Lebanon war

Qana, where Jesus turned water into wine and Israel turns children into dust.

Mr. President,
Qana, the city where the Bible states Jesus turned water into wine, is where Israel has been is now well known for turning children into dust. This recent bombing is not the first time Israel has targeted and killed innocent civilians in this village.
may03 may04

The first time Israel
attacked Qana was on April 18, 1996 during a massive military offensive on Lebanon code named "Operation Grapes of Wrath," where about 800 civilians who were gathered in a UN Interim Forces base (UNIFL) in the village of Qana. Around 2 PM, many proximity-fused shells crashed into the UN civilian refugee encampment. After the smoke cleared 106, people were killed. The UN was able to investigate that situation. "The Van Knappen report indicated that IDF officials of "some seniority " were involved in orders to fire upon the base, which they knew was sheltering hundreds of civilians. International human rights organizations also conducted investigations and concluded that the shelling of the UNIFIL compound was most likely deliberate, not mistaken."


It marked the beginning of the end of the Israeli incursion. On April 26, 1996, U.S. Secretary of State Christopher was able to produce an understanding between Israel, Lebanon, the Hizballah and Syria that effectively ended Operation "Grapes of Wrath."

Today's American-supplied smart missiles provided a significantly better means of targeting and destruction of specific targets. So the objective of killing scores of civilians was achieved with a smarter weapon. The difference this time is your desired fantasy outcome for this battle and steadfast support for more death and destruction until democracy breaks out, will not allow the UN to bring a halt to this senseless killing or allow a UN investigation.

Is it another coincidence or has it just become a Jewish habit to purposefully target and kill Lebanese civilians?

The more I read about your Mideast ally's action both past and present, the clearer the picture becomes.

There are always survivors from every massacres, and they remember. It’s ironic that a people who suffered through the holocaust would forget that.

Israel and your neo-cons have set up Condi as the world's pinata.

Mr. President,
Although every time you let Israeli loving neo-cons tell you what to do you wind up with shit on your face, it's Condi who has become the world's pinata this week.

Israel must have been planning this offensive into Lebanon for a while. Hezbollah was caught off guard. They didn't think Israel would over react to the degree they did. The practice of
kidnapping then exchanging soldiers has dated back to 1948. It is nothing new.

In July, 1996 Hizballah released the bodies of two Israeli soldiers Joeseph Fink and Rahamin Alsheich for 123 Lebanese soldiers.

In June, 1998 Hizballah returned the body of Sergeant First-class Itamar for the bodies of 40 Hizballah soldiers.

In January, 2004 Israel released 436 prisoners including 400 Palestinians 23 Lebanese two Syrians three Moroccans three Sudanese a Libyan and a German Muslim plus the bodies of 59 Lebanese soldiers in exchange for three Israel soldiers and an Israeli spy Sheikh Abdel Kareem Obaid.

There have many other Israeli prisoner exchanges with Palestinians the PLO Hamas over the years.

"According to the Ramallah-based Mandela Institute for Human Rights, there is 9,600 Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails and detention centers, among them 130 Palestinian women. Defense for Children International puts the number of Palestinian children in Israeli custody at 388."

So why did Israel react violently this time?

The early press dispatches from Israel indicated they considered their incursion into Lebanon a "Blitzkrieg" fashioned attack. Israel's plan fell apart pretty quickly after thousands of bombs and artillery shells failed to quell the number of rocket attacks from Hizbollah.

It is important to note, Hizbollah did not fie rockets until Israel began their bombing attack on Lebanon.

Although Hizbollah was surprised by the ferocity of Israel's response, they obviously dispensed their weapons and soldiers well throughout the southern area. They had dug and fortified tunnel systems. They also established back up communications methods which the Israelis underestimated.

The nonstop video of dead women and children pulled from the rubble has incensed the world. Although Israel makes, a point of stating they dropped leaflets prior to bombing the south of Lebanon to tell civilians to leave the area they refuse to guarantee safe passage out. Ambulances and caravans of people who had the means or the money to leave were routinely bombed; some would say intentionally. And indeed Israel has bombed all areas of Lebanon including the Christian north and the middle of the country not just the Hizbollah southern region.

