What was the real value of Mabhouh that was worth risking the lives of so many Israeli agents (so far 11 targeted by Interpol with 15 more to come, all known by picture, and recognized by neighbors)? As far as is known, Mabhouh was involved in the abduction and murder of 2 Israeli soldiers in 1989 (for which his home in Gaza was blown up at the time), and in recent years was managing arms purchases for Hamas in Iran and perhaps elsewhere. If such a man is assassinated is he "irreplaceable"? Sounds nonsensical. Iran is a more than willing seller, perhaps a free giver. With Mabhouh gone, his position can be filled overnight. Mossad must have seen the job as a "challenge" to itself, to risk such a ridiculously high number af agents for prestige. Unfortunately, Prime Minister Netanyahu has a hard time considering the effects of his actions, and approved the job. (He is the minister in charge of Mossad.) Somebody in the government should start comparing potential gain/cost ratio!!!
