How They Do It– ‘There was no massacre at Deir Yassin’
New book meticulously documents battle of Deir Yassin. Both Arab and Jewish testimony point to the same conclusion: there was no massacre.
ed note–The recent airing of a front page, high-exposure, multi-episode article in Haaretz dealing with Israel’s deliberate and pre-meditated attack on the USS LIBERTY, supported by recent releases of previously classified Israeli state documents that–while not outright admitting to pre-knowledge that the LIBERTY was American, nevertheless give strong circumstantial evidence thereof–is a textbook example as to why every piece of information coming out of the mouth of Judea Inc, from the mad rantings and ravings found in the Old Testament to those appearing in the JMSM today need to be viewed in their proper light, which is as extensions of the very Judaic paradigm that drives and influences all discourse and debate where Jewish interests are involved, which is ‘by way of deception, we shall make war on gentiledom’.
For 50 years, Judea Inc has maintained with a straight face and with great indignation that the attack on the LIBERTY was an ‘accident’ and that for anyone to even SUGGEST that it was done with deliberate malice aforethought on the part of America’s bestest buddy in the world is in and of itself a crime calling out to the heavens for justice. In pursuit of maintaining this lie, countless articles and at least one book written by a crooked and corrupt bankruptcy lawyer have been offered as the proper food at the banquet of lies surrounding this discussion and where no other dissenting views–including from eyewitness accounts by the survivors themselves–have been permitted.
And then, after all of this–BATTA BING, BATTA BANG, BATTA BOOM, Israel reverses course 666 degrees and begins in a very careful manner a politically-calculated discussion that indeed, she knew it was an American ship and indeed attacked it, but only AFTER being forced to do so by LBJ, president of the US at that time.
And now, we have a brand new, shiny, hot of the presses book detailing how there was ‘no massacre’ at Deir Yassin, and how everyone should completely disregard any and all testimony from those eyewitnesses who were there and who experienced this ‘non-massacre’ for themselves in a manner up close and personal with each and every one of their 5 senses.
Will it then be 50 years later that Israel will pull another fast one as she just did regarding her deliberate and pre-meditated attack on the USS LIBERTY and claim that indeed, there was a massacre, just as the eyewitness accounts have said, but that she was ‘forced’ to do it by outside forces, be they American, Syrian, Iranian, Russian, British, take your pick?
Please remember, fellow gentile-men and gentile-women, that there are rules of nature that MUST be considered and which MUST guide all our interactions and dealing with Judea, Inc that can be summed up thus in 7 simple words–
‘Fish swim, birds fly, and Jews lie’
Israel National News
In his new book, Deir Yassin: The End of the Myth, Prof. Eliezer Tauber, head of the Institute for the Study of Underground Movements at Bar-Ilan University and former Dean of the Faculty of Jewish Studies at the University, examines the events of that day in April 1948 when the Arab village of Deir Yassin was attacked by Lehi and Etzel (Irgun or IZL) fighters, and reveals step by step the origin of the myth that a massacre was committed against the villagers.
Prof. Tauber opened his recent interview with Arutz Sheva by highlighting the central conclusion of his book.
“Basically there was no massacre in Deir Yassin.”
In explaining what led him to that conclusion, Tauber noted that, since the Israeli-Arab conflict by definition consists of both Israelis and Arabs, it is not possible to reach real conclusions regarding the issues related to it without carefully examining the claims of both sides. This is in contrast to previous writers who examined the Deir Yassin affair by investigating only one side of those involved in the incident.
To write his book, Tauber thus turned to both Jewish and Arab sources, to the testimonies of Etzel (Irgun) and Lehi fighters, and to the testimonies of the Arabs at the scene. Not surprisingly, he said, the testimonies sound similar and express the same conclusion: There was no massacre at Deir Yassin.
The data collection process for the book included locating documents and recorded interviews conducted by the parties over the years, as well as interviews with some of those involved in the affair who are still alive.
According to Tauber, interviews with Arab refugees show an amazing picture that disproves the supposed massacre attributed to underground fighters by politically motivated parties who were not present at the event itself but addressed it later.
