CHICAGO 04/09/2014) – Today marks 66 years since the Deir Yassin massacre in Palestine that occurred on April 9, 1948, when Jewish terrorists crept into the small village near Jerusalem in the early morning hours and slaughtered nearly 200 men, women and children.
Deir Yassin was not the first massacre or even the largest that occurred between the Partition of Palestine in November 1947 and the end of the Zionist war in January 1949. But it was the one Zionist Jews used to terrorize the native Palestinians, causing them to flee their homes and their beloved Palestine. Deir Yassin has come to symbolize the Nakba, or Catastrophe.
The Zionism that was responsible for the Deir Yassin massacre continues today and is the driving force behind Israel’s occupation of Palestine. Zionism is a racist ideology that calls for a state of racial and religious purity, a tyrannical idea that is an affront to humanity. Zionism has at its core the call for the removal of Palestinians from Palestine. It is destroying Palestine and erasing the Muslim and Christian histories from the land, in the effort to Judaize the land.
