Five months ago, the British National Archives released newly
declassified documents, according to which, British Intelligence “predicted war
– and Arab defeat – in Palestine in 1948.” According to today’s Israeli media,
Syrian files that reached French Intelligence prove that British Intelligence
agents actively encouraged the Arab countries to invade the “to be established”
new Jewish State, Israel.
So much for the impressive “forecasting” of British Intelligence.
What must now be asked is whether the almost frenzied attempts of the
SIS - or was it Military Intelligence – took place by instruction of the
British government or behind its back? If the British agents acted
because they did not agree with their own government’s policy in the region and
worked to counteract it – they are in fact traitors.
