    People who ought to know better, still claim Sharon as the mass murderer of the 400 Moslems in Sabra and Shatila. Elie Hubeika and his Falange group were the ones doing the massacre. Sharon was the schmuck who thought the Arabs would behave themselves - yeah right, so he did nothing. When the Israelis realized what was going on, they stopped it but it was too late, yet Sharon got blamed. In Rwanda, 500 000 Tutsis and a few Hutus got slaughtered by Hutus due to the absolute wilful connivance of the UN, do we hear "Mass Murderer Kofi Annan"? Double standard always for Israel. To show what idiots Arabs are, Elie Hubeika was never charged or put on trail for the massacre of Sabra and Shatila, but left-wing fools still blame Sharon.
