Big Pharoah: Hezbollah the Brave; Hezbollah the Cowards

Egyptian blogger Big Pharoah puts Hezbullah in its place:
Nevertheless, there is one thing I really cannot understand, cannot fathom. How can such brave religiously inspired fighters reach such level of cowardliness and hide their arsenal in and shot their rockets from the midst of civilians? I have asked this question in a Hezbollah Paltalk chat room and one of them told me to show the room evidence that Hezbollah uses civilian villages and towns to fire their rockets. "Show me evidence they don't do so," was my answer.

My evidence is as follows. The UN humanitarian chief, in a pig flying moment, accused Hezbollah of "cowardly blending" among Lebanese civilians and causing the deaths of hundreds during two weeks of cross-border violence with Israel. That's number one. Number two. The Israeli planes are bombing towns and villages. Regardless of my shock at some of the sites Israel bombed (the Lebanese army is an example), I don't expect the Israeli air force to keep on targeting villages and towns while the rockets and their launchers are in the mountains and the plentiful Lebanese open fields. Bombs are expensive right? Israel can't be wasting so much money while the bunkers and the rocket launchers aimed at its cities are out there in unpopulated areas.

Do Israeli bombs in many times become erroneous and many of the smart bombs turn out to be very dumb instead? The answer is yes. Is Israel to blame for the terrible events of today? The answer is a partial yes. Where should the blame be squarely upon? On those who know about Israel's erroneous bombs yet continue to hide and blend among civilians. On those who are responsible for the lives of Lebanese civilians.

Israel took responsibility for the lives of its own citizens in the north. It built them shelters and placed sirens in their vulnerable towns. Where are the Lebanese shelters? Where are the shelters in Qana? Or is Hezbollah busy digging military bunkers instead? And if Qana did in fact have shelters, will Hezbollah fighters be kind enough to conduct their war away from them or they will do what they did to the UN posts? Besides, why would Israel care about Lebanese civilians while the "Lebanese" fighters themselves don't do so?

Anyway, I have decided to be proactive and do something about this issue hoping that Qana won't ever happen again. I am not sure if Hezbollah's tech savvy militants downloaded Google Earth before, but I have, as far as I knew how, pinpointed mountainous and spacious open fields from where Hezbollah can fire as many rockets as it pleases (apologies to you Israelis out there).
Read the whole thing and see the map.
