On April 9, 1948, “Jewish” terrorist gangs attacked the village of Deir Yassin in Palestine, not far from Jerusalem. They were called the Stern Gang and the Irgun Gang which was headed by Menachim Begin. By noon that day 200 villagers had been systematically murdered.
Some of the victims were paraded through the streets of Jerusalem and some of the orphans from this slaughter were bused into Jerusalem and dumped on the street. This horrible debacle was publicized throughout the land causing more than 700,000 Palestinians to flee in terror into neighboring countries where they were forced into refugee camps and never yet allowed to return to their land.
Deir Yassin Remembered:
“The massacre of Palestinians at Deir Yassin [April 9, 1948] is one of the most significant events in 20th century Palestine and Israeli history. This is not because of its size or its brutality, but because it stands as the starkest early warning of a calculated dispopulation of 400 Arab villages and cities and the expulsion of over 700,000 Palestinian inhabitants to make room for survivors of the holocaust and other Jews from the rest of the world….
“Although most scholars no longer believe the myth that Israel was ‘a land without people for a people without land,’ that propaganda is still being taught today… Palestinians were dispossessed in 1948 and continue to be dispossessed today in the name of building a Jewish state in eretz (‘Greater’) Israel.
