Syrian-Run Lebanon Had No Intention of Disarming Hezbollah


Barbara J. Stock

Imagine my surprise when the news was broadcast that United Nation’s Peace Keeper forces have been in southern Lebanon since the United Nations passed Resolution 1559 in 2004. Now a United Nations team is on the way to Lebanon and the media reports make it sound as though these diplomats were facing a new conflict.

Since the fighting broke out between Israel and Hezbollah, two thousand mighty “peacekeepers” have sat there watching Hezbollah as they launch their rockets into Israel and there has been nary a peep from them. They are as useless as the body that sent them.

Israel withdrew from Lebanon in 2000. Part of the agreement was that the Lebanese government would disband and disarm Hezbollah and Israel would be protected from attacks from Lebanon’s southern border. Not wanting to identify Hezbollah as a terrorist group, the word “militias” was used instead.

In 2004, the United Nations again informed the government of Lebanon that all militia groups were to be disarmed in Resolution 1559.

“In a related provision, the Council called for the disbanding and disarmament of all Lebanese and non-Lebanese militias. It also called upon all parties concerned to cooperate fully and urgently with the Council for the full implementation of all its resolutions concerning the restoration in Lebanon of territorial integrity, full sovereignty and political independence.”

No one in the United Nations seemed concerned that this statement was added to the press release by Lebanon:

“MOHAMAD ISSA, Secretary-General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants of Lebanon, said that there were no militias in Lebanon. There was only the national Lebanese resistance, which appeared after the Israeli occupation and which would remain so long as Israel remained.”

Perhaps, the important line here is the last five words of this statement—“…as long as Israel remained.” Does this mean that Lebanon’s government was expecting an entire country to just disappear? What this statement does is make the United Nations resolution a waste of time. It clearly states that the “national Lebanese resistance,” also known as Hezbollah, would NOT be disbanded nor disarmed as long as Israel existed.

Keep in mind that this statement was made in 2004. In April of 2005, Syria was forced to leave Lebanon. Up until that point, it was the leader of Syria making the statements, not the leader of Lebanon.

Prime Minister Fouad Siniora was elected in July of that same year. Unfortunately, by that time, Hezbollah had a firm grip on southern Lebanon and had worked its way into the political workings of the government. In that election, Hezbollah won 35 seats out of the 128 seats in the new government. It was not a majority, but it was a very powerful and heavily armed minority.

Using the money it received from Iran, Hezbollah built schools, a hospital, and provided other services that the Lebanese government was unable to provide. The Shia Muslims in southern Lebanon see Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah as their leader and not Prime Minister Siniora. Hezbollah has successfully created a state of Islam within the state of Lebanon. Those people are now paying the price for their choice.

The general belief is now that the fragile Lebanese government cannot stop Hezbollah. Hezbollah, Syria, and Iran have hijacked Lebanon from its own people to be used as cannon fodder for their war against Israel.

Islamic terrorists and those countries that support them, in this case Syria and Iran, do not care about the people of Lebanon any more than Hamas cares about the Palestinians. The Islamic spokesmen that wail and cry about the civilian deaths deserve Oscars for their performances. Islamic leaders want a high casualty number to show the world. For Islam, the more dead, the better and they don’t care if they are innocent people. People must understand a basic premise of Islam—that there are no innocent people.

In the Islamic rampage to destroy Israel, there is no cost that is too high in human life. There is no Islamic concern for the dead or injured. Islam’s goal is total control of the Middle East and eventually, the world.

Members of Hezbollah proudly take reporters through the ruins of buildings proclaiming that there were no terrorists there, only civilians—only innocent women and children. What the tour guide fails to mention is that groups like Hezbollah always place themselves within civilian populations. Then, when the bombs start to fall, the Islamic leaders run and hide where it is safe, leaving the innocent civilians to die. Then, the dead are displayed like trophies to gain the sympathy of the world.

Many are mystified that Hezbollah fired rockets on the city of Nazareth, which is mostly populated by Arab Israelis, killing three, two of whom were children. It is not a mystery at all if one understands the mentality of Islamic leaders. In the mind of Islamic Hezbollah, any Arab Muslim living in peace with people considered descendants of monkeys and pigs deserves to die with them. Any Arab or Muslim living peacefully with Jews is considered the enemy and must suffer the same fate as the Jews.
Islam and the Quran are very clear on this matter: Apostasy 4:89
“They long that ye should disbelieve even as they disbelieve, that ye may be upon a level (with them). So choose not friends from them till they forsake their homes in the way of Allah; if they turn back (to enmity) then take them and kill them wherever ye find them, and choose no friend nor helper from among them.”
Islam has loosed its evil children on the world. They use many names: Hezbollah, Hamas, al Qaeda, Islamic Jihad, al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, and many more. Some are Shia Muslims and some are Sunni Muslims and some follow the Wahabi sect of Islam, but they all have two things in common. They are all Muslims and they all believe that it is Islam’s right to dominate the world and subjugate it and all who live in it to Islam.
The number of dead “civilians” means nothing to them. Islam does not see it as murder; it sees this mass murder as a purging of unbelievers from the Earth to prepare and purify it for Islamic rule.
Hezbollah is probably somewhat bewildered that its usual ploys of starting a conflict and then crying to the world about how out-gunned and helpless it is doesn’t seem to be working as well as in the past. For the first time, Israel’s plight is being recognized. Only muted requests for “restraint” on the part of Israel are being heard.
But this is only the beginning. This is a mere battle in a larger war with the followers of Islam. The war itself, lies ahead.

