I'm a first generation American and both my parents are Lebanese. We have Lebanese television through satellite. This story has been covered and
there is actual video of what happened; no he said she said written report.
The tree was on the Lebanese side of the border. Now, imagine a fence (the border). There was an excavator bulldozer (the kind with a long crane/neck)
on the Israeli side. The crane reached OVER the fence and tried to remove a tree on the Lebanese side.
The War of Independance where Israel v Syria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon & Jordan. Who won that? ISRAEL !!!
1956 (Egypt). Who won that? ISRAEL !!!
1967 (Six Day War: Israel v Syria, Egypt & Jordan. Who won that? ISRAEL !!!
1973 (Yom Kippur War: Syria, Egypt with support from Jordan and Libya). Who won that? ISRAEL !!!
1982 (Lebanon) Who won that? ISRAEL !!! Except Israel did'nt stay long enough to finish the job.
2006 (Lebanon). Who won that? ISRAEL !!! Again, Israel did'nt stay long enough to finish the job. ...
Despite after "winning" all those wars, Israel is still today under threat of being annihilated by surrounding Arab states. Why? Because
numbers and size still matter in warfare. 200 million Arab/Iranians surround 7 million Israelis on 3 sides, with its back side facing the
Actually, they went alot deeper than that and even Nassrallah was #ting himself.
Probably for either political or morale purpose, IDF did airlifted by helicopters some commandos to bypass Hezbollah, and landed near the Litani
River. These commandos have little effect on the outcome, for one, once landed they were surrounded by Hezbollah. Luckily for them, the ceasefire was
declared at about the same time. But the point is that the IDF main striking force, the armour column supported by infantry was stop by Hezbollah.
Technically the IDF were still on their side...why? Because (1) the IDF officer was not standing on Lebanese soil (2) the arm of the excavator was
still attached to the excavator that was on Israeli soil in their buffer zone (3) Buffer zone: how much out from the fence is that? Blue lines are
afew feet further out.
Sorry russ. I went to the link you reference to prove Iran's link to al-CIA-duh and it's quoting the 9/11 (sham) commission.
question for you:
Is that the same commission that says inept pilots? with boxcutters hit the twin towers at speeds 757's are incapable of at sea level?.. and they did
so with computer-guided precision.?.. mbe you should check out pilots for 9/11 truth and see how many of those guys say they could even do that....
guess what not ONE pilot says he could do it first passs and probably not then 'dead center' it. btw some of those pilots have lots of hours in the
exact type of Boeing
Is this the same 9/11 commission who fails to even mention the third WTC tower (#7) that also fell straight into it;s footprint that day? ahem,
exactly like a controlled demolition should?
THAT's the 9/11 commision your quoting as the expert on Iranian / al-cia-duh links
So by your mentality, trimming a tree and cutting weeds on the border gives Lebanon the right to kill an Israeli? If my neighbor's property had a
tree disturbing my side of the property I'm going to trim it no matter what and that is MY right legally under the boundries laws of my country's
Are you also aware those fences are electrified and it was only a matter of time the tree, weeds and long grass below could cause a fire? Even we
have back burning towards the end of our winters due partly due to the electrical fields near rail tracks. If you think the Israelis wanted a better
view or put up cameras on their side of the border then they can and will. If Lebanon wanted to do the same on their side, go forth and do it,
nothing is stopping the Lebs from doing likewise.
Do I need to remind you that just because you see a road between two fences between the Lebanese and Israeli side you think that's the border line?
It's not, in fact the buffer zone goes beyond that fence to a perimeter of afew more feet south so therefore it WAS on Israeli soil.
But Lebanese Information Minister Tareq Mitri claimed the trees were in Lebanese territory. "Lebanon has always expressed its respect for the Blue
Line but always affirmed that the Blue Line is not the international border and there are areas south of the Blue Line that are Lebanese territory,"
Mitri told journalists. "The trees ... were south of the Blue Line but in Lebanese territory," he added.
South of blue line is Israel. North of blue line is Lebanon. Blue line is not a border since there is no agreed border between Israel and Lebanon due
to all the decades of conflict, but nether the less as far as UN goes:
Calls on the parties to fulfil the commitments they have given to respect fully the withdrawal line identified by the United Nations, as set out in
the Secretary-General's report of 16 June 2000 (S/2000/590), to exercise utmost restraint and to cooperate fully with the United Nations and with
Shooting at Israeli soldiers doing their stuff SOUTH of blue line is not respecting this UN-identified line. If Lebanon thinks that border is not
correct then they should settle it with Israel. Shooting first at Israeli soldiers that are not in what is INTERNATIONALLY respected Lebanese
territory can lead to war very quickly.
Lebanon is on the verge of a war from within and right now it's becoming an increasingly viotile suituation as the investigation in to the
assassination of PM Hariri Snr has found Hizbollah are the culprits with the use of Syrian Intelligence.
Numerous things have been going on throughout the ME in the past few days that seems likely it all ties together.
For Hizbollah to watch Lebanon go to war with Israel is a plus for Nasrallah but the Lebanese people as a whole don't have the stomach for war right
now with Israel. Something is obvious up in Lebanon and this shooting down an IDF soldier was a show...why I don't know because it's not what an
LAF commander would do which brings me back to the question...this commander may be LAF but he's also Hizbollah since many Hizbollah have already
been absorbed in to the LAF to keep their Christian LAF rivalries in check due to their past and present relationship with Israel.

So you can boldly say that he is Hizballah simply because some have joined the ranks of the national army?
I respect your arguments within this thread, but the issue doesn't need to get so technical. Israel was only doing this to harass Lebanon...it's an
IDF are bloodthirsty and they will try anything to start a war which isn't clearly their fault. How else can they test out their new American
weapons? Plus there's the added bonus of water-rich land (oxymoron?) to be captured in Southern Lebanon. Just like you said, if Israel wanted to put
up new cameras, they could. Why cause such commotion and bully around a peaceful country (I'm not considering Hizballah).
The UN has created their blue line, that's fine. Both parties know that the area is very controversial. Israel is simply playing the bully to
Lebanon, and at the same time trying to spark a war they can blame on someone else.
Alas, I guess it is possible that Israel is just doing their best Smokey The Bear impression and they're okay with sacrificing lives, not to mention
a high-ranking officer, in the process. A bit of shelling wouldn't hurt either, I meant this is a potential FIRE we're talking about...
It's a damn tree, just let it be.
Regardless, as a Lebanese Christian, I would like nothing more than Hizballah to GTFO of our country. I hope you're right about the Hariri
No matter what happens, it will be hard to stop us from having fun:
From what I have read.. this question has been asked.. They said they wanted an area that they could keep clear on the other side of the fence. A kind
of buffer zone as I see it.. Lebanon could just plant tall trees right at the fence if it was right on the border..
When a person builds a house .... Do they put it right on the property line?? There are ordinances that force a builder to build a certain distance
from the border....
I find it hilarious, When you lose the argument about the side of the border they are on... You guys then blame them for the placement of the fence..
Any other large leaps of logic you want to make?
