The US, Russia, England, Chinese, every Arab country, has their intelligence operatus which do similar acts across the entire planet, and have done so for centuries. During WW2, the Brits, American and German intelligence agencies had their host of spies in enemy waters and on land. It's part of being a country. Israel has Mossad and other agencies..sometimes operations fail, sometimes they succeed. This one seems too stupid to be from Israel. But, if so, it must never admit to it. Why didn't hand Kennedy for the failed Bay of Pigs..an over operation? I mean, the French didn't have spies and commit crimes in Algeria or their other territories? Come on. But let's agree that this Hamas thug was living on borrowed time. I would have done the deed in a Tel Aviv minute given the chance..grew a beard, added a wig, and heavy eyebrows..and hid forever in Boro Park....oh for the chance. Wowwo.
