Corruption breeds terrorism. The free flow of information kills corruption. As a corollary be careful what secrets you let your government keep for secrecy leads to corruption.

The King David Hotel bombing, the second most deadly act of terrorism carried out in the middle east, killed 91 people. The hotel bombing was carried out by a pro-zionist organization, the Irgun, targeting the British. The leader of the Irgun, Menachem Begin, was a later Prime Minister of Israel. Israel was founded on terrorism. Note also that 1987-present over five times as many Palestinians civilians have been killed during the Israel-Palestinian conflict as Israelis. Most of the military campaigns Israel has been involved in (six-day war, Yom Kippur war) had similarly lopsided death tolls.

Also see the Israeli Nukes issue. Mordechai Vanunu spent 18 years in an Israeli prison after being abducted in Italy by the Israeli's for revealing information about Israel's nuclear weapons stockpile to the British press in 1986. Israel has at least 50 nuclear weapons in its stockpile yet even the thought of Iran getting a nuclear weapon is unacceptable to the U.S. This is one of the levers of power that the six million jews of Israel have over the 300 million Muslims in the middle east, another lever of power is the Israel lobby in the U.S. Why does the U.S. let Israel control its foreign policy and media? Because 30% of the billionaires in the U.S. are Jewish while they only make up 2% of the U.S. population.
