Intelligence Gathering started by the Israelites with the invasion of peaceful Canaan and Grew, as mighty Super Powers Ravaged the World for Dominant Victories! (Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com)

 

Military intelligence is as old as warfare itself. Even in biblical times, Moses sent spies to live with the Canaanites in order to learn about their ways and about their strengths and weaknesses.

 

What followed was an effort to annihilate Canaanites as commended by God Yahweh only keeping the virgins alive to be fruitful on Earth triggering wars after wars which brought us to shock and Awe in the name of war on terror!

 

"Yahweh" is an abbreviation of the longer name, "Yahweh Sabaoth." It means, "He who musters armies."

The LORD delivers 10,000 Canaanites and Perizzites for slaughter in Bezek. As part of the fun 71 kings have their thumbs and big toes cut off.
(Judges 1.2,7)

Joshua Slaughters 31 kings (Joshua 12.1,24)

Elijah Murders 450 Priests of Baal (1 Kings 18.40)

Samson Slays 1000 Philistines (with an ass's jawbone! ) (Judges 15.16)

Usurper Jehu tricks all the priests of Baal into temple slaughter (2 Kings 10.19.30)

Numbers 25:4

And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.

God was delighted with the massacre:

"And the LORD said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing right in mine eyes, hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the 4th generation shall sit on the throne of Israel."

 

This can be extrapolated to explain what made US and British army so brutal since World War II, dropping nuclear bombs on Japan, killing millions in Korea and Vietnam!

 

Now imagine the sufferings of Iraqis, Afghanis and Palestinians into their hand! That is why world must stand tall!
