Before beginning his work at Tel Dan, Dr. Biran had been a diplomat and government official and had nearly died when he was working for the Palestinian government in 1938. While riding in a military convoy, Dr. Biran’s car rolled over a land mine, which killed the three passengers in the back seat. Dr. Biran, who was driving, emerged unscathed, as did a police officer next to him. They staggered from the car, only to be attacked by gunmen, who shot the police officer in the face.
Wow — there was a Palestinian state even before an Israeli one! (On planet reality, Biran in 1938 was working for the British Mandate government, at the behest of the Jewish Agency.)
And I add a question: exactly who was it that placed the land mine?
Who were the "gumen"?
Extremist "settler" Jews?
Radical religious Jews?
Fanatic messianic Jews?
Or was it Arab nationalist terrorists who were revolting against the British between 1936-1939 led by the Grand Mufti?
What they were killing Jews even before Israel was created?
You mean their terror isn't a matter of the disputed territories?
