Iran-Syria Axis Fully Materializing

I don't know what to say anymore. Sayyid Nasrallah is still alive and declaring an open war. Where is our President? Where are our Ministers? Prime Minister? Members of Parliament?

All these institutions and the guardians of these institutions are obsolete at this point. Nasrallah is leading the show. He's defying everything and everyone. He is assuming the position of the guardian of the Prophet's Family, against all odds. This is not about Lebanon anymore; this is about Nasrallah's pride.

The Iran-Syria Axis has just fully materialized!

An Israeli warship was hit on the coast off of Beirut, the same warship that hit Hizbullah's headquarters which housed Nasrallah.

Lebanon is a hostage and all the Lebanese people are a pawn in the hands of the few.

Update: Rumours in the streets of Saida are that the Israelis have landed a ground force. The rumours are unfounded, but the city is terrified!

Update 2: The story has just been clarified by NTV. It appears that reconnaisance personnel from Hizballah noticed Israeli frogmen (i.e. Naval Commandos) on the shores of Saida. They then reported their suspicions to the Lebanese Army. The Army then responded by sealing the area, and searching it thoroughly. The Army then announced that it was all clear and withdrew. They either did not find the frogmen, or the frogmen never landed in the first place.

Update 3: The latest reports (or maybe rumors flowing around in Lebanon) is that Israel will destroy the last major land route leading outside of Lebanon within the next 24 hours. (i.e. they are going to hit the road to syria that goes through Tripoli).

Update 4: Hizbullah attempted to hit another Israeli warplane, but missed and hit an Egyptian ship instead.

"Nobody knows how many rebellions, besides political rebellions, ferment in the masses of life which people earth."

well Nasrallah says teh ship is sinking. Israel says minimal damage and no injuries. I am sure that the truth, as usual, is right in between.

Anonymous said...

"Hezbollah would also strike "beyond Haifa and what is beyond, beyond Haifa," Nasrallah said. He made reference to a new strike on an Israeli naval boat in Lebanese waters. The warship was lightly damaged in the strike, and there were no injuries, the IDF said. "

Joe do you think that a WWII rocket can seriously damage a modern warship?

Solomon2 said...

This is not about Lebanon anymore; this is about Nasrallah's pride.

It never was about Lebanon in the first place. Hizbollah attacked Israel to have a reason to sustain its own existence as an armed force. If you want to be an actor and not just a pawn or human waste, there is only one course to take.

Anonymous said...

The IN probably welcomes the rocket attacks on their ships. Better to have Hezb shoot their (finite number of) rockets at armoured ships than civilian homes.

So stop spinning the news and providing this silly analysis how Israel would like for its ships to be hit. Do you honestly really believe that????

Anonymous said...

Khaled,

here's the snippet about the marines from msnbc for what that's worth ;p

Military officials are discussing contingency plans for what appears now to be the inevitable evacuation of U.S. citizens.

One official says that the most likely plan would be to use the assets from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, based out of Camp Lejeune. The 24th MEU is currently in the Red Sea near Jordan, conducting bilateral and unilateral training exercises.

The most likely candidate from the MEU would be the amphibious assault ship USS Iwo Jima. It resembles a small aircraft carrier, complete with helicopters and light attack aircraft.

One official says that the military is working on the assumption that they would have to evacuate nearly 25,000 people.

It is sad that the government of Lebanon has not had the strength to rule their own nation. A country can not survive when political factions have their own private armies outside of the control of the government.

But often in history there comes a time when the people have simply had enough and they don't wait for their government to act. I see no problem with a Shiite political party, but it is time they are disarmed and the soldiers returned to their country.

This coordinated action of the Syria/Iran axis is a blunder of historic proportion. I have not heard a single Arab country endorse the action. If the Lebanese people cried for help in disarming the political factions, I suspect the world would come to their aid.

It is so very sad. I hope and pray that the innocent people of Lebanon be spared any injury and they find the strength to do what must be done.

When Israel withdrawls from west bank, guess what more war. The only solution you
cave men will accept is the complete destruction of Israel. If god snapped his fingers today
and all the jews in the world vanished, the muslims would still be killing hindus, buddhists, christians,

If god made muslims vanish, the world would be silent with peace.