Prof. Tauber said that, at the beginning of his work, he embarked on a mission that was considered by many to be impossible – to locate each and every one of the Arabs present at the incident or who died during it, to identify all of them by name and not simply relate to them as “a bunch of Arabs,” and to understand the reasons for the death of each one, investigate these reasons and thereby gain a complete picture of the incident.
“When you understand how each one died, you can understand what happened there,” he said, asserting that the historians who later spread the rumors of a massacre “had no idea of what happened in Deir Yassin.”
In this context, he mentioned the description in Haaretz according to which the incident involved a few defenseless villagers. “They don’t know anything about the village because they based their claims on sources that were not at the scene,” he said, noting that in reality, “the village was fortified. There is a list of guard positions and more. A delegation from the village went to Egypt to obtain weapons. Weapons arrived five days before the attack, a result of totally random timing. Egyptian intelligence arrested them because they bought the weapons on the black market,” he said, noting that “if the weapons had not reached the village, all [the Arab villagers] would have fled, and not only 70 percent of them.”
Prof. Tauber went on to present a number of examples showing the intensive level of investigation he conducted. Among other things, he told of a moment during the event when Etzel (Irgun) men knocked on the door of a house containing a woman and five men, one of whom was holding a rifle.
The woman came out, and she is the one who survived and related the incident. Afterward, the man with the rifle came out, and when the Jewish fighters noticed the rifle, they threw a grenade, and the five men were killed.
Prof. Tauber argues that, based on familiarity with the Arab mentality, the man with the rifle came out to surrender, but the choice to come out with the rifle instead of throwing it down misled the Etzel fighters. The significance is that, while there was no real danger to the Etzel fighters, at the time it was impossible to know this, and their response was appropriate in light of what they perceived was happening.
“If anyone defines this as a ‘massacre,’ I have nothing to say to him,” Tauber said, adding that “At that time a procedure was very common whereby the [Jewish] soldiers surrounded their wounded with women so they would not be shot at, but the Arab snipers continued to shoot and hit the women. I am not arguing about ethics. My book is not a book of ethics but one about historical truth.”
So, then, how did the story of a massacre continue to blossom? Professor Tauber replied: “The story of the massacre grew out of two elements: There was one case – which was reported by the Etzel, in which a group of Arabs left the house and surrendered, but an Etzel fighter shot at them with a machine gun. This is the only exception. This happened in the lower part of the village. When an event happens at the bottom, all the Arabs in the upper part of the village can see it and, indeed, everyone focuses on that one family in their reports. Later, a foreign journalist interviewed one of the family members who was wounded, and she talked about shots at a family.”
Tauber continued: “Hussein al-Khalidi, the Supreme Secretary of the Arab Committee in Jerusalem, then the senior political figure in Jerusalem, was wondering how to enlist the Arab world in a struggle in which the local Arabs didn’t have a chance [on their own]. He told his aide, Hassan Nusseibeh, that they must begin to engage in propaganda because they do not interest the Arab countries. ‘We have to tell Deir Yassin, not as it really happened, but to exaggerate it,’ he said.
“We know this from Hassan Nusseibeh himself, as he has said so in interviews. And then they started to say that 254 people were killed and raped, and the problem of rape is the one that scared the Palestinians more than the killings, giving the story worldwide circulation. As the Arabs say, the person who caused this catastrophe is Hussein al-Khalidi.
“In the book I say that he wanted to prevent a catastrophe, but ended up causing one. It may be that from the logical point of view he did the logical thing, but things went wrong and that [false story] was the number one factor in the flight of the Arabs from Israel. That is how the myth was created,” said Tauber, who noted that Al-Khalidi’s assistant was responsible for the Arab radio broadcast from Jerusalem, so that the exaggerated story that they decided to spread could be immediately broadcast without British censorship. “Within minutes, the story spread across Israel with all the significance [with which it had been purposely imbued].”
