    This editorial smacks of a black and white cowboy movie where the tipsy hanging judge enters the court, his verdict already set. The Hanging Judge is not interested in evidence or proof, the culprit is pronounced guilty before any proof of guilt or innocense. The verdict is in, Israel is guilty. Why? Because the head of police in Dubai, yes Dubai, has stated as such. So what do we have. The Mossad is said to have used up to thirty agents and counting, odd? Of course. The Head of Police in Dubai is blaming Israel. Odd? of course not. Some of the plotters escaped to Iran. Odd? only if they were Israelis. Initially the Dubai Police procalimed that the gentleman had died of natural causes. Odd? yes especially when they now state that he was tortured! Seems we have a mistrial here. The verdict is already in, void of proof, armed only with the same old players playing their bit parts for the camera. I suggest we wait for the facts.
