The Irony of the Lebanese 'Aid' Ship

The anticipated Gaza "aid" ship from Lebanon, whose organizer's sentiments about Jews echo those of Helen Thomas, would do well keeping its delivery closer to home. In Beirut yesterday, thousands of Palestinian activists demonstrated demanding more rights for Palestinians in squalid refugee camps:

The Palestinian refugee situation in Lebanon is deplorable but that in no way justifies Israel's treatment of the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank. And there wouldn't be Palestinian refugees if they were allowed to live on their land.
