PORTS AND ARMY UNDER ATTACK

The Tripoli Port has been shelled by Israelis!

OH MY GOD!!! THAT'S MY HOME CITY. MY FAMILY IS IN THE CAR RIGHT NOW LEAVING THE CITY UP TO THE MOUNTAINS. THEY WERE SCARED WHEN I LAST CALLED THEM. I SHOULD CALL THEM RIGHT NOW TO DOUBLE CHECK ON THEM. YA ALLAH!!!!!

The Beirut port is also being hit!!!

Update: Al-Manara, next to AUB in Beirut, is being shelled right now!!!!!!!!!!! It's getting worse.

Update 2: BEIRUT LIGHTHOUSE DESTROYED!!! ALL LEBANON NOW IS UNDER ATTACK!!!!

Update 3: Jounieh and Aamchit ports have been hit.

Update 4: A raid targets the army radar base in Wajh al-Hajar in the northern city of Batroun. Casualties reported.

Update 5: One Lebanese soldier died and three wounded. Okay, so now the Lebanese Army is being attacked. And also all the Lebanese ports. In Tripoli's port they hit wheat reserves. I'm sure Hizbullah fighters are not hiding there. What about Jounieh or Aamchit? They are touristic ports.

Update 6: Army establishments in the Beirut port were hit. The Hamat airport in the north was hit also. Amr Mousa the Secretary General of the Arab League is speaking right now.

Update 7: The Arab League has decided to "help" Lebanon. How? The Arab Ministers have came to a conclusion that they have all dropped the Peace Negotiations long time ago. Therefore, they decided to revive the negotiations by taking the issue to the UN Security Council. Go figure!

Update 8: Our President went from Baabda to Faqra (for "rest"). While PM Seniora is making his incessant calls and meetings. Our President is pathetic.

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

Good for you. My family don't own a second house. They are still in Beirut, living 10 minutes from the Southern suburbs.

Doha, I pray your family is safe. I hope this will end as soon as possible, for the sake of all of us, on both sides of the border.

they just struck the beirut port too, twice, but it didn't appear too severe (saw it with my own eyes, plus all the smoke was cleared within four mins). they probably just aren't done yet...

sorry if you guys have a language policy, but motherFUCKERS!

Awb from Israel said...

I hope that your family is OK, and I really am sorry about those bombings, but we must do it. We can't just let the Hizballa attack us without responding...

dear vb,

yes, jounieh port was also hit. i just talked to someone there - smoke rising up from the port after a few hits.

seems like the israelis are showing that despite hisbollah having iranian rockets (like the one that hit their boat yesterday) they can still hit the shore. they're making a point.

now - also BATROUN. (got the info as i'm typing this comment.)

I think your military command is as criminal as the armed group they're trying to decimate. That doesn't justify us wanting to eliminate every general does it? Or maybe it does. You ppl are now giving us reasons to "must do it" as well....

You have to return the kidnapped soldiers and stop shelling Katjusha rockets on Israeli cities, it is that simple, until then we will bomb you as long as necessary.

If a civil war breaks out, you reckless, arrogant fucks, the only emergent state in Lebanon will be an ISLAMIC STATE! All the moderates will leave you nitwits! Then you and the Islamic state can go on destroying each other, for your deserve each other, you scum.

What makes me boil even more is the "most trusted name in the news, CNN" reporting on the events.

You'd think life is so simple. Black, white. Evil, Good. "We're uprooting the evil tooth, it's painful, but it's ok". Seeing families and children and your country charred and burning is beyond "painful", it stirs violent reactions in the most moderate of us.

CNN and the rest of the media are either dumb, or they want do dumb their audience down, or both. Not dumb, but rather inhuman. I want to see the people saying "it must be done" go through an air raid and see death in their own eyes, and still feel good about the "must be done" rhetoric.... Just sickening.

