Here is a message I received almost a week after it was sent.

WARNING: The message contains strong language to describe the
situation from armless people on the receiving end of the "New
World Order" funded by US tax payers to the tune of USA $6
billion every year.

Subject: Down but not out!


.... I will hopefully be in the states around the 1st week of
July 1996 to join a research program.

     This is the situation:

We are ready to evacuate immediately, I think!!! Things here are
NOT improving. I do not know how much longer we can communicate -
be it thru e-mail or phone. The Israeli's are shelling nothing
but civilian targets. They hit not a single Hizbullah target.

The sea ports are closed because of Israeli gunboats warding off
ships!! They shot three of the power stations, rendering one of
them totally nonfunctional. According to the new, one of them has
attained damages worth USA $3 millions.

They are also shooting the telephone switchboards. They have
gunned one of the main ones, and off and on they have destroyed
major telephone cables around the country. I know that at least
18000 phones are out! Things are really NOT optimistic here.

Schools have been shut down for at least one more week. I do not
know if my uni will open. Please distribute this message please
to as many people as you can; it is important that they see the

Today..... they attacked a UN center. It was a bomb shelter. They
massacred every soul in there - mentally and physically. Hundreds
of armless, helpless, hungry people were hiding in two tents. The
Israeli's attacked the base. People started fleeing into the
shelters, but they did not make it on time. The seen was a
giagantic shish kabab scene!!!! Bodies were charcoaled.... I
actually saw some guts, intestines, and other gross things.....
it was an open anatomy class, for heaven's sake....  my girlfriend
burst into tears... so did my mom!!!  Who is the attacker here? A
motherfucker behind a tank or a child who is just looking for food
and shelter???? The folks from the south are all packed in
schools in Beirut.  Things are not sanitary at all. Diseases are
beginning to spread! For God's sake who is the aggressor!?!?!?

They showed us how the Israelis take a moment of silence for the
massacre of the Jews in Germany!!!!!! What is this.... some kind
of avenge?!?! We have to pay for it??!? Half a million people
were forced out of their homes because their presence would
threaten the heavily armed army of Israel.....  the tanks are
vulnerable to an attack from young children!!! Children are
lethal...... we should abolish them....eh??????  Man...  the
situation is not improving.  What is the world after...
destroying Lebanon's new infrastructure because it could beat
Israel's economy in a few years????  Is it after taking away the
Arab's arsenal and money??

If Syria were to move, the American Air Force and the Israeli Air
Force would take it as an attack and a breach of peace!!!!!!!

They take our land....  and call us aggressors.  They say that if
we stop attacking them with a few guerilla soldiers, they would
leave..... is this preposterous or what???  You occupy my house
and I ask to leave, but you refuse to because I am hitting
you?!??!?  Well.....  leave my house and I will not attack you.
You just ought to see the brains of 3 day old splattered all over
the blanket!!!  His head lost its top!!!!

Literally!!!!  The 3-day-old had no top to his head....  his
brains were over the blanker and on the floor.  They wiped out 2
families of 12 people in one building......  their argument....
Hizbullah fired a Katyusha from that area.....  bullshit!!!!
Since the beginning of the attacks, the Israeli army has hit
nothing....  NOTHING...  but civilian targets.....  An ambulance
with 4 children and old folks was hit by a rocket from a
plane....  their excuse:  The driver was Hizbullah..... now give
me a break!!!!!!  WE ARE THE KILLERS....WE OWN THE HI-TECH
STUFF.....  For God's sake, we do not even have an
airforce!!!!!!! We have one bloody fucked up jet.... just

Tomorrow morning I am taking my car to all the near grocery
stores to buy as much baby milk as the car can carry and
distribute it all to the schools that have lactating children or
children in need of milk. Our academic year has been disrupted
because the southerners have been placed in schools.

Take care.

Food for thought?: "In politics, as in the snake oil business, it
pays to have a short memory and a chameleon-like quality. That is
why the relationship between a journalist and a politician should
be like the one between a dog and a lamp-post".
But who is doing what to whom? One wonders ;-)
