Police in Dubai have been left a long list of evidence following the violent murder of a Hamas commander in a hotel room 10 days ago. That trail of evidence points to professional assassins using fake European passports operating on the orders of secret security minions in Tel Aviv.

Mahmoud Al Mabhouh was no stranger to attempts by Israeli agents to kill him. Six months ago, he was poisoned in Beirut, an attempt that left him unconscious for 30 hours.

There is no doubt that the Hamas commander was tailed to Dubai by those waiting for an opportunity to assassinate him he arrived in Dubai on January 19, less that 24 hours later he was poisoned, strangled and electrocuted.

His assassins made sure they finished their bloody job, likely torturing him before ending his life.

That operatives of the Jewish state had the bloody-minded audacity to carry out their dirty work on UAE soil is repugnant and a grave slight to the sovereignty of the nation.

Dubai Police are actively hunting down the assassins with the help of Interpol. When cornered, these killers must face justice here, feeling the fullest and severest consequences of the law for their actions.

On a grander scale, this act of state-sponsored terrorism fully underlines the odious nature of those who sanctioned such a foul and bloody deed. This is not the act of peacemakers but that is all too obvious. In every action and every deed, the government of Israel has stymied any attempt at every stage to find a just and peaceful resolution to its unlawful occupation of Palestinian lands and the subjugation of its people.

How can one have a peace process when colonies are built in blatant disregard for international law?

Sadly, there will likely be many more victims like Al Mabhouh.
