Mr. Moody is wrong on just about every account. The
jews are the ones who invented terrorism in the so-called
holy land, that is anything but holy today. Look
at just a few of the atrocities they have committed. I can
give you a much more
comprehensive list if you wish it. Which I doubt it seems
that no one in the media
wants to know the truth about anything anymore. But these
should suffice to
prove my point.
Former Knesset member Michael Bar-Zohar, a biographer of
Ben-Gurion, confirms that Ben-Gurion lied: "Ben-Gurion
believed that under certain circumstances, it was
permissible to lie for the good of the state. But Moshe
Sharett was astounded by his behavior. 'I told my wife
Zipporah that I would have resigned if it had fallen to me
to step before a microphone and broadcast a fictitious
account of what happened to the people of Israel and to the
Sharon's personal war to gain control of the Israeli
army's paratroopers had a victorious outcome as a result of
the Kibya raid. When the operational plan for the raid was
presented at Central Command's headquarters, the deputy
commander of the paratroop battalion balked at accepting the
assignment. Moshe Dayan had intended for the paratroop
battalion to attack Kibya, while Commando Unit 101 was to
"be responsible for the diversionary action in Shukba and
Nahalin." The refusal of the paratroop battalion's command
to participate in the Kibya raid resulted in Sharon's
gaining total command of the raid, combining his own
Commando Unit 101 with all of Israel's paratroopers. The
head of the paratroopers, Lt. Col. Yehuda Harari, was
subsequently forced to resign and Sharon amalgamated
Commando Unit 101 and the paratroopers into one command,
"designated Unit 202." From that day until today, when
every senior Israeli army officer has served in the
paratroopers, the paratroopers became the "murder" arm of
the Israeli army, carrying out raids against civilians and
murdering defenseless women and children. Only by sharing in
this type of guilt with his fellow paratroopers can an
Israeli officer hope to reach a senior rank.
Participation in the crimes perpetrated from 1948 to
1967 against Palestinians became a qualification for
promotion for the Israeli officer corps. No career officer
could achieve promotion until he had first taken part in the
commission of these crimes. The Records of the United
Nations Security Council from 1948 to 1967 include letters,
verbatim records of Security Council Meetings, and Reports
of the United Nations Truce Supervision units containing
hundreds of reports documenting these crimes. They include
1). The assassination of UN Mediator Count Folke
2). Expulsion of Palestinian villagers.
3). Attacks on Palestinian villages, destroying houses
and murdering civilians.
4). Attacks on civilian aircraft.
5). The massacre of Kibya.
6). Dragging a doctor from his car on the
Behtlehem-Hebron road; shooting him and killing him.
7). The Nahalin massacre.
8). Attacks on Palestinian villages in the Syruian truce
zones and on Syrian villages.
9). The massacre of Hussan.
10). Attacking a Lebanese aircraft.
11). Expelling Bedouins.
12). Shelling and air attacks against villages in
Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
The following crimes were investigated by the United
Nations Truce Supervision personnel, and Israeli guilt was

July 2, 1946: The King David Hotel in Jerusalem was
bombed. Killing 91 people. Menachem Begin, who was recently
given the so-called Nobel Peace Prize (It seems this prize
is given to the people who can kill the most Christians and
get away with it!), and is the same Begin who planned the
destruction of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir
Yassin. Ex prime minister, Shamir, was originally a member
of the Jewish terrorist gang called Irgun, which was headed
by none other than Menachem Begin. Shamir later moved over
to the even more radical "Stern Gang," which committed many
vicious atrocities. Shamir himself has defended the various
assassinations committed by the Irgun and Stern gangs on the
grounds that "it was the only way we could operate,
because we were so small. So it was more efficient and more
moral to go for selected targets." The selected moral
targets in those early days of the founding of the state of
Israel included bombing of the King David Hotel and the
massacre of Deir Yassin.