The UN
observers who have been stationed in the neutral zone posts for years had been in direct contact with Israeli military, and it didn't help them. The UN observers called ten times in six hours telling Israel their shells were approaching their observation post. Each time the Israeli commander said they would stop, but they didn't, and four UN personnel were killed. Even the rescuers were fired on by Israel gunners. The UN was extremely upset by the apparent intentional targeting of the UN personnel but once again the United States stood against the rest of the world as they blocked a resolution condemn and initiating an investigate of the UN post bombing.

Condi thought she could eke out a cease fire when Hezbollah took the first step and offered to cooperate in a cease fire but Israel quickly dismissed it.

Although Israel rejected the offer, I bet Condi
thought she had something to work with. She must have been furious when Israel cut the legs out from under her efforts when they bombed the village of Qana and killed scores of women and children.

Lebanon's Prime Minister Seniora angrily told Condi to stay away from Lebanon until Israel stops their merciless bombing of Lebanon and its infrastructure.
PH2006072900116
She should have realized that U.S. neo-cons and Israel have always been joined at the hip. There is no way people like Cheney and his cabal of neo-conservatives or Israel will let her get anything accomplished. They love this war and see it as a major goal of their efforts to make Israel the ultimate power in the region regardless of just cause or Arab blood shed in the process.

Poor Condi is caught between parroting your message to support Israel and world pressure. She has become everyone's pinata.

The ramifications of your actions will affect mutual cooperation, trade agreements and social attitudes towards the U.S. for years to come. But you have never concerned yourself with what the world thought so why start now?

You have made America, so easy to hate as the world's pariah.

The phrase "George Bush and Israel, butchers of children," has a nice ring to it in Oslo.

As of now Israel said it is temporarily suspending the aerial attack to investigate their latest atrocity but they didn't say anything about a full cease fire. It's a nice feint, but that's all. Their repeated attacks on the West Bank and Gaza have given them lots of practice with pretending to care.

Bombing of Lebanon should continue until democracy breaks out.

Mr. President,
Although Cheney and Rice do not like each other, they both seem to agree that the decimation of Lebanon is good for different reasons.

In Rome, Condi sees
opportunity in the Lebanon battle and says Lebanon will be stronger for it in the end with a stronger democracy than what they had before. Does she really believe this crap, is she parroting your misguided and foolish ideals or just stalling for time to allow Israel more time to bomb the crap out of Lebanon?

Mr. "locked and loaded" Cheney, on the other hand uses a different set of rose-colored glasses when he views Lebanon.

Cheney spoke at a fundraising appearance last Friday, for GOP congressional candidate, Gus Bilirakis, a state legislator who is running for the Tampa Bay area congressional seat.
ABC news covered the event and reported that "Vice-president Dick Cheney pointed to the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah as fresh evidence of the ongoing battle against terrorism that underscores the need to keep President Bush's Republican allies in control of Congress."
may02
You had no compunction to politicize the events of 9/11 as part of your reelection campaign so it makes sense that Cheney would politicize the death and destruction in Lebanon to help reelect Republican Congressmen in a desperate attempt to keep Republican in control of both houses and keep himself and you from being impeached.
may06
If Democrats take the House they will hold investigations of every controversial and probably illegal action since you took the office.

I can appreciate the desperate situation you and Cheney find yourself in.

How can Cheney " be so whacked out to think that the resulting and significantly higher level of danger to Americans brought about by all your monumental screw ups can become a plus in a re-election campaign for Republicans?


Speaking about Mr. "Locked-and-Seriously-loaded", he should know about a duck hunter who was recently
diagnosed with a strain of Avian Flu. He might have to wear that chemical suit he carries around with him before he goes shooting for
may04 may05
An American duck hunter and two state wildlife employees had contracted an uncommon type of bird flu virus in their blood. So Cheney better cut back on the number of hunting trips he has to shoot fellow hunters. He may want to hunt in his chemical suit.

The virus found in their blood stream was H11N9 bird virus, which is not known to be dangerous to humans.

The deadly Avian virus circulating in wild and domestic birds is H5N1.

"To our knowledge, this study is the first to show direct transmission of influenza A virus from wild birds to humans," Dr. James Gill of the University of Iowa and colleagues wrote in their report. But the medical implication is that bird virus can and will evolve into a form which will infect humans, so haw far away is the deadly for of bird flu? No one knows, nature will decide that for us. Mother nature is a bitch sometimes.

