Resolution is a Shambles.
Le Monde: France may send no more than 200 troops as a "symbolic" contribution to the multinational force. Italian soldiers will not be expected to disarm Hezbollah, said Italy's foreign minister Massimo D'Alema. Lebanese government has made a deal with Hezbollah:
1. The Lebanese army, which hopes to muster 7,500 men, will move into Hezbollah's former positions along the Lebanese border with Israel.
2. Hezbollah's fighting force including its rocket and missile launchers will be concentrated in 50 of the 180 villages and towns of South Lebanon, which will be closed to Lebanese troops.
3. The Lebanese army will help Hezbollah gather all its weapons and rockets scattered across the south and transfer them to these Hezbollah controlled strongholds.
4. Hezbollah fighters will not wear uniform or display their weapons in public.
5. A Hezbollah presence will be permitted in all parts of South Lebanon not occupied by Lebanese troops. This includes its reoccupation of the small towns just behind the border like Maroun a Ras and Ayt a-Chaab, the sites of fierce Israeli-Hezbollah battles.
6. Lebanese units will deploy at all the official border crossings into Syria, but not at the dozens of unauthorized crossing points, which will remain under Hezbollah control.
Violation of the resolution. Many countries which volunteered to contribute their troops to Lebanon do not recognize Israel's existence. They include Indonesia, Malaysia and Bangladesh. Most of the participants refuse to take part in disarming Hezbollah. France is sending only 400 solders. (By refusing to disarm Hesbollah, UN participants are being in violation of the resolution. UN resolution 1701 and its implementation is another worthless product of the 'Useless Nothing'!)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Politically Correct Warfare: USA - Al Qaida is still active, Osama bin Laden is still alive, coalition is stuck in Iraq; Israel - The Hesbollah is still active, sheikh Nasrallah is still alive, the ceasefire is not effective and our kidnapped solders are not freed. What a shameful performance!
Syrian has an Option. Syrian president Bashar Assad: "They said peace was the only way but now, after seeing how Hizballah fought, I see an option. Syrian hands will liberate Golan." The Syrian ruler threatened not only Israel but also the government in Beirut. (When gutless and indecisive politicians are in charge, new wars are planned by encouraged, opportunistic rulers!)
Time for Accountability. Demonstrators protested "the defeat in the war in Lebanon" on Thursday evening and called for political leaders responsible for the management of the operations to step down. The demonstrators who crowded Rabin Square in Tel Aviv, held up signs that read, "Defeatists Go Home", "Olmert is a National Disaster".
Our Enemy Jubilant. Arabs and Muslims from Iran, Hizbullah and the PA are celebrating Israel's acceptance of the UN ceasefire, dubbing Israel's "surrender" and calling on Arab states to attack the new "weak" Israel.
Is it all for Nothing Again? Israeli forces swept up to Lebanon's Litani River , losing at least 24 soldiers in fierce battles at Hezbollah strongholds. Massive reinforcements of tanks and troops were sent into southern Lebanon over the weekend in an 11th-hour push before a U.N.-brokered cease-fire came into effect. (Will Israel repeat mistakes of the last Lebanese war? We stayed there for too long, lost too many of our soldiers and did not obtain an international guaranty for the security of the Northern border!)
Another Intifada on Horizon. A Hamas newspaper columnist declared that the Palestinian Authority must leverage what he considers a Hezbollah victory for a renewed terrorist campaign against Israel, a "third intifada."
Useless Nothing at it best again. The United Nations´ new Human Rights Council voted by a large majority to reproach Israel for its actions in Lebanon. The resolution Friday, which condemned Israel for "massive violations of human rights," passed 27 to 11, while eight abstained. (New Council - Old style of anti-Israel bias!)
Jewish Contribution to Humanity.
Charles Ginsburg (1920 - 1992) lead a research team at Ampex Corporation which developed one of the first practical videotape recorders. He was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 1990.
Sylvan Nathan Goldman (1898 - 1984) was a businessman and inventor of the first shopping cart. He introduced the device on June 4, 1937, in the Piggly-Wiggly supermarket chain in Oklahoma City.
Record Immigration to Israel. Over 4,000 new immigrants from all over the world will have arrived in Israel from the beginning of July until the end of August in spite of crisis. (It would be good news if not for the uncontrollable global rise of anti-Semitism.)
Deflecting the Public Anger. Lieutenant General Halutz has been under attack from politicians across the political spectrum for ordering his financial adviser to sell all his stocks, worth about $US27000, three hours after the first Hezbollah cross-border raid. (Israeli political mafia is trying to deflect the attention for a failed war, which is, in fact, due to political interference and a lack of vision. The general exercised common sense - politicians have found the scapegoat!)
Yesha Withdrawal - Not for Now. PM Olmert told Kadima party colleagues this week he realizes that his unilateral withdrawal plan from the West Bank is irrelevant for now. Several Kadima members have been opposing Olmert's plan. (Just for Now! Olmert and Jewish leadership are unable to recognise that enemies of the Jewish people have only one plan - Destruction of Israel!)
Arab Debating Style. In Jenin, the West Bank, two Arab Palestinian families went after each other with knives and clubs at a wedding after one guest cursed the leader of Hezbollah. Seven people were seriously wounded.
Quote of the Week:
"I believe that forgiving Hezbollah is God's function. The Israelis job is to arrange the meeting." - General Norman Schwartzkopf.
Hollywood Against Hezbollah and Hamas. 85 high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls have taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in Los Angeles Times newspaper. "We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organisations such as Hezbollah and Hamas," the ad reads. "If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die." "We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs." (Wow! Even they start to differentiate between the ugliness of reality and fake political correctness.)
Dog bomb. Iraq's Jihadi Factions said it attacked U.S. forces near Baghdad by setting off explosives attached to a dog. Dead dogs stuffed with explosives have been used against U.S. troops in Iraq before. (Why are the animal lovers silent?)
Lebanese general arrested for drinking tea with IDF. A Lebanese general, Adnan Daoud, was arrested last Wednesday for drinking tea with IDF soldiers in south Lebanon barracks. Daoud is commanding officer of the 1,000-strong joint police-army force that had positions in southern Lebanon.
Israeli civilians Snubbed by Media. CNN and many other International media outlets, including SBS in Australia, when reporting on Israel and Lebanon have unveiled the full extent of bias at work behind the global news coverage of the last war in Lebanon. Negligible attention is paid to Israeli civilians, while long, rhetorical and highly inflated reports featuring images and interviews of Lebanese civilians followed. The large number of Israelis who have become displaced from their homes in the north was hardly mentioned.

In an interview with official Iranian news agency IRNA, Rabbi David Weiss, of the Neturei Karta movement, said "Israel was established in the name of Judaism but is impure and Godless. We are sure that it will cease to exist." Neturei Karta is a small group of Ultra-Orthodox Jews who reject all forms of Zionism and oppose the existence of that state of Israel. This stems from their belief that Israel can only truly be re-established with the coming of the Messiah and, subsequently, that any state of Israel prior to this exists in violation of divine will. (This is another side of Jewish self-hate, Gullut mentality or just simple craziness!)
