Do Mossad have an office in Zurich?

Looking at the .pdf file the Dubai Authorities have kindly prepared, it seems that even if they didn't start in Zurich, the alleged "agents" who assassinated the Hamas member ended up back in Zurich.

Quite an eye-opener.

Enjoy piecing this jigsaw together and working out if you saw one of them stocking up on chocolate at the Airport Migros

Hello, chaps! There's a beardy fellow looked at me funny in the station this morning. Could you see to him for me?

it's not usual for people to work from home nowadays. Maybe they've converted a room in their apartment into a secret HQ?

Re: Do Mossad have an office in Zurich?

Could be. My neighbor had a garage sale last week, false beards, British passports, silencers, and tons of sunglasses. The UAV circling the apartment block banner towing was a little too much publicity IMHO...

Re: Do Mossad have an office in Zurich?

I will e-mail the UAE authorities and ask why they don't just print the passenger list for LX242 and say that everyone on board - including the Cabin Crew - were Mossad agents.

Seriously now, I thought Mossad were highly efficient and secretive.
But look - they've filled half a frigging Airbus with their agents (allegedly).

Were they doing a Training Course and did everyone want to go to Dubai for the cheap Duty Free?
(It is btw, VERY cheap )

Remember, sleep well now folks and don't have nightmares

I remember vividly about an article in Berner Zeitung criticising Isreali soildiers performing military training in the Berner Oberland.

There are lots of Jewish/Israeli organisations and representations and companies in Zurich, so that to place a Mossad operation into one of the places is no real problem. Add to this that the Security Services for ELAL at Zurich Airport are NOT part of ELAL but of Israeli National Law Enforcement, then you have the picture.

Secret Service Agents are not in the habit "to look funny". Most of us, without knowing it, of course see heaps of such guys and girls all the time, but they simply look like everybody. Look at the persons on the diagramme. Just people as you can see everywhere.

There's a Mossad office here in Montreux for a start. It's on the lake road down the front, next to the Montreux Palace hotel and before the chippy. There logo looks a bit like Kelly Services (the temping agency) though and one of my colleagues here looked a bit silly when he wasn't really concentrating and walked straight into the Office Temps section of Kelly's and asked them if they had any positions to kill a few Arabs recently.

Mossad run training camps, just like every other terrorist organisation. And they went where the target was. They obviously wanted to send a public message.

Not sure what you see there, but I see that a larger team was split up and travelled through the four most common airport hubs in Europe in order to make it a bit harder to follow their trails. I would probably plan it the same way and then throw in some train trips (without passenger lists) and then a flight on another passport back home... flying directly to the city where you plan to hide sounds a bit unprofessional, so I would expect them pretty much anywhere except of Zurich. Like Olten...

It wasn't training. They were coming here to go bowling. It's a team building exercise. And if they're good, they might get to go to McDonalds on the way home

I'd buy some British passports! You never know when you need to assassinate someone.

Re: Do Mossad have an office in Zurich?

I think, I might be onto something. After reading the source A and source B, I came up with the most incredible conspiracy theory. I am also terrified by the fact that one can get shot on the slopes according to the source C so I bought me helmet. Just to spice up the theory I also read few threads on religon, minarets which constitute solid foundation of my knowledge about the life, kudos to the EF again .

12 years ago, Mossad agents were actually caught in (and near) a basement in Berne …

Quote:
The latest Mossad fiasco occurred two weeks ago in Bern, Switzerland. Five Mossad agents, carrying Israeli passports, were arrested in the basement of an apartment building while trying to bug the phone line of a Swiss national of Lebanese extraction who supposedly was an activist for the pro-Iranian Hezbollah terrorist group. The police mistakenly released four of them and the fifth agent is awaiting trial in a Swiss jail.

This article appeared in last Sunday's Times. I found it absolutely incredible. It is linked to the story of the hit squad sent to Dubai.

I was amused by the part about the hippopotamus.








BTW, the link doesn't work.
