Palestinians swore "Never Again." Yet these Jews have been doing that
systematically with the blessing of the United States of America who
created Israel. Do blame the Honorable Martyr Osama Ben Laden for
destroying the Jew Nest in New York? Notice that Ground Zero seems
never going to be other than Ground Zero. It is doomed to
destruction/ Recent reports say it never going to be like it was.
Where there is a Jew, there is Evil.

This weekend marked the 63rd anniversary of the massacre at Deir Yassin
village near western Jerusalem: April 9-10, 1948. Pre-state Zionist
militias descended on Palestinians, killing scores, many of whom were shot
at close range.
The massacre was publicized by propagandists looking to convince other
Palestinians in the vicinity to flee. Along with other terror campaigns,
such as burning crops and bullying villagers, the Zionist militias used the
bloodshed there to scare other Palestinians. Deir Yassin was re-settled by
Israeli colonists, something that even liberal Zionists like Martin Buber
Though there were other massacres, Deir Yassin stands out as especially
gruesome and instrumental to the capture of Jerusalem.
These are resources sent out by the Institute for Palestine Studies.
-Historian Joel Beinin called Deir Yassin "the most infamous massacre of
He wrote, "The efforts of the Zionist armed forces to retain Jerusalem,
including the massacre at Dayr Yassin, were an important factor prompting
the Arab population of western Jerusalem and its surrounding villages
(Malha, Lifta, 'Ayn Karim, etc.) to leave." (p. 11)
Beinin recounted a debate in the Knesset in 1949 in which one member said
"If you don’t know [about Dayr Yassin] you can ask" David Ben-Gurion. The
Knesset member also said, "thanks to Dayr Yassin we won the war, sir."
The exchange was published in this article (p. 23) by Amnon Kapeliouk.
-Nathan Krystall wrote that a Red Cross official said the 1948 Deir Yassin
massacre had no "military reason or provocation of any kind" in his article
on the de-population of western Jerusalem (p. 10)
-A 1991 Norman Finkelstein article on myths about Al-Nakba, in response to
Benny Morris, mentioned the Deir Yassin massacre, but places it in a
campaign to empty much of Palestine of Palestinians.
-Palestinian attorney Raja Shehadeh "grew up hearing about the massacre in
Deir Yassin but didn’t know that it was one of scores" that took place.
-There is some important testimony on Deir Yassin in the classic book, 'From
Haven to Conquest: Readings in Zionism and the Palestine Problem Until 1948.’
Ed. Walid Khalidi, pp. 761-766. It is for sale online.
-An important book — published in Arabic — is 'Dayr Yasin: 9 April 1948,’ by
Walid Khalidi. It is based on the personal testimonies of thirty survivors
of the Dayr Yasin massacre of 1948. It also draws on the accounts of
individuals from the groups that perpetrated the massacre: the Irgun, Stern
Gang, and the Palmach.
Woven together to form a composite picture of the events leading up to the
massacre, this narrative is distinguished from other accounts by its
comprehensiveness and its placement of the massacre in its wider
geopolitical context. The book contains six maps and six appendices that
list the victims and classify them by family, gender, and age.
