Remember: Massaker von Sabra und Schatila


On 16 September 1982,

under the watchful eye of their Israeli allies

who had encircled the area,

Lebanese Christian militiamen entered

Beirut’s Sabra and Shatila refugee camps

bent on revenge for the assassination

of their leader Bashir Gemayel.

There followed a three-day

orgy of rape and slaughter

that left hundreds,

possibly thousands, of innocent civilians dead

in what is considered

the bloodiest single incident

of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Israel - Zitat des Tages

 We must give up Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem and return to the core of the territory that is the State of Israel prior to 1967, with minor corrections dictated by the reality created since then.
