Revue des blogs sur la guerre au Liban

Depuis le début de cette guerre, j’ai remarqué une grande différence entre les informations provenants des médias traditionnels et celles provenants des blogs. Les « trads » nous informent plus sur les mouvements militaires, les décomptes des pertes physiques et matérielles, les positions politiques, les enjeux, les stratégies. Les blogs quand à eux nous parlent plus avec le coeur, les émotions, le vécu que ce soit par les blogueurs là-bas en première ligne ou bien les blogueurs du monde entier qui y vont de leurs commentaires et appréciations de la situation.

J’ai tenté d’établir une liste exhaustive et bien sûr incomplète de tous ce que à ma connaissance  j’ai pu glané sur la blogosphère concernant cette bien triste situation.

  1. Merci Philipe de nous faire l’inventaire en même temps que le commentaire.
    Je n’ai toujours pas de nouvelles de mes amis à Beyrouth. J’espère en avoir via un des blogs libanais.
    Merci donc, encore.

  2. Nico,toujours rasurant de te savoir présent pour nous tenir éveillés.
    Chroniques Blondes, j’ai de la famille au Liban et aux dernières nouvelles les situations sont bien différentes dépendament de où on se trouve. Ils sont dans le nord apparament en sécurité pour le moment mais par contre, plus d’eau, ni essence, ni d’électricité, presque plus rien dans les magasins, plus de télé non plus. Ils se raccrochent à Internet et Skype qui sont vitaux pour le moral.

  3. Jusqu’ à quand ?
    Jusqu’à quand allons-nous subir ce meurtre organisé et orchestré par un Occident Sioniste ?
    Où sont les Hommes Défenseurs des droits de l’Homme ?
    Pourquoi ce silence coupable ? J’appelle toutes les Consciences Libres à manifester contre cette hégémonie sioniste contre une terre arabe !
    J’accuse Les Vampires de notre ère moderne qui se délectent à la vue du Sang Arabe…
    Les Busheries continuent …
    Les visages changent mais la stratégie est la même : anéantir le vieux monde arabe donner naissance à une nouvelle Identité Arabe sans Mémoire !
    Le monde bouge … Les cadavres s’entassent… L’impérialisme sioniste gagne du terrain…Les didacteurs arabes se taisent dans l’espoir de garder leurs trônes…
    « Si les actions du Hezbollah sont déplorables, et si Israël a le droit de se défendre, le recours excessif à la force doit être condamné »
    Cela ne traduit-il pas la mort effective de cette organisation caduque comme je l’avais déjà écrit en 1991 sur les pages de votre magazine. Je déplore l’attitude suspecte de l’ONU et de son secrétaire ! Comment une telle organisation peut-elle cautionner une telle barbarie ? Est-ce parce qu’elle est au service des usa et d’ « israël » Cet Horrible Mensonge de l’Histoire Moderne !

  4. Aujourd’hui un nouveau crime contre l’humanité : CANA : + de 60 civils assassinés dans leur sommeil par les bombes “made in USA” lancées par des avions “made in USA” pilotés par des Israeliens.
    Au fait 36 des 60 victimes sont des enfants en bas ages …. surement de la graine de terroristes hezbollah.

  5. A Sonia et Olivier, je peux comprendre votre indignation et votre révolte suite aux deux récentes bavures sur l’ONU et Cana. On dirait que l’histoire se répète mais la situation est bien différente par rappport aux autres guerres de cette région.
    A lire l’éditorial de Jean-Marie Colombani du Monde d’aujourd’hui ou le débat fais rage:

