So Surreal!

Latest pictures came out on TV. It's so surreal and extremely emotional. This is Beirut, Beirut wounded and hurt.

An entire portion of the airport highway (taree2 il matar) is destroyed.

There is news of more severe hits on the southern suburbs of Beirut, il-Dahyeh. So far, three have died and more than 20 are wounded. LBC claims that most of the hits in il-Dahyeh targeted Hizbullah's security area. Hizbullah's security apparatus has cordoned off the area, so no video footage there.

Israeli planes hit the Mar Mikhail area, a heavily-populated area of Beirut.

Al-Jiyyeh electricity station was hit. Smoke has filled the air.

Beirut 3am tibkee....maksoor khatirha....

Update: Footage of il-Mdairij bridge on the Damascus-Beirut highway is being shown on LBC. The bridge is hit severely. No cars can pass through. This is close to our summer house.

Update - 7:20AM (Lebanon's time): The wounded toll has risen to 55.

Update - 7:26 (Lebanon's time): Fellow blogger Lazarus has posted the following entries with disheartening pictures of what the Israeli attacks left behind. Click here and here.

Update - 7:29: Israeli warships are hitting the entrance to the city of Saida, stopping many from entering or exiting the city.

Update - 11:00AM (Lebanon's time): After snoozing for only two hours, more has happened. Parts of Beirut our out of electricity. Israeli warships have imposed a sea blockage on the city of Tripoli in the north (where it has always been believed to be the safest place from Israeli incursions). Israeli planes shelled a base of the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine - General Command, 2 kilometers away from the Syrian border. Israeli Foreign Minister threatened to attack Syria. And an Israeli Minister threatened to eliminate Hizbullah leader Sayyid Nasrallah.

This is what's out there so far. Some news portals are inaccessible due to the amount of people logging on to the site at once. Will update later.

Update - 11:10AM: The International Airport is being hit yet again.

Update - 11:15AM: Got access to the news portal that was inaccessible. Okay, Hammana was raided by Israeli planes during the early morning hours. 10 Israeli warships are heading from Saida to Beirut right now. Cell phone lines have been cut in the Bekaa and the Jabal. Electricity has been cut all over the country. Israeli warships hit the Jiyyeh electricity grid a couple more times. Israeli raids over several towns in the south. PM Seniora has made an urgent phone call to State Secretary Rice.

Update - 11:20AM: il-Dahyeh is being severely hit. Planes have been transferred from Beirut Airport to Amman, Jordan.

Don't pay attention to the insults. One cannot control the people that comment on blogs, or their maturity level when voicing opinions in a public forum.

Most of us truly appreciate your effort in keeping this blog up-to-date. Very often in the last 48 hours, this blog and some of the comments were the only source of information about the events.

Instead of written support for the lebanese population, all I am seeing from most of you are bashing posts.. Hizbollahs are this, and Israelis are that. This sort of behaviour on a blog doesn't end up anywhere, except for people being abusive and sending out hatred towards other posters and vice versa.

If you cannot be intelligent enough to post intelligent critisism, then it is best not to post at all. I am not being controlling over what you should be saying, but it seems that bashing each other right now is totally pointless and creates nothing but stress.

I give spiritual support to those that are affected in Lebanon, and I would like to say on behalf of those that feel the same, stay safe.

>>>I hope that some day in the future the updates will be about Israel helping rebuild what has been destroyed.

I hope so too. But that future is only possible in a world where Hisbollah isn't firing rockets into Israel. You Lebanese should be helping Israel rid Lebanon of Hisbollah. There would be no shame in that. It's the rational thing to do. Hisbollah is dragging you down a rat hole.

Hey Israeli anon 1:Am,

What, are you playing smart-ass psychologist with us now? What do you think we are kids?

We know who hizballah is, but we know better who you are: fu*king morons without a grain of humanity in them. Since your theft of Palestine you have used every trick in the book, every cruel means,every wanton violence to achieve your ends. The holocaust taught you nothing. You use it cheaply to illicit over-spent sympathy and to intimidate any voice who criticizes you.

You are powerful now. Just do not think you can lecture us down. We are aware, and we see who you are. Go ahead drop your bombs; kill away; that's what you're good at. Every good thing comes to an end, and when that end is yours all you are doing now will not be forgotten.

or you could just stop f*cking with the Israelis and maybe they'd leave you alone? Just a thought.

Honestly I can say, if you let the scum take over your neighborhood your property values are going tank. Welcome to the bottom.

