    In Memory of Deir Yasin

    We must expel Arabs and take their places. We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.", David Ben Gurion, Ben Gurion and Israel the Palestinian Arabs, Oxford University Press, 1985.

    The ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Israel was not an unintended consequence, or fortuitous occurrence, or even a “miracle,” as Israel’s first president Chaim Weitzmann later proclaimed; it was the result of long and meticulous planning.”, Illan Pappe, Professor of Political Science at Haifa University, in his recent book “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine .”

    There is no doubt that Israel was born in sin, the sin of mass-murdering Palestinians, destroying their homes, bulldozing their villages, stealing their land and expelling them to the four corners of the world. Denying this cardinal reality goes beyond the pale of human discourse and common sense.

    Israel actually not only is denying the outrage, but has been using a huge propaganda machine extending from Sydney to Los Angeles, to cover, blur and justify its ongoing ethnic cleansing of the remaining Palestinians.

    Thus, Israel can be viewed, without a bit of exaggeration, as an illegitimate child of terror, genocide, rape and ethnic cleansing. The way it came into existence was an act of rape, it continues to be an act of rape and will always be an act of rape.

    This is why one is really affronted by the shameless Israeli demands that the victims of Zionism recognize Israel’s right to exist, as if all the massacres and ethnic cleansing perpetrated against the Palestinians by the children and grand children of the holocaust were commendable acts of charity.

    Deir Yasin will always be a stigma of ignominy on the forehead of Zionism, especially the racist ethnic East European Ashkenazi supremacists.

    It represented the brutal ugliness of their mentality and underscored the fact that Zionists, as Harry Truman said back in 1948, are like all underdogs, when they get on the top, they become as savage and brutal to their victims as their former oppressors were to them when they were underneath.

    What happened?

    On April 9, a combined force of Irgun and the Stern Jewish Gang supported by the Palmach forces captured the peaceable Palestinian village of Deir Yasin near Jerusalem . The Gestapo-like terrorists, commandeered by the certified Jewish war criminal and later Prime Minister of Israel, Menachem Begin, brutally murdered dozens of unarmed and unprotected civilians, including countless women and children. The exact number of the victims is not certain, but most estimates put the number between 100-250.

    Older men and young women were paraded in chains in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem; 25 of the captives were then brutally murdered in cold blood at a quarry in the nearby Jewish colony of Giva’at Shaul.

    The “History of the Hagana, “ as quoted by Walid Khalidi’s “All That Remains: The Palestinian villages Occupied and Depopulated by Israel in 1948) mentioned that at dawn on 9 April 1948, 120 men (80 from IZL and 40 and from LEHI) began an assault on the village and “carried out a massacre without discriminating among men, women, children and old people.

    They had fallen into their hands onto cars and parading them in the streets of Jerusalem in a ‘victory convoy’ amidst the cheers of the Jewish masses. After that, these ‘prisoners’ were returned to the village and killed. The victims included men, women and children, a total of 245 people.” (All That Remains, page 291)

    Survivors testified that the attackers slaughtered children, opened up the bellies of pregnant women with their bayonets and even played “football” with the decapitated heads of their victims.

    Following the massacre, fifty-three orphaned children were literally dumped along the wall of the Old City, where they were found by Miss Hind al Husseini and brought behind the American Colony Hotel to here home, which was to become the Dar El-Tifl El-Arabi Orphanage.

    Deir Yasin lay outside of the area assigned by the UN to the Jewish state; it had had a peaceful reputation. However, the fact that it was located on high ground in the corridor between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, it was coveted for occupation by the Zionist leadership under Plan Dalet.

    Indeed, the main Jewish Defense Force under the command of Ben Gurion had authorized the irregular terrorist groups of the Irgun led by Begin and Stern Gang led by another certified Jewish war criminal, Yitzhak Shamir who too later became Prime Minister, to carry out the takeover.

    The main and probably only aim of the massacre was to terrorize the native Palestinian inhabitants, who at that time, made up the vast majority of Palestine’s population into leaving.

    Indeed, the massacre carried the following message to the unprotected Palestinian villagers, that either you leave, or you will meet the same fate like that of Deir Yasin.

    The Israeli plan, augmented by dozens of massacres, many of which were greater in scope than Deir Yasin’s, did succeed as 750,000-800,000 Palestinians were forced to leave, fearing genocide.

    The Israeli leadership sought to distant itself from the massacre, claiming that it happened without its knowledge.

    However, it was crystal clear, as several Israeli Jewish historians stressed, that these massacres were part and parcel of a deliberate and well-devised Israeli plan to ethnically cleanse the bulk of Palestinian Arabs from their ancestral homeland. (see for example: Illan Pappe’s “the Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.” Published in 2007)

    Same mentality

    In fact, it is amply safe to say that the Zio-Nazi mentality that planned and executed the Deir Yasin massacre and numerous other genocidal atrocities against the Palestinians in 1948 is still intact.

    Today, and despite all the babbling about peace by Zionist leaders, ethnic cleansing of Palestinians remains Israel’s undeclared strategy.

    One could safely argue that the current Israeli government and Knesset include a majority of ministers and lawmakers who advocate one form or the other of “transfer.” And for those who don’t know, transfer is nothing less than a euphemism for “genocide,” at least a partial genocide.

    Even the Israeli Jewish public, which has been steadily and menacingly drifting to right-wing religious-Talmudic chauvinism, is enthusiastically favoring the idea of adopting policies and taking actions that would “encourage” Israel’s non-Jewish citizens to immigrate.

    Jewish apologists might argue that Israel, unlike Nazi Germany, is a democracy and that it is inconceivable that Israel would become a kind of a Jewish Third Reich.

    But this argument is superficial and misleading. Hitler himself came to power more or less democratically, and the vast bulk of Germans, supported him enthusiastically just as the vast bulk of Jews are backing the systematic policies of apartheid and repression against Palestinians.

    Besides, as the various German security organs were dominated by the “Nazis,” the Israeli army today is more or less dominated by Talmudic-minded religious Zionists who view non-Jews as virtual animals, whose lives are worthless.

    Hence, Deir Yasin would be a minor incident compared to what the present Israeli-Zionist mindset is capable of doing if Israel is allowed to continue on the path of racism and ethnic cleansing.
