Funny you only mentioned Safra and Ehden, although they resulted in far fewer deaths than other massacres.I think Bachir's popularity and the love he has from a lot of people is due to the fact that he was killed at the top of his popularity to be honest. What he said he wanted to do to Lebanon and the idea he had made people love him, but he didn't get to implement it. It's like god forbid GMA was killed in 1990, people would be talking about him the same way.
However, massacres are still massacres, the Safra massacre is inexcusable. You can't tell me it had to be done. No it didn't, at all. Nor was the Ehden massacre. Taking away all the blame from Bachir is wrong.
Did the Karantina and Tel el Zaatar massacres have to be done?
Does a war crime stop being a war crime when the victim is Palestinian?
