For two weeks now Israel has been doing what the majority of the nations of the world were afraid to do — confront the Hizb'Allah terrorist organization. For six years Hizb'Allah has been building up its military power in southern Lebanon, aided by Syria and Iran. Even though the situation was well known throughout the world, there was no interference from any nation. Even when Israel complained to the United Nations Security Council, no one seemed to care.
So now, here we are, in a reverse play of six years ago. Only this time Israel's goal is to eliminate Hizb'Allah for good. Now, many other nations are cheering them on, some of the media outlets are finally getting the story correct (at least to a degree), and many people around the world are siding with Israel (that's a bit scary in and of itself).
But on Tuesday, July 26, 2006, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice proposed a plan in which international military forces would help the Lebanese government stabilize southern Lebanon. Rice pitched the plan Tuesday to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in Jerusalem. It was made to look like it was a dazzling feat of political strategy except it's not a new idea. Hello ... is anybody home? That's what was supposed to happen six years ago but Lebanon chose to let Hizb'Allah take care of that area, and the UN chose to turn a blind eye to the entire situation. Hence, the situation today.
And then, for some strange reason, Rice thought it was important to travel to Ram'Allah for talks with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. There's a war going on in the south of Israel also, in case anyone forgot. It's being fought between Israel and the "other terrorists" — Hamas and Fatah, a.k.a. the Palestinian Authority — Israel's 'peace' partner. And Rice, along with her boss U.S. President George W. Bush, still wants to divide the land of Israel and give a portion of it to the same people who destroyed Gaza and now launch missiles into Israel on a daily basis.
Is any of this making sense to anybody? Here is the situation as I see it: There is an organization in the north — who have openly declared they are working for the elimination of the Jewish State — firing rockets into Israel on a daily basis, many of which are killing people, and the world has labeled them as terrorists. O.K., that makes sense so far. On the other end, there is an organization in the south — who have openly declared they are working for the elimination of the Jewish State — firing rockets into Israel on a daily basis, many of which are killing people, and the world has labeled them as suitable 'peace' partners for Israel, and is demanding that Israel give them a portion of their sovereign land in which to build a terrorist state.
Am I missing something?
