June 08 - Fierce fighting rocks Palestinian camp in Lebanon

By Nazih Siddiq

NAHR AL-BARED, Lebanon (Reuters) - Lebanese troops pounded al Qaeda-inspired militants dug in at a Palestinian refugee camp in north Lebanon on Friday after the gunmen refused demands they give themselves up.

Artillery and tanks blasted several areas of the squalid Nahr al-Bared camp, where Fatah al-Islam fighters have shown stiff resistance in nearly three weeks of often ferocious battles.

"A shell hit a house where 10 civilians were sheltering," camp resident Wissam Badran told Reuters by telephone. "I took out four people - a man, a woman and two children - from under the rubble whom I think are dead. Six people were wounded."

When Israel attacks terrorists in Gaza or Hezbollah during the past war in Lebanon to defend herself, and some civilians die because they are used by the cowardly terrorists as human shields, the world condems Israel in the most vitriolic tone. Israel is defending herself. When captured by Israel, terrorists are sent to jail.
When the Lebanese Army tries to extirpate the cancer of Al-Qaeda from her territory and blasts away terrorist and civilians alike, the world is mum, no one cares a shit.
When captured by Lebanon, or Jordan or Egypy, terrorists are condemned to death.
This is the show of the morally corrupt, hypocritical, judeophobic double standard of the world.

You will eventually have to face the consequences of your actions towards others as people tend to behave towards you as you have behaved towards others.
