    I'm afraid you might be right, Tamir. But what puzzles me: if most Lebanese care so little for the Palestinians, then why does Hezbollah claim that they fight in the interest of the Palestinians, and that their final aim is to liberate Al Quds? (look at their logo and their propaganda). I've never understood why the Lebanese shi'ites, after first killing thousands of Palestinians during the Lebanese cival war in the 1980's, would now be interested in "liberating Palestine". Especially considering the fact that there are hardly any shia among the Palestinans. And if they would really be so concerned for the Palestinians, then why don't they pressurize the Lebanese government into offering citizenship to the Palestinan refugees in Lebanon? I'm interested in your response (as well as Lebs!)

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
