflict long promoted by their chief architect, Bibi Netanyahu, son of the former secretary of Ze’ev Jabotinsky.

The Irgun even has a website with pictures of the buildings they blew up before they demolished the World Trade Center with Thermite and high explosives:
www.etzel.org.il

In Israel, the Irgun is referred to as Etzel, an acronym of the group’s Hebrew initials. The Irgun was considered a terrorist organization by the British authorities as well as by mainstream Zionist and Jewish organizations, such as the Jewish Agency, the Haganah and the Histadrut. (It just has not made it onto the U.S. State Department’s list of terrorist organizations – even after blowing up the World Trade Center. Some people are slow to learn.)

Irgun was founded by Ze’ev Jabotinsky and the relationship with Jabotinsky’s Revisionist Zionism made it the predecessor to Israel’s right-wing Herut and Likud parties.

I read somewhere in the past year that Soros and Rahm’s mother had a connection. Since seeing this thread have been looking for it.

Have not been able to find the original post. Do either of you have information that would confirm it or give us a place to look? Most of the material on his mother has been pulled and there is the same two sentence sentence repeated over and over again.

THIS is the only different material:
Martha Smulevitz,(rahm E’s Mother) the daughter of a Moldavian immigrant and union organizer

Here is the general information on Wiki regarding Soros:

Early life
Soros was thirteen years old in March 1944 when Nazi Germany took military control over Hungary.[13] Soros worked for the Jewish Council,[6] which had been established during the Nazi occupation of Hungary to forcibly carry out Nazi and Hungarian government anti-Jewish measures. Soros later described this time to writer Michael Lewis:

The Jewish Council asked the little kids to hand out the deportation notices. I was told to go to the Jewish Council. And there I was given these small slips of paper...It said report to the rabbi seminary at 9 a.m....And I was given this list of names. I took this piece of paper to my father. He instantly recognized it. This was a list of Hungarian Jewish lawyers. He said, “You deliver the slips of paper and tell the people that if they report they will be deported.[14]

To avoid his son’s being apprehended by the Nazis, Soros’s father paid a Ministry of Agriculture employee to have Soros spend the summer of 1944 living with him and posing as the godson. Young Soros had to hide his Jewishness even as the official was overseeing the confiscation of Jewish property.[15]

In the following year, Soros survived the battle of Budapest in which Soviet and German forces fought house-to-house through the city. Soros first traded currencies and jewelry during the Hungarian hyperinflation of 1945–1946.

Soros emigrated to England in 1947 and graduated from the London School of Economics in 1952. While a student of the philosopher Karl Popper, Soros worked as a railway porter and as a waiter. A university tutor requested aid for Soros, and he received 40 pounds from a Quaker charity.[16] He eventually secured an

Indeed, he was.

We also had a thread about Blago that included a lot of info about Rahm and his father, here.

Here’s more from the link:

The late Sherman Skolnick of Chicago called Rahm Emanuel the “Acting Deputy Chief for North America of the Mossad – Israeli Intelligence.”
cloakanddagger.de Rahm Emanuel

Skolnick went on to say that Emanuel’s father Benjamin had been “part of the Israeli assassin team that murdered Sweden’s Count [Folke] Bernadotte” in 1948. Bernadotte was the envoy of the United Nations in Palestine who sought to find a solution to the UN Partition Plan that gave Palestinian land to Jews from “beyond the pale.”

Was Skolnick correct? Skolnick does not document his claims so I checked into his allegations.

“Beyond the pale” would certainly describe where Rahm Emanuel’s family came from. His father’s family came to Palestine from somewhere in the Ukraine in 1917, according to what Dr. Benjamin M. Emanuel told me the other day. Dr. Emanuel now lives on the appropriately named Locust Road in Wilmette, Illinois.

Benjamin, speaking with a thick Israeli accent, told me that his father’s name was Ezekiel Auerbach and that his mother’s name was Pinina or something like that. He said it meant “pearl” in Hebrew. Asked about his role in the Irgun, Ben told me he had been a “simple soldier.”

Yes, Ben, but serving as “simple soldier” in a terrorist organization makes you a terrorist. And the fact that you served in a terrorist organization 60 years ago makes no difference. You know, same rules for Nazis and terrorists.

All the information on Rahm’s father is interesting, but the point *is* that Obama, Rahm and Soros are NOT friends to Israel or friends of Israel’s.

Bibi knows it and Israel knows it, too.

Heck, most of us in the US know it also.

And the claim that Rahm and Soros are Mossad is ridiculous.

Just like winding you up cause you are a wack job. I support and know conservative Jews. A few even left Europe and have said it is finished.

I loathe muzzies but liberal Jews who voted for Hussein are not that far behind the muslims. I feel the same way for liberal Christians, athetists, agnostics, Sikhs, whatever who voted for Hussein and are liberal.

Pallies? Christian ones like Christian Lebanese are usually very civilized.

I do not read the links on Google - cannot be bothered. Odd how Rahm Mossad has 259,000 hits and Axelrod Mossad has 80,000+.

I am not a truther. I pulled nothing from any site. You mention Rense. I went to that site once when Leo Donofrio going to be on that show. Leo saw the holocaust denier or some other crap on there and immediately cancelled.

Rahm, Axelrod and Soros - all Mossad.

The servant. Semitic roots are fun that way. Hence the Hebrew/Appalachian "Obediah" is equivalent to the Arabic "Abdullah".
