It Finally Breaks…Lebanese Protests Erupt Against the Planned Hezbollah Takeover

Posted by avideditor on January 25, 2011

It looks like the Jihadis are trying to take over Lebanon.
From http://holgerawakens.blogspot.com/2011/01/it-finally-breakslebanese-protests.html

It was mostly the Sunni Muslims of Lebanon that let loose today in Lebanon in a fit of rage over the continued move by Hezbollah to take over Lebanon…which culminated with Hezbollah’s nominee for Prime Minister Najib Mikati garnering more parliamentary votes than the present Prime Minister. Hezbollah has named their puppet leader, a former Prime Minister, and he won by 8 more votes – the news did not go over well with Sunnis and I’m sure it didn’t go over well with Christians and Druze, either.

Jihadis are taking over Lebanon

Posted by avideditor on January 25, 2011

It seems as if the Jihadis are taking over Lebanon

 

\BEIRUT – The Shiite armed movement Hezbollah cobbled together enough support Monday to appoint Lebanon’s next prime minister, effectively ending nearly six years of rule by Western-backed leaders and prompting the United States to warn it could cut off aid to this key Arab nation.

The apparent strength of Hezbollah marked an important political achievement for the group. It also signaled what appeared to be a significant shift for the country, away from alliances with the United States and Saudi Arabia, and toward Iran and Syria, which support Hezbollah.

In Washington, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said the United States “would have great concerns about a government within which Hezbollah plays a leading role.”

The United States considers Hezbollah a terrorist organization. A prominent government role for the group could compel the U.S. government to list Lebanon as a terrorist state. That designation would carry with it the automatic suspension of aid, a possibility that Crowley acknowledged. The United States has sent about $1.2 billion in economic and military assistance to Lebanon in the past five years, and the Obama administration has requested $246 million more this year.

Hezbollah and its allies agreed Monday to support Najib Mikati, a Sunni self-made billionaire, for the prime minister’s post, a decision that could be confirmed by the full parliament as early as Tuesday.

From Hezbollah Jihadis Are Training To Take Over Beirut

To say that Lebanon is a bloody mess right now would be the understatement of the year. And now, we are seeing that the terrorist group, Hezbollah, is undergoing training exercises to actually seize the capital city of Beirut.

Posted by avideditor on January 17, 2011

I have know for a while that Lebanon is now a Iranian puppet but this makes it official.

Syria steps in to block Western support for ousted PM Hariri

DEBKAfile

In his first speech on the Lebanese crisis, Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Sunday night, Jan. 16: “The opposition will exercise its own national convictions and will not be intimidated by the world’s reaction.” He added: “The opposition” had decided unanimously not to name Saad Hariri, the pro-Western prime minister they toppled last week, as next head of government, meaning that the Hizballah-led camp will build its own regime shunning Hariri.

Anti-Islam Parties Big Winners in European Union

Posted by Glezele Vayne on June 9, 2009

BS”D

Another good news alert (gotta get it in while it lasts) is the fact that the anti-Syrian parties have won more seats in Lebanon’s parlaiment than Hezbollah. More here and, here.

Reasons for a cautious view of this good new here and here. — Ellie Katz

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

(IsraelNN.com) Anti-Islam parties scored big victories in European Union parliamentary voting that concluded Sunday. A record low voter turnout of only 43 percent helped the right wing parties enter the EU Parliament (EUP), while the conservative European People’s party retained its plurality, by a comfortable margin.

In the Netherlands,  Geert Wilders’ Freedom party won 17 percent of the country’s votes, giving it four out of the country’s 25 seats in the 736-seat EUP. Its support placed it less than three percent behind the ruling Christian Democratic Alliance’s showing.

Wilder has set off violent protests in the Muslim world because of his 15-minute film called Fitna, which links violence with the Koran. He also is working with Israeli Knesset Member Aryeh Eldad (National Union) to expose violence in Islam.

Jihad = Mein Kampf – Part 2

Posted by Glezele Vayne on March 8, 2009

BS”D

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” — Edmund Burke, Irish philosopher, statesman (1729-1797)

In Arabic, “jihad” literally means “self-struggle”. That is the soft definition. Allowing ourselves to become entangled in politically correct ideas and language will disarm us. It will weaken our resolve to defend ourselves and our way of life.