Anonymous said...

1. Are you aware that the Disputed Territories never belonged to the “Palestinians” and only came into Israeli possession as a result of the 1967 six day war in which Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon all massed forces at Israel’s border in order to “push the Jews into the sea”. The Arabs lost and Israel took control of the land. Do you agree that if the Koranimals don’t want to lose territory to Israel, then they shouldn’t start wars? Do you agree that there is justice that Israel, who as far back as 1948 has always sought peace with her far larger neighbors, should live in prosperity - making the desert bloom - while the residents of 19 adjacent Arab countries who are blessed with far more land as well as oil wealth live in their own feces?

2. Did you know that the “Palestinians” could have had their own country as far back as 1948 had they accepted the UN sponsored partition plan which gave Israel AND the Palestinians a countries of their own on land which Jews had lived on for thousands of years before Mohammed ever had a wet dream about virgins? The Arabs rejected the UN offer and went to war with the infant Israeli nation. The Arabs lost and have been whining about it ever since. Do you agree this is like a murderer who kills his parents and asks for special treatment since he is now an orphan?

3. Can you tell us ANY Arab country which offers Jews the right to be citizens, vote, own property, businesses, be a part of the government or have ANY of the rights which Israeli Arabs enjoy? Any Arab country which gives those rights to Christians? How about to other Arabs? Wouldn’t you just LOVE to be a citizen of Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Iran, or Syria?

4. Since as many Jews (approximately 850,000) were kicked out of Arab countries as were Arabs who left present day Israel (despite being literally begged to stay), why should Arabs be permitted to return to Israel if Jews aren’t allowed to set foot in Arab countries? Can you explain why Arabs can worship freely in Israel but Jews would certainly be hung from street lamps after having their intestines devoured by an Arab mob if they so much as entered an Arab country?

5. Israel resettled and absorbed all of the Jews from Arab countries who wished to become Israelis. Why haven’t any Arab countries offered to resettle Arabs who were displaced from Israel, leaving them to rot for 60 years in squalid refugee camps? And why are those refugee camps still there? Could it be that the billions of dollars that the UNWRA has sent there goes to terrorist groups like Hamas, Islamic Jihad, El Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, or Hezbollah? How did Yassir Arafat achieve his $300 million in wealth? Why aren’t these funds distributed for humanitarian use?

6. Did you know that the Arabs in the disputed territories (conquered by Israel in the 1967 war which was started by Arabs) and who are not Israelis already have two countries right now? And that they are called Egypt and Jordan?

7. If your complaint is about the security fence which Israel is finally building in the Disputed Territories, are you aware that it is built solely to keep the “brave” Arab terrorists out so that they can no longer self detonate on busses, in dining halls or pizzerias and kill Jewish grandmothers and schoolchildren? Why are the Arabs so brave when they target unarmed civilians but even when they outnumber their opponents they get their sandy asses kicked all the way to Mecca when they are faced with Jewish soldiers? Why do Arab soldiers make the French look like super heroes?

8. Please explain why you are so concerned about Arabs, who possess 99% of the land in this region and are in control of the world’s greatest natural resource, which literally flows out of the ground? Can’t their brother muslims offer some of the surplus land and nature’s riches to the “Palestinians”? Or is it true that Arabs are willing to die right down to the last “Palestinian”?

9. Why do you not exhibit the same level of concern for say, people in Saudi Arabia who are beheaded, subject to amputation, stoning, honor killing etc.? What about women who are denied any semblance of basic civil rights, including the right not to be treated as property for the entertainment and abuse of her father, brothers, or husbands? What about the Muslims in Sudan and Egypt who are still enslaved, or the women there whose genitalia are barbarically cut off? How about the oppression of Shiites by Sunnis, the gassing of the Kurds by Iraq, or the massacre of “Palestinians” by Jordan (Black September)? Why doesn’t this concern you?

