Now that there is a supposed ceasefire, there are discussions about the money needed to rebuild Lebanon and where this money should come from.
In twee glass and china shops everywhere, there are signs with various variations on the theme of "You break it, you pay for it".
If you destroy something, there are consequences. Unless of course, you are the state of Israel. Then, there are only justifications. No apologies, no reparations, no hope for those suffering.
Unless Israel and the world is made to see that this destruction is wrong and unacceptable, Lebanon will never be safe, so what use is any charity money?
The shifting of the situation in Lebanon to just another charitable cause masks the injustice that has occurred there.
Lebanon has been violated and what the world is doing is just handing it make up to hide the injuries, the trauma, while murmuring "There, there. I'm sure Israel didn't mean for all this to happen. They're very nice really. You must have done something to upset them....."
