Jaws (1975) The Head, the Tail, the Whole Damn Thing Scene..

A hag, or "the Old Hag", was a nightmare spiritin English and anglophone North American folklore.Haganah (The Defence) was a Jewish paramilitary organization in the British Mandate of Palestine (1921–48), which became the core of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).. During the 19361939 Arab revolt in Palestine, the Haganah worked to protect British interests and to quell Arab rebellion using the FOSH, and then Hish units..At that time, the Haganah fielded 10,000 mobilized men along with 40,000 reservists.. Although the British administration did not officially recognize the Haganah, the British security forces cooperated with it by forming the Jewish Settlement Police, Jewish Supernumerary Police and Special Night Squads, which were trained and led by Colonel Orde Wingate..The battle experience gained during the training was useful in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War..The Haganah was less active in the Jewish Rebellion than the other two groups, but the Palmach did carry out anti-British operations, including a raid on the Atlit detainee camp that released 208 illegal immigrants, the Night of the Trains, the Night of the Bridges, and attacks on Palestine Police bases..The Haganah also organized the Birya affair..After the British army, the Haganah was considered the most powerful military force in the Middle East..This variety of hag is essentially identical to the Old English mæra—a being with roots in ancient Germanic superstition, and closely related to the Scandinavian mara is a name for death personified and is sometimes identified with Yama..In Persian folklore, the Bakhtak has the same role as that of the Old Hag in English folklore... you trying to build your universal machine?..Love will make a man do strange things, I suppose..You will never understand the importance of what I am creating here!..What's that you're reading?..It's about cryptography..Messages that anyone can see but no one knows what they mean, unless you have the key...
