      Make dua for Deir Yassin martyrs

      Date: Saturday, April 9, 2005
      Time: 12:00AM CEST (GMT+02:00)

      Early in the morning of April 9, 1948, commandos of the Irgun
      (headed by Menachem Begin) and the Stern Gang attacked Deir
      Yassin, a village with about 750 Palestinian residents. The
      village lay outside of the area to be assigned by the United
      Nations to the Jewish State; it had a peaceful reputation. But
      it was located on high ground in the corridor between Tel Aviv
      and Jerusalem. Deir Yassin was slated for occupation under Plan
      Dalet and the mainstream Jewish defense force, the Haganah,
      authorized the irregular terrorist forces of the Irgun and the
      Stern Gang to perform the takeover.

      In all over 100 men, women, and children were systematically
      murdered. Fifty-three orphaned children were literally dumped
      along the wall of the Old City, where they were found by Miss
      Hind Husseini and brought behind the American Colony Hotel to
      her home, which was to become the Dar El-Tifl El-Arabi
      orphanage.

      Part of the struggle for self-determination by Palestinians has
      been to tell the truth about Palestinians as victims of Zionism.
      For too long their history has been denied, and this denial has
      only served to further oppress and deliberately dehumanize
      Palestinians in Israel, inside the occupied territories, and
      outside in their diaspora.

      Some progress has been made. Westerners now realize that
      Palestinians, as a people, do exist. And they have come to
      acknowledge that during the creation of the state of Israel,
      thousands of Palestinians were killed and over 700,000 were
      driven or frightened from their homes and lands on which they
      had lived for centuries.

      Deir Yassin Remembered seeks similar progress on behalf of the
      victims of the Deir Yassin Massacre . . .