And how was the myth born from the Israeli angle, the angle of historians like Meir Pa’il and others? “People like Pa’il came only at four o’clock, an hour and a half after the battle ended, as he himself attests in a report he did not think would be revealed to the public, and as his photographer Shraga Peled, who arrived only an hour later, attests. Likewise with Yechezkel Rabi and Mordechai Gihon, who was the first to arrive and said that he arrived half an hour later. They arrived after the event, and the sights were indeed terrible. Lehi and Etzel members attempted to dispose of the corpses by burning them. The stench was awful.”
Tauber also disproved the oft-cited claim that an Arab man was burned alive after being tied to a tree.
“They [who make this claim] do not know what happened in the village. The Arab was Abd Allah ‘Abd al-Majid Samur, a fighter who tried to escape on the trucks carrying the women and children. At that point, they identified him and shot him and tied the corpse to a tree to burn it. “They did not burn an Arab alive.”
On the interests that led to spreading the myth in the Jewish public, Professor Tauber explains: “Gihon, whose report should be read in its original form, included a remark that the operation attracted great sympathy for the dissidents and that propaganda needed to be produced to present the incident as a military and moral failure. Later these comments were omitted. Meir Pa’il came an hour and a half after the battle and related in his original report that he had seen corpses which he assumed had died in a massacre, meaning that he didn’t see one, but only imagined what had happened.
“Because he stood at the head of the unit working against [the underground Zionist groups vying with the Palmach] Etzel and Lehi, he described the incident as if he had seen the shooting with his own eyes and saw how they fired at people in the quarry. He claimed that there were photographs, but his photographer says he took pictures of dead bodies and not of the shooting itself. All the pictures are of dead bodies and not of the actual shooting.”
Tauber also noted that the Arab stories about the battle of Deir Yassin later reached delusional levels, while abroad the story is presented in such a way as to turn the Jews into Nazis. Nevertheless, he mentioned a blunt quote from an Arab interviewee who was asked whether there had been rape incidents in the village. He responded that this claim was false. “And the interviewer, who understands the effect of this rumor, says ‘In other words, the Jews are free of guilt on these matters, but we still have lost our lands.’”
Zionist Massacres against Palestinians:
Palestine Times: March 1993
The following list of massacres is by no means exhausive, but they reflect the nature of the Zionist occupation of Palestine and show that massacres and expulsions were not aberrations that happen in any war, but organized atrocities with only one aim, that is to have a Zionist state which is ‘goyim rein’
List of Massacres committed by Zionists against Palestinians:
13 December 1947: men of the Arab village of Yehiday (near Petah Tekva, the first Zionist settlement to be established) met at the local coffee house when they saw a British Army patrol enter the village, they were reassured espeically that Jewish terrorists had murdered 12 Palestinians the previous day. The four cars stopped in front of the cafe house and out stepped men dressed in khaki uniforms and steel helmets. However, it soon became apparent that they had not come to protect the villagers. With machine guns they sprayed bullets into the crowd gathered in the coffee house. Some of the invaders placed bombs next to Arab homes while other disguised terrorists tossed grenades at civilians. For a while it seemed as if the villagers would be annihilated but soon a real British patrol arrived to foil the well organized killing raid. The death toll of 7 Arab civilans could have been much higher. Earlier the same day 6 Arabs were killed and 23 wounded when home made bombs were tossed at a crowd of Arabs standing near the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem. In Jaffa another bomb killed six more Arabs and injured 40.
18 December 1947: Two carloads of Haganah terrorists drove through the village of Khisas (on the Lebanese Syrian border) firing machine guns and throwing grenades. 10 Arab civilians were killed in the raid.
19 December 1947: 5 Arab children were murdered when Jewish terrorists blew up the house of the village Mukhtar.
AL-SHEIKH VILLAGE MASSACRE
1 January 1948: On that night around two hundred Zionists armed with hand grenades and machine guns sneaked into a small village called al-Shaikh village (5 km South East of Haifa). The attackers came through the southern hills (most possibly from Nisher Jewish settlement wich lies about 5 km south of the village). They attacked the houses on the edges of the village with hand-grenades and finished off with machine-guns killing around 40 of the Palestinians inhibitants of the village, mostly women and children.
