Sabra And Shatila - On Massacres, Atrocities And Holocausts :: from www.uruknet.info :: news from occupied Iraq - it: "It happened twenty-five years ago ­ 16 September 1982. A massacre so awful that people who know about it cannot forget it. The photos are gruesome reminders ­ charred, decapitated, indecently violated corpses, the smell of rotting flesh, still as foul to those who remember it as when they were recoiling from it all those years ago. For the victims and the handful of survivors, it was a 36-hour holocaust without mercy. It was deliberate, it was planned and it was overseen. But to this day, the killers have gone unpunished."

Both fluent in English – Nadia, who was born in Montpellier, also speaks French – they were the kind of well-educated, modern Iraqis who should have been the driving force behind a new secular democracy. Yet Mohammed is believed dead at the hands of kidnappers who seized the whole family, and Nadia is living the miserable half-life of the exile with their two children in Jordan."

Bill Maher: Corporate “Comic” and Shill for the Official 9/11 Fable : Another Day in the Empire

Bill Maher: Corporate “Comic” and Shill for the Official 9/11 Fable : Another Day in the Empire: "I’m not sure why I bothered to watch the video posted on Raw Story, as the outcome was wholly predictable. “Crazy people who still think the government brought down the Twin Towers in a controlled explosion have to stop pretending that I’m the one who’s being naive,” joked Bill Maher on HBO, the “vertically integrated” supposed “entertainment” corporation owned by Time Warner. “How big a lunatic do you have to be to watch two giant airliners packed with jet fuel slam into buildings on live TV, igniting a massive inferno that burned for two hours, and then think ‘Well, if you believe that was the cause…’ Stop asking me to raise this ridiculous topic on the show and start asking your doctor if Paxil is right for you.”
