Iranian, Syrian Backed: Arab Islamic Hezbollah Global Terrorists

Huzbollah is a radical Shi’a Muslim organization fighting against Israel and “western imperialism” in Lebanon, and has advocated since its beginning (1982) for an Islamic State, Tehran style[1]. The group does not recognize the legitimacy of the State of Israel. Hezbollah refers to itself with multiple titles including the “Organization of the Oppressed on Earth” and the “Revolutionary Justice Organization.” Its main goal is the establishment of an Islamic government across the Arab world that will “liberate” Jerusalem and the entire area of the present-day State of Israel.

It is financed and armed by Iran and enjoys full backing from Syria. Hezbollah was founded with the help of Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

Syria backs Hizballah morally and has also supplied it with money and arms. In return, Hizballah protects Syria’s political and military interests in Lebanon. [2][3]

The two major leaders of Hezbollah are Secretary General Sheikh Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and the organization’s spiritual chief, Sheikh Muhammad Husayn Fadlallah, both named “specially designated global terrorists” by the U.S. government. [4]

It was founded and continued, and still is marked by violence, locally and worldwide, though, recently, it tries to portray itself as a mere “political” party. It has been said that: “The very year Hezbollah was founded it became the most lethal terrorist organization in Lebanon” & “neither had ever managed to spill so much blood in a single incident.” [5]

Funding

Dirty Money, Blood Money

Criminal funding

The Lebanese Shiite Terrorist Organization has been highlighted as a profile in “Crime and Terrorism” – Hezbollah’s Criminal activity is widely in Lebanon and worldwide [6], or what researches call: “various criminal enterprises to raise funds for Hezbollah.” [7] Among the illegal, criminal methods of the Islamic group is wide fraud, drug trafficking, credit card fraud & cigarette smuggling, it has been known that “Cigarette Smuggling Funds Terrorism.” [8] [9] In a 2009 report on “Hezbollah: narco-Islamism Middle East Strategy at Harvard” researchers have found that: ‘more than any other Islamist group, Hezbollah has a long record of engaging in criminal activity to support its activities.’ [10] [11]

Latin America

The ‘Hezbollah’s global finance network’ includes “The Triple Frontier” (in South America) – “Argentina, Brasil & Paraguay.” [12], [13]

There’s an extensive report on “Hezbollah and the Drug Trade in South America” – Hezbollah is active in the drug trade in Colombia, a web of criminality that extends from Lebanon to Africa to South America. [14]

Douglas Farah wrote in 2006 on “Hezbollah’s External Support Network in West Africa and Latin America” that Hezbollah, has the largest financial structure in Latin America and it is similar to that in of the organization’s Africa structure, that is to say, structured along family/clan lines. These clans have family members across the continent’s main free trade zones of Panama, (Venezuela’s) Isla Margarita and the TBA (tri-border area), allowing for multiple opportunities to launder funds by over invoicing stocks, under invoicing merchandise and thtough the use of little-monitored electronic money transfer systems and bulk money smuggling. The first study of this overlapping clan structure spread across broad geographic areas was not undertaken until 2004.

The TBA has for years drawn attention as a center for contraband smuggling, drug trafficking and large-scale money laundering, in part because all of the countries whose borders are involved profit from the illicit trade. It is also an easy place to hide and move money. Estimates of the amount of drug money alone laundered through the two main urban centers in the TBA, Foz do Iguacu and Ciudad del Este, range as high as $12 billion a year. [15]

From a 2003 research on Hezbollah “Hezbollah: A Case Study of Global Reach”: Hezbollah is also active in Chile, Venezuela, Cuba, Panama and Ecuador. [16]

Counter terrorism expert Steven Emerson wrote in 2007 in an article titled “Blood Money: Hezbollah’s revenue stream flows through the Americas”:

A New Front. Hezbollah operatives have frequently sought out sympathetic members of the Lebanese Diaspora to assist them, several of whom have owned and operated Lebanese restaurants. Salim Boughader Mucharrafille, owner of Cafe La Libanesa in Tijuana, Mexico, was arrested in December 2002 for running a ring that allegedly smuggled at least 200 Lebanese compatriots into the United States , including an employee of Al- Manar, Hezbollah’s television station. Although it was never confirmed, Boughader was suspected of having helped Kourani to slip over the border. Last May, a Mexican judge sentenced Boughader to 14 years in prison for organized crime and human smuggling.
The case of Rady Zaiter, a.k.a. David Assi Alvarez, is an example of drug-running activities designed to benefit Hezbollah, using a restaurant as a front. In June 2005, Ecuadorian police broke up an international drug-trafficking ring led by the owners of El Turco restaurant: Zaiter and his partner, Maher Hamajo. The restaurant in Quito served as the logistical center for the ring’s activities. Drug mules carried cocaine in double bottomed suitcases bound for other countries in South America, as well as Europe and the Middle East. According to investigating authorities, Hezbollah received at least 70 percent of the drug money. Additionally, officials confiscated more than $150,000 and 2,000 euros. Further arrests were made in Brazil, Syria and the Dutch Antilles, bringing the total apprehended to 19 people. El Turco, like the Detroit-area restaurant La Shish that was recently allegedly linked to Hezbollah, was a very popular restaurant, appreciated by the locals. [4]

In 2008, Colombia smashed a drug ring tied to Hezbollah, Colombian authorities said that they had broken up a drug and money-laundering ring in an international operation that included the capture of three suspects from the Middle East who used profits from the drug trade to fund Hezbollah.

More than 100 suspects were arrested in Colombia and overseas on charges that they trafficked drugs and laundered cash for Colombia’s Norte del Valle cartel and outlawed paramilitaries, in a network that stretched from South America to Asia. “The criminal organization used routes through Venezuela, Panama, Guatemala, the Middle East and Europe, bringing in cash from the sale of these substances,” the statement said. [17][18]

From ‘Inside Homeland Security’ 2009:

Muslim businessmen operating companies in Panama “for many years” have laundered funds for Hezbollah, Hamas and the PLO.[19]

U.S.

The Washington Times had an editorial (2005) on ‘Hezbollah in America,’ a 41-year-old businessman, was arrested at his Dearborn home on charges of smuggling funds to Hezbollah.[20] In 2009, a grand jury in Philadelphia indicted four men in connection with a plot to support Hezbollah through schemes like buying machine guns.[21]

Al-Mabarrat has a U.S.-based branch headquartered in Dearborn, Mich. Founded in 1991, the Al-Mabarrat Charitable Organization-USA, Inc., has repeatedly changed its name over the past 15 years. Although Al-Mabarrat acknowledges on its Web site that it works in conjunction with the Al-Mabarrat Association in Lebanon (whose logo it shares), it omits the fact that Al-Mabarrat Lebanon is run by Sheikh Fadlallah. Despite Al- Mabarrat USA’s direct link to a Fadlallah-controlled organization, the U.S. branch continues to operate unfettered.

