Blogging via an iPad

This blog will be used as a political soapbox for gotidude - although will mostly refer to links related to various political issues, as well as mentioning a few religious things and a bit of humour every now and again - but only now and again. Finally and very rarely there will also be mentions of football related issues.
As mentioned in the story below - a Mossad agaent was arrested in Israel - planting a dummy car bomb...this shows that Israel actually trains to carry out extra judicial killings. Furthermore as Mossad is the spy agency for Israel and operates abroad - this shows their intent and that they are likely to plant the car bombs abroad. Surely if this happened in any non-Western country this would cause a media frenzy.
A trainee spy for Israel's secret service agency Mossad was arrested by Tel Aviv police while taking part in a training operation, media reports say.
The young trainee was spotted by a female passer-by as he planted a fake bomb under a vehicle in the city.
He was only able to persuade police he was a spy after being taken in by an officer for questioning on Monday.
The authorities have refused to comment on the story although Israeli media outlets have expressed their surprise.
'Just a drill'
Mossad does not tell local uniformed police about its training exercises.
The country's commercial Channel 10 said it hoped the agency's operatives were "more effective abroad", AFP news agency reported.
Niva Ben-Harush, the woman who reported the novice's suspicious behaviour to police, told Ynet News that 15 minutes after she made the call, Tel Aviv's port was closed and people evacuated.
She said police initially asked her to come with them and identify the suspect.
"But after a few minutes, they told me it was just a drill," she said.
Up to three agency employees were believed to have been suspended following the incident, Ynet reported.
It quoted the prime minister's office as saying it did "not respond to information about such activities undertaken by security agencies or attributed to them".
