Showering Leaflets, Summer Rain?

Dahiyeh is showered with hundreds of thousands of leaflets warning people to leave. Other locations in Lebanon's South the same.

How considerate can you be. A warning that before the massacre.

Fuck man!

Indeed.

So, if the point is to target HezbAllah, what prevents Hezb operatives from evacuating along with the residents?

What on earth is the point? Wanton destruction. Malice.

Osaid Rasheed said...

This is called : 'protection of civilians' !!

they would say : IDF is protecting the life of civilians coz its the 'most ethical' army in the world !

How ethical !

good day !

Lebanon is a "democratic" country that have an army... how can they give legitimization to a melicia (i was looking for this word in english and im not sure that this is the right way to write, it means a small independent army) working inside lebanon... is that looks right to u? its like a melicia in cuba will bomb north america, its the same thing!

its just like Hamas in Gaza, the choosen "democratic" gov that gives legitimate to the terror attack on our tank and kidnapping 1 soldier.
how can an authority gov give green lite to those groups?

u all forgetting 1 more thing... we didnt just start bombing lebanon cause we find it funny, hisballa killed 8 soldiers of us, and kidnaped 2. what the fuck he tought we gonna do? bent over and ask for some more?
what he was thinking? that we will say O please please have some mercy... we r so weak and afrade...???

u know... i saw the arabs in lebanon going in the street, happy for the hizbulla attack, saying that he should wap israel from the map... and the best thing that happened for me today was taht i didnt c them smiling today... it just made me happy.

Hey Bashir, check out lebanesebloggers.blogspot.com. Get them to link to you. Your blog ought to be listed there.

I love Munich said...

Caller ... thank you so much for standing up against somebody like him who lost any sense of humanity! I highly appreciate that .. rest assured, we won't descent to that niveau!

And now to you ... tasuooooo:
Your insults don't touch me - I am standing far above them! Did I forget WWII? NO, eventhough I was not alive back then .. but I am well aware what happened then - but do YOU not realize what YOU GUYS do to the Palestinian population? See any parallels? No? Check again - you can't be blind! You just trapped yourself with the remark what "you are supposed to do" - congrats!
Do you expect THEM, the Palestinians, to sit still with folded hands and ask more of your bombs, bullets, tanks, F-16s, tanks and Appachies??? Would YOU not defend yourself? Of course you would - like EVERYBODY sane would!!
Ahhh .. you ask what MY country would do, would a neighbouring one kill 8 of her soldiers ... I can tell you right away what they would NEVER do: attack the other! It would give a diplomatic flurry and trouble on diplomatic basis but NEVER an attack - I can absolutely assure you! YOU guys though don't know any diplomacy ... you right away need to slam, show your "might"! You know, you are certainly stronger militarily ... but ULTIMATELY in case you have an idea about psychology), this is a sign of utter WEAKNESS and only someone who CAN NOT do anything else - resorts to that!
Call me what you want - I have two ears ... it goes in one and right out the other! It doesn't even scratch me!

Musclemouth said...

tasuo, pick a better name. i'm not going to type all those o's every time i have to tear you an new asshole. which i am about to do. listen, you little shitfucker, i don't know if you have any friends who agree with your filthy attitude, but do yourself a favor and tell them to fuck off. you're listening to the wrong people if you think it's ok to denigrate someone who is currently suffering a prolonged bomb attack. what if your house was toast, all of a sudden? what if someone bombed your family to smithereens? imagine your mother. no, really: imagine her face, her eyes, her hands. imagine her love for you. imagine she is standing right in front of you. no imagine her face suddenly shred to smithereens. imagine the blood of your mother's face on the floor and in her hair. imagine you can see her brains, falling out of her skull. imagine her arm blown off, in the next room. what's your mother's name? is she nice? is she pretty? how long was she in labor when she gave birth to you? do you love her? well imagine she's dead. now imagine i'm walking up to you and calling you a pig. imagine i am telling you that you deserve this, because of what your government does.

you fucking shithead.

Musclemouth said...

one more thing: just to be clear, governments are not people. governments - most governments - are killers. the people who live under those governments cannot be held accountable for what the governments do. we people, we humans, are just bargaining chips. we're all in this together. it's people who don't realize this - people like tasuo - that need to be smacked awake. nobody wants death and destruction - except those in power.

Bashir, I think you should consider moderating comments to prevent uncivilized people from using the comment section as a place to hurl swears and curses.

Wow, I LOVE MUNICH, beautiful response. *hug*

It's this sort of idea that makes the middle east a backward place.

In the middle east people still think as though they were in a pre-modern world where the public are always victims who have no power and are responsible for nothing. And the leaders are never held responsible because they'll have you killed if you ever even think that they're anything but perfect.

The difference between the modern world and the pre-modern world is that in the modern world of democracy, people are responsible. And responsible people do more than cry and blame, they think. They figure out the rational causes and they make rational, responsible choices.

