Breaking News!!!

We all know that Filipe Barry Miriam and University Rector love to tell stories of Hamas using Palestinians as human shields. Even though they have never provided any proof from a neutral source (probably because Israel bans the international media in Gaza)

So here is a shocking story about Israel. As yet it is also unproven, but will Filipe and co allow others the right to discuss possible illegal activities or is the Zionist propaganda machine the only party allowed to raise possible Hamas crimes without providing proof?

Israel Big Scandal: Israelis are killing Palestinians for Organs

How could it be? Where are all those organizations that work to save the human rights? Did they read what was written today in newspapers about yet again another crime against human beings and their right to decide…If you are asking "decide what", then continue reading...

Sweden's daily “Aftonbladet” published a report that said Israeli troops killed Palestinians and harvested their organs. The article headlined "Our sons are plundered for their organs," said Israeli soldiers harvested the organs of Palestinians after seizing them from the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

The report detailed how Israeli soldiers detained young men and after they died in custody returned their bodies with organs missing. The newspaper quoted several Palestinians as saying Israeli soldiers kidnapped their sons and stole their organs.

Interviewed by the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, on Wednesday, journalist Donald Bostrom said he wrote the article to push for an international investigation into the allegations.In his article, Bostrom discussed the case of Bilal Ahmed Ghanan, 19, who was accused of throwing stones at Israeli soldiers during the first intifada against the Israeli occupation.

The article says Ghanan was hiding in the mountains around the West Bank city of Nablus, fearing arrest. When he came down soldiers, shot Ghanan in the chest, legs and stomach, then took him to their camp on a military helicopter.Bostrom said he witnessed Israeli soldiers return the body to his family wrapped in green hospital sheets five days later. Bilal's chest had been cut open and organs removed. T

he article also carried a photograph of a dead Palestinian man with a line of surgical stitches running the length of his torso, apparently taken after an autopsy, as well as pictures of stone-throwing youths and Levy Izhak Rosenbaum, a New York resident arrested in an FBI sting last month and charged with plotting to buy a kidney from an Israeli and sell it to an American patient for $160,000.

At the same time that this organ campaign was going on, young Palestinian men were disappearing, and being delivered back to their villages five days later at night, dead and cut open," Bostrom wrote.Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Daniel Ayalon filed a formal protest with the Swedish government on Wednesday.

The story made headlines in Israel, where some commentators compared it to medieval accusations that Jews killed Christian children for their blood.

A Horrible, revolting crime done by the Zionist against the Palestinians... I call upon the entire word and specifically the Arabs organizations that work to preserve "human rights", to read the article and call for an inquiry...
Maybe will they be able to save those young Palestinians who deserve to live... As if it is not bad enough for them to be living in their own land, humiliated by the occupation, no it is not enough… They should also die and get their organs ripped away from their bodies for the Zionist to make money and live..what a bad irony!!

John A,

Once again !!!!!!

What does this have to do with the subject of the blog?????

If you can't follow the rules-you really shouldn't be allowed to play the game.-- "All comments should be relevant to the topic"!

But since when do you respect any rules??

You can discuss anything you want. But I am quite impressed with your sense of power that I command over the blog- you said-"will Filipe and co allow others the right to discuss possible illegal activities" !!!!

Wow !!! I wasn't aware I had such power–as to disallow you to discuss certain items.

What fool !!!!!

But I just don't get it ?? Even the article you posted said straight out-- the bodies were autopsied!!!! What is described is typical for an autopsy.

So what is your point ??-- The bodies should be returned without an investigation to determine the cause of death??

Is it simply impossible for you to stick to the subject of the blog?? Adult ADD perhaps ??? There are meds to help this condition.

Apparently no media coverage for this other than Haaretz--what does that tell you????

Hope   August 21st, 2009 5:04 pm ET

– Occupation. Barriers. Check points. Walls. Gaza's incarceration. Families thrown on the streets..Falafel kidnapping..And now for the Grand Finale! Harvesting human organs! Is there an end to this?

http://www.edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/europe/08/19/israel.sweden.organ.harvesting/index.html

"Israeli soldiers may have harvested organs from dead Palestinians"

"What I'm doing in my article is giving a range of examples of very active organ trafficking going on [in Israel]"

"He wrote the piece in reaction to a recently unveiled corruption scandal in New Jersey that allegedly involved the private sale of a kidney from a donor in Israel."

"All of the donors "come from Israel," Rosenbaum is alleged to have said."

http://www.edition.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/07/23/nj.corruption.kidney/index.html

"After that incident, at least 20 Palestinian families told Bostrom that they suspected the Israeli military had taken the organs of their sons after they had been killed by Israeli forces, and their bodies taken away - presumably for routine autopsies."

- Ofcourse Israel is outraged. This should to be brought to a higher level of investigation..If they have $1M!?!? to reward someone who is hallucinating about Mermaids, surely this is doable.

