Genocide, Israeli-style - also known as self-defense
IN AN abandoned parking station on the outskirts of Beirut, about 4000 people have taken refuge four storeys underground. There is no sunlight, no fresh air, no phone signal.The same people that our Zionist controlled media would have you believe are "terrorists" are the only ones IN THE WORLD helping their countrymen at a time when they themselves are fighting for their lives.
The place is cut off, except for a staircase wide enough for one person at a time. Five giant air-conditioners circulate the stale air, which reeks of human waste. "People should not have to live here. It's inhumane," said one refugee, Raed Abbas. "We're like the walking dead, already buried underground even though we're still alive."
All around him, people were sprawled out on foam mattresses, straw mats and polyester blankets on Wednesday. Sick-looking children held on to mothers. Everyone seemed dazed.
Filling this garage with refugees is among the extreme measures Lebanese officials are taking to deal with the displacement of 500,000 people - one-eighth of the country's population - since fighting began on July 12.
The displaced are causing a severe strain on the country. The Government has been slow to deliver aid to those who fled their homes. ****Hezbollah and another Shiite party, Amal, stepped into the void.**** They dispatched hundreds of young men to schools and community centres throughout Beirut to distribute food, water and medicine to the refugees.
Meanwhile, Israeli cowards continue to target and bomb everyone in sight.
At the garage, there is no one from the Government on hand. Instead, there are Hezbollah members at the entrance warning refugees not to idle for long - claiming unseen Israeli drones overhead would notice people gathering and perhaps pinpoint the location to be bombed.Many of these people most likely will die.
This is Israeli genocide - but it's known as 'self-defense.'