DEIR YASSIN MASSACRE
9-10 April 1948: The massacre that became the symbol of Zionist aggression against the Palestinians as well as Zionist treachery. The Mukhtar of the village had agreed with the Zionists to provide information on the movement of strangers in the area as well as other intelligence provided their village is spared. The Zionists were not to keep their side of the promise. In an operation which was called Operation Unity, the Haganah co-operated with the Irgun and the Stern Gang in this operation. At 4:30 am on Friday 9th April 1948 surrounded the village which was overlooked by two Jewish settlements, Givat Shaul and Montefiore. For two days Zionist terrorists killed men women and children, raped women and stole their jewellery. A chilling account of the massacre is given by a Red Cross doctor who arrived at the village on the second day and saw himself – the mopping up – as one of the terrorists put it to him. He says that the “mopping up” had been done with machine guns, then grenades and finished of with knives. Women’s bellies were cut open and babies were butchered inthe hands of their helpless mothers. Around 250 people were murdered in cold blood. Of them 25 pregnant women were bayoneted in the abdomen while still alive. 52 children were maimed under the eyes of their own mothers, and they were slain and their heads cut off. The Jewish Agency and the commander of the British ground troops knew of the massacre while it was going on, however, no one intervened to stop it.
NASER AL-DIN MASSACRE
13-14 April 1948: A contingent of Lehi and Irgun entered this village (near Tiberias) entered the village on the night of 13 April dressed as Arab fighters. Upon their entrance to the village the people went out to greet them, the terrorists met them with fire, killing every single one of them. Only 40 people survived. All the houses of the village were raised to the ground.
BEIT DARAS MASSACRE
21 May 1948: After a number of failed attempts to occupy this village, the Zionists mobilized a large contingent and surrounded the village. The people of Beit Daras decided that women and children should leave. As women and children left the village they were met by the Zionist army who massacred them despite the fact that they could see they were women and children fleeing the fighting.
THE DAHMASH MOSQUE MASSACRE
11 July 1948: After the Israeli 89th Commando Battalion lead by Moshe Dayan occupied Lydda, the Israelis told Arabs through loudspeakers that if they went into a certain mosque they would be safe. In retaliation for a hand grenade attack after the surrender that killed several Israeli soldiers, 80-100 Palestinians were massacred in the mosque, their bodies lay decomposing for 10 days in the mid-summer heat. The mosque still stands abandoned today. This massacre spread fear and panic among the Arab population of Lydda and Ramle, who were then ordered to march out of these towns after they were stripped of all personal belonging by Israeli soldiers. Yitzhak Rabin, Brigade Commander then says: “There was no way of avoiding the use of force and warning shots in order to make the inhabitants march ten to fifteen miles to the point where they met up with the legion.” Most of the 60,000 inhabitants of Lydda and Ramble came to refugee camps near Ramallah, around 350 lost their lives on the way through dehydration and son stroke. Many survived by drinking their own urine. The conditions in the refugee camps were to claim more lives.
29 October 1948: The following is the testimony of a Jewish soldier who participated in the occupation of the village of Dawayma (in the Haifa subdistrict): “…They killed between 80 to 100 Arab men women and children. To kill children they factured their heads with sticks. There was not one home left without corpses …. One commander ordered a soldier to bring two women into a building he was about to blow up… Another soldier prided himself on having raped an Arab women before shooting her to death…” The massacre was perpetrated by the 89th Battalion, the authors of Lydda massacre.
7 Febraury 1951: Israeli soldiers corssed the armistice line to this village (5 km from Jerusalem) and blew up the houses of the Mukhtar and his neighbors. 10 were killed (2 elderly men, 3 woemen and 5 children) and 8 were wounded.
14 October 1953: 9:30 pm about 700 regular Israeli troops attacked the border Jordanian village of Kibya, north west of Jerusalem. Using mortars, machine guns, rifles and explosives they blew up 42 houses, the local schools and the mosque. Every man woman and child found by these ciminals was killed. 75 innocent villagers were murdered in cold blood. The raids were ordered by Ariel Sharon.
