Dahlia Suleiman Tal (August 11, 1968 – April 5, 2006), was an undercover agent of Shin Bet (Israeli Secret Police) who had infiltrated a Syrian terrorist group known as "Grasp of the Corpse" by pretending to be a corrupt member of Mossad. She helped Sam Fisher infiltrate the terrorist's underground research facility where ND133 was being held.
In cooperation with Third Echelon, Dahlia Tal lead Fisher through the streets of Jerusalem to the terrorist group's headquarters, while helping him evade Israeli police patrols. However, when the two of them reached the terrorist headquarters, Lambert radios Fisher and orders him to execute Dahlia immediately.
Alternatively, Fisher can choose to spare Dahlia. Lambert then reprimands Fisher, telling him "It's not your job to question!" Brunton then reveals that Shin Bet had double-crossed Third Echelon. They are planning on killing Fisher as soon as he retrieves the smallpox virus from the terrorists, because the Israeli government wants to steal the viral weapon for themselves; and because Fisher doesn't officially exist, there would be no repercussions for killing him. Sam replies, "Yeah, you said 'jump' and I didn't. When I get home, I'll sit facing the corner in a cone hat.") ." Sure enough, two Syrian mercenary snipers and Dahlia stalk Fisher as soon as he exits the terrorist base. Fisher is forced to kill them and heads to the exfiltration point. Lambert tells Sam that his soft spot for Dahlia "has cost us more in the region than you can imagine". If Fisher shoots Dahlia, he asks Lambert why he had to kill her at the end of the mission. Lambert only says "No, not yet", at which point the subject is not brought up again for the rest of the game.
- If the player shoots Dahlia as ordered, the game fails to give a proper explanation as to why this was a necessary move, only that Shin Bet wasn't playing straight. If the player spares her, a much more proper explanation is given in the final portion of the Jerusalem level.
- Dahlia was a contact of NSA consultant Dermot P. Brunton, and mentioned him to Fisher as a means of proving her supposed trustworthiness.
- If the player spares Dahlia, she will appear in the last stage of the mission in her attempt to kill Fisher. According to Lambert, "She has sniper stats that could disprove Kennedy conspiracies".
