Hezbollah accuses Israel over airspace violations
“The Israeli enemy’s increase in violations of Lebanese airspace, water and land, especially in the past few days, is considered an unacceptable provocative escalation,” said a statement from the Islamic Resistance, Hezbollah’s military wing.
“It requires condemnation and serious action by the Lebanese authorities and the United Nations,” the Shiite militant group said, complaining of hundreds of breaches within a week.
“There has been a sharp increase in Israeli breaches of Lebanese airspace, water and land this month,” a Lebanese army official told AFP.
I would see normal that Lebanese Government complaint if these “alleged violations” had taken place. But Hizbullah????
Well, don’t get surprised:
Since Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora bowed to Hizbullah’s demands in Doha last month and agreed to grant the Iranian-controlled, Syrian-supported terror group control over his government, Lebanon has become an official agent of a terror group. That is, Lebanon, as a state, has become a sponsor of terror. But no one seems to notice or to care.
(…) All of Lebanon’s supposedly moderate leaders were at the Hizbullah-controlled Beirut airport to accord Kuntar a hero’s welcome. President Michel Suleiman embraced Kuntar – who crushed four-year-old Einat Haran’s skull – and his fellow terrorists as “our freed heroes.” Sa’ad Hariri, the head of the March 14th movement, referred to Kuntar’s release as “an historic day of joy.” Saniora hailed the corpses-for-murderers swap explaining, “The success of Hizbullah in the negotiations led by a third party is a national success for the party and for the struggle of the Lebanese because it secured national goals which Israel always refused to respect.” And Druse leader Walid Jumblatt hailed Kuntar’s release as “a national holiday.”
(…) ALL OF this is depressingly familiar. In many ways, the Saniora government is to Hizbullah in Lebanon what the Fatah terror group is to Hamas in the Palestinian Authority. As is the case in Lebanon, the US trains, finances and arms Fatah. It supports Fatah politically against Israel, claiming that Fatah has earned its support through its moderation relative to Hamas. But as events have shown repeatedly, Fatah is a terrorist organization and is only too happy to collude with Hamas in attacking Israel and to form governments with Hamas so long as Hamas doesn’t embarrass it too much.
Well, this is true and terrible…
