1948: War: When Israeli Jews massacred Arabs: Deir Yassin massacre – Also: COUNTER-MASSACRE

[The Jews, who are forever claiming that they are being massacred, were themselves doing massacres on many occasions. I've published the stuff from the NSA about the Six Day War. But here is just one tale from 1948. Notice the mention of rape, looting and other crimes perpetrated by the Jews. What fascinates me are the military statistics. I am fascinated by military stuff and there are some interesting facts herein and ratios that are of interest to me.  What is interesting here is that the massacre was followed by a COUNTER MASSACRE where the other side came and killed Jews. This is very similar to what happened between Blacks and Whites in Angola. Civil Wars are a topic that is of great interest to me. I think this will be the future: Civil/Race Wars. That's what's coming. Jan]

The Deir Yassin massacre took place on April 9, 1948, when around 130[1] fighters from the Far-right wing Zionist paramilitary groups Irgun and Lehi killed at least 107 Palestinian Arabs, including women and children, in Deir Yassin, a village of roughly 600 people near Jerusalem. The assault occurred as Jewish militia sought to relieve the blockade of Jerusalem during the civil war that preceded the end of British rule in Palestine.[4]

The villagers put up stiffer resistance than the Jewish militias had expected and they suffered casualties. The village fell after house-to-house fighting. Some of the Palestinian Arabs were killed in the course of the battle, others while trying to flee or surrender. A number of prisoners were executed, some after being paraded in West Jerusalem.[1][5][6] In addition to the killing and widespread looting, there may have been cases of mutilation and rape.[7] Despite an original boast by the victors that 254 had been killed, modern scholarship puts the death toll at far fewer. Palestinian historian Aref al-Aref counted 117 victims, seven in combat and the rest in their homes.[8] The number of wounded is estimated to between 12 and 50. Five of the attackers were killed and a dozen wounded.[1]

The massacre was condemned by the leadership of the Haganah—the Jewish community’s main paramilitary force— by the area’s two chief rabbis and famous Jews abroad like Albert Einstein, Jessurun Cardozo, Hannah Arendt, Sidney Hook and others. The Jewish Agency for Israel sent Jordan’s King Abdullah a letter of apology, which he rebuffed.[4] He held them responsible for the massacre,[9] and warned about "terrible consequences" if similar incidents occurred elsewhere.[10]

The massacre became a pivotal event in the Arab–Israeli conflict for its demographic and military consequences. The narrative was embellished and used by various parties to attack each other—by the Palestinians against Israel; by the Haganah to play down their own role in the affair; and by the Israeli left to accuse the Irgun and Lehi of blackening Israel’s name by violating the Jewish principle of purity of arms.[11] News of the killings sparked terror among Palestinians, frightening them to flee their homes in the face of Jewish troop advances and it strengthened the resolve of Arab governments to intervene, which they did five weeks later.[4] Four days after the Deir Yassin massacre, on April 13, a revenge attack on the Hadassah medical convoy in Jerusalem ended in a massacre killing 78 Jews, most of whom were the medical staff.[12][13]
