?The Israeli air strike on the Lebanese village of Qana early Sunday morning did more than kill 57 civilians,? says Jefferson Morley in the Washington Post. ?According to a wide range of commentary in the international media, it inflamed already boiling public opinion in the Arab world against Israel, undermined what little support the United States has among the Lebanese people, and illuminated the continuing inability of Israel and the United States to achieve their goal of decisively weakening Hezbollah.? The Hindustan Times editorialized that ?with Qana, one senses that the Israelis? definition of ?collateral damage? has started to bear a striking resemblance to that of the very terrorist organisation that they are keen to destroy.? At a rally outside the State Department building protesting the Qana ?massacre? on Monday, Leftist protestors chanted, ?Hey, Rice! What do you say? How many kids have you killed today??; ?Israel Out of Lebanon! Ceasefire, Now?; and ?Shame! Shame! Shame, on you!? An Australian Muslim in Qana told Australia?s Herald Sun: ?I would say a few hundred have died. This isn?t war, it?s genocide.?
Except for one little detail: it is increasingly clear that the Qana ?massacre? was a stage-managed Hizballah production, designed precisely to enflame international sentiment against Israel and compel the Israelis to accept a ceasefire that would enable the jihad terrorist group to gain some time to recover from the Israeli attacks. Some of the principal evidence for this:
The Israeli bombardment took place about midnight, but the house where the civilians were gathered reportedly did not collapse until 8AM. Said Brigadier General Amir Eshel of the Israeli Air Force, ?It is difficult for me to believe that they waited eight hours to evacuate it.? Indeed, it strains credulity that not only did these Lebanese civilians remain in a house that had been bombed for eight hours, but peacefully went to sleep in it after the bombing ? since the victims were all apparently sleeping, despite continuing Israeli air bombardment in the area, when the building collapsed. Eshel suggested that ?it could be that inside the building, things that could eventually cause an explosion were being housed, things that we could not blow up in the attack, and maybe remained there? ? in other words, Hizballah bombs and/or weapons.
Photos of the rescue operation, which were transmitted all over the world and appeared on the front page of the New York Times and other major newspapers, are extremely suspicious. The blog EU Referendum has done important work scrutinizing the photos, finding numerous anomalies. Most notably, the dating of the various photos suggests that the same bodies were paraded before reporters on different occasions, each time as if they had just been pulled from the rubble. In a rebuttal to this charge, AP?s David Bauder rather lamely asserts: ?web sites can use such stamps to show when pictures are posted, not taken.? Responds Richard North of EU Referendum: ?Note, however, the use of the word ?can?. He does not say that the ?date stamps? are wrong.? EU Referendum has also uncovered strange anomalies in the photos themselves: some workers are wearing different gear in different photos, yet clearly carrying the same corpse. Richard North comments about one of these workers: ?It stretches belief to breaking point to argue that, on his way to the ambulance, he took off his helmet, his fluorescent waistcoat and his flack jacket just in order to pose for the cameras putting the body in the wagon ? especially as we have the body being placed on the ?guerney? ? which means the scenes are totally inconsistent.?
The very existence of these pictures raises more questions. As Israel Insider puts it: ?While Hezbollah and its apologists have been claiming that civilians could not freely flee the scene due to Israeli destruction of bridges and roads, the journalists and rescue teams from nearby Tyre had no problem getting there.?
The Christian Lebanese website LIBANOSCOPIE has charged that Hizballah staged the entire incident in order to stimulate calls for a ceasefire, thereby staving off its destruction by Israel and Lebanese plans to rid themselves of this terrorist plague: ?We have it from a credible source that Hizbullah, alarmed by Siniora?s plan, has concocted an incident that would help thwart the negotiations. Knowing full well that Israel will not hesitate to bombard civilian targets, Hizbullah gunmen placed a rocket launcher on the roof in Qana and brought disabled children inside, in a bid to provoke a response by the Israeli Air Force. In this way, they were planning to take advantage of the death of innocents and curtail the negotiation initiative.?