John A   August 21st, 2009 5:16 pm ET

Once more Israels police turn a blind eye to its Jewish criminals who abuse Palestinians. Only Jews are allowed the right to live in Israel.
Bye the way I have also posted blogs concerning Israels appalling marriage laws, but the moderator must have felt the organ scandal was more important.

civil marriages

that is the topic

do you understand English?
civil marriages

and for your "Only Jews are allowed the right to live in Israel", let's speak about the palestinian territories. Any Arab who sells land to a Jew will get the death penalty.

do you care?

university rector   August 21st, 2009 10:29 pm ET

Hope

as usual you adopt allegations as the truth

don't forget to protest the well poisoning by Israel (as alleged by Ms Arafat when she showed Hillary Clinton around) as well as the fact that Jews every year before Passover kill Christian children to bake unleavened bread with their blood!!!

Filipe   August 21st, 2009 10:34 pm ET

John A,

Pretty amusing!!! What does this have to do with the subject of the blog ??? Nada !!!

As well, what does your link have to do with "Only Jews are allowed the right to live in Israel.'- HAAAAAA!!!!!!! Where did you learn that ???

That's a pretty intelligent statement !!!! And you wonder why no one respects you or what you say. Duh!!!

As far as your whining and crying about the moderator failing to post your other submissions-–they must be even further off- topic than the ones they did approve!!!!!

Grow up !!! Get a life!!!

Filipe   August 21st, 2009 10:52 pm ET

Another whiner in the crowd who thinks a blog about Israeli marriage laws is somehow related to organ donations in New Jersey and organ transplants.

I wonder why CNN doesn't bother to enforce their policy of "All comments should be relevant to the topic " ??

Must be the fact that they are as amused as the rest of us as to how off the wall the comedy can get coming from those who digress from the subject matter!

The further they digress and the more more they whine and cry and whimper and slobber the funnier it gets !!

John A   August 22nd, 2009 1:00 pm ET

Filipe/University Rector – My first post was directly related to Israel’s disgusting marriage laws. However the moderator decided to post my second item which concerns Israel’s grotesque human organ farm in the west bank.

Filipe/ Rector if you don’t like what the moderator decides to be worthy, please go snivelling and crying to CNN. But they will probably tell you what the Swedish Government told Israel, “we believe in a free press”. Too bad Filipe / Rector the rest of the world does not have your dictatorial Zionist mentality.

As for Israel’s marriage laws, it proves once more that Israel does not have a real democracy. No democracy dictates who you can or can’t marry. Israel’s current marriage policy is a direct duplicate of Hitler’s philosophy in Nazi Germany. An inhuman attempt to create a purification within a society.

All religions of the world preach good will to all men, with the exception of Judaism. Judaism preaches good will to Jews first and the rest can go to hell. Even in biblical times, it is a documented fact, the Jewish synagogue preferred the Romans to release a murderer called Barabbas and to execute a peaceful man named Jesus. What type of religion from it absolute origins has always segregated man, turned one man against another, preferred murderers to peace lovers and prevented non Jews converting to Judaism. This has never been a religion with a philosophy to benefit mankind. Judaism has always been more similar to a religious sect, which promotes the power of its own followers and leaders.

Why have all religions with the exception of Judaism received their messenger from God. Simple answer: If Gods messenger appeared in the Jewish religion, a Jewish human could no longer have the power as the protector of the religion. Judaism is all about self servicing power and nothing to do with the good of humanity. Hence when Jesus arose and gained popularity, the Jewish leaders were jealous and requested that the Romans execute him.

Another hilarious fact about the Jewish religion: There is no archeologically/ historical evidence that the Jews were ever forced out of Judea into exile. Not one tiny bit of evidence. What actually happened is the original Jews over a period of time converted into Christians or Muslims and a few Jews kept their faith. In response to a falling number of followers, the synagogue wrote in its religious documents that it had lost its followers because they have been exiled. Simply they hated that there power was slipping away and they made excuses for themselves. THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE SHRED OF HISTORICAL EVIDENCE THAT JEWS WERE EVER EXILED BY ROMANS, ANCIENT ARABS OR ANYONE ELSE. IT WAS A SYNAGOGE EXCUSE FOR A HUG DROP IN FOLLOWERS.

The irony is that today’s Palestinians are direct descendants from the biblical Jew. The people of this region converted to being Muslims (again not a single shred of evidence that a Jewish exile took place, the story only appears in Jewish texts to explain the drop in people following the Jewish faith)

Why won’t Israel allow non Jews to marry Jews? Because Judaism is and always has been a manipulative power quest for a exclusive club. It is not a religion that preaches love to all mankind. Hence it is not really a religion, it is a religious sect. It is also a religious sect with a long history of abusing non followers. Judaism has demonstrated from Christ time to today’s Palestine that it has no love for non followers. It wants power and nothing else.

Nevertheless, I would agree with the moderator and the item about Israel’s army stealing body parts from Palestinian civilians is more important than the marriage rules of an extreme religious sect known as Judaism.

John A   August 22nd, 2009 1:23 pm ET

Too make things really simple for the simple Filipe/Rector,
Every month more appalling reports concerning the Israeli regime appear in the worlds free press.

There are too many strange happenings to brush under the carpet.
Something is diabolically wrong with Israeli society and this can no longer be hidden.

