Al-Ahram: Mossad chief is 'Israel's superman'

... and his Egyptian counterpart is a piece of SHIT!

The Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram claimed on Saturday that the head of Israel's Mossad, Meir Dagan, is "Israel's superman" for successfully thwarting the Iranian nuclear program.

The article in Al-Ahram, written by the paper's analyst for Palestinian affairs Ashraf Abu al-Haul, claimed that Dagan is the "brains" behind last week's assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist.

"Surely the Iranians know who stands behind the assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist Massoud Ali Mohammadi in Tehran last Tuesday. Any Iranian official understands that the magic word is 'Dagan'," the article read.

Abu al-Haul claims that "without Dagan, the Iranian nuclear program would have been complete years ago. Nevertheless, the director of the Israeli Mossad, whose name is mostly unknown, works away from the limelight and the eyes of the media."

According to al-Haul, in the past seven years Dagan was able to successfully hinder the Iranian nuclear program. "Whoever follows Israeli domestic politics understands that the head of the Mossad, who was appointed to his post in September 2002, was able to accomplish feats no man can describe. From the Iranian issue and limiting the military force of the Syrian army to facing Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Islamic Jihad," the article read.

Al-Haul also writes in the article that Netanyahu explained his decision to extend Dagan's term with the claim that Israel was facing serious threats that required the Mossad head to continue in his post, without appointing a successor.
