    Israeli soldiers in aiding the massacre to be carried out. On 16th September 1982, Christian Phalangists invaded Sabra and Shatila refugee camps where they killed between 762 and 3,500 civilians, mostly Palestinians and Lebanese Shiites” (Sabra and Shatila Massacre ). According to Schulze, two Israeli journalists described the massacre as a, “wholesale slaughter of families” (67). The invasion was vengeance for the assassination of the newly elected leader Bashir Gemayal on 14th September 1982. In the aftermath, the Israeli placed the blame on the Palestinians for his death, specifically, defence minister Ariel Sharon who, “publicly blamed the Palestinians for the murder of their leader, president-elect Bashir Gemayel” (Fisk Ariel Sharon 2006). In response to this, Sharon advanced with his plans to remove an “estimated 2000 PLO fighters” (Shlam 415). According to Shlaim, Sharon ordered the Israeli force commanders to allow the Phalangists into the Palestinian refugee camps “in order to “clean out” the terrorists who, he claimed, were lurking there” (416). This went on for three days. It included the “hanging of live grenades around the victims’ necks’ and infants being trampled to death, as well as rape” (Schulze 67). The estimated death toll varies widely. Schulze stated that the Israeli Kahan commission “claimed that 700-800 civilians died” (67) which contradicts the death toll of “more than 2000” provided by the Palestinian Red Crescent (The sabra & Shatila Massacre…

    Ariel Sharon lived from 1928-2014 (85 years old). He was on the side of Israel when it came to the Israel-Arab conflicts, and there was no doubt about it. He started his legacy as a rebellious military leader, going against orders twice. He was the head of very violent attacks against the palestinians, and sided with powerful allies. He gained more land for the Israelis, but took it away from the palestinians in the process. And in an attempt at “peace”, he only makes matters worse. At the age…

    The Beach Research Paper

    The beach was my favorite song. The gull’s obnoxious caws as they flew overhead hunting for snappers, the toddlers laughing at the mischievous waves that grazed their unexpecting toes, the running dialogue and staccato beats of laughter that danced between me and my friends: every sound was a note in the ever-familiar symphony of the bay. When I was here, the rest of the world seemed strikingly bleak. Nothing could compare to the rickety green dock called my name, the soft sand that warmed my…

    make it out of there fast enough. The day was coming to an end and I could feel the sadness wash over me. Yet the day wasn’t over yet. As we were walking out of the theater, I saw her. There in the gleaming sunset with the cresting of white sea foam waves was my mermaid. She had strands of liquid gold hair, sea glass blue eyes, and a velvety teal tail. She flashed me a pearly smile and waved. I slowly approached her transfixed as I shamelessly stared. Here was my mermaid. My dream come true.…

    evil? Cartoons seem to have a way to share a secret message that we don't see unless we're looking closely. The message that you're not beautiful unless your skin is light, you have a small waist, and have long skinny legs. This is one of the many ones you can get from watching closely.

Most of us don't but now we're coming…
