Standing in the midst of the rubble of south Beirut on Sunday, Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora declared the Israeli bombing campaign "a crime against humanity." Saniora was surrounded by a mob of reporters and television cameras and accompanied by Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, a Hizbullah backer. "What we see today is an image of the crimes Israel has committed ... there is no other description other than a criminal act that shows Israel's hatred to destroy Lebanon and its unity," he told reporters on a tour to south Beirut, which bore the brunt of the Israeli airstrikes that leveled neighborhoods.
