Murderous Pride

The war is about to end or will end soon after the extensive diplomatic efforts by many countries followed by a sudden rush by the USA to stop the war. The USA, who has fully supported the Israeli's aggression against Lebanon, is now forced to work on stopping the aggression after the obvious loss and embarrassment of Israel's mighty army.

Of course, the picture will be enhanced in order to prevent showing Israel's loss. But off the record, Israel has lost this war in Lebanon once again.

Lebanon is the only country in the world that has defeated Israel. The first time was in 2000, when Israel was forced to withdraw from South of Lebanon under constant attacks carried by Hezbollah, the Lebanese national resistance movement. And hopefully this will be the second time once Israel releases the Lebanese prisoners and withdraw from Shab'a farms.

Some may say otherwise, well, for the outsiders who are not familiar with the nature of wars in the Middle East that are involving Israel, things may not be clear as Lebanon has suffered more damage than Israel has. But the truth is what happened is a total loss for Israel. The win in this kind of wars is not measured by the destruction that is caused by one country to another. But it's by the achievement of the goals of each war. Israel has achieved none and Lebanon despite the significant damage inflected by Israel will achieve its goals.

The current war started when Hezbollah seized two Israel soldiers and Israel sought that incident as an excuse to eliminate Hezbollah once and for all. Israel started massive raids against the South of Lebanon. Artillery, navy and air forces were constantly bombing everything in Lebanon killing everything that was moving and claiming that it was Hezbollah's. Hezbollah in return, retaliated by launching thousands of missiles on North of Israel causing heavy damage and forcing 2 million Israelis to hide in shelters. Israel's arrogance prevented it to comply with the increasing demand to stop the killing of civilians and the destruction of the Lebanese civil infrastructure. They were still hoping that Hezbollah will still be eliminated. Israel at that time said that they will only stop their attack under certain conditions:

  1. Disarming Hezbollah and send them as far as beyond Al-Litani river.
  2. Instant return of the two captured soldiers without any exchange with any Lebanese prisoners.

Days have passed and Israel got nothing out of its attacks. Instead, Hezbollah kept hitting deeper in Israel reaching as far as Hayfa.
At that time Israel decided to send ground troops since the air strikes will never achieve their initial goals. Again, they were badly defeated by Hezbollah fighters and were forced to withdraw from points they hardly managed to take control of in the last week.

Today, Israel announced that disarming Hezbollah is not currently required to reach a ceasefire agreement. Instead, they showed flexibility toward the idea of exchange of the Lebanese prisoners for the Israeli ones and withdrawing from Shab'a farms- the last part of the Lebanese part under the Israel occupation- Basically, these demands were Hezbollah's all time demands.

Indeed, Lebanon has been severely destroyed. But for those who don't know, Lebanon has been destroyed by Israel many times and rebuilt by the Lebanese every time. One last time will not be impossible. However, they can now be proud that this small country achieved something that many Arabs country failed to. They freed their occupied land with no conditions. Their pride is the most honorable in the world. Israeli pride on the other hand, the murderous pride, is the most shameful of all time. That pride prevented Israel from allowing human and medical aid to reach South of Lebanon; it prevented them from accepting a 72 hours humanitarian ceasefire suggested by the UN during which injured civilians would have been rescued from under the dust of their collapsed homes. On the contrary, that pride pushed them to focus on destroying more and more of the Lebanese commercial, civil and tourist infrastructure hoping that this will create an internal pressure on Hezbollah. They were wrong. Lebanese prevail.

Now, let's talk about this war from different perspectives and will start with some Lebanese-American-Britain and other's claim that Hezbollah's doings are in favor of Syria and Iran. I personally find it stupid, yet disgraceful (for the Lebanese) to degenerate the national resistance and make it look like a toy in others hand. That claim would be true if Lebanon has a peace agreement with Israel and no Lebanese Land or prisoners are in Israel's hand. Since that does not apply, that claim is lame and really shows nothing but the stupidity of whoever repeats it like a parrot (i.e. Blair, Bush, Jumblat and others)

Hezbollah did start the current event, however, their act was against soldiers in uniform not civilians and the immediate response of Israel was against civilians Therefore, if we are to use the word terrorists, it will be more appropriate to describe the Israel's act and whoever supported the killing of all the civilians who have been killed.

I'm proud of the Lebanese in general and Hezbollah in specific for not letting their land and rights in anybody's control. And I'm so much disgusted by the world both the Western and the Arab who either stood in silence or supported the killing and destruction of Lebanon.

After 18 days of war in Lebanon, Israel and the free world represented by USA and Britain and supported by Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan have achieved the following:

  • One fifth of the Lebanese population was forced to leave their homes under the heavy bombardment.
  • 700 Lebanese civilians were killed by Israel and more than 3000 injured.

As for the numbers from the other side of the borders, Israel is controlling all the out coming media and not releasing any sort of info about the damage caused by Hezbollah, however, all what have been announced until now is less than 10 percent of the above numbers, yet, most of the casualties in Israel are soldiers as per the Israeli media.

From Israel to Lebanon with love.....

People around the world wonder why Arabs hate Israel. Their questions are based on the propaganda that Israel is a democratic entity in the Middle East that is facing evil powers around it whose only aim is to eliminate this peace-loving democratic state.

