Israel Apologizes Over Embassy Staff’s Plot to “Take Down” Senior British Politicians

LONDON, Jan. 9 (Xinhua) — The Israeli embassy in Britain apologized for the mistakes made by one of its staff who had been caught on camera threatening to “take down” British senior politicians, local media reported Sunday.
Shai Masot, the political officer at the Israeli embassy, was secretly filmed in an episode last year during a six-month undercover operation by the Doha-based broadcaster Al Jazeera, which revealed plots by the Israeli officer and a British civil servant to destroy the careers of senior politicians.
In the footage obtained by the British newspaper The Mail on Sunday, Masot targeted British Deputy Foreign Minister Alan Duncan, and suggested Maria Strizzolo, an aide to Education Minister Robert Halfon, to “take down” Duncan.