  6. UPDATE FROM A LEBANON UNDER UNJUSTIFIED ISRAELI WAR RAGE
    Friday July 28th, 2006- 17th day of attack
    17th day of attack and the results are….
    A report by the Lebanese Higher Relief Council reported that the number of casualties due to Israel’s continuous bombardment has been grossly underestimated. According to paramedics and emergency response crews, the true number of casualties could near 1,000 deaths. “In Tyre alone we had 125 dead and 150 missing or buried under the rubble”, said Sami Yazbek the head of the Red Cross operations.
    The Higher Relief Council official reported that a total of 866,780 Lebanese are displaced; 106,780 are sheltered in 652 schools across Lebanon, 550,000 are sheltered with families, friends, churches, mosques, even public parks, and 210,000 have left to neighboring countries such as Syria, Jordan, Cyprus, and the Gulf area.
    Bridges and buildings can be rebuilt, but the damage done to the environment is irreversible!!!
    At least 10,000 tons of heavy fuel oil was spilled into the Lebanese sea causing an environmental catastrophe with severe effects on health, biodiversity, and tourism in Lebanon. The oil spill resulted from the Israeli air raid on the Jiyyeh power plant South of Lebanon. A press release by Lebanese environmental NGOs indicated that 100km of the Lebanese coast, from Jiyyeh in the South to Chekka in the North has been hit by this oil spill. They added that this is definitely one of the worst environmental crisis in Lebanese history. The Mediterranean marine environment will suffer tremendously for several years from this spill. It will have severe impact on tourism in the future as well. The Lebanese High Relief Council declared that the oil-spill clean up will cost tens of millions of dollars and will require several years. The Ministry of Environment has organized a team to follow on this issue, and have requested help from the United Nations Environmental Program and the Regional Marine Pollution Emergency Response Center for the Mediterranean (REMPEC). The Ministry of Environment in Kuwait has also promised to send equipment and expertise to help in the clean up. Lebanese NGOs stressed that the constant Israeli air raids will make the operation very difficult, and an immediate cease fire is needed if we want to save Lebanon and its environment
    The Lebanese environmental organization, Green Line, has initiated an “impacts of war on the environment” project to explore, assess and document the environmental impacts of this war on Lebanon namely through fuel pollution and its impacts of sea water quality and biodiversity, air pollution, impacts of internationally banned weapons on environment and health. If you are interested write back to Green Line or call at 03 674 609 or attend our meeting on Monday July 31st at 6 pm in Green Line offices.

