Its funny, how when talked about terrorism, all the israel haters here have is "The king david hotel", whyle ignoring hundreds of thousends
terrorist attacks against israeli cevilians.The Irgun chose it as a target after British troops invaded the Jewish Agency June 29, 1946, and
confiscated large quantities of documents. At about the same time, more than 2,500 Jews from all over Palestine were placed under arrest. The
information about Jewish Agency operations, including intelligence activities in Arab countries, was taken to the King David Hotel.
A week later, news of a massacre of 40 Jews in a pogrom in Poland reminded the Jews of Palestine how Britain's restrictive immigration policy had
condemned thousands to death.
Irgun leader Menachem Begin stressed his desire to avoid civilian casualties and said three telephone calls were placed, one to the hotel, another to
the French Consulate, and a third to the Palestine Post, warning that explosives in the King David Hotel would soon be detonated.
On July 22, 1946, the calls were made. The call into the hotel was apparently received and ignored. Begin quotes one British official who supposedly
refused to evacuate the building, saying: "We don't take orders from the Jews."1 As a result, when the bombs exploded, the casualty toll was high:
a total of 91 killed and 45 injured. Among the casualties were 15 Jews. Few people in the hotel proper were injured by the blast
