The Ziomedia has deliberately covered up the war crimes record of deceased Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Shamir and has heaped praise upon him—while deliberately ignoring and covering up his murderous terrorism and Jewish Supremacism.
As head of the Stern Gang, Shamir authorized the assassinations of Lord Moyne, the British minister in Palestine, in 1944, and Folke Bernadotte, the U.N. envoy (and Swedish count) in 1948.
Bernadotte wanted to internationalize Jerusalem and limit the borders of the new Jewish state. His murder helped shift partition from 55 percent of Palestine to the Jewish state to 78 percent.
Above: The Palestine Police (then run by the British) issued this “wanted for murder and terrorism” poster for the Stern Gang. In the center, a young Yitzhak Shamir.
But, if you read CNN’s obituary, you will only find that “Born in Poland, Shamir moved to Palestine and fought for Israeli independence…. Shamir was a leader of the Jewish Zionist underground group that fought the mandate in the 1940s.”
The truth is that Shamir did not just “fight the mandate,” but actively waged a terrorist war against the United Nations.
The New York Times’ described Shamir as follows in its obituary:
“Yitzhak Shamir, who emerged from the militant wing of a Jewish militia and served as Israel’s prime minister longer than anyone but David Ben-Gurion, promoting a muscular Zionism and expansive settlement in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip, died Saturday at a nursing home in Tel Aviv. He was 96.”
Note how “The Stern Gang” is transformed into a “militia”. The Stern Gang was responsible for many of the worst terrorist acts during the foundation of Israel.
On 6 November 1944, the Stern Gang assassinated Lord Moyne, the British Minister Resident in the Middle East, in Cairo. Moyne was the highest ranking British official in the region.
The two assassins, Eliahu Bet-Zouri and Eliahu Hakim were captured and used their trial as a platform to make public their political propaganda. They were executed. In 1975 their bodies were returned to Israel and given a state funeral.
On 12 January 1947, Lehi members drove a truckload of explosives into a British police station in Haifa killing four and injuring 140, in what has been called ‘the world’s first true truck bomb’.
The Stern Gang then bombed the British embassy in Rome in October 1946.
Immediately thereafter, the Zionist terrorists launched a series of attacks in Britain, using the co-operation of Jews residing in that country.
On 15 April 1947 a bomb consisting of twenty-four sticks of explosives was planted in the Colonial Office, Whitehall. It failed to explode due to a fault in the timer.
Five weeks later, on 22 May, five Stern Gang members were arrested in Paris with bomb making material including explosives of the same type as found in London.
On 2 June, two Stern Gang members, Betty Knouth and Yaacov Levstien, were arrested crossing from Belgium to France. Envelopes addressed to British officials, with detonators, batteries and a time fuse were found in one of Knouth’s suitcases. Knouth was sentenced to a year in prison, Levstien to eight months.
The British Security Services identified Knouth as the person who planted the bomb in the Colonial Office. Shortly after their arrest, 21 letter bombs were intercepted addressed to senior British figures. The letters had been posted in Italy. The intended recipients included Bevin, Attlee, Churchill and Eden.
During the lead-up to the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, the Stern Gang mined the Cairo-Haifa train several times.
On 29 February 1948, Lehi mined the train north of Rehovot, killing 28 soldiers and wounding 35.
On 31 March, Lehi mined the train near Binyamina, killing 40 civilians and wounding 60.
On 9 April 1948, about 120 Stern Gang members attacked the Arab village of Deir Yassin and massacred the Arab residents. At least 254 people were murders, many women raped and children butchered.
On 17 September 1948, the Stern Gang assassinated UN mediator Count Folke Bernadotte.
Those Stern Gang members who had been arrested by the British mandate authorities were all granted amnesty by the Israeli state upon its foundation and released.
In 1980, Israel instituted the Lehi ribbon, red, black, grey, pale blue and white, which is awarded to former members of the Lehi underground who wished to carry it, “for military service towards the establishment of the State of Israel”.
In 1982, postage stamps were issued for 20 Stern Gangsters, including the assassins of Lord Moyne, in a souvenir sheet called “Martyrs of the struggle for Israel’s independence.”
In its obituary, The New York Times does not mention the assassinations of Bernadotte or Moyne.
Current Israeli president Shimon Peres has called Shamir a “brave warrior.”
