Meanwhile UNIFIL and the Lebanese Army watch on the sidelines. And the West silently watches Lebanon teeter on the brink.
Though receiving only sparse coverage in much of the Western media today, Hezbollah — Iran’s proxy Talibanesque army in Lebanon — launched a series of armed attacks against civilian villagers (including elderly people, women, and children) in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley last night and this morning.
Reports are sketchy as to what exactly spawned the latest attacks, though it doesn’t take much to kick-start Hezbollah’s gunmen. What is known is that Hezbollah (which, in defiance of UN Security Council Resolutions 1559 and 1701, justifies its existence and weaponry as “necessary” to resist foreign aggression) has increasingly turned its weapons on the Lebanese citizenry.
Last month’s attacks, which began May 7, were launched after the legitimate Lebanese government attempted to remove the Beirut airport security chief after it was discovered he was directly connected to Hezbollah, as well as the government’s discovery of an extensive Hezbollah telecommunications system which the government tried to shut down.
In the end — after Hezbollah’s week-long reign of terror against innocent civilians and pro-democracy supporters (who attempted a brave but somewhat futile defense of their homes and places of business) — the government caved. The army had barely fired a shot. The Hezbollah-connected airport security chief got to keep his job, and his terrorist overlords got to keep their vast telecom system. To pour salt in the proverbial wound, Hezbollah was granted veto power in all government decisions and additional cabinet seats.
Then on May 26, the day after pro-Syrian Gen. Michel Sleiman was sworn in as Lebanon’s president — a deal that was cut in the same regional crisis talks that awarded Hezbollah (and of course, Iran and Syria) its new veto powers — fighting again broke out.
Yes, it was a matter of Hezbollah again attacking members of the pro-democracy movement in that country. And, yes, the scope of that reporting was — as it has been today — negligible.
Now we come to last night: Hezbollah fighters again attacked villagers, and they did so with rocket-propelled grenades, mortars, and light and heavy machineguns.
I have friends who have to share their country these terrorists and get to watch as politicians give away their nation’s sovereignty. Most of them were cheering for Israel to keep bombing Hezbollah back in 2006. But of course the UN, because Israel was attacking muslim terrorists, whined and complained that the terrorists human rights were being violated, and Israel caved into international (dhimmi/appeaser) pressure. Including from the US Government.
Local Lebanese media has a story on the attack here. Good luck finding anything in US or Eurabian… oops, I mean European media.
