Has the world forgotten Sabra and Shatila massacre?

Few days ago was the anniversary of the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington, but there’s another September tragedy the worldwide media has ignored— the bloody massacre of Palestinian refugees in Sabra and Shatila camps in Lebanon.

In September 1982, Lebanese Maronite Christian militias were sent by Israel to Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Beirut, Lebanon, to find PLO members and kill Palestinian refugees.

The Christian Phalangist group are reported to have murdered entire families in cold blood in the Palestinian refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila.

The massacre was apparently revenge for the assassination four days ago of the Christian President-elect, Bashir Gemayel.

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. An old way of rules for us that never was dismissed.
