About Lebanon

From around 1981 Until 2006, Lebanon, to the north of Israel suffered a number of incursions by land see and air from neighbouring Israel. On each occasion, Israel was able to inflict considerable material and human damage on the Lebanese and Palestinian refugees in the region whilst suffering minimal casualties themselves. The plight of the Lebanese drove the English rock band "The Human League" to produce their hit single The Lebanon 1n 1984.

In 2006, when Israel launched another incursion into Lebanon, the local Islamist resistance group Hezbollah was this time ready for them and this time inflicted a humiliating defeat on the invading Israelis as described on pages 460-462 of The Shock Doctrine (2007) by Canadian author Naomi Klein.
