WikiLeaks: UAE considered keeping Hamas hit quiet


news.yahoo.com

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Diplomatic cables recently released by WikiLeaks indicate authorities in the United Arab Emirates debated whether to keep quiet about the high-profile killing of a Hamas operative in Dubai in January.

The documents also show the UAE sought U.S. help in tracking down details of credit cards Dubai police believe were used by a foreign hit squad involved in the killing. The spy novel-like slaying, complete with faked passports and assassins in disguise, is widely believed to be the work of Israeli secret agents.

Dubai officials didn't discuss Mahmoud al-Mabh

Another cable outlines a request the Emirates made on Feb. 24 for U.S. help in tracking down cardholder details and other information relating to credit cards linked to the suspected killers.

Dubai police say many of the alleged members of the hit squad used prepaid credit cards issued by a bank in Iowa that were distributed through another U.S. company known as Payoneer.

U.S. embassy officials passed on details of the request to the FBI and urged Washington to handle it urgently, according to the cable.

Dubai's government media office said it was looking into the disclosures and had no immediate comment on Tuesday.


Wow is the UAE on Israeli payroll? And why did the U.S. betray Israel by trying to find the Mossad officers? Perhaps UAE was rewarding them with oil.

Well, obviously the UAE have their own corner that they are fighting in the whole Israel/Palestine kerfuffle, but fighting too hard isn't in their interests tradewise - if they upset the US too much, too frequently, then maybe the US will actually start punishing UAE rather than randomly selected alternative middle-eastern targets who don't have such a long trade history.

(although, as with any modern war, the ones who actually get punished are rarely the ones responsible, even if they are the countrymen of those).

US-UAE-Israel

US troops in UAE.
US is unconditional supporter of Israel.
Mossad is the intel agency of Israel.

Take the three small sentences above.
US company was involved.
US probably knew about it.
US didn't snitch on Mossad, US got itself out of the picture. No one can touch Mossad members any ways, they are somewhere having a fantastic holiday. It doesn't matter whether their identity is compromised or not, Israel is untouchable just like Mossad.
