The Sabra and Chatilla massacre was perpetrated by Christian Phallangists following the murder of their leader Bashir Jumayel. It was part of the intercine war in Lebanon which began with the Syrian invasion in 1975 which killed off about 70 thousand Lebanese, and facilitated the terrorist establishment of Yassir Arafat in southern Lebanon which terrorised northern Israel.

Sharon had nothing to do with the Massacre except for his position as the Minister of defense of Israel at the time. Israel's forces were only one factor in a country then torn apart between Druze, Sunni, Shia, Syrian, Christian Maronite forces, all killing each other with abandon as Iran was making its first inroads with Hizzballah proxies. Blaming the Jews for other people's ills is a time hobored tradition of all antisemites, who generally prefer dead Jews to live ones. Show me one film of israeli soldiers being involved in that inter-Arab massacre. It does not exist unless as antisemitic propaganda akin to Der Shturmer. Ask Tom Friedman if he actually winessed jewish troops in those "camps".

Look at the present Lebanese "government" and you will see nothing has changed. The true ruler of Lebanon is Hassan Nassrallah, at the behest ofn Tehran, the man who inititated the massive bombardment of Israel with thousands of rockets loosely aimed at civilians. Did you write an op-ed about this war-crime?
