The Editor,



Dear Editor:


Ralph Seliger, in his letter in Nov./Dec. 2008 issue, makes a number of statements that are contrary to historic facts.


The Plan Dalet, though signed in March 1948, was actually formulated in Dec. 1947. It stated: " These operations can be carried out in the following manner: either by destroying villages [by setting fire to them, by blowing them up and by planting mines in their rubble] and especially those population centres that are difficult to control permanently; or by mounting combing and control operations according to the following guidlines: encirclement of villages, conducting a search inside them. In case of resistance, the armed forces must be wiped out and the population expelled outside the borders of the state". {Plan D [Dalet] of the Hagana, drafted Dec. 1947}, as exactly quoted in { "An Israeli in Palestine" Jeff Halper, 2008, p.97}.


He states: " The true moral question of ethnic cleansing comes after Arab forces were defeated or contained in mid-to late 1948, when the threat had receded." The facts are that the Zioinst designs, for the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians from their native land, were formulated as far back as 1895,  by Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism. He stated: " We shall try to spirit the penniless [Arab] population across the border.... Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discretely and circumspectly." { from R.Patai, ed. The complete diaries of Thodor Herzl, Vol.1}. This plan was reaffirmed by all future Zionist leaders, including Joseph Weitz, Chief Representative of the Jewish Agency and Director of the Jewish National Fund, and David Ben Gurion, Israel's first prime minister.  Ben Gurion, when announcing the creation of Israel, on May 14, 1948, refused to define its borders. He stated we are creating a state in the western part of our country. Israel is the only state in the world that has no defined borders. He later stated in his diaries, after conquest of 78% of historic Palestine : " To maintain the status quo will not do. We have set up a dynamic state bent upon expansion.".{ Ben Gurion diaries, edited by Michael Bar-Zohar, and published in 1954}


 Furthermore, Mr. Seliger speaks of Arab states invading Israel on May 15, 1948. Before a single Arab soldier entered Palestine on May 15, 1948, Israel had occupied scores of cities, including Acre and Jaffa, and towns that were apportioned to the Arabs in the partition plan, and drove over 300,000 Palestinians from their homes, besides the scores of massacres committed by the Zionist terrorist gangs. The process of ethnic cleansing continued afterwards, as long-planned.


It is time that Israel's apologists begin to look at the historic facts. The Palestinian peolpe are calling for a modicum of justice and compliance with international law, so that both Israelis and Palestinians can live in peace and security in this tortured land.


Yours sincerely,


Ismail zayid, MD.
