Refugees Seek Refuge

The bitter irony of the life of the Palestinian people. Driven from their homes by a people driven from their homes. Oppressed by the oppressed.

Now in northern Lebanon, the Lebanese army shells a Palestinian refugee camp. And Palestinian refugees flee -- refugees from the refuge. Could there be a better summation of our time?

By the way, when you hear, see, read a news account on NPR, CNN, the BBC, the New York Times, check to see whether they mention any of the following:
1. That the residents of the camp are Palestinians.
2. That the Lebanese army is forbidden to enter the camp, so they shell because that's 'okay'.
3. That the Palestians are refugees from the Israelis, dispossessed in 1948, 1967, and ever since.
