I like history

I like history. Not only are stories from the past fun to read about, they can also provide insight into current events. Consider, for example, the story of the Lavon Affair.
The Lavon Affair refers to a failed Israeli covert operation, code named Operation Susannah, conducted in Egypt in the Summer of 1954. As part of the false flag operation,[1] a group of Egyptian Jews were recruited by Israeli military intelligence to plant bombs inside Egyptian, American and British-owned civilian targets, cinemas, libraries and American educational centers. The bombs were timed to detonate several hours after closing time. The attacks were to be blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian Communists, "unspecified malcontents" or "local nationalists" with the aim of creating a climate of sufficient violence and instability to induce the British government to retain its occupying troops in Egypt's Suez Canal zone.[2] The operation caused no casualties, except for operative Philip Natanson, when a bomb he was taking to place in a movie theater ignited prematurely in his pocket; for two members of the cell who committed suicide after being captured; and for two operatives who were tried, convicted and executed by Egypt.

The operation ultimately became known as the Lavon Affair after the Israeli defense minister Pinhas Lavon was forced to resign as a consequence of the incident. Before Lavon's resignation, the incident had been euphemistically referred to in Israel as the "Unfortunate Affair" or "The Bad Business" (Hebrew: העסק הביש‎, HaEsek HaBish). After Israel publicly denied any involvement in the incident for 51 years, the surviving agents were officially honored in 2005 by being awarded certificates of appreciation by Israeli President Moshe Katzav.
Isn't history fun?

Anyone expecting change well I have a bridge of the river denial to sell you. That's a great catch;) Thanks
 
Two interesting items via MoA about The Double Identity of an "Anti-Semitic" Commenter and Turkey's history with ISIS. Also entertaining is Soviet espionage history.
 
Standard procedure, from Josephus' day to Queen Victoria's.

Pick-up an AK-47, join a group of militants, enjoy instant respect, fear, and regularly reap bounty. Group is gunned down with billions of advanced military weaponry, making weapons stock holders happy.

Bored, a new group springs up when the next wave of desperate middle easternyouth pick-up an AK-47, join a group of like minded friends, enjoy instant respect, fear, and regularly reap bounty.

Stir, wash, rinse, repeat.

There is no..."only one ISIS". There is world wide credit card debt that results in each debtor paying DOUBLE for any purchase they make on a credit card if they cannot immediately pay down the credit care purchase. That world wide credit card debt derails humans from truly helping each other.

That 19 dollars a person sends to a non-profit of their choice every month actually costs them 38 dollars a month if they have ongoing credit card debt.

In the middle east It's just easier to pick up an AK-47 than try and create local economies when existing credit card debt doubles the cost of every credit card purchase made by a credit card debtor.
