Sabra and Shatila’s Haunting Night

Background 
In December 1982, the United Nations General Assembly declared the Sabra and Shatila massacre an “’act of genocide”. The Phalange murdered pregnant women and ripped out their foetuses, according to witnesses and journalists.

Flares pierce the night’s dark shroud,
Massacre’s horror, a silent crowd.
Israeli troops, exits sealed,
Residents trapped, fate revealed.

In ’83, MacBride’s blame laid bare,
Israel’s shame, an occupying snare.
Genocide’s specter, chilling decree,
A nation’s stain, for the world to see.

Kahan’s verdict echoes, IOF’s role severe,
Failure to halt, inaction sincere.
Sharon resigned, consequence grave,
Bloodshed ignored, a nation to save.
