Remember Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh, the HAMAS terrorist and arms dealer who was killed in a Dubai hotel, probably by the Mossad? He was the go-between for HAMAS to obtain weapons and explosives from Iran for use against Israel. And now an Israeli director is making a movie about him. Sadly (and ironically), the movie stars Israeli draft-dodger Bar Refaeli. But what’s hilarious is that the terrorist’s family is threatening a lawsuit over the movie, apparently because it portrays the guy as something of a flirt . . . not because it shows that he’s a terrorist and murderer of Jews because, hey, that’s a great thing in their culture.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The family of a slain Hamas operative is seeking to block the release of a movie being made in Israel about his 2010 assassination in a Dubai hotel.
The killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was widely blamed on Israel’s Mossad spy agency.
Emmanuel Nakash, the French-Israeli director of “Kidon,” or Spear, has said his movie is not meant to be factual. In a plot twist, a gang of criminals murder al-Mabhouh to frame the Mossad. One scene shows al-Mabhouh, a senior figure in an Islamic fundamentalist group, flirting in a hotel bar.
Ahmed al-Mabhouh, a cousin of the Hamas operative, said Sunday that the family feels the movie is a distortion and plans to go to court to prevent its release. He says details such as which court should be the venue of the lawsuit are still being worked out.
The movie sounds crappy. But, if they sue in Israel, they will have some very friendly, pro-HAMAS, left-wing Israeli judges to hear the case. In Israel, Arab Muslims often sue and win in cases against Israeli Jews. But a Jew suing them in their courts? Fuhgedaboutit.
