I don't get it!
Egypt messenger went to _SYRIA_ to tell them about the cease fire plan in _Lebanon_, and Assad said that Hizbullah is winning so They refuse to make any gestures!!!

a. If Hizbullah is winning, why is all lebanon destroyed and we have 400 deads and israel only 30?!

b. I thought that the damn Assad is no longer involved in Lebanon. Who the fuck he thinks he is that he refuses and makes negotiations on Lebanon future?!


Damn Hassan nassralah. he destoryed our country in the name of the shiite-syrian-iranian connection. I hate this guy and hope that Prime Minister Saniora will take care of him after the war.

Go Saniora! Go junbalt! Fuck those who brought the disaster on our country!!!

Today, simultaneous protest in Beirut and Tel Aviv.

In Beirut:
"I'm sorry I haven't been able to connect much lately. We are calling for a PEACEFUL PROTEST in Lebanon, Monday at 3 pm on the Ring, Tabaris. The only banners allowed are those saying “children are dying”, the only flag that should be present is the Lebanese flag.

All of you who are against children dying, whatever you may think or want from this war, join us."

In Tel Aviv, a peaceful vigil of grief and comemoration will be held in front of the Ministry of Defence in Tel Aviv from 4pm.

Details will be posted on the Open Levant forum on http://july2006.forumco.com/topic~TOPIC_ID~23.asp within the hour.

the Qana killing is a disaster. pure and simple. But taking such a catastrophe out of its context is plain ignorance (by context I mean for example - who started it all, who fires rockets out of heavily populated areas, who has a declared goal of exterminating who etc. etc. - but that's small change isn't it ?)

israeli kids were killed (should I say "slaughtered" ? or this is a word used only in case of Arab casualties ?) too in this war.
Did you know that ? Can anyone reading this thread refer me to any article in an Arab newspaper expressing any sorrow or condolences about Israeli kids which were btw the declared TARGET of HA ?

FYI-today in Israel, newspapers are full of debates but most of all shock and sorrow on this terrible loss. If we want to build a bridge for future relations, it would be helpful to know the other side is capable of empathy.

My very good friends here in the United States are Lebanese and they have family in northern the Beirut area. My prayers go out to them and all the people of Lebanon.

This war began with with fighting between Hezbolah and Israel with Lebenon the innocents caught in the middle. My friends tell me that the majority of the Lebanese did not want the Hezbolah in their country. Now it seems that Lebanon is uniting against a common enemy - Israel. Is this true?

What side is Lebanon on? I do not think they can continue to consider themselves the innocent victims any longer. If they do nothing and allow Hezbolah to position and fire missles from residential areas, then they are aiding and siding with the Hezbolah. If that is their decision, then they shoul expect Israel to fight back and there will be Lebanese casualties.

If Lebanon does indeed hate the Hezbolah forces in their country, then they should not allow themselves to be used as human shields. Why are the Lebansese people, police and armed forces not working with Israel to rid themselves of the Hezbolah? If misslle launchers in Beirut were taken down before they were fired, the city would not be a target. If the Lebanese had stopped missles from being launced from Qana, THEY could have saved their children.

If they reported accurate missle site locations to Israel, bombs woould be destroyed instead of people. If they reported places where Hezbolah leaders were located, the real enemy could be neutralized and the bombings would cease. If the Lebaneses got out of the way as Isreale has asked them to do, fewer innocent lives would be lost.

Innocent lives? Maybe when the war first began people could say they were innocently caught by surprise. But now it is time for the Lebanese people to take a side. Fight against Israel and adopt a Hezbolah philosophy, or resist the Hezbolah and seek a lasting peace with their Israeli neighbors.

I do not mean this to be an over simplification of a horrible situation, but Lebanese people are dying. Why are they dying and what will they live for when this war is over? I think the Lebanes people need to think carefully and quickly as to the choices they make. They will have to live with the those choices for a long time.

Praying for a lasting peace.

