Lebanese Army Shells Refugee Camp

Let me say what the media would be saying if the military was the Israeli one: Racist murderers! Disgusting how these poor misunderstood Palestinians are mistreated. They only robbed a bank and then attacked the police and killed bunches of people. They are being killed for land! They are innocent! Kill the Jews! Oh, wait, I think I was getting carried away.

Amazing how the media can ignore Arabs killing Palestinian terrorists, but not the Israelis. Of course, the Palestinian "refugees" live in the same shacks their parents set up four or more decades ago. Sound more like villages than camps! When will the hypocrisy end?

iWon News - Lebanese Army Shells Refugee Camp: "Lebanese troops pounded a Palestinian refugee camp with artillery and tank fire for a second day Monday, raising huge columns of smoke as they battled a militant group suspected of ties to al-Qaida in the worst violence since the end of the 1975-90 civil war.

Nearly 50 combatants were killed in the first day of fighting Sunday, but it was not known how many civilians have been killed inside the Nahr el-Bared camp on the outskirts of the northern port city of Tripoli.

Palestinian officials in the camp reported at least nine civilians were killed Monday, along with 40 wounded. The figures could not be confirmed because emergency workers or security officials have not been able to get in.

The White House said it supports Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora's efforts to deal with fighting, and the State Department defended the Lebanese army, saying it was working in a 'legitimate manner' against 'provocations by violent extremists' operating in the camp."