Up until the 1990s the world could only read what journalists wrote. And we all know that many of the largest press enterprises are under Jewish ownership.

Since the 1990s the internet has linked the world and the news can no longer be presented with extreme bias. Ordinary people can now report what is really happening in their area.

Since the birth of the internet, the Zionist strangle hold on the media has weakened. And now every month more ghastly stories from Israeli society leak out.

Filipe / Rector there are simply too many stories for you to deny and brush off with your ludicrous Zionist propaganda. Something is terribly wrong in Israel and it must be investigated. As the nature of Israels hideous crimes are so inhuman, it is time for the international community to take action. What’s happening in Israel is more sickening than the former South African regime and it is fast approaching the depths of Saddam Hussein’s depravity.

The international community may soon need to place a military force in Israel, to bring civilization back to some type of expectable humane standard.

miriam   August 22nd, 2009 8:41 pm ET

John A,

Great Swedish freedom of speech.

Of course there should be that privilege.

But this article tried to link false claims by Palestinians 18 years ago with an, as yet unproven, accusation of a few weeks ago.

Israel does not dictate who one can and cannot marry. Any marriage performed abroad is recognized, including gay marriage.

There is much debate within the country about how to introduce a form of civil marriage. The topic is not taboo as in many other countries of the world where civil marriage is rejected and any bride is forced to adopt the religion of her husband (and his numerous other wives).

Israel has citizens of many religions.
Not only Jews have the right to live in Israel!

There are no secrets swept under any carpets. But there are many carpets woven from fictitious, fairyland fibres, that are growing in size in order to deny Israel the right to clean, fair and free exposure.

That of course is perfectly allright with you, right?

John A   August 23rd, 2009 12:53 am ET

Filipe University Rector, are you capable of making a wild claim with proof????? By the looks of your Zionist blog entries the answer is NO.

Miriam when hideous stories about Israel appear in the world press on an alarmingly regular basis, you can’t say everything is anti Semitic propaganda. It seems you think the entire world is mad and only poor little Israel has integrity. What a bunch of fascists!

Filipe   August 23rd, 2009 9:13 am ET

John A,

Sorry that your "relevant" post didn't pass the scrutiny of the moderator! BWWAAAAA!!!!! Why don't you try again???? But believe me, I didn't complain about-- you did !!!! Are your suffering from episodes of MPD ??? Having trouble identifying with your true self?? Can't remember who you are??

You are the last one in the world who should have anything to say to others about religion and religious beliefs--you are the one who claims to have foregone his religious beliefs because it "followed too closely to the beliefs of the Jews". So , PLEASE--don't pretend to tell the rest of us that you actually have something of value to offer--you have nothing !!!

You are truly clueless. You are probably the only moron in the world who thinks that the Jews were never forced into exile from the Land of Israel. What an idiot. It is a well documented fact both in historical terms as well as archaeological terms. It is also a proven fact determined through scientific DNA evidence as well as linguistics. If you can't agree with any of those facts-that is your your right. But you need not whine and whimper and cry about the fact that the rest of the world actually acknowledges the fact. You wouldn't know the truth if hit you in the face.

I don't play your silly game of proof-you fail to believe anything other than what your simple, twisted little mind want to believe anyway.

(Lebanon is a place invented by the French in 1943) !! It's occupied by pastoral migrants from Arabia called Arabs!

If you think your rhetorical nonsense is upsetting to others–you are once again ignorant of facts. I find quite a comedy show you have developed over time with your ever changing claims of his history.

None of your whining, crying, whimpering, sniveling and slobbering will make Israel go away or give up Jerusalem as their undivided capital.

Did anyone watch this video that wrote on here? It was a love story. Some countries limit love stories for various reasons, religion is one reason. How sad. Use to, in some places, it was about nationality and skin color and I use to see it personally. In Israel there are issues, like everyone. How do other religions compare? I am just asking because I don't care to look it up myself. The Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist view on mixed religion/ skin color/ belief system/ whatever system. Is it a big deal? In my Christian church, no one cares if you wear silk or blue jeans, what you've done, your music preference, rock and roll or old time music, whatever. It is just about connecting with other people to get better and find God. Some faiths don't seem to try and do that to me. Some people are very, very violent and just want to blow up people. Too weird for me. I always figure there is payback for anything we do. I worry.

G.   August 24th, 2009 5:38 pm ET

John A. – I don't want to read a lot of this stuff. I'm just a simple country girl and not middle east. So, I believe in freedom and equality. My two basics. Are all people, female and male, free in the middle east to vote and be themselves. If not, and it's a toughie, is that the stated goal? It should happen in time.

Second, is there tolerance. Who can know the mysteries of God. Any religion who does not tolerate God talk, from another God person, is wrong in my book. Maybe someone has some secret God line down to them personally, but I doubt it. Peace and love and tolerance. We will learn eventually, even if crucified doing it maybe? Some want belief by violence and some want belief because there is real belief. Go figure. I guess God understands it, hopefully, because I don't like the violence stuff.

