Give permission for the building of a memorial at Deir Yassin

On April 9th 1948, the massacre of more than 100 Palestinian civilians was carried out by Jewish terrorists at the village of Deir Yassin near Jerusalem.
There are few memorials for Palestinians who died in 1948. Their history, in which the massacre at Deir Yassin is a very significant event, has been largely buried and forgotten. And yet, like the descendants of the victims in Armenia (1915-17), in the Soviet Union (1929-53), in Nazi Germany (1933-45), in China (1949-52, 1957-60, and 1966-76), and in Cambodia (1975-79), the descendants of Palestinians want the world to remember what they suffered, what they lost and why they died.
In the spirit of reconciliation essential for the success of any peace process, we propose to build a memorial at Deir Yassin to the victims of the massacre of April 9th 1948.We therefore call upon the Minister for Memorials in the Israeli Government and the Jerusalem municipal authorities to grant us permission to build a memorial at Deir Yassin.
