The parable of those who take [beings or forces] other than God for their protectors is that of the spider which makes for itself a house: for behold, the frailest of all houses is the spider's house. If only they understood this! (Quran 29:41)
"Concrete barriers stand at the entrance to the village of Ghajar on Israeli-Lebanese border, November 2010. Photograph: Getty Images" Of course it is not the Israeli-Lebanese border but the Syrian-Lebanese border BOTH sides of which are occupied by Israel. And the article is written by the ignorant Ha'aretz reporter who with his partner wrote the book "34 Days: Israel, Hizbollah, and the War in Lebanon" which is a joke (for example did you know that "Bashar Gemayel" was assassinated in 2005?). They're completely wrong when they claim Iran has MORE influence over Hizbullah after 2006, Nasrallah does not take orders from Ahmadinejad and whoever thinks this doesn't know what they're talking about. Remember Ahmadinejad's visit to Lebanon? Nasrallah was clearly the dominant one throughout, for example Ahmadinejad was allowed to give a 30 minute (boring) speech to a rally in the South which everyone put up with and then when he was finally gone Nasrallah gave an hour long speech via videolink i.e. this was the main event not Ahmadinejad speaking from the stage. Hizbullah are not going to attack Israel just because Iran told them to or for some retaliation for an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities (which I can't see happening anyway).
Politicians are becoming like robots who just recite memorised sound bites without knowing what they're talking about. This is the culmination. I challenge anyone to play this on a loop and find where this interview starts and when it ends.
Apparently they now think it's a good idea to depict Israel as a paranoid lunatic. And what the hell is with the whole "sexy girl" and revealing dress? What does that represent? Or her being seen by a psychiatrist? It doesn't make any sense.
The sole piece of evidence cited in this article for all its claims about Hezbollah having "vast influence in Latin America" is that "some gang members, who entered the U.S. through the southern border with Mexico, have been arrested in the U.S. proudly displaying Farsi tattoos." Even if tattoos weren't forbidden in Islam and Hezbollah weren't strict in enforcing this on its members that's pretty ridiculous evidence.
Look at the justification for killing: "The Israeli military said the victims had beenpreparing to fire a rocket at Israel and were believed to be members of an Islamic extremist group." Later Ha'aretz reported an Israeli soldier being 'lightly wounded' as being "the first significant incident in the strip after a few months of relative calm in the area." According to this racist paper two Palestinians being bombed to death by Israeli war planes is not a significant incident but an Israeli occupation soldier being lightly wounded is. And can Ha'aretz make their mind up whether the tank was "NEAR Gaza" or "IN the southern Gaza Strip". Although either way I'm sure it was on a mission of peace.
Earlier in the day, police arrested six Israelis who arrived at the airport with signs reading "Free Gaza". What do you call a country where newspapers report the arresting of people for carrying placards without blinking?
Riyadh will build nuclear weapons if Iran gets them, Saudi prince warns Notice how totally freaked out the Saudis are about the prospect of Iran possibly planning to make nuclear weapons sometime in the future yet they don't seem to mind at all Israel's hundreds of nuclear weapons.