According to the German scholar Matthias K?ntzel, ?the Berlin daily the Tagesspiegel published a letter-to-the-editor from Dr. Mounir Herzallah, a Shiite from the South of Lebanon. Dr. Herzallah reports on how Hezbollah-terrorists came to his town, dug a munitions depot and then built a school and a residence directly over it. He writes: ?Laughing, a local sheikh explained to me that the Jews lose either way: either because the rockets are fired at them or because, if they attack munitions depot, they are condemned by world public opinion on account of the dead civilians.? Hezbollah, he says, uses the civilian population ?as a human shield and then when they are dead as propaganda.??
Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, declared that ?War is deceit.? Specifically, he taught that lying was permissible in battle. While the doctrines of religious deception (taqiyya and kitman) are most often identified with Shi?ite Islam, and ostensibly rejected by Sunnis, because they were sanctioned by the Prophet, they can still be found in traditions that Sunni Muslims consider reliable, and are practiced among Salafis. Jihadists today have spoken of the usefulness of deceptive practices.
Americans and Westerners are not used to dealing with carefully orchestrated and large-scale deception of this kind. It is time that it be recognized as a weapon of warfare, and an extremely potent one at that. Qana has already largely accomplished what it was supposed to. It will now take its place beside the Danish cartoons, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and all the rest as a useful focal point for Muslim outrage and a magnet for jihad recruitment. The dhimmi Leftist Western press is happy, for it can again show America and Israel as guilty in the world?s site. The mujahedin are happy, for jihad and Sharia will advance still more. The only people who couldn?t possibly be happy with this are the Israelis and others on the front lines of the jihad worldwide.
But who cares about them?

I have read some pretty disgraceful and downright disgusting articles in my life, but this pile of crap tht is smeared above takes the cake as the worst. Hizballah is a group that was organized after many years of arab suffering at Israeli hands, in order to resist an Israeli occupation of Lebanon. YES they are armed and they dam well should be... how else do you resist a force backed by state of the art american weaponary and technology. The fact that you are accusing Hizballah of setting up Qana is simply outrageous and is frankly blunt and un-supported. You not only do not have visual evidence to back up these false and ridiculous points, you also have no justification for calling them a terrorist organization that uses its citizens as shields. They indeed have a history of targetting embasies in order to get their point across, but these are the embasies of the opressors, in places where they are niether welcomed nor wanted (ie: Argentinians mainly support Che Guevara's ideologies which like that of the arabs, condems Israel and the USA for their crimes). Also, the embasies contain employees of the government who cannot be considered civillians, taking away the idea of Hizballah being a terrorist organization for that matter. Going back to your point of them using their citizens as human shields, that is outright for lack of a better term: WRONG. They are a guerilla force that operates on guerilla tactics, and if you knew anything about this system, you would know that guerilla's fight in secret and have niether a single weapon storage, a single base, or a single birgade of troops. This means that their weapons are hidden in places where they would least likely be found. In the extremely rare situations where they are in places such as schools, they do not evacuate citizens into those areas. The information that you are saying about the rocket launcher being on the roof @ the time of Qana is incorrect. The Israeli air force knowingly attacked the area with the children, fearing that those children will one day grow up and fight them. THOSE ARE WHAT ABIDE BY THE DEFINITION OF TERRORIST! In fact after the Qana attack, the UN entered Qana and searched the entire village for any artillary, to find any sort of justification----and there was NOTHING. Qana was being used by villagers all over the south as a ahelter from the 'danger areas.' There were no Hizballah fighters in Qana, there was no weapon stash in Qana, there wasn't even a gun in Qana. In fact, a Lebanese man from Qana was quoted on CNN following the attacks on Qana as saying, "Search me, search the entire village, go ahead, if you find a hizballah fighter, if you find even a single bullet in the entire town, then Israel was 100% right in doing this!" To put it in simple terms- Qana, like all of the other Lebanese villages such as Srifa, Dweir, and Arzoon to name a few, WAS A MASSACRE with no evitable justification behind it. And before you define Hizballah as a jihad organization fiz your definition of jihad-- and don't you dare put it in the same league as terrorist groups like Al-Queda and the Taliban. Hizballah has absolutely no connection to any of these groups and in fact-- Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and Islamic Ayatollah Muhammed Hussein Fadlallah condem Al-Queda and Osama Bin Laden for all of their terrorist actions- terrorist actions like those by american backed Israeli Zionists. Now that I have proven your article wrong, I can let you regret in peace, if anyone reading this has aany further questions for clarification, email me ----> email@example.com
you dont fukin deserve to know my name
You are a propagandist.
