IN WHICH WILL BE FOUND WHAT IS SET FORTH THEREIN

IN TODAY'S NEWS

Going into the weekend, Israel was warning all citizens of southern Lebanon that they should leave their homes and evacuate the area.

Yesterday, Israeli forces, in at least six incidents, fired upon people who were following the warnings and evacuating. In one episode, an Israeli helicopter hit a minivan full of innocent evacuees in a missile strike.


On another issue, does anybody besides me find this suspect? Following the assasination of a major political leader in Lebanon just months ago, the US and the world demanded, quite rightly, that Syria remove all its troops from Lebanon. So they did (though they are suspected of leaving agents behind). So there were no Syrian army forces in Lebanon when Israel decided to respond to the Hezbollah outrage by invading and bombing.

Coincidence? Perhaps . . .

i really wouldn't be surprised at all. . .though the thought of syrian troops being in lebanon, and responding to israel when they first began the bombings, is somewhat frightening.

as for the earlier jenin post, check this out:

after reading through it, i shudder to think what the lebanese will face in the coming weeks and months. you are right Aldon — we've seen it once, and we will see it again.
