The predicament of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon 
Ramzy Baroud, Ma’an News Agency 6/28/2012
      When Lebanese security reportedly killed 18-year-old Ahmad al-Qasim over a documentation dispute in the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp, the camp’s Palestinian refugee population erupted in anger and dismay.
     Within a few days of the June 15 incident, the outrage had spread and more refugees were killed. Fouad Muhiedeen Lubany was killed on June 18, as a crowd of mourning refugees attempted to bury the first victim of Nahr al-Bared, near Tripoli in the north. Another victim of the violence was Khaled al-Youssef, who was shot in Ein al-Hilweh refugee camp, near Saida, about 30 miles south of Beirut. More Palestinians were reportedly injured, along with three Lebanese security officers.
     Palestinian refugees in Lebanon exist on the margins of a larger political question concerning the country’s irreconcilable sectarian, factional and familial divides. This makes it somewhat difficult to place the tragedy of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon within a single political context. Lebanon’s enduring conflicts and political alliances are in a constant state of flux. So when such events concerning Palestinian refugees in Lebanon take place, the issue becomes almost entirely hostage to political considerations and hyped factional sensitivities.
     Instead of attempting to uncover the best way to tackle the underpinnings of such dramas, or examining the relationship between economic, social and other forms of alienation and political violence, the priority repeatedly revolves around trying to cover the festering problem.
     The problem, however, will not disappear on its own. Some 450,000 United Nations-registered refugees live in Lebanon. They subsist in poverty, living in 12 concentration camp-like physical entities. They are denied basic rights and lack even nominal political horizons….more.. e-mail

Church of the Nativity sanctuary seekers still in exile after 10 years. Why? 
Stuart Littlewood, Redress 6/29/2012
      The election of Muhammad Mursi as Egypt’s president momentarily threw a spotlight on the long-forgotten Palestinians exiled to Gaza after the Israelis’ infamous siege of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem in the West Bank 10 years ago.
     Still kicking their heels in Gaza the exiles called on Mursi to continue efforts to end the squabble between political rivals Hamas in Gaza and Fatah in the West Bank. They were optimistic that the new Egyptian president would work towards easing Israel’s blockade on the Gaza Strip and press for Palestinians rights, including the right of exiles to return home.
     It is expected Mursi will at least allow greater freedom to travel across Gaza’s Rafah crossing into Egypt, the besieged enclave’s only door to the outside world.
     How did the exiles find themselves in the prison Gaza has become? In 2002 a young girl from a refugee camp triggered events that led to a 40-day siege of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. This is probably the oldest Christian church in the world, built by Constantine the Great and dating from AD330. A member of the girl’s family had been killed by Israeli occupation troops. Grief-stricken, she took revenge by turning herself into a suicide bomber. Disproportionate response
     The Israelis responded by sending 250 tanks and armoured personnel carriers, F-16 fighter jets, Apache helicopter gunships and hundreds of soldiers into West Bank towns like Nablus, Jenin and Bethlehem late at night. In Bethlehem they cut the electricity supply and invaded the old township with helicopters and occupied all key points around Manger Square. Many innocent Palestinians were killed by shelling and army snipers, and the market and some shops were set on fire as troops tried to hunt down suspected “fighters”. Civilians tried desperately to hide from the troops and a large number of people took refuge or arrived for other reasons at the church and found themselves trapped, unable to leave. more.. e-mail

O brother, where art thou? 
Pepe Escobar, Asia Times 6/28/2012
      The whole Arab world, and the whole world for that matter, was eager to know what the newly elected president of Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood (MB) cadre Mohammed Morsi, had to say about foreign policy in his victory speech.
     Talk about an anti-climax. He briefly mentioned Egypt would respect its “international agreements” – code for the 1979 Camp David accord with Israel. Tel Aviv and Washington might have been assured. As for the Arab street, certainly not.
     Laconic Morsi may have dodged the big question. But in this volatile environment de facto controlled by the Orwellian SCAF (Supreme Council of the Armed Forces) – the Egyptian military dictatorship apparatus – it seems the MB wouldn’t think twice about throwing the Palestinians under a slow-moving bus if that meant clinging to power.
     Still, this was not enough to appease the right-wingosphere in the US – with the usual rabid dogs pontificating about how President Barack Obama had “lost” Egypt and how the country would instantly be buried by an al-Qaeda sandstorm.
     It was up once again to Angry Arab blogger As’ad AbuKhalil to provide some much-needed perspective. As’ad stressed, “elections in the Arab world are now reduced to a contest between Saudi money and Qatari money”. And the winner in Egypt was Qatar’s House of Thani.
     It’s always important to remember that the House of Saud and the MB are extremely competitive on what is the meaning of pure Islam. Qatar’s official foreign policy is to support the MB wherever possible. From the point of view of Doha, this is immense; an Islamist is now president of the key Arab nation. Every committed Islamist from the Maghreb to Benghazi, and from Tehran to Kandahar, may also have reasons to rejoice. more.. e-mail

Touching Letters from Barack Obama
Palestine Chronicle: 28 Jun 2012 – By Ralph Nader I’ve been getting a variety of letters from President Barack Obama. The salutation is often: ‘Dear Ralph.’ One of them asks me for $25, adding ‘Ralph, this is that moment. This is the time to be in with me.’ He writes that ‘I need your voice,’ that America needs the ‘dreams and the energy and the determination of people like you.’ Mr. Obama acknowledged that, “We may have differences in policy, but we all believe in the rights enshrined in our Constitution.” He concludes one letter by saying “Ralph, I need you to be part of that movement. Now I need you to be in…. Your dreams, your determination will drive this campaign.” Wow! Wait, it gets better. Another letter starts: “Dear Ralph, each night, I get the chance to read about 10 letters from people across the country. Some are inspiring. Some are heartbreaking. But each…more

Tale of Israeli Soldier and Palestinian Hunger Strikers
Palestine Chronicle: 28 Jun 2012 – By Dallas Darling When Israeli poet and author Naomi Shihab Nye wrote: ‘A man crosses the street in rain, stepping gently/looking two times north and south, because his son is asleep on his shoulder;’ right now, in this ‘moment of madness,’ it could be used as a metaphor, a ‘pocket of resistance,’ in describing an Israeli soldier who has refused to serve in the Palestinian territories. Instead, he has chosen to start his own hunger strike in a military prison. It is a hunger strike to show solidarity with 1,500 Palestinian detainees who are also unjustly imprisoned and on a massive hunger strike. “This man carries the world’s most sensitive cargo,” continues Nye, “but he’s not marked/Nowhere does his jacket say FRAGILE, HANDLE WITH CARE.” This unmarked episode, hidden from the world and ignored by ruling classes, symbolizes a fragile but powerful scene. This off-stage struggle is over violent and…more