10. Did you ever stop to wonder how much better off everyone in the region would be if Arabs stopped trying to kill Jews and destroy Israel? What would happen if the Israelis gave up their weapons and disarmed? Would they live to see the next day? But what would happen if the Arabs completely disarmed? You know the answer: They would all be AT PEACE! And if there is no war to rile them up, the Arabs would be forced to look at their own repressive, pre-medieval societies. Why would they want to do that when there are Jews to kill?

11. Have you heard “People who define themselves primarily by what they hate, rather than who they love, are doomed to failure and misery”? Can you see the parallels to the Arabs, who are blessed with land and oil, but still gladly train their children to kill themselves in order to kill Jews? Have you heard Golda Meir’s words to the effect of “There will be peace when the Arabs love their children more than they hate ours”? Why do the Arabs hate so much?

"israel has admitted its damage to an entire sovereign nation."

It appears that the sovereignty of Lebanon is a matter of debate. If one is to claim sovereignty then one must at the same time claim responsibility.

The government of Lebanon has claimed they are not responsible for the actions taken against a neighboring country across an international border and so this is also an admission of the lack of sovereignty.

Until such time as the government of Lebanon exercises sovereignty within their borders, any claims of sovereignty with regard to international relations have no basis.

to the israel-aggression apologist with the long, long, long post:

israel's total inability to incorporate, find a peace, or otherwise solve the palestinian/israeli issue over more than half a century is your problem, your self-created problem. since the palestinians are your victims and have lived under your oppression, it has been in your court to solve this. you have only aggressed and whined. it's so - old and tired. and that's just from a non-affected person's standpoint. i'm sure "old" isn't the word the palestinians would use. they know their words are useless to bring about change - obviously.

and now - your actions in lebanon have zapped ANY understanding that might have been. you have no skills to exist in the big, wide world. your foreign policy is a motherfucking disaster. your leaders need to meditate and dwell on this word: diplomacy - maybe even from a hague jail cell.

Hizballa is playing with fire. Israel is overreacting because we have new goverment that wants to take hard measures and show lebanon that it will not take hizballa resposible and punish whole lebanon civilians for hizballa's dangeras games.
Hizballa is sponsored by iran, and because she lives by the sword the war is good for her and give her justification to exist.
when we have peace (inshalla soon...), hizballa will be only an extremic muslim political movement supported by syria and Iran and will not have the money and power! she will gain power only in war! War and blood and bombings lebanon is hizballa interest to exist.
just think if this is Lebanon interests or not.
this war is asolutly not israel choice, we have left lebanon and we have nothing to there. we have enough problems with the palestinians in Gaza (which we also left to leave there life with no israelis inside...)
but still the extremists Hamas kidnaped soldier and firing daily rockets into israel.
israel has very strong army backed up by USA so the damage on your side is much much bigger than the damage on our side.
again israel left lebanon and left gaza. PM ulmert said that israel will withraw the rest of the west bank.
hamas and hizballa are sposnored by iran and syria which have different agenda and iunterests than the lebanees and palestinians.
Egipt and Jordan have peace agreament with israel and this countries are blooming.
lebanon with bloom and restore her old glory only when she sign a peace agreament with israel.
get rid of the extreaminsts that need war to exist.....

The virulent reaction from some of you against Israel is completely understandable and I don't think any of us sitting in our living rooms in Western Europe are in a position to lecture.

What interests me is how many of you thought this way several days ago and how many of you are from the usual "Zionist entity" crowd.

I suspect quite a few of you fall in the first category (judging for example from blogger perpetual refugee's posts on some blogs). From Hizbollah's point of view it's probably mission accomplished.

The Israelis reacted exactly as Hizbollah hoped they would, the temperature has been raised sufficiently and noone remembers what happened to spark the whole thing off. Events, and people's perceptions have moved on.

Sadly Hizbollah will be the only winner here. Their capability to endure casualties and sacrifices (yours too, whether you want to endure them or not) is far greater than that of the Israelis. And if your economy is wrecked at the end of it. Well, it was all for a greater good wasn't it? Wasn't it?

Hizballah kidnapping did not occur on Sheba farms. Check it once and forever. They started to shell towns first, and then attacked the border patrol. It is a casus belli, so we have war. And I do not understand why Israel should take care of Lebanese civilians if Lebanon does not take care of Israeli ones? The only reason of these higher expectations could be that Israelis are inherently better, smarter, braver etc. than Lebanese. That is what you are saying?