Hezbollah’s use of Al-Mabarrat as a fund-raising front is a savvy strategic move, mirroring a tactic long exploited by terrorist groups operating on U.S. soil. By utilizing charities, terrorists can generate popular support by providing some legitimate services, attract contributions from donors both unwitting and aware, and attempt to obscure financial trails. But such operations extend far beyond the United States. [4]

Europe

There’s a serious “Hezbollah’s Terrorist Threat to the European Union” writes The Heritage (2007) [22]. From a report on “Hezbollah Around the World” – Arabs, Muslims in Germany have been key fund raising center for Hezbollah. through crimes of: drug trafficking, weapons and people smuggling, document and currency fraud. [23] From a May 2010 report: ‘Hezbollah funded by drug trade in Europe,’ German police arrested Lebanese men who transferred millions of Euros to family connected to Hezbollah. [24][25]

Hezbollah has established several front charities, mainly operating from Great Britain and Germany, to raise funds earmarked to support the group’s members in Lebanon . For example, the British-based Lebanese Welfare Committee, HELP Charity Association for Relief and Abrar Islamic Foundation are among the charities suspected of channeling funds to Sheikh Nasrallah and Hezbollah. [4]

U.S. Mexican border

Hezbollah is also accused of using the same southern narcotics routes that Mexican drug kingpins use, that Hezbollah members have entered the U.S. border through drug cartel. [26][27] The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review wrote an article on ‎Apr 10, 2009, “The Hezbollah threat: It’s here, now.” [28]

Blood diamonds

The Associated Press reported on “Blood diamonds fund Hezbollah” (2004): that Lebanon’s Hezbollah guerrilla movement is systematically siphoning profits from West Africa’s multimillion-dollar diamond trade, in part by threatening the Lebanese merchants who long have handled much of the region’s diamond business, US diplomats in West Africa charge.

The pervasive claim is wider –on organised and co-ercive Hezbollah profiteering from West Africa’s diamond trade– than most US officials have previously acknowledged.

“One thing that’s incontrovertible is the financing of Hezbollah. It’s not even an open secret; there is no secret,” Larry Andre, deputy chief of mission for the US Embassy in diamond-rich Sierra Leone, told The Associated Press. [29][30]

T. Schure wrote in “Blood Diamonds: Still Bloody” (May 14, 2010) that West Africa is a well known transit center for smuggled diamonds, especially for Lebanese traders, with many sales funding criminal and terrorist groups including Hezbollah. [31]

Douglas Farah in the Washington Post: “Digging Up Congo’s Dirty Gems; Officials Say Diamond Trade Funds Radical Islamic Groups”, that diamond dealers and intelligence sources said Hezbollah and other groups buy diamonds in. Congo — sometimes through middlemen, sometimes directly.

European and American intelligence sources have long known that Hezbollah has raised significant amounts of money in West Africa through the largely Shiite Muslim Lebanese communities in Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Togo. There are an estimated 120,000 Lebanese in West Africa, mostly involved in import-export businesses.

“Hezbollah is active in all these countries and are deeply involved in many businesses across the region,” said one European official tracking the movement. “It is only a small part of the Lebanese community that is sympathetic, but many people contribute to them just to keep Hezbollah off their backs.”

For at least since the early 1980s, Hezbollah had also raised some cash through the sale of diamonds from Sierra Leone, intelligence sources said. Bah, they said, was long suspected of brokering diamond deals through buyers connected to Hezbollah, assisted by sympathetic Lebanese businessmen across the region. [32]

Character, racism, fascism

A writer in the Christian Science Monitor explains that “Hizbullah’s real goal is racist: To free the Middle East holy lands of Jews… Hizbullah’s goal is not the “liberation” of Palestine. Its members are not Palestinian. They are (Arab) Islamic extremists who want to “liberate” all Islamic land.”[33]

Its Al-Manar television is infamous for being racist, several European countries, including France, Spain, Germany and the Netherlands, as well as Australia, have also taken measures to block Al-Manar. In March 2005, the broadcasting regulators in the European Union agreed to ban satellite broadcasting of Al-Manar on the basis that the channel carried racist material and incitement. As a result, several satellite service providers, most of them European, dropped Al-Manar, making it unavailable in North and South America, Asia and Australia. Al-Manar, is, however, still available in Europe through Arab satellite companies and its Web site offers English, French and Spanish translations of its material. [34]

On its TV, Jews are termed pigs and monkeys (stemming from radical Islamic teaching of “apes & pigs” – branding Christians as pigs, Jews as apes [18][19][20][21][22][23]) and the Holocaust is denied. Participants in a network-sponsored symposium urge that Israel “be completely wiped out” and “just like Hitler fought the Jews” the “great Islamic nation of Jihad” should “fight the Jews and burn them.” [35]

It has been written in an article titled “Hezbollah’s Nazi roots” that “Hezbollah’s Nazi salute evokes memories of Hitler’s support for Arab agitators such as the Grand Mufti (al-Husayni) of Jerusalem and the leaders of a pro-Nazi coup.”[36]

From the book, ‘Planting hatred, sowing pain: the psychology of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict’:

Palestinians are constantly exposed to cultural products that expouse classical anti-Semitic ideas. Fir example, a television series produced by Hezbollah, the south Lebanon Shiite militia group, titled Al-Shatat. This series is focused oin the old middle-ages myth of the blood libel (in which Jews –supposedly– need the blood of Christian children for the Passover matzoth). [37]

Related, from an ADL speech:

In recent years, Jews were killed because they were Jews, something we have not witnessed since World War II, at the hands of jihadists. There was the Buenos Aires bombings of the Israeli embassy and the Jewish center; there was the kidnapping and murder of Daniel Pearl in Pakistan; there was the kidnapping and murder of Ilan Halimi in Paris; and there was the attack on the Seattle Jewish Federation. Hamas and Hezbollah do not want to kill for land, but to eliminate Jews and a Jewish presence.

[38]

Nasrallah & the Jews

Within a month of Nasrallah’s taking over as leader, Hezbollah (with the help of Iranian intelligence) bombed the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, killing 29 and injuring over 200. The next attack perpetrated by Hezbollah—again with Iranian help—was the bombing of the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, killing 86 and injuring over 200.

The widening arena of Hezbollah’s attacks stemmed from Nasrallah’s perception that Jews anywhere are legitimate targets. In fact, Nasarallah has said:

If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide. (Daily Star, Oct. 23, 2002)[39][40][41][42]

Shiite scholar Amal Saad-Ghorayeb analyzed the anti-Jewish roots of Hezbollah ideology in her book Hezbollah: Politics & Religion. In it, she quotes Hassan Nasrallah describing his antipathy toward Jews:

If we searched the entire world for a person more cowardly, despicable, weak and feeble in psyche, mind, ideology and religion, we would not find anyone like the Jew. Notice, I do not say the Israeli. (New Yorker, Oct. 14, 2002)[43]

Nasrallah also incoroporates anti-Semitic rhetoric in speeches. For example, he has characterized Jews as the “grandsons of apes and pigs” and “Allah’s most cowardly and greedy creatures.” (MEMRI: Al- Manar, Feb. 3, 2006) [44][45]

In 1998, Ashura commemorations of Hessein’s martyrdom coincided with Israel’s fiftieth anniversary. Nasrallah used the occasion to lambaste Israelis as “the descendants of apes and pigs. “A few million vagabonds from all over the world, brought together…” [46][47][48]

Iran’s arm: “Big Satan, Little Satan”

Israel and the United States as Portrayed in the Doctrine of Hezbollah:

1) Hatred of Israel (“that vile microbe”) and the Jewish people, –As an arm of Iran it regards, [49] [50] [51] [52] [53] [54] and it seeks to– Eradicating the ‘Little Satan.’ 2) Hatred of the United States (“the big Satan”) [55]

