Lebanon

It's nearly a month into the Israeli attack on Lebanon. Today the Israelis have told the people of Tyre not to flee the city by car as any moving vehicles will be assumed to be carrying weapons. So the alternative appears to be stay put and wait for the bombs to hit.

There's plenty being said on this each day and I'm not sure I can really add anything to the debate, but I find it absolutely extraordinary. The Israelis are even restricting the movement of the Red Cross whose workers you might reasonably expect to be afforded some kind of immunity. But no.

Here's a petition drawn up by some American academics condemning the attacks. Have a look.
