What's with people opening dumb threads with no context whatsoever?
anti-Semite, terrorist supporters? meh...no one cares
Is that all you have?
Consider the source. Actually popst #1 is missing for me as well, but was made FIVE YEARS ago. The board clown is just being himself again. He must not be getting enough attention.
I will do better to give him more attention. We need him here for laughs.
C'mon guys... off topic, I get it, tough subject for people who scream terrorist at Muslims for a living.
Back on topic:
Irgun was described as a terrorist organization by the United Nations, British, and United States governments, and in media such as The New York Times newspaper, and by the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry. In 1946, The World Zionist Congress strongly condemned terrorist activities in Palestine and "the shedding of innocent blood as a means of political warfare". Irgun was specifically condemned.
Menachem Begin was called a terrorist and a fascist by Albert Einstein and 27 other prominent Jewish intellectuals in a letter to the New York Times which was published on December 4, 1948. Specifically condemned was the participation of the Irgun in the Deir Yassin massacre:
"terrorist bands attacked this peaceful village, which was not a military objective in the fighting, killed most of its inhabitants – 240 men, women and children – and kept a few of them alive to parade as captives through the streets of Jerusalem."
The letter warns American Jews against supporting Begin's request for funding of his political party Herut, and ends with the warning:
"The discrepancies between the bold claims now being made by Begin and his party and their record of past performance in Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party. This is the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs, and British alike), and misrepresentation are means, and a "Leader State" is the goal."
Lehi was described as a terrorist organization by the British authorities and United Nations mediator Ralph Bunche.
