Butcher of Beirut Meets Maker

True tale of genocidal terrorist Ariel Sharon needs telling

By Ronald L. Ray

Ariel “the Bulldozer” Sharon, former prime minister and alleged “king” of Israel, is dead at age 85. First, it was Nelson Mandela, a mass murderer who rose to destroy a once-great country. Then it was Edgar Bronfman, another “king of the Jews,” who ruled the far-flung dominions his mafioso father built. Now Sharon has been judged, and his body has become food for worms. While lapdog media and pansy politicians laud the ostensible “lion of Judah,” AMERICAN FREE PRESS again presents the truth about this architect of the anti-Arab genocide in Zionist-occupied Palestine.

Acclaimed by his eulogists as a “peacemaker,” Sharon was a militant, who methodically sought to expand “Eretz Israel” (“Greater Israel”) ever further into the world, recognizing no borders but the “last tree planted” by a Jew. Even so, the thoughtful among those Jews, including many veterans of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), have admitted that Sharon was instead the butcher of babies and mothers.

He was one of the “founding generation” of terrorists who imposed Israel on the backs of native Palestinians. The list of his war crimes goes back at least to 1953, when a young Sharon led a murderous raid on the village of Qibya. Sixty-nine innocent Palestinians were killed—two-thirds of whom were women and children—and 50 homes destroyed. UN observers reported “bullet-riddled bodies near the doorways,” as evidence that the occupants were kept in their houses while the walls were brought down on them.

In the 1956 Sinai campaign, Sharon’s paratroopers cold-bloodedly executed 49 unarmed Egyptian prisoners of war. Israeli censors suppressed the story for decades, according to the Los Angeles Times in 1995. And Sharon established the infamous “Unit 101” retribution squads.

Between 700 (according to the Israelis) and 3,500 Palestinians were massacred in the Lebanese refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila on September 18, 1982. This brutal bloodbath was carried out by a Lebanese, purportedly Christian, Phalangist militia. But it was Sharon who expressly approved letting them into the camps, and an Israeli inquiry concluded that he bore “personal responsibility” for the murders.

Then there are the 240 or more defenseless Palestinians, including even the disabled, who were killed by the IDF in the 2002 “Operation Defensive Shield,” a prototype of Benjamin Netanyahu’s even deadlier “Operation Cast Lead” and the Israeli scorched-earth “Dahiya” military doctrine.

Infamous for reportedly stating, “We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it,” Sharon went so far in 2001 as to declare all Jews above the law. “Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the state of Israel on trial,” he pontificated.

Sharon escaped retribution in this life, but the strict and just Judge of us all may well have decided differently.
