Israel-Born from terror 1948- Died of terror 202?
« on: November 30, 2023, 10:02:PM »
     An examination of Israel's dark past by former Guardian Middle East journo(when it was still a proper newspaper with editorial independence, prior to the Snowden revelations and a visit from MI6) Jonathon Cook. A taster from the article below;

    "Last year a key deception was punctured: that Israel urged many of the war’s 750,000 Palestinian refugees to return. In a letter to Haifa’s leaders shortly after the city’s Palestinians were expelled, David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, demanded that any return be barred.

Now another letter, located by Israeli historian Yair Auron and published last week for the first time in English by the Haaretz newspaper, trashes the idea of an ethical Israel army.

Written by Shabtai Kaplan, a soldier and journalist, the letter confirms long-held suspicions of a massacre – one that dwarfs Deir Yassin – at Dawaymeh, near Hebron. Soldiers executed hundreds of men, women and children who offered no resistance.

The massacre, near the end of the war, was carried out by elite troops under the command of Yitzhak Sadeh. He developed the Israeli army’s famous doctrine of “purity of arms”.


"Kaplan’s letter was consigned to the vaults, as were so many other documents from 1948 that officials considered too damaging.

Nearly seven decades later, in an age of 24-hour news and social media, Israel is still desperately trying to conceal its darkest episodes by bullying the army’s current whistle-blowers.

Last week Benjamin Netanyahu’s government launched an investigation into Breaking the Silence. On Sunday Mr Netanyau called the collection of soldiers’ testimonies “intolerable”, indicating that he may try to ban the group."

     There is much more in the article. Worth reading in full.

     A link to the group that Netanyahu is thinking of banning, "Breaking the silence". It is the testimony of many former IDF speaking out about the atrocities committed against Palestinians daily.

Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005. Why didn't the sponsors of Hamas terrorism, namely the few Qatari billionaires, invest in the infrastructure and welfare of its Muslim brothers, rather than supply rocket fuel for  terrorist attacks on its neighbour?

   A more pertinent question should be,
    "Why don't the sponsors of Zionist terrorism, namely the western countries (US, UK et al) invest in the housing, health service and infrastructure of their own countries, rather than supply weapons and diplomatic cover for Zionist attacks on their neighbours?"

     Israel's supposed "withdrawal" is simple Zionist propaganda. They are still on stolen and occupied land in the so called "Kibbutz" on the other side of the Gaza fence. Israel control all air space, borders, fuel, electricity etc and are, according to all, an occupying power. Semantic word games straight from the Zionists mouths don't cut it. You should be ashamed to offer such shallow propaganda as an argument.

The League of Nations passed the 1922 Mandate for Palestine. A huge chunk of land was carved out to create what became Transjordan. Under the legal treaty Jews were given the right to settle on the land which now comprises Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. https://fanack.com/arab-palestinian-israeli-conflict/history-of-the-palestinian-israeli-conflict/rise-of-zionism/the-british-mandate-for-palestine/

A teenage Palestinian boy was shot a few days ago by Israeli forces for "celebrating" the release of Palestinian prisoners in the hostage negotiations with Hamas. No weapons, no attacks on the IDF, just cheering the release of Hamas hostages.

The deputy mayor of Jerusalem Fleur Hassan-Nahoum is seen defending the shooting by saying “part of the deal is that there would be no celebrations for the release of attempted murderers” (this was actually not a part of the deal, it was just a decree issued by Israel’s national security minister).

     https://informationclearinghouse.blog/2023/12/01/israels-savagery-is-so-shocking-its-sometimes-hard-to-take-in/

     Zionist apologists should read this and watch the interview with Jerusalem mayor. Pretending that the Zionist Israelis are humane, reasonable people who want to "share the land" is untenable. Listen to any Zionist regime official/spokesperson. They are sociopathic and see everyone else as less than human. Every single one is unhinged.

     Some more about the "birth" of Isreal and the terror and lies behind the myth.

                 THE BLOODY FOUNDING OF "ISRAEL" !

The background leading up to the desperate Hamas Operation/
Israel's final solution for the Palestinians.