Lebanon used to be a wonderful place. It is headed for a 900 AD extreme makeover with toxic waste and a frightened population.

This is a good example of why you should fight now instead of fighting later. Not fighting in the nineteen seventies only sealed the fate for those who did not flee to the U.S.A. in 1972.

I hope this World War in the Middle East is swift, bitter and decisive.

Israeli said...

I am so sorry that you have to go through this. It is not our intent to hurt innocent Lebanese. Israeli’s have a lot of respect for the Lebanese people, we really do. However, you need to understand that we in Israel are FUMING over what Hezbollah did. For every action there is a reaction. Please stay safe.

Anonymous said...

This just reminds me of the civil rights movement in 1940s and 50s America. Things were real bad. There were anti-black American riots and lynchings. People wanted to do something against the evil that infested the establishment but they felt they were powerless, or some like some Hezbollah sympathizers, they insisted on defending the status quo and tradition from percieved attacks by outsiders that came to the racist American South from the progressive Northern United States. It took the black Americans and their white progressive American brothers and sisters another decade to realize real change does come from the grassroots, ground up confrontation with evil.

those are nice sounding words, but peace only comes when all sides want it. Clearly Iran, and it's puppet Hisbollah, do not. So what do you suggest be done about them? The true enemy of Lebanon is Iran and Hisbollah and Syria, not Israel. Israel just wants to be left alone.

I have never felt as touched by images of destruction before I saw images from Lebanon. I sincerely hope that a quick solution could be found and the Lebanese people shouldn't have to suffer for the mistakes of the few. I condemn the actions of both Israel and Hizbollah but the magnitude of Israels retaliation is incomprehensible to me.

For Carlos and all those who think the Lebanese should kick Hizbollah out I want to emphasize that the LAPDs budget is 1.2 billion dollars as opposed to the Lebanese military budget of 540 million dollars.

I guess it's a good thing Lebanon spent billion on developing tourism and infrastructure, and LET AN EXTREMIST MILITIA RUN THEIR SOUTHER BORDER WITH A NEIGHBOR THAT DOESN'T LIKE BEING ATTACKED.

When you kicked Syria out, and decided to DISCUSS the armament of "Allah's Party", you sealed your fate. Here's a hint for the future: When you hear about a group that has the name Allah in its name, remember who Allah is to them.

As an Israeli I would like to appologize for any unnecessary damage. We simply have no choice but to defend ourselves.
Six years have passed since we completely withdrew from southern Lebanon complying with all the UN dmands. Two years have passed since the UN passed a resolution calling for the dismanteling of the Iranian / Syrian militia occupying south Lebanon (which the Lebaneese government declared it will ignore). Yet, we are under constant attack - the threat of soldiers being kindnaped from withing Israel and of missiles and rockets on our norhtern cities has not stopped for a single day. Our farmers cannot, for the past six years, cultivate their fields without fear of attack by Lebanese militia members.
Guys - this is not our faults. Trust me that we have much better things to do than go on military reserve duty (we work and study and we have families we want to be with) BUT! we will not leave our soldiers behind not will we releas people who came into our country and murdered our people. Even if we will have to let ourselves be dragged to war.

"As an Israeli I would like to appologize for any unnecessary damage"
Much appreciated
"We simply have no choice but to defend ourselves"
I understand, but I am not sure what kind of news you are getting in Israel, but we are under a naval and air blockade, our airport is being bombed, and there are many many many civilian roads and bridges being bombed and cut off as well. This is not self defence, this is taking out against a people.
" BUT! we will not leave our soldiers behind not will we releas people who came into our country and murdered our people. Even if we will have to let ourselves be dragged to war. "

It saddens me to see that you would rather go to war and cause the deaths and injuries of countless people, foment hatred across a border that has enough of it already, because you are too proud to release prisoners... Well guess what, after your government and army has destroyed my country, and after this has settled down, Israel will negotiate for its two soldiers...
Sad state of affairs, but we have to break the cycle, and put the blame where it belongs, which is on both sides of the border. None of us are infallible, and violence will only lead to more violence as it has for the past 60 yrs...

