Lebanon Rejects Cease Fire Proposal

Sunday, August 06, 2006
In a show of the true intelligence which makes Arab countries the envy of the world Hezbollah's man in Beirut announced that
"Lebanon, all of Lebanon, rejects any talks or any draft resolution that does not include the seven-point government framework," Berri said at a news conference in Beirut.
Let's hope that Hezbollah has so crippled the Lebanese government that it maintains this line of defiance until there is not a brick left sitting on top of another brick in Lebanon.

It seemed as if Israel's objective of clearing hezzie scum from a zone extending to the Litani was impossible as of yesterday but the Lebanese government has provided additional time for the operation to be completed.

Stick to your guns Berri - until they get rammed down your throat.

UPDATE: Syria joins in repudiation of the cease fire proposal.

So now what? It would seem to me that this puts Israel in a better position, after all, they are not the ones demanding a cease fire.

Will the UN vote for it anyway?

as someone noted yesterday,
the Arab and Islamic world sits on billions of gallons of unearned oil wealth that has quadupled in value in the last year.

why. Why? WHY? is the *the* premier existential and cosmic goal of the Islamic world the "elimination of Israel"?


are the world press
too stupid to ask
a simple question?

or have the petro-dollars simply bought the networks and stringers and editors?

Long Live Israel.

"So now what?"

That depends upon whether Olmert and Peretz wake up feeling like lions of Judah or lambs for slaughter.

For anyone wondering about how Gore or Kerry would conduct themselves - here's an example. Israel deserves better. The Arab jackals are going to be emboldened by the paucity of leadership being shown.

Well Rick it seems that they are either being criticized for being too hard or too soft. I am no expert and don't pretend to b.