Golden Wedding Day

50 years ago, my wife and I got married. I’m sure she remembers the details perfectly : who wore what,and what the flowers were, and who said what afterwards.

I mostly remember we were both so nervous we were shaking ; but,after a few minutes, we settled down enough to get through the ceremony ;and the reception,and the honeymoon, and all the joys and sorrows of marriage.

Sunday, just for the heck of it, we’re going to “renew our vows”.
(It’s one of those romantic “girly things”, I guess. You’re supposed to tell ‘em you still love ‘em-in case they haven’t figured that out by now.)

(Am I going to have to put up with this vow business every 50 years ?)

Oh well: Happy Golden Anniversary, honey – and yes, I do love you !

New Rule: Stop giving me that pop-up ad for! There's a
reason you don't talk to people for 25 years. Because you don't
particularly like them! Besides, I already know what the captain of the
football team is doing these days: mowing my lawn.

New Rule: Don't eat anything that's served to you out a window unless
you're a seagull. People are acting all shocked that a human finger was
found in a bowl of Wendy's chili. Hey, it cost less than a dollar. What
did you expect it to contain? Trout?

New Rule: Stop saying that teenage boys who have sex with their hot,
blonde teachers are permanently damaged. I have a better description
for these kids: lucky bastards.

New Rule: If you need to shave and you still collect baseball cards,
you're a dope. If you're a kid, the cards are keepsakes of your idols.
If you're a grown man , they're pictures of men.

New Rule: Ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here's how much men care
about your eyebrows: do you have two of them? Okay, we're done

New Rule: There's no such thing as flavored water. There's a whole
aisle of this crap at the supermarket, water, but without that watery
taste. Sorry, but flavored water is called a soft drink. You want
flavored water? Pour some scotch over ice and let it melt. That's your
flavored water

New Rule: Stop f***ing with old people. Target is introducing a
redesigned pill bottle that's square, with a bigger label. And the top
is now the bottom. And by the time grandpa figures out how to open it,
his ass will be in the morgue. Congratulations, Target, you just solved
the Social Security crisis

New Rule: The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the ass
hole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a "decaf grande half-soy,
half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra
dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low and one NutraSweet," ooh, you're
a huge ass hole.

New Rule: I'm not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my
card, entering my PIN number, pressing "Enter," verifying the amount,
deciding,no, I don't want cash back, and pressing "Enter" again, the
kid who is supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my
Almond Joy.

New Rule: Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it
doesn't make you spiritual. It's right above the crack of your ass. And
it translates to "beef with broccoli." The last time you did anything
spiritual, you were praying to God you weren't pregnant. You're not
spiritual You're just high.

New Rule: Competitive eating isn't a sport. It's one of the seven
deadly sins. ESPN recently televised the US Open of Competitive Eating,
because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too damned
exciting. What's next, competitive farting? Oh wait. They're already
doing that. It's called "The Howard Stern Show."

New Rule: I don't need a bigger mega M&M. If I'm extra hungry for
M&Ms, I'll go nuts and eat two.

New Rule: If you're going to insist on making movies based on crappy,
old television shows, then you have to give everyone in the Cineplex a
remote so we can see what's playing on the other screens. Let's
remember the reason something was a television show in the first place
is that the idea wasn't good enough to be a movie.

New Rule: No more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for
weddings. Now it's for babies and new homes and graduations from rehab.
Picking out the stuff you want and having other people buy it for you
isn't gift giving, it's the white people version of looting.

This just in from our N. Korean Correspondent :

N. Korean Taepodong 2 Missile Suffers From “ Projectile Misfunction “ : Fails 45 seconds into Flight

Kim Jong IL mutters: “ This never happened to me before !”

July 4 , Pyongyang : In an early morning gesture of friendship toward the United States , Kim Jong IL , Fearless Leader of the Extremely Democratic and Nice People’s Republic of North Korea launched no less than three “celebratory fireworks displays” , including one that employed the much-heralded Taepodong 2 multi stage rocket.

The display started out rather well. Alerted by early-warning sensors, Japanese officials hurried to a protective bunker , and there were rumors that Walter Mondale ( a former Peace candidate, who had urged destruction of the North Korean display units while they were still on their launch pads ) might have had to change his Underoos.

Unfortunately, a mere 45 seconds into its flight, the Taepodong 2 suffered “projectile dysfunction” , and failed. (Look : It can happen to ANYONE, okay ? )

Our Fearless Leader rose bravely to the occasion , and had two Scud –type rockets fired towards Japan ; however, the Scuds experienced“premature oscillation” , and fell into the sea quite some distance from their goal .

Needless to say, our Fearless Leader was somewhat distressed.

“This has never happened to me before !”, he shouted.

( A young woman, who had been “attached to his staff” –as it were–had the temerity to giggle most inappropriately,and was handed over to the troops for Socialist re-indoctrination. )

It is hoped that Carter chap will be sent over soon to bring us some better rocket fuel , a few tons of uranium (and, perhaps, some Viagra) so we can help America celebrate its next birthday more fittingly !
