Bar Refaeli To Star in Mossad Pic
The Dubai assassination hits the big screen
It’s a well-known fact: history repeats itself, first as tragedy, and then as bad French-Israeli co-production of a B-movie starring Bar Refaeli. The supermodel and underwear enthusiast will join (Hebrew-only) a cast of Israel’s finest actors to bring the 2010 assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai to the big screen. And if you thought that the real thing was comical, what with all them Fletch-like disguises and poorly forged passports, just wait until you see The Spear: according to the Israeli press, the film will revolve around a band of Mossad agents who are shocked to realize that the assassination they’ve been planning had already been carried out by a team of four unknown professionals. It’s like The Fugitive meets Trading Places!

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
