Letter from Lebanon July 26, 2006

Posted by elizabethwong in Current Affairs, International, Politics.

This message was sent by Hanady Salman, an editor at a local Lebanese newspaper As-Safir.

“Dear friends and colleagues ,

You will all have to excuse me for sending this. It’s pictures of the bodies of babies killed by the israelis in South lebanon. They are all burnt. I need your help. I am almost certain these pictures won’t bepublished in the West, although they are associated press pictures.

aaa188.jpgI need your help exposing them if you can. The problem is these are people who were asked to leave their village , Ter Hafra , this morning , within two hours , or else…. So those who were able to flee went to the closer UN base wherethey were asked to leave. I think that after the Qana massacres in 1996 when civilians were bombed after they took shelter in UN headquarters , the UN does not want to be responssible for the lives of civilians.

A FEW MINUTES AGO , the Israeli asked the people of Al Bustan village in the south to evacuate their homes. I am afraid massacares will keep happening as long as Israeli actions are uncheked.

Please help us if you can

Hanady Salman ”

This is heartbreaking

Dear Petal,
I just heard Rice’s statement on the BBC and it’s infuriating.

I have no words. The world seems to be without words..

4. Gerbil - July 27, 2006

I’m British and i’m so ashamed of my governments cowardly stance on this issue

5. John Brown - July 31, 2006

Hezbollah armed terrorists STARTED this conflict…PERIOD, END OF SUBJECT. The Lebanon government is too weak to even control their own country and disarm the terrorist wing of Hezbollah …. People have the right to defend themselves! I’m sorry for the children BUT Hezbollah USED THEM for cover.

John, you have a very narrow mind, or a very short memory. These troubles go back a lot further than mere weeks. Lets not forget the circumstances that led to the birth of Hezbollah in the first place. Everybody is talking about the poor children, but don’t forget the old axiom of “TRUTH IS FIRST CASUALTY IN WAR”

aslong The Hisbollah will use women and children as shield/cover for their terror innocent people will die.
the top picture of the little girl is a fake. no blood and no dirt. you can’t fool every body.
this war didn’t started in July 2006 it started years ago when the UN voted for a Jewish state in 1947, the Arab leaders told thier citizens to get out they would win “their’ land back. they didn’t succeeded and stil don’t after so many wars, the best thing they can do is accept the reality, which is the land of Israel is a fact and they have to accept it or get out , there are plenty of other Arab countries to choose from
And ask your leaders to spend the money they receiving to send to the population and not to fill their pockets with it

No matter what happened here, the people who are actually responsible got away scot free. Its always someone else HEZBOLLAH,HAMAS,LTTE,IRA you name it. But who gets killed in the crossfire. Its always the innocents, people who had nothing to do with this. Even in their deaths they are not left alone. They are held up as political postcards used by all and sundry for their own mean ends. What have we come to ??? MY HEART WEEPS MY SOUL BLEEDS. O Jesus, O Allah What are your children doing. Please save us from self extermination.
