An Israeli journalist, B. Rosenthal, unearthed in German records a letter written
during the Third Reich from the Irgun, an outlawed army in Israel’s early days. In
this letter the writer entreated Hitler to join forces with the Irgun and Stern Gang,
also a notorious and outlawed Israeli terrorist group, and work together with Hitler
who would create a totalitarian state in Europe, while the Irgun/Stern Gang would
commit to simultaneously creating a totalitarian, Jewish state in Palestine. This
letter was published twice, once in January 1982 and again in February in 1983
in ̈Haaretz”, a newspaper which is published daily in Tel Aviv. There were many
reports of the terrorism practiced by the Irgun and Stern gang in the West Bank.
One report was that of an old man sitting down outside his humble home to have
lunch. As he began to eat his soup, a member of the Irgun strode by and shot him in
the heart. The elderly man dropped dead over his food, dying instantly. This terror
practiced by the Irgun and members of the Sterm Gang caused the panic that led
many Palestinians to flee their homes.
This book is an attempt to bring to light some deeply hidden aspects of Israel’s history.
