For years I’ve been reading about Israeli atrocities against Arab Palestinians and their supporters. One can almost get used to the horrific reports of death and destruction, imprisonment of children and new apartheid laws. Stories abound of Israel demanding information in exchange for exit visas. Even worse, it is well known that Israel, in order to secure information, puts pressure on Palestinians desperately needing medical treatment in outside hospitals.
But now and again a story surfaces that is so evil it can still shock me to the core. This tale of complete disregard for the feelings of human beings goes way beyond even what I imagined the most arrogant and cruel Zionist to be capable of.
In 1952, Shin Bet agents were sent undercover to spy inside Palestinian villages. Keeping their real identities secret, they married Arab women, with whom they had children. Decade later, truth came to light. ‘They tried to forget, but never could,’ mission leader says
“Your husband is not who you think he is. He is not Arab. Your husband is a Jew who was sent into your village on a mission by the defense establishment.” This was the news a few Israeli Arab women received from the head of the Mossad
I can’t begin to imagine the pain of those women so horribly deceived, but I take some satisfaction in the knowledge that this disgusting Zionist experiment was a complete failure. After a decade of these deceptions, the Shin Bet conceded that the information gleaned from these marital ‘spies’ was marginal. In fact, one can start to see the ultimate demise of the whole Zionist project as we read the daily news stories of a corrupt, lunatic State spiraling out of all control. And we know the consequences of this may be disastrous for all those who have supported Zionism.
The history books of the future must surely equate the Zionist project with that of the Nazis. As for me, along with many other humanists, I can’t wait for the day that the State of Israel, like the Nazi State before it, is relegated to the dustbin of history and such crimes, all in the name of racial supremacy and chosen-ness, will be used only to teach and warn future generations of man’s inhumanity to man.
