    Default Legacy of Jewish extremists. Mass graves of Arab civilians uncovered in Palestine.

    This is atrocious.
    Mass grave uncovered containing dozens of Palestinians killed in 1948 war that founded Israel | Mail Online
    As many as 600 decomposed bodies found in mass pits.
    This land was later stolen and close to 3 quarters of a million people banished.
    On this atrocity, and many others was born the State of Modern Israel.

    Was this not the war where all the surrounding Arab states tried to wipe the new state of Israel off the map.

    Were the people in the graves,in particular, trying to wipe the new state of Israel off the map?

    Dead civilians from their own country. Wonder how they died? Were they just adult men?

    I don't know, and I'm sure you don't either.
    All I know about the period comes from the movie 'exodus ' , but that while a good movie was hardly an even handed display of both sides.

    It says in the mail article that people were being killed through grenades and other means. And that they were collected up over months of fighting and dumped in a mass grave due the ongoing fighting. It's not alleged that there was a massacre anyways.

    We must hope that our Minister for Justice supports the Human Rights of those Bereaved Family's as fervently as he supported Pamela Izevbekhai's.

    In all likelihood they weren't.
    The world is a very puzzling place. If you're not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else's mind.

    I'm sure massacres like this were carried out by the likes of Menachem Begin who traded Jews to the Nazis for his own life.
