Does the Mossad have a spy in Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh’s office?
By Andrew L. Jaffee, netwmd.com
The Hamas government in Gaza denied reports that the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, had recruited an employee at the office of Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. …
Hamas stated that it “will take legal action against an unnamed ‘suspicious’ website which reported that an employee in Haniyeh’s office was arrested…” Hamas’ Interior Minister said his terrorist goons “recently arrested a ‘large number’ of citizens suspected of spying for Israel.” He continued by saying, “We will strike with an iron fist anyone who harms security in Gaza.”
It wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Mossad, Israel’s world-renowned intelligence agency, has a spy in the Hamas prime minister’s office. To borrow from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, methinks Hamas doth protest too much — the terrorist group, rather than so much as protesting, “objects so much as to lose credibility.”
For years, Israel has had operatives almost wherever it wants. Some Palestinians, whether for profit, for despising their “leaders,” or for a combination of both, have been willing to risk their lives to spy for the Mossad. After all, “During Operation Pillar of Defense in November, six suspected spies were summarily executed on the streets of Gaza.” What a disturbed world Palestinians have created for themselves.
