A year after Lebanon war

August 6, 2007 - 0:0

Not long has past since the first anniversary of Lebanon's 33-day war. Israel launched attacks on the southern Lebanon on July 12, 2006 and thus initiated a war which lasted for over 33 days and turned into a pile of dust a significant proportion of Lebanon's urban infrastructure.

It was a terrorist “war on civilians” in which the innocent were buried under the ruins of their homes and hundreds of people were killed in a span of just 33 days.
Horrendous as Israeli attacks were, they did not remain unanswered.
Under the leadership of Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the Lebanese Hezbollah succeeded to stop the Zionist regime and this elevated him to the level of a hero in the eyes of the Lebanese people and the larger Arab public.
Hezbollah fighters at the front were ????unmoved??? by the advanced military equipment of the Zionist army.
Hezbollah's rockets were certainly not as advanced and destructive as Israeli high-tech weaponry, but they created overwhelming horror in Israel and for the first time gave the Zionists a taste of their own medicine.
It was the first time the Israeli cities were being attacked just as the towns in the southern Lebanon.
The Lebanese’s love for their homeland only seemed to grow stronger with each Israeli attack. By their resistance against the foreign aggression, they proved that no power can ever dream of depriving them of their homes. The Hezbollah resistance proved that the Zionist regime is not invincible and a unity among the Middle Eastern countries can put an end to its overambitious transgressions.
Now, a year after the war and following a stunning confession by the Zionist army commanders that they had showered all towns in the southern Lebanon with cluster bombs and phosphorous shells forbidden under the international law, the world has accepted that Israeli officials and above all Ehud Olmert and his army commanders have been the ones to be blamed for war crimes committed in Lebanon.
Yet who would care about all that happened? Who would care that some areas are infected by unexploded munitions, and that the electricity has become a dream for the people of Marjayoun?
Who would care for the environmental crisis that erupted in Bint Jbeil after the savage killers escaped and left the bodies and ruined villages behind? Who would care about the houses and hearts full of debris?
No one. It is all done and past; the world has forgotten these as if they had never existed. A shadow of fear looms over Lebanon and the whole Middle East, it is subject to ebb and flow but never fades. This is the shadow of Zionism. As long as the Zionist regime exists, innocent people will be the victims of its ambitions.
Zionists take any and every action in order to expand their control over the lands and peoples. Lebanon was not their first victim and certainly it would not be the last one.
Ethnic Cleansing: these two words fairly well summarize the Zionists’ philosophy
