THE PRESS CONFERENCE….
The Press Conference
A Play in One Act
By A Friend
The Scene: The Ministry of Defense, Tel Aviv
The Characters: A Reporter; an Israeli Spokesman
Reporter: Did you have anything to do with the murder of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh?
Israeli spokesman: We all have something to do with everything in the world. Read your Spinoza.
Reporter: So you donâ€™t deny that the Mossad killed Mabhouh.
Israeli spokesman: You just did not deny, I did not deny or not deny anything.
Reporter: I donâ€™t understand.
Israeli spokesman: Maybe the only thing to understand if you are a terrorist is that wherever you are in the world, even in room 230 of the Bustan al Rotana Hotel, you canâ€™t escape the consequences of your actions.
Reporter: Did you just tell us the room number of the hotel suite where Mabhouh was murdered?
Israeli spokesman: I was speaking as a hypothetical. If I can add another hypothetical: Certain intelligence agencies are informed regularly of these kinds of actions and it would behoove them to stop talking or other people can talk.
Reporter: Are you threatening the chief of police in Dubai?
Israeli spokesman: Are you?