No Filipe, YOU ARE confused. Jews and Palestinians share the same human genome (Y-) chromosome haplotypes DNA. Therefore their human organs could be compatible. See, how there is a good reason to steal Palestinian organs you fool.

university rector   August 25th, 2009 5:49 pm ET

Arab violence against Jews is often alleged to have begun with the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 or as a result of Israel's capture in 1967 of territories occupied by Jordan. But even before the Mandate for Palestine was assigned to Great Britain by the Allies at the San Remo Conference (April 1920) and endorsed by the League of Nations (July 1922), Palestinian Arabs were carrying out organized attacks against Jewish communities in Palestine. Systematic violence began in early 1920 with murderous assaults by groups of local Arabs against settlements in the north and by Muslim pilgrims against Jerusalem's Jews. Again in 1921, Arab rioters attacked Jews in Jaffa and its environs. The primary agitator behind these attacks was Haj Amin al Husseini, who marshalled Arab discontent over Jewish immigration into violent riots.

In 1929, Husseini and his associates fomented a violent jihad as they called upon Muslims to "defend" their holy places from the Jews. As a result, pogroms were carried out across Palestine. Arab villagers sympathetic to Jews were often targets of murderous attacks by their Arab brethren as well. British forces were sharply criticized for not policing the territory adequately, for sympathizing with the Arabs, and for standing by and allowing havoc to be wreaked upon Jewish communities in Palestine.

In 1936, the Arab Higher Committee, led by Grand Mufti Husseini, launched a campaign of anti-Jewish violence across Palestine. Accompanied by a six-month-long strike, the campaign became known as "The Arab Revolt." As the British increasingly became targets of Arab violence, they used massive force to suppress the aggression.

Anti-Jewish Violence in Pre-State Palestine/1929 Massacres

Arab violence against Jews is often alleged to have begun with the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 or as a result of Israel's capture in 1967 of territories occupied by Jordan. But even before the Mandate for Palestine was assigned to Great Britain by the Allies at the San Remo Conference (April 1920) and endorsed by the League of Nations (July 1922), Palestinian Arabs were carrying out organized attacks against Jewish communities in Palestine. Systematic violence began in early 1920 with murderous assaults by groups of local Arabs against settlements in the north and by Muslim pilgrims against Jerusalem's Jews. Again in 1921, Arab rioters attacked Jews in Jaffa and its environs. The primary agitator behind these attacks was Haj Amin al Husseini, who marshalled Arab discontent over Jewish immigration into violent riots.

In 1929, Husseini and his associates fomented a violent jihad as they called upon Muslims to "defend" their holy places from the Jews. As a result, pogroms were carried out across Palestine. Arab villagers sympathetic to Jews were often targets of murderous attacks by their Arab brethren as well. British forces were sharply criticized for not policing the territory adequately, for sympathizing with the Arabs, and for standing by and allowing havoc to be wreaked upon Jewish communities in Palestine.

In 1936, the Arab Higher Committee, led by Grand Mufti Husseini, launched a campaign of anti-Jewish violence across Palestine. Accompanied by a six-month-long strike, the campaign became known as "The Arab Revolt." As the British increasingly became targets of Arab violence, they used massive force to suppress the aggression. The revolt was finally quashed in 1939. The resulting White Paper of 1939 reversed British commitment to a Jewish State (the raison d'etre of the Mandate) and drastically limited Jewish immigration into Palestine.

1920-21: Attacks and Riots

Josef Trumpeldor
Organized anti-Jewish violence began in earnest at the beginning of 1920. In January, Arab villagers attacked Tel Hai, a Jewish settlement in the Galilee near the Syrian border (then under French control), killing two members. Two months later, on March 1, 1920, hundreds of Arabs from a nearby village descended on Tel Hai again, killing six more Jews. Among them was Josef Trumpeldor — a Russian wartime hero who had fought in the Russo-Japanese war and who organized the defense of the settlements in the Galilee.

During the months of March and April, over a dozen Jewish agricultural settlements in the Galilee were attacked by armed Palestinian Arabs. These included Kfar Tavor, Degania, Rosh Pina, Ayelet Hashahar, Mishmar Hayarden, Kfar Giladi and Metulla. (Four of these — Hamara, Kfar Giladi, Metulla and Bnei Yehuda were evacuated after being repeatedly attacked, and the latter was completely abandoned.)

Around the same time, during the Passover and Easter holidays, a group of Palestinian Arab "Nebi Musa" pilgrims (making their annual pilgrimage from Jerusalem to the site they believed was Moses' tomb), were incited by Haj Amin al Husseini's anti-Jewish rhetoric to ransack the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem and launch violent anti-Jewish riots. The violence, which took place between April 4 and April 7, claimed the lives of nine people — five Jews and four Arabs — and left 244 wounded, the vast majority Jews. The British military administration, sympathetic to the Arabs, did not allow the Jews to arm themselves.