How commented to israeli bloggers when Hezballah shelled Israel, kidnapped soldiers last time etc.? Those who didnot have no right to complain now, IMHO.

Time for a news flash: The initial Hizbollah attack has caused the death of 3 soldiers, abduction of 2 others and the wounding of 7 ciivilians as a diverson from the attack. The attack was commited inside the Israeli border (not in the Sheba farms). This is clearly a casus belli.No nation on this earth will permit such an action. If Lebanon is indeed a soverign nation than it bears responsebility for this attack and has therefor declared an all out war on Israel. If lebanon is not responsible than it is not a soverign of it's on territory forcing Israel to fight whoever did this with out any regards for it's borders or goverment. Just look what has happened to Japan after pearl-Harbor and consider yourself lucky.BTW maybe israel should create it's own militia in northern Israel and let them do the dirty work.

dirkthecow said...

Turning to a solution. I've seen a variation of this posted before, but how about a) the Lebanese Army commits to maintain it's own border (which is not the same as saying Hizbollah disarms - I appreciate that's easier said than done) b) Israel commits to respect Lebanese sovereignty c) the Israeli soldiers are released d) Lebanese prisoners are released in Israel. Everyone is seen to have won something - Hizbollah is seen to have brought about the release of Lebanese prisoners, Israel is seen to have security on its northern border and two soldiers back, the Lebanese Govt is strengthened and regains effective control on the border.

Unfortunately that equation all adds up to stability. Do you think that's what Hizbollah wants? Groups like this are great at playing the long game. And the long game is to destabilise Israel and re-write some of the basic rules in the region. No matter what the fall-out is.

Please let me start by saying that I already visited Lebanon. For almost two years, I was a soldier situated there. In order to protect Israely citizens, from rogue element of your society. I vowed to myself that I would return one day, when there's peace, to have a picnic at all the beautiful places I've seen. I do believe the peace will arrive, eventually.

But to the point.

There is an american satire movie, called 'Team America'. It critisizes America hard-headedness and brutality while trying to solve global problems, with the good intentions they have, while critisizing the other side as well, who'd rather do nothing in the face of global danger. And it also have a lot of quite amusing songs. Now, the fact that a song is amusing, doesn't make it wrong, or stupid. The one song I find relevant to this situation is "Freedom isn't Free". From the lyrics -

Freedom isn't free
It costs folks like you and me
And if we don't all chip in
We'll never pay that bill
Freedom isn't free
No, there's a hefty f*ckin' fee.
And if you don't throw in your buck 'o five
Who will?
(Full lyrics - http://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/teamamericaworldpolice/freedomisntfree.htm )

The Hizballa is a problem To Israel, mainly, but also to Lebanon. At the very least, you should be considering them a criminal element. Yet, what was done on your side to stop them?
Reading on the blog, I see again and again - "We can't do a thing". Well, who do you expect to do the work for you? And that is what Israel is trying to do now, in part. I don't think anyone really believe here that the IDF can erase all Hizballa from Lebanon. But we expect to pressure you enough to do that. To fight for your freedom. Freedom isn't free, after all.

Please, do something about them. Ask help from your friends, if you need to. But please, do something. I don't enjoy seeing your people suffer. But then again, I do not enjoy seeing suffering on our side.

Hezbullah is an extension of Iran and holds the same

act to terminate this threat if they want to maintain a
modern peacefull society with advanced norms.

i do belive that a lebanon with no Hezbullah can upgrade

Islam has never been peaceful. The crusades was a Christian response to the Islamic invasion of Europe and the Holy Land. The Muslims were trying to invade France from Spain. They also stole the Holy Land from the Christians. Even Egypt and Iran were not always Muslim. Muslims are so ignorant of their own culture. The beautiful, advanced Persian culture was wiped out and replaced with this pseudo-Persian Islamic Iran.