If people use reliable sources to get their information about the Middle East, they will understand and maybe hate Israel themselves.

Israel is a state built on the ruins and bloods of others. Throughout its short history, it has committed hundreds of massacres and atrocities, kicked hundreds of thousands of people out of their homes. Unfortunately, these stories are never covered by the media in the west! Why would it be? Israel is the establishment of the west in the ME!

Anyway, I'm not here to talk about history. But to answer the question of some people about why Arabs hate Israel, I though that this little story can do the job.

Two days ago a little Israeli girl, in the supposed age of innocence, decided to send a message reflecting the love she has in her heart toward the Arabs in general and Lebanese in specific to her Lebanese counterpart. The message was sent and received in the very same day. However the Lebanese girl could not read it as she was dead!

The Israeli girl who sent the message

The Lebanese girl who never lived to read the message

When a country like Israel kills the innocence of its children to make them grow with hatred in their heart instead of innocence, it cannot expect to be respected by its neighbors.

Hatred brings only hatred.

Update: Just today the 19th of July 2006, Israel killed 50 Lebanese civilians!

Lebanese terorrists caught on camera!

I was watching the coverage of the current blood bath in the Middle East on CBS news!

Their first reporter in Haifa shed some light on the agony of the Israelis in that city and mentioned that their life will never be the same after those days! Then the reporter interviewed a high ranking military officer who said they are sending warnings to the Lebanese civilians and doing their best to avoid any casualties among them! I applauded for the humanity of the Israeli army! I wish all the armies had a heart like the Israeli's.

Then their reporter in Lebanon quickly mentioned the death of some 23 Lebanese, without indicating the fact that they were civilians and most of them were KIDS! And made sure to mention that the Canadians who were killed that day were Lebanese-Canadians not just Canadians! As if that makes the loss less! ..... Maybe it does!!

Later on, the reporter interviewed a Lebanese-American girl- they did not use the term Lebanese-American, she was just American who happened to have a Lebanese parents. That girl showed the terror that is going on as a result of Hezbollah aggression! She did not indicate, not in a single word, any blame for Israel's aggression!

I was touched by the coverage and I believed- like thousands of the American people who watch that coverage everyday- that Israel is not an aggressor and that Lebanon is a nest for terrorism and therefore must be destroyed and its civilians- or terrorists as per CBS- slaughtered!

I googled some photos of those terrorist and found a lot. I will post some of them in case you are curious to see the terrorist that Israel has been killing everyday for the last week.

Way to go free world!

Today, We Are All Lebanese

Lebanon has been sentenced to death. On Wednesday 12 July, she was put in prison, and now she's being tortured.

Israel's war is with Lebanon's civilians, not Hizbollah. Nearly every person killed has been a civilian. Power stations, bridges and petrol stations have been targeted. Israel has warned residents to get out of certain villages, but bombed roads to make it difficult - and refugee convoys have been picked out for deadly air raids.

Getting out of the country is impossible now too. The airport has been destroyed, the sea ports are blockaded, and the border posts and highways have been razed to the ground.
Lebanon is held hostage to the angry Israeli war machine. And now more than ever, Syrians bloggers, just like every Syrian stand by her.
Another generation of Lebanese will know nothing but war. We can't let this happen, Again.

The above has been supported by the group of Syrian bloggers at Syria Planet. Please feel free to re-post this statement.

The following is my own words on this issue:
Thousands of Lebanese have been in detention in Israeli prisons for years. Nobody in the world seemed to care. Yet, when two Israelis soldiers were seized by Hezbollah, almost everybody in the new world as well as the Arab world started to cry out for the legitimate right of Israelis to destroy Lebanon and slaughter Lebanese!

More than one hundred civilians in Lebanon have been killed and hundreds of casualties! Israel is targeting the infrastructure of Lebanon causing severe damage to the Lebanese economic! Still, nobody seems to care!

I'm not surprised when the US, Canada, Germany, Russia, UK and many other "civilized" western countries cared for nothing but for the two captured Israeli soldiers, while a whole nation, hundreds of children and innocents are been killed everyday! But what has really got into me was the response of countries such as Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and Kuwait! They all took the same stand condemning the capture of the Israeli soldiers and calling to blame Hezbollah for its wrong doing!

I curse the Arabic language that I speak, which made me have something in common with the Bedouin Arabs! I'm Syrian and will never be an Arab!

I may not agree with the timing of Hezbollah's action, not the action itself. But clearly, I give my full support – if it means anything- to All the Lebanese and to Hezbollah in their fight with the Israeli Nazis!

Syria is watching, doing nothing and will do nothing no matter what! The Golan Height is the most stable front in the region! Why to bother? If Lebanon has always been the battlefield for the Arab-Israeli conflict! Got anything against Israel? Bring it on to Lebanon!

Now Lebanon is destroyed, Hezbollah will face not only Israeli and the US, but Arabs and Lebanese! The end of these days' escalation will mean the end of the only efficient and respectable resistance against Israel in the world!

The Lebanese have been proud of their resistance. I feel jealous, as Syrian, for not having the same resistance in the Golan Height front! Shame that politicians, Lebanese and Arabs mostly have decided to work on terminating such a glorious resistance!

God save and help Lebanon and may victory and pride be on their side, of course, that does not include the puppets and fagits of March 14th!
