    The full name of the one used human shields in 1939 was:

    Yusuf Sa’id Abu Durra (1900 – 1940 – nom de guerre: Abu Abed). He was one of the chief Arab rebel commanders during the 1936–39 Arab revolt in Palestine.

    Time and time again the slur promoters prove they do not want real change. On the contrary, their goal is making Israel look bad.

    This explains, as soon as Arab countries made officially peaceful recognition with Israel and the lie of “racism” was exposed even further, desperate Hagai of betselem had to use the slur, which Omar did after him.

    Interesting though, now two rather very, very liberals, Daniel Kurtzer and Aaron David Miller just wrote in Newsweek against this HRW-Shakir thing, and against use of this term and that it really is counter productive.
    First they denounce the language of so called “crimes” compared to real crimes against humanity. They add that Shakir makes it sound as if conditions are in a vacuum. Of course the constant anti Israel violence and real threats are real.

    If I am not mistaken, the very first push of anti Haredi incitement in NY in context of Cobid, was an Israeli-American “progressive” journalist. it was before the Levaya where Deblasio reacted the way he did.

    A Crime without a Name

    Henry Morgenthau, the American ambassador to Turkey (1913–1916) during the first Wilson administration, watched the unfolding policy of the systematic slaughter of Armenians with great concern. He termed it “race murder” because no existing English word captured the full horror of the events he observed.
    Others referred to the policy as the “crime without a name.” Even though the United States would not officially take a position, Morgenthau felt morally compelled to express his personal feeling about what he saw as unacceptable.
    The answer he received from Mehmet Talaat, the Turkish head of state, reveals much about the following discussion of these crimes: “Why are you so interested in the Armenians anyway? . . . You are a Jew, these people are Christians. . . . What have you to complain of? Why can’t you let us do with these Christians as we please?

    His response, quoted in WSJ on May 3, 2015. In an article by L. Gordon Crovitz, titled, ‘The Diplomat Who Called Out Mass Murder’

    Morgenthau replied: “I am not here as a Jew, but as American ambassador. My country contains something like 97 million Christians and something less than three million Jews. So, at least in my ambassadorial capacity, I am 97% Christian. But after all, that is not the point. I do not appeal to you in the name of any race or religion, but merely as a human being.”

    He added: “Our people will never forget these massacres. They will always resent the wholesale destruction of Christians in Turkey.”

    WSJ article adds:

    Morgenthau recruited American missionaries and philanthropists in 1915 to form the American Committee for Armenian and Syrian Relief, which solicited donations from across the U.S. The group distributed vivid posters with the tagline “Give or We Perish.” After leaving his post, Morgenthau often spoke on behalf of the relief effort. Americans contributed $100 million, equivalent to almost $2.5 billion today.

    I think ujm was referring to violent attacks from (aggressive) Armenians upon Jews prior to the genocide. But saying lives is a must.
    It shoumd also be noted that Jews, jut another minority, feared they would get the same treatment as Armenians from the Turks uf they protested to much…

    In the words of writers, even by unfair critic Mr. Kieser, p.302:

    That Jews would face fate of Armenians as many feared …

    Or this:
    The Jewish World, (Messrs. Philip Johns & Company, 1898), p. 156:

    The Zionist Movement
    West End Meeting …
    Mr. O. J. Simon… regarded the Ottonan Government as a dangerous power. For notwithstanding that he had treated the Jews comparatively well, it had but few Jews and they would be massacred like the Armenians and the Greeks…

    Debate At North London
    … he differentiated between Zionism and the religious idea…
    But if the Sultan did sell Palestine to the Jews, those who went there would suffer the same fate as the Armenians.

    Yet, here is more on:

    Mr. Klorisky, the wise and sharp one in our local politicians, did well to raise a great voice for the benefit of our brethren who are beyond the Euphrates; And beautiful was his proposal to the High Commissioner to open the gates of our charitable country to some of the refugees …

    But there remain other great friends of the Armenians in England itself, and in America in particular, and among these friends we are glad to name, in particular, Dr. Weitzmann in London, and H. Stephen Wise and Morgenthau in Washington.

