Tidbits #32

Funny. In the Western developed States, with this lockdown, the argument is: Do we have a moral imperative to continue the financial support of your hairdresser , your dog walker, babysitter, the kid’s piano teacher, your yoga instructor?

Rewilding? The term was popularized in the late 1990s by two American biologists (pdf), who argued that conservation shouldn’t mean just conserving an area of land but bringing back predators that kept the ecosystem functioning in its natural state.

America’s banking giants are fortifying themselves for a potential tsunami of bad loans.
The five biggest US lenders have stashed away $24 billion of loan-loss provisions as of the first quarter, almost five times as much as in the previous period, according to FactSet data.

In States that established social safety net for employment and health.. allowed individualism to reign. But in places without those means, collectivism is often the order of the day.

Lockdown reminded us that “When a poor person fall, we fall together. Survival is a collective exercise”

Should I feel much better? The coronavirus that causes Covid-19 has already been identified, genetically sequenced, and given a name (SARS-CoV-2). And what the next in line SARS-CoV-3 will spread?

An estimated 280,000 US health care workers don’t have papers and they still have to worry about being deported.

Palestinian prisoners in Israel are being subjected to a harsher version of Auschwitz: Let them all die of Covid-19. Let them take all their time to die in their confinement.

Guess why. There were no US school shootings in March. It was the first March without one since 2002.

France King Charles 9 in the 16th century, eldest son of Catherine of Medici, moved the new year from April 1st to January 1st and labeled April 1st, April Fool.

April 1st was the new year in all Middle-East since antiquity. March was the month for celebration to culminate on the first of April.

A new breathing aid device would deliver oxygen to the lungs while cutting the need for ventilators, helping keep patients out of intensive care.

“The combination of uncertainty and danger…feeds an intense desire for certainty, better known to psychologists as the need for cognitive closure,” writes psychologist Arie Kruglanski in The Conversation. “It is the time when authoritative, confident direction is much preferred over flexible, laissez-faire guidance. We need to be told what to do, plain and simple.”

The world’s biggest manufacturer of condoms said its stockpile will last just two more months.

Remember: On this date April 17, Israel bombed a UN compound in Qana (Lebanon) killing 106 civilians who thought they were fleeing to “security”. The US blocked all judicial attempts in their courts for reparation (I was in the US and witnessed a few lawyers valiantly lodging complaints in the names of victims, at no avail)

India’s idle huge rail network trains with carriages having plenty of space could be used for Covid-19 patients. 

And this fat and flatulent Winston Churchill visits the battle field of Zama near Carthage. He wanted to pay his respect to the victory of the Romans in 1942, just as the allies recaptured north Africa. This ultimate of racist claimed that this battle was the beginning of the barbarian western civilization. And culture and civilization was at an end and mankind wasted 2,500 years of sustained growth and progress

Carthage was New York and Shagai combined.
It was the financial and economic power of the Mediterranean Basin
It was the industrial capital of the ancient world.
It had 700,000, most of them were foreign workers and artisan of about 500,000, sort of Dubai
Its building were of 8 floors, nothing comparables then
It could produce in record time scores of ships, for commerce and navy
It had ports almost in every known country where it stored its raw materials and traded with the autochtones.
Tunisia produced as much wheat as Egypt and had the best agricultural experts.

On April 17, French mandated troops over Syria vacated the land forcefully. Since then, French institutions were trained to hate the valiant Syrian people. France had handed to Turkey Syrian lands the size of current Syria.

Africa’s total external debt is $700 billion and its debt service this year alone is $44 billion, so the fear is some of the world’s most under-resourced health systems would suffer with debt repayments being prioritized in the middle of a global pandemic. The World Bank and IMF were early to call for some form of debt relief, perhaps forbearance. China alone loaned $140 bn

It is dawning on me this hypothesis: the air in airplanes and sleeping quarters in ships contributed largely in spreading the Covid-19

Jews in Israel still insist on going to Synagogues: 25% of Coronavirus cases from this routine

According to the newly released data, the most common place to contract COVID-19 in Israel is synagogues, where 24% of all infections to date have occurred, with another 5% contracted in yeshivas, reveals Israel Health minister.

Mustafa Deveci   |28.03.2020

The number of COVID-19 cases in Israel has reached 3,460 and 425 more people are diagnosed with COVID-19, according to the statement by the country’s health ministry.

