Massacring the Truth

It is official…the Palestinians now admit there was no massacre in the Jenin refugee camp last year, despite prior assertions that a massacre had taken place.

In a study to be released next month by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and provided exclusively to The Jerusalem Post, Palestinian sources confirm that at least 34 Palestinian armed terrorists were killed fighting in the battle for the Jenin Refugee Camp.

The total number of Palestinian causalities in the battle was 52, a sharp contrast from the claims of Palestinian propaganda professionals who have openly stated that thousands had died.

The research was conducted by Jonathan D. HaLevi and the JCPA utilizing a wide and comprehensive variety of Palestinian written testimony and material which was recently published in Palestinian newspapers, books and Websites.

The study reveals that for the first time that Palestinian terror organizations saw themselves as “armed combatants” and not as civilians who died in a deadly massacre.

The 35 page study, which is based on primary sources, clearly illustrates that Fatah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas prepared themselves thoroughly with automatic weapons, grenades, anti-tank missiles and explosives and perceived the confrontation with IDF troops as nothing less than a “military to military battle.”

The study refutes claims by PA leaders at the time that IDF forces were attacking innocent civilians and that the only Palestinians who had perished in the battle of Jenin were innocent, unarmed Palestinian men, women and children.

I bet the apologies and corrections will start emanating from the likes of Saeb Erekat any moment now, not to mention the web sites of such left-wing organizations as the ISM and World Socialist
