Tel Aviv - A professional confidence trickster specialising in celebrity stings has been hired by the Israeli secret service ahead of all out war on Hamas.
Mazher Mahmood, former Murdoch investigative reporter (sic) and suspected serial perjurer is in the frame for the RUB**250,000 per annum position.
He will report directly to Vladimir Putin, head of Hamas, who also runs Mossad in his spare time.
Mahmood, 69, stood down from his NewsCorpse job last week following a spectacular London celeb drugs trial collapse when the judge called him an effin liar.
Dozens of his former covert stings - like the famous Headless Duchess felatio caper - (ouch, Kate!) have ruined loads of mindless twats worldwide.
Tonight he tweeted his anticipation of the PR role that will also see him spin for Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli PM.
Monday night's end of Ramadan fasting will see the start of a five day Eid El-Fitr ceasefire between warring Israeli and Palestinian factions his char woman commented.
