Driving force behind Deir Yassin massacre still alive today

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.

(WASHINGTON DC, 03/17/2014) — The American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), a national education and advocacy group, is using the beloved Cherry Blossom Festival to attract attention to its message: US aid to Israel has got to stop.

Empowerment Through Education and Action

The American Muslims for Palestine firmly believes that educating the American public is key to bringing about change in the Middle East. Because once Americans know what is truly happening on the ground in Palestine, they will no longer allow their tax dollars to be used to support Israel's military occupation of Palestine, the world's last and longest-lasting occupation. We are all empowered to act for justice when we know the truth.
