    The subject is very important to all parties. This and similar articles need to be clear and balanced. I have a few comments: 1 It was an exaggeration to claim that "all Israelis with dual passports will be suspected of being intelligence agents." 2 The article claims that the group that took out Mabhouh was exposed due to one weak point, but that's another incorrect statement. The group made numerous mistakes. They profoundly underestimated the surveillance capabilities of Dubai, in spite of its fame. They also underestimated the professionalism of its police, in spite of their reputation. The group was confident, professional, fast. 3 The answer is 'Yes.' 4 The group reveals itself for showing no serious regard for the local authorities. The group reveals itself for being so expertly trained. The group reveals itself for being well-funded. The group reveals itself by the ethnicity of its participants. The group reveals itself for including a woman. Must we pretend not to know?
