Israeli terrorists use British passports

Israeli terrorists using British passports

*** Senior British diplomats have expressed concerns about their discovery that the British government secretly gives passports to Mossad agents who are known to be involved in illegal bombings, murders and assassinations. In free countries like New Zealand, where the Israeli secret service have not yet fully infiltrated, Mossad agents obtain passports by stealing them from civilians. Israeli spies are currently in prison in New Zealand for stealing the identities of Muslims for unauthorised and unknown purposes. ***

The use of forged British passports by Mossad assassination squads triggered a Foreign Office protest.

But just as diplomats were about to call in the Israeli ambassador, it was discovered that civil servants elsewhere in Whitehall were in the process of renewing the UK passport held by a senior Israeli secret service agent.

"David Kimche is... controller of Israeli intelligence service operations in western Europe," a secret Foreign Office memo said in 1974. "He is a member of the diplomatic staff in the Paris embassy. He was born in the UK and for many years had a British passport. This has expired."

The murders of a Moroccan in Norway and Arab activists in Lebanon had infuriated diplomats when it was discovered that both had been carried out by Mossad agents, several of whom were using falsified British documents.

The realisation that Kimche was about to get a new passport astonished officials. "This is really extraordinary," one wrote. "At the same time as the minister is about to protest to the Israeli ambassador over the misuse of British passports for Israeli intelligence operations, we are apparently contemplating issuing a British passport to a man who may well have been in charge of the operation complained of."

Kimche was discouraged from applying.
