As Netanyahu and May Chat, a Large Nest of Israeli Spies in London Exposed 413


The Israeli Embassy has seventeen Israeli “technical and administrative staff” granted visas by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. The normal number for an Embassy that size would be about two. I spoke to two similar size non-EU Embassies this morning, one has two and one zero. I recall I dealt with an angry Foreign Minister during my own FCO career incensed his much larger High Commission had been refused by the FCO an increase from three to four technical and administrative staff.

Shai Masot, the Israeli “diplomat” who had been subverting Britain’s internal democracy with large sums of cash and plans to concoct scandal against a pro-Palestinian British minister, did not appear in the official diplomatic list.

I queried this with the FCO, and was asked to put my request in writing. A full three weeks later and after dozens of phone calls, they reluctantly revealed that Masot was on the “technical and administrative staff” of the Israeli Embassy.

This is plainly a nonsense. Masot, as an ex-Major in the Israeli Navy and senior officer in the Ministry of Strategic Affairs, is plainly senior to many who are on the Diplomatic List, which includes typists and personal assistants. There are six attaches – support staff – already on the List.

Masot was plainly not carrying out technical and administrative duties. The term is a formal one from the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, and it is plain from the convention that technical and administrative staff are in official status lower than the diplomatic staff. The majority of support activities are carried out in all Embassies by locally engaged staff already resident in the host country, but a very small number of technical and administrative staff may be allowed visas for work in particularly secure areas. They may be an IT and communications technician, possibly a cleaner in the most sensitive physical areas, and perhaps property management.

These staff do not interact with politicians of the host state or attend high level meetings beside the Ambassador. The level at which Shai Masot was operating was appropriate to a Counsellor or First Secretary in an Embassy. Masot’s formal rank as an officer in his cover job in the Ministry of Strategic Affairs would entitle him to that rank in the Embassy if this were a normal appointment.

The Al Jazeera documentaries plainly revealed that Masot was working as an intelligence officer, acquiring and financing “agents of influence”. It is simply impossible that the FCO would normally grant seventeen technical and administrative visas to support sixteen diplomats, when six of the sixteen are already support staff. The only possible explanation, confirmed absolutely by Masot’s behaviour, is that the FCO has knowingly connived at settling a large nest of Israeli spies in London. I fairly put this to the FCO and they refused to comment.

I asked my questions on 10 January. On 12 January the FCO asked me to put them in writing. On 2 February they finally replied to the first three questions, but refused to comment on questions 4 or 5 about involvement of the intelligence services in Masot’s appointment.

On 2 February I sent these follow-up questions to the FCO by email:

FCO Media Department have replied that they refuse to give me any further information on the subject, and that I should proceed through a Freedom of Information request so the FCO can assess properly whether the release of any further information is in the national interest.

What is it they are always saying to us: if you have got nothing to fear, you have got nothing to hide?

I am confident I know what they are hiding, and that is FCO complicity in a large nest of Israeli spies seeking to influence policy and opinion in the UK in a pro-Israeli direction. That is why the government reaction to one of those spies being caught on camera plotting a scandal against an FCO minister, and giving £1 million to anti-Corbyn MPs, was so astonishingly muted. It is also worth noting that while the media could not completely ignore the fantastic al Jazeera documentaries that exposed the scandal, it was a matter of a brief article and no follow up digging.

This was not just a curiosity, it reveals a deep-seated problem for our democracy. I intend to continue picking at it.

  • Sayanomore !

    Just like Obama found his abstention (v veto) re settlements vote had reached Netanyahu well before the UN vote itself, there are similar “patriots” within the FO too. Sayanomore about the sayanim !!

  • Jim McSporran

    Just a pedantic point regarding an otherwise thought provoking piece. I assume ‘pro-Corbyn MPs’ is a typo & should read ‘anti-Corbyn’.

  • Charles Crawford

    Interesting but (need one say?) inconclusive. You need to compare the Israeli embassy with other embassies in London that do not employ many if any Locally Engaged staff for security or other reasons, not least giving their own people nice jobs in London. See eg Russia. I suspect you’ll find plenty of examples of lots of technical and administrative people on their lists too.