1946: Treaty. President Truman ordered the augmentation
of U.S. Troops along the zonal occupation line and the
reinforcement of air forces in Northern Italy after Yugoslav
forces shot down an unarmed U.S. Army transport plane flying
over Venezia Giulia. Earlier U.S. Naval units had been
dispatched to the scene. The Irgun Gang murdered almost 100
British by bombing the King David Hotel. Terrorism also was
(and still is) routinely practiced against Arabs to stampede
them out of Palestine, thereby reducing their demographic
strength even as uninvited Jews stream into the country.
April 9, 1948: Deir Yassin Massacre. The first major
massacre in the 1948 War was the massacre of Deir Yassin on
April 9/10, 1948. It was designed to spread terror and panic
among the Palestinian population in every city and village
of Palestine in order to frighten them into fleeing, so that
their homes and land could be confiscated for the use of
Jewish colonialist settlers. The tactics of the Zionist Jews
were to frighten defenseless people into fleeing their homes
out of fear for their lives.
1948: The following testimony of a soldier who
participated in the occupation of the Palestinian village of
Dawayma (in Haifa sub-district) on October 29, 1948 is only
the most recent disclosed item in a long chain of evidence:
"They killed between eighty to one hundred Arab men, women
and children. To kill the children they (soldiers) fractured
their heads with sticks. There was not one home without
corpses. The men and women of the villages were pushed into
houses without food or water. Then the saboteurs came to
dynamite them. One commander ordered a soldier to bring two
women into a
building he was about to blow up...Another soldier prided
himself upon having raped an Arab woman before shooting her
to death. Another Arab woman with her newborn baby was made
to clean the place for a couple of days, and then they shot
her and the baby. Educated and well-mannered commanders who
were considered 'good guys'...became base murderers, and
this non in the storm of battle, but as a method of
extermination. The fewer the Arabs who remain, the better."
1948: The Semiramis Hotel Massacre, in the Katamon
section of Jerusalem, by the Jews against the Palestinians.
The Jewish Agency escalated their terror campaign against
Palestinian Arabs. They decided to perpetrate a wholesale
massacre by bombing the Semiramis Hotel in the Katamon
section of Jerusalem, in order to drive out the Palestinians
from Jerusalem. The massacre of the Semiramis Hotel on
January 5, 1948, was the direct responsibility of Jewish
Agency leader David Ben-Gurion and Haganah leaders Moshe
Sneh and Yisrael Galili. If this massacre had taken place in
World War II, they would have been sentenced to death for
their criminal responsibility along with the terrorists who
placed the explosives. A description of the massacre of the
Semiramis Hotel from the United Nations Documents follows,
as well as the Palestine Police report on the crime sent to
the Colonial Office in London: "January 5, 1948, Haganah
terrorists made a most barbarous attack at one o'clock in
the early morning of Monday, January 5, 1948, at the
Semiramis Hotel in the Katamon section of Jerusalem, killing
innocent people and wounding many. The Jewish Agency
terrorist forces blasted the entrance to
the hotel by a small bomb and then placed bombs in the
basement of the building. As a result of the explosion the
whole building collapsed with its residents. As the
terrorists withdrew, they started shooting at the houses in
the neighborhood. Those killed were: Subhi El-Taher, Moslem;
Mary Masoud, Christian; Georgette Khoury, Christian; Abbas
Awadin, Moslem; Nazir Lorenzo, Christian; Mary Lorenzo,
Christina; Mohammed Saleh
Ahmed, Moslem; Ashur Abed El Razik Juma, Moslem; Ismail Abed
El Aziz, Moslem; Ambeer Lorenzo, Christian; Raof Lorenzo,
Christian; Abu Suwan Christian family, seven members,
husband, wife and five children. Besides those killed, 16
more were wounded, among them women and children."
May 1948: The U.S. appointed Count Folke Bernadotte of
Sweden to mediate between the Arabs and the Israelis. In his
first progress report (of Sept. 16, 1948) he recommended
that the U.N. should affirm "the right of the Arab refugees
to return to their homes in Jewish controlled territory at
the earliest possible date." The Israelis responded in their
own quiet way. The following day Bernadotte was murdered in
February 1949: Israel launched an offensive across the
Armistice lines with Egypt which brought its forces to the
Gulf of Aqaba, occupying the Palestinian police post of Umm
Rashrash which they afterwards named Eilat.