50 of the patients are in critical condition and 89 have recovered, the statement added.

Until now, COVID-19 claimed the lives of 12 in the country.

As part of measures, all schools have been closed in the country, all meetings in public, open or closed areas with more than 10 people have also been banned.

All trading firms except supermarkets, pharmacies, gas stations and banks have also been closed beginning with March 15.

Tel Aviv also banned the entry of foreign citizens to the country, except for those who have residency in Israel.

After first appearing in Wuhan, China, last December, the novel coronavirus has spread to at least 177 countries and territories, according to data compiled by U.S.-based Johns Hopkins University.

The data shows over 607,900 cases have been reported worldwide since last December, with the death toll above 28,100 and over 132,600 recoveries.

The most amazing Woman: Polish midwife risked her life & delivered 3,000 babies in Auschwitz

 Goran Blazeski

Stanislawa Leszczynska was born on May 8th, 1896, in the Bałuty neighborhood of Lodz, Poland.

She was the oldest of three children of Jan Zambrzycki and his wife Henryka. She completed high school in 1914 and 2 years later she married printer Bronisław Leszczynski.

In 1920, Stanislawa and Bronislaw with their two children Bronisław and Sylwia, moved to Warsaw where she enrolled in the midwife college and completed her studies.

In 1922, they moved back to Lodz where she got a job as a midwife.

There , she gave birth to her second son Stanisław and in 1923 her third son, Henryk was born.

Stanislawa loved her job and was on call day and night, assisting women who delivered their newborns at home, since this had been a usual practice in the past.

She worked in the poorest districts of Lodz and often walked miles to each delivery.

When World War II began, Stanislawa and her husband involved in the Polish resistance movement but eventually, the entire family was caught by the Gestapo in 1943.

Her husband was killed in the Warsaw uprising of 1944, her sons were sent to labor camps in Germany while she and her daughter to Auschwitz, where she spent two years in a non-Jewish sector of the camp.

Stanislawa proclaimed herself as midwife to the camp’s authorities and was relegated to women’s camp maternity ward.

All the newborns of the prisoners in the camp were killed before she arrived in April, 1943.

During her time in Auschwitz, Stanislawa delivered over 3,000 babies.

Half of them were murdered and another thousand died due to the horrific conditions in the camp.

But after 1943, about 500 babies with blonde hair and blue eyes were sent to be raised as Germans, while 30 more survived the camp.

Somehow, she managed to tattoo the children who were about to be adopted by German families hoping that one day they will be reunited with their mothers.

All the 3,000 babies delivered by Stanislawa were born alive, not one single baby was lost during birth. She was called “Mother” by the prisoners.

When World War II was over, Stanislawa returned to her job in Lodz.

All of her children survived the forced labor camps. Stanislawa rarely spoke publicly about her time spent in Auschwitz and never had considered her deeds as heroic or unusual.

She attended an official celebration in 1970 where she met a small group of the surviving babies who had been born in the camp.

Her story is one of the most miraculous accounts from the Holocaust’s history and Stanislawa Leszczynska is being considered for canonization. God bless that woman.

Another story from us about an amazing woman: Helen learned five different languages & she was the first deaf-blind person to receive BA degree

Born in Israel before I knew it is Palestine: Gilad Atzmo

By Whatsupic with 7sabah

I was born in Israel and it was many years before I realized that Israel was Palestine. I was relatively patriotic.

I was looking forward to serving in the army and then I grasped that there was little truth in the Jewish historical narrative.

I then gathered that I was living on someone else’s land.

At the same time I discovered the saxophone.  By the age of 30, I left Israel and never went back.

Q: There is some kind of rebellion in your music; how do you explain this?

A:  My music can be very soft and reflective. Sometimes it is very funny and occasionally it is furious. There are too many reasons to be angry.

I’m far from happy when I see Israel flattening Gaza. I’m furious when I find out 80% of British conservative MPs are ‘friends of Israel.’

I’m angry when I find out the Jewish lobby is pushing America into another World War and instead of becoming violent, sometimes I use music as a channel to express my anger.

Q: What type of music is close to your music in the world?