    Of course some of these people on the list may be Israeli intelligence agents. So what? The issue is how many of them are declared.

    • craig Post author

      Charles

      But in the less rarified bits of the FCO you seldom visited, there is a section whose sole purpose in life is to stop Embassies getting visas to bring people in for a comfy life in London. I think Iraq, Argentina and Ecuador are fair comparators both in terms of size and the kind of security frictions with the UK you mentioned. The FCO refused to give me an answer. I spoke to two Embassies this morning who did not want to be named, but they are not unfair comparators and are the right size, and the answers were zero and two.

      I think the issue is not declared or not, (undoubtedly a mixture) but acting against UK targets including ministers.

      • Why be ordinary

        It should, of course, be the business of Mi5 to find the “undeclared” ones and to check that the “declared” ones are behaving themselves.

        The risky thing about “A&T” is that it does not accord full immunity “immunity from civil and administrative jurisdiction of the receiving State specified in paragraph 1 of article 31 shall not extend to acts performed outside the course of their duties” – so unlike a full diplomat, any assertion of immunity would require an explanation of why what was being done was part of the job description.

    • John Spencer-Davis

      Uh, this is “so what”, Crawford.

      “I am confident I know what they are hiding, and that is FCO complicity in a large nest of Israeli spies seeking to influence policy and opinion in the UK in a pro-Israeli direction.

      Not a word about any of this from Crawford.

    Israel reminds me of Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, a fungus that makes zombie ants do all the work, then kills them.

    A tropical fungus has adapted to infect ants and force them to chomp, with surprising specificity, into perfectly located leaves before killing them and taking over their bodies. The American Naturalist’s September issue explores the astounding accuracy with which this fungus compels ants to create its ideal home.

    The Ophiocordyceps unilateralis fungus infects Camponotus leonardi ants that live in tropical rainforest trees. Once infected, the spore-possessed ant will climb down from its normal habitat and bite down, with what the authors call a “death grip” on a leaf and then die. But the story doesn’t end there. “The death grip occurred in very precise locations,” the authors write.

      A very accurate and concise account of the way in which human societies are run – in reality, as opposed to theory. The whole art of being an exploitative oppressor is to do so without anyone ever noticing your presence – let alone your activities.

      • lysias

        A successful parasite does not kill its host. It remains to be seen what Israel will end up doing in the long run.

          • lysias

            Coincidentally, I am now in the process of writing a memo where I will eventually be obliged to quote a document that speaks about “intermediate deadlines.”

        • Bayard

          There is an argument that a single ant is part of an organism, not an organism in itself, in which case the fungus is not killing its host, only part of it.

    • J

      “Israel reminds me of Ophiocordyceps unilateralis, a fungus that makes zombie ants do all the work, then kills them.”

      You might as easily use the words Army, or Tory, or power.

      Not to shift the focus of your metaphor, but there’s a more general point to make. We can very easily sit around and admire our thinking abilities without much consider from whence the thinking emerges, at the most basic level, as part of being a life form within an ecology. Although the current ruling ideology prefers to set limits to our interdependency, consciousness may be even more disconcertingly complex and dependent on other individuals and species than is generally understood.

      “…The findings suggest that certain gut microbes can, through the action of TLR2, modulate levels of serotonin and therefore directly influence human physiology and brain chemistry.”

      • lysias

        In biology/ecology, parasitism is a non-mutual relationship between species, where one species, the parasite, benefits at the expense of the other, the host. If the host benefits, it isn’t a parasite.

        • J

          Yes. I wasn’t talking about parasitism (nor likening the whole of Israel to a parasite) rather that consciousness itself is deeply relational.

    Have you a take on this article, Craig?
    http://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2017/02/03/this-how-russia-and-united-states-cooperating-syria.html
    It suggests based on circumstantial evidence that the US military is now passing on to Russia the precise GPS locations of ISIS targets that they were previously protecting, for Russian air strikes.

