Bombing in Lebanon

A bomb exploded in Ein el-Hilweh refugee camp on Saturday. Now Ein Hilweh is traditionally a refuge for criminals and assorted terrorists. Naturally despite the boastings of the most recent militia there, Israel was blamed. The man who was killed Abu Mohammad al-Masri, a member of Qaida. Naturally.

There is no hope for the Arab world until this sort of stuff ends. Politics will forever be by the sword, or its most lethal modern equivelant. Not that I really feel bad for the guy.