Please stop this naive "terrorist" description.... It's easy to justify actions if you can use labels as you please. The label applies to your own IDF as well, and to any armed group that believes killing civilians is justified means to reach a goal.

I was listening to an Israelian TV and heard an official from CNESSET who declared that the whole people from Liban desserves what happens!
He also told the journalists that the problem wasn't only Hizzbullah, but the fact that Liban is an arab country and that you can't trust arabs, muslims or christians.
So, my friends, let's build a strong national resistance and bury the old quarels.

If IDF would target civilians, then here would be much less number of comments and Berut would be a sweet memory.
You're ignorant. Our cities is under fire too. Except Katyusha doesn't choose where to hit. Read the news.
No country will tolerate attacks on its borders and cities.
You want peace and quiet? Fine. But we will not pay the price.
I give a flying **ck about your internal politics and tourist seasons, if my brothers attacked from your countrys territory.
Its not about "we have to do it". Its about "we'll do whatever needs to be done".
And i trust IDF on that matter.

Anonymous said...

Robert,
Why is it up to us (Israel) to stop this. Why can't you release the soldiers, lay down your rockets and stop the agression in northern Israel? If Lebanon did this it would stop. We have put up with Hezbollahs attacks in Northern Israel for too long. No this is't a video game, Israeli children are at the other end of those rockets too.

Jean said...

IDF is attacking lebanese almy in Batroun!!! One Lebanese soldier is dead. The whole military position is under fire!

Anonymous said...

People on this board seem to be surprised that Israel is targetting things that don't have the word "Hezbollah" on it. Well, that's the downside of allowing terrorists to roam free in a country. It legitimizes targetting of anything that is OR could be used as a platform for war-making. Maybe the former Beirut lighthouse was the location from where the Silkworm missile was fired yesterday.

In any case, Lebanon will no longer be used as an outpost for Iran after this is all said and done.

Did Israel start bombing Lebanon before or after Hezbollah kidnapped 2 soldiers and fired off rockets at it? The violence will never end until you guys start facing the reality of the situation. Kick hezbollah out!

Jay said...

I hate Hezbollah, but we are emerging from years of death and destruction and foreign occupation (israel and Syria) now you expect miracles. israel never worked with lebanon or showed a ounce of patience. the kid napping should not have happened nor should rockets be fired, but we did not yet have the resources to deal with Hezbollah and now you have assured us that we will not for many many more years.

You hate us, we hate you. The only option is the barrel of a gun. If neither of us is going to stop hating then we need to accept war and that people are going to die. I am sorry if you find that cruel and uncaring. I am a realist. Currently we can not live side by side in peace. Surrender and we can talk peace. We will not surrender so it is up to you. Surrender or fight and try to make us surrender. That is war.

Jad J said...

well for the military expert advising us to send the army to disarm hizbullah, my dear, I'm Lebanese and i know what is the Lebanese Army weaponry, they still use the old Bunher (remember those??), Syria didnt let the lebanese army modernize its weaponry, rather it infested it with Syrian Intelligence, and thats a fact, they had all the time to infiltrate the entire Government structure from the bottom up to the president to an extent that to this day, we are still infiltrated.

Now i've been reading this Blog for the past 3 years and all i hear is Israelis whining why we dont do anything about Hizbullah. I hate Hizbullah, My msn nickname is currently "Fuck Hizbullah" and i never liked those guys same as every Lebanese Christian and probably every other religion in the country. But Israelis, put some sense into ure heads and answer me this:
"Iran and Syria are the biggest threat To Israel at the moment, they are like the Serpent Head, why doesnt it bomb them since we all know that the entire arab region hate Iran and Syria, in addition, Syria has an obsolete army consisting of 60% fags amongst its rank (official numbers). You would like this wont you, and i bet Halutz and his friends wants it too, I DO TOO. BUT, USA wont let u do that becoz it exercises pressure, Economical and political pressure. Does that make from you cowards and Whinos?

