Count Folke Bernadotte

Lawrence of Cyberia commemorates the death of Swedish diplomat Count Folke Bernadotte, assassinated by the Zionists of the Stern Gang – with the approval of future Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, still alive but quite demented –  on September 17, 1948, the day after he submitted a progress report to the United Nations advocating, amongst other things, the Palestinian right of return.  The new State of Israel went through the motions of investigating the crime, but, needless to say, not one person was ever charged with the murder (although efforts were made to wind up the Stern Gang).  Count Bernadotte had saved a considerable number of Jews from the Nazis during the Second World War, which should tell us something about the nature of Zionism.
