The Lebanon Government Destroys An Entire Town
This Camp Is 12 Miles North Of Tripoli
This Was Home To 30,000 Palestinian Refugees
This Place Has Been Shelled For Eighty Days
They Are Chasing 100 Bandits
The Imaginary Zionist Villains In The Camp
In The End They Will Level The Town
What Is Happening?
The Lebanese army, supplied by America, is destroying the Palestine refugee camp of Nahr Al-Bared, and the reason given is that a hundred Fatah Al-Islam are using the camp as a refugee. That's like leveling Cape Cod because eighty Hari Krishna's robbed a bank, and hid in a downtown warehouse.
Nahr Al-Bared was a town of 30,000, with it's own police force. If these bandits existed, the town would have gladly turned them in, versus seeing their homes, culture, and way of life destroyed.
CNN International anchor Hala Gorani asked Seymour Hersh last month.
HERSH: Well, the United States was deeply involved. This was a covert operation that Bandar ran with us. Don’t forget, if you remember, you know, we got into the war in Afghanistan with supporting Osama bin Laden, the mujahadin back in the late 1980s with Bandar and with people like Elliott Abrams around, the idea being that the Saudis promised us they could control—they could control the jihadists so we spent a lot of money and time, the United States in the late 1980s using and supporting the jihadists to help us beat the Russians in Afghanistan and they turned on us. And we have the same pattern, not as if there’s any lessons learned. It’s the same pattern, using the Saudis again to support jihadists, Saudis assuring us they can control these various group, the groups like the one that is in contact right now in Tripoli with the government.
GORANI: Sure, but the mujahadin in the ’80s was one era. Why would it be in the best interest of the United States of America right now to indirectly even if it is indirect empower these jihadi movements that are extremists that fight to the death in these Palestinian camps? Doesn’t it go against the interests not only of the Senora government but also of America and Lebanon now?
HERSH: The enemy of our enemy is our friend, much as the jihadist groups in Lebanon were also there to go after Nasrullah. Hezbollah, if you remember, last year defeated Israel, whether the Israelis want to acknowledge it, so you have in Hezbollah, a major threat to the American—look, the American role is very simple. Condoleezza Rice, the secretary of state, has been very articulate about it. We’re in the business now of supporting the Sunnis anywhere we can against the Shia, against the Shia in Iran, against the Shia in Lebanon, that is Nasrullah. Civil war. We’re in a business of creating in some places, Lebanon in particular, a sectarian violence.