Death cult, suicide missions, martyrdom philosophy, inventing ‘mass casualty’ bombing

The doctrine of Hezbollah: Suicide attacks (“the shortest road to Allah”) are of supreme value. [56]

In May 2006, Nasrallah appeared on the network to explain that “our nation’s willingness to sacrifice their blood, souls, children, fathers, and families” is an advantage over the Jews “who guard their lives.” [57]

The modern, high-casualty suicide attack, which has changed our lives irreversibly, was invented by Hezbollah in Lebanon in 1982. [5]

To attack the multinational forces, Hezbolah invented a terrible new weapon–the suicide truck bomb. The group loaded several hundred pounds of explosives into a truck. A member of the group–someone prepared to sacrifice his or her life–would drive the truck in front of an embassy or into a military base. The driver then set off the explosives with a control switch in the truck’s cab. The detonation would instantly destroy the driver, the truck, and any buildings or people standing within several hundred feet. Sheikh Fadlallah and Hezbollah never took credit for these attacks. As a Shi’ite cleric, Fadlallah knew that Islam would get tarnished by terrorism and the killing of innocent civilians. Fadlallah also claimed to be running the Hezbollah as a political, not a military organization. However, as Many Islamic nation have declared jihads against enemies. For this reason, an organization calling itself the “Islamic Jihad” publicly claimed responsibility for terrorists acts in Lebanon. For several years, the United States and other governments tried to find out who was running the Islamic Jihad. In fact, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad were one and the same. [58]

Regional plans

Amongst its stated objectives is the establishment of a Shiite theocracy in Lebanon. [59] Hezbollah’s goal is the establishment of an Islamic state encompassing Lebanon and Israel. [60] Many in the Lebanese Christian diaspora, beyond the reach of Hezbollah intimidation, speak out forcefully against turning Lebanon into a Shia theocracy emulating Iran. [61]

Global Plans

The Associated Press reported in May, 2010, that a Muslim cleric calls for ‘Greater Iran’ – Shi’ite Islamic union would stretch from Afghanistan to Israel. Ayatollah Mohammad Bagher Kharrazi said the creation of what he termed an “Islamic United States” is a central aim of the political party he leads – called Hizbullah, or Party of God. He added that he hoped to make his vision a reality if the party won the next presidential election. “The Islamic United States will be an introduction to the formation of the global village of the oppressed and that will be a prelude to the single global rule of the Mahdi,” the newspaper quoted him as saying. [62][63]

Violence, Bloodshed

Their known spreading of violence & bloodshed includes:

Regional: Lebanon, Israel

Kidnappings, torture

Hezbollah’s founding quickly resulted in a spate of kidnappings, torture. [64] Among the notorious victims were: William Francis Buckley, Terry Anderson, William Richard Higgins.

Hezbollah’s founding quickly resulted in a spate of kidnappings, torture. [63] Among the notorious victims were: William Francis Buckley, Terry Anderson, William Richard Higgins.

In March, 1984, Hezbollah operatives kidnapped William Francis Buckley, the CIA’s station chief in Lebanon. He was whisked to Damascus and on to Tehran, where, after 15 months of torture, he succumbed to a heart attack. [65]

Feb. 17, 1988: The group kidnaps Col. William Higgins, a U.S. Marine serving with a United Nations truce monitoring group in Lebanon, and later murders him.

The United States asserts that top Hezbollah military commander who was one of America’s most wanted men, accused of involvement in a string of bombings, hijackings and kidnappings during the 1980s and 1990s, Imad Mughniyeh, was also behind the torture and murder of William Buckley, the CIA station chief in Beirut, in 1984; the kidnapping, torture and murder of Lieutenant Colonel William Richard Higgins of the Marines, who was on peacekeeping duty in Lebanon in 1988; and, through the Islamic Jihad Organization, the seizure of Western hostages in Beirut during the 1980s. [66] [67] [68]

From a legal claim against Iran:

In the instant case the evidence once again discloses that Iran provided Hezbollah with funding, direction and training for its terrorist activities in Lebanon, including the kidnapping and torture of Terry Anderson hezbollah kidnapping torture and his imprisonment as a hostage for 2,454 days. [69]

Dec. 31, 1986: Under the alias Organization of the Oppressed on Earth, Hezbollah announces it had kidnapped and murdered three Lebanese Jews. The organization previously had taken responsibility for killing four other Jews since 1984. [70]

The 1985 Hezbollah torture-murder of Isaac Tarab, 63, and Chaim Halala Cohen, 39, the 1986 Hezbollah’s torturing to death of Ibrahim Benesti, aged 54, of Beirut, and his elderly relatives, Yehudah and Yosef, Benesti’s family – like many Lebanese Jews – had been in Lebanon since 2,000 B.C. (before the birth of Mohammed), [described as a charitable and kindly candy store owner who gave free candy to children of all religions]. All these crimes were motivated for no other reason than for the victims simply being Jewish.[71] See: Character, racism, fascism.

The Time had a detailed piece by William Dowell in May 23, 1988 titled: “Three Years in the Belly of Beirut”:

“They weren’t human or inhuman. They were nonhuman.” That was how French Journalist Jean-Paul Kauffmann, quoting fellow hostage Michel Seurat, , described the pro-Iranian Islamic Jihad terrorists who held him hostage for three years. The wrenching account of his kidnaping, captivity and release appeared last week in L’Evenement du Jeudi, the French newsmagazine Kauffmann worked for when he and French Researcher Seurat were abducted in May 1985.
The two men became hostages by chance after missing a Beirut airport bus and deciding to take a taxi. When a Mercedes pulled alongside and ordered them to stop, they expected a robbery. Instead they were forced into the back of the gunmen’s car. What followed was three years of intimidation and psychological torture.
For more than a year, the hostages never saw daylight. Their only diversion was reading the handful of books provided by their jailers; Kauffmann read War and Peace more than 20 times. At one point, he and Seurat listened while their Shi’ite captors spent eight days torturing an Arab suspected of being a spy. When it was over, Kauffmann’s jailer joked, “I damaged him a little. He had two broken ribs. We broke both his legs. Finally he talked, and we set him free.” Freedom, Kauffmann learned, was a euphemism for death.
In one of the most bizarre episodes, Seurat was allowed a brief visit in August 1985 with his wife and daughters in Beirut, and then returned to the cell loaded down with sociology books. It was the last time he saw his family. A month later, he was deathly ill with hepatitis. A Lebanese Jewish doctor, Elie Hallat, who was also a hostage, pleaded in vain for Seurat’s release. As his condition worsened, a Shi’ite commander volunteered a transfusion. “You are becoming a Shi’ite,” joked a captor after Seurat was given blood. In fact, the researcher was dying. By then French Hostages Marcel Carton and Marcel Fontaine had been added to the group. “So I am going to die,” Seurat told his friends.
In March 1986, the Islamic Jihad announced that it had “executed” Seurat. It seems likely, however, that he succumbed, at 39, to his disease. But the jailers told the hostages he was alive and recovering in a hospital. Kauffmann later learned from a radio newscast that Hallat, doomed by his captors’ rabid anti-Semitism, had been executed. Kauffmann, Carton and Fontaine were continually moved from apartment to apartment. At one point Kauffmann was wrapped in bandages like a mummy, sealed in a metal box and bolted under the chassis of a truck. When he banged on the side, he was told he would be shot. “Kill me,” he snapped back. “It doesn’t make any difference.”
At another point Kauffmann and Fontaine were tied together and placed in a coffin. When they were let out for a moment, Fontaine peered under his blindfold and saw that they were near a cement factory. “They’re going to kill us here, put our bodies in cement and dump us in the sea,” said Fontaine. Later Kauffmann and Fontaine were put in a new cell and chained like animals to a spike in the floor. [72]

At a 2008 proisoner swap-deal, Israel was forced to make with Hezbollah, Bradley Burston wrote “The pleasure that Hezbollah takes in torture.”