In the 10 years before Israel was created, from 1937 to 1947, Israel launched at least 50 major terrorist attacks, blowing up 814 civilian aircrafts, two trains, one ship, and razing 385 Arab villages to the ground.

Note that the above are only "major" terrorist attacks.

Between 1947 and 1949, Israel attacked major Palestinian cities, destroying some 530 villages and killing some 15,000 Palestinians in a series of mass atrocities, including dozens of massacres.

On April 9, 1948, Zionist forces carried out one of the most notorious massacres of the war in the village of Deir Yassin, on the western outskirts of Jerusalem, where more than 110 men, women, and children were killed by the Zionist militia of the Irgun and Stern Gang.

During this period, 750.000 Palestinians were driven from their homes and became refugees in their own ancestral land.

Refugees have the right under international law to return to their displaced homes and to recover their property. So Israel's current occupation of Israel is illegal.

On December 11, 1947, Israeli terrorists threw bombs into a bus full of Arabs from a truck, killing six Arab civilians on the spot and injuring more than 30 people.

This kind of terrorist act was carried out on a daily basis by Israeli terrorists at that time, "insignificant" trivial incidents randomly picked out from historical records.

Bombing Arab buses was quite casual. Only bombing planes, trains and ships can be called "Big Terrorist Attack". Israel is the father of modern terrorism. Later, all terrorists were inspired by examples set by Israelis.

With this forceful means of expressing "protest", Israel's demand for statehood was finally met by the United Nations, and the Israel state was successfully established in 1948. It was assumed that Israelis would stop such terrorist attacks once they are given a state.

Before the founding of the Israel state, 14 passenger planes were bombed, but those were all planes parked at the airport, so not much of a challenge for the Israelis.

The first terrorist attack in human history to hijack a civilian airliner was invented by Israel.

In December 1954, Israeli terrorists hijacked a civilian airliner in Syria and this form of terrorism was born. However due to the systematic suppression of unsavoury terrorist acts carried out by Israel, these acts are now associated with Islamists.

Only after strong condemnation from the international community and having won several Middle East wars with the support of the United States and having gained numerous advantages (US military aid, hundreds of billions of USD worth's compensation from Germany) did Israel begin to become more "respectable" and endeavored to cultivate its image.

In order to quell the terrorist attacks launched by Israel in the Middle East, the United Nations announced the partition plan for Palestine and Israel, allowing Palestine and Israel to establish separate states.

According to the 1947 United Nations resolution, the Israelis, who constitute the minority, were allocated 57% of the most fertile, the most strategic part (coast etc) of the land in Palestine.

Whereas the Palestinians, who constitute the majority, were allocated 43% of the poorest part of the land of Palestine. One can only say that the Israeli lobby combined with Israeli terrorism was powerful and effective.

This land distribution plan was already very unfair, but the Israelis were not satisfied. Over the years, they have invaded almost the whole Palestine step by step through encroachment.

As you can see on the maps of Israeli expansion between 1946-2000, it's spreading.
Now almost the entire Palestinian area.

How have the Israelis managed to grab more than 90% of Palestinian land in the past half century?

Israel has massacred countless Palestinian civilians over the years. Violent beatings and killings are commonplace, and there have been many cases of openly shooting Palestinian women and children on the streets.

Protected by western governments and media, Israelis gained a moral pass to mass killings with perfect impunity.

This habit of killing Palestinians culminated in the killing orgy of the Beirut Massacre in September 1982.

The Israeli army blocked the Beirut refugee camp and carried out a horrific massacre that lasted 40 hours. A large number of women were raped and executed, and many boys were castrated and executed.

These atrocities triggered strong protests in many countries around the world.

On December 16, 1982, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution, condemning the massacre and characterized it as ethnic cleansing.

Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon claimed responsibility for the massacre and resigned from his post.

Thanks to Israelis' twisted values, Sharon became a national hero because of this massacre, and was elected as Prime Minister of Israel in 2001.

So Israel had a mass murderer as their prime minister and are proud of it.

Today Israeli settlements are whitewashed and beautified into these pastoral outposts in the desert.

