The morgues of Gaza’s hospitals are over-flowing. The bodies in their
blood-soaked white shrouds cover the entire floor space of the Shifa
hospital morgue. Some are intact, most horribly deformed, limbs twisted
into unnatural positions, chest cavities exposed, heads blown off, skulls
crushed in. Family members wait outside to identify and claim a brother,

have lost numerous family members and loved ones.

Blood is everywhere. Hospital orderlies hose down the floors of operating

continue to pour in: bodies lacerated by shrapnel, burns, bullet wounds.
Medical workers, exhausted and under siege, work day and night and each
life saved is seen as a victory over the predominance of death.

to keep their children safe. Continue reading

So it has been just over a week and it seems Lebanon, for now, can rest.  The stress and tension will fade a bit into the background until the next time something happens.  But when does it really stop? What will have to happen before Lebanon can truly know peace?

Just yesterday, the government revoked it’s initial decision to impose a resolution on Hezbollah’s telecommunications.

What is the permanent change that will ensure Lebanon’s peaceful internal stability?