Few innocent people have been tortured like the loved ones of the people murdered by Samir Kuntar, the Palestine Liberation Front monster convicted of a crime so brutal that even the designation terrorist is too good for him. This week, the loved ones will know that Kuntar will be feted to a hero’s welcome staged by Hezbollah, whose claims to being a religious organization, stain the word religious with a level of sadism that is astonishing, reaching new levels with every gloat by the torture master who calls himself a spiritual leader, Hassan Nasrallah. But that will be only one aspect of the glee with which Hezbollah will likely take explicit pride and claim exultant victory.

Not satisfied with keeping the families of kidnapped IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev in the dark for two years as to their fate, a Lebanese report which appears to have been leaked by Hezbollah two days before the prisoner swap, stated that one of the soldiers had survived the kidnapping attack, but that the other was surely dead.

Then, to torture the families further, the report refrained from revealing which of the two had been killed, or whether the other was still alive. But for sheer gratuitous sadism, the case of Samir Kuntar has few rivals. Consider the survivors of Kuntar’s acts of murder. Consider Smadar Haran, a survivor of the 1979 attack led by Kuntar. Kuntar burst into Haran’s apartment building in the dead of night, seizing Smadar Haran’s husband Danny and their daughter Einat, 4 years old. Desperate to save their two-year-old girl Yael, Smadar Haran huddled with her in a crawl space in the attic. “I will never forget the joy and the hatred in the voices [of Kuntar and his men] as they swaggered about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades,” she later recalled in the Washington Post. “I knew that if Yael cried out, the terrorists would toss a grenade into the crawl space and we would be killed,” she wrote in 2003. “So I kept my hand over her mouth, hoping she could breathe. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. ‘This is just like what happened to my mother,’ I thought.” Smadar Haran’s personal torture had only begun. She would later learn that Kuntar had dragged her husband Danny and older daughter to the beach nearby, where he shot Danny execution style, making sure that her father’s death would be the last sight her little girl would ever see. Kuntar then took the butt of his assault rifle and brought in down on Einat’s head, crushing it against a rock. Smadar Haran would later recall, “By the time we were rescued from the crawl space, hours later, Yael, too, was dead. In trying to save all our lives, I had smothered her.” Two weeks ago, in an act of heroism that is beyond imagination, Smadar Haran spoke publicly of coming to terms with the impending release of the monster who turned her life into a waking nightmare. “Samir Kuntar isn’t, nor has he ever been, my private prisoner,” she told a news conference. “His fate must be decided now according to Israel’s needs and ethical interests.” …Kuntar… his elevation to the status of hero and martyr to the Palestinian struggle or the Lebanese resistance.

For Israelis, even after all these years, the release of Kuntar is a form of self-inflicted torture. So heinous, so unpardonable were his crimes, that American Jewish author and journalist Jeffrey Goldberg, himself a veteran of the IDF, wrote on The Atlantic Monthly’s Website… “As unbelievable as this sounds, Israel is actually thinking of swapping Samir Kuntar in a prisoner exchange with Hezbollah. Kuntar is perhaps the most terrible person held in an Israeli prison, a man who crushed the skull of a Jewish child against a rock.” [73]

Terror attack on US embassy

The attack on the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon on April 18, 1983 . The bombing was carried out via a stolen van, carrying 2000 pounds of explosives, slamming into the embassy, killing 63 people. [74] [75] [76][77][78]

Terror attack on peacekeeping US marine

The attack on U.S. Marine Barracks in Oct. 1983. [79] Hezbollah conducted simultaneous suicide truck bombings against the two buildings housing U.S. Marines and French paratroopers in Beirut, killing 241 Marines and 58 French soldiers who were in Lebanon as part of a multinational peacekeeping mission. [80] [81] [82] [83] A US federal judge found (in 2003) Iran liable for the 1983 bombing of a US marine barracks. [84] [85]

The Beirut mission started out as an effort to stabilize a fragile peace in a war-torn country. Lebanon had been in turmoil since the Palestine Liberation Organization, having been expelled from Jordan, took refuge there in the 1970s. In 1975, a panoply of Christian and Muslim militias, turned what had been a Middle East oasis into a no-man’s land of urban warfare. The situation fell apart quickly. Islamic Militia leaders began to view the United States and its allies as favoring the Christian-led forces of the Lebanese government. [86]

Targeting Israeli civilians




Hezbollah has been targeting Israeli civilians, for years. since the 1980s, (Which prompted Israel in 1996 to conduct a defensive operation “Grapes of Wrath.” [87]) its main weapon – firing rockets, missiles into residential areas[88][89] [90] [91] [92] [93] [94] [95]. Though there were also other methods like in Apr 2001 – A 42 year-old Israeli woman was stabbed to death in Haifa. Her murder was the initiation rite of a terrorist cell, whose members were apprehended in July. Six members of a Hezbollah-linked Palestinian terrorist cell responsible for the murder, originally thought to be criminally motivated, were arrested in July. The murder was the initiation rite of one of the terrorists into the organization. [96][97]

Use of its civilian population in war


Use of Lebanese as human shields [98] [99] [100] [101] [102] [103], (copying the Arab-Palestinian tactics routine [24] [25] [26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37]), especially was publicized, in their initiated war with Israel, Hezbollah’s use of “Christian villages as shields in missile attacks.” witnesses: “If Israel does nothing Hezbollah will continue to fire rockets from inside Lebanon shockingly using Christians as human shields actually.” “Hezbollah is hiding among civilian populations and launching attacks behind human shields.” [104] [105], this crime has been categorized as a “Hezbollah specialty” [106], even using the U.N.[107], A.) to cause casualties among their own Arab population, especially among children, in order to generate sympathy and an outcry in the Arab world. B.) Hated Israelis’ image get tarnished, an “important” goal in it of itself to make the Zionists look as “killers.” C.) To cripple Israel’s humane army to respond, thus enables them to come out as “heroes.” [108] & saviours against the Zionist enemy.”

