The "hiding among civilians" myth

Mitch Prothero | "You can be a member of Hezbollah your entire life and never see a military wing fighter with a weapon," a Lebanese military intelligence official, now retired, once told me. "They do not come out with their masks off and never operate around people if they can avoid it. They're completely afraid of collaborators. They know this is what breaks the Palestinians -- no discipline and too much showing off." more...  0 Comments

Lebanese Bloggers React to Qana Massacre; Emergency Demo in NYC Monday

Lebanese Blogger Network | Mononoke: "Our children are being slaughtered every day."

Arch.memory: "My mother said, / They still looked beautiful / while they were picking them up / in pieces, / the children."

Bashir"When mothers think of children, they think of baby bottles filled with milk. When mother Rice thinks of giving birth to a new middle east she thinks of smart bombs for our babies. Then she plays the piano as our country burns."

Firas: "Having a democratic society, a western-friendly image, and massive superiority in the ability to apply organized violence does not make this act by the state of Israel any less barbaric."

Lazarus: "Several months ago, 10 years after The Massacre of Qana I, I had posted the list of names of those brutally killed. That was supposed to be the last list coming from Qana. And now, an extra 60 names will be added. An extra 60 murders will be documented. And for what?"

Hilal || Jamal

Ahmad: "I cannot do much but pray for the souls of those innocent civilians who were massacred by the Indiscriminate Destructive Forces. And I decided to make my blog template black as my way of mourning for the victims."

The Qana massacre: Slaughter of innocents in Lebanon

Statement of the World Socialist Website Editorial Board | The Israeli massacre of Lebanese civilians, mainly children, in the village of Qana is a colossal war crime for which the United States government bears full responsibility.
The repeated missile strikes, launched in the dead of night while the targeted victims were asleep, reduced a four-story apartment building and nearby houses to rubble, killing at least 57 residents, including 37 children.
Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora called the Qana bombing a “heinous crime” committed by “Israeli war criminals.” Speaking in English, so as to make clear his message was addressed to the Bush administration, Siniora scotched a planned visit by US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, saying he would not hold talks with her until a ceasefire had been called.
For millions of people around the world, the atrocity captured the essence of the US-backed war on Lebanon, epitomizing its brutality and inhumanity. While the broad mass of humanity reacted with horror at the tragic loss of innocent life, and outrage toward the governments of the United States and Israel, the official response from Washington was utterly banal and callous. more...  0 Comments

When Jews Behave Like Nazis, They Become Nazis

Khalid Amayreh | On 23 March, 1944, 33 German soldiers were killed when members of an Italian resistance group set off a bomb close to a column of German troops who were marching on via Rasella. Adolph Hitler got furious and ordered that within 24 hours, ten Italians were to be shot for each dead German. Herbert Kappler, the local German commander, quickly compiled a list of 320 civilians who were to be killed. On 24 March, the victims were transported to Adreatine caves where they were summarily executed by the SS. more...  3 Comments

America's Attack Dog

Gary Sudborough | Israel is committing similar crimes to those perpetrated on them and other occupied people during World War II. Collective punishment and bombing civilian infrastructrure are war crimes. The presence of oil in the Middle East and the US imperialists' desire to control it are exceedingly important not only to understanding the Iraq war, but also to understanding the war in Lebanon more...  0 Comments

The Highway to Hell: U.S. & Israel Move to Remake Middle East

A.K. Gupta | There would be no need for a U.S. military presence in the Middle East today if not for the oil. Israel’s role is to keep the Arab nations divided and eliminate any threat to its regional dominance. That’s what it did in ’67 against Egypt , in ’82 against Syria and in ’81 with the bombing of Iraq’s nuclear reactor. Israel’s history from 1948 also negates the myth of “Israel the victim.” With the exception of the ’73 war it has been the aggressor every time. more...  0 Comments
