Today, 22nd July 1946, Jewish terrorists from the militant Zionist organisation Irgun,planted a bomb in the basement of the main building of the King David hotel in Jerusalem. 91 people of various nationalities predominately British service personnel were killed in the explosion and 46 were injured when the western half of the southern wing of the hotel collapsed.
July of 1947, witnessed what became known as "The Sergeants affair", when Sergeant Clifford Martin and Sergeant Mervyn Paice of the British Army Intelligence Corps, were kidnapped by Irgun, and subsequently hanged.

It is worth remembering that the present state of Israel, was born out of terrorism and that Irgun, Haganah and terrorists from other Zionist militant organisations, formed the first and subsequent governments of the state. Today, those same people or their descendents occupy positions in government, businesses and the foreign service, and events such as these are celebrated in Israel and the territories occupied since 1947, as landmarks on the road to the establishment of what Netanyahu and others, now call the "Jewish State" .
