United Arab Emirates - A HIT squad that killed a top Hamas commander in his Dubai hotel room injected him with a drug that induced a heart attack, photographed all the documents in his briefcase and left a “do not disturb” sign on the door.

The body of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, 50, was discovered by staff at the luxury Al Bustan Rotana hotel after lunch on January 20. There were no suspicious signs and local doctors diagnosed a heart attack.

Nine days later, after blood samples sent to Paris for analysis showed signs of poison, Hamas announced his death and blamed Mossad, the Israeli overseas intelligence service, for the assassination.

Al-Mabhouh was one of the founders of the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, the Islamic organisation that seized control of the Gaza strip in 2007.

According to Middle Eastern sources, al-Mabhouh, who was the official responsible for arranging arms supplies from Iran to Gaza, was tracked from the moment he boarded Emirates flight EK 912 at Damascus at 10.05 on January 19.

He was said to have been travelling on a false passport and on arrival in Dubai was followed by two men described by local police as “Europeans carrying European passports”.

Al-Mabhouh left Gaza in 1989 and moved to Damascus. Israel blamed him for the abduction of two Israeli soldiers, Avi Sasportas and Ilan Saadon, both later killed.

Hamas said it would retaliate for the assassination by targeting Israeli officials in Europe. Israel made no official response to the Hamas claims

It's hard to make out it it was Mossad with these things given that the arab states blame Israel for so much anyway. But so what - Let's take the blame for a job well done. One less terrorist like this guy has to be a good thing. More like it I say. A gut voch indeed!

If indeed this was done by the Mossad, we should be filled with pride at our brave soldiers who undertake these unbelievable missions. We won't know who they are, but they are heroes.

What a joke. Either he ate the first rich meal he has eaten in twenty years. I mean in Syria all he ate was goat and beans. In Dubai he ate a big steak and dessert. He isn't used to eating like a Dubai Sheik. They blame everything on Israel. If only it were true.

How many jewish people are going to pay for this with their life. Typical zionist trying to play like hashems soldier. Hashem does not need their help all he wants is for us yidden to behave in gulos like we are under the shibud of the goyim. Hisgaros b'imos will only keep us longer and longer in golus. May we see the real geulah today.

I doubt it was Israel, they have enough on their hands in Gaza, they don't need to go after someone as far as in Dubai, I think Fatah did it.

It's attitudes like this, in that they deny even the slightest degree of gratitude to Hashem for not letting us be annihilated, that delay the geulah!

Poison? Heart attack? Another report said he was electrocuted. Another report says he was strangled. Another report said he was suffocated. Does it matter? BTW. you don't need poison to induce a heart attack. just inject a high dose of potassium.

You got it wrong. The heart attack had nothing to do with the Dubai steaks. It was because in Dubai the don't always wait for gan eden for the 72 virgins.

You are such an Am Ha'aretz. Hisgarus B'umos has nothing to do with self-defense. Habo L'Horgo Hashkem L'Horgo is not Hisagarus B'umos. What would you do if an anti-Semite came to your house and wanted to kill you or your family, would you not defend yourself. Would you say if I defend myself, it is Hisgarus B'Umos? Such amoratzes is unbelievable.

You wouldn't know the real geula if it stepped on you. When Mosiach comes, I am sure that you will say that he is a Zionist and is guilty of Hisgaros B'Umos because he wants to take Klal Yisroel to Eretz Yisroel.

reminds me of a famous movie quote..with my own little twist at the end...
But I'm a superstitious man -- and
if some unlucky accident should befall him -- if he should get shot in the head by a police
officer -- or if he -- should hang himself in his jail cell -- or if he's struck by a bolt of
lightning -- then I'm going to blame some of the people in this room.
And that, I do INDEED LOOK FORWARD TO.....

they photographed all the documents, replaced them in their original place, left the door locked from the inside with a do not disturb sign on it and there is no security video cameras in the building. I don't think so. It was also nice of them to clean up the room because it's highly unlikely that a top terrorist sat their and politley allowed the two mossad agents to inject a poison in his thigh with out a fight.

It reminds of a Steven Wright line:
Somebody brought into my apartment, stole everything, and replaced it with an exact fascimile.

Sure. And I bet you that His Honor Judge Melvin Barasch and all the judges, including the women, on the NY Supreme Court agree with everything you say.

You Nazi collaborator. Shut up. When your grandparents were in the camps were you also against fighting? Did you protest against the allied armies that liberated the camps, because Hashem didn't need their help? Self defense is a mitzvah. Habo lehorgecho hashkem lehorgo.
