The Lebanon war you didn't hear about

After about 4 months of war Lebonon has declared victory over Fatah al-Islam and taken control over the Nahr al-Bared 'refugee camp' in Northern Lebanon. The months of warfare, including substantial amounts artilery bombardment, mean that there is not much left of the 'camp' (which would have been more accurately discribed as a town). Not heard much about it? Despite being the bloodiest internal violence since the Lebanese 1975-1990 civil war there was no rolling news coverage, no protests, no people chanting 'we are all Fatah al-Islam now'. I guess that could be because there wheren't Jews involved to protest against.
