As Israel Prepares To Go Into LebanonTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Israeli ambassador to the United Nations Dan Gillerman speaking to reporters today: "We have the US behind us because we are right, because we are just, because we are moral and because we are a democracy. Hamas and Hezbollah have Iran and Syria behind them because they are terror organizations."
This as Israel prepares to strike into Lebanon. Flopping Aces has the "Latest From Israel."
Meanwhile, if you follow Fox News, Hezbollah doesn't need a propaganda machine or media spokesperson. They've got Shepard Smith on Fox to rant about how great Hezbollah is and how scary it is for the IDF to cross into Lebanon on the ground.
My own guess is that Israel will not actually make the big ground push into Lebanon until after Condoleeza Rice's trip to the region.
And while we're on the topic and as the old expression goes - mark my words, the "only" way this is going to come to a successful conclusion for Israel and the West, is IF the international community, and especially France, Germany, Britain, and the U.S., finally wake up and hold Iran and Syris, particularly Syria at this point, responsible for the terrorism they sponsor and perpetuate throughout the world. We must start with Lebanon, and go from there, with particular attention to Iraq and Iran's nuclear program.
