Covering for a war criminal of the Kafr Qasim massacre

Fifty-four years have passed since the terrible massacre at Kafr Qasim (29 October 1956) on the first day of the Sinai-Suez war Israel launched against Egypt, in which Israel was quickly joined by its co-conspirators, Britain and France. Since the Israeli Establishment has a tendency to deny, it is our duty to remember, to expose, and to keep investigating. Recall what Tamar Trablusi-Haddad wrote on 10 October 1999: "Kafr Qasim? Never heard of it."
This year in 23 October 2010, the subject boiled over again, on Moshe Timor's programme "Shishi Ishi" ["Personal Friday" – trans.] on Channel 2 of the Voice of Israel [state radio]. In this program the journalist and former Mossad agent Gad Shimron took pride in the fact that he covered and continues to cover for one of the main perpetrators of the massacre: Lieutenant Gabriel Dahan.
