A little terrorism history
Got this from one of our team members. I don't know of this guy but it is an interesting article anyway.
I attached an image of a newspaper clipping. I hope it works.Sometimes, in order to make an operation idiot proof, you must remove the idiot!

Check the urban legends sites. Even though the story has been told in papers like the Washington Post, Pershing historians say it is probably a hoax.

When the Treaty of Versailles redrew the map of Europe after World War I by breaking up the Austro-Hungarian Empire and creating new nations, it acknowledged the principle of self-determination for nationalities and ethnic groups. This encouraged minorities and ethnicities not receiving recognition to campaign for independence or autonomy. However, in many cases self-determination was limited to European nations and ethnic groups and denied others, especially the colonial possessions of the major European powers, creating bitterness and setting the stage for the long conflicts of the anti-colonial period.
In particular, Arab nationalists felt that they had been betrayed. Believing they were promised post-war independence, they were doubly disappointed; first when the French and British were given authority over their lands; and then especially when the British allowed Zionist immigration into Palestine in keeping with a promise contained in the Balfour Declaration.