The pre-modern world is dead. You're not victims, you're citizens. Take responsibility, stand up as responsible adults. Think! In your old system you were always cannon-fodder, manipulated, crying, raging victims. No more, take responsibity for everything in your country and control your destiny.

Let me tell you how this looks to the rest of the world:

99 percent of the countries on this planet do not allow any group to have an army other than the government itself.

This is true of the United States, for instance. In the United States it's illegal for anyone to run or even support a foreign war without the consent of congress, and that even includes the President. Oliver North went to jail for that, and Ronald Reagan would have gotten in trouble if he hadn't been obviously senile.

It's time for Lebanon to join the rest of the world and take control of their own country. Every other country in the world is responsible for all armed activity on their soil, how can Lebanon be the only country that isn't?

You should realize that Israel has no choice.

Arab states and Iran think that they can wage a slow war with Israel forever and pay no price. If this is allowed, eventually Israel will die.

Whether or not the soldiers are released the blockaid will succeed in somewhat discouraging future attacks on Israel by everyone... Israel has to make sure that attacking Israel is never free, otherwise all of the Arabs and the Persians will continue to support terrorism without limit. It's like those Lebanese who took to the streets to celebrate the missiles. Killing Jews is one of the middle east's favorite sports.

That sport will eventually destroy Israel if Israelis don't fight.

But there's no reason for Lebanon to ever see violence again.

It should be obvious that if Lebanon had never attacked Israel not now and not before the first invasion, Lebanon would never have had a moment's trouble from Israelis. Israelis don't want war with you, but they do want to be allowed to live. Who's fault is it that they're always being attacked? Not theirs.

If Lebanese people learn to take responsibility for what happens on their soil like most other countries do, they'll have peace with Israelis forever.

Remember, you're not victims, you're citizens. It's your country and it shouldn't be out of control.

Josh Scholar,

There are indeed people in Lebanon who are trying to do exactly that. (Remember the anti-Syrian protests? They were about making the Lebanese government obey the Lebanese people instead of the Syrian government.) In the meantime, Lebanon is being bombed and innocent civilians are being killed as a consequence of actions taken by forces that are not accountable to the Lebanese people. Under these circumstances, your little lecture on why the Lebanese people should take responsibility comes across as more than a little patronising.

lookaround said...

whoa. The Modern world is so fascinating.

I am an IDF soldier on vacation.

Let's see...

but do YOU not realize what YOU GUYS do to the Palestinian population? See any parallels? No? Check again - you can't be blind! You just trapped yourself with the remark what "you are supposed to do" - congrats!


There is NO SINGLE SIMILARITY between Palestinians and what happend in WWII. Don't bother reading further if you think otherwise.

I always wondered if people really hate each other. Even here, it is hard to tell. It's like reading a play - everyone takes his predictable role in the scene.

I don't hate anyone, please don't swear on me or wish me bad things. I wish the madness will end soon, just like anyone else.

Keep in mind those facts:
1. From the day I remember myself, Israel suffers from terror attacks.
2. Last year, after trying to solve things in many different ways (including Oslo talks), Israel got out of gaza strip (land that was conquared from egypt in a war that the arabs decided to make). This move was the first of moves intended to eventually enable independce to Palestine.
3. after this, Israel suffers from missile attacks that do not stop.
4. last week, a soldier is kidnapped near Gaza, and two more are killed - INSIDE israeli territory.
5. This week, two soldiers are kidnapped in the north, and 8 are dead, after a hizbollah attack INSIDE israeli territory.

Israel is responding to arab violence that is sorrounding her. We have no option but to make a clear statement.

IT IS NOT WORTH IT TO KIDNAP ISRAELIS!

If lebanese were smart enough, they would cry for the kidnap (like i did) and not go out celebrating in the streets.

Lebanon should fight Hizbollah and stop relationship with Syria (that is supporting terror, including elqeada)

I am sorry for civilian casualties in Lebanon. This was not supposed to happen - but the responsiblity is only Hizbollah.

Pierre / Candide's Notebooks said...

Lookaround, you're an "IDF" soldier on vacation while Israel is fighting a three-front war? Be that as it may, and taking you at your word, I don;t think most Lebanese would disagree with what you say: the missile attacks, Hezballah's rogue nature, the stupidity of kidnapping Israeli soldiers, Hezballah's responsibility and so on; nor does the cretinry of some people "dancing in the streets" indict all Lebanese: they're not all of one mind by any means, thank God, and in this case the collective hatred for Hezballah is on par with the collective hatred for what Israel is doing: between Hezbollah and Israel, we have two complimenting savages whacking at each other at the expense of Lebanon's civilians. That's the overriding crime in which Israel and Hezballah are complict, and the overriding crime that simply saing "it's Hezballah's responsibility" neither diminishes nor excuses. We know Hezballah is the Party of Goons. We know the Lebanese government is a farce on weekends and an obscenity every day of the week. We also know that with more than 60 civilians killed and counting, Israel's reaction, whether two or ten soldiers were kidnapped, is murderous. There's no excusing it under any rationale, except of course the prevailing metrics of Bush-type shock-and-awe to make a goddamn point. To defend those metrics is to condone the barbarism. As a professional soldier, I trust you're above that sort of idiocy.