1950: Israelis seized the Al-Uja de-militarized zone on
the Egyptian side and Baqqara on the Syrian side, expelling
their Arab inhabitants and razed their homes to the ground
July 24, 1950: A fighter aircraft of the Israeli air
force violating the Lebanese frontier and the armistice
boundaries established by decision of the Security Council
attacked over Lebanese territory a Lebanese civil aircraft
of the Campaign Generale Transports on regular service
between Beirut and Jerusalem, in the following
1950-1955: Israeli forces unleashed more than 40 acts of
armed aggressions against Arab states, almost all causing a
heavy loss of life. This included attacks and massacres in
Qibya, Huleh 1953, Nahalin, Kfar Qassem in 1954, Gaza and a
Syrian outpost on Lake Tiberias in 1955.
March 30, 1951: On March 30, 1951, Israeli police
(illegally evacuated) the Arab inhabitants of the village
Baqqara, numbering, with the neighboring refugees living in
the same village, about 980. The village of Baqqara is
situated within the demilitarized zone on the western side
of the Jordan River in the Huleh area. It goes without
saying that such an action is a flagrant violation of
article V, paragraph 2 of the General Armistice Agreement,
which stipulates that no hinderance to the restoration of
normal civilian life by the inhabitants could be allowed in
the demilitarized zone.
April 10, 1951: A detachment of Israeli police, who had
illegally entered the demilitarized zone, opened fire on the
Arab village of Nuqueib with the intention of occupying it
in conformity with the Israel plan of systematic and
progressive occupation of the demilitarized zone.
May 2, 1951: An Israeli patrol seized cattle, which were
grazing near the demarcation line in the demilitarized zone.
The Israeli patrol, they said, had fired on Arab shepherds.
Small-arms fire was heard in that village and Arab villagers
armed with rifles attempted to recover the cattle. The
Israel patrol had by that time driven the cattle well within
Israel territory and had already killed fifteen cows.
May 6, 1951: Intense mortar fire lasting fifteen minutes
was opened on the Arab positions above Shamalne village,
with several rounds falling on the village itself. There was
in addition considerable rifle and automatic weapons fire.
Shamalne village was shelled with heavy mortar and field
artillery guns, at least 100 rounds falling in the village
or its close proximity. Shamalne village in the
demilitarized zone was the target of the fire. The mortar
fire decreased and shells landed on an adjoining hail.
Numerous casualties have been reported, the observer seeing
three Arab dead and two wounded.
May 7, 1951: The Israeli Army had violated the general
Armistice Agreement by attacking with artillery, air force
and infantry, the Arabs of Shamalne village who were
expelled from the demilitarized zone, leaving behind six
killed and forty-seven wounded.
May 9, 1951: Israeli forces started shelling and
machine-gunning the village of Shamalne. Several bombs fell
on the Buteiha area (Syrian territory), and on the Syrian
outpost of Al-Hassel; and one woman was killed.
September 1951: Incidents in the Gaza strip area, in so
far as they could not be disposed of by a sub-committee of
the Mixed Armistice commission, have been considered by the
Mixed Armistice Commission itself. At a meeting held on
September 23, 1951, it examined an Egyptian complaint
alleging that on September 19 Israelis had shelled the Beit
Hanum area in the Gaza strip and that they had blown up a
number of houses, killing and injuring some Arabs. The
Commission adopted the following resolution by unanimous
vote: "The Mixed Armistice Commission. Having examined the
Egyptian complaint dated September 19, 1951 and the report
of the investigation carried out by the United Nations
observer. Decided that the action carried out by the
Israelis on September 19, 1951 is a violation of article II,
paragraph 2, of the Egyptian/Israel Armistice Agreement."
October 19, 1951: A raid during the night of October 19
resulted in the destruction of the Gaza ice factory, the
death of one Arab boy and the injury of eleven other
September 2, 1953: The Israeli authorities started works
to change the bed of the River Jordan in the central sector
of the demilitarized zone. The purpose of these works was to
divert the river into a new channel, in order to make it
flow through territory controlled by the Israeli
authorities. These acts were accompanied by military
operations, also in the central sector of the demilitarized
zone. Partial mobilization has been carried out behind the
sector in question.
