I really cannot abide when arabs refer to the Deir Yassin events as a 'massacre'. This happens frequently in arab culture, attempts to distort historical facts to make arabs seem like poor innocent victims when in fact they are usually the instigators and the aggressors. Arabs have been wildly successful in portraying themselves as maligned victims, knowing that westerners will respond predictably to defend them from the 'evil'. Never mind that they get away with passing themselves off as the persecuted minority when they are in fact over 1.3 Billion in number (as opposed to Jews who are less than 15 million).

There are countless examples of this, waging PR war on Israel: fabricating quoted 'eye witness' accounts (who all mysteriously have the same last name); fabricating and photoshopping photos (the infamous case of the poor dead baby in the Lebanon bombing who was positioned in multiple locations for photo ops; or the crying woman with multiple backgrounds; footage of people being carted off in stretchers only to accidently fall out after the photo is taken and climb back in. And the most infamous of all, the homhamed al Dura story, which was finally proven to be a total scam, just in the past few months in Paris, where France 2 came clean with their extra footage, showing the boy moving after he apparently died.

If anyone would like proof of these factual examples, please feel free to ask, or google them.

Here is the truth about Deir Yassin Amin:
