Likud: The Terrorist Party of Israel

April 29, 2019


The Likud Party of Benjamin Netanyahu is "the terrorist party" of Menachem Begin that Albert Einstein warned Americans about in 1948.  Maybe it's time to heed his warning.

“The red light had come on, under the lens. Without preamble,
I turned my shoulder to the camera, stared straight into Begin’s eyes, and asked:  "How does it feel, in the light of all that’s going on, to be the father of terrorism in the Middle East?”

“In the Middle East?” he bellowed, in his thick, cartoon accent. "In all the world!"
- Russell Warren Howe, January 1974

This spring's spate of bizarre incidents and attacks at religious institutions has been extremely unsettling. After the recent shooting at the Chabad of Poway synagogue, Rabbi David Castiglione of the nearby Temple Adat Shalom told the Los Angeles Times, “I am so completely fed up with the state of the world at this point. I am completely mystified.”

People are bound to be mystified by such senseless acts of violence, which often seem to be done for no reason. Who is behind the coordinated terror attacks on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka? Why would Sri Lankan Muslims endanger their own community by attacking Catholic churches and hotels? Who benefits from this atrocity?

Likewise, who benefits from the shootings in Christchurch and Poway? Are these simple hate crimes or are they acts of terror? Could they be both?


Now in the eighteenth year of the War on Terror, it is essential to understand that acts of terror are done for a purpose. As the Mossad agent says in The Little Drummer Girl, a book about Israeli false-flag terrorism by John Le Carré: "Terror is theatre. Theatre's a con trick. Do you know what that means? Con trick? You've been deceived."

The ultimate purpose of false-flag terrorism, like the 9/11 atrocity, is to affect public opinion and change the way the target audience thinks about the entity that is blamed. As terrorism expert Brian Michael Jenkins wrote, "Terrorism is aimed at the people watching, not at the actual victims. Terrorism is theater."

The purpose of the 9/11 terror attacks, for example, was to get public opinion behind the pre-planned War on Terror. This is the subject of my latest book, The War on Terror: The Plot to Rule the Middle East.

To recognize the source of the terror will enable us to understand the agenda behind it. As I explain in The War on Terror, the 9/11 plot and the War on Terror doctrine are both creations of Israeli military intelligence from the late 1970s. Both concepts were brought by Israeli agents onto the global stage shortly after the notorious Zionist terrorist Menachem Begin came to power in Israel in 1977.

Terrorism is an inherent part of Zionism.  Israel was created through terrorism and "the terrorist party" headed by well-known terrorists has always been part of the Israeli government. Menachem Begin's Herut party, which has been part of the Israeli government since 1948, was the successor to the terrorist organization he headed, the Irgun.

Under Begin's leadership, the Irgun bombed the King David Hotel in July 1946 and massacred the entire village of Deir Yassin on April 9, 1948. Although the Irgun was recognized as a terrorist organization by the United Nations, the governments of the United States and Britain, the New York Times, the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry, the 1946 Zionist Congress, and the Jewish Agency, the Irgun terrorists were never blocked from being part of the government of Israel. There have been two leaders of the Herut: Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Shamir. Both notorious terrorists, Begin and Shamir served as prime ministers of the state of Israel.

Yitzhak Shamir, a notorious terrorist and assassin, was a mentor to Benjamin Netanyahu who took the reins of "the terrorist party" in 1993.


In a letter to the New York Times signed by twenty-eight Jewish notables, dated December 4, 1948, Albert Einstein tried to warn Americans of Begin's Herut party, which he called "the terrorist party":

Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the “Freedom Party” (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine.

The letter warned of the terrorism that Begin's party could be expected to bring in the future:

It is in its actions that the terrorist party betrays its real character; from its past actions we can judge what it may be expected to do in the future.

Einstein pointed out that Americans needed to be aware of the "terrorist party" of Begin:

The discrepancies between the bold claims now being made by Begin and his party, and their record of past performance in Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party. This is the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs, and British alike), and misrepresentation are means, and a “Leader State” is the goal.

In the light of the foregoing considerations, it is imperative that the truth about Mr. Begin and his movement be made known in this country. It is all the more tragic that the top leadership of American Zionism has refused to campaign against Begin’s efforts, or even to expose to its own constituents the dangers to Israel from support to Begin.

Herut was a one-issue party intent on expanding Israel's borders, according to The Birth of Israel, 1945–1949: Ben-Gurion and His Critics, by Joseph Heller. When Begin came to power in 1977 he immediately began planning to occupy southern Lebanon and invaded that country in March 1978. From 1979 through 1983, the Israeli military operated a terrorist bombing network in Lebanon headed by IDF chief of staff Rafael Eitan, which used car and truck bombs to create chaos in Lebanon, according to Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations by Ronen Bergman (2018).

The "terrorist party" that Einstein warned Americans of in 1948 went on to become the ruling party of Israel. Herut (later renamed Likud) has been the dominant party of Israel since 1977. As the leader of the party in the Likud alliance, Menachem Begin became prime minister of Israel in June 1977. In 1988, Herut merged and became the Likud Party, a political party that has been headed by Benjamin Netanyahu since 1993.

Although Menachem Begin's party has changed names and leaders, the Likud remains "the terrorist party" and continues to use terrorism to achieve its goals. This can be seen by its support for terrorists in Syria during the past eight years and its role in training the Afghan Arabs in Pakistan starting in 1983. The Afghan Arabs trained by Israeli military intelligence (under Ehud Barak) in Pakistan included Osama bin Laden - and became Al Qaida in 1994. This is the same group that was blamed for the terror attacks of 9/11 by Ehud Barak on BBC television on the day of the atrocity.  Barak's interpretation of 9/11 called for the United States to begin the War on Terror, an Israeli strategy that was first introduced in 1979 at the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism - hosted by the Netanyahu Institute.

On 9/11, Ehud Barak was in the London studios of the BBC and Sky News ready to blame Osama bin Laden and call for a war against terror. As head of Israeli military intelligence in 1983, Barak had provided the weapons and training for bin Laden and the Afghan Arabs in Pakistan, who later became "Al Qaida."
