    Organize..Yes. Crime..No Every government,especially democratic governments needs organize 'crime'. Israel most of all. In fact the proper name for such organizations is 'underground organizations'.But it is essential to use the word 'crime, to disassociate the government from its activities .Churchill have that in WW2. Israel is at any time colud be at NW7 (National War 7). Is it 7 ? Now more than ever its very existence is at risk. This Chamberlain; Sahm'on Pearse; may be he had a past, but it doesn't seems he has a future.The Musa'd (Ha'sham bless them) is a government organization,its function is limited. (like Cesare's Wife)must be above suspicions. The day will come(we pray it will never come) Israel will need to restart from where it all started. Whether we like it or not, this is one of the stark realities of our time. It is not 'crime' It is readyness for self-defence. And no where in the world; self-defence is so complicated as in Israel.
