By Israeli historian Adan Raz,

Early Jewish settlers in Palestine “looted Arab property”, a new book by an Israeli historian has said, adding “authorities turned a blind eye”.

In what has been described as the “first-ever comprehensive study” by Israeli historian Adam Raz described “the extent to which Jews looted Arab property” during the Jewish gangs’ attack in 1948 on Palestinians and their homes, and explains why Ben-Gurion said “most of the Jews are thieves.”

Writing in Haaretz, Ofer Aderet’s review of Raz’s book was entitled: “Jewish soldiers and civilians looted Arab neighbors’ property en masse in ’48. The authorities turned a blind eye.”

Another senior writer at Haaretz, Gideon Levy, commented that the words “most of the Jews are thieves”, “wasn’t uttered by an antisemitic leader, a Jew hater or a neo-Nazi, but by the founder of the State of Israel, two months after it was founded.”

Levy said that the Israeli authorities “turned a blind eye and thus encouraged the looting, despite all the denunciations, the pretense and a few ridiculous trials.”

The looting served a national purpose: to quickly complete the ethnic cleansing of most of the country of its Arabs, and to see to it that 700,000 refugees would never even imagine returning to their homes

he explained.

The Israeli writer added: “Even before Israel managed to destroy most of the houses, and wipe from the face of the earth more than 400 villages, came this mass looting to empty them out, so that the refugees would have no reason to return.”

Levy also said that the looters “were motivated not only by ugly greed to possess stolen property right after the war was over, property belonging in some cases to people who were their neighbors just the day before, and not only by the desire to get rich quick by looting household items and ornaments, some of them very costly…, but they served, consciously or unconsciously, the ethnic purification project that Israel has tried in vain to deny all through the years.”

“Almost everyone took part” in the looting, he added, which “was the small looting, the one that proved if only for a moment that ‘most of the Jews are thieves,’ as the founding father said. But that was mini-looting compared to the institutionalized looting of property, houses, villages and cities – the looting of the land.”

“Denial and repression” were part of the reasons why heads of Jewish community allowed the looting of Arab property in Palestine. He said: “Thirst for revenge and drunkenness with victory after the difficult war might perhaps explain, even partially, the participation of so many.”

Levy said that “the looting reflects not only momentary human weakness but is intended to serve a clear strategic goal – purifying the country of its inhabitants – words fail.”

Concluding his article, Levy said: “Anyone who believes that a solution will ever be found to the conflict without proper atonement and compensation for these acts, is living in an illusion.”

He asked Israel to “think about the feelings of the descendants, the Arabs of Israel and the Palestinian refugees, who are living with us and alongside us. They see the pictures and read these things – what crosses their minds?”

He answers: “They will never be able to see the villages of their ancestors: Israel demolished most of them, to leave not a shred,” noting that “one small stolen souvenir from the home that was lost might cause a tear to fall.”

Adding: “Just ask the Jews enraged over any stolen Jewish property.”

  1. As prophesied ,when peace and justice is achieved in the Holy Land ,we will know that the new world is at hand.
    This historical disclosure will hopefully lead to it's conclusion .

  2. I have heard from American Indians and American libtards that America was stolen too. There are Germans who claim that France stole Alsace-Loraine. There are Frenchmen who claim that they just stole it back after the Germans stole it from them. I have not witnessed it myself, but I suspect that there are Welshmen who say that Anglo-Saxons stole England. At this late date, what can we do about it? Give it all back to the Indians along with all of the modern cities, railroads, universities, corporate boardrooms, my home, and everything else? After that Democrats get through destroying America, that might be the best thing to do in the end. I am wondering if perhaps the better track would be to just be thankful for what we have and be nice.

    • The Vikings were the Native Indians. This is well documented, We learned this in elementary the late 1960's – early 1970's. They were here 500 years before fruit loop Columbus.

  3. Interesting article, but "Denial and repression" after the war could not be the reason why heads of the jewish community allowed it because they left Germany 1933-1939 with their assets intact. That is why they had coins with the Star of David on one side and the Swastika on the other side of the coin. Unless author Adan Raz is referring to the jews that migrated after the war, they were from a different sect. Probably the same sect that opened fire on the British.