    For years Russia was trying to get the US to give the locations of al-Qaeda and ISIS targets but the US was consistently refusing, because those al-Qaeda and ISIS targets were US assets. Of course, there will plausibly be those in the US military on the ground who either passively or perhaps actively resist supporting terrorists. There are also several reports that US soldiers involved in training for Syrian “rebels” deliberately sabotaged their training or reduced its effectiveness because they objected to training terrorists.

    What puzzles me though is this: the US has such detailed satellite coverage that they are, it is said, able to see everything in the tiniest detail in real-time – doesn’t Russia have a similar capability from its own satellites? Why are they so dependent on data from the US? Especially, when ISIS were crossing the desert from Mosul to Syria in large convoys, why were the Russians not able to see those targets for themselves without relying on US information? The movements were even predicted weeks in advance.

    • Tom Welsh

      Maybe, for their next act, the Americans could pass on to the Russians their satellite pictures of the destruction of MH17.

        @ Tom Welsh February 7, 2017 at 13:53

    • john young

      Something that always puzzled me bhante,how these “terrorists” could cross over deserts/scrub with no cover at all and nobody attack them?.

    • lysias

      The reason the U.S. won’t release photos of the quality of its military satellite photos, but always fuzzes them up, is that the degree of resolution is a military secret.

      • Paul Barbara

        @ lysias February 7, 2017 at 15:31
        And those dastardly Russkis don’t have a clue about the resolution levels?
        I suspect it is just that the Yanks have more satellites and are thus able to cover more simultaneous targets – Russia has to cover a lot of territory with less; matter of priority. And, of course, ‘diplomacy’. PLEASE, don’t try to find that in the Encyclopedia Americana – you’ll find a drone pictured, I suspect…

    • Stu

      This is most likely the Americans learning from the Mujaheddin experience in Afghanistan and liquidating their jihadi proxies when they have outlived their use.

    “The only possible explanation, confirmed absolutely by Masot’s behaviour, is that the FCO has knowingly connived at settling a large nest of Israeli spies in London. I fairly put this to the FCO and they refused to comment”.

    Presumably they wondered why you would ask them about something so glaringly obvious. Glaringly obvious, that is, to the cognoscenti – of which vanishingly few, such as yourself, are in any way critical or skeptical. Completely unknown and unsuspected by the great unwashed, and intended to stay that way.

    “This was not just a curiosity, it reveals a deep-seated problem for our democracy”.

    I am afraid the problrem here is that you, Craig, believe that we have a democracy. We certainly have a very convincing simulacrum of a democracy, that’s undisputed. But who really decides what the British government does? Not “the people”.

    • Jay Holmes

      Keep at it. Thankfully, we are still blessed with the few, like yourself, who are fighting against the extinction of investigative journalism.

    • lysias

      But the myth is that the people do. Exposing the fact that they don’t, that it’s a myth, eats away at the legitimacy of the whole system, and promotes prospects that things might change.

        That, of course, is precisely why the nausiating presence of paid government troll(s)* like Habbabkuk, Anon1 etc is nevertheless so important for free speech – not because they need to be allowed their “right” to babble their insidious and mostly pretty stupid nonsense (they don’t), but because they serve as an invaluable reminder to the many who unfortunately still doubt it that GCHQ, NSA and their ilk throw billions of taxpayers’ hard-earned income at armies of useless idiots like Habbabkuk and Anon1 all over the internet for the sole purpose of manipulating public opinion with the government line. In the case of this forum most of the contributors are intelligent enough and critical enough that the babble of the trolls stands out like a sore thumb, which is why they are so useful. In many other fora they are able to blend in much more successfully.

        * (We should not assume, of course, that the various troll pen-names are puppettiered by different agents – one government agent certainly controls numerous identities simultaneously – including puppets supposedly representing the “other side”, who are often used to exaggerate implausible arguments)

  • bevin

    Some may wonder that so much attention is given, and so many resources are invested, by Israel, in the London Embassy.
    They might reason that the UK is no longer a great power, hasn’t had an independent foreign policy since the mid-fifties, is economically backward with a steadily declining importance in the world and moreover has a large number of local Zionists-descendants of those who laid the foundations for Israeli statehood- who are more than capable of ensuring that Westminster never loses its affection for their cause.

