Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - April 7, 2004

Deir Yassin was an Arab village on the outskirts of west Jerusalem not very far from the highway that connects Jerusalem with the Mediterranean seacoast of Palestine. On Friday, April 9th 1948 Deir Yassin was the scene of an unprovoked and premeditated massacre that has since come to symbolize the inhumanity and savagery of political Zionis

Today, close to five million refugees are dispossessed of their land and identity. For over 50 years, they have suffered the greatest injustice and it must be remedied. Paramount among the remedies for this injustice is the Right of Return. Unquestionably, it has an irrefutable and solid legal basis. It is also an indestructible core of the Palestinian psyche. To them, it is sacred.

John and Johayna from the Middle East Radio Project collective bring the history and the aftermath of this massacre. They chronicle the events by voicing the history of attacks on two Palestinian families and talk to a young women, whose husband was murdered by the Israelis by placing a bomb to his car.
