It is entirely and predictably within character. Avi Dichter, former Shin Bet boss, who will become defense minister of Israel when the “centrist” Kadima party (a collection of Likudite outcasts) wins Israel’s election later this month, has promised to assassinate the democratically elected leader of the Palestinian Authority, Ismail Haniyeh, according to the Jewish Telegraph. Such a threat is more than enough reason for the Palestinians to declare war on Israel, although this of course would be suicide.

Considering the numerous crimes of Israel, Dichter’s threat is completely normal.

In a recent letter published in the Globe & Mail, Ismail Zayid, president of the Canada Palestine Association and a native of Beit Nuba, Palestine, ran through a few of the more egregious crimes of the tiny outlaw and increasingly pathological state. “Terrorism has been the hallmark of Israeli leaders, including Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Shamir, Ehud Barak, Benjamin Netanyahu and Ariel Sharon, amongst others,” writes Zayid. “Assassination of Palestinian leaders and intellectuals, in Europe and the Middle East has gone on for years…. Israeli assassination is not limited to Palestinians but includes the 1944 assassination of the British minister Lord Moyne in Cairo as planned by Yitzhak Shamir… [and] the assassination of the Swedish nobleman, Count Folke Bernadotte, a UN mediator, on Sept. 17, 1948, in Jerusalem, on the orders of Yitzhak Shamir, who later became prime minister of Israel.” Other crimes, largely forgotten or simply glossed over, include:

Israeli use of chemical weapons is also on record in the botched attempt to assassinate Khalid Meshal, a Hamas leader, in Amman in 1997, on the orders of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The first act of air piracy in the history of civil aviation was carried out by Israel in 1954, when a civilian Syrian airliner was forced down in Tel Aviv and its passengers and crew held hostage, despite international condemnation.

The first act of shooting down a civilian airliner was deliberately carried out by Israel when a Libyan airliner was shot down by Israeli jet fighters over Sinai in February 1973, on the orders of Israeli prime minister Golda Meir, killing 107 of its passengers and its entire French crew.

Israeli terror was not restricted to Palestinians, Arabs and Europeans but included its own closest supporter and ally, the United States. In 1954, Israeli secret agents bombed the U.S. diplomatic centers in Cairo and Alexandria (known as the Lavon Affair), in an attempt to put the blame on the Egyptians. Israel later honored the perpetrator, Marcello Ninio.

In June 1967, Israeli forces attacked the U.S. spy ship USS Liberty, and strafed rescue boats, killing 35 and injuring 170 U.S. servicemen, in an attempt to conceal its own secret communications, and again tried to blame it on the Egyptians. To this day, incredible as it may seem, the U.S. Congress refuses to hold an inquiry into this crime, as requested by the surviving crew. Needless to say, no sanctions were imposed or calls to extradite the perpetrators were made.

Zionist terror did not spare Jews. In 1940, Menachem Begin’s Irgun Zwei Leumi terrorist gang bombed the ship Patria in Haifa harbor, killing 240 Jewish refugees, so as to put the blame on the British for political gain.

In 1950-1951, Israeli agents were dispatched to Iraq where they tossed hand grenades into the crowded Massauda Shem-Tov synagogue, causing numerous deaths, in order to blame it on the Iraqis and encourage reluctant Iraqi Jews to emigrate to Israel.

No doubt Avi Dichter will eventually manage to kill Ismail Haniyeh. Of course, after this happens there will be a spate of suicide bombings in Israel proper. But then that’s why Mossad allowed Hamas to “reinforce its presence in the occupied territories” while “Arafat’s Fatah Movement for National Liberation as well as the Palestinian Left were subjected to the most brutal form of repression and intimidation,” according to Hassane Zerouky. “Hamas had built its strength through its various acts of sabotage of the peace process, in a way which was compatible with the interests of the Israeli government. In turn, the latter sought in a number of ways, to prevent the application of the Oslo accords. In other words, Hamas was fulfilling the functions for which it was originally created: to prevent the creation of a Palestinian State.”

Indeed, the assassination of Ismail Haniyeh, as the assassination of Ahmed Yassin before him, will result in violence and this will give Israel precisely the pretext it needs to kill and terrorize more Palestinians.
