Terror: From Israel with Love – From “IZL” to ISIL (ISIS)
INTEL SECTOR – When we first came across historic acts of terrorism carried out by IZL we thought that it likely concerned a spelling error and that the writer meant ISIL (a.k.a. ISIS), looking further into the matter it quickly appeared to be not a mistake at all.
According to Wikipedia, of all sources one can use (but Wikipedia is considered “politically correct”), IZL, or the “Irgun”, was a zionist terrorist organization active in Palestine (now occupied Palestine or Israel). The IZL would eventually morph into today’s Likud party. Netanyahu and Rivlin their political party in Israel.
The Irgun was a Zionist paramilitary organization that operated in Mandate Palestine between 1931 and 1948. It was an offshoot of the older and larger Jewish paramilitary organization Haganah
When the group broke from the Haganah it became known as the Haganah Bet (Hebrew: literally “Defense ‘B’ ” or “Second Defense”, הגנה ב), or alternatively as haHaganah haLeumit (ההגנה הלאומית) or Hama’amad (המעמד). Irgun members were absorbed into the Israel Defense Forces at the start of the 1948 Arab–Israeli war. The Irgun is also referred to as Etzel (אצ”ל), an acronym of the Hebrew initials, or by the abbreviation IZL.
The Irgun policy was based on what was then called Revisionist Zionism founded by Ze’ev Jabotinsky. According to Howard Sachar, “The policy of the new organization was based squarely on Jabotinsky’s teachings: every Jew had the right to enter Palestine; only active retaliation would deter the Arabs; only Jewish armed force would ensure the Jewish state”.
Two of the operations for which the Irgun is best known are the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on 22 July 1946 and the Deir Yassin massacre, carried out together with Lehi on 9 April 1948.
The Irgun has been viewed as a terrorist organization or organization which carried out terrorist acts. Specifically the organization “committed acts of terrorism and assassination against the British, whom it regarded as illegal occupiers, and it was also violently anti-Arab” according to the Encyclopædia Britannica. In particular the Irgun was described as a terrorist organization by the United Nations, British, and United States governments; in media such as The New York Times newspaper; as well as by the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry, the 1946 Zionist Congress and the Jewish Agency. Irgun’s tactics appealed to many Jews who believed that any action taken in the cause of the creation of a Jewish state was justified, including terrorism.
The Irgun was a political predecessor to Israel’s right-wing Herut (or “Freedom”) party, which led to today’s Likud party. Likud has led or been part of most Israeli governments since 1977.
Carrying on an advanced form of warfare, ISIL, or ISIS, as a proxy outfit seems to fulfill a decades old IZL agenda of ruling through terror – funded by the US, its NATO block and the Arab sponsors. Knowingly, or unwittingly, eventually advancing Israel’s cause for democratic world domination.
