Yet another Massacre...

It's 1996 all over again. We woke up this morning on a new massacre. 55 people, 37 of which are children, have been brutally killed after Israeli missiles targeted a building in which refugees have been hiding from the war.

Anger, grief, feeling of helplessness and most of all feeling of disgust are some of many emotions we are all feeling at once towards how things are progressing in the region. Every night we go to sleep hoping that next day will be better, that we will finally see a light of hope to end this madness, only to wake up the other day seeing more and more innocent people being killed, and our beloved Lebanon in grief and sadness.

People here can't even look at each other; we just can't take it anymore. This is far than anyone could stand. Nothing can justify death if children in such brutality, nothing can explain such attacks on innocent angles. The pictures of these killed kids are hunting us every single moment.

In Lebanon, everybody is wondering what the world has come to, how come everybody sees such massacres and yet sit still and do nothing???!! How can we believe the Israelis (with their laser-guided missiles and surveillance airplanes) when they say that they didn't know there were refugees in that building????

Reporters from all over the world were shocked, heart broken and in tears as they are reporting the massacre, everybody is just disgust. This is NOT only a war; it’s a genocide against humanity.

Here in Tripoli. People are full with rage, grief, sadness and so mixed up emotions. When will this come to an end? When will we gain our life back? Who will compensate for all this destruction and the souls that have been gone?

To all international powers, STOP this massacre, STOP this genocide, STOP this madness……

Bullshit. The building collapsed 8 hours after it was hit, and the collapse is what caused the casualties. The collapse was caused by a stockpile of missiles, and to quote the israeli ambassador to the u.n. If you go to sleep with a missile, chances are you wont wake up.
