The new UN mission in Lebanon is not tasked to disarm Hezbollah, the guerrilla group fighting Israel in south Lebanon, said UN Secretary General Kofi Annan on Friday. "The troops are not going in there to disarm (Hezbollah). Let's be clear on that," Annan told reporters after an extraordinary meeting of the European Union (EU) foreign ministers. UN Security Council Resolution 1559 asks for disarmament of all militia in Lebanon - national and non-national. This was reaffirmed in Resolution 1701, said Annan. "The understanding was that the Lebanese would disarm (Hezbollah). It is also generally accepted that disarmament of Hezbollah cannot be done by force," he said. (Why not? What is the reason for this resolution and UN force? For 6 years UN observers had been fostering the rise and empowerment of Hezbollah in the south of Lebanon! From now they will facilitate the restoration of Hezbollah military power. Why when Israel and Jews are concerned, so-called understandings and interpretations are allowed to distort the initial good intention of UN resolutions?)
On the issue of whether the UN troops would be deployed on the Lebanon-Syria border to stem possible arms provision to Hezbollah, Annan said Resolution 1701 does not require the deployment of UN troops on the border. (No ‘understandings’ here, just an carte-blanch for Hezbollah to re-arm for the next conflict under the protective umbrella of UN!)
Annan’s Bias. Kofi Annan called Israel’s raid on southern Lebanon a violation of the U.N. brokered cease-fire. Israeli sources said the operation was aimed at preventing ammunition and rockets entering Lebanon. (Annan said nothing about preventing supplies of arms to Hezbollah and unwillingness to reinforce the UN resolution and disarm the terrorist organization expressed by Lebanon, France etc. He broke all the rules of neutrality and objectivity that the UN Secretary General is supposed to respect.)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
There are 60 Muslim/Arab countries. Most of them do not like to have non-Muslims as permanent residents. The expansion of the Muslim population to non-Muslim countries creates the excuse for territorial claim – World Caliphate! If the Muslim population would be contained in their own countries, the Western countries and Israel would not have to worry about Islamic terrorism, demographic problem or Muslim votes. This is not racism, but pure logic of self-preservation!
Sad Reality. An Orthodox U.S. Jewish group, The National Council of Young Israel, is offering its synagogues self-defence and prevention strategies to protect against potential attacks. (It is a sad and ugly reality! Again Jews are not safe in US and in other democratic countries. The policy of appeasement and stupidity of political correctness allowed, predominantly Muslim based, anti-Semitism to flourish in the Americas, Australia and Europe!)
Hamas is liquidating Fatah Activists. Hamas is liquidating Fatah activists in the Gaza Strip one by one. The Fatah presence in the Gaza Strip will be gone in three months. In three or four years, the Gaza Strip will be just like South Lebanon, in the view of the Shin Bet director.
Moving embassy from Jerusalem. Costa Rica has said it will move its embassy in Israel from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv. El Salvador's foreign ministry announced on Friday that, despite statements to the contrary earlier in the month, it would in fact be following Costa Rica’s lead. (This is another casualty of failed war in Lebanon and complete lack of self-respect exhibited by Israeli government led by Olmert!)
Kidnapped Journalists in Gaza. A previously unknown militant group, the "Holy Jihad Brigades" has kidnapped American journalists Steve Centanni and New Zealand cameraman Olaf Wiig on August 14. PA leaders including Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of the Hamas have called for the release of the captives. PA forces are scouring Gaza for them. (But, the world is not concerned about kidnapped Israeli solders in Gaza and Lebanon!) The journalists appeared on new videotape released by their captors on Sunday, saying they had converted to Islam. (Forceful conversion or death! This is the true face of Islam that awaiting World!)
Jewish Contribution to Humanity.
Emile Berliner (1851 - 1929) was an inventor, best known for developing the gramophone (phonograph). He was born in Hanover, Germany and emigrated to the United State in 1870.
Peter Carl Goldmark (1906 - 1977) was a Hungarian-born, American engineer who, during his time with Columbia Records, was instrumental in developing the long-playing (LP) microgroove 33-1/3 rpm vinyl phonograh discs which defined home audio for two generations.
