Educating the world about the only true "occupation" in the ME

Reader comment on item: Signal to Syria: Straighten Up

Submitted by andrew rotter (United States), May 14, 2003 at 15:41

Read your article from a link on Frontpagemag.com. I am disheartened at the incessant references to the "occupied territories" in Israel as if it were fact, while Syria'a occupation of Lebanon is rarely if ever brought to light. I am heartened to see the questioning of the fallacy of the "occupation" in Israel but next to no one in the mainstream media will touch the brutal expulsion of Christians from southern Lebanon and current occupation by Syria... maybe you could?
