Lebanon Updates

I am continuously updating my parallel Blog The Daily Tid Bit with all the news and events of the day as they unfold. Including links to other sources, and reports from the tv/radio and Hebrew News sources (NRG YNET ETC.)

I will also be writing something later (I hope).

This is absolutely horrible. My thoughts with the kidnapped soldiers. : (

ya, I know.. and your right.
The answer is to go and kick some ass. Start by taking out the Master Terrorist Nasrallah - and work our way down till the last Hizbullah is either dead or in prision.

Who was the country that founded Hezbollah again? I seem to have forgotten.

Your attempts at sarcasm are so precious and oh so useless. First of all, Iran and Syria founded and fund Hezbollah. Secondly, are you trying to imply that since, for example, the CIA funded Bin-Laden when he was fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan that they don't have a right to take him out when he turns his terrorist actions on us? One mistake doesn't make the mistake incapable of being changed. To think otherwise would be pretty, well, pretty rediculous.

Actually Israel covertly laid the groundwork for Hezbollah, and this is not a conspiracy theory. Look it up. It was an attempt at a religious outlet for disgruntled militants. The current situation with Hezbollah would be appropriately labelled "blowback" for Israel's well-intentioned meddlings.

behemoth, I don't need to look up. Why don't you provide us with the source? Again, even if, and it's not, what you said is true, how does one justify the other? Where in your moral universe that the two equates with one another?

Oleh, did I say anything about justification? It must be all the sugary cereal I'm eating, because I just can't remember ever mentioning it.

and btw: http://goliath.ecnext.com/coms2/gi_0199-2235212/Israel-created-two-of-its.html, you can purchase the article yourself.

I was briefed on this shocking fact by an Israeli scholar and intelligence officer who regularly speaks at the Dallas Peace Center during one of his regular Israeli-Palestinian conflict updates a few months ago.

Why don't you say the name of that Israeli scholar? Again, even if was true, what does one thing have to do with the other? Can you not answer a simple question? You are talking speaking about justification, because you're trying to come up with reasons for why what's happening now is Israel's fault. It just doesn't fly. Are you going to say that since HAMAS was promoted by Peres in the late 1980s that Israel is to blame for all that HAMAS has done since then? That would be the biggest disgusting example of moral relativism that I've ever heard. You take away the concept of moral choice. Yes, I know, morality is a bad thing. Again, just because a mistake is made does not mean that that mistake can't be rectified, and it in no way takes blame away from those who chose terrorism.

Secondly, I strongly suggest you pick up a good book and stop thinking you can get all your "knowledge" on the matter from web-sites.

I won't indulge your character assassination of me.

And to respond to your facetiousness, Israel did encourage Hamas by favoring Fatah.

Fatah, the "preferred" party for diplomacy by Israel, was not pursued aggressively by Israel, like Hamas.

Fatah could legitimize its existence by defining itself as a more moderate alternative to Hamas. The fact that Hamas was such a big threat kept Arafat in power, and he made damn well sure to keep Hamas a threat. Arafat was plenty in support of Hamas under the table, although he of course would pay lip service to hating them in the public forum. This kept him ingratiated with Israel. That, my friend, is common sense.

As it turns out, Hamas didn't like to play second-fiddle to Fatah, and it became the ruling party of the Palestinian government - sorry - terror regime.

Israel is the source of Israel's modern woes.

Yeah, so. What's your point?
