Say the world's leading terrorists.

p.232 - "Rise and Kill First The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations" - by Ronen Bergman, translated by Ronnie Hope 

... in the wildness that was Lebanon in the late 1970s, seemingly everything was permitted. On several occasions, 504 allowed its agents to kill people without the authorization - or even the knowledge - of the unit’s superiors. 

... Israeli intelligence [1970s] was establishing a permanent presence in Lebanon, both to gather information on Arafat and to destabilize the PLO. With Begin’s vigorous support, they forged a secret alliance with the Phalange, the militia of the Lebanese Maronite Christians, the Palestinians’ most bitter enemies. The Christians had their own sources, and they shared the information they gathered with Israel. Under the protection of the Phalange, the Mossad was also able to set up its own base close to Beirut, and IDF officers were able to conduct scouting parties throughout Lebanon, gathering important intelligence about the PLO and Syrian forces.

However, this partnership came at a moral price. The Phalangists were exceptionally brutal, "a fundamentally corrupt gang of murderers that reminded me of a pack of wild dogs," said Uzi Dayan, Moshe Dayan’s nephew and a commander of Sayeret Matkal at the time.

They adorned their belts with ears severed from the people they killed, gruesome trophies of war. They boasted of the massacre they had carried out in the Palestinian refugee camp Tel al-Zaatar - the Hill of Thyme - in August 1976. "One thousand Palestinians in the ocean is pollution," the Phalangists said, almost as a war slogan, "but five million Palestinians in the ocean is the solution."

The Phalangists didn’t limit their brutality to Palestinians. Their chief executioner, an Israeli-trained Maronite militant named Robert Hatem, said he personally killed or oversaw the killing of some three thousand people. The Phalangists had commandeered an old cow slaughterhouse in Beirut’s Karantina quarter, where prisoners were taken. "Almost no one who came there to be questioned left alive," Hatem said. "We used to shoot them in the head and dump their bodies into lime pits - Syrians and Shiites and Palestinians and son-of-a-bitch officers of the Lebanese army. Everyone who wanted to kill us, we killed them first."

Hatem said that Mossad officers approved the killing of only a few prisoners, including four Iranian diplomats who were tortured before being shot and dumped in the pits. But the Phalangists’ wider rampage was clearly carried out with the strong backing of the Israelis.

That's almost the "official history" of what Israel has been up to. Ron Bergman even describes in detail in his book how much Sharon hated Arafat and wanted to kill him.

I cannot prove that Lebanon brought about Lebanon's Civil War in 1975 (though Dayan and Ben Gurion were definitely plotting it in 1954/55) but there's no question that Israel has had truly terrible effects there, arming sectarian criminals and inciting chaos and suffering.

Why has Hollywood never shown this appalling story, why is it not on our news every day what harm Israel does in the region?

Needless to say, Israel is almost bound to have done similar things in Syria - and its very possible that this whole catastrophe there has been brought about by them.

Reading messages from BM you should know what you're seeing, very nearly at first-hand.

I'm protesting assassination as government policy.

According to statistical analyses provided by Reprieve, 9 children have been killed for every targeted adult the United States has tried to assassinate, and, in numerous failed attempts to kill Ayman al-Zawahri, the CIA has killed 76 children and 29 adult bystanders.[5]   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Targeted_killing

Its something that the US declared illegal - as it most certainly is in law.

While article 2(4) of the United Nations Charter prohibits the threat or use of force by one state against another, two exceptions are relevant to the question of whether targeted killings are lawful: (1) when the use of force is carried out with the consent of the host state; and (2) when the use of force is in self-defense in response to an armed attack or an imminent threat, and where the host state is unwilling or unable to take appropriate action.[30]

The legality of a targeted drone strike must be evaluated in accordance with international humanitarian law (IHL), including the fundamental principles of distinction, proportionality, humanity, and military necessity.[31] Ibid.

Neither possible excuse applies in this case. (Unless you tell me otherwise).

The fact that Israel has done so much assassination and the US is increasingly copying them makes Holocaust II and even WW3 much more likely.

In fact, near certain, since you dedicated yourself personally to "Eternal Conflict" in 2011.

Even that's not true - there was nothing "amazing" about this operation, not done with precision weapons.

It seems to have been a massive air-raid.

Reports say there were huge blasts.

As if dozens or 100s of civilians were killed in an air-strike and Special Forces only searched the ruins, found the tunnel, sent dogs down it whereupon Baghdadi blew himself up.

Special Forces then dug out his body to take samples.

Nothing very amazing about that.