    There are two answers: in general terms, Israel is a totally artificial thing, an ethnic nationalist state which has constantly to recruit its own population, lest it simply evaporate into emigrations. Its economy is heavily subsidised, in hundreds of ways, by foreign governments; most of its industry depends upon subsidies, on a scale unprecedented in history, poured into it, for the most part as military assistance, by the US Congress. Without the constant inflow of foreign support Israel would not last a month: it defies every law of political nature, it lives, like a song and dance man, despite the laws of gravity.

    The second reason is specific to Britain- the great fear, shared by Israel and the ruling class of every western country, is that a socialist government, with a programme built around national self sufficiency and independence in foreign relations with a commitment to justice and the eradication of imperialism, is really a possibility. The world knows that the country in which modern capitalism began and in which the masses were first reduced to proletarian dependence, by being stripped of their resources and herded into the labour market, has over the centuries shown signs of understanding its past and realising that its future depends upon dealing with the deep wounds that disfigure it, and make it such a frightened, undignified, desperate mendicant longing for the chastening embrace of a cruel master.

    Israel fears, as the US did in the fifties and sixties and during the brief Bennite resurgence, that a socialist Britain could not avoid showing its disgust at the routine daily politics of the state of Israel, its ethnic cleansing, its land theft, its apartheid system, its contempt for equity and justice, its dangerous stocks of nuclear weapons, its role as an international centre of festering fascism.

    It understands that such an example in the world would not only attract massive international support at the grass roots level in every country but that its own people and those who support Zionism from abroad would be torn away from the hopeless racism, the resignation to anti-semitism, that Israel offers them. They would recognise that socialism and economic justice were high ideals preached by the founders of their first colonies, that Israel was set up, at least in the popular mind, not in order to persecute and massacre the people of Palestine but to join with them to create an example of peace and harmonious living.

    It may be hard to visualise the Britain- independent, workmanlike, wise and decent in its instincts, disgusted by imperialism and contemptuous of the shabby tricks of exploitation- which figures in the nightmares of fascist Zionists but they know that it is well within the bounds of possibility, and perhaps no more than a few mis-steps by their accident prone and clownish Tory allies, away. And they know this for the best of reasons- an independent, workers state is precisely the vision that sustained the heroes of the Warsaw ghetto and the victims of fascism in the darkest hours. Their descendants know how powerful an inspiration it can be, and it is in the very nature of fascism to fear that vision because it is what Woody Guthrie was thinking when he scrawled “This machine kills fascists” on the side of his guitar.
    Time was when, millions in Britain and around the world believed that the Labour Party would kill imperialism, because that is what it was set up to do, at least in the minds of its first victims, the labourers of Britain and their families.

    There is something about Jeremy Corbyn, in his perceived weaknesses-his calmness, his courtesy, his openness and his unaffected ordinariness- that sends shivers up the spines of imperialists in a way that no Bevan or Foot, no charismatic orator, no popular hero, ever could. It is the sense that he represents others, that in himself he is of little importance except that he is Everyman, just an ordinary son of middle class professionals who would be at home in a Mike Leigh movie. It is the realisation that there is nothing special about him except his interest in making life easier for ordinary folk and that there are hundreds of thousands like him flocking back into politics and thinking for themselves, that constitutes the nightmare that makes the Blairites so angry and the Israeli Embassy so intent on making sure that the old bogey of socialism in the Labour party is kept at bay.

    • craig Post author

      The FCO is refusing to answer further questions, though there is no reason they should not be public – the Diplomatic List is.

      • squirrel

        Of course. I wonder if asking for the names is thus a good line of enquiry for a FOIA request. I don’t see how it can reasonably be refused. It’s like, ok they are technical and administrative staff, we don’t have a problem with that, just tell us their names because it’s clearly unsatisfactory for these guys to be the anonymous ones. If we are told their names perhaps after a judge orders it and a spot of googling tells us that they specialise in psyops and coups and have no skills with the feather duster, well maybe we can kick off from there.

