Panorama, Mossad and Kill Khalid

Watching Panorama last night on the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, I became more convinced than ever that Kill Khalid: The Failed Mossad Assassination of Khalid Mishal and the Rise of Hamas, the book by the internationally known war correspondent Paul McGeough, is a must read for anyone interested in the way the dreaded Mossad operates.

The book chronicles a Bond-like operation to kill Khalid Mishal in Amman in 1997 through a deadly poisonous gas. The plot failed only because two of the Mossad agents with forged Candian passports were caught and the Netanyahu government at the time, under international pressure, was forced to hand over an antidote, which saved Mishal’s life.

Kill Khalid, a meticulously researched book, is a masterpiece of its genre and available from the Quartet website.

Please hurry and get a copy while stocks last.
