ISIS Taking Root in Lebanon

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

ISIS troops are currently battling Lebanese Army troops in the northeast part of the country, as the Islamic terror group continues its effort to spread across the Middle East.

Israel Radio reported Wednesday that the United States and France have agreed to supply the Lebanese army with additional weaponry to fight the rebels, but it is far from clear that the additional arms will help the local military fight the terrorists. In Iraq, ISIS troops routed US-trained army units and slaughtered hundreds of prisoners-of-war before embarking on an expanded program of ethnic cleansing to rid the areas under its control of Christians.

Closer to home, Lebanese army forces in South Lebanon have surrendered jurisdiction de facto to Hezbollah rather than face the wrath of the terror gang, and the likely slaughter of Lebanese soldiers who dared fight the Iranian-backed militia.

Hezbollah spokesmen said the organization would not interfere with an ISIS takeover of Lebanon, saying the group’s mandate is to “protect Lebanon from the Zionist enemy.”
 

Former Human Shield Victim Defends IDF

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

A former victim of the Palestinian terrorist groups’ use of human shields has courageously appeared on a national American television network to defend IDF military actions in Gaza. Brigitte Gabriel, author of ‘Because They Hate,’ appeared on the Fox News cable television network program, ‘The Kelly File,’ to discuss the question of whether or not Israel is to blame for the many civilian casualties in Gaza.

What she had to say – in lightly Arabic-accented in Israel – may have been a complete surprise to the millions of American viewers who have been fed on a steady diet of little other than scenes of bleeding, dead children and women with Israeli soldiers and gunfire.

‘The Palestinians have perfected using children to win the world’s sympathy,” she said, “and this goes back 30 years.”

Between 1975 and 1976, Gabriel herself was used, along with her own mother and siblings, in her family’s bomb shelter.

“We were nine children hiding in a bomb shelter,” she related. “My mother went out and begged the Palestinian leader who parked his cannon – they used to park their rocket launchers in front of our homes, launch at Israel fully knowing that when Israel retaliates we’re going to make the Evening News and they would move their rocket launcher from home to home, fire one rocket in front of each home and move away…. The Palestinians have perfected the propaganda war. They cannot win militarily against Israel so what they do is they use their own children as disposable collateral in order to win the war of public opinion against Israel.

The United Nations has sharply condemned Israel over its attacks on Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists who positioned themselves close to UNWRA (UN Works and Relief Agency) schools and other facilities, where Gaza civilians were sheltering. During those firefights, civilians were wounded, provoking the outrage of the international community, which was only allowed to view scenes of carnage that appeared to be caused by Israeli missile or mortar fire.

News photographers are intimidated – and sometimes outright threatened by Hamas terrorists – to keep their camera lenses away from any scenes that might document the truth of the matter. Cowed into obedience and knowing the long arm of the terror groups can also reach overseas, they and their news agencies have long since come to understand it is not worth the price of their lives to do otherwise.

One Italian journalist was brave enough to tweet the truth in a post on the Twitter social networking site once he reached the safety of his home country, Italy, last week.

“Israel is always careful with civilian lives. Israel goes out of its way,” Gabriel stated bluntly. “What other country drops leaflets by the thousands warning civilians to leave because they’re gonna bomb in 48 hours? What other nation gives such notice? They do it in Lebanon, they do it with Hezbollah in Lebanon during the war. They do it with Hamas in Gaza. If the civilians do not leave, we need to ask why.”

Gabriel also pointed out that of all the rockets and missiles fired by Hamas at Israel, more than 100 fell short and actually exploded in Gaza.

“So all the casualties that Hamas is talking about are not exactly Israeli casualties or because of Israel. It’s because the Palestinians do not value the lives of their children and they are willing to sacrifice their children in the cause of jihad (Islamic holy war).”

Former Human Shield: Palestinians Perfected Propaganda War [video]

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

A former 10-year-old Lebanese girl used as a human shield by Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon told Fox News “Kelly File” last week, “The Palestinians have perfected using children to win the world’s sympathy, and this goes back 30 years. The Palestinians have perfected the propaganda war.”

“My mother begged the Palestinian leader who used to park their rocket launchers in front of our homes, launch Israel fully knowing that when Israel retaliates, we will make the evening news,” she told Kelly File.

Gabriel added, “They would move their rocket launcher from home to home, fire one rocket and move away. When Israel retaliated,…guess what was on Lebanese television that night? People wounded because of Israel, and Lebanon television was saying look how horrible Israelis are. They are killing children.

