February 4, 2007) Zalman Amit, "The Collapse of Academic Freedom in Israel: Tantura, Teddy Katz and Haifa University", ''Counterpunch (retrieved February 4, 2007) In ''The Jerusalem Report'', Morris doubts that what took place was a "massacre", and maintains that eyewitness statements made long after the event are no substitute for contemporaneous documentary evidence. Katz interviewed 20 Israelis and 20 Palestinians (some of whom were 5–7 years old in 1948). "Eye witness accounts: Tantura", Muslimedia Morris believes that one village woman was raped, Alexandroni troops may have executed POWs, and there may have been some looting, based on an army report that uses the Hebrew word ''khabala'' (sabotage). Ari Shavit, "Survival of the Fittest", ''Haaretz'' During the trial in December 2000, it emerged that Katz's claim that Abu Fahmi, one of the witnesses, had told him the "army rounded up the villagers, lined them up against a wall and shot them", was incorrect. When the court examined Katz's tapes of his interviews, it did not find such a statement. On the contrary, Abu Fahmi said repeatedly, "We did not see them killing after we raised our hands." According to Morris, it is telling that "no residents went on record in 1948 or any time before the 1990s to claim there had been a massacre." Benny Morris (2004) p. 300 In August 1998, a former resident of the village, Mahmoud al Yihiya Yihiya, published a book about Tantura in which he describes the battle and names 52 villagers who died, but does not call it a massacre.

Lying on a small headland at the north side of a protected inlet, it is identified with D-jr of Egyptian sources, Biblical Dor, and with Dor Dora of Greek and Roman sources. Gibson, S., Kingsley, S. and J. Clarke. 1999. "Town and Country in the Southern Carmel: Report on the Landscape Archaeology Project at Dor," ''Levant'' 31:71-121. The documented history of the site begins in the Late Bronze Age (though the town itself was founded in the Middle Bronze Age, c. 2000 BCE), and ends in the Crusader period. The port dominated the fortunes of the town throughout its 3000-odd year history. Its primary role in all these diverse cultures was that of a commercial entrepot and a gateway between East and West. The remains of a successor town, the village of Tantura, lies a few hundred meters south of the archaeological site as does the modern kibbutz and resort of Nahsholim. *Please review and improve these articles: Israeli-occupied territories • Israel's record: human rights in the occupied territories (Human rights in Israel#Israel's record: human rights in the occupied territories) • Children in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict • Rawabi *''' Neutral Point-of-view (WP:NPOV): ''' Palestine Liberation Organization • First Intifada • Second Intifada • Tantura • List of massacres committed during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war • Mohammad Amin al-Husayni • 1948 Arab-Israeli War • Palestinian immigration (Israel) • Battle of Jenin • Jerusalem • Siege_of_Jerusalem_(1948) • Palmach • Civilian casualty ratio *'''Verifiability (WP:V)''': List of villages depopulated during the Arab-Israeli conflict • Armed attacks of the PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine#Armed attacks of the PFLP) • Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine • British Mandate of Palestine • Palestinian National Council • 1936–1939 Arab revolt in Palestine Readers are told of events that never happened, such as the nonexistent May 1948 Tantura "massacre" or the expulsion of Arabs within twelve days of the partition resolution.

The Brown-capped Babbler is an endemic (endemic (ecology)) resident breeding bird in Sri Lanka. Its habitat is forest undergrowth and thick scrub. This species, like most babblers, is not migratory (bird migration), and has short rounded wings and a weak flight. In Sri Lanka, this bird is known as ''Parandel-kurulla'' (translates to 'Dried-grass(colored) bird') or ''Redi Diang'' (onomatopoeic (Onomatopoeia) in origin) in Sinhala Language.