We are meant to think the concept of “jihad’ is solely about an internal, spiritual struggle. No. This is only part of the truth, says Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist in part 3 of this series. He goes on to tell us that “Mein Kampf” also means “my struggle”. He then asks us, what and who was Hitler struggling against? And then we must wonder, who are the jihadis struggling against?

I’ve excerpted some quotes from the video below, entitled “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West”. I have this entire series linked on my “Jihadis” page, at the very bottom. It can also be found, of course, on Youtube.

There is a demonstrable connection between the concept of “jihad”, the Muslim’s struggle against the Jewish people, the West, and all non-Muslims, indeed against all moderate Muslims, and “Mein Kampf”, Hitler’s struggle against the Jewish people and all who refused to submit to his view of things. The filmmakers are showing us how history is repeating itself. By excerpting especially poignant quotes, I hope to make plain that 1936 has arrived. Yesterday is back. Are we going to make the same mistakes?

Mein Kampf is a runaway bestseller in some Muslim controlled regions, such as the Palestinian administered territories.

Obsession: Part 2 of 10

We swear by the blood and severed bodies of our children and torment of our prisoners, and we will reply by blowing our bodies (sic). — Suicide bombers induction ceremony, Lebanon 1996

We need to understand the culture that produced terrorism. — Noni Darwish, daughter of a shahid (martyr)

Some people view the current situation with the Middle East as a clash of civilization. I think it’s more than that, way more than that. I think it’s an outright declaration of war from radical Islam on Western culture, on the Judeo-Christian culture. And…we should know that. It’s a declaration of war. — Noni Darwish, daughter of a shahid (martyr)

…It’s part of a campaign of jihad, holy war to bring down the West, undermine the very foundations of Christianity and Judaism. – Khaled Abu Toameh, Palestinian Journalist

The Islamists hate everything other than what they are themselves. They killed, for example, over 100,000 Algerians who disagreed with their brand of Islam. These are fellow Muslims. — Daniel Pipes, Director, Middle East Forum

There is a particular strand of Islam that has, in fact, challenged what I think is the absolutely central pillar of human civilization as such, namely, the sacredness of life itself. — Professor Robert Wistrich, Chair, Sassoon Center for Antisemitism

The most honorable death is by killing. And the most honorable killing and the most glorious martyrdom is when a man is killed for the sake of Allah. — Sheikh Hassah Nasrallah, Hizbollah General Secretary General, Al Manar TV 2005, (Translation MEMRI)

We succeeded with Allah’s grace, to raise an ideological generation that loves death like our enemies love life. — Raed Said Hussein Saad, Al-Qassam Brigades, Commander N. Gaza, Hamas website, December 2005 (translation Palestinian Media Watch)

Most people don’t realize the Muslims are also victims, because if they disagree, they get killed. — Walid Shoebat, former PLO terrorist

Would some Muslim or some Arab who in his heart believes that the Arab terrorism is terrorism, can he say it in (sic) publicly? He will be lynched in a Muslim society if he says that Hamas is a terrorist (sic). — Tashbih Sayyed, Editor, Pakistan Today

I would estimate that some 10 to 15%, and let me stress that it’s an estimate, of Muslims worldwide support militant Islam. That is not to say that only 10 to 15% are anti-American or anti-Zionist. No, that’s much larger. — Daniel Pipes, Director, Middle East Forum

1.2 billions are there with 15% (sic). This is a huge number. This is as big as the united States of America. And the bad thing about it is that they are spread all throughout (sic). — Walid Shoebat, former PLO terrorist

In the Middle East, Islam is our identity, is our political life, is our social life, it’s our life. As a child I attended Gaza elementary schools and we were taught that jihad is a religious holy war for the sake of Allah. That is what it is…to conquer the world for Allah. That is jihad. — Noni Darwish, daughter of a shahid (martyr)

We must educate our children on the love of jihad for the sake of Allah. And the love of fighting for the sake of Allah. — Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi, Palestinian TV, 2001 (translation by MEMRI)

Arabs kill Arabs: Jews get blamed

Posted by avideditor on August 13, 2008

Pravada is blaming the Jews for the the Russian Georgian war, and now CNN is blaming jews for  for Arabs killing Arabs. It is just absurd. It seems as Jews are responsible for every problem in the world. I heard a science fiction story about how the Jews got sick of getting blamed for all the problem on the earth. So they moved to the moon. But back on Earth despite all the Jews being gone. The countries still blamed all there problems on the Jews. I will see if I can post a link to the story tomorrow.  Here is the story. The rise in modern day Blood libels from the Al Dura Hoax to being blamed for all of the worlds problems makes me sick of the media using the jews as the scape goat. I feel like we are in a the late 1930’s in Germany with all the anti-Semitic propaganda.

