چند روز پیش مطلبی در باره جنگ لبنان در
یک وبلاگ استرالیای دیدم با این مضمون:
Fatal attack on
Israel 'crosses red line'
This article on the ABC website says that Israel has said that attacks
on Haifa by Islamic terrorists would be a 'red line', which would result in
severe repercussions. No good can come of this, especially in light of the
fact that the English-speaking world is backing Israel and blaming
Hezbollah, and that all Arab and Muslim countries are backing either the
long-suffering Lebanese government, or the terrorists themselves.
The thing I find the
most tragic, is how utterly depraved Hezbollah are to unilaterally attack
Israel and then allow the Lebanese civilian population accept the inevitable
reprisals. Their political demands seem insignificant; what does appear
significant is their willingness to gamble with the lives of innocents in a
calculated attempt to start a larger war, and this in particularly
highlights their utter moral bankruptcy. The trouble with radical Islam is
that it brooks no compromise with anything not yet Muslim. Israel demands
that Hezbollah disarm, but they will never disarm... when they are
militarily weak, they will bide their time, and when they are strong, they
will fight and murder, or provoke others into doing their dirty work for
them. They will continue to exist until they are dealt with in such a way
that they cannot continue to exist.I may not agree with
their methods, but I am beginning to see why Israel feels compelled to act
the way it does. It has to exist as a modern-day Sparta, and anything less
would be seen by its numerous enemies as weakness and it would be destroyed,
finishing what the Nazis started in WWII. And it is only made possible by
Islam's pathological insistence on blaming all the social and political ills
in that beknighted part of the world on Israel and the West, instead of
taking a long hard look at itself.I wish Israel and the free world success
in wiping Hezbollah and its sponsors off the face of the Earth.

Indeed. I went to school with, and later worked with some
Iranians/Persians in Australia, and I know them to be a proud people,
with a history, culture and food quite distinct from most other people
in the region. And so it is easy to understand how Iranian people
must resent being treated the way they are these days.

Ahmadinejad's speeches might be aimed for local consumption to rally
his supporters (I can understand this, he is a politician, and we have
politicians in Australia and the UK too :-) ), but his words do not
play well with the people overseas, especially in European countries
who are potential friends of the Iranian people (if not the
government). The trouble is, whipping up hate of others based on
stereotypes is very dangerous -- remember, the Nazis killed millions
of people, and it all started with speeches too. Now our civilisation
has to live with the memory and guilt of their monstrous crimes. Many
countries in the West have laws against hate speech against other
races and religions for a good reason -- because we know that despite
being "civilised", all humans have the innate ability to hate and
murder, and all it takes is a clever politician with the right
speeches to start it.

How would any right thinking person be glad that so many innocent
people have died? I'm not.
Last time I read the news, Hezbollah weren't part of the Lebanese
army. They do not report to the Government, or the Lebanese people.
They are accountable to nobody except perhaps God and a handful of
religious people. When they start a war and let innocent people get
hurt, how can they be held accountable? How can they be punished if
they make a bad call, and thousands die? Who is going to stop them?
And let me ask: did the Lebanese people ever given informed consent to
Hezbollah to start this crisis before they kidnapped those two
Let me ask you a rhetorical question. Would you kick a sleeping tiger
in the backside and not expect to get eaten? What about kicking a
sleeping tiger in the backside, and letting your children get eaten?
That's essentially what Hezbollah are doing by starting all this
trouble. They knew that Israel would send in the army, and kill
hundreds of innocent people even before they got those two soldiers,
and they chose to ginve Israel an excuse to attack Lebanon. They
chose to start a war. They chose to launch rockets at civilians, from
civilian areas, and then let women and children get blown to pieces
when the Israelis shot back. This is wrong.
I do not understand why then, the Lebanese people would then support
them. It might be different between Lebanese Christians and Lebanese
Muslims (and I know that many Muslims feel a connection with the ummah
that is hard for many Westerners to understand), but still, I don't
even pretend to understand why anybody would support people who are
using them as human shields.
Starting a war is the worst crime imaginable -- and they are no better
than Blair and Bush and their illegal and immoral war in Iraq. As
usual, the innocent people suffer.
Let me stress that I am not at all trying to justify what Israel are
doing in Lebanon... the mass murder of innocents can never be
condoned. On the other hand, it is a VERY big ask for Israel to sit
and do nothing while they're being attacked by militants who do not
represent the Lebanese people, and who are funded and armed by bad
governments in neighbouring countries. Last time I checked,
radar-guided missiles don't grow on trees!
Both sides are as bad as each other. But starting a war -- that is the

Most of the European countries have criticized Israel for destroying
Lebanon. It is really only America and their vassals (e.g. Britain
and Australia) that is quiet about what is going on in southern
Lebanon. I don't see what you see on the news in Iran, but MANY
people in these countries too are opposed to the collective punishment
of the Lebanese people by the IDF.
(As you probably know, all the English-speaking countries are stuck
with very right-wing governments at the moment (and 9/11 attacks
helped conservative governments), and they will always have an
instinctive bias towards Israel -- everyone understands this. And
while that happens, it will be difficult to make peace. Maybe in the
next elections, the US will get a government that will not take sides
in the Middle East conflict.)
There were large and angry protests everywhere, just as there were
millions of people in the streets when American invaded Iraq. On the
other hand, a handful of militia-men accountable to nobody but God
cannot be allowed to start World War 3!

Absolutely, and that's something we can both agree on. Alas, the
world is not a fair place and it lacks justice. Then we would see the
war criminals on all sides being brought to justice.
