Dubai seeks global dragnet for Hamas man’s slaying

Dubai police appealed for an international manhunt Tuesday after releasing names and photos of an alleged 11-member European hit squad accused of stalking and killing a Hamas commander last month in a plot that mixed cold precision with spy caper disguises such as fake beards and wigs.

Powerline thinks this was done by Mossad, or a similar Israeli agency.

I doubt it. They don’t leave this many loose ends, especially the security camera footage.  I suppose they may have paid for it.  On the other hand, it could simply be a political foe who fronted the cash.  Fatah doesn’t exactly love Hamas.  In fact, this kind of thing has happened before, but is just more likely to be ignored when there isn’t an obvious potential Israeli assassin angle.

I suppose it’s possible the hit was done by a private assassination service for hire, though it seems they didn’t use bullets that move in curves.

I think I may start insisting that everyone who goes to faculty meetings go through a metal detector on the way into the room.  And I won’t assume I’m safe from that slightly crazy looking Medieval Literature professor, just because he’s sitting on the opposite side of the computer projector.

His beard looks fake to me.

    Four were dressed as fishermen from the sea of Galilee
    One dressed like tax collector
    One was from Bethsaida
    One rarely showed his face, and didn’t say much
    One didn’t look like he believed what was going on
    One was short
    One was passionate
    One was illusive
    And one was the bag-man
    Oops. That’s 12
