Alleged Mossad spy arrested

June 13, 2010


— An alleged Mossad spy from Israel wanted in connection with the hit-squad slaying of a Hamas agent in Dubai has been arrested in Poland, officials said Saturday.

The man, using the name Uri Brodsky, is suspected of working for Mossad in Germany and helping to issue a fake German passport to a member of the Mossad operation that allegedly killed Hamas agent Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai in January, a spokesman for the German federal prosecutor’s office told The Associated Press.

Brodsky was arrested in early June upon his arrival in Poland because of a European arrest warrant issued by Germany which is now seeking his extradition, the spokesman said, declining to be named in line with department policy.

The spokesman had no estimate of how long it could take for Brodsky to be extradited from Poland to Germany, saying “the matter is now in the hands of the Polish authorities.” If Brodsky agrees, the extradition could take a few days, but that isn’t likely, the spokesman said.

Extradited to Germany? Swell. Sure he'll get a fair trial there.

Only thing I can think of - he isn't much of a spy if he got caught that easily. He had to know they were looking for him. No Bond - James Bond here.

Godwin fail????? Perhaps if you kept up on current events you wouldn't come off as such a moron, Keith. Brush up on the recent anti-semitic actions in Germany, and then get back to me. Then again, if that was the best ya got, please don't waste my time.
