Israel’s ubiquitous Uzi submachinegun is being carried by a special bodyguard recently formed to protect Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal Family because of the latest terrorist campaign mounted by the outlawed Irish Republican Army (IRA). According to the Daily Express, the bodyguard has been trained by the Special Air Service, the crack unit that successfully stormed the terrorist-held Iranian Embassy here last year.
The Uzi is manufactured in Israel and, by license, in other countries. Its use by the U.S. secret service was revealed by television cameras during the attempted assassination of President Reagan in Washington last March 30.
