Of course Irgun and Etzel were terrorist thugs. Certainly the vast majority of Palestinian Jews were appalled by their actions. Indeed, the WZO and Jewish Agency deplored their terrorism. And certainly the Israeli right applauds and defends their murder of innocent civilians as well as British soldiers and police - and yes, even Labor Zionists. What is amusing is the need to deny these uncomfortable facts when they are stated by some people in certain arguments while revelling in them at all other times. Why not admit that most Palestinian Jews were happy when Yair Stern went down, even if they deplored him being murdered while under arrest? Realit is complicated, and simple minds like to imagine a simple world.
