Flashpoints – August 2, 2006

An in-depth look at the continuing destruction of Lebanon by Israel and the United States; we speak to a human rights activist and preschool teacher who fled her home in the South and is trying to care for some of the hundreds of thousands of Lebanese fleeing the war zones; Dahr Jamail tours the infamous Palestinian refugee camps of Sabra and Shatilla, where Palestinian victims of prior Israeli massacres care for those fleeing the current Israeli attacks; we take a deep look at the war and the real politics driving it; and the Knight Report.
