The Shin Bet has revealed a plot to assassinate Ehud Olmert. The suspect, Mazab Bashir, a 25-year-old Palestinian from the Gaza Strip, works for Doctors Without Borders.
The organization may have done nothing wrong. But officials at the group may want to iron out their talking points.
According to The Jerusalem Post, Duncan Mclean, head of Doctors Without Borders operations in the region, told Israel Radio: “I don’t think embarrassed would be the right word. We are very sad for Bashir who has been working for us for almost six years. But we would like to make it very clear that we make a distinction between his professional work and what he does on his personal time in the sense that all our staff is hired for professional reasons and I don’t think our organization can be held liable for every aspect of their life.”
Poor fella’. Besides, what a guy does on his own time is his own business.
