As the King David Hotel was the British HQ in Jerusalem with all the Mandate Police files in the basement, it was a legitimate military target. A coffee shop or pizzeria filled with civilians is not. Can you see the difference? In addition, the Irgun tried to warn the Brits to evacuate the building, since there was a bomb. On the first try, the British duty officer answered with the statement, "I don't take orders from a bloody Jew!" and hung up. (Documented) Two more warning attempts were made, both were ignored. Why shouldn't the British duty officer have to apologize for those deaths as well? Before you ask, no, I was never a Begin supporter, I have never voted Likud and I think the country would be better off without them, but I AM interested in the truth. The truth is that the British were warned and chose to ignore the warning. At least part of the responsibility is theirs.