Josh, have you heard about the michigan millitia in the united states? There are many armed groups in the US. How about the settlers in Gaza and the West bank? They see the need to arm themselves and create "outposts" even though they are protected by the Israeli millitary.

Hizbullah has gained influence from fighting barbaric Israeli practices. I do not support their recent actions, but how can the lebanese people tell them to disarm when Israel feels free to enter Lebanon and do as it wills whenever it feels like it?

The current blockade of Lebanon leaves the Lebanese only one link to the outside world: Syria. Israel is pushing the Lebanese back towards Syria and Iran: so much for modern democracies and the will of the people.

You say that Israel has no choice. This seems to be a pervasive idea in Israeli politics. For Israel, the choice between war and deplomacy is not a choice. Both sides (hizbullah, israel) believe that the other only respects force. No attempt at negotiation was even made by the Israelis; they did not even give the Lebanese government a chance to respond to this independently. The attacks began immediately.

You wrote, "It should be obvious that if Lebanon had never attacked Israel not now and not before the first invasion, Lebanon would never have had a moment's trouble from Israelis." What about the Palestinians that Israel forced into Lebanon? What about the last time Israel attacked Lebanon's airport? Lebanon was not involved in the wars with Israel, and yet it pays the price for them.

"There is NO SINGLE SIMILARITY between Palestinians and what happend in WWII." Let me see: the Palestinians are collected from accross their land and put into Gaza (the most densely populated place on earth). Gazas borders are closed off, and Israel fires thousands of (high precision, modern) rockets into a densely populated civilian region... to fight the terrorists. In other words, ethnic cleansing, collective punishement, racism. There's some similarity to what happened in WWII.

"Israel is responding to arab violence that is sorrounding her. We have no option but to make a clear statement." What do you say to Hizbullah who would say that they have no option but to respond to the Israeli attacks? Violence breads revenge, not peace (specially true in the middle east).

"I am sorry for civilian casualties in Lebanon. This was not supposed to happen - but the responsiblity is only Hizbollah." The responsibility is on Israel, they are the ones firing the (high precision, modern) bombs. Are you aware that the majority of Lebanese people are not part of Hizbullah? That Israel is punishing them as well?

What have Israeli attacks brought but more rockets from Hizbullah, and more suffering in both Lebanon and Israel?

lookaround said...

I am told on the radio to stay in my home.

Hizbollah fires missiles towards every city nearby. There are many people wounded.

Our "high precision, modern" missiles are aimed towards infrastructure.

If hizbollah would have had missiles like that, they would have aim them on even more civilians.

I am sorry for every civilian that is hurt in this war.

Hizbollah gets their orders from Iran and it's lunatic primeminister.

You disapprove hizbollah? great! protest against it! I saw the Lebanese protests against Syria. Why not protest against Hizbollah? Why should Lebanese and Israelis be captives to Iran's strategy?Lebanese need the Lebanese army on it's southern borders, instead of hizbollah.

That is the goal of the Israeli attack, and that should be your goal too.

I am trying to patronise you. I want this war to end. I want Ehud and Eldad back home. I want my friends from my army to be okay. I don't want bombs in Haifa, Carmiel and Naharia, and also not in Beirut.

Josh Scholar said...

Gag, you're right I do sound patronizing.

I'm sorry, but I think that I have to get some saner ideas out there than musclemouth's self defeating people are always helpless victims of government attitude and of the oh so common, Israelis aren't even human, us poor poor victims (should be killing Satan's Jews) ideas.

I find both bad ideas everywhere, and I want to see more rationality.

There's no comparison with Michigan's millia. They're only allowed to keep their guns because they've never used them.

If they ever try to take even the slightest authority more than is allowed a citizen, the FBI or the ATF will sweep them up in a moment.

They're allowed to exist (doing NOTHING btw) because the American constitution allows for "well regulated militia", which the courts have decided is now a function taken up by the police and the army - both official parts of the government.

Other militia in the US exist only as nostalgia, as a theme park to remind Americans of the days when the police was made up of every citizen. And they're not allowed to do ANYTHING that regular citizens can't do, ever. They're not Hezbollah, they're Disneyland.

notorious said...

likewise, hizbala is a theme park to remind us of wen the army to defend lebanon from israel was made up of every citizen not the lebanese army, and 1 more thing, peaple y do u all think that this started here, that hizbala initiated this shit, israel did a long time ago, and it didnt end since.

notorious said...

oh n btw i almost forgot, tauso or wutever the fuck u r called, ur wut i call an infection virus to the world, and idf soldier on vacation, i think ur a good man, u just have to read a litle more history, watch some more news, take notes, compare and contrast, and am sure u will find the right answer
