LRB on Israel/Lebanon

Two excellent articles about the current Israeli war on Lebanon. Firstly Siege Notes, By Rasha Salti - a very personal account of living in Beirut while Israel bombs it.

Also an article by Karim Makdisi putting paid to Israel's rather successful spin-doctoring of its offensive. For example:

The ultimate irony is the Israeli claim that the purpose of this war is the 'implementation' of UN Security Council Resolution 1559 (which calls for the disarming of 'militias' in Lebanon): this from a country that has an unrivalled record in defying UN resolutions.

Reading these articles doesn't make me optimistic about the situation at all, but it does at least reassure me that there are people willing to talk sense about it.
