Ansvaret ligger hos Hizbollah

Ralph Kinney Bennett från TCS har skrivit bra artikel om hur Hizbollah avsiktligen gömmer sig bland civila för att orsaka så många civilas död som möjligt:

Maybe, as this terrible business in Lebanon unfolds, we’ll finally get it:

Guerrillas like to hide behind civilians.

Muslim guerrillas take it a step further: ”Civilians” are a weapon to them — as much a part of the fight as the AK-47 or RPG they carry.

Those who have visited any Hezbollah installation in Lebanon over the years always remark on the fact that there are families, women and children, in and around the place. ”Secret” bases are usually hidden in plain site. Houses or apartment buildings become weapons storage or even operations centers. An innocent shed or garage may contain a Toyota or a missile launcher.

Seldom, if ever, has a guerrilla movement been able to so openly and exquisitely weave itself into the fabric of a society as Hezbollah has done in Lebanon.

If the civilians in and around what are in effect operational bases happen to be of Hezbollah’s own brand of Islam they automatically become a part of the ”sacrificial,” suicidal equation. Often without choice or foreknowledge, they die an ”honorable” death in the battle against infidels or apostates.

Trots detta gör Israel allt vad de kan för att minimera de civila dödsoffren i Libanon, även om det innebär att kriget blir utdraget, vilket medför att fler och fler oskyldiga israeler kommer att dödas:

Suffice it to say the Israeli bombing operations are not indiscriminate. The targets, even those in downtown Beirut, are from painstakingly prepared lists compiled over years of watching the Hezbollah military buildup. The IDF is making often sacrificial efforts to pinpoint known Hezbollah installations and use precision guided weapons. They are making mistakes, yes, and they are probably victims from time to time of Hezbollah efforts to purposely mislead them into bombing completely innocent buildings.

Bennett konstaterar, helt riktigt, att ansvaret för de oskyldiga offren i denna konflikt, ligger hos Hizbollah:

However, these mangled bodies and wailing women with arms outstretched do provide an immense propaganda payoff, especially in the Western ”crusader” media — which still places a quaint value on human life . . . Meanwhile, the headlines are filled with the shedding of blood, some innocent, some not so obviously innocent. But all the blood of this terrible struggle is on the hands of Hezbollah. As they have grown tactically and operationally wise in their hatred, they have shown more fully their utter disregard for human life. They have calculated the bloody effect of what they and their mentors in Tehran and Damascus have started.

Om bara fler av våra politiker kunde inse detta, då skulle de kanske sluta kräva omoralisk ”återhållsamhet” av Israel.

  1. En artikel från YnetNews|Opinion av Alex Fishman:

    ”…first of all must ask ourselves some profound questions. We must not have mercy. We must not be nice. …Once it had become clear that Hizbullah members are hiding in the Maroun al-Ras village and in the nature surrounding it, under the ground, waiting for the IDF’s ground forces coming toward them and ready to sacrifice themselves in fighting, the entire area should have burst into flames. Fire from the air and from the ground. This village should have been leveled.”

  2. Hizbollahs kamp mot Israel stöds av 87% av befolkningen i Libanon,ett stöd som självfallet är som starkast bland muslimerna (men lite förvånande så finns det även bland kristna och druser en förkrossande majoritet för Hizbollah).

    Det är lite svårt då att motivera varför Israel ska visa återhållsamhet och genomföra striderna på ett sätt där man offrar egna soldater för att minimera förluster bland civila som nästan alla stödjer Hizbollah.
