“Human Animals” Since 1948

The Jewish soldiers who took part in Al-Dawayima massacre in 1948 reported horrific scenes: babies whose skulls were cracked open, women raped or burned alive in houses and men stabbed to death.
Victims: 455 innocent people including 170 kids.

Natan Alterman wrote a poem about the Al-Dawayima massacre:

On a jeep he crossed the street
A young man, Prince of Beasts
An old couple cowered to the wall
And with his angelic smile he called:
”The submachine I will try”, and he did
Spreading the old man’s blood on the lid.

Youth's poetry ignites my quest, Against oppression, I protest. In Palestine's struggle, voices rise, For freedom, peace, justice, my cries.