    From clear sources we know that these three Jews, not only did help the Armenians with advice and money, but thanks to them the governments continued to be interested in the future of Armenia and since – Dr. Weizmann is involved, he will cerainly do much for the Armenian question.

    From July 12, 1946 article:

    Out in Jerusalem, in an office situated ironically on Bethlehem Road, where, according to Jewish legend Mother Rachel weeps at midnight over the plight of her children, the people of Israel, I met Achmed Shukeiri, chief of the Arab Office, who reiterated in his conversation the words of Goebbels justified the murder of six million Jews of Europe “because Hitler could not have been all wrong,” and warned that his side was ready to “play along with Moscow.” They always play along, the Husseini-Shukeiri mob. Outside the Young Men’s Chr. Association building in Jerusalem, where the hearings of the Anglo-American Inquiry Committee were being held at the time, I met Jamal el Husseini; he issued the same warning as Shukeiri (he being Shukeiri’s chief) of playing along with Moscow, and reiterated his justification of the mass murder of six million Jews “for Hitler couldn’t be all wrong… you have got to see both sides of a question, my man, both sides of a question…” Jamal Husseini saw both sides so well that he joined in igniting, at a time most critical for the Allies, the Iraq coup d’etat to gauleiter the Middle East for Hitler

    Shukairy got his start in “politics” in the early 1930s when he belonged to a group of fanatical extremists led by the ex-Mufti. This gang cooperated with the Communists and prior to the HitlerStalin Pact sought in every possible way to sabotage the Allied war effort against the Nazis in the Middle East. However, when Soviet Russia joined the Allies, Shukairy’s group split with the Communists and went all out for Hitler.</blockquote

    From a report in “Ahora!” magazine, volume 186, 1967:

    Shukairy worked with the Russian communists in the past, long before Nasser out of some consequence. But Shukairy is now openly linked with the Chinese communists, although the Chinese and Russian goals of revolutionary uprising seem now to coincide in the Middle East, it differs only as who will emerge on top. Shukairy cooperated with the communist party of Palestine, directed by Moscow before the Second World War. However, after Hitler attacked Russia and the communists around the world changed positions, the fierce and unpredictable Shukairy has aligned himself with Hitler for his programs against the Jews.

    Original text in Spanish:

    Shukairy cooperó con el Partido Comunista de Palestina, dirigido por Moscú antes de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Sin embargo, después que Hitler atacó a Rusia ya los comunistas en todo el mundo cambió posiciones, el feroz e impredecible Shukairy se alineó con Hitler por sus programas contra los judios.

    August, 1946 August 8
    Ahmad Shukairy, Director of the Arab Office in Jerusalem, declared that ” the Arab World is looking eagerly for the stand Moscow will take” on the Palestine problem, and he saw no reason why “America should be a party to the Palestine case and not Russia.”

    From: La Grande Observer, La Grande, Oregon. Thursday, August 8, 1946. Page 5

    Arabs Seek Russian Aid in Preventing Holy Land Split Delegation May Be Sent to Moscow in Effort to Enlist Help Against British
    JERUSALEM, Aug. 8 (UP) Ahmad Shukairy. head of the Arab office, discussed today that unofficial contacts have been made with Moscow with view to obtaining Soviet support for Palestine Arabs in opposing Britain’s proposed partition of the Holy Land.
    Shukairy said that it was possible that an Arab delegation would be sent Moscow even before the Palestine issue is raised before the United Nations general assembly now scheduled to meet Sept. 23 in New York City. “We are already somewhat late in doing this,” he said, but added that unofficial, contacts with the Soviet had- been made and that official contacts, will follow.
    British Plan Hit
    Shukairy emphasized that Arabs oppose in strongest fashion the British-plan to split Palestine into separate Arab and Jewish provinces under British control. He predicted that the Arab states will not participate in the discussions Britain- has scheduled so long as partition is on the agenda.
    He also reemphasized that <b>Arabs would hot participate in any round-table discussion with the Jews</b>. Arab States which already have accepted invitations to the London conference, he said, did so before they knew that Britain had the partition plan in mind…
    He said that <b>western democracy and democratic principles had failed in Palestine</b>.
    Russia Face Test
    “Palestine now provides an acid test for the Soviet regime,” he said, “whether it will project its philosophy toward assisting the Arabs.” If Britain insists on proceeding with its partition plan, he said thaf Palestine “which is on the verge of struggle will fight.”</blockqote>

