The issue for me, I think - and for other Australians who were irked about this - isn’t just that the agents used faked passports, but that they used stolen passports. As in, passports with the names of details of two innocent Australians living in Israel, who have now been hounded by the press, and may now find it difficult to travel to any Arab country. In fact, it might be a little more difficult for all Australians to travel to Arab countries, because of this misuse of our passports.
Is it the end of the world? No. Is it something that we cannot ever forgive? No. Did the guy they killed deserve it? Yeah, probably, but that isn’t the issue here. The issue is that a country who is supposed to be our ally and friend did something like this, when we specifically asked them a few years ago not to. We feel used, and cheesed off, and rightfully so.
So if that makes me an anti-Semite, well, fine. DOWN WITH THOSE MONEY HOARDING JEWS etc. /
Note: I am going with what I think is the majority here, and assuming that it was Mossad.
