16 September 1982. 6:00 p.m. The massacre begins...

Sabra and Shatila.
Twenty five years already.
Nobody was prosecuted.
Nobody received compensation.
The Lebanese "justice" does not want justice.

I will not forget.

In actual fact, GS, some of the pepetrators and their accomplices have moved on to greater and higher status.. never mind prosecution and being held to account...
Such is 'justice' in our Region..

Spot on, my friend the Syrian Brit. Sharon went back to politics (contrary to the recommendations of the Kahan Commission,) Hobeika became a minister, and some of the killers are enjoying a happy life. I heard that Geagea participated in the killing, but then others claim that he was in Tripoli at the time. Whatever the case, he endorsed and accepted the role of his militiamen in the massacre.

"Justice" indeed. OK, let's put prosecution aside. What about simple commemoration? Lebanon didn't hold any official commemoration for the massacre while there were masses for Bashir Gemayel. What do you call that? Selective memory?
