A word, used alone or in phrases that the world has heard literally millions of times in recent years. I would wager that in 99.9% of those mainstream media mentions, words such as “Islamic” or an Islamic sounding name are mentioned a few seconds before or after the hook words of terrorism or terrorist.
It is quite a strong connection. 9/11 made sure of that.
But do we ever hear of other, much older ethnic and religious connections to the phenomenon of terrorism? They certainly exist in today’s Palestine.
In the 1930s – 1950s, there were many Jewish terrorist organizations active in the Middle East, Britain, and Europe. Few people will have heard of them today. One such group was called “Irgun Zvai Leumi” (or simply Irgun) translating to, “The National Military Organization in the land of Israel.”
In the 1930s there was no entity called Israel, so that gives you a clue as to their agenda.
“WANTED” posters, such as those below, abounded across Palestine to find the perpetrators of hundreds of terrorist attacks carried out on innocent Palestinian people,
One of the most shocking Jewish terrorist attacks was the 1948 assassination of Count Folke Bernadotte.
Count Folke Bernadotte assassination in 1948. Note in the far-right column of the New York Times front page, in small print, “US Consul… ‘Terrorists presumably responsible’. “
The Swedish diplomat’s UN vehicle was ambushed at a check point and he, and two of his diplomatic staff also in the car, were shot dead in a hail of machine gun fire.
Count Bernadotte was operating in Palestine under the flag of the United Nations as a respected peace-maker. He was the nephew of the reigning Swedish King.
Count Bernadotte had found great success as a negotiator in World War 2, securing the release of over 31,000 Jews from Nazi concentration camps. His stature as a Royal, from “neutral” nation Sweden and his valiant efforts in saving so many Jewish people from the Nazi gas chambers, meant that he was trusted by both the Arabs and the few Jewish people of Palestine to secure a fair deal for everyone. And he was making progress.
But the very qualities and background which made him so trusted and respected made him very dangerous to Zionist extremists. What if he came up with a reasonable deal that the Palestinians accepted? The Jewish Zionists it seemed, never had any intention of making any “deal”.
When Bernadotte promoted a UN deal to share the land of Palestine 50:50 between the Palestinians and the Jews, that was impossible for the right-wing Jewish terrorist groups to accept. They had other ideas. These groups have always wanted nothing less than 100% of Palestine and so murdered Bernadotte – a great friend of the Jewish people – in broad daylight to prove their intent. They got their way.
(note: many Palestinians weren’t too happy about giving away half of their lands either, but the deal never had a chance of success due to the assassination.)
By the way, the Zionist movement to take Palestine from its Arab majority inhabitants began in the late 19th century, so the creation of Israel had nothing to do with sympathy for the Holocaust, an event which occurred half a century later.
Another of the tragic terrorist attacks in Palestine by Jewish groups occurred in the same year, 1948: The massacre at the Palestinian village of Deir Yassin
Between 120-250 Palestinian villagers were massacred by Jewish terrorists in the 3 days between April 9 and 11, at a village just out of Jerusalem.
The villagers resisted the attacks for the 3 days but were eventually all killed by the well-armed Jewish terrorists. No one came to help the Palestinian villagers.
Ongoing Jewish terrorist massacres on innocent Palestinian villagers had the desired effect. Hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled their homes in terror, lest they be the next victims of the well-armed and ruthless Zionist gangs and Zionists and settlers moved in. The occupation began.
These far-right Jewish terrorist groups operated not just across Palestine but they targeted the British and Europeans as well, lest anyone there show too much support for the Palestinians.
And in Europe the attacks continued,
Jewish Terror groups such as Irgun and the Stern gang are now known as “Zionists” and they have ruled Israel from 1948 to this day. They have hi-jacked Judaism itself and splintered it for their own extremist political purposes. Zionism has been utterly rejected by Strictly Orthodox Jews, many secular Jews, as well as the Palestinians, and increasing numbers of westerners.
But Zionists have extremely powerful friends and allies in the global media, in the world of weapons and technology, and in western politics. They can, and do, get away with murder. Genocide actually.
The names and faces on the old black and white “WANTED” Terrorist posters above might be familiar to you.
Both of these wanted Zionist terrorists – Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir – went on to become Prime Ministers of Israel, warmly welcomed into the halls of western power, and given undented support.
Menachem Begin, wanted terrorist in the 1940s, who became Israeli Prime Minister
And a wanted Terrorist.
Isn’t it a bit strange that “terrorist” is NEVER a term we see or hear now in conjunction with Zionists or Jewish people? Almost exclusively, “terrorists” as we come across them today is a word restricted to Muslims, or occasionally white people carrying out mass shootings in America. (The authorities there go to great lengths to avoid this designation as well).
But it really is irrefutable that the foundations of the state of Israel are the numerous acts of bloody Jewish terrorism that were carried out against Muslims and Europeans. That at least should be acknowledeged for there to be even a shred of justice and credibility in the affairs of the world.
I am not holding my breath.
