“Bahrainis March to Protest Qana Massacre,” from Arab News, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
MANAMA, 7 August 2006 “” Bahrainis marched in the old part of the capital yesterday to mark the passing of one week of the Israeli attack on the village of Qana that left 56 people, including at least 34 children, dead.
The protesters waved Hezbollah flags and raised pictures of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah as they condemned the United States and Israel and what they described as the silence of the UN and the international community in the face of carnage in Lebanon and Gaza.
“Nasrallah has said that Hezbollah is willing to stop firing rockets on Israeli villages and towns if the Israelis stopped doing so in Lebanon,” pointed out Hayat Al-Alawi who took part in the protest. “It is not acceptable to allow the Israelis to bombard the whole country killing hundreds of civilians while the world watches. If they kill civilians then they should expect the same in return.”
But of course, Hizballah was firing rockets on Israeli villages before the Israelis entered Lebanon. When I was in northern Israel last fall, rockets from Lebanon were falling there. They continued to fall. But the world took no notice.
