Palestinians tar and feather Sharon with Sabra and Shatilla while ignoring the fact that it was Christian Phalange units which entered Sabra and Shatilla camps and murdered 800 people in revenge for the assassination of Lebanon’s president-elect Bashir Jemayel, by Habib Tanios Shartuni, who himself was a secret member of the pro-Syrian anti-Kataeb Party. Bashir Gemayel was the popular Lebanese Christian slated to be President of the new Lebanon, now that Israel had freed it of the PLO terrorists.
Incidentally, the Kahan Commission accused Sharon of failing to stop the Sabra and Shatilla massacre. Big difference between “failing to stop” and “causing”.
I wonder if most pro-Palestinians even know why Israel was in Lebanon in the first place. It had to do with a devastatingly deadly terrorist attack on May 30, 1972 at Israel’s international airport at Lod by three Japanese Red Army members, in a joint Japanese Red Army(JRA)/Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) operation, who carried out a machine gun and grenade attack in the arrivals terminal that killed 25 people–most of them Christian pilgrims–and injured another 80. These JRA members fled to Bekaa Valley, in Lebanon. Several Japanese Red Army leaders were given safe haven in Lebanon because they were seen as heroes for the Israeli airport attack and for their support of the “Palestinian” cause. Japan and Israel and three other countries went looking for the JRA murderers for years – one member, a female, Fusako Shigenobu, 55, was finally caught a couple of years ago.
The fact that Sharon won his libel suit against TIME Magazine should prove that Sharon was not and could not be smeared ever again over Sabra and Shatilla.
Some evidence as to why it was so hard to intercede the Sabra and Shatilla massacre and that it was Christian Phalange units who committed the murders, and why Israelis who were close by and near enough to have heard a possible massacre, but did not hear it, was revealed in a tenth anniversary broadcast by NPR, National Public Radio.
Shocking, considering NPR would produce such a broadcast. Nonetheless, the massacre was called the “Night of the Long Knives” because knives were the weapons the Christian Phalangist murderers chose because they could not be heard. No shots were fired. The massacres were committed by Phalange units carrying knives.
Yosef Dar’s book “Phalange Justice” exposes the Israel government annex which entirely exonerates Arik Sharon of any culpability for this massacre and condemns others of malfeasance of office, conflict of interest, not taking responsibility, etc. Sharon was NOT culpable.
In yet another book, “From Israel to Damascus: Lebanon, the Mystery of the Unknown” (if you want to read the book for free, it’s on the web – do a search on it because this book was officially banned by order of the minister of information Anwar El Khalil) by Robert Maroun Hatem, known as Cobra, he describes how Elie Hobeika, known as H.K. planned to destroy Lebanon so he could become a minister in the Pro-Syrian Lebanese structure.
Hobeika was responsible for killing Gemayel, ordering his men to “totally annihilate” everyone in the camps, and was instrumental in the fall of the Likud Government. He was protected from revenge reprisals by Hafez Assad.
Cobra describes in detail the tragedy of the Sabra and Shatilla massacres and the Syrian responsibility for the deaths as well as the innocence of Gen. Ariel Sharon and the Christians of the South Lebanese Army.
Hobeika said there were about 2000 terrorists still hiding in Sabra and Shatilla. Hobeika had a key elite force of 200 men high on regular and immoderate use of heroine and cocaine. Sharon ordered him to behave like a regular army, round up the terrorists left behind after the Israelis forced the evacuation of the PLO in August, 1982 to Tunisia.
This book is a complete eye-witness testimony and description of exactly what happened. Syria was behind it. It was discovered later and proven that Bashir Gemayel’s actual assassin, Habib Tanios Shartuni, was a secret member of the pro-Syrian anti-Kataeb Party.
Sharon’s visit to the Holy Mount in 2000 was only an excuse for anarchist Palestinians to start an indefensible war – which was planned by the anarchist Palestinian’s own weakest link himself – the Egyptian born, Arafat – as early as June 2000, three months before Sharon legally, rightfully, and legitimately walked near his Temple in his own legal and legitimate country, Israel.
Considering the fact that Arafat called upon his anarchist Palestinian followers to war while Barak was still leading Israel in the “peace” talks proves that anarchist Palestinians do not and never did want to live in peace with any Jew, ever.
There you have it. Oh Unevolved, thy name is Palestinian.
