The legacy of the Sabra and Shatila massacre lives on through its survivors – We Are Not Numbers

I often find myself wondering, “Why must Palestininas struggle wherever we are? Are we cursed?” Forcing us to flee our homes and leave everything behind in 1948 (the year of the Nakba, when Israel was created at our expense) was not enough. Our punishment continued. There are so many examples that could be cited. But inContinue reading “The legacy of the Sabra and Shatila massacre lives on through its survivors – We Are Not Numbers”

After Beirut Blast, Israel Revives Tales of Hezbollah Ammonium Nitrate Terror Plots – Global Research

Hands off Lebanon: Macron’s Self-serving ‘New Pact’ Must Be Shunned – Mint Press News

Following the August 4 blast which killed over 200 people and wounded thousands more, the irony was inescapable when Macron showed up in a bizarre display of “solidarity” on the streets of Beirut. Macron should have taken his roadshow to the streets of Paris, not Beirut, to reassure his own people, burdened by growing inequality, rising unemployment and socio-economic hardship. However,Continue reading “Hands off Lebanon: Macron’s Self-serving ‘New Pact’ Must Be Shunned – Mint Press News”

Battleground Beirut: Western colony or back to the East? – The Saker

Beirut Explosion Lays Groundwork for Regime Change Push – OffGuardian

So, whatever the cause of the explosion, it’s certainly being seized as a political opportunity. And, historically speaking, it’s very rare the US doesn’t have some hand in creating its own opportunities.

The Beirut Explosion: Who Is Responsible? – American Herald Tribune

The question has to be asked: “who benefits from the explosion?” The affected area belongs mainly to people who are not generally friendly to Hezbollah.
