    Chris is back again on his favorite subject. When has nothing germane to add he will always pull out that old bogeyman of the Stern, Irgun and Haganah from 70 years ago before the State of Israel was even founded. Is this perhaps that these three organisations waged a successful war against the full might of the British empire. Once again Chris only quotes half truths. The Jewish underground only targeted British troops, they never killed civilian men , women and children. These organisations were set up to protect the Jewish population of Palestine from the killings of the local arabs while the British troops sat on their backsides and gave them arms. Chris also forgets to mention that when the State of Israel was declared these three organizations were ordered disbanded. Once again Chris only spins out his anti Israel version of any story. Why give the truth and the facts when they do not agree with your agenda.
