I was reading a prominent letter in this morning's Irish Independent (subs required) and I was struck by the seething anti-Israeli sentiment behind it. It is a point which ATW visitor Felix Quigley picks up on, and I wish to reinforce the validity of his argument here.
Here are a few excerpts...
Could you tell me if the new UN force (which has agreed not to use force..DV) going to Lebanon is sanctioned to defend themselves against the Israelis?
I have read that the new UN force will be allowed to disarm Hizbollah (Must be reading the wrong papers, pal, Kofi Annan has made it clear that the UN force will NOT disarm Israel..DV) but nothing about the Israelis in the border zone.
Clearly this is an important issue as it was the Israelis, not Hezbollah that killed four UN peacekeepers and wounded others during the conflict. (Those would be the four UN peacekeeprs whose base was being used by nearby Hezbolloh terrorists to provide space to launch rockets into Israel. DV)
Israel has continued to attack Reuters (Lie) and the Red Cross (Lie) marked vehicles over the past few days, so it is Israel that we should be most concerned about. (Yes, that is quite right but only if we don't think that Iranian backed Hezbo stormtroopers roaming Lebanon is a problem. DV)
It drones on in this whiny tone until the end which is a tour de (un)force
The last person to demand UN inspections of Israel's nuclear facilities at Dimona was John F Kennedy in 1963. Three months later, he was assassinated! (Ah - so it was the Joooos who killed John, I see) Who is regulating the trigger happy nuclear state of Israel?
Now, I'm not sure if Gavin is the President of the Clontarf chapter of the Hezbollah fan club, but his stunning ignorance of Middle East affairs must appeal to the letters editor of the Irish Independent. I wonder if a letter pointing out that the UN is corrupt, that Lebanon colludes with Hezbollah to please the puppet masters in Syria and Tehran, that the MSM's anti-Israeli bias has been shockingly exposed by new media, and that Israel must return and finish Hezbollah off would get equal status?