Subjugation, persecution

Hezbollah has a long history of persecuting Christians, decries a Lebanese author.[109]

The writer W. Phares explains on the suffering of civilians, especially since Hezbollah’s take over in 2000:

Such takeover by the Jihadist militia was expected to provoke an exodus by thousands of civilians who would have been subjected to Hezbollah’s persecution. However suddenly on May 23, the Israeli Government then under Prime Minister Ehud Barak ordered a quick pull out from the security zone without waiting for the local force, at the time known as ‘South Lebanon Army’ (SLA) to be transferred under the United Nations or to operate as a local force to stop Hezbollah until the UN would decide what to do. The population of the “security zone” was about 150,000 counting the district of Jezzine; and its local forces were about 3,000 strong. the make up of the population was Christian, Shia and Druse with some Sunni villages to the East. To their north Hezbollah had massed its forces backed by Iranian Pasdaran advisors. Between 1984 and 2000 Hezbollah launched several offensives against the SLA positions but was unable to overrun them permanently. [110]

Civil war

Some of civil war/clashes waged on the Lebanese by the Hezbollah:

In Jan. 2007, clash pits Hezbollah against rule in Lebanon. The police said at least three people died and 100 more were wounded throughout the country in the violence. [111] [112]

“Rival factions return to arms as Lebanon stares into the abyss” in Nov 2007.[113]

In May 8, 2008 Clashes erupted as Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah claims ‘War’ [114], clashes between Hezbollah and Druze continued in Lebanon for the 5th day, it erupted in Lebanon’s northern port city of Tripoli, as fighting between the Hezbollah militia and its rivals grew. [115][116] The Lebanese army said it will intervene, it will use force from to stop fighting, which brough the overall toll to 81 dead and about 250 wounded. [117] [118]

In July 2008, fighting among Lebanese government and the Islamic Hezbollah terrrorists categorized as “Sectarian battles,” the battles killed six, wounded 50. [119][120][121]

In 28 Aug 2008, Hezbollah has “brazenly attacked the Lebanese Army” – in its shooting-attack on an army helicopter, killing 1st Lt. Samer Hanna and wounding several others – so say the leaders of Lebanon’s pro-democracy movement. This is not the first time Hezbollah has attacked the Lebanese government. But it is one of the boldest attacks to date against the army. Hezbollah kills Lebanese Army Officer. [122]

Global violence

Hezbollah is another example (like Al Qaeda) of an Islamist insurgency that is both local and transnational. [123]

Attack on US, French embassies in Kuwait

Hezbollah’s responsible for U.S. and French embassies attacks in Kuwait in 1983 [124]. The American embassy in Kuwait was bombed in a series of attacks whose targets also included the French embassy, the control tower at the airport, the country’s main oil refinery, and a residential area for employees of the American corporation Raytheon. Six people were killed, including a suicide truck bomber, and more than 80 others were injured. In Kuwait, 17 people were arrested and convicted for participating in the attacks. One of those convicted was Mustafa Youssef Badreddin, a cousin and brother-in-law of one of Hezbollah’s senior officers, Imad Mughniyah. After a six-week trial in Kuwait, Badreddin was sentenced to death for his role in the bombings.[125]

Hijacking Kuwaiti planes

A year after the 1983 attacks (on US, French targets), Kuwait Airways flight 221 was hijacked wherein the hijackers demanded the release of Islamic militant: ‘Al-Dawa 17.’ Two US passengers were killed and Iranian police freed the hijackers in Iran where the plane had been diverted. Imad Mugniyah and Hezbollah were accused by US authorities in the hijacking and killings.

In 1988, militants hijacked a second plane, Kuwait Airways Flight 422, with 110 passengers for 16 days. At one point during the hijacking, the plane was diverted to Iran where multiple survivors reportedly believed the original hijackers deplaned and were replaced by a fresh crew of hijackers who were armed with increased gun power.

During the ordeal, the hijackers met with reporters who quoted one as saying upon requesting the refueling of the plane in order to enable the plane to leave Algeria, “We will liquidate our account with Kuwait elsewhere. We don’t want to have the massacre in a friendly country.” A hijacker was quoted as saying, “Kuwait has to know that we do not fear death.” The hijackers demands included the release of Al-Dawa 17.

The plane was diverted to Cyprus where two young Kuwaitis aged 20 and 25 were tortured and then shot. Their dead bodies were dumped on the tarmac of the Cyprus airport.[126][127][128]

Iraq

Already in November 24, 2003, The New York Times elaborated in an article: “A region inflamed, the hand of Tehran,” Hezbollah, in Iraq, that Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed Shiite group, has established a significant presence in Iraq.[129]

In 2006. U.S. Officials said: “Hezbollah Training Iraqi Shiite Militia Group.“ [130][131]

The Wall Street Journal wrote (2007) on Iran’s Proxy War, The involvement of Hezbollah in Iraq. [132]

The BBC reported on additional proof, US officials had in 2007 of the link. [133] In an article on Iran in Iraq, the Washington Post wrote on Iran’s Hezbollah soldiers and methods in the war in Iraq.[134] the CNN reported on a Hezbollah agent played deaf before confessing, the top special operations officer with Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia pretended to be deaf and mute when he was captured in Iraq.[135]

In 2008, there were reports on Hezbollah training Iraqis in Iran[136] Iraqi president Jalal Talabani charged (May, 2008) Hezbollah interference, in a Baghdad interview, he accused the leader of the Lebanon-based Hezbollah of meddling in Iraq’s affairs.[137]

In May, 2010, the US said that Syria must curb arm shipments to Hezbollah, top US diplomat has urged Syria to do more to prevent arms shipments to the militant Lebanese Hezbollah and stem the flow of militants into Iraq.[138]

Somalia

The New York Times reported on Hezbollah in Somalia. [139] From NPR (November 15, 2006), the “U.N. Report ties Somali Islamists to Hezbollah,” in an alarming report about the situation in Somalia. [140] More than 700 Somali fighters are said to have gone to support and get training from Hezbollah.. [141]

Afghanistan

Hezbollah Link in the war in Afghanistan have been found. [142]

Sudan

The Hezbollah, reportedly, is very supportive of Al-Bashir’s genocide in the Sudan. [143]

Egypt

In 2009, the BBC reported that Egypt was ‘hunting Hezbollah suspects’[144], prosecutor accused Hezbollah of plotting attacks in Egypt, of sending operatives to Egypt to carry out attacks in the country and to smuggle weapons.[145] [146] [147] On Apr 2010 An Egyptian court convicted 26 men of belonging to a Hezbollah cell. [148] The Hezbollah Plot exposed Egypt’s shared interests with Israel.[149] Analysts said that the Egypt-Hezbollah standoff dents Egypt-Iran relations.[150]

Azerbaijan

Hezbollah plotted embassy attack’ in Azerbaijan – was revealed in 2009. A trial under way in Azerbaijan of two Hezbollah members and four Azeris, where prosecutors drew a link between Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror missions. [151][152]

Europe

Hijacking TWA flight



Among the highlighted terror crimes of the Hezbollah is the: TWA Hijacking, June 14, 1985: A Trans-World Airlines flight ‘847’ was hijacked en route to Rome from Athens by two Lebanese Hizballah terrorists, and forced to fly to Beirut. The eight crew members and 145 passengers were held for seventeen days, during which one American hostage, a U.S. Navy sailor, was murdered. After being flown twice to Algiers, the aircraft was returned to Beirut after Israel released 435 Lebanese and Palestinian prisoners. [153][154][155][156] [157][158]

The plane was on a scheduled flight from Cairo to Athens. Hijackers –the two terrorists were brandishing grenades and pistols– forced it to Beirut and twice went to Algiers before returning to Beirut releasing most of the (non-American) 152 passengers along the way, and murdering U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem, one of the passengers—beating him, torturing, shooting him in the temple and dumping his body on the tarmac of Beirut International Airport (June 15).

