On April 9, 1948, 120 fighters from the Irgun and Lehi Zionist paramilitary groups attacked Deir Yassin, near Jerusalem, a Palestinian-Arab village of approximately 600 people. During the assault, around 107 villagers were killed, including women and children. After the attack, the Irgun and Lehi troops began pillaging the houses and corpses, stealing money and jewels from the survivors, the Israeli historian Benny Morris reported.During Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, which took place during the winter of 2008-2009, 1,385 Palestinians were killed, among them 762 noncombatants, 107 women and 318 children. Thirteen Israelis were killed, 10 combatants and three Israeli noncombatants, according to B'Tselem, an Israeli human rights organization.As a result of the siege, Gaza lost 95 percent of its industrial sector, and imports and travel to and from the Gaza Strip have been severely curtailed.Today, 1.5 million people in the Gaza Strip are on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe.Given the gravity of the situation in Gaza, what would Einstein have said about it today?
