    By taking sides in a case like Sabra and Shatilla, by allowing this affair to take place on its soil and blaming Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Belgium is playing with fire. It is important for all to understand that if Belgium is opening this up for political purposes, it is making a dangerous move at a wrong time in history, at the wrong place, with the wrong victim. Yes, a massacre took place in 1982, and it is a matter of public record who were the instigators and perpetrators. This was not the first massacre in Lebanon and probably not...

    Belgium: Waiting for the Guillotine Isaac Kohn 19 February 2003 "Unpretentious, hypocritical slagheap of bigotry surrounded by a thick halo of transparent anti-Semitism." No other phrase can best describe the Belgian court decision to ´try´ top Israeli officials for alleged ´war crimes´ supposedly committed in her past wars against Arab terrorists. Specifically, Belgium intends to put on trial former top Israeli leaders (including Prime Minister Sharon, at the end of his tenure) who presided as military commanders during the Lebanese War of 1982. This modern blood libel perpetrated by Arabs and swallowed in its entirety by Belgium, is not only...

    More CommentsAshkenazi Chief Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau decried Belgium's hypocrisy: "The thought that a nation that stood by and watched when Jewish blood was spilt like water and ignored victims' cries, is now elevating itself to the position of world policeman - is outrageous in the extreme." He condemned the fact that Belgium, "which remained quiet when it should have been screaming out in the name of humanity," is now speaking out "so pretentiously and hypocritically to cast fault on IDF soldiers and its commanders, who have endangered their own lives many times in order to refrain from injuring innocent...

    Feb. 13, 2003 Attorney-General slams Belgian court ruling on war crimes (UPDATE) By DAN IZENBERG Attorney General Elyakim Rubinstein on Thursday blasted the Belgian Supreme Court decision paving the way for the immediate trial of three senior reserve army officers and of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon after he leaves office for their alleged involvement in a 1982 in two Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. "The criminal indictment in Belgium regarding (refugee camps) Sabra and Shatilla against Sharon, [Raphael] Eitan, [Amir] Drori and [Amos] Yaron is an injustice, not a search for justice," said Rubinstein. "Anyone who examined this case knows...

    Peres Slams Belgian Decision(IsraelNN.com) MK (Labor) Shimon Peres, a former prime minister and foreign minister, slammed the Belgian High Court decision that once out of office, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon may be tried for war crimes. Peres stated that Belgium has not endured what Israel has endured and it may not place itself as the judge of history. Arabs are using the Belgian international jurisdiction law to have Sharon held accountable for war crimes related to the 1982 massacre in Sabra and Shatila in Lebanon.

    A popular search term for Internet search engines must be "Palestinian massacres". Why not? There are many of them. Some old and unforgettable, others new, and some are yet to come to an end. 20 years later, thousands of the Sabra and Shatilla massacre victims are yet to be accounted for. Should we count them as dead or missing? How long will it be for the missing to be classified as dead? Now you know why when we refer to that infamous West Beirut carnage, orchestrated by Israel and carried out by its allies, we still say: ".. where 2,000...
