    As a zionist, you consider Deir Yaseen as a "war tragedy". Yet many people observe it as a intentional move on the part of the same program of elimination of the Palestinian people that continues today. On April 9, 1948, The zionist terrorist groups Irgun and Lehi, intentionally massacred the inhabitants of the village including women and children in order to remove the obstacle of people living on their own land. You speak of "dimensions of tragedy" and I say that they wiped out entire family units. Just like what had just happened to the Jewish people. You say "Never again" but you didn't wait a year to do it to another race and continue to do daily. I assure you sir, that wiping an entire village (one of 600 I might add) off the map is indeed a "systematic and indeed efficient liquidation of people"
