If the US had used fake UK passports to terminate Osama Bin Laden, London would never have reacted by expelling an US diplomat.
British Foreign Secretary David Miliband told parliament on Tuesday that an Israeli diplomat with Mossad credentials has been expelled from London over the alleged use of forged UK passports in the assassination of Hamas arms trafficker Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai in January.
The diplomat singled out is the Mossad representative at the embassy. He has been asked to leave Britain Monday night. Before the news of the expulsion was released, Israeli Ambassador to the UK Ron Prosser had been summoned by the British Foreign Office.
On Sky News today, right-wing Israeli MK Arieh Eldad first used the «dog» reference when insisting a British diplomat should also be banished in response, «maybe the military attache» He added, «Who gave the British the right to judge us on the war on terror?»
Michael Ben-Ari, a colleague in Eldad’s ultra-nationalist party, added that «unfortunately, the Israeli government and Israeli diplomacy play into [British] hands. We have learned that a dog must be called by its name. This is anti-Semitism disguised as anti-Zionism».
Other Israeli parliamentarians quickly called for reducing the hostile rhetoric. MK Tzahi Hanegbi of Kadima said that «Israel’s abstaining from giving any kind of response at the height of the Dubai crisis was right. Now that the height of the crisis is behind us, it is certainly all the more logical to refrain from making matters worse».
United Kingdom has started a diplomatic war on Israel, and opened up for a political recognition of Hamas.
