Concepts in the 21st Century

When you kill children and women, you are labeled a victim; but when you kill soldiers, you are labeled a terrorist.

The Truth Uttered by saudi kings
I would like to start my post thanking KSA for its "noble" statement that proves my solemn belief that the king of KSA is only one of the Arab kings/ monarchs/ princes/ presidents who work for and is protected by the USA imperialistic regime. We can remember how USA used to protect saddam hussein from the Iraqi rebels till Bush decided that he would be better off without him. It is only a matter of American decisions that will lead to the election of the dictators in the Arab world.

The KSA statement didn't surprise me; after all, why would the kings in KSA, or any of the other Arab countries, care about the Lebanese victims? Why would it affect a saudi king or any Arab president if a Lebanese child or a woman or a family was intentionally targeted by an israeli missile? Why would he care as long as he is enjoying good food, sexual pleasures and let's not forget his ready castles in the most expensive cities of Europe...

The Sin of Hezbollah?
Let's remember what happened, Hezbollah abducted two zionist soldiers and killed few. Allow me to remind you that a soldier is supposed to deal with death on a day by day basis; a soldier gets paid to kill and to avoid getting killed. This is what an army is all about. Even though I don't agree of the timing, Hezbollah didn't sin by targeting soldiers in an occupied land; after all a soldier is supposed to be alert and to protect himself instead of being an easy hunt. That's exclusively their problem and not that of Hezbollah.

israel Freeing the Two Soldiers
israel thought that Hezbollah will take the 2 soldiers and fly to Switzerland so the israeli replied by bombarding the single Lebanese airport. To prevent Hezbollah from turning on Air Conditioners in this hot weather, the israeli targeted power stations. Then for similar witty reasons, they israeli targeted many bridges, ambulance(s) and intentionally killed entire families and children and women. Without exaggeration, israel is now paralyzing Lebanon; why? Because, they claim that this will bring them the two cowardly soldiers back.

Lesson Learned
What do we learn from this story? That Hezbollah is a terrorist and that israel is a powerless lamb. Of course, when you kill children and women, you are labeled a victim; but when you kill soldiers, you are labeled a terrorist. This how the world perceives facts in the 21st century; this is how media is brainwashing the global population in the age of Internet and light speed communications.

On one hand, israel is betting that more and more Lebanese politicians will disagree with Hezbollah; hence, Hezbollah will lose support. USA, Europe, KSA and the rest of the Arab leaders want that as well (keep in mind that most of the Arab leaders are loyal puppets/puppies for USA). As more pressure is exerted on Hezbollah, they will have no choice but to give up their weapons; which is something I don't see happening any soon. As I am going to post this, I just heard on TV that Bush promised Seniora to press on israel to stop their attacks against Lebanon.

the katyucha's start flying and the brainwashed surface...

Hizbullah went INTO ISRAEL and attacked them there. Why? Justify that and I will rest my case.

Israel is not a weak lamb, it has one of the most powerful armies in the world, and the gloves are sadly off.

On the other hand, Hizbullah would do worse if they could. They have bombed (and are bombing) settlements... the fact that they're not advanced enough to kill innocents doesn't mean they don't want to. Hizbullah is hiding behind innocents, and playing a childish game.

Do you think a nation like Israel, that has seen nothing but war in its brief history has any problem with taking innocent life? No. Then, why does Hassouna hide behind powerless civilians? Because he's a coward. Because the lives of the Lebanese is a secondary thought.

Israel is crippling Lebanon. In order to destroy the hizb? hopefully. In order to punish the lebanese? Sadly, I feel that that's the case.

Riddle me this oh flag-waver... You call the US imperialist because they won't sit and take you're terrorist tactics... so what is Hizbullah? Islamising an entire region? Bringing death and destruction to a whole nation (which it claims to protect), destroying a nation's economy and endangering its people, FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Calm down.
Israel don't want to transfer anyone. Also, we DO NOT deliberately kill civilians. We do have problem with taking innocent lives. If we hadn't have this problem, we would have almost wiped your country of the map(reminds me of your Iranians patrons intentions towards Israel..). So we dropped flyers from jets and call the civilians to stay out of Hizbollah's institutes and buildings. Hizbollah must be disarmed.
Think. Why should Israel want this front while already have similar on in Gaza? We don't want war, but we also can't tolerate the unprovoked kidnapping nor killing of our sons. We pulled out from Lebanon till the last inch and we want peace in return but instead the Hizbollah is controling the border.
So No, we don't want to punish the Lebaneas (though you protect hizbollah). All the wars in our history were imposed on us by the arab dictators who didn't want to recognise our right to exist and attacked our cities from day one of our independence, and sent terrorists to kill our civilians. So gloves are off, to distroy the Hizbollah. If innocents get killed, we are deeply sorry for it, but not enough to let them keep killing us. They are our targets. Not the innocents.
You said it yourself, he's hiding behind innocents, against all the war rules, and we don't have any other choice, but to warn the innocent and hunt the terrorists.