  • Republicofscotland

    It looks like Netanyhau is doing the rounds trying to “drum up” support in a bid to push for sanctions, or more likely military action against Iran.

    Theresa May has invited Netanyhau to return to Britain later on in the year, to mark the 100th anniversary of Arthur Balfour’s 1917 Declaration, of support for the establishment of a homeland for the Jewish people.

    As for Shia Masot, and his overblown retinue, could it be apart from trying to set up or influence the youth wing of Labour, in a bid to produce in the near future pro-Israeli British politicians, from within the movement who may go on to hold important positions.

    That Masot is trying to gather damaging information on British politicians who don’t support the Israeli cause. From there on in, a number of avenues could used to convince those politicians, that supporting Israel would be to their benefit.

    Masot and the obvious exposure of his intentions should see him kicked out of the UK, along with the rest of the Israel spies. However didn’t Masot claim on camera that the Conservatives were on board and that it was the Labour party that “needed” convincing, of the merits of Israel.

    Therefore as you say, with the Tory being in government, one could feel that they are somewhat complicit, on the whole fiasco.

  • John

    I emailed my MP, asking her to ask the FCO a few questions, similar to Craig’s.

    After a few days, I received a copperplate response thanking me for my interest in Syria (!). On clarifying, she promised to ask them the questions – no response as yet.

    • Paul Barbara

      @ John February 7, 2017 at 15:07
      At least you have a responsive MP; my ‘Labour’ MP refused to put to the Parliament extremely important information re Syria, and admitted ‘he’ (it?) hadn’t even checked the links I sent. (Give you a clue: a ‘joke’ someone once told me, about two Irish ******’*: Patrick Fitzjohn, and John (?) Fitzpatrick).

  • Old Mark

    Keep picking away- a FOIA request coverinq Q1 as detailed in your 2 Feb email to the FCO would be difficult to ignore/refuse on the ‘national security’ ground- but Q2 as it stands would probably fall foul of that test- so send in 2 separate requests, or forget about eliciting a response to the points you’ve queried in Q2.

  • Je

    One measure of the media silence on the Israeli lobby is how the general public still don’t have a clue that the UK invaded Iraq principally for Israel. I only understood why so many Tory MPs voted for the invasion when I learned over 80% were in Conservative Friends of Israel.

    The Guardian did publish this in 2003:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2003/jul/17/iraq.usa

    Telling us how the fraudulent WMD intelligence was fed into the loop by Israel’s Prime Minister’s office. In pertinent discussions the Guardian later censored posts by me containing links to that, their own, article. That is why the public is so ignorant of the power of the Israeli lobby in the UK. Any suggestion the Israeli lobby… well lobbies… and has influence… is taboo. Particularly with regard to the invasion of their long standing enemy in the middle east in 2003.

      • Je

        They use any exagerration to ridicule the idea that they have any influence at all. They exploit it and hide behind it.

        They don’t control foreign countries – but the Israeli lobby has an influence that is completely out of proportion. And against the interests of the countries where they have that influence. And its needs to be called as that. Exaggerating just helps them. The other staple is to claim anyone against the Israeli lobby is talking code for the Jews.

      I once attended a cocktail reception at the UK embassy in Washington where the guest of honor was a Labour MP who was one of their leaders on educational issues. It was while Gordon Brown was MP. As the reception was breaking up, I overheard the ambassador talking to the guest of honor. They were about to go, that evening, to the annual AIPAC meeting in D.C., which happened to be taking place.

      • Habbabkuk

        I wonder if the mischievious leprechaun could tell readers why he appears to take exception to that and why a UK Ambassador and a UK Minister meeting AIPAC when they are in Washington is any business of his?

  • Ba'al Zevul

    I guess the pathetic eagerness of May to establish trade deals with an apartheid regime, Netanyahu’s visit (and planned revisit later in the year), and the FCO’s silence on the details of our great ally’s* operations here, are probably not unconnected.You have to try FoI, I suppose, but they’ll call the Data Protection Act in aid if they can’t find anything more plausible**. You need a whistleblower!