Iran is the Puppet Master. Iran wants Italy to help negotiate the release of two Israeli soldiers kidnapped in Lebanon. Italy has been told the soldiers are alive but not in “great condition,” said Sergio De Gregorio, head of the Italian Senate’s Defense Committee. Ali Larijani, Iran’s national security chief, told De Gregorio that he would ask Hezbollah to conduct negotiations through Italy. (This is clear indication that Iran is in full control of Hezbollah)
Gibsons’ Deep-rooted anti-Semitism. Investigative reporter Philip Recchia revealed on August 21 that Mel Gibson and his father, Hutton, have in recent years attended a dinner sponsored by the Australian League of Rights, a group that denies the Holocaust. (Fake apologies are not welcomed and not acceptable any more!)
Hezbollah is Actively Smuggling. Hezbollah is smuggling hundreds of rockets and dozens of launchers into S. Lebanon without any interference. Hezbollah is also working on the rehabilitation of its short-range rocket “Nasser” Brigade – all under cover of the stream of returning south Lebanese refugees.
Useless Resolution. Foreign Minister Massimo D’Alema stated “We expect a renewed effort, this time truly binding, to respect the cease-fire,” D’Alema said in an interview published Tuesday. “It’s fair to expect that Hezbollah put down their weapons, but we cannot send our troops to Lebanon” if the Israeli army keeps shooting. (Delays and procrastination only help Hezbollah to re-arm and re-group.)
Quote of the Week:
“…being under the protection of America
comes with an extremely
high price tag. That of loss of independence in areas of war and peace and just about everything else that might impinge on U.S. foreign interests.” – by Elie Oren.
U.S. opens inquiry. The U.S. State Department was investigating whether Israel's use of U.S.-made cluster bombs in Lebanon violated secret agreements between the two allies. (Another ‘nice and friendly’ behaviour of the friend! What was the reason for Israel to buy those bombs? Are they a collector’s item? How much do the US companies profit from selling arms to Israel and how many jobs are created in US?)
Forest Burned by Missiles. Due to fires caused by Hezbollah-fired Katyusha missiles, thousands of acres of forest were destroyed across northern Israel. Up to (International media does not care about and does not cover the environmental damage in Israel caused by war!)
Syria Threatens UN. Syrian president Bashar Assad said earlier that the deployment of troops along the Lebanese-Syrian border would be a hostile move and threatened to close the border with Lebanon. (Any ‘little piglet’ is taken a grand stand when the state sovereignty is involved. Only Israel endlessly bowing to international pressure with complete self-disrespect!)
Forced from Homes. Fighting between Sri Lanka's Tamil Tiger rebels and security forces has forced at least 204,000 people from their homes in the eastern and northern parts of the country, the U.N. food agency said. (No UN resolution, No International outrage, No UN peacekeeping force! Why not? Sudan is forgotten too!)
Stop Shifting. Following mismanagement of the war, Israelis believe top government and defense officials Olmert, Peretz and Halutz should be replaced. Voting tendencies are shifting from left to center. Up to 71 percent of the public believes Olmert is no longer competent to lead the country. (Israel will only win and stop aggression of Arab countries when Jews start to believe in Eretz-Israel - Land of Israel and stop endless “shifting” from one side to another! Remember that only our strong conviction helped us to win the war of independence!)
There’s a holy war going on in New York City and around the world: Jews for Jesus are making a proseletizing effort in the city that has never been larger.
In the atmosphere of uncertainty and the lack of leadership, both political and spiritual, Jews are vulnerable. Many Evangelical Christian groups wage spiritual war against survival of Jewish people. The Church could not destroy us during 2000 years of operation with the fire and rope. Now they hide behind the mask of love toward Jews. But the objective is the same as during Inquisition or Holocaust - destruction Jewish souls - Physical and Spiritual! (This is another war that Jews have been subjected to for a long time! As usual, there is no leadership and willingness to organize a united front against it!)