A: It’s very simple. I’m a jazz artist, a Bebop player. But I’m inspired by near east music whether it is Arabic, Turkish or Greek. I find my own way to fuse the Arabic Mawwal with John Coltrane…

Q: What do you think of the social and political state of Turkey?

A: Listen, I’m really against any forms of interventionism, so I’m definitely not the right person to judge the situation here. I can only talk about my impression, and it’s not an academic observation.

I’m touring all over the world and I see a lot of sadness. I see impoverished countries, people with no work, with no prospect of production.

I see youngsters who are third generation poor and in their deserted main street they don’t eat their own food anymore, they instead eat McDonalds, Burger King, Coca Cola, Starbucks.

And I’m here in Turkey and see a lot of people on the streets, and I see fish from your sea, and tomatoes from your fields, and I see a lot of people working in the restaurants that have Turkish names and don’t even offer a menu in English, and it makes me happy for you.

You have managed to maintain your authenticity and culture. This is a great victory. You are so lucky that Islamophobic Europeans didn’t accept you in the EU. Your country is now a superpower.

Q: You were born in Israel but you are against Israeli occupation and its politics. You are living in the West, how do you cope?

A: Let me tell you something and it is crucial. In my entire career, I have never been subject to abuse by the British government, never been subject to abuse by the American government. Although the infamous Alan Dershowitz, who is now implicated in a huge sex scandal with minors, labelled me ‘as the number one enemy of the Jewish people,’ I’ve never been subject to direct abuse by the Israeli government.

Even the NSA doesn’t harass me. The only people who stalk me continuously are the Jewish left and the Guardian newspaper.

I can say that it’s not a problem but I came to the realization that the biggest enemy of our elementary freedoms are the progressives and I’ll explain why.

In the West and maybe in Turkey as well, we have issues with political correctness.

What is political correctness? Political correctness is politics that doesn’t allow political opposition. But this is clearly the definition we associate with dictatorship.

But political correctness is far worse than dictatorship. Why? Because in the case of dictatorship you experience an opposition to a regime that is distinct from you, but in the case of political correctness it is you who silence yourself.

Political Correctness is a form of self-censorship. The Jewish left and the progressives made us into a collective of impotents. Our task is to move on and to erect our resistance against this cancerous ideology.

Q: Can we separate Judaism from Zionism?

A: No. Israel isn’t called the ‘Zionist State,’ it defines itself as the ‘Jewish State.’ The parties in the government are called “Israel Our Home” and the “Jewish Home” not the “Zionist Home”*.

Now the Israeli cabinet has approved the National Bill that defines Israel as the Jewish state not the Zionist state. Zionism from an Israeli perspective died in 1948. Zionism was a promise to erect a Jewish state in Zion (Palestine).

Once Israel was established, Zionism was finished with its role.

The only people who maintain the Zionist nonsense are the Jewish left because they want to differentiate between Jewishness and Zionism.  This is why they call Israel colonialism.

But Israel is not colonialism. Colonialism is a clear exchange between a mother state and a settler state. Israel is a settler state, yet there is no Jewish mother state. This is why they call it apartheid.

Israel in not apartheid: Apartheid is a racist system of exploitation. But Israel doesn’t want to exploit the Palestinians, it wants them gone.

Israel is a Hitlerian ethnic cleansing model.

The Left uses the terms ‘Colonialism’, ‘Zionism’, and ‘Apartheid’ in an attempt to divert attention from the ‘J’ word.

For solidarity with Palestine to be meaningful, we have to de-Judify our terminology. Not to kick out the Jews, but to prevent Jewish interests from defining the boundaries of the discussion.

Q: Can we see Israel and Palestine as two states?

A: No.

Q: Will the Palestinians be able to return to their county?

A: This is what they are fighting for. And any person who doesn’t accept the right of return is not a genuine supporter.

Q: What do you think about what Ahmadinejad said about the Holocaust?

A: I agree 100% with everything Ahmadinejad said about the Holocaust. Ahmadinejad basically said that Holocaust must be treated as a historical chapter.

At the moment it is treated as a religion. And if it is a religion I want to maintain my right to be an atheist. In contemporary Judified reality it is OK not to believe in God but if you don’t believe in Auschwitz you will be penalised and severely. I don’t accept it.

Q: What does the US gain from supporting Israel?

