British conspiracy theories: The Jews pulled off the Entebbe hijacking

TO ANYONE GETTING HERE VIA RAIMONDO’S LINK: READ THIS FOR THE REAL STORY. Raimondo is lying to you. Entebbe happened, just as Wikipedia said it did. Occam’s Razor applies: If it looks like terrorism….


Okay. Get this. The British government has a file that blamed Israel for the Entebbe hijacking.

Yes, really.

In order to make people think badly of the PLO.

Yep. Conspiracy theories abound when it comes to Israel, apparently, even in the British government.

But it isn’t anti-Semitism. It’s anti-Zionism. Please don’t mistake this for any kind of anti-Jew hatred, just because it resembles typical anti-Jewish conspiracy theories.

Wow. I thought the Brits were crazy before this, but now I think they’re effing nuts.

The state of Israel was behind the hijacking of an Air France plane to Entebbe in 1976, and cooperated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in staging the affair, a UK government file compiled at the time of the occurrences and published by the BBC Friday revealed.

According to the file released by the National Archives, an unnamed contact told a British diplomat in Paris that the Shin Bet and the PFLP collaborated to seize the plane, which was hijacked in Athens and flown to Entebbe in Uganda, where 98, most of hem Israelis, were held hostage.

In the document, written on 30 June 1976 when the crisis was still unresolved, DH Colvin of the Paris Embassy wrote that according to his source, “the hijack was the work of the PFLP, with help from the Israeli Secret Service, the Shin Bet.

“The operation was designed to torpedo the PLO’s standing in France and to prevent what they see as a growing rapprochement between the PLO and the Americans.”

He added: “My contact said the PFLP had attracted all sorts of wild elements, some of whom had been planted by the Israelis.”

Okay. I get that there are a lot of things in government files, and some of them seem a little wrongheaded. But to make this wacky conspiracy theory into an official British government file is beyond the pale.

They used the typical anti-Semitic theory conspiracy elements: The wicked, evil Jews are sacrificing their own people to make their enemies look bad. Because it isn’t possible, I suppose, that people who hate the Jews do evil things because, gee, they hate the Jews. Like the PFLP and the PLO.

This is unbelievable. I can’t even make this stuff up. You wouldn’t believe me if I made this stuff up.

You would think I’d get used to this, but I am in utter shock that a British envoy to Paris saw fit to make an official government file out of this bullshit.

Un. Be. Lievable.

    This is disgusting!
    The next British theory will be that the 1972 Munich Olympic massacre was orchestrated by Israel to make the so called PLO look bad, and that Israel started the Yom Kippur war in 1973.

    What has happened to the Brits? Have they been completely taken over by the appeasers kissing the asses of the jihadists?.
    Effing scum bags.

  2. Before throwing too much blame around, I’d love to see the context of this file.

    Intelligence agencies are supposed to collect every piece of information that comes their way, no matter how screwy. They are then supposed to prioritize and classify it all, but even information proven false will still remain on file. It will be classified as as invalid, but it will remain available in case it should be needed in the future.

    I have no doubt that someone gave this file to the Brits, and that they filed it away along with everything else. This, in itself, isn’t damning. Much more important is what was done with this file afterwards. Did it just sit in a drawer until some anti-semite leaked it to the BBC, or did they take action based on it? And if they took action, what did they do?

    Meryl, every 6 month the British government releases documents from its files. That makes them official government documents. They are frequently full of rumour, rubbish and innuendo, but because they were written on government paper, to another civil servant or to an MP, they are official government documents.

    I don’t often back our government, but in this case, I must point out that being an official government document does not make it official government policy.

    At the time there was much praise (and envy) for the way the rescue mission was carried out.

    David Charlap is on the money with his comment about someone with an agenda leaking it to someone with another agenda at the BBC.

  4. I should also point out that the file could have been a memo with a header

    Look what thos conspiracy nuts at the PLO are claiming

    It would be similar to someone in the US government sending an email saying that some nut thinks that the US government has a magic computer (named the 666 monitoring every phone call being made in the world. Or an Air Force Intelligence person filing a report that saucer nuts think that their is a top secret facility in Roswell New Mexico where flying saucers are kept.

    If those are found and released, the you could see those headlines “quoting” the documents as if they were serious admissions by the government.

  5. Ed Hausman says:

    Boycott the Shin Bet!
    Boycott the official British files!
    Boycott the boycotts!

    So someone released an inherently inane file … and the British government hasn’t gotten around to providing the context that might identify it as speculative or worthless.

    They’d rather keep us guessing while they feed the conspiracy theorists.

  6. Joanne says:

    The Israelis working with the PFLP? That goes under the category of when pigs fly.

  7. Joanne says:

    Now that I’ve read the other comments, I can see their point.

    All the file was saying was that some informant (probably a dubious character) told the British diplomat this story. It says nothing about the British Government believing it. The diplomat was probably obliged to report the incident, and so the incident was reported and the report was filed away. That’s all.

    False alarm.

  8. Cynic says:

    So tell me, the US Admin files all the conspiracy theories about 9/11 just in case?
    Do the Intelligence agencies have no capable analists available to wade through the chaff?
    The Mossad would set up an operation with the PFLP which had been responsible for just about all the hi-jackings and terrorist attacks against Israel, including the Lod Airport massacre of passengers just to screw Arafat and his PLO?
    So basically the Israelis would partner the rejectionist front which was even more extreme than the PLO and sacrifice Jewish lives just to make Arafat look bad in the eyes of the Arabs?

  9. Cynic, I think that I can tell you that yes, all governments are required to file everything. The BBC probably left off the last sentence.

    This is a totally ridiculous nutjob. File anything he says under satire

  10. Cynic says:

    Sabba, so then I must take it that the British Govt., has filed away somewhere the recipe for matza that they got from a Russian operative?
    If they filed the PFLP/Mossad thing then it is because they wanted to believe it.

    “File anything he says under satire”

    Will bobbe meises do?

    Joanne said: “All the file was saying was that some informant (probably a dubious character) told the British diplomat this story.”

    Read Biased BBC for some interesting commentary:
    “… but that’s nothing compared to the BBC losing a whole Euro-Arab Parliamentarian. ……… ”

  12. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if the CIA had a file on every crackpot 9/11 conspiracy theory. And on the JFK assasination theories, etc.

    They have to open a file, investigate, prove the claim false, and then archive the results. This way, when someone else makes the claim in the future (when the people directly involved are retired, deceased or otherwise unavailable), they will have an official file to consult for the facts. Without that file, they’d have to investigate all over again.

    They can’t just dismiss a report out of hand, no matter what it says. They can’t take the chance that the crackpot theory might be true – the results of dismissing such a theory could be disastrous.
