    The Irgun may have begun its first attack on British installations in 1944, but it pointedly did not attack the British MILITARY during the war. And as B.G. pointed out and in contrast to your statements, the elected Jewish Agency and the Hagannah initiated a "hunting season" against Irgun and Stern in order to prove to Britain they were staunchly pro-war. And let's not forget that most of the Allies in WW2 did not enter that war when it did not suit them. Recall the USSR's Molotov-Ribbentrop pact with Nazi Germany and USA's isolationism before Pearl Harbor. Your allegation that the Zionist leadership were only interested in saving the Zionist elites, and letting the rest die, is complete fiddlesticks. A maximum population of Jews was always considered of utmost importance. Why do you think Jabotinsky tried to get the entire Jeiwish population of Poland to move to Israel? And why do you think Israel airlifted entire communities of Middle Eastern Jews, who were mostly traditional.
