Ceasefire is bad for Israel - Gov´t Must Go!
Columnist Caroline Glick & int'l legal scholar Prof. A. Bayefsky analysed the ceasefire resolution, concluding it is an "unmitigated disaster" for Israel.
*Responsibility for determining compliance is in the hands of UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who has "distinguished himself as a man capable only of condemning Israel…
*The resolution makes no operative call for the release of IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev being held hostage by Hezbollah…
*No arms embargo against Hezbollah...
*No mention of Hezbollah-patrons Syria or Iran, thus ignoring the regional aspect of the war.
*Rewarding Hezbollah's aggression by giving international legitimacy…
*The resolution calls upon Israel to withdraw all of its forces from southern Lebanon even before Lebanese and UNIFIL forces are fully deployed...
*By handing a victory to Hezbollah, the resolution strengthens the belief of millions of supporters of jihad throughout the world that their side is winning and that they should redouble efforts to achieve their objectives of destroying Israel and running the US out of the Middle East.
"There is no mistake Ehud Olmert did not make this past month. He went to war hastily, without properly gauging the outcome."
Lebanese minister Marwan Hamadi, a Druze, accused Hassan Nasrallah Sunday night of reneging on his pledge to abide by the UN ceasefire. – Enemies of Jewish people never keep their word, particularly the Arab ones!
Almost 250 Hezbollah rockets ravaged N. Israel before the useless Cease-Fire. Over 4,000 Hezbollah rockets hit northern Israel since the war began.
Two Grad-Katyusha missiles, fired by Arabs in Gaza , struck the marina in the Israeli city of Ashkelon Monday morning.
What Resolution? What Ceasefire?
Lebanon's Defense Minister Elias Murr told LBC Television, "The army is not going to the south to strip Hezbollah of weapons and do the work Israel did not." Lebanese Government will allow Hezbollah stay armed – provided weapons are hidden.
The French commander of UNIFIL, Maj.-Gen. Alain Pellegrini, said Tuesday that his peacekeeping force will not attempt to disarm Hezbollah. Dealing with Hezbollah was an internal Lebanese matter.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
It is the willingness of the Jewish people and the determination of our leadership will resolve the conflict once and for all by re-gaining full control over Eretz-Israel, Land of Israel, beginning with clearing Gaza of its hostile Arab population. Everything else is just a 'feel-good' exercise!
Kidnappers Blast Israel for 'Kidnapping'. The OIC, Organization of the Islamic Conference, called the detention of Abdelaziz Dwaik a "kidnapping" and "a flagrant breach of the international law". "The crimes committed by Israel against unarmed innocent civilians in Gaza demonstrates once again the urgent need for a serious and swift action by the international community…" (The Kidnappings and rocket attacks that were initially committed by the Arab terrorists of Hamas and Hesbollah, have never bothered the OIC or the international community.)
Hezbollah Drone over Israel. The Israel Air Force shot down an unmanned Hezbollah drone over Israeli territorial waters weak ago near the Krayot suburbs north of Haifa. On Sunday, Israel shot down another two Iranian-made Hezbollah drones it suspects were laden with explosives heading toward Israel.
Peace Activist Murdered by Arab Palestinian. Angelo Frammartino, a 24 year-old Italian student, planned to set up summer camp for Palestinians. He was stabbed in the back while walking with four friends.
Hezbollah 'Accepts' UN Ceasefire. Hezbollah will abide by the U.N. cease-fire resolution but will continue fighting as long as Israeli troops remain in south Lebanon. Two Hezbollah ministers have indicated that they do not accept the demand that the group disarm in southern Lebanon. (UN resolution demonstrated a lack of interest in the genuine resolution of the conflict, utilizing duplicity, disinformation and behaving with complete stupidity!)
Peretz: It is a War, Not a Military Operation. Defense Minister Amir Peretz stated the current military situation "is a war, not a military operation." The senior minister added that if diplomatic efforts fail, the IDF will be given approval to advance far into Lebanon and take necessary measures to halt rocket attacks. (Amazing, it only took a month for him to realize the obvious! What an intellectual genius!)