    Now, an apologist might suggest that the FCO finds it more convenient to have the Israelis inside the tent pissing out, even if from time to time one of them shits himself, and, if so, that trail probably leads straight back to the money. Mutual ‘defence’ and digital contracts, access to intelligence (however bowdlerised by its sources) and, dare we consider it, international finance could all be relevant here.

    May certainly wants the UK to be global. Corporate profits allow of no qualms. We can wave the fast-receding apparition of an ethical foreign policy a final goodbye, I think.

      There are tunnels allowing secret entrance into and exit from the White House in D.C. This undoubtedly explains some of the mysterious movements in and around the White House of the male prostitute/”journalist” Guckert/Gannon as reflected in Secret Service logs.

            Sorry, I misread – you wanted to know who Mr. Gannon was visiting. We do not have a full list, but he did attend as a White House press correspondent, despite appearing to be totally unqualified for the job (having had no experience in journalism, and so forth).

            Guckert/Gannon boasted that he was “entertaining” Tony Blair in the guest house across the street from the White House (coincidentally named Blair House) when Blair happened to be visiting D.C. for a joint session of Congress, the evening before it was revealed that David Kelly had died. The previous afternoon, Secret Service logs showed Guckert/Gannon having entered the White House, but there was no record of his leaving.

            Gannon/Guckert timeline. Those interested are invited to do a word search for “Blair” on the linked article.

            There were also indications that Dubya Bush was inordinately friendly with Guckert/Gannon.

          • lysias

            It was on July 17, 2003 that Dr. David Kelly went out for his ill-fated walk, and on July 18 that his body was found.

            Another piece on Gannon/Guckert, Remembering Jeff Gannon/Guckert with this highly significant sentence:

            Jeff Gannon/Guckert became the most famous male hooker since Joe Buck when he made more than 200 appearances at the White House posing as a journalist with the conservative websites GOPUSA and Talon News, attending 155 White House press briefings. He possessed no previous journalism experience, and had previously been refused a congressional press pass.

            If that weren’t enough to raise eyebrows, Guckert made more than twenty-four visits to the White House when there were no scheduled briefings. On at least fourteen occasions, Secret Service records show that Guckert checked in but was never processed out.

            Here’s the link for that significant final sentence: Secret Service records raise new questions about discredited conservative reporter.

            So you are suggesting that Mr Gannon engaged in homosexual acts with Messrs Blair and Bush?

            Guckert/Gannon is an admitted male prostitute. The word “entertaining” was used by the board minutes of Guckert/Gannon’s college fraternity in explaining his absence from a board meeting. They were probably using Guckert/Gannon’s own word.

            I leave it to others to interpret what the word means in this context, but I think the implication is rather obvious.

            _____________________

            What is the “rather obvious” implication as far as you’re concerned?

            Is it that you believe Mr Gannon engaged in homosexual acts with PM Blair and President Bush?

            I know you’re a busy man so a simple “yes” or “no” would do.

    Not forgetting our old friend, late of Tel Aviv, Mr Matthew Gould

    ‘In his previous role as British ambassador to Israel, Matthew set up the UK Israel tech hub, which laid the foundations for the UK and Israel’s powerful tech relationship. He also led the Cabinet Office’s cyber security unit as its Director of Cyber Security and Information Assurance, focused on keeping Britain safe from cyber attack, including running the National Cyber Security Programme and helping to develop the Cyber Essentials Scheme.

    In his new role, Matthew will work closely with Liam Maxwell, the Government’s National Technology Adviser, and Antonia Romeo, the Government’s Special Envoy to the US technology companies, and Her Majesty’s Consul General in New York.

      Well that WILL be useful to the Israelis then. We can be sure the Cabinet Office is comprehensibly back-door’ed for the foreseeable future!

  • xAnonx

    Haha well as usual the MSM refused to cover this and the UK government apparently also made everything to stop any coverage.
    Talk about propaganda and corruption!

  • Anon1

    Ok, so where’s the substance?

    The headline says you have “exposed” something. I can’t find it in the article.

    • Trowbridge H. Ford

      The Mossad got free run of the UK after the attacks on that charity in Argentina, and the ones on Balfour House and the Israeli Embassy in the UK, provided that it didn;t use fiire arms.