Jewish victims of Nebi Musa riots

Ze'ev Jabotinsky

Ze'ev (Vladimir ) Jabotinsky, a Russian journalist and Zionist activist, organized the defense of the Old City Jews with demobilized soldiers from the Jewish Legion who had participated in the British military campaign against the Ottomans. (Jabotinsky and Trumpeldor had organized and helped lead the Jewish volunteer military units that had fought with the British.) When the British authorities finally quelled the riots, Jabotinsky and 19 associates were arrested for possession of illegal weapons. Jabotinsky was stripped of his commission in Palestine, and was sentenced to 15 years of penal servitude. The Arab aggressors, by contrast, received much lighter sentences. Worldwide protests, however, forced the British to shorten and eventually revoke the sentences of Jabotinsky and his associates (as well as the incarcerated Arabs).

Haj Amin al Husseini
Meanwhile, Haj Amin al Husseini and other Arab leaders continued to incite against the Jews. On May 1, 1921, Arab rioters and policemen with knives, pistols and rifles took to the streets of Jaffa, beating and murdering Jews, and looting Jewish homes and stores. Twenty-seven Jews were killed and 150 were wounded. Attacks by Arab villagers spread to the Jewish communities of Petach Tikvah, Rehovot, Hadera, and as far north as Haifa. According to an Interim Report on the Civil Administration of Palestine to the League of Nation, dated June 1921:

Troops were employed and suppressed the disturbances, and the attacks on the [Jewish] colonies were dispersed with considerable loss to the [Arab] attackers. Martial law was proclaimed over the area affected, but much excitement prevailed for several days in Jaffa and the neighbouring districts, and for some weeks there was considerable unrest. 88 persons were killed and 238 injured, most of them slightly, in these disturbances, and there was much looting and destruction of property. There were no casualties among the troops…

A commission of inquiry, led by Sir Thomas Haycraft, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in Palestine, was set up to investigate the causes and circumstances of the riots and concluded that the violence was due to Arab resentment of Jewish immigrants to Palestine. As a result, the British High Commissioner, Sir Herbert Samuel, ordered a temporary halt to Jewish immigration. Ships carrying Jews were not allowed to land in Palestine.

In November 1921, another Arab attack on the Jewish quarter of the Old City was repelled by the Haganah, Jewish defense volunteers.

1928-1929: Jihad against Jews

Between 1918 and 1928, the Jewish population in Palestine doubled, to about 150,000. Palestinian Arabs were concerned about this and their leaders, with Haj Amin al Husseini at the forefront, fanned the flames of hatred and suspicion. Husseini, now the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, used the Western (Wailing) Wall — the last remnant of the Jewish Holy Temple compound — as a focal point for his anti-Zionist campaign.

In September 1928, a small group of Jews erected a "mechitza" (a divider to separate men and women during prayers) for Yom Kippur prayers at the Western Wall. The British forcibly dismantled the divider, but Husseini used this incident as a pretext to incite Muslims. He accused the Jews of attempting to seize Muslim holy sites, including the al Aqsa Mosque.

Arab rioters on Temple Mount, 1929 (from: Pillar of Fire)
A virulent propaganda campaign calling for jihad against the Jews resulted in the frequent beating and stoning of Jews worshipping at the Wall and culminated in widespread, murderous riots across Palestine in August 1929.

August 15, 1929 was Tisha B'Av, the day on which Jews commemorate the destruction of the Holy Temple. Thousands of Jews marched to the Wall to protest British restrictions on Jewish prayer there, and to reaffirm their Jewish connection to the holy site. They displayed their nationalistic fervor by singing Hatikvah (later to become Israel's national anthem). The following day, mobs of armed Arab worshippers inflamed by anti-Jewish sermons, fell upon Jewish worshippers at the Wall, destroying Jewish prayer books and notes placed between the stones of the wall. On August 17, a Jewish boy was killed by Arabs during ensuing riots in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Bukharan.

According to the Davar newspaper of August 20, 1929, incitement against the Jews was rampant, especially in the Jerusalem and Hebron area. Rumors were spread that Jews had cursed Islam and intended to take over their holy places; Muslims were told that it was their duty to take revenge. "Defend the Holy Places" became the battle cry.

On August 23, more than 1000 Arabs launched attacks on Jews throughout Jerusalem. Forty-seven people were killed. This was followed by widespread attacks on Jews throughout Palestine. Again, the British forbade Jews to organize armed self-defense units and within several days, 133 Jews had been killed and 339 wounded. Arab attackers sustained high numbers of casualties (116), almost all of whom were killed by British police trying to quell the violence. Jewish leaders reported that Arab attacks showed evidence of organized warfare; Arab assaults on Jewish communities extended from as far south as Hebron to Haifa, Safed, Mahanaim and Pekiin in the north. A state of emergency was declared and martial law was imposed by the British.

According to Dutch-Canadian journalist Pierre Van Passen who was in Palestine at the time, fabricated pictures of Muslim holy sites in ruins were handed out to Hebron Arabs as they were leaving their mosques on Friday, August 23, 1929. The captions on the pictures claimed that the Dome of the Rock was bombed by the Zionists. That evening, armed Arabs broke into the Yeshiva (Talmudic academy) and murdered the lone student they found. The following day, an enraged Arab mob wielding knives, axes, and iron bars destroyed the Yeshiva and slaughtered the rest of the students there. A delegation of Jewish residents on their way to the police station was lynched by an Arab mob. The mob then proceeded to massacre Hebron's Jews — both Sephardi and Ashkenazi — who had lived peacefully with their Arab neighbors for years. With only one British officer supervising, the Arab police made no attempt to prevent the massacre.

