Alternate Historian's Note: Well, the unexpected spewing of bodily fluids from various orifices has slowed down, thankfully, replaced by chills, dizziness and general fatigue.

Enjoy Stephen Payne's work, and we should be back to full posting tomorrow!

Moshe Dayan
Moshe Dayan
In 1973 the arch-terrorist Moshe Dayan is arrested in London. Subsequently he was taken to Gaza City and put on trial for the kidnapping and murder of Palestinian athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
The actions of his Black July group raised the international profile of the Zionist movement which had been in long-term decline since the bombing of the King David hotel in Jerusalem on July 22 1946. The group also injected a new level of violence into the struggle which only ceased after the two states solution faciltated at Camp David in 1982 by US President James Earl Carter.

Secondly, the Bacteriological weapons that Unit 731 handed to him, and in fact he only spoke to former Japanese General Otozoo Yamada the day before about re-activation. Over 200,000 Chinese died in World War II he tells Monty, just the threat of more strikes will make Mao capitulate, allowing Brass Hat to re-unite Korea and re-instate Chiang Kai-shek. 'There's no substitute for victory' he tells Monty.