October 14, 1953: A battalion scale attack was launched
by Israeli troops on the village of Qibya in the Hashemite
Kingdom of Jordan. The Israelis entered the village and
systematically murdered all occupants of many houses, using
automatic weapons, grenades. and incendiaries, and dynamited
houses over victims' heads. On October 14 the bodies of 42
Arab civilians were recovered. Four men and 38 women and
children bore small arms or grenade wounds. Several more
bodies were still under the wreckage. Forty house, the
village school, and a reservoir were destroyed. Twenty-two
cattle were killed
and six shops looted. Approach roads from neighboring
villages were mined.
October 14, 1953: was a continuation of such brutal,
inhuman massacres as the King David Hotel, Semiramis Hotel
and Deir Yassin. But it was also a watershed in one of the
most sinister grand designs in military history - a
deliberate turning of an entire officer corps into a cabal
with shared personal guilt for vicious war crimes. The Nazis
organized a separate all-volunteer army, under Heinrich
Himmler, the Waffen SS. The SS was responsible for the
majority of the German war atrocities comparable to those
committed by the Zionists. In 1953, Ben-Gurion established
an SS equivalent in the Zahal, designated
as Commando Unit 101. This all-volunteer unit was
responsible for the Kibya massacre and was given exemption
from the rules of war as if the Geneva Convention never
existed. The first, and only, commander of Commando Unit 101
was Ariel Sharon, the single person most responsible years
later for the notorious Sabra dn Shatila massacre in Beirut,
Lebanon. The guilt of Commando Unit 101 was the in the most
sinister fashion extended first to the Israeli Airborne
forces, and subsequently to the entire career officer corps
of the Israeli Army. Sharon maneuvered the resignation of
the professional commander of the Israeli paratroops, Yehuda
Harari, and amalgamated the paratroops along with Commando
Unit 101 into Unity 202 of the Israeli Army. The
professionalism of the Israeli Airborne troops was thus
destroyed, turning all Israeli paratroopers, not just the
participants in the Kibya Massacre, into common criminals
and murderers of innocent men, women and children.
October 14-15, 1953: Under the command of Ariel Sharon,
Israeli squads attacked the unarmed Arab village of Qibya in
the demilitarized one. Where they blew up 42 houses and
killed more than sixty residents who were trapped inside.
The details were so gruesome that the U.S. joined in a U.N.
condemnation of the Israeli action, and for the first and
only time, suspended aid to Israel in reprisal.
December 18, 1953: Captain Mansur Mouawad, a Lebanese
physician in the service of the Army of the Hashemite
Kingdom of Jordan, was murdered in a brutal and barbaric
manner by an Israeli armed group.
December 21, 1953: An armed group attacked a Bedouin
camp near Tarqumyia wounding one man. Israel was condemned
by the Mixed Armistice Commission for this incident.
December 21, 1953: An armed group, using explosives and
automatic weapons, attacked a house near Hebron killing one
pregnant woman and two men, and wounding another man. Israel
was condemned for this incident.
February 17, 1954: An armed group, using explosives and
automatic weapons, attacked a house at Kharass Village
(south central area) killing one Jordanian and wounding his
ten-year-old son. Israel was condemned by the Mixed
Armistice Commission for this incident.
February 18, 1954: A patrol of two Egyptian soldiers in
Egyptian territory was attacked by armed Israelis hiding in
ambush. One of the Egyptian soldiers was kidnapped and
killed inside Israel-controlled territory, close to the
February 19, 1954: Armed Israelis opened automatic fire
across the demarcation line at an Arab working in his field.
The Arab was seriously injured.
March 29, 1954: Nahhalin village, an Israel armed force,
well equipped, surrounded the village from three directions
and penetrated inside the village and opened fire from
different automatic weapons, threw hand-grenades and placed
mines at some houses, including the mosque of the village; 9
persons - 8 men and 1 woman were killed, and 14 others were
injured and taken to a hospital.
