Day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year, for generations the unbroken string of massive crimes against humanity by the Israeli state against the Palestinians people has been seen and documented by the world. The words ‘world leaders’ and ‘heroes’ don’t exist in the same universe. But world societies remember. The Israeli state will be known for the rest of human history by its vulgar crimes. That’s the rest of human history. And no amount of copy/pasting easily refutable lies from Little Red Book sounding propaganda manuals can ever change that.
And as Emphyrio so patently demonstrated information exposing Israeli lies and propaganda, including by its apologists, is readily available. Books have been written about it. I’ve written the following in the CD comments a couple of times prior, but the Palestinian story can’t be told enough.
In 1947 the UN presented a solution of dividing Palestine into roughly even portions for the Jewish state and for the Palestinians. The Palestinians were in a similar situations as the Algerians with the French. Neither, understandably, wanted to divide their homeland into two parts with foreign settlers. When the Palestinians rejected the plan, the Israelis concluded they were not bound to the plan either and decided they would take not only half of Palestine but an additional 30% as well.
Menachem Begin: “The UN(1947) Partition of Palestine is illegal. It will never be recognize. Eretz Israel will be restored to the people of Israel. All of it.”
Even before 1948 Israel determined that 80% of Palestine would be used for the Israeli state. (So much for honest cooperation. Something the Israeli leaders would repeat again and again over the decades when it came to peace negotiations and cease fire agreements). Of the remaining 20%, what’s called the West Bank today was prearranged to be annexed by Jordan as an agreement that Jordan wouldn’t attack the Jewish state. This arrangement with Jordan was kept under wraps by Israel so it could maintain the false claim that its existence was under imminent threat. Another Holocaust. The remaining part, Gaza, had a considerable Palestinian population but which was assumed by Israeli leaders to eventually be part of Egypt, even prior to the Egyptian occupation of it.
In the 80% of Palestine that the Israelis mapped out for themselves, there were 660, 000 Jews and 900,000 Palestinians. In March 1948, a decision was made to expel as many Palestinians from that 80% of Palestine as they could. The known numbers as of the present range from 750,000 to 800,000. That’s greater than the present size of Denver or Boston or Seattle. This is why from 1948 onward, there has been hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees. And of course, no Israeli refugees. The lying Israeli propaganda stories about the Arabs broadcasting to their populations to leave and expect to return after the Zionists were removed, were created to explain the vast refugee movement. That lie has been exposed by Israeli historian Ilan Pappé and researched by Israeli journalist Benny Morris. (Morris went to England and used British archives which kept a record of every broadcast during that period).
The indigenous people lived there for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. When the ‘war’ was over, dozens of massacres had taken place, not the single one the Israeli officials said. 11 towns and some 500 villages were destroyed. Land, property, homes, of which the Palestinians owned with documents as proof, careers…all destroyed or stopped. Massacres were committed to ‘encourage’ the population to leave. The Israelis had committees to choose the best land, all planned. Said Moshe Dayan: “There is not one single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population. “
Writing to his son in 1937, David Ben Gurion wrote in part:
“We will expel the Arabs and take their place. In each attack a decisive blow should be struck resulting in the destruction of homes and the expulsion of the population.”
Talking to the General Staff in May 1948, dear benign, benevolent, Ben-Gurion stated: “We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of all Arab Population.”
Aggressions happened during the whole period of the British Mandate of Palestine (Mandatory Palestine, 1920-1948). The British keep good records. Here are some examples:
June 30, 1924. According to Israeli journalists Shlomo Nakdimon and ShaulMayzlish, Dutch Jew Jacob Israël de Haan was assassinated by Avraham Tehomi on the orders of Haganah leader Yitzhak Ben-Zvi for his anti-Zionist political activities and contacts with Arab leaders.

The following day he was dead. In 1982 Israel issued a postage stamp commemorating the two that carried out this act of terrorism.

Nuremberg called aggression the Supreme Crime. Those responsible for that aggression are responsible for everything that flows from that Supreme Crime. And now when generations later the victims maintain their protests the Israeli courts ‘legalize’ their murder. This all goes into the memory banks of world history.
One more thing. Your Fiction#8, which your Little Red Book didn’t identify as the Taba Summit, came amazingly close to forming an actual agreement. Your propaganda lie gets exposed when Zbigniew Brzezinski appeared on the Good Morning Joe show in December 2008 and which got uploaded to Youtube. Getting your propaganda shot down on a MSNBC infotainment show is about as lame as it gets for a crimes against humanity apologist and liar.
