Sabra and Shatila. Again.

A  student walked into my office today to return a book on Sabra and Shatila by Bayan Noweyhed al-Hout.  Naturally, we talked about Gaza.

In alarming simplicity, he said, it is like Sabra and Shatilla. Then, the Israelis besieged the camp and Arabs committed the killing. Now, Arabs are besieging Gaza and the Israelis are committing the killing.

Except that this massacre is happening now.

What will we do?
