Faruq Husni Mubarak: the Mossad role

Al-Masri Al-Yawm started as a decent semi-independent newspaper before it became an arm of the apparatus of Jamal Mubarak. The closer an Arab paper gets to the regime the dumber it gets. Here, Al-Masri Al-Yawm is "reporting" with front page coverage and a big headline that the Mossad dispatched a team to defeat Faruq Husni Mubarak at UNESCO. Don't get me wrong, I am sure that the Israeli foreign ministry dispatched a team, but why would that require a role for the Mossad, unless they were looking for the secret dye for Mubarak's hair.
