De 'zaak Mabhouh' wordt steeds vager en ingewikkelder, en de link met de Mossad is uiterst zwak. Inmiddels zijn 27 verdachten aangehouden en voor een groot deel weer vrijgelaten. Twee van hen zijn naar Iran gevlucht. Ondertussen heeft niemand het over wat Mabhouh allemaal uitvrat en hoe zich dat tot het internationale recht verhoudt, en waarom Dubai en andere Arabische staten Hamas blijkbaar op hun grondgebied dulden.
Nu zouden zelfs Hamas bronnen hebben gezegd dat Arabische staten waarschijnlijk (ook) met de moord op Mabhouh te maken hebben.

'Arabs may have targeted Mabhouh'
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Hamas man: Jordanian, Egyptian agents tracked terror chief before murder.
Arab countries may be complicit in the January 19 assassination of Hamas terror chief Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, Hamas sources said on Tuesday, according to various reports.
Citing a report by Al-Quds Al-Arabi, Reuters quoted Hamas official Mahmoud Nasser as saying that Jordanian and Egyptian intelligence agencies had probably tracked Mabhouh prior to his assassination.
Nasser told the newspaper that there was evidence showing that Mabhouh had been targeted by moderate Arab countries because he had handled sensitive information concerning the activities of Hamas and other Islamist elements. He added that that assassination may have been carried out earlier than planned.
According to the newspaper, Nasser is in charge of Iran's ties with Hamas and had worked closely with Mabhouh prior to the latter's death.
Meanwhile on Tuesday, The National reported that Dubai police requested FBI assistance in investigating the assassination of Mabhouh.
The UAE-based English-language paper reported that the US investigators will be charged with probing the ties between the suspects which have been named in the murder and their prepaid credit cards, most of which were issued by the same Iowa bank, Meta. The FBI has also been asked to find links between the alleged assassins and the Israeli Mossad.
According to the report, the FBI neither confirmed nor denied whether any such request had been made.
The National also noted a business link between Payoneer, the Paypal-esque company which had issued the credit cards, and Greylock Partners, a venture capital firm. Moshe Mor, one of Greylock's founders, was reportedly an officer in the IDF's military intelligence branch.
