Surprised? Lebanese report: Hezbollah planted disabled children in basement to die
Lebanese report: Hezbollah planted disabled children in basement to die
By Israel Insider staff and partners August 1, 2006

A French language Lebanese publication, citing an unnamed source in Hezbollah, has claimed that the organization placed a rocket launcher on the roof of the notorious building in Qana to provoke an Israeli attack and brought invalid children inside to serve as victims and blacken Israel's name.

The chief difference between Hezbollah and IDF
Let's say that North Korea had decided to bomb California because Kim Jong Il was feeling down that day and decided that a little bombing would cheer him up. And let's say that out of his kind heart and tremendous concern for American civilians, he dropped leaflets over towns in the Bay Area warning citizens to flee because he was in a bad mood and his belly hurt him and he hated damn California hippies. Let's also say he accompanied these leaflets with a couple of warning rockets, just to make sure we took him seriously.

What would Californians do? Would we leave? Would we stay? I imagine that after a couple of rocket attacks, most of us would be in Nevada, hitting the casinos and complaining about the heat. But what if some of us couldn't or wouldn't leave? Like my grandma for example, who I'm sure not only would not leave but would subject anyone who suggested such a thing to a three-hour lecture about the Nazi occupation of Greece - "you shoulda seen the bombs back then! Today's bombs are nothing! You young people have it easy with those little nuclear bombs!"

Yeah, I know, I'm talking nonsense. But a lot of what's said about the war in Lebanon is nonsense as well. Like the "disproportionate response" for example. "But we only killed twelve of yours and you killed fifty of ours in return! That's unfair!" It sure is! War sucks, doesn't it? Someone should tell Hezbollah. Or the other nonsense-du-jour, Israel wants to re-occupy Lebanon. This one is on my top ten favourites. And the always classic, "Israel kills civilians!" And what the hell is Hezbollah killing, squirrels?

What happened in Qana is a tragedy. The IDF has said they didn't know there were civilians in the building; they had assumed the building was empty and they wouldn't have fired had they known. It's a tragedy that little children and old people were killed. It's a tragedy that thousands of people have lost their homes and loved ones. What's also a tragedy is that a third of the Lebanese people support and cheer murderers who see no shame in starting a war for no reason, in bringing war to their own women and children. What's a tragedy is that the Lebanese government doesn't give a damn about its own people and didn't lift a finger to help evacuate them. And I don't want to hear about roads being closed and such, reporters have managed to get to the scene of every bombing, I imagine if Hezbollah or the Lebanese government cared about innocent lives, they could have gotten these people out just as easy as they got the reporters in.

When Hezbollah murderers hide rocket launchers in civilian areas, over and over again, methodically and deliberately, that's a tragedy. To quote Lt. Gen. Halutz, "Hizbullah places Lebanese civilians as a barrier between us and them, while the IDF places itself as a barrier between Israeli civilians and the terror of Hizbullah. This is the chief difference between us and Hizbullah."

What would the masses do without artists?
Waleed Ayyoub is a Palestinian artist who specializes in portraits of Arafat, Nasser, and Fidel Castro. These days his number one bestseller is the portrait of Nasrallah, of course. Palestinian artist brings Nasrallah to the masses
Before the Lebanon conflict broke out on July 12, when Hizbollah seized two Israeli soldiers in a raid, Ayyoub might have been lucky to sell one or two portraits of Nasrallah a month. At a cost of $10 each, it wasn't a big money spinner. But now, with no political rally complete without Nasrallah's image being brandished aloft by the crowd or worn on T-shirts, Ayyoub can hardly produce enough pictures of him.

In fact, he's taken to printing cheaper, more-quickly produced posters of the Lebanese cleric, based on his portraits, to make Nasrallah more readily available to the masses. On Tuesday alone, Ayyoub said he sold 1,000 posters of the bearded and bespectacled cleric for $1 each.

Iran ups the ante
Iran frees bin Laden son
Die Welt said the Iranian Revolutionary Guard released Saad bin Laden on July 28 with the aim of sending him to the Syria-Lebanon border. It linked the reported move to the outbreak of war between Israel and Lebanese-based Hizbollah.

"From the Lebanese border, he has the task of building Islamist terror cells and preparing them to fight together with Hizbollah," Die Welt said, quoting intelligence information.

"Apparently Tehran is counting on recruiting Lebanese refugees in Syria for the fight against Israel, using bin Laden's help," it added in a preview of a report to appear in its Thursday edition.

Condi, unloved
Palestinians hate Condoleezza Rice. I mean they really-really hate her:
According to Palestinian Media Watch, the Palestinians "seem to have a special penchant for hating Rice. Some of the attacks have included expressions of racial hatred, as in an article this week referring to Rice as a raven and a previous article that referred to her as 'the colored,' 'the dark skinned' and 'the black lady.'"
And why do they hate her so much?
"The Palestinians hate her because of her arrogance and because of the policy she represents," said a veteran Palestinian newspaper editor. "Moreover, many Palestinians are angry with her because they think that all black people should be on their side."
So any black people who are not on the Palestinian people's side deserve racial insults. Got it. Palestinian anti-Rice feeling peaks

Running scared
Things are not going quite as planned for Hezbollah; morale is low and the leadership is losing control under increasing pressure. I hope they get thoroughly defeated not just for Israel's sake but for Lebanon's sake as well; after this war, Hezbollah is planning to "settle scores" with their opponents, which means another civil war in Lebanon. And in that war, I doubt anyone will be dropping leaflets warning civilians to flee so they don't get killed.
The sources added that Hezbollah makes use of its security apparatus to terrorize opposing leaders and political activists. In fact, the sources claim, close to 70 percent of the Lebanese opposes Hezbollah and the escapade into which it dragged the country.

The Shi'ites, the source of Hezbollah's authority and power, constitute 40 percent to 53 percent of the Lebanese population. But the sources estimate that among them a third does not support the organization, and some even oppose it.

"But Hezbollah threatens people. Their security men wander armed in the streets of Beirut and, in fact, have control over the capital. The opposition ? Saad Hariri's party and other parties ? oppose Hezbollah, and they privately rejoice at the blows Israel gives the organization. But they are afraid to speak out. Only Druze leader Walid Jumblatt has no fear of publicly expressing his opinion."

According to the sources, Hezbollah almost openly promises that after the war it will settle scores with its opposition. This was confirmed in a Saturday article in "The Guardian," whose reporter talked to Hezbollah fighters. "The real battle will be after the conclusion of this war. We will have a score to settle with Lebanese politicians," they said. "We have the best intelligence bodies in the country, and we can reach anyone who opposes. Let us finish with the Israelis, then we will settle the rest of the scores."
