Revenge of the Nerds: Bibi Demands Dagan Return Diplomatic Passport, Exposing Former Mossad Chief to Arrest
Maariv and Channel 2 News in Israel are reporting that Bibi and Barak are wreaking their revenge on Meir Dagan in ways large and small, for breaking with them and almost single-handedly preventing an Israeli attack on Iran. It is customary for retiring senior government figures with diplomatic passports to retain them for the length of the term of the passport. However, Bibi is demanding that Dagan return his immediately (Hebrew and in English). This may seem like a deliberate act of pettiness. It is that of course. But much more.
Without diplomatic passport, Meir Dagan is subject to arrest in any foreign country he might visit which might recognize an arrest warrant for his acts as Mossad chief including the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabouh. Dubai’s police chief has already threatened to issue Interpol arrest warrants for Bibi’s arrest. So this is not academic. In essence, Bibi is punishing Dagan by confining him to Israeli territory, because he will surely be arrested if he visits or even touches down in many western countries.
What Bibi isn’t weighing properly is that Dagan could conceivably become a senior minister in a future government or, “God forbid,” prime minister (he can run for Knesset in less than three years). Then Dagan would be able to repay the favor and Bibi too would be confined to Israel for fear of his own arrest for war crimes.

This has been a good little exercise. It has served its purpose in the international PR war by softening Israel’s image slightly vis a vis Iran. As Israel knows when dealing with others it is not just what G-d thinks of you, or how you feel about yourself that matters, it is vital to understand how others see you. If you get the frame of reference wrong your message doesn’t impact. This little wrap on the knuckles from headmaster Netanyahu will not cause too many ructions. It is also important for the important messages that emanate from Israel to have some consistency. But it is also prudent to use various players in a team to win a game. I think everyone has got the message. i.e. Israel is willing to make peaceful overtures even to its most implacable of foes, but if you mess with us, you will wish you had never got up in the morning.
dagan+BiBi performing for naive audience
this site is anti Israel – always negatives
when you f Americans will return your land to
its real owners the Indians – then and only then you
will have the morale ground to lecture anybody
Beyond yelling you Americans were the only ones
to use A bombs
You Americans murder tens of thousands of civilians
on a regular basis – as long as you keep on murdering
muslim civilians shut your mouth
you have no rights – you are killers and land thieves
maybe Israel should learn from you bld Americans to put the exploding palis in reservations
Hasbaristas with exotic ethnic names. How cute. And very likely a fake as are the sentiments. The IP address (22.214.171.124) appears to emanate from in or around St. Louis which would mean that someone inside the U.S. was denouncing U.S. policy & history. I have no problem w. that as long as you’re honest & transparent, which this person isn’t.
Shall we put up Israel’s ‘numbers’ per capital population & compare it to U.S. population numbers per capita in its civilian killings in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, etc. I’d venture to say Israel is far more lethal when you do the comparison that way. It’s true we’re a much larger country with a much larger international footprint. But Israel packs an enormously lethal wallop for its small size population wise.
You’re moderated just in case you decide to return. Everything about you stinks of fakery.
The Hasabara Trolls areout early today.
“Israel is willing to make peaceful overtures even to its most implacable of foes”
Ah, the overture, but never the full opera.
Must be a virtual overture, one without words or music.
Not just a hasbara troll, but a messianic hasbara troll to boot. But he does a pretty good job of masking the hasbara most of the time. Nearest I can tell is that he’s pimping his website & wants to get his URL in play here. But who would click on it & visit it?
I suspect any government that arrested Dagan would be willing to settle for his testimony against the superiors who gave him orders. I would be willing to bet serious money that Bibi approved (at least; maybe he ordered) the Dubai murder.
RE: “Bibi Demands Dagan Return Diplomatic Passport” – R.S.
MY SNARK: Very classy, Bibi. You’re looking four feet tall.
No, that was the Turkish ambassador who Danny Ayalon seated on a kiddie chair that made him look like a midget!
It’s all Kabuki theater. Dagan, Bibi, Lieberman, Barak…all interchangeable parts in Israeli theatrics.
Now I have seen everything. You sit there in your comfortable house blogging things that are not fit to even be published, have probably never done a honest days work ( this site does not count as work in the least – it has to actually have value and benefit the world to count) and you call two MEN who have fought in all of Israel’s justifiable wars and defending the Jewish people with blood sweat and tears and you call them nerds. Richie boy – I think your suspenders are cutting off the supply of oxygen to your brain. I would also advise loosing the pocket protector as it may be effecting your ability to breath properly causing you to spew total garbage which somehow you think is tikun olam. You my friend are a NERD of the worst kind. I say you go to Israel and see how all the other NERDS live. You wouldn’t make it out of the airport before someone offended your liberal sensitivities you pansy ass poser. Please feel free to email me back at camfin@gmail…….
Hmm, profiles in Walla, Israel’s most popular online news site; Yediot Achronot, Israel’s 2nd most popular daily newspaper; and Channel 10 News. I guess they disagree. Whose opinion shall we prefer? Hmmm. That’s a tough one.
You left out the fact that I was defending another Israeli who served his country valiantly as well (though I’ve disagreed vehemently with some of his actions in the past). Conveniently omitted Dagan fr. yr holier than thou smear, didn’t you?
Snark & inane personal insults are a real No-No here. And you’ve lost yr privileges.
