A little forgotten Jewish history. Their violence always bubbles beneath the surface.
… The Irgun was not the only Jewish terrorist group but it was the most active in causing indiscriminate terror in pre-Israel Palestine. Up to the time of the Jaffa attack, its most spectacular feat had been the July 22, 1946, blowing up of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, with the killing of 91 people – 41 Arabs, 28 Britons and 17 Jews. The other major Jewish terrorist group operating in Palestine in the 1940s was theLohamei Herut Israel- “Fighters for the Freedom of Israel,”Lehiin the Hebrew acronym – also known as the Stern Gang after its fanatical founder Avraham Stern.
