GUEST,Al BS: The Euston Manifesto (57* d) RE: BS: The Euston Manifesto 03 Jun 06

"The first room was dark,everything was in disorder, but there was no one . In the second , amid disembowelled furniture and all sorts of debris , I found some bodies cold .Here the cleaning had been done with machine guns,then hand grenades.It had been finished with knives -anyone could see that.The same thing in the next room , but as I was about to leave I heard something like a sigh .I looked everywhere , turned over all the bodies , and eventually found a little foot ,still warm.
It was a little girl of ten, mutilated by a hand grenade but still alive .Everywhere it was the same horrible sight....there had been 400 people in this village -about 50 had escaped. All the rest had been deliberately massacred in cold blood for,as I observed for myself , this gang was admirably disciplined and acted only under orders"

The above statement was given by Jacques de Reynier of the International Red Cross who went to the Palestinian   village of Deir Yassin after it had been destroyed in April 1948 by a Zionist militia called the Irgun ,commanded by Menachem Begin .
The above statement is cited in David Hurst The Gun and the Olive Branch page 139
