    Syrian/Palestinian genocide in Lebanon
    Victims: between 100,000 and 300,000​

    CHRISTIANS UNDER MUSLIM RULE
    The Syrian Occupation of Lebanon
    ... Operating however transparently under the name and guise of the Arab Deterrent Force authorized by the Riyadh Summit in October 1976, Syrian troops acted to disarm some Lebanese militias at the same time that the national army of Lebanon disintegrated to the diminutive size of 3,000 troops. By 1977, the number of Syrian troops exceeded 30,000, with over 200 tanks. After fighting the Palestinian and other leftist forces, Druzes and Sunnis in particular, the Syrian army then confronted the Christian Lebanese Forces. Indeed, if Syria was to control and pacify Lebanon, it would of necessity need to reduce the core Christian community that gave Lebanon its special national distinction. For three months, during “the 100 Days War” in mid-1978, Syria bombarded Christian East Beirut, specifically Ashrafiyya, which led to the flight of 300,000 people; at this time Syrian forces were also capturing Batroun and Besharre areas in the heart of the mountain area. A flood of Christian refugees and the execution of many Lebanese civilians were the direct result at this stage of the intensification and extension of Syria’s ruthless conquest of Lebanon.

    In the 1980s, Syria further expanded its military control in the areas of Zahle, Aley, Nabatiyeh, and Jezzine, prior to the ultimate military capture of the presidential palace at Ba’abda, southeast of Beirut on October 13, 1990. In that final confrontation Syrian forces defeated Lebanese Army units under the command of General Michel Aoun, who had failed in his self-declared “war of liberation”. Syrian military occupation of Lebanon, therefore, incorporated the entire country with the exception of the southern “security zone” under the control of the Israeli Army (IDF) and its Southern Lebanese Army (SLA) ally.
    One reliable source suggests that the Syrians were responsible for the deaths of approximately 100,000 Lebanese and the flight of about a half a million people from the country.

    ...courage to say the truth.
    The truth is : Syria wants to annex Lebanon. Syria and the Palestinians have destroyed Lebanon. Syria and the Palestinians are responsible for the death of 300000 Lebanese.

    It's called "Peaceful Islam."

    From a testimony:

    Arafat was ruthless not only with the Lebanese citizens but with the Palestinian Arabs too. In January, 1976 during the Christians' attack on Tall al Za'tar refugee camp the PLO tried to prevent the people in the camp from leaving. "Conditions within the camp became critical, with acute shortages of food and water, as bombardment continued day after day. The ideal of self sacrifice, imposed on the civilians by a leadership which itself took no risks, was never known to be the choice of the unhappy people themselves. And not all of the fighters who fell with their guns in their hands were cut down by the fire of the Christians. Some who tried to surrender or escape from the camp were shot in the back by their own comrades" (133). The high command in the PLO headquarters in West Beirut "not only refused to let the Palestinians leave the camp, or let the fighters surrender in order to save them all from hell, but insisted that the entire population, including the children, were to be sacrificed"

    I thought you told us there isn't such a thing as Palestinians. So it can't be.

    I didn't say that, in any case, if you wish: Those that are called palestinians (since the 1960's). Still, most grandparents were immigrants, not natives there.

    If you believe that then there is no such thing as Palestinians. I had family there way before the late 1800s

    Of course there were some people there, immigrants came back and forth (many also left, and other immigrants replaced them) from Egypt and Houran, and Yemen, etc., but in the 1800s, they were never regarded by the outside or by themselves as a separated identity...

    Do you have any proof of what they were referred to as? So how does this make Jewish immigrants from Europe and elsewhere citizens of the land? Regardless of them being migrants. Just their Jewish identity gives them citizenship.

    You are totally missing the point. It is only the Palestinian side that keep saying (lying) that they are "all" indigenous... In order to delegitimize Jews from their historic land.