Today Muslims are still waging their doomed jihad, against Russian, in the Phillipines, Israel, Lebanon, Indonesia, India the list goes on and on. Such a violent people. People are getting sick of Muslim terrorism. Countries like Israel and India are no longer feeling alone in their battle against muslim violence.

I am not a racist. But just because you have nice tourism and a great nightlife in Beirut doesn't give you the right to call yourself a country if your own government cannot exercise authority within it's own borders. That is not a country. That is Somalia, a lawless land. That is why Israel had to act, because you preferred to ignore the problem. Now look at you.

"They also stole the Holy Land from the Christians."

he who steals from a thief is exempt from punishment?

the holy land was given by god to the jews.

"Islam has never been peaceful"

have you read the koran? I guess not... the koran forbids murder. too bad the fundementals dont do what is written in the koran, they just say they do.

Reading this blog has made me see, that for the most part, all everyone (besides terrorist hezbollah) wants is peace. Our region is sick of war, sick of having to watch our backs every time we go out, sick of watching those who speak out get axed. I wish there was an easier way than this to remove the elements of terror from my country, Lebanon. I know our government is too weak and if the ministers were to rise up against Hezbollah / demand the implementation of res 1559, our country will be in a civil war and we just can't take that chance. I wish Israel would also direct its attacks against the SPONSORS of hezbollah because this snake--no matter if it is beheaded now--will grow a new and stronger head with the help of Syria and Iran.
And to the Lebanese who are wary of what the Israelis are saying (that they don't hate all Lebanese just Hezbollah), is it really so hard to believe ? We lebanese have no reason to hate them either...their response is dirty, violent, much too aggressive, but if it will rid us of the poison in the south then I'm happy for it.

One more thing to add...
it's something that so many bloggers and so many people have said but I'll echo it. In what kind of twisted, undemocratic, weak state can it be "okay" for one group (terrorists in this matter) to decide the fate of an entire country and its populace ? It sickens me. No one asked to be dragged into all out war, as nasrallah recently called it. No one wants to battle...we are tired and broken and all we want is to live life without fear. There are so many prisoners in Syrian jails, by are we going and kidnapping them ? No...because that is not how intelligent, democratically minded people think. I'm so disgusted right now. And more than anything, I'm so so so amazed at how southerners can see the ruined bridges and broken roads and dead bodies and still dare to shout their allegiance to the monster.

To Lebanese student: what do you prefer civil war or all out war with Israel. I am sorry to be so harsh but in the end it boils down to that. If you wish to be a sovereign nation try to act like it.

lebanese student,

It's a good comment. Israel doesn't not hate the Lebanese people. But there is no such thing as a bloodless war. All wars cost lives. Innocents will get killed if they are in the wrong place at the wrong time. That's why Israel dropped leaflets -- so people would flee! But Israel does not try to kill innocents. Also, consider that a civil war with Hisbollah would have cost Lebanon FAR MORE innocent life and lasted perhaps YEARS. This invasion is a blessing in disguise to you. You should thank Israel for doing your dirty work for you.

Well I prefer neither, but a civil war would be the worst option for us. Who will come to diffuse the situation ? No one did before, no one will now. At least if Israel does what its doing (attacks that at least on the outside seem to hurt hezbollah) the eyes of the international community will be on what's going on.

to the anonymous that responded to me,

I will not thank israel, but as I said in my last post, a civil war will be the worst possible option for us. I am fine with diffusing Hezbollah, I am fine with what's going on. It's unfortunate that this decision (to kidnap the soldiers) was made without the agreement of 99.99% of the Lebanese public. It couldn't have come at a worst time. But this is war and more than anything, I want Hezbollah out.
What I don't want...is for the war to have inconsequential results for hezbollah. Because we will end up rebuilding, having lost all of our tourists, the economy down, infrastructure ruined...all while the TERRORISTS still exist.

Maybe he has a point, this way Hizbollah gets hit, Israel gets it, some civilians gets hit... but he is safe.. If I were him I would have done the same, as long as I didn't want FREEDOM....

