Palestinian civilians murdered in cold blood
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - May 4, 2008

Issa Karake, Head of the Prisoners' Committee in the Palestinian Parliament:
     "There was no policy of detaining people during the War of 1948; rather it was a policy of getting rid of the prisoners by execution. . . There is much evidence that confirms the fact that civilians were executed en masse after they were detained."
