As Kevin Rudd makes alot of noise, demanding answers and all that bluster.
"We are going to get to the bottom of this," Prime Minister Kevin Rudd told ABC Radio.
And Gordon Brown does hand springs for his audience, to demonstrate his steadfast perseverance and intention to get an answer
Prime Minister Mr Brown said: "We are looking at this at this very moment."
All very urgent you may think but, not really according to Israel.
Today, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor has denied that diplomatic ties are under strain
``I haven't heard any government accuse Israel of being involved in that, not in France, not in Britain, not in Ireland, not in Germany and now not in Australia,'' he told ABC Radio today.
``There have been many hints, or direct accusations by media (but) ... they don't represent any official stance.
When asked directly if Israel denied involvement.
We don't think we should feel concerned.''
Palmor declined to respond saying saying there had been no accusations.
``(So) I refuse to stand accused.''
So, I ask, is it all bluster and show on the part of the Australian and UK government?
Victor Otrovsky- Mossad just manufactures passports
If they can obtain blank passports, which they have in the past from Canada, from England, they do. If not, they just manufacture them."
He says a company within Mossad headquarters is dedicated to forging passports.
"They create various types of papers, every kind of ink. It's a very, very expensive research department," he said.
He says the manufactured passports are almost identical to the originals.
"If they create a passport at a top level for use of that nature ... I don't think anybody will be able to find the difference," he said.
Perhaps Israel really isn't concerned diplomatically. If they are just manufacturing passports as needed?
Oh, and one more thing...
IN 2004, it was an open secret in Canberra's Middle Eastern community that Israeli agents were trying to obtain "clean" passports from countries such as Australia and New Zealand to be used by its spy agency, Mossad.
I just can't help but come away with the impression that when spokespersons for Israel say they do not stand accused and are unconcerned, they really don't and they really aren't
In 2004, Mr Kazak declared that a Mossad agent operating in Sydney at the time had obtained 25 false Australian passports.