In reality, they are Israeli invasion strongholds, all of which were force taken from the Palestinians by armed troops without spending a penny, and then retired soldiers were allowed to live in them as a reward for their services...

     The above from a thread linked in full;

https://nitter.net/PandemicTruther/status/1712407670991270344#m

      Israel's foundational myths are just that, myths. Zionist thugs and terrorists were ethnically cleansing and genociding Palestinians way before 1948. The list of atrocities then and since leaves no doubt who they are. The Zionist government were, are and always will be supremacist, racist thugs and criminals and their country built on lies, terrorism and genocide.

Let's redress the balance a little:

There never was in law something called Palestinian land. The Romans drove the Jews out of Judea and renamed the land Palaestina. The Jews had occupied that land since the time of Moses, 1500 years before Jesus came on the scene.

After the Ottoman Empire fell new states were formed. The name Palestine was kept, which was to become the home of the Jewish people. This was cemented at the 1920 San Remo Conference, and made law by the League of Nations in the 1922 Mandate for Palestine. But 70% of that land was carved out to create the state of Transjordan.

The United Nations Resolution 181, passed by the General Assembly in 1947, voted to divide the land now called Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. This was accepted by the Jews but not by Arabs. https://www.britannica.com/topic/United-Nations-Resolution-181

I hope this has enlightened America-China watcher, or whatever she calls herself.

      Steve, these non-people as you seem to believe them to be, are currently being slaughtered in the most inhumane way imaginable in their tens of thousands. Whatever your quibble about whether they are called "Palestinians" or not- what does that have to do with anything? What would you call them? They are the indigenous people, they were ethnically cleansed from 1940's onwards, they are refugees in their own land and that civilian population are currently being deliberately targeted by a state who are recognised by all nations and international law as illegal occupiers of that land. The land that they are currently "defending" via the novel means of bombing and killing children, medical staff, press, women, UN humanitarian staff, hospitals, schools, UN shelters, vital infrastructure and on, is beyond any agreed borders and is violently seized and occupied. Hence no right to "self defence" in any way. There is certainly no right to slaughter wantonly, as they have, whilst you consider whether they are "Palestinians"or not which you consider the important point to wrestle with.

      Steve, a more substantial question to wrestle with- What do you think of the US vetoing the resolution just put forward to the UNSC for a ceasefire? The whole world supports this for obvious humanitarian reasons. The vote was 13 in favour, UK disgracefully abstained (had no opinion one way or the other?) and the US vetoed. Do you agree with this and the US/UK reasoning for their abstention/veto?

    It is you who requires enlightening. Your "history" is false anyway and is simply Israeli talking points. It is telling, however. No such thing as Palestine  :-[, you embarrass yourself.
     Do you agree with the USA representative at the UNSC, that the resolution put forward by the UAE after Guterres, Article 99 intervention is, "divorced from reality". The rest of the world seem to think that it is a humanitarian imperative. What do you think? And what is your opinion on the UK representative effectively having no opinion, despite being a permanent veto holding UNSC member?

But you can't have a ceasefire whilst Hamas are still holding hostages. Why do you think that terrorist organization took hostages in the first place?

The issue could be solved quite quickly, if Qatar paid the Palestinians a large sum each to move to the state which was created in 1946. https://www.google.com/search?q=transjordan+map+1947&sca_esv=589305066&sxsrf=AM9HkKnaEk7lU735RS0F0iMToDQ7C7tH0Q%3A1702097070395&ei=rvBzZbPbF52jhbIPgY6fiAM&ved=0ahUKEwiz6oPaxYGDAxWdUUEAHQHHBzEQ4dUDCBA&uact=5&oq=transjordan+map+1947&gs_lp=Egxnd3Mtd2l6LXNlcnAiFHRyYW5zam9yZGFuIG1hcCAxOTQ3MggQABiABBiiBDIIEAAYgAQYogQyCBAAGIAEGKIEMggQABiABBiiBDIIEAAYgAQYogRInGNQ7QlY92BwA3gAkAEAmAHgAaAB-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&sclient=gws-wiz-serp#vhid=tlejB66RIZabVM&vssid=l

..because it didn't condemn Hamas.