June 12, 1954: Israeli terrorist activities against the
Arab population of Baqqara and Ghannama are continuing. A
large part of this population was obliged in desperation to
take refuge near the bridge of Banat Ya'coub and to request
admission to Syria. Clear proofs of this policy of
harassment and evacuation directed against the Arab civilian
population of the central demilitarized zone can easily be
furnished on request.
July 4, 1954: A high Israel military officer visiting
the two villages of the Arab population of Baqqara and
Ghannama said to the Arab population: "You must do one of
two things, either become Israel nationals or leave the
zone, your land your houses and your property and go to an
July 1954: Israeli intelligence planted "a ring of spies
(Moles)" in Cairo, its task was to begin sabotage operations
against selected Egyptian, British and American targets...On
July 14, the Alexandria post office was fire-bombed and the
U.S. Information Agency offices in Cairo and Alexandria were
damaged by fire started by phosphorous incendiary devices,
as was a British-owned theater. Members of the spy ring were
caught, and they confessed. They had been planted by Modin,
the Israeli military intelligence organization. The purpose,
presumably, was to sabotage Egyptian relations with the U.S.
and Britain. Various commissions of inquiry into the affair
conducted in Israel were never able to decide whether or not
Israeli Defense Minister Pinchon Lavon authorized the
August 30, 1954: An Israeli military force of about
three platoons crossed the demarcation line into Jordan
territory and opened fire against Kh. Sikka and Deir Al'Asal
villages. The group was supported by fire from within
Israel. The fire was returned by Arab Legion and National
Guard forces. The Israelis withdrew under cover of a smoke
screen, leaving munitions, medical supplies and food
containers behind them. One arab legionary was killed and
three members of the Arab national Guard were wounded.
September 1-2, 1954: A large force of Israeli soldiers,
estimated at battalion strength, crossed the demarcation
line from the direction of Im'in. The Israeli force opened
fire against the village of Beit Liqya well inside Jordanian
territory using automatic weapons, hand grenades and 2-inch
mortars, and blew a gap, with Bangalore torpedoes, in the
wire fence surrounding this village. At the same time,
another Israeli force was taking up positions in the hills
to the south of Beit Liqya, from which they were firing
heavily to support those who were trying to enter the
village. To the north, near Beit 'Ur at Tahta,
an Arab Legion modified troop-carrier, proceeding with
reinforcements to the scene, blew up on a land mine which
had been planted by Israeli soldiers. After the explosion,
Israeli soldiers who were lying in ambush rushed to the
truck, fired automatic weapons and threw an incendiary bomb
into it. As a result, two Arab legionaries were killed, one
was injured and three were abducted. Still another force of
Israeli soldiers advanced into Jordan along the Wadi el
February 28, 1955: Violent and premedicated aggression
committed by Israeli armed forces against Egyptian armed
forces inside Egyptian controlled territory near Gaza,
causing many casualties, including 39 dead and 32 wounded,
and the destruction of certain military installations, in
violation of, inter alia, article I, paragraph 2, and
article II, paragraph 2, of the Egyptian-Israeli General
March 9, 1955: Israel was condemned for an incident,
when an Arab farmer was wounded in the Gaza strip by an
Israeli patrol which fired across the demarcation line. The
wounded man was captured by two armed Israelis who crossed
the demarcation line.
April 2, 1955: The Mixed Armistice Commission found that
at about 0940 hours local time, Israeli soldiers had fired
at an Egyptian outpost with rifles, automatic weapons and
3-inch mortars, that an Israeli jeep had penetrated 100
meters into Egyptian controlled territory, and that, as a
result of this act of aggression, two Egyptian soldiers had
been wounded, one of whom had died of his wounds.
October 16, 1955: Israel forces opened fire on the
village of Dureijat, near the Banat Ya'coub bridge in Syrian
territory. Two people were seriously wounded.
