Thu Jul 20 2006 (Updated 07/21/06)As World Evacuates Thousands... What About the Lebanese
Thu Jul 20 2006 (Updated 07/21/06)Lebanese Have Nowhere To Go
Nations around the world are struggling to evacuate tens of thousands of their citizens from Lebanon as Israel continues its bombardment of the country. Britain, along with other European countries and the United States, is using Cyprus as the hub of their operations for full-scale evacuations as the fighting intensifies.
Jonathan Cook writes for Electronic Lebanon: "If anyone doubted the racism of our Western media, here it was proudly on display. The BBC apparently considers their Beirut reporter's first duty to find out what meals HMS Gloucester's chef will be preparing for the evacuees. Lebanese and Palestinian civilians die unnoticed by the Western media (though not by the Arab channels) while we learn of onboard sleeping arrangements on the ship bound for Cyprus."
