THE WAR CRIMINAL
THE CRIMINAL NATION ELECTS A WAR CRIMINAL!
by Rabee' Sahyoun
As the world is witnessing the ascent of Ariel Sharon to the post of prime
minister in Israel, the western media has done a mysterious thing. It has
started to refer to him as a 'dovish general' and a man with 'a tough and
chequered past'. Lest we forget.
Ariel Sharon is a war criminal. His transgressions, including the massacre
of over 60 Palestinian civilians in the village of Qibya in 1953, as
do***ented by Israeli historian Benny Morris, and the massacre of over 2000
Palestinian refugees in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in 1982 in
Israeli-occupied Beirut, where the Kahan Commission in Israel found him
responsible and forced him to resign his post as Defence Minister, are
notorious. Recently, Serbs Radovan Karadzic and Slobodan Milosevic were
indicted for equally brutal crimes by an international war tribunal, as
noted this week by ex-Israeli soldier James Ron in the Los Angeles Times.
Ariel Sharon's crimes though are forgotten, and he is celebrating his
victory, becoming the leader of his country.
In recent weeks, there has been an onslaught of Zionist revisionism in
popular media. Embassy spokespersons and Nobel laureates, from Thomas
Friedman to Elie Wiesel, are systematically regurgitating the Zionist myths
of the 20th century and denying the Palestinian people their rightful place
as the historical inhabitants of Palestine, from the Mediterranean Sea to
the Jordan River and from the Hills of Galilee to the Corals of the Red Sea.
The Zionist media machine is goading in its attempts to pre-empt world
opinion against the notion of Palestinian Right of Return, denying the
responsibility that the people of Israel has to bear for 5.3 million
Palestinian refugees worldwide.
Recently in the Hartford Courant, a Zionist named Melvin Horowitz
re-iterated the myth that the Palestinians fled their homes on their own
accords. Just as the Zionist media machine is practicing selective amnesia
regarding Ariel Sharon's past, they are conveniently forgetting about
Zionist operations Ben Ami, Pitchfork, Shiffon and others that
systematically expelled Palestinians from their homes in 1947-48. Alas, in
an excerpt of Yitzhak Rabin's memoirs, published in the New York Times, on
the 23rd of October 1979, he is quoted in recalling the conquest of Lydda,
after the completion of Plan Dalet, "We walked outside, Ben-Gurion
accompanying us. Allon repeated his question, 'What is to be done with the
Palestinian population?' Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said
'Drive them out!'"
Boldly, Mr. Horowitz also reminds us that the Zionists made the desert bloom
in Palestine. This has been used as a further piece of evidence that the
Palestinian Refugees have no claim to their lands. Tell this to the people
of France, who according French economic historian Paul Masson, were saved
from numerous famines during the 17th and 18th centuries due to imports of
wheat from Palestine. Or better yet, tell this to the Floridian citrus
farmers, just as Henry Gillman, the American consul in Jerusalem, suggested
to them that they could learn from Palestinian grafting techniques in 1856.
The Zionist media spin can keep disseminating its myths, but international
law is unshakeable. In addition to binding UN Resolution 194, which
********ly calls for Israel to allow Palestinians to return to their homes
and receive compensation for their dispossession, many other international
conventions support the Palestinian right of return. Article 13 of the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) provides that 'Everyone has the
right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country'
The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966) reaffirmed
the fundamental rights of people and, in 1976 the U.N. General Assembly
adopted a resolution which, in Article 12, stated: 'Everyone shall be free
to leave any country, including his own ... (and) No one shall be
arbitrarily deprived of the right to enter his own country'. Finally, the
U.N. Commission on Human Rights, emphatically and solemnly declared that
'Everyone is entitled, without distinction of any kind ... to return to his
country; No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality ... as a
means of divesting him of the right to return to his country; no one shall
be denied the right to return to his own country on the ground that he has
no passport or other travel do***ent.'
Today, the citizens of Israel, not including the estimated 4 million
Palestinians under their illegal occupation, have elected a man, Ariel
Sharon, to power who has pledged that not one Palestinian will return to his
Should we expect less from a nation that in the last 20 years has elected
one of the twentieth century's most notorious terrorists, Menachim Begin, to
power? The nation that elected Yitzhak Shamir, the man who ordered the
assassination of Count Bernadotte, of the Swedish royal family, and UN
mediator in Palestine in 1947, to power? The nation that elected Yitzhak
Rabin, the man who pledged to break the bones of every Palestinian youth in
the West Bank and Gaza during the first Intifada, to power?
The nation that elected Binyamin Netanyahu, the man who proclaimed when he
was Deputy Foreign Minister on November 24, 1989, to students at Bar Ilan
University, as reported in the Israeli journal Hotam, "Israel should have
exploited the repression of the demonstrations in China, when world
attention focused on that country, to carry out mass explosions among the
Arabs of the territories", to power?
The nation that elected Ehud Barak, the commando who dressed as a woman and
assassinated a noble Palestinian poet, in 1973 in West Beirut, to power?
The nation that elected Ariel Sharon, war criminal, to power.

Is not, liar. He is a fighter against Islamofascist murderers, such
as the nephew of the INDICTED WWII WAR CRIMINAL Haj Amin El Husseini
who goes under the pseudonym "Yassir Arafat." THe true collaborator of
Adolf Hitler's "Final Solution," the Grand Mufti Haj Amin El Husseini
was in BErlin directing the murder of Balkan JEws by the thousands
planning the construction of a death camp outside of Nablus as soon as
Rommel entered Palestine. Sharon is an exalted slayer of SAND NAZIS
deserve to go into ovens just as they had originally planned to do to
as per their German allies of WWII.
You mean GREAT EXPLOITS...
Benny Morris was a kapo ready to shove Jews in the ovens to save his skin.
by Blessed, wonderful CHRISTIAN Maronite militiamen taking revenge for
mass murders the PLO islamofascists had committed on decent Lebanese
Recently more and more are understanding the true motives of the
who have worked with actual Nazis and neo-Nazis since 1936, and are
understanding Sharon for being the righteous sand-nazi slayer that he
been forced to be. If killing SS murderers is a crime, then Sharon is
a criminal. But if killing SS murderers is an understandable,
then Sharon is a saint.

Occupied Territories means in reality Israeli land occupied by
Islamofascists who oppress all inhabitants of the region
