I can only see things like this as pushing people directly into the arms of the Militants when they, rather then the Israelis end up doing the
humanitarian thing. They should have never kept those crossings closed for so long.
Well, we are seeing, the "Prepared" news is starting to arrive, and it does suggests as you have noted.
Militants Blow Hole in Egypt-Gaza Border Wall
Friday, July 14, 2006
RAFAH, Gaza Strip — Hundreds of Palestinians poured into the Gaza Strip from Egypt on Friday after militants blew a hole in the border wall, an
Associated Press reporter at the scene said.
The border has largely been closed since June 25, when Palestinian militants carried out a cross-border raid on a military outpost, killing two
Israeli soldiers and capturing one.
Hundreds of people have been stranded on the Egyptian side of the border, unable to get to their homes in Gaza.
(I am always supportive of truth, and will acknowledge you where accurate in you assessment, but I also expect these are not the only people flooding
I did find an Update on the Security Council, but this is not what I heard watching the Video of those Talks. MSM Prepared reporting again. It
Israel, Lebanon Trade Blame in Security Council
Friday, July 14, 2006
....The Israeli offensive was sparked by Wednesday's kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah guerrillas who crossed the Blue Line, which is
not an official border but was drawn by the United Nations to mark Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon in May 2000. Hezbollah operates with near
autonomy in south Lebanon, and the government has resisted international pressure to disarm it — a step that could break the country apart.
Israel's U.N. Ambassador Dan Gillerman told the Security Council that Israel had no choice but to react to the "absolutely unprovoked attack" by
Hezbollah, which included rocket attacks into Israel.
"Israel's actions were in response to an act of war from Lebanon," he said, stressing that it was concentrated mainly on Hezbollah strongholds.
But many Security Council ambassadors who spoke afterward accused Israel using excessive force — destroying critical civilian infrastructure and
killing and injuring innocent civilians.
Gillerman blamed the Lebanese government for failing to respond to numerous Security Council resolutions demanding that it disarm Hezbollah and take
control of southern Lebanon. He told the council that many Lebanese know Israel is doing the right thing in attacking Hezbollah, and if it succeeds
generations to come will live in a "free, democratic Lebanon."
"The real occupying power in Lebanon is terror — terror instigated by Hezbollah but funded by Iran and Syria," he said.
It fails to note the Language used in specific to the comments I made eariler, but I will seek those out. This seems to be a twisted verison of the
actual event, although I can understand the context shown, since all are fairly Tense right now.
Security Council calls on all sides in Middle East to cooperate with UN team
14 July 2006 – Following a Security Council meeting today to discuss the escalating crisis in the Middle East, its President called on all
“concerned sides and parties” to fully cooperate with a high-level United Nations team – which includes Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special
Political Adviser – that has been sent to the region.
“The Security Council welcomes the Secretary-General’s decision to dispatch to the Middle East a senior-level team,” the 15-member body said in
a statement to the press read out by its President for July, Ambassador Jean-Marc de la Sablière of France. “The Security Council calls on all
concerned states and parties to extend their full cooperation to the team.”
So the situation from the U.N. has also not addressed the comments made from within the meeting. A short comment on the discussion is noted as
These opening remarks were then followed by statements from the representatives of Lebanon and Israel as well as by all 15 members of the Council
who met for consultations before coming up with the press statement.
It is now being announced by the Head of Hezbollah in Lebanon, that "You wanted war, You will have Open War". No press on this yet. It was just
annouced on the Air, but this was said, in the same breath as noting people were celebrating in Southern Lebanon, by these remarks.
Well let's trust this piece of work is at least Honest, and lines each and every Terrorist within the Hebollah to the Border, to standup like men and
fight Israel with integrity, rather than cowering and hiding in the Civilian Populace.
and More Breaking News
And it seems they may intend to. Fianlly, news from Hezbollah, has now been aired indicating they have Hit an Israeli Ship with two rockets. At least
that is something being done right. Attack the Military. Leave the Arab's and Jews alone in Hiafa.
Well, I guess we'll see where this goes as the day progresses.