“The Palestinians…cannot win militarily against Israel so they use their own children as disposable collateral in order to win the war of public opinion against Israel.”

Gabriel, an American journalist and activist, was born as Nour Saman in Lebanon. She has said that her life was saved by Israeli soldiers in the Litani maneuver in 1978, when she had been warned by someone of an Islamic attack on Christians.

Her constant condemnation of Islam has made her bait for criticism not only by Muslims but also by The New York Times. In an article by Deborah Solomon in 2008 its magazine, she called Gabriel a “radical Islamophobe,” a label that was protested by 250 people.

In 2007, she told Christians United for Israel annual conference, “The difference, my friends, between Israel and the Arab world is the difference between civilization and barbarism. It’s the difference between good and evil… They have no soul, they are dead set on killing and destruction. And in the name of something they call ‘Allah’, which is very different from the God we believe….”

Israel’s Deepest Tunnel Found near Lebanon

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

A joint Joe Settler and Jameel exclusive article.

As the IDF searches for tunnels near Gaza, the Hebrew University’s Center for Cave Exploration in the Geology Department stumbled across the deepest and longest underground cave and tunnel in Israel, descending to a depth of 187 meters.

The natural cave was discovered up north, near the Lebanese border.

Lebanon has caves that reach a depth of 600 meters, and deeper caves may yet be found in Israel.

The cave was explored by Vladimir Boslov, Yuri Lisovitch, and Boaz Langford.

Much to the delight of the Palestinian Authority, the tunnel’s discovery proves for them that Palestinians lived in Israel 100 million years ago, digging tunnels even way back then.

UNESCO immediately and unanimously accepted the Palestinian claim, and declared the cave a Palestinian Heritage Site.

Later in the day, the UN expressed “shock” when their inspectors discovered ancient explosives and primitive Hamas rockets hidden inside the cave, which they promptly handed back over to Hamas.

Lebanon Shoots at Israel Again [video]

Lebanon – 6 Rockets Almost Landed in Israel

Friday, July 11th, 2014

Lebanon’s Daily Star reports that Lebanese terrorists planned to launch 6 rockets into Israel, but only one of them managed to land in Israel.

Lebanese Army Intelligence and UNIFIL soldiers found traces of 6 rockets 2 kilometers from the border with Israel.

Of the four launched at Israel, two apparently landed short, in Lebanon, while one exploded at launch, injuring the terrorist trying to launch it. Blood and a ripped shoe were found at the site.

The Lebanese Army defused the remaining two 107mm Grad rockets that were set to go off.

Lebanon’s Daily Star reports that Israel fired 25 artillery shells in response, causing no casualties.

UNIFIL is also looking into the incident.

Israel believes the attack came from an independent terror group, and not Hezbollah.

Lebanon Terrorists Join Gaza Attacks

Friday, July 11th, 2014

 

Early Friday morning, Lebanese terrorists seemed to be joining the conflict with Israel launched by the Hamas terrorist rulers of Gaza.

IDF Spokesperson Lt.Col. Peter Lerner told journalists it is not clear whether the rocket fire was “symbolic or something more substantial” at this point. However, he said, Israel has suspected for some time that terrorists in Lebanon might open a second front in the conflict with Islamist terrorists Gaza.

At least three rockets have been fired at Israel from Lebanon since midnight, the first having been launched at about 2 am. That one didn’t make it to Israel and apparently landed within Lebanon.

Two more missiles were fired from a southern Lebanon village into Israel at about 6:30 a.m.

One of the missiles exploded in an open area on the outskirts of the northern Israeli city of Metullah, located on the border with Lebanon.

The second missile – reported by Lebanese media but unconfirmed at this point by Israel — apparently malfunctioned and landed inside Lebanese territory.

Forces from UNIFIL (United Nations International Force in Lebanon) and Lebanese security personnel immediately began to search for those who launched the missiles.

Within the hour the IDF responded with its own barrage of artillery fire, aiming at targets across the northern border.

The Islamist Hezbollah terrorist organization in Lebanon is generously funded, equipped and trained by Iran, and in recent years has been actively involved in teaching its skills to the Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terror groups in Gaza. Hezbollah terrorist cells have been found in the Sinai Peninsula and in various other locations around the world, particularly in Europe – in many cases where Hamas also has mini-bases and “satellite headquarters.” Likewise, Hamas and PIJ have received much funding and weaponry from Iran over the past several years.

All three groups are also linked to Syria; in the current conflict, Hamas for the first time began firing a new longer-range M302 missile, produced by Syria.