A: We cannot think of America as an independent entity anymore. America’s political system is a Jewish occupied zone.

America, Britain, France, [and generally] the West woke up one morning to realize that there was a loop hole in their legal system that facilitated the ability of invasive foreign lobbies such as AIPAC, CFI, CRIF to interfere with their foreign affairs.

America has sacrificed its foreign interests on the Jewish alter. It is a disaster. But history teaches us that this Jewish political impunity always comes to an end in a totally tragic circumstance.

Q: Do you agree that a Holocaust is happening in Gaza?

A: I don’t know what the Holocaust is anymore. I’m like Ahmadinejad in that regard.

When I was a kid they taught me that the Nazis made soap out of Jews. And then I grew up and realized it was all a fantasy.

They taught me that the Arabs were going to throw us into the sea. And when I was mature enough to learn the history on my own I realized that it was actually the Jews who threw Palestinians into the sea.

Then I realized that Jews (like everyone else) tend to project their cultural symptoms on others. The Jews are fearful of the Palestinians because the Jews witness their army engaged in murderous activity.

They must believe the Palestinians are as murderous as the IDF happens to be.

I don’t want to talk in terms of the Holocaust because it is too Jewish. I don’t want to compare Israel with Nazism because Israel is bad enough.

From some perspectives Israel is worse than Nazism (Israel is a Jewish democracy it implies a collective responsibility).

When I compare Israel with Nazism I reaffirm the Holocaust religion and sustain the primacy of Jewish suffering.

We have to establish a new discourse where Israelis are the worst enemy of humanity and the Palestinians are the ultimate sufferers. Auschwitz was indeed bad, but not as bad as Gaza.

 Q: Iran is not after nuclear arms the whole world knows that. How do you explain the fuss around the Iranian nuclear project?

A: I have no problem with Iranian nuclear arms. I want Iran to have a bomb.

Just One Iranian bomb will bring peace to the region. Because all this mess in the Middle Ease caused by Israel and America is because they know they can kill with impunity and endlessly.

And my problem with the Islam Shia sect is that they are too nice. They really don’t want to bomb anyone. An atomic bomb is Haram they say.

Q: What is your opinion about Iran’s role in the Middle East?

A: Iran is the most beautiful political power. It supports the Palestinians. It supports the resistance. Iran has developed very strong industry. This country that was a client state of America 34 years ago now produces submarines, airplanes, drones, very strong computers. It is beautiful.

Q: Obama is the first black president of America but statistics show scores of black people are shot dead every year. How do you analyze this contradiction?

A: We like to think in terms of racial division because this is the heritage of the left, but it is wrong. In the west and in the last 50 years there has been a collapse of manufacturing partially because of automation, machinery, and computerization but also because Milton Friedman taught us that is better to be a service economy.

The meaning of it in America, Britain, France, etc. is that we don’t need working people. The people who used to be working class are now workless class, and they are doomed to poverty with no hope, they are called under-class.

As things stand, existing jobs demand very high cognitive ability (very high I.Q.) such as engineers, financiers, bankers, PRs. This group of privileged people is what I call the ‘cognitive elite,’ and they are few in number.

We live in a society where we witness the under-class growing rapidly and a small cognitive elite maintaining its power. Obama is well within the cognitive elite and not because he is black, but because he is clever and he clearly found his way to the top.

When it comes to the under-class we realize that there are a lot of immigrants including many Hispanics and Blacks. They are the primary sufferers of the new cruel, merciless division not between the rich and the poor but between the able and the less able.

It is very devastating.  This is why Turkey is so important. You manage your economy and currency in a manner that facilitates manufacturing.

Read the interview in Turkish on 7sabah.

 *The Zionist Home party was formed a month after this interview was conducted.

Note: Most revealing, clear and bold position.

To Jewish friends: “I waited for you to inquire about my family in Gaza”
And Visiting Auschwitz and Dachau.
Lots of blood has been spilled in your name and for your privilege.
Nazi dehumanized the Jews. Zionist Israel dehumanized the Palestinians.

