If you haven't heard by now, take a look at this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/...
Long story short, the British government believes that Mossad has faked a number of British passports that they used to enter Dubai and assassinate a HAMAS commander.
On top of that, French, German and Irish passports were faked and used as well.
Folks, Europe is not going to take this sitting down.
One of the biggest surprises to me when living in the UK was just how vastly DIFFERENT the opinion was on Israel. When Israel invaded Gaza, it was rightfully reported as a "humanitarian crisis," MPs were out every day telling Israel to withdraw, and even coming on live TV to denounce the invasion and raise money for Palestinian relief causes.
Afterwards, when Israeli Foreign Ambassadors made their PR rounds, they were matched on TV with Palestinian representatives who repeatedly were given more than enough time to make their case and call out non-answers and propaganda that were presented. I was impressed to see actually balanced reporting. But, I digress.
What's happening now is big. The British government is treading very lightly, but the people are angry. Foreign relations are extremely strained.
I've only been in the US for a few months, but keep up with my family who are quite into politics. They say Gordon Brown is going to push the US on this one. With the update on additional passports this morning, I imagine the French, Germans and Irish are going to be getting in on this as well.
I have a feeling I know which side Obama will come out on, but I expect this to start hitting the fan very soon.
