Pictures from Lebanon

Australia's Herald Sun has pictures of Hezbullah 'fighters' sitting in a Katyusha launcher in the middle of a residential neighborhood (this is what goes on in your neighborhood too, isn't it? I assume not). Here's one picture: You can find the rest here. The Sun notes that the terrorists are dressed in civilian clothing so they can quickly disappear, and are carrying automatic assault rifles and ride in on trucks mounted with cannon.

The photographs, from the Christian area of Wadi Chahrour in the east of Beirut, were taken by a visiting journalist and smuggled out by a friend.

According to the Herald Sun:

The Melbourne man who smuggled the shots out of Beirut and did not wish to be named said he was less than 400m from the block when it was obliterated.

"Hezbollah came in to launch their rockets, then within minutes the area was blasted by Israeli jets," he said.

"Until the Hezbollah fighters arrived, it had not been touched by the Israelis. Then it was totally devastated.

"It was carnage. Two innocent people died in that incident, but it was so lucky it was not more."

The release of the images comes as Hezbollah faces criticism for allegedly using innocent civilians as "human shields".
The IDF also has a video of Hezbullah shooting rockets from behind a three-story residential building in Qana. You can find that one here.

I will be watching to see if these photos are shown by the MSM here. I doubt it.

The evil of the cult of islam is indefensible and beyond understanding.

I looked out the window just now..nothing like that here..nor in Israel or any civilized country.

I wonder what Syria and Iran are plannning on involving Lebanon in next? And Jordan now has their knickers in a knot? Please...

Hannity and Colmes, on Foxnews, did indeed show 2 of the 3 photos, and talked about the very serious question about it even being done by Israel, and the significance of the photos re the hezballah terrorists being in the midst of civilian areas, and keeping ammo and missiles in mosques and homes, etc. Hannity was excellent; Colmes was Colmes, a self-hating Jewish atheist, LLL to the max.

Oliver North was on, and was totally supportive of Israel.
