Postscript 1/12/08: My father just read this post and thinks that I am remembering the Karantina Camp near the port. This makes sense, given that I am now recalling a taxi driver this summer pointing out the spot of Tel al-Zaatar further up the mountain from Beirut on the way to Ain Saade where two of my friends live. The Phalangists perpetrated massacres in both camps with Israeli blessings in 1976. They are prime real-estate now. Its all about resources.