On June 30, Hezbollah released 39 American passengers they held captive for 17 days.

German authorities arrested Mohammed Ali Hammadi and convicted him of Stethem’s murder in 1987. Hammadi was paroled in 2005 and returned to Beirut, where he is believed to be living today (2009). [159][160] [161]

From a letter, Robert’s brother Kenneth has sent to president George W. Bush in 2006 as Robert’s murderer was released by the German government (and fled to Lebanon) in an apparent exchange for a German hostage in Iraq:

While Robert was being dragged to the door, he knew that all he had to do in order to live was to cry into that transmitter, but he wouldn’t do it. He would not give in to the demands of the terrorists. He would not allow the honor and dignity of America to be intimidated by the fear and pain that Hammadi and terrorists everywhere represent. Robert sacrificed his life in order to protect our liberty and defend our way of life.[162]

Dowining of a French airline

The Los Angeles Times wrote in November 1, 1989 that a Palestinian group allied with Hezbollah is linked to a plane crash.

Specialists have linked a terrorist bomb that destroyed a French airliner last month (Oct, 1989) in Africa to a Palestinian group allied with the pro-Iranian Hezbollah, the newspaper Figaro said… Working with fragments of a suitcase found in the wreckage of the airliner, specialists in Paris’ central police laboratory found similarities to a terrorist bomb that exploded at a Paris department store almost five years ago. The February 1985 attack at the department store resulted in the arrest of Habib Maammar, a Tunisian member of a group directed by the Palestinian bomb maker Abu Ibrahim. [163]

Terror attack on French department stores

Paris’ Boulevard Haussmann was targeted in 1985 and 1986 during attacks on Paris department stores, many of them claimed by the Lebanese Hezbollah militants, which left 13 dead and 303 injured. Terrorists from Hezbollah, set off bombs in both Printemps and Galeries Lafayette in December 1985, injuring 43 people.[164] [165]

Workers at Printemps in December 1985 when Hezbollah bombs exploded on the ground floor there and in the Galeries Lafayette department store, recalled the attack which led to a bomb scare in Dec. 2008, when explosives were found there. [166] [167]

Network

Although Europe has recently been exempt from Hezbollah attacks, numerous intelligence experts and officials assert that the group’s operatives maintain cells across the continent. German authorities, in particular, have expressed concern about the presence of several hundred Hezbollah members in their country.

Reports of an increase in Hezbollah recruiting have emerged in eastern European countries, specifically Slovakia, Bosnia and Russia . And over the past few years, Hezbollah has sent operatives with European identification papers to Israel in order to collect intelligence for future attacks. Efforts by European authorities to curtail Hezbollah’s influence have included France ‘s 2004 ban of Hezbollah’s television station and chief propaganda machine, Al- Manar, from that nation’s satellite television providers. Spain and the United States have made similar moves. [4]

Attempts of attacks between 1988-1996

Other attacks researchers have attributed to Hezbollah include an unsuccessful attempt to carry out attacks in Cyprus in 1988; a plot, foiled by Spanish police, to carry out attacks against Jewish targets in Europe in 1989; an unsuccessful attempt to detonate a car bomb outside a Jewish community building in Romania in 1992; and a planned 1996 attack, also foiled by police, on an Israeli institution in Paris. [168]

Attempts of ‘massive-attacks’ in 2009

In 2009, there was a report of a “Massive Hezbollah Terror Attack Against Israeli Target In Europe,” that has been thwarted. [169]

Latin America

From a US statement in 1995 titled “Latin American Terrorism backed by Iran”

“We believe that Hizballah activities, which include narcotics and smuggling as well as terrorism, are supported in the tri-border area of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay. The organization is known to have cells in Colombia and Venezuela as well. Hizballah cells are concealed amidst the large Shia’ Muslim population of Lebanese origin which has settled in the tri-border area.” [170]

Venezuela

US designated two Hezbollah operatives in Venezuela as terrorists- Hezbollah has used the tri-border region between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay to recruit, train, raise and launder money, and plot attacks. [171]

Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez (Called a dictator [172] [173][174] & his regime a dictatorship [175], and has close ties with the Mullahcracy theocracy dictatorship of the Islamic Republic of Iran [176] [177]) has publicly supported a Hezbollah candidate for the Lebanese government, he was a supporter of Hezbollah during the 2006 war in Lebanon; afterward, the group placed signs in Lebanon proclaiming “Gracias, Chavez!” He openly invited Hezbollah members to live in Venezuela. Venezuela’s embassies in the Middle East have been used to launder Hezbollah’s dirty money, per investigation by the U.S. Treasury Dept In January 2010, Israeli intelligence released information that Chavez shipped heavy arms to Hezbollah the year before; the ship originated in Venezuela, stopped in Iran and docked in Lebanon. [178]

Chavez has a close relationship with Iran’s President Ahmedinejad. The two leaders regularly visit each other. In 2007, they instituted weekly flights between Tehran and Caracas. Interestingly, the aircraft stops one place – Damascus, Syria. Journalists and others have tried to book a seat on the aircraft and have been denied. The passenger and cargo manifests are kept secret.

In an article (2009) in Forbes Magazine it was discussed how an attack by Israel against Gaza could be fought asymmetrically by Hezbollah – with help from Venezuela and Chavez. [179]

(Worth mentioning [asides from Chavez’s “personal” war with “imperialist” US] that Venezuela, has a large Lebanese-Arab community [180], many of them supported, financed Chavez’s presidency. There’s also a significant concentration of this community in the area bordering with Colombia (Macau). Jews have been attacked[181] in that country. From a (2000) report on “Antisemitism And Racism,” responses to the intifada in the media, in wall graffiti and by Arab organizations in Venezuela such as FEARAB (Arab Federation for Latin America) were directed at de-legitimizing the State of Israel, which was accused of causing the Palestinian tragedy. The radical language used against Israel was not infrequently antisemitic, for example, the comparison of Israeli soldiers with Nazis [182], described (in 2009) as “the New Hero in the Arab World.” [183], moreover, Hezbollah’s Nasrallah said: Arabs have much to learn from Chavez.[184], he was even exhorting his countrymen to return to their “Arab roots,” Chavez has paid state visits to rouge-Arab-Islamic states like: Libya, Iraq and Iran and signed a series of mutual-cooperation.[185], it has been said that “The Arabs have appreciated Chavez’s declarations of support, and the Arab League has promised to lobby in behalf of Venezuela in the United Nations.”[186], a defector even accused: ‘Chavez gave money to Al Qaeda.’[187] In an alarming report, the ADL wrote (2008) “Chavez’s Venezuela: The Jewish Community Under Threat” on praise for Chavez and his anti-Israel actions echoed across the Arab and Muslim, Chavez Fosters Atmosphere of Intimidation and Fear for Venezuelan Jewish community.[188], and that the Chavez Regime is ‘Fostering Anti-Semitism, hate and Supporting Radical Islamists, which led to a rise in Anti-Semitism in Venezuela.[189], Intelligence sources say Chavez is withholding information on Arabs, some of whom were important financial contributors to terrorism.[190], and has illegally given more than 270 Venezuelan passports to Arab extremists. [191])

Attack on Israeli embassy in Argentina

Hezbollah & Iran attacked the Israel’s embassy in Argentina in 1992, in which 29 people were killed. [192] [193] [194] [195]

