"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Tension had been running high at the Ain el-Hilweh camp since last month, when Islamist Lebanese groups clashed with Fatah and other Palestinian factions over their role in turning wanted Islamist militants over to the Lebanese army.

Even in a camp notorious for its lawlessness, yesterday’s violence was rated the worst in ten years, observers said. Security sources said the Lebanese attackers, belonging to the Dunniyeh Muslim militant group, sprayed automatic fire and threw grenades at positions held by the Fatah movement, killing one Fatah fighter.