To my Jewish friend (you know who you are) I waited for you to inquire about my family…you didn’t.
Not even a private message, not a phone call.
I checked your Facebook page, wow…not one post about the massacres in Gaza.
Some dinner party shots, something about ISIS and Syria but nothing about Gaza.
Even though, it has been bombed for three weeks IN YOUR NAME. I waited for you to ask how I was coping, you didn’t. I cope better on some days than others.
I try to keep busy and I only sleep when I crash.
My grandfather’s house was partly bombed, but like Gaza it is still standing…for now.
Our land was destroyed…lots of new trees gone, old trees gone, but who cares about trees when lives are shattered. I waited for you to ask, but you didn’t.
My cousins spent the night on the eve of Eid huddled with their children under the kitchen sink as three bombs were dropped from an F16 over the apartment building they were seeking shelter in.
They ‘survived’ although that word is open for interpretation.
Over two thousand people killed mostly civilians …. entire neighbourhoods demolished bombed… but you didn’t ask.
All I can say is next time you visit Israel and enjoy yourself think of this: lots of blood has been spilled in your name and for your privilege.

Yasir Qadhi posted on FB this August 19, 2014

In 2010, I visited the Nazi concentration camps of Auschwitz and Dachau, and saw first hand how Hitler and his Reich attempted to exterminate all those who opposed them (Jews, socialists, gypsies, etc.).

I was extremely fortunate to meet some of the last surviving Jewish prisoners of Auschwitz, and was mesmerized by their harrowing tales.

They told us how the Nazis had dehumanized the Jews so that it was then possible to commit acts of genocide against them.

I found these survivors to be brave and fearless, and I always felt that they would not support the current policies of Israel against the Palestinians.

In a previous posting a few weeks ago, I mentioned how Israel is following some of the very same tactics that Nazi Germany did, in dehumanizing Palestinians.

I was extremely elated to read, therefore, that over 300 Holocaust survivors from around the world have signed a petition AGAINST Israel, saying:

“We are alarmed by the extreme, racist dehumanization of Palestinians in Israeli society, which has reached a fever-pitch. In Israel, politicians and pundits in The Times of Israel and The Jerusalem Post have called openly for genocide of Palestinians and right-wing Israelis are adopting Neo-Nazi insignia….“Never again” must mean NEVER AGAIN FOR ANYONE!”

Not surprisingly, this letter is not receiving as much coverage as it deserves.

Lastly, Muslims, realize that ‘Jews’ are NOT your enemy – Zionism is.

These are Jewish survivors criticizing Israel, and their voice is the most effective imaginable in such criticism.

Bigotry and indolence: What a miserable couple

Apparently, Western Europeans and Jews of  “noble classes” were sent to Buchenwald, whereas Eastern Europeans, the gypsies, and the poorer Jews from the ghettos and shtetl were shipped to the Polish concentration camp of Auschwitz.  Many Jews in Auschwitz were directed to gas chambers while the prisoners in Buchenwald mostly died of famine, diseases, and poor health.  Prisoners in Buchenwald had a higher probability of surviving and returned from the camps in the shape of skeletal.  The Zionist movement named the Shoah to mean only the returning Jews from Nazi camps.

The Western media would like to repeat that “Arabs” (always lumped together regardless of States or religions or locations) are blind to the Shoah.  First, no Jews in “Arab” lands were sent to concentration camps in order for them to see returning Jews from the Shoah.

Second, the few returning Jews who immigrated to Palestine were isolated in agricultural collectivities or members of terrorist Zionist groups such as the Irgun, Stern, or the Haganah.  The returning Jews were terrorizing and harassing Palestinians in their towns and villages and massacring all of them, children and women.  The only returning Jews that the Palestinians might have seen were wearing guns and demolishing their homes without warning, the random violence tactics of terror organizations.

Third, the “Arabs” were prisoners in their own Ottoman caste system and suffered isolation and ignorance for over five centuries.  They barely saw the next town communities!  The Western nation governments and colonial powers never raised any monument for the suffering Arab and Palestinian Shoah, or cared to establishing a homeland for them.

They say that Zionism encourages Jews to be blinded by the Shoah.  Most probably, it is the Western media and governments doing their best to demonstrate outrageous penitence by supporting all kinds of horrible activities against human rights by the Israeli State.

Apartheid policies of Israel against Palestinians (the other miserable face of the Shoah)  are not deemed that serious to be condemned at the UN or economic,  financial, and military embargoes levied against Israel.  The new generations of Jews in Israel are tired of constant reminders of the holocaust and succumbing to another one.  They want out of the three years military service and killing as many Palestinians at point-blank.

