Outstanding! How about Jimmy Carter in the WaPo today? Hezbollah is winning the war of public opinion because of people like Jimmy… and the global media that’s all to willing to run with the stories that Hezbollah is feeding them. Nuts.

I would not accept it if George Bush authorized a cease fire in the war on terror. Success can only be made when these barbarians who put their wives and children in jeopardy to score political points are stopped. I suspect it will be easier to stop terrorists than it will be to stop the media liars.

Thanks for telling it like it is Michelle. This site and others are essential for those of us who want to know the truth about this war.

The Jew hatred which fuels this deception must be frighteningly enormous for there is no other reason for the press, the UN and other government officials to swallow and regurgitate this obvious muslim propaganda.

Sure their is Doc.
People like to imagine that they are “civilized”. Civilized people do not wage war. They do not let children suffer. Civilized people work to enlighten the unwashed masses.
The MSM, Jimmy Carter, the liberal left etc all like to feel civilized. They like to feel important and kind and understanding of those less fortunate then them(IE condescending. It is easier for them to beleive that the Noble Savages (muslims) are just misunderstood innocents being bullied by a cruel barbaric America and Isreal. If only these bullies were stopped then the innocent savages could be educated, and brought up to the utopian ideals of civilazation espoused by the MSM, Jimmy carter et al.

Of course these people ignore two facts:
1) Muslims are not “noble savages” they are religeous warriors fullfilling the word of their god, and will not stop.
2) America and Isreal are not the bullies the MSM so fervantly wish them to be.

But since when has cold hard facts interfered with what a liberal “feels” is right.

Michelle, once again you hit the nail on the head. No, you do not see any male jihadists in the death porn of Kana.

A comment by Sebastian on JW highlights another aspect (link in French, use Babblefish for translation) of this STAGED massacre. . . .

Upon closer inspection, the pictures of the Cana bombing suggests that hezbollah might have rigged the house to explode several hours later, in order to kill a load of handicapped kids.

An oberservant nurse in France watched the pictures closely and believes that many of the children who died were disabled.

The pictures are here http://www.france-echos.com/actualite.php?cle=9800

The article suggests that Hezbollah used the opportunity to get rid of their deformed children and pin the blame on the jews.

I’m utterly disgusted but not shocked. The ‘values’ and ‘morals’ (cough/spit) of Islamic society is something to be deeply, DEEPLY ASHAMED of.

Great Vent, Michelle. It’s so amazing that people will swallow the islamofascist PR hook, line, and sinker. Scary, actually.

StephC on August 1, 2006 at 11:32 AM

Did I miss that memo? Why am I supposed to hate Jews? Is it because they invented gefilte fish?

Haven’t watched the whole episode yet, but I just wanted to say I like M&M’s new mugshot on her normal site. Lookin’ good.

Everything that Michelle said about the unfairness of world coverage is absolutely true. However, this should not obscure the fact that Israel has badly botched the offensive. The war cannot be won from the air, although air strikes are a necessary complement to ground action. By not exterminating Hezbollah with ground forces, Israel has looked weak and by relying on airstrikes that will enevitably create Qanas, the window of opportunity for crushing the enemy before world opinion forces a ceasefire has been shortened. As of now, Israel is losing badly politically and not gaining much militarily.

The Bush Administration has to date handled the situation very well in resisting world opinion to buy more time for Israel to do what has to be done. It is up to Israel to deliver; its long-term survival depends on it.

I can’t decide for whom to have more contempt – Hezbollah “warriors” (who hide behind women and children) or their willing enablers in the media. It’s a real stumper.

Either way, as far as I’m concerned, they are BOTH guilty of war crimes.

thirteen28 on August 1, 2006 at 1:02 PM

Excellent vent!

I agree it is sad, the left and media embrace terrorism and cowards hiding behind women and children and place false blame on Israel defending itself.

Oh yeah! Check this out!

Play possum and the ultimate victim. A Medinan technique perfected by Mohammad when he started converting the Bedouin Arabs to his despicable religion. Islamists don’t even flinch when killing their own to gain propaganda advantage like what is most likely the case in Qana. Handicap children and the elderly are no use to them.

Bite on the bait and Hizb’Allah will apply the Meccan technique (massacre the infidels) to reach their goal of wiping Israel off the face of the earth.

Thank you Hot Air for exposing this islamist taqquiya. The call to arms not only for WW 3 but the New Crusades is sounded!

Without going too far back in time, we can thank Ho Chi Minh and General Vo Nguyen Giap, in league with the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (John Kerry), aided and abetted by Walter Cronkite. Yasser Arafat witnessed that PR success and after he was thrown out of Jordan, he sent his PLO minions to study Ho Chi Minh’s and Giap’s PR playbook. Shortly thereafter, Arafat, accessorized with olive branch and pistol, showed up at the UN, as a stateless head of state, and addressed the swooning “turtles” in that “bay.” The rest, as they say, is history. To refuse to learn from it is deadly.

What is the best type of foe in the world? A moral one.

You can kick him in the nuts, poke him in the eye, bite, spit, gouge, and use every dirty trick in the book plus any new ones you can think of. And while you are doing all this he will continue to fight you “by the rules”.

Wyrd on August 1, 2006 at 3:18 PM

I’m sorry, is Mrs Malkin suggesting that Hezbollah is responsible for the massacre at Qana? Arguing that they hide amongst civilians, well, ok. But that they actually did the killing, is that what she just “vented”? Good Jesus, god almighty, now I’ve truly heard it all on this issue!

Because, of course, those humanitarians that make up Hezbollah would never think of doing such a thing (killing civilians) for propaganda purposes, now would they?

Photo defines tragedy . . .

Compare the picture of OKC fire fighter Capt. Chris Fields cradling (not intentionally displaying)little Baylee Almon and those staged by the Hizballah sanctioned press. After the blast, Baylee is covered in blood and dust and is still limp.

Contrast the Hizballah “rescue worker” in the green helmet (familiar from previous war porn episodes)clearly ‘displaying’ this child with dangling binky.

Staging in Kana? If it looks like a duck, waddles like a duck etc. . . . The time stamps on photos, the need for the disturbingly familiar green helmet to ‘DISPLAY’ the dead child – no visible blood, no dead Hezbollah terrorists – just the carnage of Hezbollah’s chosen shahids . ..disposable handicapped children and barren women . Kana is worthy of entry into the Pallywood journals of staged fiction. Islam . . .radical or fundamentalist is the most heinous abomination ever inflicted on mankind.

heroyalwhyness on August 1, 2006 at 7:24 PM

This brings to mind an episode long long ago before 911 but in the era of Lockerby. A British subject female had an islamist boyfriend who gave her a suitcase to carry with her on her plane trip.

Boyfriend had set up his non-muslim girlfriend with a bomb. His pregnant non muslim girlfriend. The suitcase was discovered. That guy was cold pure evil. The girlfriend was a stone fool who got lucky

entagor on August 1, 2006 at 7:33 PM

I found the story. There was a Syrian connection.

entagor on August 1, 2006 at 7:39 PM

Islam . . .radical or fundamentalist is the most heinous abomination ever inflicted on mankind.

And with 1.5 billion adherents today, this abomination is bigger than its ever been. Perilous times indeed. 2 Tim 3:1

speed647 on August 1, 2006 at 10:17 PM

I haven’t posted to let you know that I have thoroughly enjoyed every single one of your vents…wouldn’t miss ‘em.

Keep up the good work, please. It is needed more now that ever before.

sharinlite on August 1, 2006 at 10:17 PM

One wonders why Israel bothers to remain a member of the UN. It’s not like the UN ever takes their side.