Let me remind you what the US did when Japan attacked it's solders in pearl-harbor. The US Napalmed every inch of japan's paper cities and than dropped 2 nukes. The Hizbollah has attacked our soldiers, our civilians and our borders without provocation. Compared to the western "enlightend" nations we show remarkable restraint (although i know things look different from Lebanon). What do you think Israel should do??

Ahmad, I am glad that you posted this. Even though I am no supporter of Hizbollah, I think it is important that other views gets represented in this forum than those like the loud Ramz. And Hilal, I applaud the rationality of your views, and your tenacity in standing up to your point again and again: Lebanon is under attack; now is not the time to resolve internal differences.

As for the Israeli commentators, as much as you might believe what you're saying, and as much as others in the gullible West might believe all this well-constructed spin of yours, I think you will find it more difficult to sell that to this audience. But even you must see how blood-thirsty and war-mongering your goverment is, and you are just as responsible for its atrocities as the Lebanese are for Hizbullah. Actually, you claim to be the only democracy in the Middle East, which means your government is representative of you. But since you don't consider Lebanon to be a democracy, you can't hold its people responsible for Hizbullah. And spare me the bit about self-defense and restraint; you are as far from restrain as Iraq is from peace. But nice try, to drag in one of the biggest atrocities of mankind to make your evil look benign by comparison. Very suave! And don't you even try to make it about anti-semitism! The audacity to steal people's land and then call it independence! But that is old history now, isn't it? And the problem now is not people not wanting to be neighborly with you; the problem is the atrocities and unjustice carried by your government. Like I said in an earlier comment, you'd think a people who had faced such oppression historically would have more mercy, but I guess it is like the victims of sexual abuse: some just grow up to be the worst kind of abusers, because they know where it hurts, and worse still, they feel justified in doing it. This is not self-defense; this is viscious aggression.

To arch memory: I am sorry but i don't understand you, are you saying that it's OK for Hizbollah (or any other arab for this matter) to attack inside Israeli borders and hurt Israeli civilians while your own civilians are untouchable??
Altough we have more respect to human lives (arab too by the way) than the Hezbollah, in the end we our responsible for our own citizens first, and will use any means to stop or deter attacke against our soverign nation (If you have a problem with jews having a soverign nation in the first place, that's a whole new ballgame).

No, I am absolutely not saying that killing innocent civilians is acceptable anywhere. And that includes Israel killing civilians "to protect itself". No, not "any means" is acceptable!
And I have no problem with anyone having a sovereign nation, as long as it is not built on the suffering of others. I have no problem with jews; I have a problem with atrocity.

Arch.memory I understand you don't want civilians to be hit and I don't want this as well, however in Lebanon there are pepole who do want this outcome. It's regretable that in order to fight them we must stop nearly as low as them. In the end I rather be morally wrong and live than be a dead saint. It may be barbaric but when Israeli civilians are on the line, we will use any means at our disposal (the same as the US, britain and any other nation). Altough I have sympathy to all human beings defending my citizens is my first priority. All that said, I really hope a solution we can both live with will be implemented ASAP before more damage is done to Lebanon.

From my perspective, an American one, both sides have done horrible things to one another. For the Israelis, they have no reason to tolerate the "Gentiles" of this world and I'm suprised that they haven't wiped have the Middle East off the map yet. The Muslims seem to never quench their thirst for blood, walking the streets with AK's looking for a war to start. I know I get a biased view, I have no doubt. The Israelis treat the Palestinians like worthless refuse. The greatest shame is that the supposed Christians of both countries don't have the guts to demand peace and show Jew and Muslim alike the love of Jesus Christ. Both sides seem to have memories that span centuries (unfathomable in the U.S. - take the UK-US relationship for example). If we continue to fight the wars of our fathers the whole world will be covered with the blood of their children. I will be praying for peace in both your lands. May my Father bless you all.