    Preliminary estimates of Lebanon’s Economic Losses
    The Lebanese Council for Development and Rehabilitation (CDR) issued a report at the beginning of the week in which it estimated Lebanon’s economic losses at 2,070 billion USD. The head of CDR explained that this report is just a preliminary estimate which was allowed by the extent of access and information currently available, and has a 15% margin of error. CDR estimated the losses in infrastructure and electricity and fuel stations at 725 million USD and losses in buildings and institutions at 453 million USD. It is worth noting that in March 2006, during a meeting for Lebanese civil society organizations discussing national development policies, the head of CDR explained that Lebanon was at a post construction stage, in which the building and functioning of institutions have to be addressed and enhanced. In his TV interview tonight, the head of CDR explained that the priority is back to reconstruction and all areas are a priority since everything is impacted due to the Israeli attack on Lebanon. He added that three main factors will impact this period; the technical issues, the availability of funding, and the political decision.
    No real humanitarian access in the south
    Christopher Stokes, of Doctors without Borders, was quoted in Lebanon’s Daily Star newspaper (http://www.dailystar.com.lb) saying: “In effect there is no real humanitarian access in the South; the international community is deluding itself with talk of humanitarian corridors. Talk of humanitarian corridors should not mask the real situation. We have had contacts (with the Israeli army). They have not been very productive, in terms of having contacts for security guarantees and we not been given any encouragement that we would have the guarantees to work in the south”. Stokes had nothing but praise for the Lebanese workers. “Lebanese associations are doing most of the work in the south, without any security guarantees,” he said. “I have been in a lot of war zones, I have rarely seen people so committed … They are the ones doing most of the work, not the international community.” He said it was impressive how many Lebanese doctors and surgeons in local hospitals had sent their families to safety but stayed behind to serve their communities.
    In their daily update, the Lebanese Higher Relief Council stated that towns and villages along the border with Israel are in disastrous conditions and the residents have been deprived of the most basic living standards. They are lacking basic needs, including safe water, food, and medical supplies. People are drinking from contaminated ponds, used to water crops and which animals drink from. The lack of water and medications to treat people “where some houses contains 50 individuals, have caused scabies which is spreading among the people”, said a local resident who was able to leave the southern village with others under Israeli bombs. The road to Beirut which usually takes two hours took them 8 hours. The Daily Star newspaper indicated that on Thursday, the International Committee of the Red Cross drove the first aid convoy to the border village of Rmeish in south Lebanon, where about 30,000 refugees have been cut off.
    Highlight on some of the solidarity activities with Lebanon from around the world
    In Malaysia: A Malaysian gathering led by Coalition against War in Malaysia called on US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice to get lost and condemned the Malaysian Prime Minister, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, as well as ASEAN foreign ministers for having an audience with Rice. The Coalition was led by political parties and non-governmental organisations. The joint statement called on the following: Israel immediately stops its attack on Palestine and Lebanon, the US immediately stops its occupation of Iraq and pull out its troops from Iraq, Israel and the US be held accountable for the crimes against humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression and be prosecuted under International law, the United States close down the infamous Guantonomo Bay detention centre, and Malaysian government not to negotiate free trade agreement with the US that will further promote its imperialist agenda and economic hegemony at the expense of Malaysians.
    In Canada: The Pugwash Council (Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs-Nobel Peace Prize 1995, http://www.pugwash.org) raised a letter to the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper against the war on Lebanon. This letter was one among a number of statements from Canadian organizations. In their letter, the Council urged the Government of Canada to provide strong diplomatic support to an immediate international effort to quell the disastrous conflict in Lebanon and Israel. They stated that Canadian Pugwash members strongly desire that Canada should stand by its traditional policies of peacemaking, peacekeeping and peace building, and urgently seek the formation of an international peace force that is fully staffed and equipped with resources appropriate to the need. They added that stopping and reversing this latest round of hostilities and violence should be the immediate priority of the international community, as any regional conflict will truly have international consequences. Accordingly, the Pugwash Council supports an immediate ceasefire to the violence and hostilities currently taking place. In parallel, urgent action by the international community is needed to rebuild destroyed infrastructure and restore minimally acceptable living standards for affected civilians, including the provision of food, water, housing, medical care and disease control
    In the USA: Ralph Nader, a former US presidential candidate sent a letter to President Bush yesterday where he wrote: “With systematic efficiency, the Israeli government has already destroyed innocent homes and basic public facilities—ports, airports, highways, bridges, power stations—which are critical to delivery of food, medicines, health care, ambulances, water and other essentials for a civilian population. This bombardment, by U.S. made bombers, military vehicles, ships and missiles with American taxpayer subsidies, places an inescapable responsibility upon your shoulders which does not mix with your usual vacuous messianic rigidity.” Then he advised him to send his special envoys to the Middle East in order to find an immediate way to cease fire. But Nader openly told the president in his letter that: “Just about all our knowledgeable retired military, diplomatic and intelligence officials believe resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the key to deflating other agitations in the region. Freedom and justice for the Palestinian state and security and stability for the Israeli state must both be achieved”.
    In Turkey: The Labor Union have been demonstrating and organizing candle vigils in Taksim Place for the last three days. The biggest demonstration against the Israeli attack on Lebanon is called for evening of Friday July 28th 2006.
    In Montevideo: A big meeting in solidarity with Lebanon and Palestine was organized, whereby for the first time the “traditional” solidarity groups were joined by human rights organizations and a variety of social organizations, unions, students and all the spectrum of the Arab communities.
    In Israel: Women against the War called for a women’s demonstration (dressed in black) in Israel to be organized on Saturday 29 of July 2005 at 18:30. The demonstration will call for stopping the war and killing of civilians, for negotiations, and for exchange of prisoners. The march will start in Rabin square in Tel Aviv at 18:30 and will reach Maxim square in Ben Zion Ave. It is called for by Women against the War, Coalition of Women for Peace, Achoti, Aswat, Bat Shalom, Women in Black, Fora, Tandi (Democratic Women Movement in Israel), Women against violence, Altafula, New Profile, The fifth mother, WILPF, Neled, Beit Nashim Feministy, “Itihad El Nissa El Takdumi”, Kian – Feminist organization.

  7. Pourquoi ai-je a lire l’article de Colombani? La realite est bien claire! Nous avons assez de jugeotte pour percevoir l’Histoire dans son cheminement…

  8. Monsieur Philippe Martin,
    Je tiens à vous féliciter pour votre analyse objective sur la guerre au Liban. Il est vrai que c’est indigne et regretable l’attitude des grandes nations et de l’onu face au massacre que perpetue Israël sur le peuple arabe. C’est même choquant un tel comportement venant d’un peuple qui a connu le génocide. On esperait les voirs defenseurs de la vie et la fraternité. Au lieu de cela, ils sont devenus plus sangunaires et assassins.
    J’espère que l’histoire n’oubliera pas et sanctionnera à sa juste valeur ces actes barbares d’un peuple qui par la corruption a su doper les institutions internationales et les grandes nations.
