Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win

BS"D

In a report from Beirut feebly feigning impartiality, we learn that Israel's assault has had absolutely no effect on the brave Islamic supercritters who, undaunted by bombs as normal mortals are by mere pieces of lint, have emeged unscathed from under their rocks to reassert authority over the rubble that symbolizes their goal for humanity. As the heroic Hannah Allam reports...

"Hezbollah guards armed with shiny machine guns reappeared at their posts at the mouth of Beirut's southern suburbs Tuesday."

My, aren't we impressed? Keeping themselves busy by buffing up their weapons to reflect sunlight so the enemy can see them more clearly must have been all that kept them going as they cowered underground in fear of the bombs.

Now, if you will forgive me, I will quote from a little more ot the report, but with a 'spin' of my own added to make that excerpt of the article slightly more interesting, at least to myself.

"[Shifty-eyed paranoid] Hezbollah watchmen tracked [hapless] visitors[?] through an 'elaborate lattice' [?] of young men who whiz through the rubble on scooters and trade intelligence on walkie-talkies, which run on batteries and are harder for the Israelis to eavesdrop on than cell phones or longer-range radios [i.e., their cellphone service is down and there's no power to operate the radios. In other words their command and control has been substantially degraded?]."

And why would anyone be "visiting" the heart of a terrorist enclave in the middle of a war, unless it was embedded in a civilian neighborhood by the cowardly ghouls who use civilians as shields for their perverse activities? Incidentally, that behavior is called "perfidy" and it is a VERY SERIOUS breach of international law which the world chooses to ignore.

"So far, locals.. [= Hezbollah propagandists?] say, the militant Islam[-ofascist terrorist] group has detained [acted out it's frustrations on?] at least 33 suspects for offenses ranging from spying for Israel to looting television sets from the rubble [and being someone they've been just itching to get even with]. If anyone doubts that Hezbollah still rules its crumbling urban fiefdom, spokesman Hussein Naboulsi offers foreign reporters daily tours in defiance of the Israeli drones that hover overhead [and has threatened to shoot anyone who says otherwise]. "

What an (ig)noble savage. Say, doesn't it sound reminiscent of Arafrat's last days at the Mukata landfill?

So, what do we learn here?

" 'Despite all the air raids, despite the destruction, despite the KILLING OF CIVILIANS, we're still here,' Naboulsi said triumphantly Tuesday from a patch of rubble."

Far be it from them to let a few civilian deaths caused by their perfidy to give them any qualms of conscience.

And in other news?

"Israeli bomb kills UN observers. "

Hmm. I wonder what they were "observing?" You don't suppose that Israel could have been taking fire from there, or that terrorists attempting to evade targeting tried to hide out there? Not like that sort of thing has ever happened before.

After reading the MSM reports, and looking at how "impartial" bodies side with the aggressors, it should be obvious that anyone who thinks Israel's foes are confined the battlefield, doesn't understand the nature of the conflict.