October 22, 1955: An Israeli army detachment consisting
of about 250 commandos crossed the demarcation line and
entered Syrian territory. The detachment was equipped with
heavy arms. After penetrating two kilometers into Syrian
territory, the Israelis laid an ambush in the course of
which they set fire to a Syrian army car and seized an
officer and a soldier. Another military car drove up and was
subjected to heavy artillery fire, as a consequence of which
a Syrian officer and two soldiers were killed. The Israelis
then attacked and burned a third car. They further seized a
non-commissioned officer and
two soldiers. During the fighting which followed the above
mentioned operations, five soldiers were wounded. After the
Israeli detachment had withdrawn, the United Nations
observers noted at several points in Syrian territory,
traces of the acts of brigandage it had committed. The
observers found, among other things, hand-grenades, mines
and a large quantity of ammunition; they seize this evidence
at the outset of their investigations.
October 27, 1955: An Israeli patrol attacked the village
of Banias, seriously wounding an unarmed civilian.
April 5, 1956: Israeli armed forces started at 12:30
hours local time this morning to attack the cities of Gaza,
Deir el Balah, Abasan and Khozaa in the Gaza Strip.
According to the preliminary reports the casualties of this
military attack w hich has been taking place since this
morning are: 33 civilians killed; 92 civilians and 7 of the
Egyptian armed forces including an officer injured.
August 2, 1956: An armed group from Israel encountered
in this general area another Jordanian patrol and opened
submachine gun fire, killing 2 national guardsmen.
August 16-17, 1956: Two serious incidents resulting in
the death of nine Egyptians took place in the Egyptian
controlled Gaza area. In the first of these incidents a
group from twelve to twenty armed persons crossed the
demarcation line from Israel into Egyptian controlled
territory, where they exchanged fire with a three-man
Egyptian listening post. Shortly thereafter an Egyptian
patrol consisting of a sergeant and three other ranks ran
into the Israel patrol still in Egyptian controlled
territory. In the action following, the Egyptian sergeant
and two other soldiers were killed. The bodies had extensive
caused by grenades and bullets. The second incident of the
night of August 16/17 occurred on the main Gaza-Rafah road.
An Egyptian jeep with six passengers, namely an Egyptian
medical officer, a medical orderly and four soldiers, was
ambushed and attacked by a group of five to seven men. The
ambushing party had laid mines in the road and then attacked
the jeep and its occupants with machine gun fire. The
evidence indicates that the victims were killed by small
arms fire at close range. Tracks were followed from the
scene of the incident all the way to the demarcation line.
August 21, 1956: An Israel patrol crossed the
demarcation line in the Kh. Umm ar Rihan area. An exchange
of fire developed with a Jordanian patrol, as a result of
which three Jordanian national guardsmen were wounded and
one Israel soldier killed. Israel was held responsible in
the August 29 Mixed Armistice Commission emergency meeting.
August 30, 1956: An Israeli patrol crossed the
demarcation line in Deir el Balah area. A fire fight took
place between the patrol and Egyptian troops. The patrol was
supported by a mortar. Two Egyptian soldiers were killed,
two wounded. Three Egyptian soldiers interrogated at the
scene of the incident stated they heard three explosions and
an exchange of fire at 21:30 hours from a listening post.
When fire stopped they went to the listening post and found
one Egyptian soldier dead and a second who died within a few
1956: Squads of Israeli soldiers committed a hideous
atrocity in the Palestinian village of Kafr Qasim,
forty-seven innocent people were shot down in cold blood.
The careful and premeditated mass murders, never received
great attention in the West. Although the Israeli courts
convicted eight soldiers of murder, they were all released
within two years of their trial, and within three years one
of them who had been convicted of killing forty-three Arabs
in an hour, was engaged by the municipality of Ramleh as the
"officer responsible for Arab affairs in the city."
In October 1956: Israel, backed by England and France,
attacked Egypt to gain control of the Suez Canal. Taking
advantage of the situation created by Egypt's decision of
nationalization of the Suez Canal, Israel joined forces with
Britain and France to invade Egypt. As a result, it occupied
the Sinai Peninsula, seized the Gaza Strip, and Sharm Al
sheikh which guarded the Strait of Tiran and the entrance to
the Gulf of Aqaba. a year letter it withdrew reluctantly
under the combined pressure of the U.N., U.S.A. and the
