Cipora suggests there is no proof of Israel's involvement. In fact it is up to the countries whose passports have been forged to decide what level of proof they require to determine that Israel was involved, and that they will no longer consider it a friend- as Mr Rudd explains. All of the genuine passport holders have visited or are resident of Israel as well. Israel is the only common denominator. No other state could have on its own gained those details, without some implausible massive effort merely to frame Israel. Israel also had a motive, the history of such actions, and the capability. I know if I was Australia, the UK, France, Germany, Ireland, what conclusion I would arrive at; and there's enough proof for me. A few more friends down the drain.
