"He Who Taketh by the Sword, is Taken by The Sword"
It feels strange to sit here in peaceful Europe and dissect the situation in the Middle-East, but I feel it is my duty as a Lebanese person to get as involved as possible.
Some of you might wonder what I am doing on a predominately Israeli website, well, let me explain, I have two reasons for doing this, the love of MY country and also to help Israel, who are also victims of Palestinian terror.
Certain schools of thought say that Lebanon (when I say Lebanon, I mean a free and sovereign one, free of Syrian dictatorship and weak politicians that are running the place now.) and Israel, share common enemies and have been natural, historical and logical allies, and I must say I proudly believe in the friendship between our two countries, as that is the only thing that will assure our survival in this terror infested region.
Let me be clear that I am here for a very patriotic reason, my love for Lebanon is higher than any force and by writing this I am trying to bring forth Lebanon’s cause, and that of the great Etienne Sakr, chairman of The Guardians of the Cedar (www.gotc.org) and very active member of the TSADAL(south Lebanon army) who helped Israel secure our southern borders for Iranian terror.
He always believed that the relationship between Israel and Lebanon should be amicable and one of helping each other out as two countries free of foreign invasion and terror from neighboring Islamic Arabic countries.
When the Cairo agreement was signed on November 3d 1969, with the help of a traitor named Gen. emile Boustani and Arafat, then a refugee, the future of Lebanon was signed off to Arabism, and the lives of many innocent victims were given away to a bunch of terrorist that have no country, the "Thank You" Lebanon got for giving these animals a safe place to live, where they could live by their own rules, was a massacre on the Christian people, even muslims. Many people would think that a guest in someone’s house would be humble, instead they killed the host, raped his wife and pillaged his home.
Let me tell you about the story of Damour, a little town that was attacked by the Palestinians and Syrians, where countless numbers of children where maimed alive and then killed, women raped, fathers killed in front of their families.
On 9 January 1976, three days after Epiphany, a priest was traditionally blessing houses, going from house to house offering the protection of God, when a bullet shot past his ear, followed by heavy machinegun fire, he soon noticed that Damour was surrounded by the forces of Sa’iqa, consisting of 16,000 Palestinians and Syrians, and units of the Mourabitoun and some fifteen other militias, reinforced by mercenaries from Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and a contingent of Libyans, all under the orders of Yasser Arafat.
the priest had a fair idea of who it was and contacted a local Muslim Sheik, to see if he could do anything to stop it, and this was his answer: ‘I can do nothing,’ he was told ‘They want to harm you. It is the Palestinians. I cannot stop them.'
" The father then realizing that the situation was escalating, he contacted some politicians he knew, one of which was Kamal Jumblatt, a noted Druze politician whose political role was assured by Christian votes from Damour itself:
"Father,’ Jumblatt said, ‘I can do nothing for you, because it depends on Yasser Arafat.’ He gave Arafat’s phone number to the priest.
When the priest called Arafat’s number, one of his henchmen answered, and reassured the priest that they didn’t ant to harm them, they are just destroying them for strategically reasons..( what other answer would you expect of a Palestinian terrorist????), after insisting to speak to Arafat, his helper said that the PLO headquarters would tell the fighters to stop shooting, and then they hung up.
Needless to say that the promise wasn’t kept and the attack on Damour carried on....
Around 11h00 at night, the town was still being shot at, and half an hour later, the electricity and water were cut off, followed by the invasion of Damour, first a group of Saiqa men attacked houses massacring around 50 people, and then the atrocities began, killing raping , maiming and all sorts of acts only fit for Palestinians.
The Priest heard screaming and went out into the street. Women came running to him in their nightdresses, ‘tearing their hair, and shouting "They are slaughtering us!" The survivors, deserting that end of the town, moved into the area round the next church. The invaders then occupied the part of the town they had taken. Father Labaky describes the scene:
'In the morning I managed to get to the one house despite the shelling to bring out some of the corpses. And I remember something which still frightens me. An entire family had been killed, the Can’an family, four children all dead, and the mother, the father, and the grandfather. The mother was still hugging one of the children. And she was pregnant. The eyes of the children were gone and their limbs were cut off. No legs and no arms. It was awful. We took them away in a banana truck. And who carried the corpses with me? The only survivor, the brother of the man. His name is Samir Can’an. He carried with me the remains of his brother, his father, his sister-in-law and the poor children. We buried them in the cemetery, under the shells of the PLO. And while I was burying them, more corpses were found in the street.'
The town then tried to defend itself, with young men aged 16 and up were arming themselves with hunting rifles, and managed to hold out for 12 days,
More words from the priest:
'The attack took place from the mountain behind. It was an apocalypse. They were coming, thousands and thousands, shouting ‘Allah Akbar! God is great! Let us attack them for the Arabs, let us offer a holocaust to Mohammad ‘And they were slaughtering everyone in their path, men, women and children.'
Whole families were killed in their homes. Many women were gang-raped, and few of them left alive afterwards. One woman saved her adolescent daughter from rape by smearing her face with washing blue to make her look repulsive. As the atrocities were perpetrated, the invaders themselves took photographs and later offered the pictures for sale to European newspapers.
That is just a fraction of what happened in Damour, im sure no word exists to really describe what happened , and I have made it a goal to hold Arafat responsible.
With the above statement, which is totally my own opinion, and isn’t necessarily the thought and feelings of the GOTC or any other Lebanese Opposition group or person, I reach the end of my article, hoping to have informed you enough, and looking forward to helping your Cause in the quest to make our Cause come alive,
in the name of all the martyrs that fell to Palestinian and Islamic terror, in the name of all the innocent Israeli civilians killed by homicide bombers,