The head of Hebron's Ashkenazi community, Rabbi Ya'akov Slonim, had been on good terms with his Arab colleagues and offered his home as a refuge to Hebron's Jews, believing that they would be spared. But the mob broke in and killed the Rabbi, members of his family and all those assembled there. Van Passen gave the following account, revealing an attempted cover-up by British officials:

Photo of some of the members of the Slonim family, murdered in the massacre
What occurred in the upper chambers of Slonim's house could be seen when we found the twelve-foot-high ceiling splashed with blood. The rooms looked like a slaughterhouse. When I visited the place in the company of Captain Marek Schwartz, a former Austrian artillery officer, Mr. Abraham Goldberg of New York, and Mr. Ernst Davies, correspondent of the old Berliner Tageblatt, the blood stood in a huge pool on the slightly sagging stone floor of the house. Clocks, crockery, tables and windows had been smashed to smithereens. Of the unlooted articles, not a single item had been left intact except a large black-and-white photograph of Dr. Theodore Herzl, the founder of political Zionism. Around the picture's frame the murderers had draped the blood-drenched underwear of a woman.

We stood silently contemplating the scene of slaughter when the door was flung open by a British solder with fixed bayonet. In strolled Mr. Keith-Roach, governor of the Jaffa district, followed by a colonel of the Green Howards battalion of the King's African Rifles. They took a hasty glance around that awful room, and Mr. Roach remarked to his companion, "Shall we have lunch now or drive to Jerusalem first?"

In Jerusalem the Government published a refutation of the rumors that the dead Jews of Hebron had been tortured before they had their throats slit. This made me rush back to that city accompanied by two medical men, Dr. Dantziger and Dr. Ticho. I intended to gather up the severed sexual organs and the cut-off women's breasts we had seen lying scattered over the floor and in the beds. But when we came to Hebron a telephone call from Jerusalem had ordered our access barred to the Slonim house. [Van Passen, Pierre, Days of Our Years, Hillman-Curl, Inc., New York 1939]

In total, sixty-seven Jews were killed and 60 were wounded. The Jewish community in Hebron was destroyed.

Barely a week after the Hebron massacre, Safed, another one of the four Jewish holy cities, was subject to the same depredations. On August 29, 1929, Arabs from Safed and nearby villages assaulted and murdered their Jewish neighbors, burning and pillaging their homes. Witnesses called it a pogrom. Eighteen Jews were killed, 40 wounded, and 200 houses were burned and looted.

The following is an eyewitness account by David Hacohen, who immigrated in 1907 to Israel from Russia and later served in the Israeli Knesset from 1949-69:

I believe I was the first Jew to reach Safed from the outside after the massacre there. One Friday morning we heard that there had been a pogrom in Safed. We read the official announcement:

"On August 29, at 6:15, disturbances broke out in Safed. The army arrived on the scene at 8:35 and immediately restored order. There were some fatal casualties and many houses were burnt. The Jewish inhabitants were at once transferred to safety. Since then calm has prevailed in Safed" ...

...We had enough experience not to trust the reassuring official announcement...

We set out on Saturday morning. When at noon we entered the town through the main road, I could not believe my eyes. . . I met some of the town's Jewish elders, who fell on my neck weeping bitterly... Inside the houses I saw the mutilated and burned bodies of the victims of the massacre, and the burned body of a woman tied to the grille of a window. Going from house to house, I counted ten bodies that had not yet been collected. I saw the destruction and the signs of fire. Even in my grimmest thoughts I had not imagined that this was how I would find Safed where "calm prevailed."

The local Jews gave me a detailed description of how the tragedy had started. The pogrom began on the afternoon of Thursday, August 29, and was carried out by Arabs from Safed and from the nearby villages, armed with weapons and tins of kerosene. Advancing on the street of the Sefardi Jews from Kfar Meron and Ein Zeitim, they looted and set fire to houses, urging each other on to continue with the killing. They slaughtered the schoolteacher, Aphriat, together with his wife and mother, and cut the lawyer, Toledano, to pieces with their knives. Bursting into the orphanages, they smashed the children's heads and cut off their hands. I myself saw the victims. Yitshak Mammon, a native of Safed who lived with an Arab family, was murdered with indescribable brutality: he was stabbed again and again, until his body became a bloody sieve, and then he was trampled to death. Throughout the whole pogrom the police did not fire a single shot. The British police commander, Farradav, walked up and down the main street of the town, where everything was quiet, and did not go down to the scene of the massacre... Instead of protecting the Jewish population and its property, the police commander had evacuated four thousand Jews from their homes to the courtyard of Government House, leaving their homes to be looted and burned. While the looting and killing were still going on, the police were searching the Jews for arms... [Hacohen, David, Time to Tell: An Israeli Life 1898-1984, English translation from the original Hebrew, Cornwall Books, New York 1985]

1936-39

Toward the end of 1935 and the beginning of 1936, Arab demonstrations were held against Jewish immigration and purchase of land in Palestine. Tensions between the Arab and Jewish population grew. On April 15, 1936, Arabs attacked Jewish vehicles on the highway and murdered three Jews. The following night, two Arabs were shot by unidentified masked gunmen, in what the Arab community believed to be a reprisal attack by Jews. The gunmen were not identified, but soon false rumors were spread that Jews had murdered Arabs in the Jaffa area, upon which a Jewish bus was attacked and local Jews were assaulted. Within days, Arab mobs were assaulting and murdering random Jews and destroying Jewish property.

