Video: Gillermania III — Final Fury

posted at 12:07 am on July 29, 2006 by Allahpundit

He gave Greta Van Susteren a personal tour of the UN today. The video picks up with the two of them in front of the podium at the General Assembly, with Greta asking whether anyone ever walks out during anyone else’s speeches.

I don’t want to spoil the rest so that’s all I’ll say. Except for one thing:

Gillermania.

Gillerman. A bringer of moral clarity. Him and Bolton together would make one heck of a team. Give ‘em he

Give ‘em hell, Gillerman.

I like Gillerman, so I regret that his talents are wasted on the UN Assembly. The UN Assembly seems to have become little more than a theater production put on to preoccupy the United States, and one in which the U.S. government acquiesces partly because it’s so impressive to private U.S. citizens. Maybe, as long as the show goes on, Israel must have its own actor in the cast; however, an unfortunate side effect of the presence of this intelligent, articulate, grave, and likeable man in the UN Assembly is that it perpetuates the problem of so many Americans’ taking the UN Assembly seriously and according it moral authority and even governmental authority.

Why choose? I think it would make a much more powerful statement to puke and walk out.

JollyRoger on July 29, 2006 at 2:51 AM

That’s funny, JollyRoger.

His closing comment about Lebanon was a welcome addition, if only because it hints at an understanding that Lebanon didn’t (necessarily?) attack Israel.

But “puke or walk out” was good, too.

Patton:

Gillerman is inspiring in his clarity.

But I heard this morning on FNC from a representative of the Lebanese people, that 80% – 85% of the people of Lebanon support hizb’allah.

Think about that. The same percentage or higher of Israelis support the military destruction of hizb’allah. Sure seems like the people of Lebanon have chosen the side of the terrorists.

Israel must utterly destroy hizb’allah. Regardless of the ‘civilian’ casualties. That seems cruel, but to leave that critically important job undone will only mean greater and more difficult situations in the future.

Stop kicking this particular can down the road and finish the job, Israel. You will never have more support than you have right this instant.

Do. Not. Squander it.

What great camera work. When he started his longer exposition, the camera went off of Gretta entirely and focused in on him, completely capturing the moment. Biased reporting and work? You betcha. Gotta love it. It’s about time someone gave Israel a real voice.

If Hezbollah doesn’t wear uniforms, how can they squawk about ‘civilian casualties’? Here-I’ll make a ruling, as I have as much authority as Hezbollah:
“Israel-there are no cilivians left in Lebanon. Go to it, and may God Bless your efforts!”

It is so refreshing to hear Gillerman (and Bolton as well) speak the plain, simple truth in contrast to the pandering PC doublespeak we hear from most politicians these days.

speed647 on July 29, 2006 at 2:16 PM

Uniforms, civilians, hizbulsh*tah, … right.

What do you call a dead hizbullah fighter?

A CIVILIAN CASUALTY !!!

badaboom!! (no pun intended)

shooter on July 29, 2006 at 2:53 PM

Moral clarity indeed. Not to mention the willingness to call a spade a spade..or a terror sponsor a terror sponsor..take THAT Syria! Bravo Mr G!

labwrs on July 29, 2006 at 3:08 PM

Awesome… I saw this live and was hoping you’d capture it & post it for posterity! Links are being mailed out as I type this -

RD on July 29, 2006 at 6:35 PM

Gillerman should have given the Syrian ambassador the “George H.W. Bush” treatment and puked right in his lap. Then again, such an attack would give Syria future moral authority in the vomit wars…

Gillermania IV caught on the BBC… Dan the Man tears the broad from the BBC a new one (!)

techno_barbarian on July 29, 2006 at 11:37 AM

I agree with Techno.

Effectively, “hizb’allah” are all civilians. Therefore, all hizb’allah deaths are civilian deaths.

The people who support and abet hizb’allah are also civilians. They may not all be combatants, but that doesn’t mean they are not the enemy.

Hence, the idea that Israel must fight this war without killing civilians is absolute and utter non-sense.

The fact that Israel can only win by killing the enemy combatants is pretty much a given at this point. But this is based on the enemies adjenda to continue terrorizing Israel, not Israel’s agenda to defend.

The fact that the true innocents are all the people/children hizb’allah forces to act as human shields is also a given at this point. But there is no way for Israel to distinguish between the innocents being forced to abet hizb’allah and the guilty who abet willingly.

Lawrence on July 30, 2006 at 9:26 AM

That was awesome. I love quiet calm confidence.

The U.N. just must be the most surreal place to work.

Rightwingsparkle on July 30, 2006 at 4:52 PM

I don’t know how Gillerman & Bolton stand it.
