Zionism II: Practice
Aggression, Torture, Mass Murder
by Dr. William L. Pierce
THE TREATMENT of the Arab inhabitants of Palestine by the Jewish conquerors of that unfortunate country provides an excellent example of Zionism in practice. (ILLUSTRATION: Arab political prisoners stand at attention under barbed-wire nets, in one of dozens of Israeli concentration camps for Arab dissidents. Arabs, having virtually no political rights in Israel, are often imprisoned for indefinite periods without a trial. The only country in the world with more political prisoners than Israel is the Soviet Union.)
After Zionist political pressure had resulted in the United Nations resolution of November 29, 1947, calling for the partitioning of Palestine and the handing over of a large portion of Palestine to the Jews as a “homeland,” war broke out. The Jews quickly moved to seize as much of the Arab portion of Palestine as they could, in addition to the portion awarded to them in the UN resolution.
In the Jewish land-grabbing campaign which followed, unrestrained terror was used to induce Palestinian villagers to flee their land, leaving it to be taken over by Jews. The occupants of entire Arab villages were massacred by the Jews for this purpose.
The Jewish terrorists invoked the Talmud to justify their atrocities against the Arabs. According to the teachings of the rabbis, they pointed out, “the earth was created only for the sake of the Jews,” (Vayikra Rabba 36). Therefore, it was permissible to slaughter the goyim (non-Jews) like the cattle they were, if the Jews might benefit thereby.
One of the more infamous instances of the application of this theory is the massacre at Deir Yassin. On the night of April 9-10, 1948, under the cover of a truce between Zionist and Arab forces in the area, Jewish terrorists occupied the Palestinian village of Deir Yassin and began systematically murdering all the Arab men, women, and children on whom they could lay their hands. Many of the victims were horribly mutilated by the sadistic Jews, and their corpses were afterward thrown down the village well to poison it. Altogether 254 Arabs were murdered in Deir Yassin that night.
When morning came the Jews rounded up more than 100 Arabs who had survived the massacre by hiding in cellars or to the surrounding orange groves.
These Arabs were tied together and taken to the Jewish quarter of Jerusalem, where they were forced to take part in a Jewish “victory parade.” As the roped Arab prisoners were led through the streets, Jewish mobs spit at them and showered them with stones — in a manner reminiscent of the way they had treated another prisoner more than 1,900 years ago, as he was being led to his execution.
The Arab survivors of Deir Yassin were not executed, however, but were turned loose and hastened on their way with a volley of small arms fire directed at their feet, so that they could spread the story of the massacre to other Arabs and terrify them into abandoning their land.