Jewish Contribution to Humanity.
Ruth Handler (1916 - 2002) was an American businesswoman, the president of the toy manufacturer Mattel, Inc, and is remembered primarily for her role in marketing the Barbie doll.
US Marines Trained in Israel. This spring unit of 350 to 400 fellow Marines became one of the first to do "conscription service" with the IDF and Israeli naval commandos, studying house-to-house and counter-terrorism fighting, and swapping military techniques with units he calls the "elite of the elite in Israel."
Iranians Among the Dead in Lebanon. IDF officials report that the bodies of members of Iran 's Revolutionary Guard were among the dead terrorists in southern Lebanon. Identification was confirmed by papers carried by the dead terrorists.
Forgotten War with Hamas. MK Avigdor Lieberman said the PA is preparing to wage a war on southern Israel modeled on the Hezbollah military strategy. He also expressed criticism of the media for ignoring the ongoing PA Kassam rocket attacks on the cities of the Negev. PA terrorists are "smuggling Katyushas and Grad missiles into the Gaza Strip. The southern Lebanon script must be prevented in southern Israel." (Still, no one is considering the clearing Gaza from the enemies of Israel!) Two members of FOX's News crew have been kidnapped in Gaza City. (Busyness as usual!)
US and Europe on Terror Alert. US raises terror alert to orange, Belgium and Germany cancel flights to UK, after Britain foils a major terror plot to blow up 10 UK planes bound for the United States. (Welcome to a new ugly reality: Philippines, Thailand, India, Israel, Africa, Europe and Americas have been under Islamic attack for many years, but they still do not know what to do. They are still playing games!)
Hezbollah man in Israeli hospital. A wounded Hezbollah gunman was taken Haifa 's Rambam Hospital under guard on Sunday after Israeli troops discovered him in the aftermath of weekend clashes in south-western Lebanon.
Quote of the Week:
"Small minds discuss people. Average minds discuss events. Great minds discuss ideas." – Unknown.
Parade of Self-Hate. Police in Jerusalem said they would bar a gay protest at a city park. But organizers of Thursday evening's event near Liberty Bell Park said they would go ahead with the demonstration. (In the time of national danger, Jewish self-haters organized self-promotional demonstration. They never cared about Jewish national unity. The self-hate is and always has been the main motivation!)
Gaza girl 'not killed by strike'. A three-year-old girl who had been reported killed by an Israeli air strike in Gaza last week actually died of an accident. (Another Arab PR 'production'!)
Russian Weapons in Lebanon. Hezbollah is using sophisticated Russian-made anti-tank missiles RPG-29, which were sold to Syria by Russia. It was promised that Russian arms would not fall into the hands of Hezbollah. (This is the Russian way of fighting global Islamic terrorism!)
Another Indiscriminate Killing. A 5-year-old toddler and his mother were killed Thursday morning by one of 165 rockets were fired at Israel by Hezbollah in the Israeli Arab village of Dir Al-Assad in the Western Galilee. (Still there is no UN condemnation of Hezbollah for killing innocent civilians, even non-Jewish ones!)
97% of PA Arabs Support Hezbollah. Among Christian Arabs in the PA, 95% said they support Hezbollah. Over 90% said the kidnapped Israeli soldiers should not be freed unconditionally, while 6% said they should never be returned. 55% of those polled said they identify with Hezbollah's goal of destroying Israel. (Christians or Muslims, most Arabs are enemies of the state of Israel. Time has come to realize it and let them join their brothers and sisters in Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia!)
Tourist Stabbed in Jerusalem. A tourist from Europe was stabbed to death Thursday in Jerusalem's Old City by a young Arab attacker. Israeli security forces thwarted a planned suicide bombing in the West Bank by two Arab women. (Under the cloud of the war, the 'terror business' in Israel is still business as usual!)