Still with me? Ok now make that smaller on a scale of 1/10,000 , on Lebanese scale relative to Israel, We cannot throw Hizbullah out becoz the Lebanese are not armed, the Lebanese Army isnt armed enough to break the hizbullah (the Syrians made sure of that), In addition to have installed a Terror factor throughout last year with the 14 Bombings around lebanon that targeted economical and political Joints. Despite that, we were trying to TALK our way out of this, probably a bit slowly, but we were getting there, SO SPARE US YOUR WHINING coz ure not so different from us for god's sake.

Instead, Try lessening your hate posts and support the people who are facing Syria and Hizbullah for you, the People that received the PLO Plague for you for several years and drowned in civil war so you would NOT be PLAGUED yourself, The people that are supporting every FART happening in the middle east for you, coz we're the "wistle on the Presto", everytime there is excess pressure in Israel, something pops up in lebanon (mainly the PLO), The people that were occupied by the Syrian Scum so u wont have to dispute them in Gulan Heights and were given Lebanon instead.

So forget the PEanuts and hit the damn Serpent head.
So lemme see u disarm a radical Shii'a group armed with AK47 and willing to blow themselves up around every corner while u have Pens and Papers as weapons.

You've never done nothing to prevent current crisis which started with abduction of 2 israeli soldiers, killing another 8. All in cross-border raid.

stan - you too seem to be a victim of IITS - "Israeli Inaccurate Timeline Syndrome."

hezbollah took 2 israeli soldiers, in order to bargain for the 3 lebanese israel illegally holds in its country (but you don't respect other nations, or international law).

the rockets came after you bombed lebanon's infrastructure - including the airport, an electricity plant, 2 military (not hezbollah - lebanese) bases, the port, and southern lebanon.

israel. perpetual victims - and always "explaining." this needs no further explanation. your survival isn't worth the death of thousands of others. your life just isn't worth more than another's life. plain and simple.

Hoping for your safety and that of your family. Lebanon will survive however those in Damascus should be much worried. There is a prophecy in the Bible which declares
"The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer [are] forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make [them] afraid The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the LORD of hosts. " Isaiah 17: 1-3

Bush has pushed hard for Syria to get its grubby paws off Lebanon, and is obviously working hard to topple the Iranian mullahs, so don't slime his intentions re: Lebanon.

Bush, America, and Israel all want a peaceful, democratic, SECULAR Lebanon.

Hezbollah, Syria and Iran all want an armed camp from which to launch rockets against the "Zionist entity."

Regular Lebanese are obviously getting caught in the middle, which is unfortunate, but this was going to happen sooner or later. Better now than in five years when Iran has nukes.

"israel never worked with lebanon or showed a ounce of patience."

No patience? This is not the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th time Hezbollah has rocketted Israel. Looks like Lebanon was taking that patience for granted?

To those comparing IDF attack to Hizballah rockets:
More than 100 dead in Lebanon.
More than 300 wouned.
Civilians.
In 3 days.

I do not see any grounds for comparison given the number of casualties.
Besides, aren't Hizballah "terrorists"?
What does that make the IDF?

21 civilians died today, 12 of them children, because the IAF struck a DIRECT hit at a van filled with refugees escaping a village. Not any village. A village showered with leaflets by Israel in warning. The IDF knew there will be refugees leaving the village.
What does that make the IDF? Huh?
What does that make you?

I am sorry, but you sink waaaay below Hizballah.

"I am so sorry your heart is so hardened. I only meant to comfort you. I am an independent voter, speaking as one human being to another and do not speak for any government."

you're about as independent as a robot.

my heart isn't "hardened" - how SANCTIMONIOUS of you. how - "drinking coffee in your safe kitchen" you are. how brainwashed from american propaganda you are.

my heart, unlike yours, is alive and acutely bleeds for lebanon. i know destruction when i see it, and i'm not blind to which hands have blood on them. that's israel and the US.

israel has and continues to decimate lebanon, with the use of US backing and military supplies. and you say "americans are on the side of lebanon?" what are you smoking? get a clue.

