Crocodile tears?

Following the mistreatment of a group of Sudanese living in Lebanon, which I alluded to here, there’s been an almighty uproar. Hezbollah, the Sudanese and Lebanese governments and the almighty Guardian have all got in on the act.


I can’t help but be cynical here. Seems like a lot of hot air and that everything will blow over with no end result.

Racism is rife in Lebanon. It’s a fact of life. That it occurs in the security forces is hardly surprising. Amid all the sanctimonious waffle, at least that’s become blatantly obvious.

But … they can’t all be bad… they’re considering giving Palestinians a few more rights… yeah, right.

Time for this honky to sign off.
