going to raise up embarrassing questions and complicate their relationship with Israel," he said." (thanks David)
That could be. I don't think it did. Even Arafat, the man who would kiss me when we met, told me he admired Moshe. Even the Jordanian chief of staff told me in 1948: "What a pleasure it is having your husband as an enemy." His behavior toward the Arabs was positive even after the Six-Day War. He would travel alone to Nablus; he liked being with them. He had a dialogue with them. Today, who talks with them? For the current government, peace is just a word.
Have you lost hope for peace?
I think Zionism has finished its work. I've endured many wars and I can't ignore the fact that they didn't want us. When I go to the territories, I don't even bother instilling hope in them. Out of courtesy, I tell them that I hope something will change, but the deterioration is just awful. Particularly the fence. This is something I can't tolerate." (thanks Maryam)

statement which EU foreign ministers issued on Monday complaining about the use of forged European passports in last month’s killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, the Hamas commander, in Dubai. The statement contained several sentences that were masterpieces of waffle, such as the following: “The EU … believes that its passports remain among the most secure in the world, fully meeting all international standards.” The statement was, however, remarkable chiefly for its reluctance to spell out that the EU holds Israel responsible for the flagrant misuse of identity documents belonging to European citizens."

Mossad spy team taking extra precautions for upcoming mission
To all local and international media:
Hi, I'm the deputy spokesperson for the top secret Mossad hit team (our chief spokesperson wasn't available because he's busy coming up with new aliases for our next mission in Syria the day after tomorrow). We just wanted to assure you that our next mission will be undertaken seamlessly without the messy footprints we left behind in Dubai. Our 11-person team will arrive in Damascus on the first flight from Jordan that morning to ensure we have enough time to prepare. We'll all be seated in business class so we can sleep on the plane. This time around, we will make sure to request that management disable all cameras at the Abdel Abed Hotel where our HA target will be staying that night. Furthermore, we'll all be wearing clown masks when we enter to conceal our identities and to not arouse suspicion (this was my idea). Oh, and some of us also got hair cuts and trimmed our beards since our last mission. Please rest assured that this mission is being planned in absolute secrecy using high-tech spy equipment with no chance whatsoever of fallacy. Don't believe me? Then become a fan of our Facebook page where we will be providing top secret, up-to-minute developments concerning our whereabouts and actions, and see for yourselves!
Mr. Super duper top secret Mossad spy man
(Ha- I bet you thought I was going to give you my name, didn't you! Can't fool us!)"
