    Deir Yassin is famous for one reason and one reason only, namely: It is the only "massacre of civilians" that can be attributed to Jews. And anything else that could possible come close to indiscriminate murder of civilians will also have its own name. That this massacre has grown over the years to mythical proportions is another matter. Numbers killed have grown steadily over time to figures which are obviously incorrect. A simple study of British Mandate records will show how many people lived in this very small village and this will at least set a ceiling on the maximum number of civilians that could have been murdered. Deir Yassin actually is an example of the fact that Jews do not behave as barbarians. It is a total anomaly within Jewish history. The reason that massacres of Arabs by other Arabs have no names and are not remembered is because there are so many and they happen so often that they have become common place. I wonder whether any of the current massacres in Sudan, Algeria that dwarf anything that could have happened at Deir Yassin etc will ever get a mention. I think we know the answer to that question.
