    A severe case of double standards (as usual - that is par for the course with Israel) - Haganah and Irgun members became legitimate party members in Israel. IRA members went through the same process with GB. In fact, what percentage of "freedom fighters, opposition groups or terrorists" comprise new governments in once-failed (or repressed) countries? It is a large percentage to be sure - look to Israel's history - should the rest of the world have said no to negotiating with the (Jewish) people responsible for killing the Brit Consul to Palestine? Irgun and Haganah were terrorist groups. So Lieberman, why don't you get off of your soapbox and explain to the world how Irgun and Haganah members are so different from their moslem brothers in Hamas and Fatah...
