Did Israel Use in Lebanon?

Some doubts have been expressed regarding the
use by Israel of Internationally Forbidden Weapons in its war on Lebanon.
The South Medical Complex in Saida is
investigating this matter. It is examining 24 samples from corps that were
hit in the area of South Lebanon in a trial
discover the nature of the substances that lead to death.
In a phone call done
by "Assafir", the Lebanese local newspaper, Dr. Omar Morabi, the
president of the Association of the Lebanese Belgian Friendship in Brussels, said that an mission of the World Health
Organization (WHO) would be travelling to to Lebanon
with a view taking samples from dead bodies in South
The Association after
receiving a report and pictures from Dr. Bachir Cham, the president of the Said
Medical Complex, took action and attempted to arrange for a meeting with
UN secretary Kofi Anan The Associaiton submitted to Mr. Anan a report together
with the pictures.
Dr. Morebi and his
colleagues have held a press conference in the European Union head quarter in Brussels and delivered to
the international press a full report with attached pictures, in an attempt to
activate the file pertaining to the use of poisonous substances. Dr.
Azmi Imad , the head of the department of Environmental Health at the American University
explained that usually the gases that are used in weapons has a similar effect
as that of pesticides. But Dr. Imad could not affirm based on the pictures of
the victims of the Israeli massacres in the South whether Israel is using chemical or biological
(bacterial or viral) weapons in its war on Lebanon.
Those substances are
classified per their effects: causes "bubbles" (elevation of the skin
that get detached and get filled of the fluid or bulla) on the skin, paralyzes
nerves, causes internal hemorrhages, suffocates and prevent breathing and
causes deterioration of the skin, lungs and intestines, and others that cause
several illnesses. Comparing those substances to pesticides comes from the
similarities of their effects: theyparalyze the nerves, block the ability
to breathe and may cause internal hemorrhages and bubbles on the skin.
In view of this situation,
Dr. Imad instructed that the rescuers of the emergency team should clean the
skin from the bubbles, which should be cleaned in normal circumstances with
solutions like chlorine or water, but in emergency situations it is possible to
remove those bubbles (that are usually like oily spots) with a wooden stick or
a similar tool. This cleaning process is essential for the safety of the
rescuers and the medical team. This cleaning process is essential to protect
the rescuers from being exposed. .
Imad explains that
each substance has its own characteristics and symptoms: loosing the ability to
breathe resulting in a blue face and lips, high body temperature and
muscle cramps, in addition to signs that would only appear after three or four
hours. Imad also adds that each substance has its proper cure and he leaves it
to the specialists who would provide hospitals and rescuers with information.
Imad affirms that
collecting evidence is crucial; it is essential to retrieve samples of the
residues not only as biopsy from corpses but also from the scene where the
bodies are found to discover the substance used whether chemical or biological.
And here he explains that the area affected will remain polluted for at least
eight hours. While he points at the fact of the necessity of using gloves and
masks if there is any doubts of the existence of the poisoning substances that
could spread in the air between 200 and 250 meters away from the exact
Have Electro-Magnetic Weapons been used in Lebanon?
There is lack of
resources to undertake the underlying examinaiton and tests as to the nature of
weapons being used by Israel
In the absence of firm evidence, some worthwhile avenues of investigation
have been suggested .
Last May "Ray
News 24"- an Italian TV Channel- broadcast a report by
journalists in Iraq
concerning the use of a new type of experimental weapon. The latter
his consists of rays of short electro-magnetic waves similar to the waves
produced by the microwave devices used domestically.
This type of ray is
aimed at the human target. When the person is hit, the nerve
ends under his skin are affected leading to paralyzis of the nervous
system. Moreover, the micor-wave raise the body temperature through
heating the water in the cells. Used on live peopel, it's exactly the same
process as the the home used microwaves!
The report (that is now being investigated by the
Strategic Research Institute in California), a private independent research
center, explains that these types of weapons causes the
disassembling of the target body parts and the appearance of what looks like
burns in different parts of their bodies, while doctors could not find any
solid parts of bombs.
Bret Wagner, the head
of the Research Insitutute has called this weaponthe Death Ray. Wagner also points in a
published article that: "this weapon works in the speed of light and
is able to hit targets from very long distance and expose lives to the
microwaves that leads to its explosion.." This would explain the
great damage that doctors have witnessed in examining the corpses.
Yet the TV report on Iraq talks
about shrinkage of the body
mass of the corpse resulting from the use of this weapon. Wagner also
attributes the melted and distorted feature of the cars and buses that were
present on the battle scene to the exposure of the electromagnetic rays.
Some reports point to
the fact that a similar type of weapon was developed by the Soviet Union. It consisted in a targeted ray of
power used in the Soviet-Afghan war (1980-1989) It had the
capacity of penetratating underground into shelters and caves, where
it would reach its hidden targets. The report also explains that
when the human target is hit, it results in immediate death through
the deterioration of the nervous system and killing of the living cells in the
body including bacteria. This would explain mhy the bodies
remained well preserved for a period between 30 to 45 days.
Wagner adds in his report that Secretary of
Defense Don Rumsfeld has comfirmed that the US has developed
this type of weapon, while stating to the press that it is
still in the initial stages of development. He doesnot deny however the
possibility that may have been tested experimentally by the Military,
without prior approval. Wagner is now trying to convince the US Congress
to prohibit the use of this type of weapon. He also recommends that this
weapon should be internationally prohibited because it causes severe pain
before death, the criteria adopted by the International Treaties on the
Prohibition of Chemical and Poisoned Gas Weapons.
Would that be what Israel is using
What Type of Weapons Israel Uses Against Us In The Assault On Lebanon?
How is Israel killing
A question that the
doctors in the South are trying to find an answer for, since they are receiving
the dead bodies of the victims especially those hit by the airplanes on the
Torn ends, dreadful smell, burn signs without
being burned… a quick death caused by a sudden shut down of the nervous system
accompanied by the coagulation of the blood which prevents hemorrhage. Some
observers have suggested that Israel
may be using some sort of toxic gas or chemical ammunition in the
bombs aimed at civilians. .
Medical Complex" has taken the initiative to send biopsies from the victim
corpses of the Rmeileh massacre to be examined in order to reveal the truth.
Awaiting the results "Assafir news paper is
in direct communication with doctors and hospitals in the various regions of Lebanon to
collect testemonies about the cases they are examining. Some doctors who have
examined the corpses killed by air strikes have already noted their
astonishment, but could not identify the nature of the cases received either
because of the siege, the lack of Laboratory materials or because these are
cases never recorded before. While some doctors find it improbable that Israel has used chemical or phosphoric weapons
in the war on Lebanon,
Lebanese Army sources have mentioned "bombs" with special fillings,
some of which are internationally forbidden.
While Dr. Hassan Wazni the manager of the Nabatieh
public hospital, has spoken of the possibility that so-called "Emptying
Bombs" have been used. These bombs empty the air from body,
causing the person to stop breathing and therefore leading to heart immediate
In the mean time, we
would need to pursue the inquiry regarding the possible use of
"electro-magnetic" weapons by the United
States in Iraq.
