Mossad passports

Via Gorilla in the Room, Israel has inadvertently admitted (or here) that the Mossad was operating in New Zealand last year attempting to obtain a nice clean New Zealand passport for one of its agents. The systematic misuse by the Mossad of the passports of New Zealand, Australia and Canada is one of the great scandals of diplomacy (see here and here and here and here and here and here and here), endangering the citizens of those countries by associating them with the illegal activities of the Mossad, but only New Zealand has had the balls to really complain about it. Countries like Canada obviously care more about relations with local Jewish lobbyists than they do about the welfare of their own citizens.