As much as understand your sufferings and grievancies i support the Israeli response. And your reaction in general is nothing more than a usual arab whining and pointless rhetoric. Lebanon is your country and yet you let Hizbullah to control a great parts of it and run their own agenda that doesn't serve any of the Lebanese goals? Its your country so how can you are allowing this to happen? Why don't you stand united and fight against Hizbullah and your corrupt and opportunistic government officials? You need badly to purge your country of these foreign power proxies and terrorists yet the only thing you do is to write some pointless Internet diaries. Organise yourself, take on arms and contact some Western intelligence agencies, i am sure NATO for example would be only happy to assist your in your fight against Hizbullah. But as long as the primary thing you care is your personal and your extended family's safety and convience and put these concerns way above the concerns for a truly democratic Lebanese society that doesn't tolerate the likes of Hizbullah you'll never end the spiral of mindless violence. If you die of Israeli bomb you become another count in statistic nobody in the world gives a shit about, but if die fighting Hizbullah you have a chance of becoming a hero or at least guaranteeing your children a better future.
So really i could not hold a sympathy for your civilian Lebanese because you are totally earned what has come to you by your inaction.

To all those in support of Israel's "self defence" against Lebanon (and in support of Hizballah actions against Israeli civilians, of which there aren't many on this forum):

Congratulations, through tortuous argumentation many of you have just provided the moral justification for suicide bombing!

It goes like this: An area is being attacked (say West Bank or Israel) by a military unit (say IDF or Hizballah), then those armed in the area under attack (say Hamas/Fatah/Jihad or IDF) have the right, in order to defend themselves, to indiscriminately target civilians on the opposite side causing terror and casualties among them. It appears to me that in "defending yourself" you come to resemble more and more your enemies.

For that you win... a washing machine! Keep your clothes spotlessly clean of the innocent blood you drown yourselves into each time you justify terrorist attacks against civilians and civilian infrastrucutre (both against the Geneva convention by the way). Because of your continuing support of endless cycles of violence you don't only have Lebanese and Paletinian blood on your hands, but also Israeli.

For a visual illustration of that fascinating process of "self defence":

Suha,

There are other voices. I think ANY attack on civilians cannot be justified. The voices I hear in Israel "If the children of Nahariya won't sleep, so will the children of Beirut" are barbaric and inhumane.

I do think Israel has the right to defend itself. But killing the innocent is not the way. Sadly, I don't see this ending soon. I fear it will take the life of many more people on both sides. Reports are that the IDF will start bombing Dahiya pretty soon. HA will attack Haifa, were I live, soon after. I have no idea how to stop this. It is very frustrating.

from my office near hotel dieu, i can see dark smoke billowing very rapidly above the airport. i take that to mean the fires are still raging.

my boss (who is very well connected) tells me that further strikes in bey will probably be limited to the southern suburbs. if hezbollah retaliates, the most likely central beirut target is biel.

the turkish ambassador to lebanon told a friend of mine that beirut may be fine, but the roads to the syrian border in the north will be targeted (and cut off) soon. if you want to get out without being evacuated, go now. apparently, he feels its possible that the whole country will end up sealed for a few months. as someone who'd rather be stuck in lebanon than stuck outside, i'm staying, but you all should take this into consideration.

a mustaqbal source informs me that the party is hoping to somehow convince hezbollah to turn the soldiers over to the govt. seems unlikely, but just fyi.

that's all i know for the time being.

Lebanon does not deserve to be called a nation state if they cannot control their own internal affairs. They are no better than a collection of merchants and shopkeepers living in fear of the mafia. Hisbollah is your mafia. And Israel is the cops. Shopkeepers can either help, or stay out of the way.

Is this just an excuse, on Hezbollah’s part, to call for Syria’s help in Lebanon? Here are some other reasons for Hezbollah’s aggression. It’s clear Iran and Syria don’t want a free and independent Lebanon. Hezbollah needs to be taken out either by internal or external means.

Anonymous said...

Hezbollah can only be taken out by internal means. Hopefully outside pressure will give them the Lebanese people the will to do so.

Anonymous said...

Take it with a grain of salt.....but an American cable news network is reporting that Mr. Nasrallah of Hezbollah is believed to be in one of the buildings Israel just attacked. It's collapsed with him allegedly in it.

