Another massacre. A van full of civilians + children was bombed. They were civilians, from Marwaheen, South Lebanon, who went to a UN (French) post to ask for refuge after Israel gave them an hour ultimatum to leave or die. The UN did not give them refuge. They tried to escape to Tyre (Sour). Their van was targeted. 21 were murdered. Add them to more than 70 others so far.
I just left Dahiyeh (Arabic for suburb). It is one of the target areas for Israeli shelling. I reached Beirut (8 km away). I heard the sound of explosions, still do.
Breaking news: Haret Hureik and other areas in Dahiyeh are being shelled.
So the part of the UN resolution 1559 that has to do with militias was implemented neither by the Syrian troops before they left nor by a decision of the Lebanese government. And the “National Dialogue” did not do the trick.
So Israel had to interfere “personally” and finish the job with the full support of Bolton’s “International Community”.
Reminder: Israel boasted that it was behind UN Res 1559.
Is this part of the “Grand Plan” for the new and improved “Greater Middle East”?
Is this a continuation of “Iraq the Model” plan?
This is a war involving Syria, Iran, USA and Israel.
I fear we are faced with two options:
Total destruction of Lebanon by Israel to get rid of HizbAllah or a civil war.
What is happening is part of a war that started in the early part of the 20th century.
Even if HizbAllah is gone. Rejection of Israeli injustice will spring in other forms. They always did and always will.
Whether atheists, deists, or plain simple believers in anything, that’s not the problem.
The root of the problem is in the injustice.
No justice no peace.
