    "An utter lack of proportion." Man, you said it. Your first paragraph is positively breathless with hyperbole. "Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was one of Hamas' key men," That's why he was travelling alone, without ANY protection, right? Remind me how many of Israel's "key men" travel without a single bodyguard. "The assassination represents a mortal blow to Hamas" A mortal blow will, of course, kill Hamas. Are you really claiming that taking out *this* dude will lead to the destruction of Hamas? "he understands that if the assassins were able to get to al-Mabhouh, they can also get to him" He always travels with bodyguards, unlike this dude. "The risks are well known: If the agents are caught, there will be tension with the country whose passports were used." Err, no, guys, you also put the REAL passport holders at risk i.e. Hamas may just decide to whack THEM as *their* message to *you* not to try this trick again. Or didn't that ever occur to you?
