Stevan Farkas Posted over 1 year ago Jason McCue: Terrorism is a failed brand Jewish terrorists? Sure. The term Zealot, in Hebrew kanai, means one who is zealous on behalf of God. Lots of nastiness against the Romans. Pre modern Israel the big names were Irgun, Stern and Lehi. Menachem Begin, awarded the Nobel Prize for peace, is the same man who planned the destruction of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin. Ex prime minister, Shamir, was originally a member of the Jewish terrorist gang called Irgun, which was headed by none other than Menachem Begin. Shamir later moved over to the even more radical Stern Gang. And I'm sure the IRA would be considered a terrorist group by most people. Everyone is somebody's terrorist.