In 1982, Lebanon was suffering a terrible civil war.  Lebanese killing one another, Palestinians killing one another and Syria had invaded Lebanon at the urge of the US.  And here you have Israel Menahem Begin PM proclaiming: “Israel must invade Lebanon or suffer another Auschwitz.”  What?  What Auschwitz had to do with a preemptive war that permitted Israel to occupying South Lebanon for 25 years?  Israel frequently deliver the stupidest reasons for invading neighboring  “Arab” States.

Zionism insists that “The Shoah is our pain and our affair; a secret that nobody else can comprehend”.  What, Armenians cannot comprehend their plight and shouldn’t have their own “secret”? What about the Slaves, the Gypsies, the homosexuals and the many minorities that died in Nazi concentration camps?  What about the current holocaust in Rwanda, Congo, Pakistan, Kosovo, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Palestine, and Lebanon?

Regis Debray should revise a long paragraph that sounds infamous to the Palestinians.  He wrote: “You see pictures of a Palestinian child getting out of a cave with arms raised; an old decrepit man on the ground being kicked by Israeli soldiers; an old woman in tattered cloth with joined hands imploring an Israeli soldier (to releasing her kid or letting her cross a barrier to go to a hospital)… The difference is that all these Palestinians are not going to any gas chambers.  They will serve ten years of prison without any due judicial procedures, they will get out crippled and handicapped, but they are not sent to gas chambers”

This is how Western writers have to apologize for the Shoah and their devoid meaning of penitence.

The British and French mandated powers in the Middle-East, along with their protegé the Zionist movement, were the initiator of random violence, of creating terror organizations, and planning and executing countless genocides, years before Nazi Germany came to power and emulated and fine-tuned their programs of crimes against humanity.

Fact is, Nazi Germany learned and assimilated the previous methods of humiliating indigenous people, applied by the British, French, and Zionist criminal organizations in Palestine and Syria. Fact is, Nazi Germany applied the racist check-list administered by the US to the immigrants, flocking to the land of “The Free”.

Do you remember the carpet bombing of Dresden in Germany?  Over 150,000 German civilians were burned carbonized by tons of phosphorous bombs.  Dresden had no military headquarters, no military factories, no industries…and it was destroyed to the ground.

Do you remember the carpet bombing in Viet Nam, Beirut, Gaza, Iraq…? Israel is still using phosphorous bombs in Lebanon and recently in Gaza (2008), as well as cluster bombs, 4 million of them peppered in south Lebanon in 2006…

They were the Masters of ignominious activities and still are.  The western powers and Israel may frequently try hard to sweep under the carpet their consistent tendency for criminal activities against the developing people, through intermediaries and mercenaries.  They are still funding, training, and planning for random violence through factions of religious extremists and racist mercenaries.

The citizens of the Free World are making the effort to going beyond indolence and bigotry to confronting the sustained efforts of the colonial mentality of apartheid. The citizens of the emerging Free World don’t want anything to do with humiliating the developing people to the altar of the vested interests of the 1% richest classes…

Reactions to the genocide in the Sabra and Chatila camps, (June 21, 2009)

I am translating from French sections of a book published by a Jewish author, in my own style.

For three nights and two days the genocide went on in the Palestinian camps of Sabra and Chatila on the outskirts of Beirut.  It started at 5 p.m. on Wednesday of September 16 to Saturday 1982 at 10 a.m.  Of the 20 thousands refugees, more than 4,000 have been declared missing and dead; a third of these victims were Lebanese citizens living in the camps.  Less than 1,500 dead have been identified by relatives; the remaining ones had been decomposing for two days and over two thousands have been taken in trucks to Israel, never to reappear.

Saturday, September 18, 1982; Israel’s New Year

By 11 a.m., the outside world of the cordoned off camps by the Israeli army is starting to witness the magnitude of human disaster. The terrorized civilian Palestinian refugees are roaming like ghosts among the cadavers to recognize the lost ones.  All the Palestinian fighting forces had been vacated to Tunisia by the US and French ships a while ago.