The "occupation" of Lebanon? What a joke. Israel did not occupy one square inch of Lebanon when Hezbollah (Party of Allah) terrorists fired missiles into Israel and kidnapped its citizens.
If you are going to come up with excuses you will have to try a lot harder. When you are finished making excuses, perhaps you will admit that Hezbollah represents genocidal Islamist fascism.
Firstly get your facts right, Israel fired bombs on Lebanon first. Don?t sit there and talk about something you don?t know about ok. Get all the details right then open your big fat mouth. Don?t just listen to the media where you are from ok because they tell you what you want to hear. Secondly define terrorist before making false remarks about Hezbollah he is not a terrorist nor is it apart of Islam. And anyway this isn?t the first time Hezbollah has kidnapped Israeli?s, and he did this only to free the Lebanese people that are captive in Israel. The second day of the war in Lebanon Israel started to bomb the schools in Lebanon, isn?t that apart of terrorism, or is it only if the Muslims did it? And what about blowing up ambulances isn?t that apart of terrorism. Why do people assume that what Taliban did is apart of the Quran or Islam its not it?s totally against what they did. Why don?t you look at the Jewish religion it is said that Lebanon, Palestine and Syria are Promised Land for them and they will take over them? So in this situation who is the terrorist?
To the Writer:
Do you believe in something called "Witnesses"? All these people that live in the surroundings and were present at the time of the attack didn't see what happened? No matter what you believe or what sounds suspicious to you, Hizballah are a group of decent individuals raised with morals/ethics/dignity...... They are not a bunch of "Guirrellas" like America refers to them. They are real & brave humans that can define the word "Mercy", unlike so called "Isarel State" a bunch of cowards that have killed generations and generations since the beginning of time. Search history and look up numbers! You will be able to calculate and find out "Who is the Mother of Terrorism"?
NOT guerillas? NOT? That showed the limitation of your intelligence and devalued any other comment you could possibly post.
guerilla - a member of an irregular armed force that fights a stronger force by sabotage and harassment
BRAVE? The last time the rest of the world knew people who hide behind women and children and never show their faces are shameful cowards.
DECENT? Hezbollah??? WTF! It is enough for me that in 1983 241 innocent US Marines were murdered (murder, by the way, is not decent or moral) by those cowards. The US should have obliterated Hezbollah and Iran the very next morning.
Everyone but you terrorist lovers knows who is the mother of terrorism. That sow Muhammed. He's the mother of terrorism.
Sad, but Hezbollah has now adapted the "Pallywood" tactics of the Palestinians. Hezbollywood was only a matter of time in coming; just as the Palestinian terrorists began to use the successful tactics of the Hezbolla (rockets, kidnappings, etc.) the Hezbolla is now staging events for the gullible (or culpable) world media. They would be crazy not to do so after seeing how well it has worked in the past.
For more information on Pallywood see www.seconddraft.org/movies.php
even a representative of the leftist UN has acknowledged that hizballah uses human shields...get your head out of the sand, the first and second posters...it's so typical of the muslim terrorists to make innocent civilians pay...just take a look at 9/11! i have a lebanese christian friend with family in lebanon brutally killed by hizballah for daring to have a different religion...a group of women and children in iraq had their throats slashed for 'colluding' with the americans last week...killing women and children seem to be the terrorists' speciality...israel warned kana's residents for three days, unlike hizballah which daily target civilians in israel...if israel fought as dirty as their enemy, they would have been wiped out by now!
What incredible thoughtlessness evidenced by some of the comments! Do these people want to live? Their leaders say they live to die. We acknowledge that we fight to live. There can be no compromise between life and death. I'll take them at their word. I won't try to make sense out of the nonsense parroted at the sound of a bell. Since I'm not the only one who thinks like this, I would suggest that those in the Middle East who do think hightail it out of Dodge. Those standing next to you who want to die, and take as many with them as possible, are going to push things until there is no choice but to oblige them.
