Feminist Toronto: Wading into Lebanon waters

Excellent post by Feminist Toronto.

She quotes from The Great War for Civilisation: The Conquest of the Middle East by Robert Fisk.

Note that this book was written before Hezbollah kidnapped soldiers -- before Hamas became the government of Palestine.

"The same skewed semantics were applied to the July 1993 Israeli bombardment of southern Lebanon. In revenge for the killing of nine Israeli soldiers inside its occupation zone in Lebanon, Israel attacked the villages of southern Lebanon, killing more than 100 men, women and children -- and putting 300,000 refugees on the road to Beirut...And President Clinton's reaction? He blamed the Hizballah -- which killed the nine Israeli soldiers -- for all the deaths, then called on 'all sides' to exercise 'restraint'."
