When the Israelis do this, we scream at the injustice, but when the Lebanese army does it we applaud them.

 “In the first three days of the recent events involving the Lebanese army and Fateh el-Islam in the Nahr el-Bared camp, the Lebanese army committed what would amount to war crimes in a similar fashion to that of the Israeli army in Gaza and in Lebanon last summer, firing on a civilian population indiscriminately. When the Israelis do this, we scream at the injustice, but when the Lebanese army does it we applaud them. These are double standards.” Electronic Lebanon: Cheering to the beat of the Palestinians’ misery

What can I say? The fighting wasn’t against Fateh al-Islam. The fighting was against our homes. Our homes were destroyed. If you were to go inside the camp, and see the camp for yourself, you would say the same. No homes [are] left.

  1. Oh come on now. The Lebanese Army ensured safe exist for 25,000 people from the camp. Fatah al Islam fired on those trying to flee. Give me a break.

  2. The Lebanese army should not have been shelling a camp full of civilians and should not have cut off its power and water. This is collective punishment and is a crime, nothing you can say can justify it. They “ensured a safe exit” is a nice way of saying they shelled a city creating a living hell and 25,000 were made refugees fleeing for their lives.
