nahr el bared news report

it’s not a great report–not enough context–historically, politically–for one thing. no mention of those who colluded to destroy the homes of 31,000 palestinian refugees in this camp. no mention of the fact that many of the families had been expelled from their homes in 1948 by jewish colonists in palestine, by lebanese militias in refugee camps like tell al za’atar. no mention of the fact that this is not some al qae’da organization: it was a creation of dick cheney, saudi prince bandar, sa’ad hariri. but it is the first video images i’ve seen on the news given that the lebanese army has forbidden any journalists to go inside; as far as i know that policy is still in effect so i wonder how al jazeera got inside.
