Israel Not Mentioned in EU Passport-Abuse Condemnation

Israel was not mentioned Monday, when European Union foreign ministers strongly condemned the use of forged European passports in the assassination of senior Hamas terrorist Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai last month.

The resolution read, "The EU strongly condemns the fact that those involved in this action (assassination) used fraudulent EU member states' passports and credit cards acquired through the theft of EU citizens' identities."