KAFR QASEM MASSACRE
29 October 1956: Israeli frontier guards started at 4 pm what they called a tour of the Triangle Villages. They told the Mukhtars of those villages that the curfew from that day onwards was to start from 5 pm instead of 6 pm. They reached Kafr Qasem around 4:45 and informed the Mukhtar protested that there are about 400 villagers working outside the village and there is not enough time to inform them of the new times. An officer assured him that they will be taken care of. Then the guards waited at the entrance to the village. 43 Kafr Qasem inhabitants were massacred in cold blood by the army as they returned from work, their crime was violating a curfew they did not know about. On the northern entrance of the village 3 were killed and 2 were killed inside of the village. Amongst the dead were men, women, and children. Lutanat Danhan was touring the area in his jeep reporting the massacre, on his wireless he said “minus 15 Arabs” after a while his message on the radio to his H.Q. was “it is difficult to count”.
13 November 1966: Israeli forces raided this village, destroyed 125 houses, the village clinic and school as well as 15 houses in a neighbouring village. 18 people were killed and 54 wounded.
THE SABRA AND SHATILA MASSACRE
15-18 September 1982: After the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon Phalangist puppets of the Israelis massacred over 3000 Palestinian men, women and children under the watchful eyes of the Israeli army. A body count by the International Committee of the Red Cross revealed 2750 dead, the real figure is thought to be much higher and may never be known.
OYON QARA MASSACRE (RISHON LEZION:
20 May 1990: An Israeli soldier lined up Palestinian laborers and murdered seven of them with a sub-machine gun. 13 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces in subsequent demonstrations at the massacre.
AL-AQSA MOSQUE MASSACRE
8 October 1990: Israeli police opened fire on worshipers in al-Aqsa mosque killing 22 people.
THE IBRAHIMI MOSQUE MASSACRE
25 February 1994: A Jewish terrorist, from Keryat Arba’ settlement massacred 50 worshipers in the Ibrahimi Mosque in al-Khalil (Hebron) and wounded about 200. Later massive demonstrations took to the streets of Palestine and the Zionist army responded by live ammunitions, killing 23 and wounding hundreds more. Reports indicate there were 3 Jewish settler gunners, not only one.
THE JABALIA MASSACRE
28 March 1994: A Jewish undercover police opened fire on Palestinian activists brutally killing 6 and injuring 49. Some of the wounded activists were taken out of their cars and shot in their heads to death.
ERETZ CHECKPOINT MASSACRE
17 July 1994: Palestinian sources reported that the occupation forces had committed Sunday morning a disgusting massacre against Palestinian workers at Eretz Checkpoint. Eyewitnesses and Israeli sources reported that 11 Palestinians have been shot dead and 200 injured. Israeli sources also reported that 21 Israeli soldiers including 1 settler were injured. Two soldiers were shot by bullets, one died. As reported by Palestinian and Israeli sources, the scene was described as a war zone which lasted for 6 hours. Four Israeli tanks and helicopters were brought by the occupation forces, while a number of settlers took part firing at Palestinians. Protests had spread all over the Occupied Territories. In Gaza, Palestinians raised black flags and called for revenge. In Ramallah, shops closed while several clashes were reported. Several clashes were reported at Hebron University yesterday, and today two Palestinians were shot in Hebron.
These are just some of the massacres committed against the Palestinians by the Zionists. If the raids on southern Lebanon old and new were to be taken account the true magnitude of Zionist crimes against humanity could start to emerge. If one were to go into the gruesome details of the atrocities committed in 1948 the “mopping up operations”, the deliberate humiliation and massacre of Arabs and the desecration of the holy places of both Muslim and Christian as well as the looting of these holy places and personal property by the Israeli army and settlers, one might just start to appreciate what Zionism is all about.
Quotes from the Jewish Bible, the Torah:
“Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places:
And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it”Numbers 33:52,53
“And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.”