Attack on a Jewish center (Amia) in Argentina

Hezbollah & Iran attacked the Israel’s embassy in Argentina in 1992, in which 29 people were killed. [191] [192] [193] [194]

Hezbollah and Iran both are also charged, via clear evidence, by Argentinian court, terror bombing on the (civilian building) Amia ‘Jewish-Argentine Mutual Association Community Cente’ which killed 85 and wounded 300. [196][197][198][199], furthermore, Argentina accuses Iran of meddling in probe of the 1994 Jewish center bombing[200], the investigation finds Iranian, Hezbollah and Syrian involvement. [201]

Haaretz wrote in detail on “How Iran planned the Buenos Aires blast – 1994” [202]

Bombing in Panama

July 19, 1994 Panama, A suicide bomber reportedly linked to Hezbollah detonated a bomb on a commuter plane in Colón, Panama, killing all 21 people aboard, including 12 Jewish businessmen, at least four of whom were Israeli, and three U.S. citizens. [203][204][205]

Earlier, on July 18, a bomb killed 95 people at a Jewish center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The next day, an explosion on a commuter plane in Panama killed all 21 people aboard, inclding 12 Jews. An anti-Israel group in Lebanon had indirectly claimed responsibility for both attacks. [206]

Experts on terrorism make the link, after the Lebanese newspaper An- Nahar published a communique from an organization calling itself Ansar Allah taking responsibility for the AMIA bombing as well as the bombing over Panama of an Alas Chiricanas passenger airliner.

As it turns out, the name Ansar Allah turned out to be one of the many fictitious names that Hezbollah has used to claim responsibility for its attacks. Moreover, experience has shown that Hezbollah has habitually adopted this method for the clear purpose of avoiding blame for the various actions it has carried out, except for those realized in Lebanon where the conflict has taken the form of a conventional war. [207]

From the LA Times, Aug. 4, 1994 “Hezbollah: The Latin connection.”

Bombings in Argentina and Panama prompt concern over the radical group’s growing presence in the region. Experts say lax security and porous borders create a prime base for terrorists.[208]

Bloody Sunday: Hezbollah Causes Deaths of 60 women and Children Using Residence as Human Shield

“Why are they killing us? What have we done?” >asked Khalil Shalhoub as he witnessed his brother’s remains being removed from the building in Qana, Lebanon after Israeli aircraft bombed the building suspected to be shielding rocket launchers directed at Israel. 120 such rockets were fired at Israel today.

Fox News reports that at least 56 were killed in the attack, mostly women and children.

It’s a sad and tragic event which should never have happened. And it’s one that is likely to fit into the plans of those who wish to condemn Israel and push for a ceasefire that preserves Hezbollah’s military capacity. The same military capability which violates every previous agreement intended to bring peace to the troubled region.

Ever since the crisis began, Mike’s America has pointed out how Hezbollah has used the civilian population and U.N. peacekeepers as human shields. They deliberately choose to attack from these positions and then are first to raise the cry of “massacre” or “war crime” when unintended deaths occur. We’ve reported the statement from U.N. Humanitarian Chief Egeland who denounced Hezbollah for “this cowardly blending … among women and children…I heard they were proud because they lost very few fighters and that it was the civilians bearing the brunt of this. I don’t think anyone should be proud of having many more children and women dead than armed men.”

Video Evidence Of Hezbollah Rockets Shielded by Civilian Residences

If you haven’t seen the video from the Israeli Defense Forces showing the launching of rockets directly behind a large building in the area near Qana, it is here. It’s an older video and apparently not the building which was struck today, but a nearby site which does illustrate how Hezbollah launches rockets from behind a large building to avoid detection.

The chart at right illustrates the course of rockets fired from Qana. The Israeli Defense Forces also has a further video showing how Hezbollah hides rockets in civilian targets.

More Questions: No Fighters Killed in Qana?
Reporters at the site of this tragedy report that it took many hours for them to reach the scene. They were not given any opportunity to investigate, photograph or videotape obvious military targets or dead Hezbollah fighters.

Prior to the strike in Qana, Israel took steps to warn the civilian population that strikes in this area were likely and warned them to leave. This is the same precaution they followed prior to their incursions into both Southern Lebanon and Gaza. These efforts include dropping of leaflets, phone calls to residences in affected areas and loudspeakers in some cases. Vital Perspective posted a copy of one of the leaflets warning that Israeli strikes were imminent.

From reports at the scene, survivors of the Qana attack complained that they were unable to leave, that the roads were “blocked.” Yet reporters had no trouble getting to and from the scene.

More Questions

Unfortunately, the resources of the Israeli Defense Forces are more focused on fighting and winning on the ground in Lebanon and Gaza. But the propaganda war is being lost as the world sees images of dead children and only later considers the cause.

As we wait for more information, one thing is clear: this tragedy would not have occurred if Hezbollah has been disarmed. Furthermore, this tragedy would not have happened if Iran and Syria had not provided Hezbollah with the weapons, training and funding to attack Israel. Finally, none of this would be happening if the world demanded the same level of accountability and respect for innocent civilians from Hezbollah that they require of Israel.

Answering Khalil Shalhoub’s question: “Why are they killing us? What have we done?” I would say: You have allowed Hezbollah to rearm and attack Israel. If you valued peace more than war, you would not have done so.

And Khalil: Mike’s America readers may recall another “Bloody Sunday” 23 years ago when Hezbollah killed 241 U.S. Marines sent to Lebanon as peacekeepers. Isn’t it past time you held Hezbollah accountable for the “cycle of violence?” Blaming everyone else for your problem hasn’t worked too well has it?

Update: The research department at Flopping Aces has found a number of other links to the videos mentioned above and more. A number of these are provided by Vital Perspective, a collection of which can be found at You Tube.

Vital Perspective also reminds us that the deliberate placement of weaponry in a civilian area is a violation of the Geneva Conventions. Will we now hear all the bleeding heart lefties who moan about our benevolent treatment of homocidal terrorists at Guantanamo now take up the call about war crimes by Hezbollah? Don’t hold your breath!

And just for the record, Flopping Aces linked to this video at the end of which you can clearly see ambulances with UN markings being used to transport Hamas terrorists in Gaza away from the fighting.

And some people say that Israel is committing “war crimes”?

___

Islamists to Zionists: ‘We’ll make SURE our kids die, so we can murder yours!’

Israel’s war of not hitting Arab civilians VS Islamists FOR it.

Since the bluff of Islamists supposedly having “issue” just keeps being exploded in their faces with each “one way” concession by the Zionists to the “never sattisfied” Arabs, more so when the Zionists gave Gaza land to the “Palestinians” and the “Palestinians” immediately responded only to continue their crimes with even less shame, overwhelmingly gave the region and to the world the gift of: electing officially the terrorists of Hamas to be their leaders.

They never can justify their killing of civilians, intentionally, how do they combat with this most honest most human and moral basic question ever?

So they came up with a plan, how to make sure their kids die, Hamas actually masterminded it, to use own kids as human shields, either firing with machine guns behind the “little stones throwers”, or firing from among their families.

But great humane Israel (Israel VS Evil), can’t stomach even collateral damage, so they try always to warn the residents of an operation coming so that they should evacuate.