By noon, the international press, radio and television reporters are flooding toward the camps. The Washington Post published “Houses were bulldozed over entire families. Cadavers are piled up as dead dolls.  Perforated walls account for lining up killing.  A baby in diaper had his skull crushed. Each alley tells its own story of savage massacre. A woman is dead by a bullet shot at her bosom.”

The ambassador to France Paul-Marc Henri is on location.  During the invasion of Lebanon by Israel in 1982 the UNICEF accounted that for every fallen resistance fighter, 10 babies were dead; but in the two camps the terrorist militias targeted specifically the babies and kids.  Among the piles of cadavers the militias inserted grenades ready to explode as survivors search for their relatives.  Members of body could be distinguished showing out of quickly and freshly dug mass graves.

Foreign journalists start counting the victims, everyone for himself; one journalist counted 80 and then vomited; another counted 150 in just one pack of houses.  Many victims have been dead since Thursday, September 16; refugees have been clamoring even then that the militias were cutting throats and slaughtering everyone they find on their way.

On the walls you can read the militias graffiti “Tony passed by here”; “God, Homeland, and Family (the slogan of the Kataeb, Phalangist militias)”; “The forces of Baabdat (a town in the Metn district)”; and “They are all fucked up”.  A mother was saying “Only those who could run fast were saved”.  The journalists are shown the nearby headquarters of the Israeli army. The Israeli soldiers are not answering questions of reporters; they received orders to say “We had no idea”.

A Phalangist militia is pretty proud of his actions and replies to an American reporter “For years we were waiting for the opportunity of entering the Palestinian camps in West Beirut. The Israeli army selected us because we are far better in the house to house operations.”

Israeli General Amir Drori orders the Israeli soldiers not to enter the camps for any pretext for fear of confirming the strong suspicion that they indeed had participated in the genocide. The Jews in the USA are feeling sick and ashamed.  President Reagan announced “Israel has justified entering West Beirut to avoid blood shedding and these kinds of tragedies”  An Israeli journalist retorted that “those tragedies took place because the USA gave us the green light to invade Lebanon and progress toward Beirut”.

The Lebanese officials have many times expressed their concerns to special envoy Philip Habib and his Deputy Morris Draper of the consequences of leaving the Palestinians unarmed within their camps.  An American diplomat in Tel Aviv proclaimed to the daily Haaretz “The Palestinian Organization and the State of Lebanon had confidence in the USA engagements; but the US displaced Lebanon’s confidence to Israel.  We realized our grave error too late”

In the mean time, the Israeli army is resuming its search and destroys activities in West Beirut, and rounding up thousand of Lebanese civilians for questioning and investigation in a location close to the Sport City.

Sunday, September 19, 1982; “Goys kill goys; then they accuse the Jews” said Begin.

The stench of pestiferous odors is polluting vast areas extending to four hundred yards around the limits of the two camps. Many of the decomposing bodies have been in the torrid sun since Thursday.  The Lebanese army is depositing cadavers at the entrance of Chatila camp by a large ditch. Red Cross’ ambulances are bringing a new load of victims.  A pregnant woman is searching among the bodies for her husband or any member of her family. Frequently, horrible screams disturb this climate of dazed zombies: someone has recognized a dead relative. Then, the identified victim is bagged in a sac of nylon to be buried decently by the remaining family members (around 1,200 victims) or simply taken to a specific ditch. Most of the time, entire families of over 10 members are survived by a single survivor who is left flapping in complete uncertainty for a tomorrow.

By night the remaining refugees prefer to sleep far from camps: they are under shock, terrorized, and need a place with odors different of what they have smelled for days.  Coordination among o the 11 disparate organizations are non-existent. The task of searching for survivors amid the 200 demolished houses is slow and hopeless.

The agency France-Press estimated on September 23 the number of vanished individuals at more than 2,000: they were taken out by truck loads during the genocide.  The Israeli government never divulged the status of the disappeared Palestinians who were supposed to be taken prisoners and handed over to the Israeli army.  An Israeli correspondent to the daily Maariv wrote “I have never witnessed such silence of our soldiers during the entire war”.

In the meantime, the Israeli army is resuming its search and destroys activities in West Beirut.  Thousands more of Lebanese are taken to questioning and investigation.

