Hezbollah succeeds in killing … Lebanese

with 12 comments

Reports of Hezbollah killing 18 suspected “spies” in Tyre. Also, reports of Hezbollah trying to force Druze villagers to harbor their rocket launchers.

Reminds me of Ahmad (Machmoud? sorry, can’t remember) Tabak in Nablus, first intifada. His men killed more suspected ‘collborators’ then the Israeli army ever did. Most of them were people who did not pay his protection fees.

Terrorist organizations terrorise. That’s what they’re good at.

  1. Tsahal (IDF) is a popular army, a concept that westerners are not really familiar with. It is not a professional army, and most of its force does not come from career soldiers. Serving in the army is part of the ‘civil contract’ of Israel, at least for part of the population.

    This state is a direct consequence of the common sentiment that Israel is still under cocnstant existential threat. You can call it national paranoia, but statments like Ahmadinejad’s today make it sound quite reasonable.

    This explains the commitment and solidarity most Israelis feel towards the army. It also, on the other hand, explains that fact that Israel’s refusal movement is unmatched anywere else (with the possible exception of Apartheid SA).

  2. I understand. However, Japan is under threat from North Korea (which apparently already has nukes, unlike Iran, apparently), yet it is not allowed a conventional army under its constitution (despite the fact it is far from being the fascist dictatorship it once was-and anyway, Germany was allowed to retain its army). Japan is its true defended by the US…but then, isn’t Israel armed to the teeth by the US? And do you really think Iran is going to risk being anihilated by Israel and the US? After all, isn’t that why it prefers to send its proxy, Hezbollah, to fight on its behalf in poor old Lebanon?
