Standing beneath banners bearing the smiling face of Yasser Arafat, five Palestinians in Beirut's Burj al-Barajneh refugee camp gathered transfixed around TVs showing live images of Israel's aerial bombardment of the Gaza Strip Wednesday morning.Although the Israeli Army has killed at least 40 Palestinians over the past two days, residents of the camps said Lebanese people and even some Palestinians had been apathetic to the bloodshed.While several Lebanese political parties have issued statements condemning the violence in recent days, several Palestinians said Hezbollah was the only party that had steadfastly supported their cause.Hezbollah goes back to the people who are funding it, Syria and Iran".From behind his desk in Mar Elias camp, Palestinian activist Edward Kattoura said that while Palestinians support Hezbollah's resistance creed, the party did little to improve the lives of the Palestinian people in Lebanon, whose ability to work and own property are limited under Lebanese law.
