What is a massacre?
Was the Israeli invasion of Jenin a massacre? The Israeli government and press say no because only a few dozen Palestinians were killed. As I recall when Al Capone’s hit men executed 7 of Bugs Moran’s boys in 1929 it was dubbed the “Valentine’s Day Massacre”. What actually constitutes a massacre? Honestly I think the whole thing is just more distraction that moves us away from the critical issue which is occupation. Lastly, even if it is not technically a “massacre”, isn’t it still a horrible act. Look at the photos of the place. It has been completely leveled.