That is of course extremely costly, since such warnings, whether in Gaza or in Lebanon are chasing the terrorists away as well, but beautiful Israel is willing to sacrifice so much to spare Arab children that their adults hate so much but love for them to be killed on the altar of “public relation” and that “victim-hood” so sacred for the dirty Islamists.

If you want to see the deeper picture, (not only the true vs. exaggerated fake photos, just exposed on Reuters, etc. but) the real picture of Israel VS. Islamists.

Israel fights so mighty hard to AVOID civilian casualties on EITHER side, Islamists fight for the GREATER MASSACRES of CIVILIANS even on Arab Muslim side, since it serves their purpose of: “you see? Zionists are killing civilians too, they are not much better”, so they can go ahead with what they always want, to massacre all non Muslims, especially the Israelis.

Death and destruction are Hezbollah’s goals
By Andrea Levin | August 8, 2006
SOMETIMES basic facts get blurred in a fierce, image-filled conflict such as the one spawned by Hezbollah’s July 12 cross-border attack in which Israeli soldiers were killed and others kidnapped while a rain of rockets descended on homes and fields. An unprovoked act of war, this Hezbollah assault followed 19 others since May 2000, when Israel pulled out from a security zone in southern Lebanon that had been created to protect against earlier terrorist incursions. In response to those first 19 incidents, Israel had essentially held its fire.
What does Hezbollah, with some 10,000 katyushas and other long-range missiles, really want? Some say Israel’s pullout from south Lebanon was incomplete (though fully certified as complete by the United Nations) and that handing over Shebaa Farms would quiet the Iranian-funded Jihadist group. But as a New Yorker story noted, even Hezbollah spokesman Hassan Ezzeddin admitted: “If they go from Shebaa, we will not stop fighting them. Our goal is to liberate the 1948 borders of Palestine.” What he means, of course, is the destruction of Israel.
Genocide seems to be the goal. This too may be lost when media focus centers on Israel’s retaliation for aggression and its army’s advance against Hezbollah fighters dug deep into the Lebanese hills. But listen to the words of the group’s leaders and consider the relentless message of Al-Manar, the organization’s richly funded satellite television network that reaches tens of millions around the world and is designated a terrorist entity by the US State Department.
Hezbollah head Hassan Nasrallah describes being asked whether “the destruction of Israel and the liberation of Palestine and Jerusalem were Hezbollah’s goal,” and replying: “That is the principal objective of Hezbollah.” He terms Israel “an illegal state; it is a cancerous entity and the root of all the crises and wars. . .”
On Al-Manar television, Jews are termed pigs and monkeys and the Holocaust is denied. Participants in a network-sponsored symposium urge that Israel “be completely wiped out” and “just like Hitler fought the Jews” the “great Islamic nation of Jihad” should “fight the Jews and burn them.”
In May, Nasrallah appeared on the network to explain that “our nation’s willingness to sacrifice their blood, souls, children, fathers, and families” is an advantage over the Jews “who guard their lives.” (All translations by the Middle East Media Research Institute.)
This blunt admission too should be remembered in the rush of reports; for there is, indeed, a crucial difference in valuing human life, whether Israeli or Arab. The innocent Lebanese behind whom Hezbollah gunmen wantonly shelter, knowingly inviting Israel’s defensive return volley, have surely been sacrificed. And not by their own choice. One news report told of Hezbollah murdering a Lebanese man who sought to flee the fighting and escape being used as a human shield. Lebanese citizens, especially Christians, speak of rage at Iran and Syria for the ruin of their country caused by Hezbollah’s proxy militia and of helplessness at the hands of the armed thugs.
Many in the Lebanese Christian diaspora, beyond the reach of Hezbollah intimidation, speak out even more forcefully against turning Lebanon into a Shia theocracy emulating Iran.
Israel has, in fact, tried to `”guard” the lives of Lebanese civilians, dropping warning leaflets and announcing ahead its intention to target missile launchers, explosives, and gunmen. In contrast, Hezbollah fills its katyushas with lethal ball bearings to spread death and suffering as far and wide as possible
.
A Boston native, David Lalchuck, was killed just days ago by this weapon as he rushed to safety from tending a kibbutz orchard. He was only the latest American to die at the hands of Hezbollah. Two-hundred-and-forty-one were killed in 1983 by a Hezbollah truck bomb at the US Marine barracks in Beirut. The Marines were part of a peace-keeping force. Until 9/11, Hezbollah had kidnapped, hijacked, tortured, and murdered more Americans than any other terrorist group.
The Great Satan and the Little Satan — America and Israel — are the obsession of Hezbollah, Iran, Al Qaeda, and other Islamic fascists. Closing our eyes to their brutality only assures more innocent lives will be lost before the threat is overcome.

Blame the Terrorists, Not Israel!
THE HEZBOLLAH and Hamas provocations against Israel once again demonstrate how terrorists can exploit human rights and the media in their attacks on democracies. By hiding behind their own civilians, the Islamic radicals issue a challenge to democracies: Either violate your own morality by coming after us and inevitably killing some innocent civilians, or maintain your morality and leave us with a free hand to target your innocent civilians. This challenge presents democracies such as Israel with a lose-lose option and terrorists with a win-win option.

Hezbollah, the Iranian-backed group in Lebanon that warred with Israel this summer, has been training militant Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr’s militia both inside Iraq and in Lebanon, senior White House and intelligence officials confirmed Tuesday. The confirmation came after the New York Times reported that a senior intelligence official said that some 1,000 to 2,000 Shiite fighters had been trained in Lebanon by Hezbollah, which also is backed by Syria. Click here to view the New York Times article. President Bush, who is in Europe to attend a NATO summit, expressed concern Tuesday that Iran and Syria are both attempting to destabilize Iraq. “The Iranians and the Syrians should help — not destabilize — this young democracy,” Bush said. Bush continued to express his administration’s reluctance to talk with Iran and Syria on the grounds that the two nations have been unhelpful in efforts to achieve Middle East peace.

…The Return of a Superterrorist (Most Dangerous Besides Osama = MUGNIYAH)

Feb. 5, 2007 issue – Before Osama bin Laden, there was Imad Mughniyeh. The Lebanese terrorist from Hizbullah was considered the most dangerous in the world. Now the White House worries that he’s back, after years of lying low. Four serving U.S. intel and counterterrorism officials, anonymous when discussing sensitive material, said Mughniyeh is prominent in recent reporting from the field about Hizbullah activity. Bruce Riedel, a veteran Mideast expert recently retired from the CIA, told NEWSWEEK there is “no question he is heavily involved in [formulating] terrorist contingency plans in case of a U.S.-Iran confrontation.”
Mughniyeh has the résumé to be a potent threat. He was the alleged organizer of a series of devastating bombings and kidnappings against U.S. targets in Lebanon during the 1980s, including two bombings of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut. But Hizbullah later made a strategic decision to abandon attacks on American targets. Even now, U.S. intel officials stress that they don’t believe Hizbullah will actually hit U.S. interests unless Washington strikes first—against either the movement or its key patron, Tehran.
So what is Mughniyeh up to? Two of the U.S. officials interviewed by NEWSWEEK said field reports indicate that he travels between Beirut, Damascus and Tehran. One official said that some reports also suggest he has visited Baghdad. (Hizbullah has allegedly been involved in training the Mahdi Army militia of Moqtada al-Sadr.) (EXCERPT…) read more at:
