“…a near-total victory for Hizbullah…”

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in The War On Terrorism, The World, United Nations

A good editorial from Jerusalem Post today.

I’ll let it speak for itself:

There is a good reason that Hizbullah chief Hassan Nasrallah has accepted UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which sets the terms for a cease-fire between his jihad army and the State of Israel.

The resolution represents a near-total victory for Hizbullah and its state sponsors Iran and Syria, and an unprecedented defeat for Israel and its ally the United States. This fact is evident both in the text of the resolution and in the very fact that the US decided to sponsor a cease-fire resolution before Israel had dismantled or seriously degraded Hizbullah’s military capabilities.

While the resolution was not passed under Chapter 7 of the UN Charter and so does not have the authority of law, in practice it makes it all but impossible for Israel to defend itself against Hizbullah aggression without being exposed to international condemnation on an unprecedented scale.

Read the whole thing.

    i from lithuania so my view is totally different i know what is propaganda.
    this hezbollah and arab propaganda concentration on human suffering. this time
    you won. but do you truly won i don`t think so. truly war even did not started
    now about 170 jews had died and you say this is defeat gets very funny.
    jews will get only benefit from it. finally comic Lebanon army will be in south.
    and pressure on Iran begins. its get funny when Arab can`t pronounce
    hezbollah equal terrorism. and all world has to know that one jewish helicopter
    was shot down. hezbollah scared to recognize what jews every day shoots about 20-40
    hezbollah terrorists. so you can really start to count how much hezbollah terrorists
    was killd :)
    about civilians deaths it looks that arabs are illiterates than jews suggest to
    run away it you care you will get it i don`t understand womens which don`t care
    abuot there children, which with such joy speak you know i don`t have money so i stay
    with my children in war zone it`s truly shows everything. that hezbollah
    supporters are like Nazis who are ready to sacrifice theirs and theirs
    children lifes for hezbollah.
    than silly arabs talk that hezbollah is a part of Lebanon and that hezbollah
    legally elected
    i can say one sentence it you aren’t? stupid to understand it:
    Hitler was elected also

    it reminds Vietnam do you know why USA lost war because USA could not attack north Vietnam.
    because Vietnam was supported by Russia and could start World War III.
    so what do we learnt from this
    that jews first need to cut supply from Iran so we leave Lebanon for few moments aside and go
    to work on top secret project Irans regimen change.
