Our special correspondent Bilal el-Amine tours the destroyed south of Lebanon, where thousands still remain trapped and many dead lie along the highway; also, a report from Beirut on the human rights nightmare presented by hundreds of thousands of displaced Lebanese; we’ll also hear about the emerging environmental nightmare as a result of Israel’s bombing of a major Beirut power plant; a commentary about Condoleezza Rice’s birth pangs of a new Middle East; a documentary on Palestinian refugee children visiting the ruins of their villages, ransacked by Israeli militias nearly 60 years ago; and the Knight Report.
