Hostility and Cruelty
As early as 1891, decent Jews were shocked at the actions of Zionist Jews:
"They treat the Arabs with hostility and cruelty, unscrupulously deprive them of their rights, insult them without cause. and even boast of such deeds; and none opposes this despicable and dangerous inclination." p144 The Gun and the Olive Branch: The Roots of Violence in the Middle East by David Hirst
Some of the Jews who dared to speak out against these Zionists were murdered by them.
As early as 1924 these sick racist Zionists killed Jews because they stood in the way of their racist plan. Even a religious Jew was targeted by Zionists as he left his synagogue. The Holocaust has been exploited to the max but it is important to remember that the Zionist agenda started decades before it and has no right to claim it as some sort of excuse for Zionist activities.
The info about the June 1924 murder of a religious Jew by Zionist Jews comes from page 165 of Fateful Triangle. "a religious Jew organizing among the largely anti-Zionist native Jewish inhabitants of Palestine" was assassinated by two Haganah agents "as he left the small synagogue in the 'Shaarey Tsedek' hospital." (Hagana was a Jewish terrorist group) Chomsky points out "the official history of the Haganah describes this "special activity" matter-of-factly, justifying the order "to remove the traitor from the land of the living" on the grounds of his "pathological character""
Chomsky makes the point that this very same kind of thing, killing a person as they leave their house of worship (for example the assassination of King Abdullah of Jordan) is supposed to prove the "inveterate evil" of Arabs which is supposed to be so different from the fabled "purity of arms" of the Jewish Zionists.
Menachem Begin (who was a Prime Minister of Israel) and Yitzhak Shamir (who was Foreign Minister of Israel) "are former terrorist commanders, with a bloody record of atrocities to their credit including the killing of Jews* as well as Britons and many Arabs, while the Secretary-General of the Jewish Agency until 1981 (Shmuel Lahis) was a man who murdered several dozen Arab civilians under guard in an undefended Lebanese village during the land-clearing operations of October 1948" pp164-165 Fateful Triangle
*"the Hagana archives archives contain the names of 40 Jews who were killed by Irgun and LEHI(Stern Group) [these are Jewish Zionist groups] men in the cource of their underground work or in the context of settling internal accounts" This does not include Jews killed by terrorist attacks aimed at others." In Haifa, Haganah had a torture chamber for the interrogation of Jews. - footnote pp164-165 Fateful Triangle
Long and Bloody Record
"in the single month of July 1938", "Irgun killed 76 Arabs with bombs in market places and the like." The official history of the Irgun makes little pretence that these actions were retaliatory, as is often alleged, referring proundly, for example, to the murder of 27 Arabs to prevent the celebration over the British White Paper limiting Jewish immigration, the murder of more 52 more when an Irgun member was arrested by the British, etc. The record is generally suppressed in the U.S., where cynics refer to terror and intimidation as an invention of the PLO." p 165 Fateful Triangle
In his book, The Gun and the Olive Branch, David Hirst has done a great job exposing these games, he gives examples of reporters being intimidated. "Behind closed doors some news types will admit they firmly adhere to the pro-Israeli line because it is editorial policy. This issue has long ceased having anything to do with right and wrong, it has simply become policy" Hirst explains "Many journalists privately admit that they fear the retribution of pro-Israel publishers and editors and 'generally understand critical words about Israel to be hazardous to careers'." Mark Schneider said that before he took up political activism on the Palestinians' behalf he wasn't sure the censorship or self-censorship over Israel existed. But Schneider now says, "I used to be skeptical about ... allegations of censorship and self-censorship in the American media, but now I've seen it first-hand." Schneider recounts how he witnessed the Rev. Bob Kinsey being asked by a reporter in the studio what the main reasons for troubles in the Middle East were. "Rev Kinsey spoke of the massive US military aid to Israel and the resulting instability it caused. The reporter's stunning reply: 'While I agree with you, if I say anything about US geopolitical interests with Israel, I might as well clean off my desk. ' Of course, the interview was never aired."- David Hirst, The Gun and the Olive Branch: The Roots of Violence in the Middle East, Nation Books; 2nd edition 2003 p57
David Hirst's book is a must have. It is an updated edition and it is incredible.
