ETZEL

Terrorists: Jews guilty, as always

Exploiting the gullibility of their Western audience, Hamas blamed Israel for “lack of courage” and “failure in getting the deal.” The Jewish sin is great, indeed: Olmert refused to release eight arch-terrorists, 150 major terrorists, and a thousand trash prisoners for the leftist corporal Shalit.
Shimon Peres pushed for the release of his friend, Tanzim leader Marwan Barghouti, and Barak pushed to release them all. Bizarrely, Chief of Staff Ashkenazi took Barak’s side, apparently dancing blindly to the IDF’s official tune that no efforts were spared to bring our POWs back. The proper efforts would have meant bombing Hamas, rather than exchanging its members.
Israelis still close their eyes to the fact that Olmert is the least worse prime minister of the past twenty years, and for the next five years.

Olmert masterfully inflamed Israeli public opinion with rumors of the pending exchange. As the deal seemed almost done, the public digested it and reconsidered the potential joy of getting Shalit back—and started opposing the terrorists’ release. Many voters sighed with relief when the talks failed.

No one is perfect, and no prime minister is good: Olmert was ready to release scores of “minor” murderers, including Walid Ajnes and Fadi Juabeh, who are serving twenty-six life sentences each.
Tens of thousands Israeli soldiers risked their life to arrest the 1,500 terrorists which the government has no problem releasing.

Netanyahu will have a lot of trouble with the leftist crowd of pro-Shalit (anti-terror-victims) demonstrators. His leftist opponents will use them to weaken Bibi’s government. Cui bono? Who pours millions of dollars into pro-Shalit events? Those who want Israel to lose the terrorist war, the EU and ultra-leftists.

The greatest problem is, they all will be released sooner or later. We consider them murderers, but to the Arabs they are terrorists. Any political settlement with the Palestinians would require Israel to release those “soldiers” who fought for Annapolis or the Road Map goals. Israel respects her terrorists from ETZEL and LEHI, and the Arabs respect theirs. The only alternative to their eventual release is execution.

60 years since the murder of the Altalena

murder of AltalenaIn 1948, acting on Ben Gurion’s orders, Haganah detachment under the command of Yitzhak Rabin drowned the Altalena ship.
Menachem Begin’s ETZEL fighter group used the Altalena to transport huge quantities of weapons which Israel desperately needed in the War of Independence. According to ETZEL agreement with Haganah, the weapons were to be shared. After the brief quarrel with Haganah commanders, the ship left Yaffo dock and stood on the raid in Tel Aviv.
At that point, Rabin opened fire at the defenseless ship, and continued even after it threw white flag. Rabin refused to allow evacuation of wounded Jews from the ship, and directed fire onto the Jews who jumped from the sunken ship and swam to the shore unarmed. 16 Jews from ETZEL were thus murdered in cold blood on Rabin’s order.
A huge crowd on Jewish leftist onlookers assembled on the shore but did nothing to stop the slaughter. Ben Gurion said about the murder, “Blessed be the cannon that shot the Altalena.” Decades later, asked in America to recount his experiences in the War of Independence, Rabin the murderer of Altalena hysterically boasted of “shooting and shooting” the Jews who swam for survival.
ETZEL refused to retaliate against fellow Jews for the murder.

Sderot sues Hamas for Etzel’s crimes

Sderot municipality files a petition in the International Court in Hague accusing Hamas’ leader Meshaal of crimes against humanity, namely of killing Sderot residents. A common Israeli delusion is that Hamas launches rockets on Sderot; in fact, the Fatah-affiliated groups do. Jewish resistance groups similarly killed Arab civilians in the Mandate period for political objectives. Israeli government insists on treating Hamas as criminals rather than soldiers.
