As can clearly be seen from this article, which appeared about five months before 9-11, there is no shortage of Muslims that the Jews seem to enjoy in killing. As one can see, virtually almost all of the Palestinian dead were civilians, whereas the dead Jews were mainly serving in the Israeli Army or were settlers stealing land that belonged to the native Palestinians.
Jewish Terrorists Go on Rampage in Gaza
Copyright Joe Vialls, Apr 2001
The body count in Palestine now stands at 478, with only 28 of these Jews. The balance of the huge figure amassed since last September is comprised of Palestinians, though even here the figure fails to truly reflect the huge imbalance between gun and tank-toting Jews, and largely unarmed Palestinians deliberately trapped by “God’s Chosen People” in enclaves, like rabbits waiting for execution. The Nazis were absolute gentlemen by comparison with this crazed bunch of power hungry butchers. Report below is from Phil Reeves in Palestine:-
MURDER, ASSASSINATION AND BEATINGS:
THE CHILLING TACTICS USED TO KEEP CONTROL OF AN OCCUPIED CITY
By Phil Reeves in Hebron
butcher, about how his father died. He gestures silently at the deep scars in the walls, gouged out by the Israeli armour-piercing machine-gun bullets that smashed through the living room window, killing his father as he was answering the phone.
But Mr Abu Sneiheh also believes he understands why. Ultimately, he argues, the violence was because of Jewish settlers who continue to live in the heart of his home city of Hebron. Without them, there would be no need for the presence of the Israeli army among many thousands of Arabs.
And without the army or so he believes there would be no nightly fire-fights no shelling by Israeli tanks of Arab homes, no deaths and daily maimings in the riot zones, no giant mounds of earth sealing off the city’s entry roads. Hebron, al-Khalil in Arabic, is the only large Palestinian city in the occupied territories where the Israeli military still exercises direct daily control over a substantial part of the population. Almost all of the 120,000 population are Palestinians. But 500 are Jewish settlers, stubbornly living in the deepest part of occupied territory, largely because they consider the city to be sacred to Judaism as well as Islam and Christianity as the burial site of the biblical patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Several thousand more Israeli settlers live just outside the city, in heavily guarded communities .
Sectarian relations have always been acutely sensitive in Hebron, but since the start of the Palestinian intifada the city has become one of the worst battlefields. There are fears that an explosion is imminent, detonated by six months of bloodshed that has seen human rights abuses on a massive scale, from the killing and maiming of unarmed Arabs by the Israeli army and the fatal attacks on Jewish civilians by Palestinian gunmen, to the daily misery of punitive blockades and curfews.
Hebron, which sits in a basin 20 miles south of Jerusalem, has long been a cauldron. It was here in 1929 that 67 Jews were massacred by Arabs. Sixty-five years later, Baruch Goldstein, a Jewish-American settler, shot dead 29 Muslims while they were at prayer. Signs are accruing that the lid could now be about to blow off the place anew, with results that will dwarf the relentless violence of the past six months in the Middle East. One Western observer said: “It will be terrible. It is not a question of whether … It is a question of when.”
The severity of the crisis, and the scale of the brutality feeding it, is documented in an 82-page report published by Human Rights Watch. Many human rights organisations have been vocal throughout the intifada, but none has provided such depth and detail. Their researchers spent five weeks in the city in November last year and in February conducting 180 interviews, which provide a full inventory of the horrors of the conflict.
Abuses are found on both sides Palestinian gunmen are found to have violated international law by deliberately selecting and killing Israeli civilians but the bulk of the blame is laid at the door of the Israeli army and the Jewish settlers whom it defends. Its publication follows a period in which Hebron seemed to be sliding steadily towards the abyss. On 26 March, there was a furore in Israel after a Palestinian sniper shot dead Shalhavet Pass, the 10-month-old daughter of Jewish settlers, blasting her through the head in front of a city-centre Israeli settlement. The Israeli army, stationed on the surrounding hills and the rooftops of Palestinian homes, responded by firing tank shells and machine- gun bullets into the Arab neighbourhoods from where the fatal shot was fired, raising Palestinian fears that Israel was planning to reoccupy the area.
Jewish settlers have rampaged through the streets, attacking Palestinian property and in one case destroying a Palestinian shop with a pipe bomb. And the 30,000 Palestinians who live in the part of Hebron under Israeli rule, the so-called H2 zone, have been confined to their homes under military curfew, unable to send children to school, to open shops, or to go to work.
The picture that emerges from the Human Rights Watch report is especially chilling. Researchers found evidence that Israel’s soldiers have killed unarmed people who pose no serious threat, fired machine-guns indiscriminately into densely populated Arab areas, assassinated suspected enemies, stood idly by as Jewish settlers attacked Palestinians and others, routinely beat up Palestinians and shot at Arab vehicles on “closed roads”. The report provides a disturbing list of examples of especially suspicious attacks by the Israel Defence Forces (IDF), and demands that they be investigated.
These include two civilians who were killed when the Israeli army launched
an “apparently unprovoked attack” on a communal farm operated by an Islamic
charity; a 31-year-old Palestinian man shot and killed by an Israeli soldier after the soldier had started an argument by throwing rocks at his car; another youth, aged 18, who was killed by a sniper while unloading goods; a 24-year-old man, killed while driving home with his family and a 14-year-old who was killed, “apparently in retaliation for hitting a soldier with a rock earlier in the day”.
It also states that many of the people killed or wounded by Israeli troops
near riot zones were unarmed bystanders. There was, for example, 18-year-old
Arij al-Jabali who was shot in the stairway of her home on the day she was due to introduce her boyfriend to her family. In another particularly shocking instance, Israeli soldiers shot dead a 22-year-old Palestinian as he was standing on his roof, at least 200 metres from the trouble spot. Nor, it says, has the IDF made any serious effort to stop frequent attacks on Palestinian civilians by Jewish settlers. Settlers have attacked many Arab homes in Hebron’s Old City, often directly under the eyes of IDF soldiers, and have regularly beaten, shot at and stoned Palestinians.
There is no convincing evidence of the pro-Israel lobby’s long-standing
claim that Palestinians are systematically coercing children into the riot zone for use by gunmen as human shields. But Human Rights Watch listed two incidents in which Palestinian gunmen fired at the Israeli army from amid stone-throwers, putting the unarmed demonstrators in serious danger of return fire. The group’s response to its findings are blunt and resoundingly true. Hanny Megally, a senior official, said: “Hebron is a microcosm of the devastating impact of the Israeli- Palestinian conflict on civilians. These widespread human rights abuses cannot be deferred to future negotiations.”
