    The moralizing of some people here, like Chris, is sickening. The US led coalitions dirty tricks brigade (of which the UK takes on active role) has been in full swing for a decade now. Renditions, torture, extra-judicial killings, 'black' prisons - you name it and the west has done it. Mossad operations are quaint by comparison. New Zealand has been brought up by a few commentators. I remember the Rainbow Warrior bombing and just as David Lange said, Britain royally screwed us over. The French agents were released due to British pressure and threats to strangle our economy (thanks for that Chris). Israel's fight against terror is no less immediate than the west's but they have to do so without the overwhelming support of the western intelligence network. If the Hamas man had been wanted by US or British intelligence his removal from the earth may have have been less dramatic, but no less permanent.