In the evening, around one thousand militants and intellectuals of “Peace Now” are demonstrating in Jerusalem in front of the residence of Began PM chanting slogans “Begin terrorist”, “Begin assassin”, “Beirut=Deir Yassine of 1982”, “Down with Sharon, the butcher of Kibya (a village in Jordan)”.  Another demonstration of Israelis in Tel Aviv is brutally dispersed by the police; a tract is distributed stating “Begin, Sharon, and Eytan are totally responsible for the massacre of thousands of babies, women, and elderly Palestinian civilians”

At 10 p.m. The Israeli cabinet met in extraordinary session: the main topic is NOT what happened in Sabra and Chatila.  Begin dispatched the entire affair as “Goys kill goys; then they accuse the Jews”.  Minister Itzhak Berman demands the constitution of a commission to investigate the massacre.  Begin replies “Such a commission would be considered by world community as confession of Israel’s responsibility”.  Begin orders that a full-page be published in both the New York Times and the Washington Post blaming only the Phalangists of the massacre; this ad announcement is to cost $54,000.

Television news all around the world are diffusing scenes of the carnage. The American journalist George Weil associate this massacre to what happened in Baby-Yar during Nazi occupation of Ukraine when Nazi allowed local Ukrainians to massacre thousands of Jews.

Monday, September 20; (War crime in Beirut)

Units of the Lebanese army (1,500 soldiers) cordoned off the two camps.  At the entrance of Chatila more than 100 corps are decomposing by two ditches.  The bodies are descended and then covered by lime. A young Palestinian tells a journalist “we will no longer put our confidence in the promises of others.  We will secure by arms our own destiny.”  Once, a truck carrying Lebanese army soldiers sent people fleeing north in horror and screaming “The militias of Saad Haddad are coming back”.

Israel resumed arresting 1,500 Lebanese citizens; they are emptying the rich library of the PLO and its center for research that was created in 1964; they carried away very old collection of dailies published during the British mandate.

West Beirut has not been receiving any food supply for 5 days and the electricity is still cut off and there is no potable water. Even the American Hospital is short on private utility because there is no mazout.

The main title of the daily Haaretz is “War Crime in Beirut”; it demands that Sharon and Eytan be destituted if Israel is to raise its head and look straight at people. The editorial of the daily Davar stated: “It very difficult to be Israelite. We have no recourse to wash our hands of this infamy.  The perpetrators of Deir Yassine (Begin PM) and of Kibya (Sharon) compromise again the people. The government has led the State to moral bankruptcy.” Israel Zamir pronounced “Pogrom is no longer exclusive to Jews. Begin and Sharon have extended it to other ethnic groups”. 

Amos Kennan writes: “Mr. Begin, you have sold without any benefice millions of Jewish babies who died in Auschwitz”.  Joseph Bourg writes: “Begin and Sharon let in hungry lions in the arena. Lions ate the people. Lions are the culprit! They are the ones who killed and maimed, aren’t they?!”  A poll taken in Israel demonstrates that 60% of Israelis assign the responsibility to their government; 80% consider that the war in Lebanon damaged Israel’s standing”

Shimon Peres talks in the Knesset: “Sharon, when the Syrian were bombarding Zahleh on May 1981 you declared that the Christians are suffering the same massacres as the Jews in 1940”.  Sharon replies to Shimon Peres: “When you were Defense Minister you sent Israeli officers to orchestrate the sacking of the Palestinian camp of Tel Zaatar (in the Christian district)”.

On September 25, 400,000 demonstrated in Tel Aviv demanding a commission of investigation; Begin bowed down to that demand on September 28.  The Kahana commission reported a toned down version for the public; the army high officers and Sharon were obliged to step down. The Israeli army withdrew from Beirut by September 29; Multinational Forces will take positions by the camps; they were there before Israel entered Beirut and they vacated their positions for the genocide plan to be executed.

Note: The same kind of genocide took place in the camp of Jenine in the West bank in 2002 and by Sharon also; he was then Prime Minister. The US pressured the UN not to investigate.  The US feared that the world community will realize that Sabra and Chatila camps genocide were not isolated cases but a patter of the tandem Begin-Sharon.  Over one thousand billions dollars were lavished on the State of Israel since 1948 in order to perpetrate the kinds of State horrors that Zionists erect Holocaust monuments so that humanity “never forgets”.   If I want to believe in Hell it is simply because it is fair for those terrorists who were never been brought to court of justice.