    The Open Racism of the Future State of Palestine

    (Scholars for Peace in the Middle East) Shmuel Trigano –

    When considering the possibility that an outside force could be given the responsibility of overseeing the implementation of a planned agreement with Israel in the West Bank, PA President Mahmoud Abbas told the Egyptian press in Cairo at the beginning of August: “I am ready to accept a third party which supervises the implementation of the agreement, NATO forces, for example, but I will not accept the presence of Jews in these forces or a [single] Israeli on the Land of Palestine.”

    There is a perfect coherence between this demand and the refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. The Palestinian Authority is building a racist regime based on the principle of establishing an apartheid between a Palestine untainted by Jewish blood and a mixed State of Israel.

    According to the draft constitution of the planned state, Palestine proper would be Arab and Islamic:
    “This constitution is based on the will of Palestinian-Arab people” (Article 1),
    “the Palestinian people are a part of the Arab and Islamic nation” (Article 2),
    “sovereignty belongs to the Palestinian Arab people” (Article 10),
    “the legal character of the Arab-Palestinian people will be embodied by the state” (Article 13),
    “Islam will be the official religion of the state” (Article 6).

    What Is Future Of Palestine Liberation Forces?
    BEIRUT, Lebanon.
    The Arab defeat in the Middle East war leaves a big question mark over the future of the Palestine Liberation Organization and its firebrand leader leftist Ahemd Shukairy.

    Shukairy narrowly escaped capture by Israeli forces in Jerusalem and many of his “Liberation Army” are now prisoners of the Israelis. “We will wipe Israel off the face of the map and no Jew will survive,” Shukairy declared two days before the war broke out June 5.
    He vowed to lead the vanguard of his troops into the Israeli sector of Jerusalem and set up a “purely Arab government” there for all of Palestine.

    The 60-year-old former lawyer was seen briefly in Amman and Damscus in the last stages of the fighting wearing a khaki battle uniform.
    Persons who saw him said he looked fatigued and dejected. His army of 15,000 guerrillas had moved into some of the Sinai and Gaza Strip positions evacuated by the U.N. Emergency force before the fighting began. Several thousand of them are believed to be in Is raeli hands with most of their arms and equipment.
    Most of the equipment for Shukairy’s force came from the Soviet bloc and Red China, and he boasted that he had the support of the Chinese leaders.
    Egypt and Syria gave him strong support, but Jordan and other pro-Western Arab countries objected to his ultra-leftist leanings and his campaign to overthrow King Hussein of Jordan.
    Jordan never allowed the Liberation Army to operate on its territory, which would have been the logical springboard for an attack on Israel. Last December, the Jordanian government ordered Shukairy to close his office in the Jordanian sector of Jerusalem. Shukairy and Hussein made up publicly when the king signed a defense alliance with Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, but the Israeli victory ended that..

    Graciela Sirota, 19 years old Jewish student brutally attacked, cigarettes burned on her, swastikas carved on her body by nazi gang TACUARA in Argentina with a message that it was revenge for eliminating Adolf Eichmann y.s. Many protested, Jews and non Jews. Shops closed posting: “closed as protest nazi aggressions”. Students mobilized.
    Some 5 months later, this Nazi group was saluted and praised by United Arab Republic’s rep. in the U.N. Ahmad Shukairy (Shukeiri, Shuqairy – prayed during WW2 for Hitler’s victory and Britain’s loss and was former aide to Hitler’s ally the Mufti al-Hussein y.s.) And a bit over a year passed since he invented (Oct. 17, 1961) the apartheid slur on Israel without explanation, but using the condemnation momentum in UN against South Africa to tarnish Israel by comparing it to S.A. He later on, May-1964 became PLO’s first chairman.
