...when they plan such missions? It should be obvious by now that Germany didn't take it lightly when "Brodsky" misused the fast track process established for Jews of German ancestry to claim German citizenship (avoiding the usual, long immigration proceedings) and to get new documents for themselves. Didn't Mossad take it into account that this way of obtaining a genuine passport for an assasination mission, through identy theft of a real Israeli citizen, would lead to serious diplomatic problems, and harm the German/Israeli relationship? Was this seen as a reasonable price for that small gain, did the planners believe that their agents would escape unnoticed, or can it be that the intelligence agency doesn't take political aspects into account at all? It's self-evident that Israelis don't want to damage their meritous intelligence service, but when a mission results in political damage that vastly exceeds the small satisfaction of holding a proven terrorist accountable, there should at least be an investigation into the reasons for that failure!
