The CIA was behind 9/11 and the Shin Bet was behind Entebbe

The BBC has come out with a report that's so ridiculous it makes the 'truthers' claim that the CIA (or Israel or the Jews) were behind 9/11 look almost sane by comparison.

Al-Beeb reports today that the Shin Bet, Israel's General Security Service (the equivalent of the FBI and the Secret Service in the US) collaborated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of 'Palestine' (PFLP) to pull off the hijacking of a Tel Aviv - Athens - Paris flight to Uganda shortly after it took off from Athens on June 30, 1976. What's worse is that the document was based on a British government report. (Anyone wonder why there is dhimmitude in the UK today)? (Hat Tip for Al-Beeb logo: Nep Nederland)
A UK government file on the crisis, released from the National Archives, contains a claim that Israel itself was behind the hijacking.

An unnamed contact told a British diplomat in Paris that the Israeli Secret Service, the Shin Bet, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) collaborated to seize the plane.


Two Israeli civilian hostages died in the shooting, and a third died later in a Nairobi hospital. One officer [Yoni Netanyahu HY"D - brother of Likud Chairman Bibi Netanyahu. He was the commander of the entire operation. CiJ] commanding the raiders was killed by shooting from the airport tower.

Ugandan President Idi Amin claimed the troops killed 20 Ugandan servicemen as well as all the hijackers.


In the document, written on 30 June 1976 when the crisis was still unresolved, DH Colvin of the Paris Embassy writes of his source: "According to his information, the hijack was the work of the PFLP, with help from the Israeli Secret Service, the Shin Beit.

"The operation was designed to torpedo the PLO's standing in France and to prevent what they see as a growing rapprochement between the PLO and the Americans."

He adds: "My contact said the PFLP had attracted all sorts of wild elements, some of whom had been planted by the Israelis."

The documents also reveal that the British government debated whether or not to praise the Israeli raid after its completion.

It was decided in the days after the raid that it was not clear whether the Israeli offensive was justified under international law.

One document in the file reads: "The Israelis have been critical of the fact that the prime minister did not send a personal message of congratulations to Mr Rabin and that our public statement fell short of endorsement of the Israeli action at Entebbe."

The file also contains correspondence from UK citizens to the government expressing concern that the government had not expressed support for the Israelis.


But in a document dated 9 July an official cautions against such a statement because there is likely to be "no internationally agreed view about the legality of the Israeli action".

The document says the legality of it would depend on whether or not the Ugandans had helped the kidnappers.

In a draft document included in the file an official says it appears Idi Amin did collude with the hijackers.

It reads: "On balance it seems that there was a culpable degree of collusion between President Amin and the hijackers, and that the president's attitude made it much easier for the hijackers to persist in their demands."

The file does not make it clear how seriously the government took the claim that Israel also may have aided the hijackers.
The Jerusalem Post has a longer excerpt of the Colvin memo:
"According to his information, the hijack was the work of the PFLP, with help from the Israeli Secret Service, the Shin Bet," he wrote.

"The operation was designed to torpedo the PLO's (Palestine Liberation Organization) standing in France and to prevent what they see as a growing rapprochement between the PLO and the Americans. [Note - Dhimmi Carter had not even been elected yet. CiJ]

"Their nightmare is that...one will witness the imposition in the Middle East of a Pax Americana, which will be the advantage of the PLO (who will gain international respectability and perhaps the right to establish a state on evacuated territories) and to the disadvantage of the Refusal Front (who will be squeezed right out in any overall peace settlement and will lose their raison d'etre) and Israel who will be forced to evacuate occupied territory.

"Hence the unholy alliance of the hijacking."
Israel Radio reported on its 1:00 newscast that the office of Shimon Peres - who was defense minister in 1976 - referred to the report as being "lies and stupidities not worthy of comment."

Too bizarre for appropriate comment!

Is Rosie O'Donnell's state of delusion contagious? Seems to be for leftists.

This should remind us of the Soviet-sponsored disinformation that followed JFK's murder in 1963.
