Zionists Deny Their Holocausts
March 23, 2014
"The [Deir Yassin] massacre site is a few hundred yards from the
Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum dedicated to victims of the Nazis.
Yad Vashem makes no mention of the massacre of Arabs
by the Judaic Nazis among whom we number Menachem Begin."
by Michael Hoffman
(Amazon.com book reviews)
This book is full of Zionist propaganda and holocaust denial.
One example: look at how Gordis treats the Deir Yassin massacre (see p. 75). He says accounts of the massacre are "hotly contested." In other words, the truth cannot be ascertained.
Gordis whitewashes the massacre, a war crime atrocity which is one chapter in the Israeli holocaust of the Palestinians. This type of holocaust denial will not land the denier in jail. There is not even a plaque marking the site of the Deir Yassin massacre.
Never forget? When it comes to Israeli slaughters of Palestinians it is incumbent on us to forget in order to qualify as morally respectable in western eyes.
Early in the morning of April 9, 1948, commandos of the Irgun, among whom was Mr. Gordis' hero Menachem Begin, and members of the Stern Gang, attacked Deir Yassin, an Arab village. It was several weeks before the end of the British Mandate and the declaration of the State of Israel.
The village lay outside the area to be assigned by the United Nations to the Jewish state; it had a peaceful reputation; it was even said by a Jewish newspaper to have driven out some Arab militants.
But it was located on high ground in the corridor between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, and with the knowledge of the mainstream Jewish defense force, the Haganah, it was to be conquered and held.
In spite of being better armed, the two Zionist terror gangs were at first unable to conquer the village. But after they elicited the help of a small band of Palmach troops (the elite fighters of the Haganah), Deir Yassin soon fell. The Palmach soldiers left; it was then that the massacre began.
That evening over tea and cookies, in the neighboring Zionist settlement of Givat Shaul, the Jewish terrorist told foreign correspondents that over 200 Arabs were killed and forty taken prisoner. This was reported in the New York Times the very next day (April 10, 1948, p. 6).
The Judaic terrorists claimed to have lost four of their own. They boasted of the "battle" but made no mention of the male Palestinians whom they had loaded onto trucks, paraded through some Jewish sections of Jerusalem, and then taken back to a stone quarry between Givat Shaul and Deir Yassin and shot to death.
On April 13, 1948 the New York Times reported that 254 Arab men, women, and children had been killed at Deir Yassin; there was no mention of prisoners.
The official Zionist leaders of the Haganah denounced the dissidents of the Irgun and the Stern Gang accusing them of massacre, robbery, looting and barbarism. Ben Gurion even sent an apology to King Abdullah. But this horrific act served the future state of Israel well.
As Begin said, "Arabs throughout the country, induced to believe wild tales of 'Irgun butchery' were seized with limitless panic and started to flee for their lives. This mass flight soon developed into a maddened, uncontrollable stampede. The political and economic significance of this development can hardly be over estimated." (Begin, "The Revolt," p.164)
While modern historians argue that Begin's claims were exaggerated and that the actual number of Arabs killed was closer to 100, they all agree that the massacre at Deir Yassin marked the beginning of the depopulation of over 400 Arab villages and the exile of over 700,000 Palestinians.
In spite of protests by Martin Buber, Albert Einstein and other noted scholars, within a year the village was repopulated with orthodox Judaic immigrants from Poland, Rumania and Slovakia.
Its Palestinian cemetery was bulldozed and its name was wiped off the map. It is today completely obliterated. The massacre site is a few hundred yards from the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum dedicated to victims of the Nazis. Yad Vashem makes no mention of the massacre of Arabs by the Judaic Nazis among whom we number Menachem Begin. Gordis has written a whitewash of a mass murderer. Shame!
Michael Hoffman's website is ironically named Revisionist History.org since it is official history that has been revised.
Michael sends this example of Zionist Holocaust denial:
This is from p. 6 of the "Comments" on Michael Hoffman's critical review at Amazon of Rabbi Daniel Gordis' new biography, "Menachem Begin."
This is one of 60 comments on Hoffman's controversial review. This particular comment was posted at Amazon today, March 24 by "Boz":
Since Amazon doesn't allow links, just google Hazem Nusseibeh and the Deir Yassin Massacre Lie. He is the father of the so called massacre. He was the one who concocted all the fantasy details of a grueseome massacre and slaughter. Hoffman want to tell Nusseibeh that, even though Nussiebeh was there and Hoffman was not, I have no doubt that someone like Hoffman puts his hands over his ears and goes lalalalalalala, just so as not to shatter his distorted view of history.
But then thats all the Israel haters. The guy who invented the atrocity lies admits there was no massacre, via broadcast invterview no less, most Arabs didnt want to play along, but of course with the Arab leadership truth had nothing to do with it. So Hoffman and all you guys can stuff it. And get some help for your cognitive dissonance.
What Hazem Nusseibeh told the BBC
about Deir Yassin
The video focuses on an interview with Hazem Nusseibeh, a member of one of Jerusalem's most prominent Arab families. In 1948 he was an editor of the Palestine Broadcasting Service's Arabic news.
In this interview with the BBC he admits that in 1948 he was instructed by Hussein Khalidi, a prominent Palestinian Arab leader, to fabricate claims of atrocities at Deir Yassin in order to encourage Arab regimes to invade the expected Jewish state. He made this damming admission in explaining why the Arabs failed in the 1948 war. He said "this was our biggest mistake", because Palestinians fled in terror and left the country in huge numbers after hearing the atrocity claims.
Nusseibeh describes an encounter at the Jaffa Gate of Jerusalem's Old City with Deir Yassin survivors and Palestinian leaders, including Hussein Khalidi... 'I asked Dr. Khalidi how we should cover the story,'. He said, "We must make the most of this. So we wrote a press release stating that at Deir Yassin children were murdered, pregnant women were raped, all sorts of atrocities"
In the video clip Abu Mahmud, who was a Dir Yassin resident in 1948, told the BBC that the villagers protested against the atrocity claims: We said, "There was no rape. But Khalidi said, We have to say this, so the Arab armies will come to liberate Palestine from the Jews."
This false press statement was released to New York Times correspondent, Dana Schmidt leading to an article in the New York Times on April 12, 1948, claiming that a massacre took place at Deir Yassin that was reprinted worldwide and cited even in Israel as proof of Israeli atrocities
Dr. Hazem Nusseibeh was a representative of Jordan at the Mixed Armistice Commission and he was Minister of Foreign Affairs.He was also the Permanent Ambassador of Jordan to the UN and has authored several books, including The Ideas of Arab Nationalism, Palestine and the United Nations and A History of Modern Jordan.
