History lesson: Nabatieh, Lebanon
Prof. AbuKhalil, a staunch revealer of truth and intellectual interpreter of events posted this yesterday:
In 1974-1975, the labor government of Shimon Peres and Itzhak Rabin ordered massive bombing raids against the camp and the bombing raids were so incinerating that it was bombed out of existence, literally. In December 1975, Israeli fighter jets bombed the camp and there was nothing left whatsoever. This is the other history of Israel that most Americans are ignorant about.
As usual, AbuKhalil's tells a story without a beginning, without a cause, and without a context, and allows himself the liberality of a fiction-writer's poetic licence, leaving the impression
that one fine morning in 1974, Shimon Peres and Itzhak Rabin woke up and decided to instruct the IAF to fly over Nabatieh refugee camp and bomb it to kingdom come, just like that, out of some irresistibly sadistic and irrational motivation.
Here is the real record of events, for those interested in truth:
Israeli planes have bombed seven Palestinian refugee camps and villages in southern Lebanon killing at least 27 people and leaving 138 injured.
The attack was in retaliation for yesterday's hostage crisis at a school in Ma'alot near the Lebanon border in which 18 teenagers were killed and 70 were wounded.
Worst hit by the Israeli fighter-bombers were the crowded refugee camps of Ein El Helweh near the city of Sidon and Nabatieh.
An official announcement from the Israeli Defence Force said the planes had been aiming at offices and training bases used by the Popular Democratic Front, led by Nayef Hawatmeh, and the Popular Front under Ahmed Jibril.
The PDF was behind the killing of the schoolchildren at Ma'alot - and the Popular Front planned the shooting of 16 civilians in Kiryat Shemona on 10 April.
Two nights ago, three Palestinian Arabs dressed as Israeli soldiers took over the school at Ma'alot.
There were more than 100 children aged between 14 and 16 sleeping there on the floor after a day's hiking in the region. Some managed to escape through an open door.
The Israeli Government agreed to the hostage-takers' demands to release 26 political prisoners, including a Japanese national involved in the Lod airport massacre.
But negotiations fell apart when the hostage-takers did not receive a coded message they were waiting for from Damascus.
On 15 May at 1745 local time - 15 minutes before they had said they would kill all the children if their demands were not met - Israeli soldiers raided the school building.
Eighteen children and the three Palestinians were killed in a bloody gun battle.

Such is the kind of information, thinking and truth readers can expect from the website of this bona fide professor who teaches at an American university of good standing. This is the kind of teacher entrusted with the enlightenment and education of innocent minds.