Jay said...

We do not have the means to take the border. israel bares some responsibility for the occupation. israel dumped the palistinian people here - and slaughtered (Sabra and Shatila)defensless people. do you understand the political dynamic here? we do not ahve an army capable of securing the border now. bombing innocent Lebanese serves No purpose.

CNN is broadcasting the speech of PM Seniora right now. I swear that the guy translating seems illiterate. Of all the english speaking lebanese, why does CNN have to choose this guy to translate?

From USA here again...

And in addedum, if the Israel army really wanted to take on Hezbollah, they would have worked with the Lebanese government and made coordinated raids. From reading the Lebanese PM's comments, and everybody's thoughts, I don't think anyone would of been against a coordinated ground assault without random shelling..

But that is not what Israel wants. Punishing an entire civilian populace for what a few do is by no means justified...Perspective wise if a radical element from the USA (and believe me we have quite a few) were to go across the border and shell Mexico, I wouldn't feel they were justified to start nuking or bombing the USA (though that is an impossibility, nonetheless).

"We do not have the means to take the border", then I guess Lebanon is not a sovereign nation if it doesn't have the means to secure its border. You still haven't told me what you expect Israel to do while its gets rocketed and its soldiers kidnapped. Is there any other country in the world that would sit idly buy while it was getting attacked?

"and slaughtered (Sabra and Shatila)defensless people. " - weren't they killed by Lebanese Christians?


"bombing innocent Lebanese serves No purpose.", I don't think that's the purpose of the Israeli operation. Arab media loves to inflame the "arab street". Remember Jenin? The massacre that wasn't?

You can't really have it both ways. Either you are sovereign and take full responsibility for what happened on the border, or do not take repsonsibility and blaim Hizbollah as if they were some aliens who just landed from Mars and immediately started this mess. And that means you not sovereign if in reality you are controlled not by your government, but by some evil force.

Hezbollah raid

At 9:05 AM local time on July 12, 2006[2] Hezbollah's military wing launched a barrage of 9K51 Grad rockets[citation needed] and mortars on Israeli towns and military positions along the Lebanese border, apparently as a diversion.[24] A force of infiltrators then moved 200 meters into Israel territory, attacked two armoured IDF Humvees patrolling the border near the Israeli village of Zar'it with anti-tank rockets[citation needed], killing three soldiers and taking the remaining two in captivity to Lebanon's territory. Hezbollah has named this operation "True Promise".

The IDF confirmed that two Israeli soldiers were captured by Hezbollah, and identified them as Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev. An Israeli Merkava Mark II tank was damaged by a 300 kg improvised explosive device as it attempted to pursue Hezbollah into Lebanon. All four of the crew members were killed. Another Israeli soldier was killed when he came under heavy fire during an attempted recovery of the bodies from the tank.[25] In all, 8 soldiers were killed, 2 captured and 5 wounded.[2]

Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah said that a prisoner exchange was the only way to secure the release of the soldiers.[26]

Here's what an Egyptian general said of fighting the pussy Israelis:

"This idiot Nasrallah. He is so funny. He keeps on issuing threats, he has no idea what he is talking about. What Israel is doing to him now is just gentle padding on the shoulders. Abou Shakha dah didn't see what we saw. Israel fought on 3 fronts in 1967 and it was hell. I was there, I saw it all. He has no tanks, no boats, he has nothing except a few toys he got from Iran and it seems abu shakha dah don't know that Israel confronted 3 of the most powerful armies in the region at the same time. If Israel wanted to brutally crush him it can do so in 1 hour."

But that's not the point. As an Israeli I definitely agree that Israeli policies are not always moral and/or intelligent. The occupation of the West Bank is stupid and immoral, the failure to strengthen Abu Mazen and moderate Palestinians and many other examples. But this situation is different. I think the IDF enjoys 100% backing from the Israeli public this time. It is sad, but we simply can't keep on one more day with HA on are border, initiating conflict whenever they want, with zero provocation.