Speaking about bitches, Neo-conservatives have no apparent love for Condi, but if she can stage for an invasion of Syria and Iran they will be the first to make Condi their pin up girl. Cheney is doing his part by consistently attacking Russia's management of their oil, China's military buildup, North pursuit of beginning Armageddon, and finally Iran and Syria's obvious need to be bend to his will.

The worse the world becomes the more Cheny seems to revel in the ashes of your presidency, like a dog who joyfully rolls around in its own shit.

Why do you hate all Muslims so much?

Mr. President,
Why does America hate Muslims so much? This question is being asked around the world.. Why are they allowing innocent Lebanese men women and children to die at the hands of an overzealous Israeli military? The few deaths on the Israeli side are not getting nearly the press around the world except on Fox.

Every day the volume and intensity of the Arab voices around the world is increasing to a crescendo. The world has grown callous to the Israeli atrocities occurring throughout the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, but the recent bombing and systematic destruction of Lebanese society, the wanton bombing of sewage plants, electrical and water systems are clear violations of the Geneva Convention. Israel's sophisticated weapons, which America provides allowed them to hit Lebanese untilities such as water sewage and electrical systeems have been purposely hit. Today I heard an Israeli general describe the up-coming occupation of Lebanon as a more of a "blitzkrieg" attack. Was this a freudian slip?

The Times just reported, "The decision to quickly ship the
weapons to Israel was made with relatively little debate within the Bush administration, the officials said. Its disclosure threatens to anger Arab governments and others because of the appearance that the United States is actively aiding the Israeli bombing campaign which is comparable to Iran’s arming and resupplying of Hezbollah."

You allowed Gonzalez and Rumsfield to set a wonderful example of how the so-called gold-standard of democracies in the world treat their prisoners. Abu Gharib Guantanimo Haditha and our extraordinary rendition policy are just a few examples of today's American-style democracy. The world has also seen less obvious aspects as well such as the jailing of reporters, the suspension of habeas corpus, the captivity of American citizens for years without access to legal representation, the racist culture, the corruption of our lawmakers, the lack of concern for the poor as shown with the Katrina disaster and unavailability of health insurance to cover even the basic health care needs.


Anti-American/anti-Israeli
demonstrations were held in Arab-speaking nations like Iran, Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Jordan Yemen and even Iraq. Scores of demonstrations around the world also happened in non-Arab nations such as Germany and France.


  • The diplomatic faux pas are adding up and they are cumulative.
22arabs600.1
  • You refused to ask for a cease fire.
  • Your refused to condemn Israel and did the opposite, you are even using the same talking points as Israel.
  • America was the only UN member to block resolution to halt military offensive in the Gaza Strip
  • The U.S. did not send anyone into the area to attempt to stop the violence. You are purposely dragging your feet by kidding yourself that Israel will kill off Hezbollah.
  • You actually said that Israel's bombing is necessary for peace! Sounds like you don't care if Israel bombs the whole country back to the 14th century.
  • The U.S professes to support the fledgling democracy in Lebanon on one hand but not enough to tell Israel to call off or pause the bombing.

Israel invaded two countries with democratically-elected governments and yet we do nothing to intervene. Hamas and Hezbollah's kidnapping of Israeli soldiers, both provoked some type of reaction from Israel, but they went way overboard, and it will haunt both America and Israel for many years to come.

All in all today's fire storm in the Mideast gives your line about democracies not attacking each other, just more bullshit.

What did you tell Putin recently at the G8
conference?
"I talked about my desire to promote institutional change in parts of the world, like Iraq where there's a free press and free religion, and I told him that many people in our country would hope that Russia would do the same," Bush said.
To which Putin responded: "We certainly would not want to have the same kind of democracy that they have in Iraq, quite honestly."

Your administration has given democracy such a bad name. It is the aids-black death, and anthrax of governments all rolled up into one package.

Instead of promoting democracy you have done just the opposite. And you have put those few Arab countries that still talk to us, in peril.


This is going to end badly for America and Israel. Americans can't keep ignoring the level of anger, your neo cons and the insane support for Israel have caused.

Sending Condi to the area is a useless gesture since she is only taking to one side. What is this high school? " We can't talk to Iran, Lebanon and Syria because they hate you." This is called statesmanship it is hard and it means dealing with all kinds of people not just the ones who agree with us. If we had this group around when Russia was sending missiles to Cuba, we would all have been radioactive dust.