Since he seems to be the person that directed Hezbollah to invade Israel (probably on orders from Syria and Iran), I personally hope he's in the building with just his fellow Hezbollah supporters. Perhaps the next person to lead Hezbollah in Lebanon will think twice about unilaterally plunging the country into war by attacking another nation.

dear suha

what you wrote about israel resembeling the terrorist groups is entirely incorect.
first of all you have the preassumption that israel's defense force targets the innocent civilians. thats a lie.
thats what differ an army from a terrorsit organization.
the IDF defends the civilians inside israel by attacking terrorist groups like hamas and hizbolah. these two are terrorist organizations because one of thier goals is to kill innocent civilians in order to instigate and panic the rival country's population.
the problem is they are still not as strong as israel's army so they attack from withtin cities, houses and neighberhoods...thats why israel sometimes hurt innocent civilians, its because hamas, hizbolah and other terrorist groups attack from civilian houses.....garila warfare of sorts.

and by the way in what aspect did hizbolah defend the population of lebanon when it kidnaped the israeli soldiers?

and for the one who asked about samir kuntar, the first inline of prisoners hizbolah wants israel to free. he penetrated israel and murdered a four year girl by smashing her head to bits with the blunt side of his rifle. he also murderd her father.

and this is the guy which hizbolah wants to be freed first and foremost...indeed a noble and rightous man....

Sorry to say it, but Lebanon, Syria and most importantly Iran brought this on themselves. The Arab countries do not want Israel to exist so we must destroy you. What do you expect? I am just profoundly sorry Israel is holding back. They are simply too respectful of life in this situation. If I was "kimg" Beruit would be given 24 hours to evacuate ann then turned to dust. Then ask the enemy if they wish to surrender and no longer attack Israel. If they say no, then destroy Damasucs, and so on. But Israel is too nice - but hopefully that will change and soon I hope!
I say to Israel's enemies: SURRENDER AND LIVE IN PEACE WITH ISRAEL OR DIE - YOUR CHOICE!

Hizballah sub-contracts Palestinian launch squads, uses Christian villages as human shields

Palestinian Jihad Islami, Ahmed Jibril’s PFLP-General Command and Palestinian crime gangs based in S. Lebanon’s Burj Shimali east of Tyre are leading the rocket offensive against Nahariya and coastal Galilee. Early Wednesday, an Israeli air raid struck a village house in this sector east of Tyre, causing 10 deaths, according to Lebanese officials.

the rocket fire against the eastern town of Safed emanates from the Maronite Christian village of Rumeish, while the Galilee panhandle villages and the town of Kiryat Shemona are being attacked from the Christian villages of Marjayoun and Kleia in central-south Lebanon. One difficulty in halting Hizballah’s rocket barrage in the east has been Israel’s reluctance to attack Christian targets, except for pinpointing launch teams. Israeli negotiators are in contact with the village heads on terms for their evacuation so that Hizballah sites can be smashed.

Hizballah is using Lebanese Christians as human shields for its attacks and their towns and villages as supply centers to pump ordnance to the launch teams in forward positions. The Israeli air force therefore attacked Hizballah targets sheltering near the Maronite town of Zahleh Tuesday and is taking out every container truck heading west from the Beqaa Valley on the Syrian border. Eighteen such trucks were blown up Tuesday.

One thing that is never spoken about when it comes to the issue of Kuntar, was the two eye witnesses who witnessed Kuntar killing little Einat. Their personal account was as follows:

"Me and my friend were at the beach at Naharya that day, just relaxing, it was dark and we could hear police sirens all around. We then heard a gun shot, so we rushed over to see what happened. We coincidentally had a pair of binoculars that day, what we saw a man (Samir Kuntar)struggling and drowning another man(that man was Danny Haran) in the sea, while a little girl was standing a couple of feet away and crying. We were planning how we could try to sneak up and approach to save them, because after all we would have to use alot of caution because we saw the terrorist carrying a rifle. Moments later, the terrorist (Kuntar) turned his attention towards the frightened little 4-year old. He took his rifle and then swung it across the little toddler's head, knocking her to the ground. As we watched as little Einat was knocked to the ground, we could hear her screaming and crying hysterically "mommy daddy help me," while thrashing her little legs around in the sand. The terrorist (Kuntar) then dragged the little toddler a couple of feet to the closest rock he could find, this was while she was crying and screaming. Kuntar, then laid her head down on a rock, with the intention of crushing it with the butt of his rifle. We could see the little toddler instinctively covering her head with her little arms, Kuntar struggled with her until he finally managed to clear her arms out of the way so that he could aim for the head, and then he proceeded on beating her over and over with the butt of his rifle and we could hear her little cries faded away as she was knocked into unconsciousness. Then, he beat her several more times for a couple of minutes more until police came. But it was too late because she was already dead."

According to medical examiners; "the little 4 year old put up a mighty struggle, she did receive several blows to her head until she died. Before Einat became unconcious blood rushed out of her ears. And to ensure she was dead, Kuntar continued on beating her over the head, as hard as he could, several more times until her skull was crushed and she was dead."
