Terrorism, the US and the Middle East
are back together for an encore performance

The United States and the largely Arab-Islamic Middle East have been brought together again this week in a blaze of military violence, harsh rhetoric, and contorted emotions. The US bombing of Afghanistan and Sudan is the central act in a drama that once again threatens to launch a long-term confrontation between America and “Islamic terrorists” or “fundamentalist Islam”, as they are usually called here.
From the always amazing and enjoyable perspective of New York and the north-east American hinterland, the context of what is going on seems to me as fascinating as the particularities of the day-to-day events.

Hizbollah condemns,
Lebanese Front supports US stikes

Beirut, Jezzine, Lebanon Bulletin, staff, August 21, 1998
As reported by the UPI agency, Muslim fundamentalist groups in Lebanon have condemned the U.S. strikes on suspected terrorist sites in Sudan and Afghanistan and warned Washington that violence will lead to more violence. The deputy secretary of Hezbollah, Sheikh Naim Qassem, told reporters in Beirut "We condemn this aggression, and we consider that this state terrorism is more difficult and more dangerous than that of organizations." A Hezbollah statement released in Beirut described the U.S. attacks as "blunt violations against Sudan and Afghanistan that cannot but be classified under the slogan of state terrorism, which the U.S. government has been practicing for a long time." Meanhwile, Lebanese Foreign Minister Fares Boueiz expressed fears that Israel might launch an attack against Lebanon, taking advantage of the recent U.S. strikes against Sudan and Afghanistan. Boueiz said: "Israel might attempt to carry out a certain aggression without being blamed for such an aggression under the cover that others are launching strikes against terrorism." But he noted that "the situation in southen Lebanon is completely different" saying the groups fighting Israel have the right to resist its occupation of the southern region and are not terrorists. Boueiz said he feared that Israel would try to exploit the fact that the U.S. administration is practically unable to follow up international matters because of President Bill Clinton's "problems."

The Lebanese Minister was commenting on renewed threats by Israeli Internal Security Minister Avigdor Kahlani, who called Thursday to avenge every Israeli soldier killed in Lebanon by shelling Lebanon's economic interests and infrastructre, especially electricity installations and bridges. The Palestinian fundamentalist group Islamic Jihad Palestine also condemned the U.S. strikes, describing them as "barbaric" for targeting a civilian institution in Sudan. The group's representative in Lebanon, Abu Imad al-Rifai, said the attacks were "another proof that the U.S. administration is the No. 1 terrorist in the world and the biggest sponsor of Zionist terrorism." He said the attacks were also a desperate attempt by U.S. President Bill Clinton to "cover up his crimes and moral scandal."

In Jezzine (South Lebanon), a press-release issued by the Lebanese Front (coalition of anti-Syrian -mostly Christian- resistance groups) responded to Hizbollah, Fares Bouez and the "other pro-Syrian, pro-Iranian, factions in Lebanon," and openly endorsed the US strikes against suspected Ben Laden bases in Afghanistan and Sudan. The Lebanese Front said "Hizbollah is the main terror group in Lebanon, and is responsible for the killing of 270 US Marines and hundreds of US servicemen in 1983. Hizbollah is behind the bombing of the US embassy in Beirut and the taking of hostages. This terrorist organization is no less responsible for global terrorism against the United States, and the rest of the free world, including the innocent civilians in Jezzine and the border zone in south Lebanon. Its crimes against Americans and Lebanese should also be punished by the international community and its bases eradicated by US power." The Lebanese Front invited the Clinton Administration to use preventive measures and "uproot terrorism not only from Afghanistan and Sudan, but also from the Bekaa valley, the southern suburb of Beirut as well as south Lebanon. We believe that combatting terrorism should be as global as the threat of terrorism."

The Lebanese Front criticized Lebanon's foreign minister Fares Bouez "attempts to cover up for terrorism," and warned from the "spying activities which are taking place in many Lebanese embassies to the advantage of fundamentalist groups such as Hizbollah or other Islamist factions." The Front assured the "American people that the overwhelming majority of the Lebanese people inside the country and in the diaspora stands behind Washington in its campaign against ben Ladin's criminals."

Lebanon - A Heritage.

UNESCO: The World Heritage List
In the Aaftermath of Civil War

A very interesting article and photos by Selma Al-Radi, an archaeologist and a member of the GCI Visiting Committee:

    Since Lebanon's civil war ended in 1990, the country has been trying to reconstitute its institutions, destroyed during 16 years of savage fighting. In the last four years, enormous progress has been made toward rebuilding the nation's infrastructure and institutions. But much remains to be done, including protecting and conserving Lebanon's cultural heritage, which suffered neglect and destruction during the brutal war.
[ ... ] Beirut was where the war began, and the city's center was repeatedly and heavily bombarded, reducing many 19th-century buildings to rubble-strewn shells. Under Solidere's reconstruction plan, a few historic buildings were designated for restoration, but the rest of downtown was virtually razed in preparation for new construction.
    While this clearing of the city's center constituted a loss of some of the city's architectural heritage, it did provide an opportunity for archaeologists to determine the chronology of the ancient city known as Berytus. [ ... ]