The violence — including murders, ambushes, plunder and arson — quickly spread throughout the country, and was accompanied by a general Arab strike to put a stop to Jewish immigration and the sale of property to Jews, and to demand the establishment of an Arab national government. It was the beginning of a three-year-long campaign of terrorism against Jews and British soldiers and officials, orchestrated by the Arab High Command led by Haj Amin al Husseini and known as the "Arab Revolt."

From May 30 – June 13, 1936, in more than 11 attacks, the Arabs destroy over 30,000 trees planted by Jews, as well as many fruit orchards,crops and barns. Telephone wires are cut throughout the district, roads are barricaded, and bridges and culverts are mined. Volunteers from Syria and Iraq aid the Arabs in their attacks.

In the third month of terror (June 16 – July 17) campaign, 9 Jews were killed, mostly in Arab ambushes on buses, and 75,000 trees planted by Jews were destroyed.

The Arab campaign of murder, intimidation, and sabotage continued through 1939, and on occasion, sparked isolated Jewish reprisals. According to the Report of the British government for 1937:

The [Arab] terrorist campaign took the form of isolated murder and attempted murder; of sporadic cases of armed attacks on military, police and civilian road transport; on Jewish settlements and on both Arab and Jewish private property..." In 1938, public security in Palestine "continued to cause the administration grave preoccupation. [Report by the British Government to the Council of the League of Nations on the Administration of Palestine and Trans-Jordan for the year 1937]

According to the Report of the British government for 1938:

The main difference between the course of events in 1938 and that in 1937 lay in the gradual development during 1938 of Arab gang warfare on organized and to a certain extent co-ordinated lines. By the end of the year, as the result of the arrival in the autumn of large military reinforcements, this gang organization was first dislocated and finally reduced to comparative impotence in the field. But in the towns terrorism persisted and the roads were still largely unsafe for normal traffic. In fact, the events of 1938 succeeded in seriously affecting the economic and social life of the country to an extent far greater than was the case in 1937. [Report by the British Government to the Council of the League of Nations on the Administration of Palestine and Trans-Jordan for the year 1938]

1938 Tiberias Massacre

On October 2 1938, an organized groups of Arab attackers massacred 21 Jews — including three women and 10 children between the ages of one and twelve — in the Old Jewish Quarter of Tiberias. The Arabs stabbed, shot and burned their victims. The New York Times described the organized rampage:

New York Times article about the Tiberias massacre

Not since the riots of 1929, when Arabs fell on Jewish men, most of whom were rabbinical students, as well as women and children, in the ancient towns of Hebron and Safed, has there been in Palestine such a slaughter as the attack of last night. The main synagogue of the town was destroyed by fire, and the district offices, the police station and the British police billet were fired on.

The attack apparently was well organized, since the Arab gang, before descending on Tiberias, cut all telephone communications. Coming in two parties from opposite directions at a given signal, which was a whistle blown from the hills surrounding the town, the firing began simultaneously in all quarters...

...The bandits rushed to the central synagogue and, finding there a beadle named Jacob Zaltz, killed him and then set the building afire...

...the Arabs broke in and stabbed and burned to death Mr. Kabin [an elderly American Jew who had recently come to Palestine] and his sister...

From there the bandits went on to the house of Joshua Ben Arieh, where they stabbed and burned to death Joshua, his wife and one son, and then shot dead his infant son. In the same house three children of Shlomo Leimer, aged 8, 10, and 12, were stabbed and burned to death. Proceeding farther, the Arabs broke into the house of Shimon Mizrahi, where they killed his wife and five children, ranging in ages from 1 to 12 years, and then set fire to the house.... [New York Times, Oct. 4, 1938]

Besides, how do you think he would be able to smuggle a Palestinian into the US ?? Duh!!!!

The Rabbi couldn't sell anything with a Palestinian label on it ! You of all people should know that.

Dear University Rector

Your cut n paste from http://www.woe_to_ the_ jews.con was poorly put together. To spare us the pain of reading your cut n paste do you actually have a point?

Could it be that Palestinians have resisted the high jack of their country? Or is it that some Jews in history have suffered ( along with all man kind) So now you think its time for Jews to get away with murder?

Please do illuminate us with your open minded and educated views. But remember, you cant believe all you read at http://www.woe_to_the_jews.con, because its a con.

