UN Proves to Be UN-Necessary Once Again

(Cross posted @ The Daily Tidbit)
--Eventhough, UN Security Resolution 1559 and Resolution 1701 both state that Hezbollah must be disarmed, UN Secretary General Kofi Anan said very resolutely today that it is not the UN's job to disarm Hezbollah, and, furthermore, "It is also generally accepted that disarmament of Hezbollah cannot be done by force," he said."
BRUSSELS, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- The new UN mission in Lebanon is not tasked to disarm Hezbollah, the guerrilla group fighting Israel in south Lebanon, said UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on Friday.

"The troops are not going in there to disarm (Hezbollah). Let's be clear on that," Annan told reporters after an extraordinary meeting of the European Union (EU) foreign ministers here.

UN Security Council Resolution 1559 asks for disarmament of all militia in Lebanon -- national and non-national. This was reaffirmed in Resolution 1701, said Annan.

"The understanding was that the Lebanese would disarm (Hezbollah). It is also generally accepted that disarmament of Hezbollah cannot be done by force," he said.

-J. Peter Pham & Michael I. Krauss analyze the time-line of the what has happened during the Israel-Lebanon War and show that as usual, truth is always stranger than fiction
The following is not the outline of a rejected screenplay by an aspiring Hollywood writer trying to outdo 24. Nor is it product of a freshman political science student's imagination, concocting a term paper after a weekend of partying. It is merely an introduction one of the most stunning aspects of contemporary international relations in the real world: the United Nations' relentless campaign to undermine the security of Israel.

-It seems that there is no change in the fact that Palestinian summer camps for children and adoloscents are nothing more than Jihadist training boot camps that teach hateful and deadly ideology.
On Sheikh Ajlin Beach, dozens of Palestinian children are shouting and playing and splashing each other, like children anywhere. They are at summer camp. The lifeguard moves in between them, blowing his whistle and ordering them to stay within the marked-off swimming area. There are always a few who stray, deliberately or not. When that happens the teenaged girls who lead the various activities wade into the water in their long dresses and head coverings to make sure that the future generation of Islamic Jihad does not drown in the ocean. The organization runs the camp for disadvantaged children

All the Palestinian factions have been talking about social welfare in the past several weeks, including Islamic Jihad. Hisham, one of the camp directors, volunteers to discuss the children's schedule. He prefaces his remarks with the opening chapter of the Koran, Al-Fatiha.
When asked about this "truth," Hisham launches into a monologue on history from his perspective: "We teach the children the truth. How the Jews persecuted the prophets and tortured them. We stress that the Jews killed and slaughtered Arabs and Palestinians every chance they got. Most important, the children understand that the conflict with the Jews is not over land, but rather over religion. As long as Jews remain here, between the [Jordan] river and the sea, they will be our enemy and we will continue to pursue and kill them. When they leave we won't hurt them."

-It seems that the general British population may finally be waking up to the fact that Islam's extremist elements may pose a threat to them and the West.
The alleged plot to blow up transatlantic airliners and last year's terrorist attacks on London have made more people fear Islam as a religion, not merely its extremist elements, a poll for The Daily Telegraph has found.

A growing number of people fear that the country faces "a Muslim problem" and more than half of the respondents to the YouGov survey said that Islam posed a threat to Western liberal democracy. That compares with less than a third after the September 11 terrorist attacks on America five years ago.

-Finally, the IDF have released documents that they captured from Hezbollah strong-holds and bunkers that show their method and strategy of fund-raising.
Leaflets related to fund-raising for Hezbollah and the organization's indoctrination of the Lebanese population (particularly the Shi'ite population) were captured from Hezbollah terrorists in the villages of ‘Aita al-Sha'ab and Aita'run during the second Lebanon war. The leaflets and other documents captured were issued by a Hezbollah institution called the Islamic Resistance Support Association.

The Islamic Resistance Support Association was established in 1989 to regularize the organization's fund-raising campaigns. Headed by Al-Hajj Hussein al-Shami, it works through Beit al-Mal , the Hezbollah bank whose branches were attacked during the war. The money collected, in our assessment, is earmarked primarily for the purchase of weapons for Hezbollah terrorist-operations. Funds are raised in Lebanon and Muslim communities – especially Shi'ite – around the world, mainly in the Gulf States and western countries.

The dreaded book meme has struck me, and actually, I'm sort of excited about getting tagged. But one of the requirements is to tag five others--would you please join us? I read you a lot (okay, I'm a lurker) and would like to pass the torch to you and four others I admire.

Alrighty, sure, I'll take a look at it. Thanks for thinking of me!
