A retired Lebanese general shows his racism

Elias Hanna will sound like an Arab nationalist when speaking to Al-Manar or NBN and he can sound pro-Hariri and pro-Phalanges in Saudi media. That is how principled he is. But look at this racism regarding the shooting at a bus of Syrian civilians: "Retired Lebanese Army General Elias Hanna told The Daily Star that incident was a relatively minor security breach. “I don’t think this is too important, maybe the timing is important but the damage could have been more,” he said. “The weapons used should have killed more people, so maybe this is a marginal incident.”... “The person killed is not of high use, it is not a mass demonstration or a large explosion that killed many people.” " (thanks Khalil)
