Connecting the dots: Terror, Resistance, Extremism, Capitalism, Zionism….

The book of Robert Fisk “Afflictions of a Nation” and who covered the civil war of Lebanon for nine years, is a fantastic document for generations to come.,

Robert Fisk will be missed. He was one of the foreign reporters to be on the site of the massacres in the camps of  Sabra and Chatila in Beirut in 1982.

These camps had civilian Palestinians,downtrodden Lebanese… after the Palestinians fighters vacated to Tunisia and the USA promised the safety and security of the camps

Fisk witnessed the horrors and stench in the camps after 3 nights and 2 days of slaughter-hood and the mass grave that Israel army excavated in the Sport Stadium, pouring loads of chalk on layers after layers of dead bodies.

I wonder if those running and playing in the stadium realize they are exercising on thousands of dead bodies buried underneath them.

Although this civil war was very confusing, intricate, and complex Fisk kept covering the facts and events and interviewing people in distress.

From these documents, we can comprehend the genesis of many factions, events, and changes in political policies and strategies by States involved in the Lebanese civil war,  even though Fisk was overwhelmed and could not connect the dots at the time as a correspondent to The Times.

Fisk covered almost all war disasters, described the barbarity in minute details, in Lebanon and Ireland, and traveled under fire and confronted belligerent factions and road blocks.

Fisk last two years in Lebanon were plagued by frequent string of abductions of foreigners, especially US and French correspondents, media professionals, and other specialties.

Fisk tried his best to keep track of and search for the abducted companions…

Note: I posted several article on the Sabra and Chatila massacres. One of them is a thorough account of an Israeli Journalist/reporter, from A to Z
