Israel is always the "victim"

Massacre that marred "birth" of Israel



Kfar Etzion


 

Peter Beaumont writes an article, seeking to perpetuate the "Israelis are the victims" myth that has been repeated by countless Israel supporters since 1948.
The only incident mentioned is the one concerning Kfar Etzion on the 13th/14th May 1948.
In such a biased and provocative piece of journalistic propaganda, there is of course, no mention of the events at Deir Yassin on 9th April 1948, some weeks before.


Deir Yassin


Belmont's headline could be applied equally to both events, but when it comes to "analysing" the middle east, Israel can do nothing wrong and is always the victim.
