About this product
- DescriptionWhat was it like to live in Beirut during the Israel-Leban war of 2006? Lebanese agromy professor and social activistRami Zuraykspent the whole war in Beirut with his family.War Diary: Leban 2006is 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 Leban'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 ather episode in the West's decades-long project to subjugate the Arab world. This book explains why.
