    "Israel was not run by Haganah and the Stern Gang,. . ." - Gee True. ". . . nor were they (Stern Gang,) in any shape or form terrorists. The Haganah was not a terrorist organization. The Stern Gang and Irgun were. You need to learn some history yourself. "Menachem Begin was a founding member of the Stern Gang, but in the end he won a Nobel Peace Prize." Try again, he never belonged to the Stern Gang." - Gee Correct he was a member of the Irgun. Yitzak, "Rabbi" Shamir was the Stern Gang member who became PM. ""Nor did we ever order the murder of civilians." What about Chaim Arlosoroff? What about numerous bombings of buses, bus stations, markets and other civilian targets by the Irgun? What about the Stern Gang's assassination of Lord Moyne? Forgetting a bit of history are you? "You should learn a bit of history before trying to lecture us." - Gee Your knowledge seems as one-sided as his.
