Thanks. Thanks a lot.
I don't know if anyone has noticed, but I had been very calm lately. There was a reason for my calmness and my wonderful moods, my very own days of wine and roses as they'll be remembered, because I had quit watching television. Not American television, I don't watch that anyway, Greek television. And to be more specific, I had quit watching the news.

Oh the joy! The splendor of thinking all was well in my motherland and not having my blood boil with every emotional newscaster's yelling and screaming about the various subjects that attracted his wrath and condemnation on any given day!

I was still getting the news, unfortunately, through mama and grandma. But that's only a couple of times a week, and if I yell louder than them, I can get away with hearing only half of what they say. So I was almost at the point of canceling my satellite subscription actually, because I never watched Greek tv anymore and why should I be paying for something I don't use?

But there's a war on and as a semi-responsible blogging adult, I thought I should turn on my television. And so now I have a headache from listening to hysterical, screaming reporters yell loudly from Beirut, for hours on end, their eyes practically popping out of their heads in their rush to assure me how disproportionate Israel's response is. I've seen little chidren, in hospitals and refugee centers, and my heart bled for them. I saw dead bodies and ruined buildings, and the leaflets that the IDF has dropped in South Lebanon. I've seen people curse Israel and listened to the expert journalists/analysts explain to me that the Hezbollah are not really terrorists, they're Lebanon's Shiite military force. I didn't hear a word about the kidnapped Israeli soldiers though and no one mentioned that Lebanese politicians were aware of Nasrallah's plans. After about 40 minutes or so where Israel was criticized to everyone's content, then, as an act of fair and responsible journalism, a couple of minutes were spent showing the rocket attacks in Nahariya that took place this afternoon.

Today Greece celebrated the anniversary of the restoration of democracy after years of dictatorship so of course the news covered the President's speech during the official ceremony. The speech came at the end of the news, as the closing snippet. The snippet they chose out of the whole speech had nothing to do with restoration of democracy in Greece. It had nothing to do with Greece, actually. The news showed Carolos Papoulias reading from his speech that "the last time the world saw collective punishment was in World War II. It's time for international diplomacy to intervene, immediately and stop this cycle of violence."

And maybe it wasn't a snippet. Maybe his whole speech was about Israel, how would I know? Anyway, whatever. I know to not expect anything better.

The reason I wanted to tell you all this is in case you notice I'm in a bad mood, don't blame me. Blame Hezbollah for making me turn on the fucking news.

Life Under Fire
Leah, from Karmiel, Israel:
So how do we cope? How is that we can still make jokes (albeit rather dark ones) and find anything to smile about? How is that guys in the carpentry shop in Nesher (Haifa area) that was totally destroyed by a rocket yesterday—killing one employee in the process—vow to open again as soon as possible? How is that a man can sit amidst the wreckage of his apartment and play the piano? "Wait, let me play something in a major key," he says, "to put us in a better mood." A friend, caught outside just now as the sirens are going off and a rocket sails by, calls me. "Where do I go?" We've been instructed to stand close to a building if we are caught in the open and can't reach safety. "But the closest building to me is a house that was hit the other day," she wails. "Hizbullah's already got that address!!" She's scared, but she's still cracking jokes.

So how do we cope?

Disproportion this!
Ben Stein, Out of Disproportion
So, now I see that some commentators are saying that Israel's bombing of Lebanese Hezbollah strong points and neighborhoods is "disproportionate." The Israeli campaign, so this story goes, is bullying and terrorizing the Lebanese populace, and this is (so the argument goes) typical Israeli thug behavior.

Hmmm.

Let's see. In World War II, the Germans bombed exactly no United States cities or towns. We bombed the hell out of them, day and night, for more than two years, including helping the British with firebombing Dresden, one of the most appalling civilian killings by a free people of all time.

Was it disproportionate?
Cognac to cba.

The Lanky Bozo Speaks
Senator Do-Little has a few words to say to George W Bush, who is apparently not leader-ey enough for his tastes.
U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D- Mass., who was in town Sunday to help Gov. Jennifer Granholm campaign for her re-election bid, took time to take a jab at the Bush administration for its lack of leadership in the Israeli-Lebanon conflict.

"If I was president, this wouldn't have happened," said Kerry during a noon stop at Honest John's bar and grill in Detroit's Cass Corridor.
Honest John's bar and grill...gimme a friggin' break. Oh, and he's psychic, too.
Bush has been so concentrated on the war in Iraq that other Middle East tension arose as a result, he said.

"The president has been so absent on diplomacy when it comes to issues affecting the Middle East," Kerry said. "We're going to have a lot of ground to make up (in 2008) because of it."
Kerry's hindsight is always 20/20.
Hezbollah guerillas should have been targeted with other terrorist organizations, such as al-Qaida and the Taliban, which operate in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Kerry said. However, Bush, has focused military strength on Iraq.

"This is about American security and Bush has failed. He has made it so much worse because of his lack of reality in going into Iraq.…We have to destroy Hezbollah," he said.
Was JOHN KERRY talking about Hezbollah in 2004? Or...ever?

Typical Israeli Inhumanity
A 47-year-old unidentified Lebanese woman was admitted to Ziv Hospital in Safed on Saturday afternoon as she was brought to the Israel-Lebanese border suffering from severe injuries from a high-velocity gunshot wound in the back.

According to her son, who accompanied her to the border and to Ziv, they had been fleeing from the area of conflict. The pair is said to have been brought to an area near the northern border of Israel by a Lebanese physician and rescued under fire by Israel Defense Forces operating in southern Lebanon. The IDF transferred them to an ambulance that rushed to Safed, which itself has been under Hizbullah missile attack since the beginning of the war.

Doctors in the trauma unit administered lifesaving procedures, according to hospital director Dr. Oscar Embon and deputy director Dr. Calin Shapira. She was found to have a large, deep wound across the right side of her back, contusions in the right lung and fractures in several ribs. She was hurried to the surgical theater for treatment of the wound and a closer examination of the injured area.

Shapira said on Saturday night that the woman was in serious condition, attached to a respirator and under anesthesia. It was the first report of Israeli medical facilities treating any of the many Lebanese who have been wounded in the Israeli action in Lebanon.
Those war criminal bastards.