Okay, my attempt at reason. though I would say reason is one of the first casualties of war. First collective punishment does not work. I despise HA with every breath I take as do most Lebanese. Israel must work with us to defeat HA. Believe it or not there are sane people governing our land. Diplomacy could have worked to free your soldier, why kill innocent civilians? why? in the end we will negotiate it always ends that way. In time when Lebanon strengthens we will be able to deal with HA. we simply can't right now. sad but tru. now you are killing us because we can't in large part because of what Syria and yes Israeli put us through. I try to not hate Israel, but many Israelis I do hate until you have walked in my shoes be careful judging me.

You mean like the last time they kidnapped and killed Israeli soldiers? And then what? "Diplomacy" with terrorists doesn't work, because by negotiating with them you are validating and encouraging their tactics. Think about it. Do you really believe that if Israel negotiates with Hezbollah this time, Hezbollah will never rocket Israel again? Will never kidnap more soldiers and issue new demands? And then what's your advice? Negotiate again?

Your hope may be fulfilled. I am sure that will bring you great comfort knowing me and my three children are dead. peace be with you as well.

Unlike asshole, I don't hope you are killed. For that matter I don't want any innocent Lebanese killed. Yet I also am tired of seeing Israel attacked and no one does anything about it. What I do want to see is that you wake the fuck up, jay. Your country has been taken over by Hezbollah. Take it back. You whine about the US helping Israel, too fucking bad. They are our friends. So is Egypt, which receives almost the same amount of aid as Israel does. Why not ask for a piece of the pie to get the funds to expel Hezbollah? Of course that takes balls...

by pussies, i don't mean your military strength - i mean your moral character and your inability to do anything OTHER than exert military strength. your attack on lebanon is largely unanswered, as you knew it would be. pussies.

Guess that makes you an even bigger pussy because you have yet to show the "moral character" to stand up against Hezbollah. Get some backbone and quit sqeauling like a bitch.

Myself like most Irish people are outraged at Israel’s behaviour. Ireland is in the EU and let me assure you that the majority of EU citizens feel angry about Israel bombardment of Lebanon!!!

Donj thankfully we in Israel Don't give a rat's ass about yours or your Irelands opinion. Indeed people who blew up pubs in London are the best at teaching us Moral lessions. Thanks a lot.
Sarcasm aside, please tell me if you know of a nation that is repeatedly attackd without provocation (at least 6 or 7 times in the last 6 years) from another "sovereign" nation and does nothing about it?? What would you do in our position??

Deliver the two soldiers to Israel, along with Nasrallah's head in a sack, and I bet it's all over. That's all it would take to satisfy the Israelis. If you guys can't get that done, then I don't know what to say to you. Keep your heads down.

As my user name suggests i am deeply concerned about the current on-goings in the middle east. I am so concerned in fact that this is the first blog I am writing, and I am doing it mainly as an outlet for the anoyance and disgust i feel about the current situation and, so that someone else may also read my opinions.

I am disgusted by the agressive actions Lebanon and Palestines neighbour has taken. Sure, it may have been wrong to abduct those soldiers but the israeli response was not in anyway justified. The country of lebanon did not itself kidnap anyone, and yet it is recieving attacks on its infrastructure and civillians, who i would think, would be left out of this conflict.

I have strong feelings for Lebanon even though I am not Lebanese because before this violence I had read and seen much about it, and I know what a great and vibrant country it is. And to see it be attacked in such a heartless and ruthless manor is appaling. I cannot bear to see news reports about it but I still do in order not to shy away permently from what is happening. But that said, I know, as I am sure many people do, that the strong willed people of Lebanon and Palestine will rise above these horrible events and once again make their respective nations great.

I sincerely hope that God helps and protects the Lebanese and Palestinian people who have endured so much.
