On 28 May 1948...This ordinance, signed by Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, established the Israel Defense Forces, which would be comprised of "land forces, a navy and an air force".

Did ya read that sentence? "Land forces, a NAVY, and an air force." We see (and read about) the IDF in the news, and to a lesser extent, the IAF. Don't forget to tell us about Israel's Navy while you share about the IAF & IDF. :-)

Thanks for the post, IAF! I've been pro-British, pro-Australian, and pro-Israel since I was a child. One of the saddest things for me to read about in history was the fighting between the British and the Jewish forces during the sad times of the infamous White Paper and the pre-independece of Israel. Like the fighting between the British and the Irish, to me, it is like watching two great friends fight each other. IMO, Britain made three big mistakes in her history: the way we Americans were treated during the colonial period, the way the Irish were treated, and the way the Jews in then-Palestine-now-Israel were treated in the 1930s and 1940s.

There is perhaps relevance for today's Israeli disunity in looking at the problems of the past between Haganah, Lehi and Etzel.

It was too bad it had to come to friction between the British and Haganah, I had a friend whose brother was
killed during those times and to this day he will not
call it Israel but "occupied Palestine".

I have in my collection one of the German K-98k rifles
that were bought and smuggled into Israel, it was rebarreled
into 7.52x51 the Nato caliber at a later date.
I have seen pix of the early IDF using these and Haganah
also. This one only has a small six pointed star stamped on
the barrel, but there are some with a full Haganah crest,
which I hope to aquire some day.

Peace be upon you and upon all Israel.