A bit like weapons of mass destruction and your Zionist mate Bernie Mandof..we can beleive in University Rector

"Could it be that Palestinians have resisted the high jack of their country? Or is it that some Jews in history have suffered ( along with all man kind) So now you think its time for Jews to get away with murder?"

you can't even read English.

none of the massacres mentioned took place after 1948

Jews lived in the places where the Arabs carried out the massacres for hundreds of years, that is well documented

you cannot disprove even an iota (if youy know what that word means) of anything I ever posted here, while you have been caught in lies again and agian and again

It was YOU who blamed the "occupation" not me

so now where was the occupation in 1920? 1929? 1936?

but Arabs massacred Jews in these years, without YOUR excuse of a Jewish state

TOUGH on you, CAUGHT YOU AGAIN!!!!!!!

There's been conflict in the region for thousands of years, including when Jews were exiled and only a small number remained.

No theme is more deeply embedded in Jewish history than exile and return. The biblical exodus from Egypt to the promised land, the return from Babylonian exile, and, most recently, the establishment of the state of Israel all affirmed the enduring determination of the Jewish people to return to their homeland.

Ye t another wrenching exile and return, now rarely remembered, occurred 80 years ago this week. On Aug. 23-24, 1929, the Jewish community of Hebron was exiled following a horrific pogrom. The tragedy is known as Tarpat, an acronym for its date in the Hebrew calendar.

Until 1929, Jews had lived in Hebron for three millennia. There, according to Jewish tradition, Abraham purchased the cave of Machpelah to bury Sarah. It was the first parcel of land owned by the Jewish people in their promised land. Ever since, religious Jews revered Hebron as the burial site of their matriarchs and patriarchs. Conquered, massacred and expelled over the centuries, Jews always returned to this sacred place.

After 1267, under Muslim rule, no Jews were permitted to pray inside the magnificent enclosure, built by King Herod in the 1st century, that still surrounds the burial caves. But following the expulsion of Jews from Spain at the end of the 15th century, a small group of religious Jews rebuilt a community of study and prayer in Hebron.

In August 1929, that community was suddenly and brutally attacked. Incited by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem—who claimed that Jews were endangering Muslim holy sites on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem—Arab rioters swept through Palestine. In Hebron, the carnage was horrendous.

It began on Friday afternoon when Arabs attacked Jews with clubs and murdered a yeshiva student. The next morning, joined by local villagers, Arabs swarmed through Hebron screaming "Kill the Jews." They broke into the home of Eliezer Dan Slonim, where many Jews had gathered for safety. There they wielded knives and axes to murder 22 innocents. In the Anglo-Palestine Bank, where 23 corpses were discovered, blood covered the tile floor. That day, three children under the age of five were murdered. Teenage girls, their mothers and grandmothers were raped and killed. Rabbis and their students were castrated before they were slain. A surviving yeshiva student recounted that he "had seen greater horrors than Dante in hell."

When the slaughter finally subsided, 67 Jews had been murdered. Three days later, British soldiers evacuated 484 survivors, including 153 children, to Jerusalem. The butchery in Hebron, Zionist and religious officials alleged, was "without equal in the history of the country since the destruction of the Temple." Sir Walter Shaw, chairman of an exhaustive British royal investigation, concluded that "unspeakable atrocities" had occurred.

Tarpat extinguished the most ancient Jewish community in Palestine. With synagogues destroyed, Jewish property converted into storerooms and barns for livestock, and the ancient cemetery desecrated, few signs remained that there had ever been a Jewish presence in Hebron.

But nearly 40 years later, after the Six-Day War of 1967, a small group of religious Zionists returned to Hebron to rebuild the destroyed community. "What was in the past in Hebron," declared their matriarch Miriam Levinger, "is what will happen in the future. Always!" So it would be.

The Jewish community of Hebron—some 700 people—recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of their return. This month they commemorate the 80th anniversary of Tarpat. All the other ancient peoples mentioned in the Bible have vanished. But Jews, a community of memory, still live in Hebron.

Hebron Jews are relentlessly vilified as fanatics who illegally occupy someone else's land. As religious Zionists, they are the militant Jewish settlers whom legions of Jewish and non-Jewish critics love to hate. It is seldom noticed that their most serious transgression—settlement in the biblical land of Israel—is the definition of Zionism: the return of Jews to their historic homeland.

—Mr. Auerbach, a professor of history at Wellesley College, is the author of "Hebron Jews: Memory and Conflict in the Land of Israel," published in July by Roman & Littlefield.

Total BS Miriam.

1800 AD: what conflict did the Jews have in the middle east?
1700 AD: what conflict did the Jews have in the middle east?
1600 AD: what conflict did the Jews have in the middle east?
1500 AD : what conflict did the Jews have in the middle east?
1400 AD: what conflict did the Jews have in the middle east?

Come on Miriam, explain your BS quote about a conflict for thousands of years!! The Middle East problems with the Jews only started when Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe high jacked Palestine in 1947

you ought to decide when Jewish immigrants came to Isarel to fortify the thousands years uninterrupted presence of Jews in the holy land. Was it 1947 as you claim now? Or was it 1910 as you claimed a few days ago? or was it in the 19th century after the progroms in Russia?

You ought to try and be more consistent in your falsifying of history, nobody will believe you if you change your stoty all the time!

Oops, nobody believes you anyway.....
