Lebanese Political Journal: Israel Bombing Christians and Sunnis

Lebanese Political Journal: Israel Bombing Christians and Sunnis

This is the best explanation I have seen for why Israel bombed bridges in Christian areas north of Beirut. This makes sense, although - predictably - most of the Lebanese bloggers are ignoring it.

Read the whole thing.

Of course, the Lebanese bloggers are ignoring it. Likewise, The Usual Suspects in the West's media will also ignore facts and logic.

I'm really starting to understand the frustration and rage Israelis must be feeling at the outrageous anti-Israel propaganda emanating from much of the West's MSM.

To my mind, the BBC is the worst, but that wretched network is by no means alone.

On a related matter, the Canadian conservative blog Stephen Taylor, Conservative Pundit has a story and a streaming video of Hamas terrorists in Gaza using a UN ambulance to ferry terrorists. The story, halfway down the home page, is entitled "What the?" and the URL is http://www.stephentaylor.ca/

I know from previous readings at JPost, Haaretz and elsewhere that this is by no means an isolated incident. Apparently going back to the first Intifada, West Bank terrorists have been using ambulances to ferry terrorists, ammunition, etc.

While no lawyer, I have read the Third and Fourth Geneva Conventions. The use of ambulances for ferrying terrorists, ammo is, as I understand it, a war crime and, on a case by case basis, removes the Geneva Convention protection of an ambulance (or any other civilian vehicle, for that matter) being used for combatant purposes.

Of course if Israeli troops or aircraft attacked an ambulance carrying terrorists or ammunition, The Usual Suspects would howl and wail "Israeli war crime", "Israeli atrocity", yadda, yadda.

Hi Carl:

This one is amusing, as it inadvertently lets the mask fall off, in english for the world to see.

Remember, the fights that Israel was and is in are not, and have never been about land. Its about something far more evil.

Money quote: "Al Sharif said: ”We differ with the Shiites over basic principles in Islamic jurisprudence, but we should not blaspheme them, because they are Muslims. Which also makes it imperative for us to support them in their fight against the infidel enemy."

Sad isn't it. Puts the first shovelful of dirt on the coffin of land for peace.

How can you have peace with a cult that demands you die because you are not like them? How can you deal with such extreme xenophobia and hatred?

Not by giving it land.

You do have to love the "Bombing Christians and Sunnis" title, even though the targets were bridges.
