Joshua E. Keating at Foreign Policy is keeping a list of all of the Mossad's nefarious plots. Here's just one:
The plot: Mossad agents, in cooperation with India's Research and Analysis Wing arranged Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's attempted Christmas Day plane bombing in 2009.
The evidence: According to a report on Iran's state-owned Press TV, an Israeli security company arranged for Abdulmutallab to board a plane in Amsterdam without a passport. An "Indian man" was evidently instrumental in arranging Abdulmutallab's passage, which is no surprise since "Israel and India are very close business partners, especially via their military contracts." Once onboard the plane, according to the account, another passenger spent the entire flight filming Abdulmutallab, even after he tried to ignite his crotch rocket.
The report, citing the Mathaba news agency, also posits that Abdulmutallab's home country of Nigeria is "clandestinely controlled by the Israeli army and Mossad" and quotes noted "military analyst and counterinsurgency specialist Gordon Duff, " (who also believes that WikiLeaks is an Israeli plot) opining that Yemen, where the would-be bomber reportedly trained, has no al Qaeda presence aside from "phony operatives" released by former U.S. President George W. Bush from Guantánamo.
