to do what he knew they were capable of doing. Sharon and Eitan were well aware of the hatred of the falangists for the Palestinians. Immediately following Bachir Gemayel's assassination Sharon accused the PLO of being responsible for it. Of course he had no proof. His remark was meant to increase the falangist thirst for revenge. On Thursday September 16 1982 Sharon and Eytan met with US ambassador Lewis and Morris Draper, the American diplomat stationed in Lebanon at the time. Draper on hearing of Sharon's plan to send the falangists into the Palestinian camps was horrified as he knew the potential disastrous consequences. At that meeting Eytan described the falangists: "They don't have a strong command... They're obsessed with the idea of revenge.... I'm telling you that some of their commanders visited me, and I could see in their eyes that it's going to be a relentless slaughter.." At that very moment, 5 p.m., the falangists moved into the camps through Israeli lines!!!
