[Israeli PM] Begin aided Argentina during Falklands War

#2
Doesn't surprise me one bit.

This would be Israel that made a tidy living selling on US military technology to the Chinese, until they got too clever for their own good and started modifying the Harpy Anti Radar drones they'd flogged to the Chinese to attack AEGIS radars and got their dicks slapped.

Napoleon Bonaparte, Adolf Hitler, umpty thousand former colonials, several popes, the fecking Roman legions and the Vikings, to name but a few, all had grievances with Britain at one time or another. We're still here. Get over it.

But ... when the Vikings and the Romans were attacking and/or invading the British Isles, weren't the inhabitants all Welsh (or rather similar?).

Well it may come back and bite Israel in the arse one day if the rag heads ever get their act together and decide Israels day has come.,Oy Vey!

I just do not understand why some folk seem to think that Israel is some sort of ally of ours or the Yanks. Repeated examples of Israel spying on the US, attacking that ship etc etc.

@petergriffen: yes, that does seem to be a widespread fear. Though perhaps it will be prevented? I don't imagine that it is in the US or Chinese or Russian interest to allow this to happen, and the forces of these countries could presumably neutralise the Israeli capabilities if they decided this was necessary. The land-based missiles cannot be too difficult to deal with, and I really wonder whether the German-built Israeli subs can be as hard to track and crack as their reputation suggests?

I get the impression the Israelis have the same attitude as Millwall FC "no one likes us, we don't care". I was on West Falkland 2 years ago and have at home a piccy of a Mirage wreckage where the Argy paint job has weathered revealing the Star of David underneath.
Wasn't Begin a member of the Stern gang which kidnapped two British Sgt's then hanging them and then planting IED underneath their bodies?
It may be worth mentioning that whatever our Government foreign policy faux paux in that region, the UK took in 30,000 Jews from Germany before the war, when the US would only take 10,000.

How much Argie kit was sourced from the UK? Not including their carrier and Type 42s (which allowed them to practise the lobe pecking techniques that contributed to losing Sheffield? We even tried to flog them Harriers, and at th time of the invasion, HMS Intrepdid was due to be sold to Argentina.
