Lebanon - Sabra and Shatila massacre


  The lie that Ariel Sharon was found responsible

Wikipedia lies about Ariel Sharon

Leftists slander Ariel Sharon after his death



The Sabra and Shatila massacre

The Sabra and Shatila massacre in Lebanon in 1982 was a massacre of Muslims carried out by Christians.

But it is remembered because Israel can possibly be blamed. Massacres in Lebanon where Israel cannot be blamed are forgotten.





Waltz with Bashir (2008), an anti-war film against Israel's actions in Lebanon.
It's about the Sabra and Shatila massacre of 1982, though in fairness it shows Israel didn't do it.

The lie that Ariel Sharon was found responsible

It is widely claimed by leftists and anti-Israel people that Ariel Sharon was found "personally responsible" for the massacre by the Kahan Commission.

Of course this is rubbish. The Christian Arab killers were personally responsible for the massacre. Sharon was merely found personally responsible for not foreseeing it and not acting when reports came in. That is, negligent but not a war criminal. To be a war criminal you have to actually commit the war crimes.




1983: This is the summary (top) and conclusion (bottom) about Sharon in the report into the massacre by the Kahan Commission (1983).



1983: The Kahan report found that: "No intention existed on the part of any Israeli element to harm the non-combatant population in the camps."



1999: Page 440 of the book Crimes Against Humanity in International Criminal Law (1999) by Mahmoud Cherif Bassiouni.
This inserts the words "[for the massacres]" into the text, changing its meaning.



2002: Page 40 (a 2002 essay) in the collection The Age of the Warrior (2008) by Robert Fisk repeats the same distortion.



2011: Page 114 of the book Freedom Next Time (2011) by John Pilger repeats the same distortion.




Wikipedia lies about Ariel Sharon

Wikipedia widely spread lies about Ariel Sharon and the Sabra and Shatila massacre after his death in Jan 2014. It claimed he was found "personally responsible" for the massacre.

Wikipedia spread this lie about Sharon by using paraphrasing instead of direct quotes. (Always a giveaway.)



1 Jan 2014: Wikipedia article on Ariel Sharon as at 1 Jan 2014.
It seems perfectly accurate.



Mid-Jan 2014: Wikipedia article on Ariel Sharon shortly after his death on 11 Jan 2014.
This has now introduced:

  1. A lie. It says the Kahan Commission "concluded that Sharon bore personal responsibility for the massacre". Of course the Kahan Commission said no such thing. It is telling that this is a paraphrase, not a quote from the Kahan Commission.
  2. A fake reference. It claims as a source "[37]" which is this article, which says no such thing.




Leftists slander Sharon after his death

Leftists printed all sorts of outrageous slander about Ariel Sharon after his death in Jan 2014. Basically, they accused him of an involvement in the Sabra and Shatila massacre that he did not have.





Irish Times fanatic claims that Ariel Sharon "supervised" the Sabra and Shatila massacre, 16 Jan 2014.
Anti-Israel fanatic Eamonn McCann says, based on no evidence whatsoever, that: "Sharon will have believed as he went about his work that he was wielding the sword of God - and will have had the same sense of righteousness when supervising the Phalangists' pitiless butchery of more than 2,000 Palestinian refugees in Sabra and Shatila in Lebanon in 1982."
The Irish Times will publish any old stuff about Sharon, it seems.



Eamonn McCann is a supporter of Hezbollah and Hamas.



Ariel Sharon helped save the Jews of Israel from genocide in 1967.
From IDF.



Ariel Sharon helped save the Jews of Israel from genocide in 1973.