Well Done!
Hizbullah restored the lost pride of Lebanon!
We are the only one who can fight the Zionists who raped our land and daughters!
I'm with you, my Muslim brodhers from Lebanon. Don't let go. the muslim resistance will reach any place in ocupied palestine! only war will release our land! well done Nasrallah - you are the new Salleh Adin صلاح الدين يوسف ابن ايوب
Bring back the glory the Lebanon. I wish you become the president of lebanon soon.

Shmulik said...

Lebanese student: it's not the international community that can save you, it's you by denouncing the Hizballah and acting against them. Israel can assist you against the Hizballah. Have no mistake, If it so chooses Israel can make sure that civil war is the better option for you.

israel from norther israel, i've lived my entire life without the taste of freedom. I was born into war, grew up under syrian occupation, and now we are shackled by Hezbullah. You are not Lebanese--you don't know what will happen if the government so much as utters a condemnation of hezbullah...and our own president is the worse of them all, saying "we are all moukawama." Our civil society, our opposition, is not strong enough to do anything about it. We have become politically retarded by years and years of conflict and militia-minded mentality.
I want freedom, like anyone else. Freedom from the poison of Hezbullah, freedom from regional influences, etc.

Israel from northen Israel said...

Nassar, curse you, and all your likes.

I can write so much about your wrong idiology, but I am sure that every one can see how wrong you are.

Again, just look, Israel wants peace, Syria wants the destruction of Israel,

Although Israel can wipe Syria out of the map, just like we did in 67, just like we repelled their attacks at 73.

"Israel is targeting all lebanese not just hizbollah"

That is because as a part of the Lebanese Government, Hizbollah's actions are regarded as the actions of Lebanon. If you do not want such a response, disarm Hizbollah or kick them out of the government.

Let me put it another way: A faction of the Lebanese government crossed an international border, attacked a killed the soldiers of a neighboring country, and kidnapped two of them. What would you expect a country to do in response to an attack like that?

Hizbollah is a party to the government of Lebanon so their actions speak for Lebanon.

you have to look at comments like "israel is doing you a favor, lebanon" as the propaganda bullshit it is.

in the same breath, it calls itself a victim of your "state-sponsored terrorism." in the same breath, it terrorizes your borders. in the same breath, it bombs your country - invades it by air, land, and sea.

israel - you are no better than the people you call "terrorists." actually, you are much, much worse.

someone from israel - let me get this right. israel debilitated an entire nation's transportation system - because you thought hezbollah would take 2 soldiers to iran????? this is such an outrageous and pathetic smokescreen. is this the now-prevailing story, or have you thought up something better to bullshit us with?

Shmulik said...

to nassar: What brave words, care to back them with action? of course not you can only fight by proxy and let Lebanese and Palestinians face the fire. Your president is scared shitless that next-time our planes will be over his palace there might be some bombs involved.

There are only three (3) Lebanese being held in Israeli prisons. One is Samir Kuntar who perpetrated a terrorist attack in 1979 where he murdered several family members on the beach in Northern Israel. He was tried in Israli courts and sentenced to over 500 years in prison (they have no death penalty).

I don't know the names of the other two Lebanese being held.

All the other Lebanese prisoners were released in the Israel/Hezbolla prisoner exchange a couple years ago. Nasralla demanded that all of them be released, of course, but Israel refused to release Kuntar and these other two. After that release there were supposed to be further negotiations in which Israel would release the remaining prisoners and Hezbolla would provide information regarding Ron Arad. Those negotiations apparently broke down and apparently Hezbolla decided they have no other way to pressure Israel but to hold Israelis prisoner and make a swap.

To those of you asking if two soldiers are worth this war I ask: Is the release of Kuntar worth the destruction of South Lebanon?

nassar-syria,
you and those who share your mentality are those who have made our country unliveable. we have a rich history that's been debased to bomb shelters and fear. I hope you will still maintain the words you say when you too face israeli bombs.

Dear anonymous, I am truly sorry that you never tasted the taste of freedom, but you can start a revolution, every great nation once was a scattered nation, full of enemies from the inside and the outside..

It doesn't matter if its 2 soldiers or 2 million. A life, freedom is more worth than a damn highway. Free the prisoners, extend Lebanese sovereignty to the border so there can be peace and Lebanese prisoners can go home too.
