On the ninth of April 1948, the Zionist gangs committed a terrifying massacre in Deir Yassin which left more than 630 victims of Palestinian old men and women, young men and children.
When the Zionist gangs stormed this village, they did not distinguish between the residents regardless of their age. They were only concerned with making a massacre killing as many Palestinians as possible in order to plant terror in the hearts of other Palestinians and make Deir Yassin the scarecrow that terrifies the Palestinians and cripples their ability to fight to force them out.
It is clear that the reasons behind the success of the Zionist gangs in committing the massacre and achieving part of its goals can be summarized as follows:
The bloody fascist trend that characterizes the Zionist project and the leaders’ belief that their political goals cannot be achieved except by changing Palestine into a quagmire of blood, because the Zionist project is aggressive and bloody in principle, aiming at eradicating and Palestinian people in order to be replaced by the gangs of Jewish immigrants.
The imbalance of power was in favor of the Zionist gangs who were heavily armed. The Zionist leadership succeeded in preparing for its war against the Palestinian people, waiting for the suitable historical moment to come.
With the declaration of the British colonial authorities that they intend to withdraw from Palestine on 4/5/1948, the Zionist leadership saw this declaration a suitable opportunity to wage an open war against the Palestinians, making use of its ability to bring weapons, either by smuggling the weapons to Palestine under the sight of the British occupation authorities, or by receiving them from the British troops before their departure from Palestine.
In return, the Palestinian political leaderships did not exert the required effort to solve the problem of arming the Palestinian people who resorted to alternative solutions by self-reliance in purchasing the simple available weapons, but this did not make a military structure. So, the Zionist gangs overcame the Palestinians.
Reports gave larger numbers about the massacre than the real ones in order to intimidate the Palestinians and drive them to escape lest they should face a similar fate of the people of Deir Yassin. Yet, the Palestinians fought in other villages until their ammunitions ran out.
Sixty four years have passed since the massacre, but its perpetrators have not been punished so far, although they are well-known, and although they boast of it.
Ignoring this crime by the international community and not bringing its perpetrators to justice encourages the Zionist enemy to commit more crimes and similar massacres.
I suggest the establishment of an unofficial international court consisting of peace-loving global forces with permanent sessions to re-raise the Palestinian history and the history of the Zionist massacres to prosecute its perpetrators for what they had done.
It is true that this court will not succeed in arresting the criminals and putting them in jail, but it will succeed in naming the criminals and letting the world know them… at this step, the world might wake up.
