A BBC show harshly critical of Ariel Sharon aired in Belgium. The show, which aired last Friday on the eve of the Belgian prime minister’s visit to Israel, accuses the Israeli prime minister of being responsible for the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacres in Lebanon. A lawsuit by Palestinian victims against Sharon was launched in Belgium several months ago.
