Finally, a diplomatic response from Israel! Rather than continuing to over-react, there seems to be a sense of maturity and proportion developing. After the 1987 incident when an Israeli operative left forged British passports in a telephone box in Germany, Israel promised that UK passports would not be used in future operations. The decision to do so placed Mossad in an impossible position vis-a-vis the UK government with regard to Dubai. Needing the support of the UK as a permanent member of the UK Security Council and a leading member of the EU and NATO, Israel finally seems to have sensed that British support against Iran might be more important than an obscure Palestinian individual!
