Two Armenians, a dentist and a photographer, were shot to death in West Beirut, and political leaders called for a three-day protest strike beginning today by the 400,000 Armenians in Lebanon. Two other Armenians were slain in the Muslim sector of the capital on Tuesday. A joint statement by the Armenians denounced "this ugly criminal wave against Armenian citizens." Authorities said they have no leads in the killings.

The lunch rush was over at Marroosh Sandwiches, an Armenian restaurant on Allen Avenue. The last telephone to-go order had been filled, the last falafel fried, the last shawerma slices rolled in pita bread.

To the large Armenian community here, the arson slayings of a mother and her six children--allegedly by the family's father--raises a disturbing question. Was this an isolated instance of one man's madness--or a sign that traditional Armenian family values are breaking down under the stresses faced by recent immigrants? Armenian Americans pointed to the incident as a possible harbinger of worse to come, as the latest wave of Armenian immigrants arrive from Iran.
