Predictably, Sharon-Related Falsehoods Under Way

As anticipated, the passing of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has unearthed many old falsehoods.

In New York Magazine, for instance, Caroline Bankoff claims that Israeli soldiers, not the Phalange militia, killed hundreds of Palestinian refugees in Sabra and Shatilla:

Jan. 22 Update: CAMERA Prompts NY Magazine Correction on Sabra, Shatilla

Sharon had nothing to do with the killings. Elie Hobeika was the person who ordered the killings and not Ariel Sharon. What Caroline didn’t tell people, after Sabra and Chatilla, Hobeika was put under protection by Assad Sr in Lebanon.

After Syria invaded and took over Lebanon in 1990. Hobeika was rewarded by Assad for his actions in Sabra and Chatilla and put in the Lebanese parliament for 10 years.

It was then learned by Hobeika’s bodyguard,
(Roger Hatem), Elie Hobeika was a Syrian agent in the 82 War. Hatem was Hobeika’s bodyguard for 10 years. Roger Hatem wrote a book called, from Israel to Damascus. You can read the book online. Just google, From Israel to Damascus.

Hatem documents, how Hobeika ordered the killings at Sabra and Chatilla to make Israel look bad, so Syria could control Lebanon. The only reason why the Christians went along with Hobeika’s orders, was to avenge the thousands of Christians, who were killed by the PLO in Damour Lebanon and because the Lebanese Christian President Gamayel was just killed.

2nd, in 1985, the Syrian backed Amals Shiites, attacked the same Sabra camp and killed 650 Arabs. Ofcourse when Arabs kill each other, no one cares. What Hatem documents in his book. Sharon told Hobeika only to go after the armed PLO gunman in Sabra. Sharon made very clear to Hobeika not to target any civilians. Hobeika agreed to the orders. Then Hobeika gave his own orders to his men. Kill anyone they see in Sabra. Hobeika did this, to make Israel look bad, so Syria could control Lebanon .

If the Arabs were so concerned about the people killed in Sabra and Chatilla, why did Syria and Lebanon protect the person who ordered the killings. (Elie Hobeika).
Why did Assad put Hobeika in the Syrian controlled Lebanese parliament for 10 years?
What you had in Sabra and Chatilla was Arabs killing Arabs.
Not one single Israeli killed any Arab there.

Israel invaded Lebanon in 82 because of constant PLO attacks from South Lebanon into Israel. Sabra and Shatila was Arabs massacring Arabs. Nothing whatsoever to do with Sharon or any other Israeli.

Following a four-month investigation by the Kahan Commission, on February 8 1983, the Kahan Commission submitted its report. It concluded that direct responsibility rested with the Phalangists led by Elie Hobeika.
The Defense minister Ariel Sharon was found to bear personal responsibility “for ignoring the danger of bloodshed and revenge? and “not taking appropriate measures to prevent bloodshed?.
At most, Sharon might have had been responsible for not preventing Arabs from killing Arabs…

The media did the same thing with the Jenin massacre hoax in 2002.
After months of Israelis being blown up by Palestinian terrorists in 2002, Sharon had Israel fight back by going into the area where the Homicide bombers were coming from. (Jenin)

Palestinian Arabs wanted war and they got it.
They did not like the outcome? They were hoping that Israelis would give in? Such a disappointment for Europe and the Muslims that the Jews fought back.
When the Palestinians lost in Jenin, they started having fake funerals in Jenin.

Watch this staged funeral that the Palestinians organized in order to increase the number of the Palestinians killed in Jenin. This footage was filmed three days ago, on April 28, 2002. It is very clear and easy to see that the body has apparently "resurrected" and that the whole funeral is actually one big charade."
