Israel expert calls for assassination of Islamic Jihad leader

MEMO | November 1, 2018

Israel should resume its policy of targeted assassinations, aiming first at Secretary General of Islamic Jihad, Ziyad Al-Nakhaleh, Israeli journalist Yoni Ben Menachem said in an article this week

Al-Nakahleh, who is based in Beirut, was elected as a secretary-general of the movement last September. Ben Menachem sees Al-Nakhaleh’s ties with Iran and Hezbollah as a threat to Israel. His assassination, Al-Nakhaleh said, is a step towards “stopping Iranian influence in the region and stopping the Iranian plan to turn the Gaza Strip into an effective front against Israel”.

Mossad can reach Al-Nakhaleh in Beirut, the journalist added, in a similar way to how it targeted Imad Mughniyeh, a Hezbollah leader, in Syria ten years ago.

Linking Al-Nakhaleh to the Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Qasem Soleimani, Ben Menachem said this allows Iran to spread its influence in the besieged Gaza Strip.

The failure of Mossad to return to the policy of targeted assassination will allow Gaza’s political leaders to believe they have “immunity”.

    • Apart from the fact that the journalist’s name is “Yoni”(an Indian word meaning a woman’s vagina), I would have thought that admitting that Israel carries out “Targeted assassinations”, clearly is an admission that Israel is a Terrorist State.

      (Even the USA President admits authorising assassinations by ‘drone strike’)

      “Who are the “TERRORISTS”? Israel, and the USA accuse Iran of being a ‘Rogue State’, while carrying out targeted killings themselves. Israel and the USA need ‘Regime Change’, and a return of Democracy, which would benefit the American people, more than anything.
