I was present & was the 1st journalist who entered the camp. I saw the massacre of Palestinians & Lebanese. Will be in my book in details.

36 years ago, #Israel protected its proxy, Falangists "Lebanese Forces", to commit the massacre of Sabra and Chatila.

Goodnight world...
In the memory of the 16th of September 1982, I share with you a small part of my forthcoming book about #Palestinian camps #SabraAndShatila and the massacre #Beirut #Lebanon.

Many descriptive parts are missing. It was a sad and shocking day that details never left my menory.

Shame on @marakeshfilms… whose excuses are just that.

Taking someone’s personal tragedies, framing them as fiction, and seeking fame & profit is predatory & vile.

Be ethical - boycott the movie ("Viper Club”) and donate to @JamesFoleyFund instead.

@marakeshfilms @JamesFoleyFund Disgusting, senseless & sadly ignorant behavior from @SusanSarandon - feeding false narratives & endangering those who pursue the truth.

Not to mention profiting off of journalists killed by #ISIS w/o a care in the world for their families.

What is the world coming to… #Syria
@marakeshfilms @JamesFoleyFund @SusanSarandon Former @washingtonpost correspondent in #Beirut, who spent years working on and reporting from #Syria.

Versus a Hollywood actress who called mainstream journalists who’ve worked on #Syria “traitors,” while acting in a movie exploiting the death of Western journalists by #ISIS.

Wow! I am watching @almanarnews discussing the parliamentary elections and they have shown videos in some voting locations of #Hariri men distributing money to voters waiting to vote. #lebanonelections2018
However, preliminary indications are that the candidate challenging #Hariri in his home turf #Saida, Ousama Saad, will be elected.
Polls will close in 4' in #Lebanon, the access to vote has been slow, news anchors are calling on voters to enter voting locations, even if it means they will be packed to earn the right to vote after 7 p.m. local because there will be no extension. #lebanonelections2018

BREAKING: The White House has said that US President #Trump is canceling his upcoming South America trip to remain in the US "to oversee the American response to Syria." - @NBCNews
This sounds like the US is planning to strike #Syria and Trump will remain in the US to closely monitor responses by #Russia. This is terrible.
BREAKING - British forces are now mobilizing at their bases in #Cyprus for strikes against #Syria. It appears very likely that the US, France and U.K. will strike Syria in the next 24 hours. This is dreadful.

#Breakingnews:
#Hezbollah Nasrallah said: "If the Lebanese authority decides the #Israeli oil platform should stop working, in few hours these will be neutralised" (by Hezbollah anti-ship missiles).
The reason why #Hezbollah launched his menace to #Israel is due to #USA Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, David Satterfield (visiting #Lebanon) who threatened the Lebanese authority about preventing #Lebanon from exploring their oil
#USA Assistant Secretary David Satterfield said in closed doors to the Lebanese authorities:"If you don't give up of 860 sqkm of your territorial water to #Israel we won't allow you to exploit your oil in block 9"
#Hezbollah answered the #USA and #Israel today, through Nasrallah.
