– UN: Israel must pay Lebanon 850 million Dollars (The Ugly Truth, Dec 20, 2014):
OCDG: Very short article… This of course doesn’t mention the thousands of Lebanese killed and over a million displaced. Nor does it bring up the massive destruction of infrastructure and the many many cluster bombs/mines left after the “war”. 850 Trillion would be a better estimate.
The UN General Assembly approved on Saturday a resolution calling on Israel to pay Lebanon more than $850 million for damages caused by an oil spill allegedly resulting from attacks by the IDF on oil storage tanks during the Second Lebanon War. The resolution, which was past by a vote of 170 countries supporting and only six opposing, does not obligate Israel to pay.

Inhaled or ingested DU particles are highly toxic, and DU has been classified as an illegal weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations.
“More than ten times the amount of radiation released during atmospheric testing [of nuclear bombs] has been released from DU weaponry since 1991,” said Leuren Moret, a U.S. nuclear scientist.
“The genetic future of the Iraqi people, for the most part, is destroyed. The environment now is completely radioactive.”
“Because DU has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, the Middle East will, for all practical purposes, be radioactive forever.”
