In Cold Blood at Deir Yassin on April 9, 1948First of all, the ones who derserve to be prosecuted are demented terrorists like Hamas, Hezbollah and Ahmdinejad. Jew Watch doesn't condemn them. Jew Watch is merely an anti-Semitic hate site, as wikipedia shows [to see the Wikipedia post, see the last post on this blog or go here].
Surprise: The World Tribunal Never Prosecuted Begin
But anyway, Jew Watch portrays Deir Yassin as just a peaceful village that was attacked by Menachem Begin in cold blood. For Jew Watch claims:
Early in the morning of April 9, 1948, commandos of the Irgun (headed by Menachem Begin) and the Stern Gang attacked Deir Yassin, a village with about 750 Palestinian residents. The village lay outside of the area to be assigned by the United Nations to the Jewish State; it had a peaceful reputation. But it was located on high ground in the corridor between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and according to Plan Dalet, it was to be destroyed and the residents evacuated.Actually, Iraqi troops were hidden there and were dressed as women. The Irgun told the civilians to leave in order to minimize civilian casualties. Many did flee. The events there are grossly exaggerated, in order to include another fairy tale of an Israeli massacre. Of course, the Arab radio station Voice of Palestine made up horrible lies about what the Jews did in Deir Yassin to encourage Arab nations to butcher the Jews in the holy land. The plan backfired. Tens of thousands of Arabs, who believed these false messages, fled, which played a big role in creating the Arab refugee problem, which is still a hot and controversial issue even today. So Deir Yassin wasn't simply a peaceful village. And why did the Arab raido station exaggerate what happened there?
Jew Watch, being the demented hate site that it is, joins in with the "Zionists murdered innocent Arabs at Deir Yasisn with cold-blood" chorus. The Deir Yassin attack wasn't par tof Plan Delet. It was a plan of the Hagannah, not the Irgun or Stenr Gang. And the Hagannah didn't attack Deir Yassin. It was mainly a plan to defend Israel from invasion and was to be activated after the British left.
Jew Watch makes the following false claim without any evidence:
n all over 100 men, women, and children were systematically murdered. Fifty three orphaned children were literally dumped along the wall of the Old City where they were found by Miss Hind Husseini and brought behind the American Colony Hotel to her home which was to become the Dar El-Tifl El-Arabi orphanage.
Nothing of the sort happened at Deir Yasisn. If it did, then why did the radio station Voice of Palestine feel that it had to make exaggerate. In fact, 50 Years of War actually interviewed an Arab who told the radio broadcaster at the VOP that the atrocities that the VOP would "report" didn't happen. The radio broadcaster responded that it is just a plot to shame the Arab armies to exterminate the Jews and to encourage more people to fight the Jews.
Below is an objective video that actually says the truth about the Arab refugee problem. It mentions Deir Yassin:
Jew watch also cuts and pastes and pastes an essay on the King David hotel by the Jewish Virtual Library. I will not bother to refute that here. Yet here are some passages from the Jewish Virtal Library page on the King David hotel attack that Jew Watch accidently included:
The King David Hotel was the site of the British military command and the British Criminal Investigation Division. The Irgun chose it as a target after British troops invaded the Jewish Agency June 29, 1946, and confiscated large quantities of documents. At about the same time, more than 2,500 Jews from all over Palestine were placed under arrest. The information about Jewish Agency operations, including intelligence activities in Arab countries, was taken to the King David Hotel.
A week later, news of a massacre of 40 Jews in a pogrom in Poland reminded the Jews of Palestine how Britain's restrictive immigration policy had condemned thousands to death.
Irgun leader Menachem Begin stressed his desire to avoid civilian casualties and said three telephone calls were placed, one to the hotel, another to the French Consulate, and a third to the Palestine Post, warning that explosives in the King David Hotel would soon be detonated.On July 22, 1946, the calls were made. The call into the hotel was apparently received and ignored. Begin quotes one British official who supposedly refused to evacuate the building, saying: "We don't take orders from the Jews."1 As a result, when the bombs exploded, the casualty toll was high: a total of 91 killed and 45 injured. Among the casualties were 15 Jews. Few people in the hotel proper were injured by the blast.
In contrast to Arab attacks against Jews, which were widely hailed as heroic actions, the Jewish National Council denounced the bombing of the King David.Other than the brief mention in the Jewish Virtual Library essay that Jew Watch cuts and pastes, it fails to mention that Britain restricted the amount of Jews allowed into Palestine. That condemned so many Jews [including Holocaust victims] to death.
it was that policy that got Zionist militias to fight the British. Plus, the British violated the obligation they had. In 1917, they issued the Balfour Declaration, which stated that the British would stay in the Palestine Mandate [including Jordan] until the Jews finish building their state. In 1922, the League of Nations made the Balfour declaration an obligation for the British to follow. Ye tone year before, the British designated 80% of the land to be Trans-Jordan [now known as Jordan]. In fact, Zionist militias didn't want to fight the British except as a last resort. It was Britain's policy of not allowing Jews in that got them to fight the British.
These are facts that Jew Watch doesn't want you to know about. Jew Watch wants to spread more anti-Semitic bigotry. And their agenda contradicts the facts, especially the facts that this blog is exposing.
