Israel Evacuates Consular Personnel

Channel 10/Nana News reports that on the third anniversary of the assassination of Hezbollah arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh approaches, Israel has recalled diplomatic personnel, temporarily closed embassies and consulates, and has ordered some staff to remain in their homes. Reports from the JPost were slightly more cautious, saying that:
Four Israeli embassies may be closed after serious threats were aimed at them.

The Foreign Ministry said Tuesday that security at the embassies, which it did not identify, had increased to the maximum level. Security at all Israeli embassies has also been increased, according to reports (JPost)
Mughniyeh, the Hezbollah’s chief of military operations and its liaison with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards was killed by a car bomb in Damascus on February 12, 2008. He was assassinated on his way to a celebration at the Iranian cultural center in Damascus, Syria. Hezbollah and Iran blame Israel for his death.

In related news, Israel's Counter Terrorism Bureau issued a travel advisory for all Israelis due to the anniversary of Mughniyeh's death -- the following places should be avoided: Egypt, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, the Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania and Venezuela.

Yes, I know, the Counter Terrorism Bureau is full of anti-democracy wimps, who don't believe that Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood is secular, peaceful and democratic.
