<span class=t13>British government ministers - Prime Minister Gordon Brown,
Foreign Secretary David Miliband and Home Secretary Alan Johnson - landed a
heavy blow on <st1:country-region w:st="on">Israel</st1:country-region>
yesterday by expelling a diplomat from the Israeli embassy in <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place
 w:st="on">London</st1:place></st1:City> (who according to news reports was the
head of the Mossad mission there). The minister condemned <st1:country-region
w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Israel</st1:place></st1:country-region> and
warned Britons of what may happen to their passports when they receive visas or
encounter immigration officers. The move was coordinated with other countries -
<st1:country-region w:st="on">Germany</st1:country-region>, <st1:country-region
w:st="on">France</st1:country-region>, <st1:country-region w:st="on">Ireland</st1:country-region>
and possibly <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Australia</st1:place></st1:country-region>
- and may signal the start of an avalanche. </span><br>
<br>
<span class=t13>This is a blow to Israeli arrogance on all levels. First, the
promise made by Shimon Peres to Geoffrey Howe in 1987 that British passports
would no longer be used for Israeli intelligence operations was apparently no
longer in effect. William Hague, the foreign secretary in the conservatives'
shadow government who may replace Miliband in two months if David Cameron wins
the elections, is the one who reminded parliament about Peres' promise to Howe.
</span><br>
<br>
<span class=t13>Second, it shows the negligence of whoever planned the
assassination of Hamas' Mahmoud al-Mabhouh by ignoring the fact that the <st1:City
w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Dubai</st1:place></st1:City> authorities are
sensitive about any damage to their hospitality. Also, the investigative authorities
there are capable. </span><o:p></o:p></p>