Dom,

Do you honestly beleive the slick rhetoric put infront of you about the Hezbollah hiding in civilian areas, can you not see through that as an excuse for the hidious war crimes that are being commited. Secondly Hezbollah were being integrated into the Lebanese political system and were conforming to the political arena and although disarming them was proving a long proccess are you not aware of the wider agenda which is being played out in Lebanon. The Isreali's say that rockest have been fired from Beirut , ok so why do you flatten the whole of southern Beirut and targeting heavily populated areas.

tal,

your comment is typical for someone who is new to the lebanese blogosphere. i would like to point out the following:-

- the voices in lebanon calling for peace are numerous.

- the voices in the lebanese blogoshpere calling for peace are more than numerous. i won't list links, i'll just ask you to look at the list of the contributors or commentators and read some of their websites.

- the israeli assault on lebanon, the cruelty, the thirst for blood, death, destruction, massacres and the heartless unhumane behavior of the attacks is obviously contributing to push peace lovers to change their minds.

- i was looking for the sense behind your question regarding the fact that no one in lebanon tries to condemn the killing of israeli children and i found your question irrelevant for two reasons:-

1- why on earth would you think that no one in lebanon condemns the death of children and civilians on both sides of the borders and why would you assume that the lebanese (or other arabs) are ignorant enough not to suffer for the death of civilians. again, i invite you to read lebanese blogs. you'll be more than surprized.

2- despite the information in paragraph 1 above, you should not be surpised to find out that civil casualties in israel are not mentioned on a daily basis in arab media, that's due to two main reasons:

a- whenever an israeli civilian is killed, the entire planet is outraged and all the western mainstream media covers it fully. i think they give the subject its share of attention and coverage. (i am not giving excuses. i'm really stating a sad fact)

b- the arab media sources would probably be interested in covering the killing of the israeli civilians (by the way Al Jazeera does it all the time) but how would they do that? take the last 20 days for example: more than 600 civilians killed in lebanon vs some 30 killed in israel (of which, most are armymen). If you were an honest journalist, what would YOU report?

- Finally, allow me to clarify one more thing: israel's behavior has discaouraged and infuriated the people who were calling for peace in lebanon and around the world. I do personally think that the moderate israeli people (like yourself) have a lot to do to raise awareness in israel about the prospects of peace. peace starts with RESPECTING your oponent and looking for what's common between you and him. peace cannot be achieved by force. force only leads to death.

Sami - I'd like your comments on the following statements from a Hizbullah fighter:

A Hezbollah member named Ali speaks to the Guardian:

Despite Israel's claims to have inflicted heavy losses on Hizbullah, Ali insists his side is in a strong position. "Things are going very well now, whatever happens we are winning. If they keep bombing us we will stay in the shelters, and with each bomb more people support the resistance. If they invade they will repeat the miserable fate they had in 1982, and if they hold one square foot they will give the Islamic resistance all the legitimacy. If they want to kill Hizbullah they have to kill every Shia in the south of Lebanon."
And even when the battle with the Israelis is over, he adds menacingly, Hizbullah will have other battles to fight. "The real battle is after the end of this war. We will have to settle score with the Lebanese politicians. We also have the best security and intelligence apparatus in this country, and we can reach any of those people who are speaking against us now. Let's finish with the Israelis and then we will settle scores later."

Sami - Here is another piece I'd like your commentary on. Is this Shiite Muslim lying?

Here is link to the letter in its original German.
http://www.tagesspiegel.de/politik/archiv/30.07.2006/2660279.asp

I lived until 2002 in a small southern village near Mardshajund that is inhabited by a majority of Shias like me. After Israel left Lebanon, it did not take long for Hezbollah to have its say in other towns. Received as successful resistance fighters and armed to the teeth, they stored rockets in bunkers in our town as well. The social work of the Party of God consisted in building a school and a residence over these bunkers! A local sheikh explained to me laughing that the Jews would lose in any event because the rockets would either be fired at them or if they attacked the rockets depots, they would be condemned by world opinion on account of the dead civilians. These people do not care about the Lebanese population, they use them as shields, and, once dead, as propaganda. As long as they continue existing there, there will be no tranquility and peace.
