9781935982098: War Diary: Lebanon 2006

What was it like to live in Beirut during the Israel-Lebanon war of 2006? Lebanese agronomy professor and social activist Rami Zurayk spent the whole war in Beirut with his family. War Diary: Lebanon 2006 is his intimate and vivid record of the 33-day onslaught. Throughout those 33 days, Israel's high-tech, lethal (and U.S.-supported) military was trying to inflict such suffering on Lebanon's people that they would turn against Hizbullah, which was both a resistance movement and a political party with members in the national parliament. Zurayk was one of many Lebanese leftists who saw Israel's attack as yet another episode in the West's decades-long project to subjugate the Arab world. This book explains why.

Book Description Just World Books, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. What was it like to live in Beirut during the Israel-Lebanon war of 2006? Lebanese agronomy professor and social activist Rami Zurayk spent the whole war in Beirut with his family. War Diary: Lebanon 2006 is his record of the 33-day-long onslaught. Describing it as magnificent, British author and journalist Matt Carr praised the book in these terms: Alternately angry, poignant, blackly comic, despairing and humane, his diary provides a very personal perspective on the war, on Israel, and on Lebanese and Arab politics that was - and is - almost entirely absent in the Western media. During the 2006 war, the Israeli military killed 1,200 Lebanese citizens-- most of them civilians-- and destroyed a large proportion of the country s infrastructure: power plants, factories, vital bridges, and the whole, densely populated area of southern Beirut known as the Dahieh. (43 Israeli civilians and 121 Israeli military were also killed in the war.) Throughout those 33 days in the summer of 2006, Israel s hi-tech, lethal (and U.S.-supported) military was trying to inflict such suffering on Lebanon s people that it would turn them against Hizbullah, which was both a resistance movement and a political party with members in the national parliament. At first, some Lebanese people seemed responsive to the argument Israeli spokesmen made, that the death and destruction their country was suffering was all Hizbullah s fault. For his part, Zurayk was one of the many Lebanese leftists who countered that argument, seeing Israel s attack as yet another episode in the West s decades-long project to subjugate the Arab world. As the war dragged on and Lebanon s intense suffering continued, Israel s arguments became less persuasive-- and Hizbullah gained the respect of increasing numbers of Lebanese. In the end, Israel failed in its core goal of turning Lebanon s people against Hizbullah. By the time the war ended, Hizbullah was more popular than ever before-- in Lebanon, and throughout the Arab world. War Diary: Lebanon 2006 brings to its readers Zurayk s vivid pictures of the horror and the emotional and political complexities of those days. Bookseller Inventory # UGH9781935982098