      After that its kidon cut the shrouds on Stephen Hilder’s parachutes to make troublemaker Jurgen Mollemann’s murder look commonplance, and killed Dr. David Kelly for fear that his evidence about Iraq’s WMD would show its invasion was totally uncalled for.

  • philw

    The most remarkable thing about the Masot affair is that the man he wanted to ‘take out’ is a minister in the FCO, in fact Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, and the man he called ‘an idiot’ is the Foreign Secretary. Yet still the FCO takes no substantive action, despite the fact that technically they could revoke the visas of all the ‘technical and administrative staff’ tomorrow. This would suggest that there are very powerful reasons why the FCO is unable to take action. A foreign power has that strong a grip over the UK.

    Remember the death in the lift in Dubai?

    Foreign Secretary David Miliband leaves Millbank studios on March 23, 2010 in London, England.

    A Mossad representative at the Israel embassy in London is to be expelled after Israeli security services are alleged to have cloned British passports which aided the killing of a senior Hamas commander last month in Dubai.

    Israeli Diplomat Expelled Over Dubai Assassination Passport Cloning

    There’s a photo of the red brick Israeli Embassy in the set. I stood in Kensington High Street opposite Palace Green many times protesting at the Israeli wars on Gaza……. Cast Lead. Summer Rains. Protective Edge. And the Mavi Marmara horror.

        Did you not notice –

        ‘Mossad representative at the Israel embassy in London is to be expelled after Israeli security services are alleged to have cloned British passports which aided the killing …’

        ??

        • Trowbridge H. Ford

          I find it most hypocritical and irresponsible, undoubtedly part of the continuing cover up of the murders of Hilder and Kelly, to allow their killers to escape without a trace while being so correct about another Israeli killer from overseas who visits its shores.

    Excellent research again. I only just got to read it or would have commented sooner but it stirkes me as being in the same mould as the Gould, Fox, Werrity posts you have run previously. This is the kind of story investigative journalists used to get involved in and dig relentlessly but today there are few of that breed left in mainstream media. In those days they would call it a scoop!

    Today investigative journalism is left to dedicated and unpaid researchers like yourself. Alone you have broken more big stories than the current complete Guardian staff. It was not always like that. And the BBC. . .

    When I was in Georgia in 2000 I cycled to the Azerbaijan border in sleet-driven conditions but the border guards would not let me in without a visa. They wanted to know how much potatoes cost in England and when I told them they laughed and looked at one another. It was probably a week’s wages but I don’t know. I caught a bus back to Tblisi and located the embassy. It was only open at a certain time and appeared to be run by the Consul himself. He spoke Russian but he was not able to change a fifty dollar note so I went looking for a bank.

    I expect of course he had a dozen technical and administrative staff bribing the Georgian parliamentary mafia. 😀

    Keep chopping away at the fungal mycelia! I liked that metaphor from J about Ophiocordyceps unilateralis. Great work.

    If the FCO is so tight lipped about a publicly available list. Then there is no hope of finding out anything about the various other shop fronts of the zionists set up in UK for the benefit of penetrating deeper into the UK systems; included the fake information technology/ communications companies, that are ran by imported staff who work on Tel Aviv time.

  • Tony_0pmoc

    Craig is on Top Form again. So is Thierry Meyssan, though so far as I am aware, he is the only journalist to come to such conclusions, which are actually fairly positive, and give a degree of hope in combating the current extremely dangerous, largely neocon, world wide, evil control virus.

      Thanks for that heads-up on Thierry Meyssan, Opmoc.

      According to his entry in Wikipedia,” Meyssan is currently living in Damascus, Syria.” Could you confirm that by any chance?

        @ Habbabkuk February 7, 2017 at 22:35
        It’s a wonder anyone is still ‘living’ in Damascus, after the onslaught by ‘Western’ poxie (sorry, ‘proxy’) mercenary head-choppers were set loose. Strange lot, them ‘Jihadis’; odd they don’t touch the ‘head of the beast’ they supposedly detest….(oops, I forgot – they’re in cahoots…).
