Voilà un parfait exemple quand on surprotège jusqu’à l’intolérable un pays, qu’on lui laisse les mains totalement libres pour piétiner tout le monde et agir comme sa folie lui dicte.
Vraiment le monde entier est entrain d’observer ce que est devenue Israel comme machine de distruction aveugle grace à la protection et la bienveillance des Etats-Unis.
Cette guerre est un tournant et quelque soit son issue, Israel a perdu sur tellement de chapitres.

Lebanon Oil Spill May Rival Exxon Valdez of 1989 (Update1)
Aug. 8 (Bloomberg) — Lebanon’s oil spill, caused by Israeli bombardment of oil storage units at a power plant, may rival the leakage from the Exxon Valdez in Alaska in 1989 if left untreated, the United Nations Environment Program said.
“In the worst case scenario, and if all the oil contained in the bombed power plant at Jiyyeh leaked into the Mediterranean Sea, the Lebanese oil spill could well rival the Exxon Valdez disaster of 1989,” the UN said in an e-mailed statement today.
The spill has yet to be cleaned up or assessed more than three weeks after the bombing of the coastal Jiyyeh power plant south of Beirut because of the continuation of hostilities, Achim Steiner, Executive Director of the UN Environment Program, said in the statement.
The spill, which has polluted around two-thirds of the Lebanese coast and spread into neighboring Syria, may threaten East Mediterranean countries such as Cyprus and Turkey, Lebanon’s Environment Minister Yacoub Sarraf has said.
About 10,000 tonnes (about 3.1 million gallons) of oil has escaped from the Jiyyeh power plant and 35,000 tonnes (10.8 million gallons) in total may be spilt, the UN’s shipping agency, the International Maritime Organization has said.
The Exxon Valdez, which struck the Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound in Alaska, spilled more than 11 million gallons of crude oil, making it the largest spill in U.S. history.
“The quantity of oil spilled in Lebanon is already comparable to the disaster caused in 1999 off the coast of France when the Erika tanker spilled an estimated 13,000 metric tonnes (about 4 million gallons) of oil into the Atlantic Ocean,” the UN Environment Program said.
Marine Life Affected
Marine life, such as sea turtles and Bluefin tuna, has been affected by the Lebanese spill because the Eastern Mediterranean is a spawning ground for the tuna, the program said.
The Israeli navy has maintained a sea blockade for more than three weeks, preventing ships from entering or leaving Lebanese ports without its prior approval.
Israel has bombed airports, ports, bridges, roads and other facilities in Lebanon, inflicting losses estimated at more than $4 billion, according to the Lebanese government.
Israeli jets, which attacked the power plant twice, deterred firemen from putting out the fire at the storage units, which continued for 10 days, Sarraf said in an interview on Aug. 3.
The Israel navy also prohibited Lebanese and foreign officials from surveying the damage of the spill from Lebanon’s territorial waters, the minister said. The spill has grown into a 3,000-square kilometer area because it absorbed water, Sarraf said.
The Lebanese government is relying on the international community to provide as much as $200 million to clean up Lebanon’s territorial waters, the minister said.

Cyprus warns of ecological disaster of Lebanon’s oil spill
A Cypriot minister urged the European Union on Monday to confront a possible ecological disaster of oil spill in Lebanon due to Israeli bombing.
If the oil spill could not be dealt with promptly at the moment, it would create a big problem, said Cypriot Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environment Fotis Fotiou.
“Maybe at this moment we have not seen oil spill in our waters.. .but we do care about the ecological catastrophe already caused in the area,” Fotiou said.
“We must not forget the Mediterranean is a closed basin and sooner or later the ecological catastrophe will affect us too.”
Fotiou has asked Finnish Minister of Environment whose country holds rotating presidency of the European Union to convene a special meeting to tackle the issue.
Israel launched a massive assault against Lebanese Hezbollah on July 12 following the abduction of two Israeli soldiers in a cross- border attack.
Israeli jets hit storage tanks at the Jiyyeh plant south of the Lebanese capital Beirut at the beginning of the conflict, spilling an estimated 10,000 to 30,000 ton of oil into the Mediterranean, according to the United Nations Environment Program.
Marée noire : risque cancérigène pour la population
La marée noire déclenchée à la suite d’un bombardement israélien sur la centrale électrique de Jiyé (sud de Beyrouth), expose les populations libanaise et syrienne à une hausse des risques de cancer, a averti le Centre italien d’information de la Convention de Barcelone (Info-Rac), texte signé en 1976 pour la protection de la Méditerranée sous l’égide du Programme des Nations unies pour l’Environnement (PNUE) et dont 22 pays sont aujourd’hui signataires.
Comparable à l’ERIKA !!
