In our topsy-turvy world in which the good guys are characterized as evil, while evil thugs are portrayed as merely political militants, the tragedy in the Lebanese town of Qana serves as an object lesson for anyone who really believes we will triumph over the Islamofascists.
In a televised address, Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said: "Out of respect for the souls of our innocent martyrs and the remains of our children buried under the rubble of Qana, we scream out to our fellow Lebanese and to other Arab brothers and to the whole world to stand united in the face of the Israeli war criminals."
Perhaps when the Lebanese PM calms down someone will sit down with him like a Dutch uncle and explain a few things. While an Israeli bomb was the instrument of death for those poor Lebanese victims, it was Prime Minister Siniora's inaction that killed those children.
He now cries for justice, but where were his cries for help to rid his country of the Islamic savages known as Hezbollah. It is difficult to fathom that in the years following the Israeli withdrawal from southern Lebanon, no one in the Lebanese government saw rockets, missiles, weapons, and military equipment traveling to the Hezbollah strongholds from Iran and Syria.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said "what happened in Qana is an ugly massacre. It is a new Israeli crime that it be immediately stopped for the protection of civilian life." Abbas is another leader who attempted to play footsies with the Islamic radicals in the Palestinian territory.
Syrian President Bashar Assad called Lebanese President Emile Lahoud and "expressed his shock and sorrow over the ugly massacre Israel has committed today against the innocent civilians in Qana that clearly reflect the barbarism of this aggressive entity and the state-terrorism it practices before the eyes and the ears of the world." Assad, a brutal dictator who left mass graves behind in Lebanon, is but one of the architects of the current unrest existing today in the Middle East. Yet American newspapers print the words of these Islamofascist enablers as if they are really legitimate heads of state. It's a farce.
In Paris, French President Jacques Chirac's office said "the president learned with consternation about the violent act which cost the life of numerous innocent victims, including woman and children in Qana."
"France condemns this unjustifiable action which shows more than ever the need to reach an immediate cease-fire without which other tragedies can only be repeated."
These leaders condemning Israel fail to see the blood on their own hands. They have once again banded together against Israel -- Chirac, the anti-Semite, and his comrades in the Middle East.
And finally, Kofi Annan Secretary General of the useless United Nations, condemned Israel. Of course, UN condemnation of Israel isn't what it used to be. The UN condemned Israel at the drop of a hat on many occasions. And where are the demands for hearings in congress and investigations regarding the 2,000 UN peacekeepers who've been in Lebanon all these years. What have they been doing? Yes, the United Nations is useless and their uselessness killed 34 children in Lebanon.
But the true killer of those civilians -- including the children -- is radical Islam. It is a known tactic of Islamofascists to use innocent civilians as cannon fodder for their cause. They surround themselves with the innocent, attack their prey, and then wait for the retaliation, hoping for civilian casualties that the TV cameras will project into living rooms around the globe.
The Israelis were setup by these terrorists. And most of the members of the news media know they were setup. Instead of revealing the truth, they find it within their political and professional self-interest to play the terrorists' game.
The United States and Israel are fighting the same enemy. Islamofascism. The battles are raging throughout the world: Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Lebanon, and other regions. Yet, without support -- not lip service, but true support -- it just may be in the cards that we'll be defeated; not on the battlefield, but in front of our television sets.
Who killed the children of Qana?
July 31st, 2006
The New York Times has announced that the entire world is outraged at Israels behavior in bombing Qana. So it must be true. Or is it?
Nothing is more heartrending than the suffering of children. Emotionally we all want to put the blame on the bombs, the bombers, and those who ordered the bombing. And yet that is obviously a twisted perversion of reality. Because it is the explicit policy of Islamist terror groups to hide behind children, shooting missiles at Israeli civilians all the time. The gains to the terrorists are enormous. Israelis inevitably feel guilty about the unwanted casualties, but they dont know what else to do in the face of constant attacks on their own children at home. The Muslim masses are predictably outraged because they only hear one side of the story. And the Leftist media continue to lie- there is no other word for it- about who is choosing to expose children to danger.
So the seeds are planted from the beginning. The BBC and the New York Times have labeled the black hats and the white hats for years and years. We are seeing just another replay of Leftist propaganda since Stalin- who was the innocent victim of Western aggression until decades after his death, when a few old Lefties sheepishly admitted his crimes. Communism killed some 100 million innocents in the 20th century, according to the authoritative Black Book of Communism (Livre Noire du Communism in the original French).
And yet, the most famous intellectuals of the 20th century served this murderous ideology. We are simply seeing a repeat today, with the usual suspects on the Left siding with Islamic fascism just as they took sides with the Leftist fascism of Stalin and Mao.
The Qana story is just a replay of Abu Ghraib, the myth that Saddam had no WMDs, the Wilson-Plame bedroom farce, and on and on. It has just become a kind of reflex of the Left: Israel and the United States are always wrong. Everything is set up for the same mendacious narrative.
Hezbollah killed the children of Qana, just as it killed the children of Haifa. Hezbollah is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his fellow criminals of the mullahcracy in Tehran, who created the Hezbo monster with malice aforethought to wipe Israel off the map. Theres no mystery here. They are dead serious about a second genocide against the Jews of Israel. There has never been any effort to lie about it on the part of the Khomeini cult in Tehran. So we know who is responsible.
And yet, the liberal media always blame the good guys. There is something twisted and perverse about the media narrative, some sense of delight in enabling the overt malice of the Islamofascists. Because the media know. They know whats going on. They are just playing dumb, trying to turn their easily-led audiences against those they hate the most. The media take an almost sexual delight in facilitating the murderous malice of Nasrallah and Ahmadinejad. In the calculus of moral responsibility, the New York Times and its ilk must therefore be held to blame in equal measure with the aggressor. If it bleeds, it leads, is their working slogan, and it is hard to evade the thought that the biggest journalists and editors have learned to enjoy that game, that sense of importance, that arrogation of power. They are co-conspirators in the slaughter of innocents.
The Leftist media will now tell us who won in Lebanon. They know, because they make the rules. When they announce that Israel lost, a frisson of delight will shiver the Left around the world. Muslims will hand out candy in the streets. And the world will become much more dangerous.
Yet our permanent Ruling Class will cling to its power, sneering at time-serving politicians with undisguised contempt. When George Bush and Condi Rice are history, Pinch Sulzberger and the BBC think they will still be there, exercising their monopoly on permissible thinking in the world.
Yet everybody knows that if Hezbollah did not exist there would be a solid peace between Israel and Lebanon, just as there is between Israel and Jordan. Both countries would thrive on peace, just as both are suffering today.
There are only two obstacles to a true and lasting peace: Tehran and the worldwide Left. Both must be defeated, if children on all sides are to live and thrive, and enjoy normal lives in the Middle East.