Israel Matzav has the story Arabs kill Arabs: Jews get blamed?

 

There was a bus bombing in a business district of central Tripoli, Lebanon Wednesday morning. The bus was a civilian bus. Nine people were killed, seven of them soldiers. 

You will note in the report below that at least ‘some people’ are blaming Israel. I’m sure you’re all shocked.

The US is getting Ready to Bomb Iran to stop it from getting a NUKE

Posted by avideditor on April 6, 2008

I hope this data is right. If it is it looks like the US is going to take the important long over due step in disabling the nuclear program of Iran. The world can not live with a nuclear Iran because the culture of the current government in Iran is a culture of death, which will not be afraid of mutually insured destruction like the USSR. So everyone pray that we will bomb Iran before it is too later. I think it will be this week.

Exclusive: Iran, Syria, Lebanon on military alert over US Gulf movements and Israel’s home defense drill:
According to British media, the US is set to attack Iranian military facilities. DEBKAfile’s military sources add that the USS Abraham Lincoln Strike Force is heading for the Persian Gulf.
War tensions in the Middle East have shot up – not only over the signals flashing between Syria, Lebanon, and Israel, but also on the US-Iranian front in Iraq in the wake of rising in violence around the Basra conflagration.
Tuesday, April 8, US Iraq commander, Gen. David Petraeus and ambassador to Baghdad, Ryan Crocker, will stress in their report to Congress that Iran is waging war on America in Iraq, say sources in Washington, London and Baghdad.
This emerged strongly last week, when US intelligence learned that Iran had intervened directly in the Iraqi government’s crackdown on renegade militias in Basra and southern Iraq, by directing and provisioning those militias through the Revolutionary Guards’ al Qods Brigades.
Official sources in London predict that Iran’s intervention against the American effort to stabilize Iraq may well prompt a US attack on the military installations in Iran which are orchestrating the interference.
Gen. Petraeus is on record as accusing Iran of being the source of the daily rocket bombardment of Baghdad’s Green Zone, seat of government and US diplomatic and military headquarters.
DEBKAfile’s military sources report that Moscow has dropped its two nickels into the rising war alarm. In the last two weeks, Russian military and intelligence officials have been leaking claims of intensified American military movements around Iranian shores.
Iran is certain to come up in Presidents George W. Bush and Vladimir Putin’s farewell talks in the Black Sea resort of Sochi Sunday, along with other controversial business, such as Moscow’s objections to NATO’s eastern expansion and US missile shield in East Europe.
Saturday, US defense secretary Robert Gates turned up in Oman, the site of big American air bases, for talks with Sultan Qaboos. He then flew straight back to Washington. While Gates insisted to correspondents aboard his plane that the US is committed to a diplomatic solution for Iran’s covert nuclear program, the surpise visit struck sparks in the already fraught regional atmosphere, particularly as it followed on the heels of US Vice President Dick Cheney’s talks in Oman two weeks ago.
DEBKAfile’s Middle East sources sum up how Tehran and Damascus read these events and the picture they have built up of Washington’s intentions as combined with Israel’s military steps:
1. US is preparing to attack the Iranian military installations linked to subversion in Iraq. The operation will widen out into strikes on the Islamic Republic’s suspect nuclear sites.
2. Israel will use the chance for a concurrent attack on Syria.
3. Israel will attack Hizballah’s strongholds in Lebanon.
4. A broad, coordinated US-Israeli offensive will be mounted against Iran, Syria and Hizballah.
Iran and Syria view Israel’s four-day home defense exercise against missile attack, conventional or non-conventional, beginning Sunday, as setting the stage for these attacks.
Both believe Washington and Jerusalem are in close military step. Neither is reassured by soothing statements from prime minister Ehud Olmert and defense minister Barak that Israel does not seek violent confrontation – especially when the US administration is withholding all comment. Hence the high state of preparedness ordered by the jittery governments in Tehran, Damascus and Beirut.
