What About That UN Station in Lebanon?
A considerable hullabaloo is ongoing over the attack by Israel on a UN station located in the war zone in Lebanon. It’s entirely possible that this was an accident under the fog of war, but perhaps not many people understand the anti-Israel, anti-Semitic stance of UN employed personnel now and over the years. What else would explain Kofi Annan’s immediate statement, without investigation, that this was a deliberate act? Many people also do not understand that UN personnel are actively attempting right now to undermine the Israeli defense initiative into Hezbollah-controlled areas of Lebanon.
For example, Israel’s preparation of the battlefield included the destruction of roads, bridges and airfields that would permit the resupply of missiles and other arms to Hezbollah, but, according to the UN’s own website, UN personnel are rebuilding these same roads:
“UNIFIL is still facing serious restrictions in its freedom of movement due to the ongoing hostilities and the extensive destruction of roads and bridges throughout the area of operation. Yesterday, a UNIFIL engineering contingent from China managed to do some repairs on a key road artery between Tyre and Naqoura, and the road is now usable for traffic. However, more road destruction was reported in various areas in the south.”
I might also continue to point out to those on the left who still don’t seem to get it, that these last attacks on Israel by Hamas and Hezbollah are nothing new. Thanks to Resa LaRu Kirkland, of Newsback.com, we are reminded of promises made and curses uttered by these same murderous fanatics 40 years ago:

"As of today, there no longer exists an international emergency force to protect Israel. We shall exercise patience no more. We shall not complain any more to the UN about Israel. The sole method we shall apply against Israel is total war, which will result in the extermination of Zionist existence.
"Our forces are now entirely ready not only to repulse the aggression, but to initiate the act of liberation itself, and to explode the Zionist presence in the Arab homeland. The Syrian army, with its finger on the trigger, is united... I, as a military man, believe that the time has come to enter into a battle of annihilation.
"The armies of Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon are poised on the borders of Israel...to face the challenge, while standing behind us are the armies of Iraq, Algeria, Kuwait, Sudan and the whole Arab nation. This act will astound the world. Today they will know that the Arabs are arranged for battle, the critical hour has arrived. We have reached the stage of serious action and not declarations.
"The existence of Israel is an error which must be rectified. This is our opportunity to wipe out the ignominy which has been with us since 1948. Our goal is clear -- to wipe Israel off the map."--
Relax, people, and let Israel continue to defend itself with our help. The only thing new about this is that the American public, at least, seems to understand that Israel has done everything in its power to live in peace with its neighbors, and, critically, several Arab nations seem to have withdrawn their support for Hezbollah to destroy Israel. We don't want a cease-fire that will only allow Hezbollah to rearm itself. We want the Israelis to clean out these fanatics if they can. As has been the case since the beginning of time, the only way true peace is ever achieved is to kill enough of your enemy so he surrenders.
