Sabra And Shatila

Closing Thought–17Sep19

I apologize for I intended to post this yesterday but a trip to the hospital for tests stopped the process of posting…..

The news out of the Middle East is that BiBi is running in a close election….we in the West could care less…..

I have tried to make my readers aware of this event that gets little attention in the Western media……https://lobotero.com/2018/09/18/sabra-and-shatila-a-remembrance/

This historical even took place in southern Lebanon……

Israel’s invasion began June 6, 1982. After much destruction, the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which had defended the camps since its inception, agreed to leave Lebanon in August. They were given American assurances that civilians left behind would be protected. The president-elect of Lebanon, and the leader of the Phalange, was assassinated on September 14th. The Israeli army proceeded to invade and occupy West Beirut. 

Israeli troops surrounded the camps to prevent the refugees from leaving and allowed entry of the Phalange, a known enemy of the Palestinians. The Israelis fired flares throughout the night to light up the killing field – thus allowing the militiamen to see their way through the narrow alleys of the camps. The massacre went on for two days. As the bloodbath concluded, Israel supplied the bulldozers to dig mass graves. In 1983, Israel’s investigative Kahan Commission found that Ariel Sharon, the Israeli Defense Minister, bore “personal responsibility for the slaughter.

It has been 37 years and the wounds are still open for this attack…this event should NEVER be forgotten….like the USS Liberty incident that is all but forgotten…..and the perpetrators have NEVER paid a price for the crimes.
