  1. Actually I have seen both figures from the article which quotes the figures and the actual figures done by the research center. On the other hand you have.... Oh yeah, you have nothing :) And Lahoud is quoting the figures too. :lol:
  2. Well a Christian website actually quoted those poll figures as well..... Hezbollah is rejected according to... an infidel? :lol: Actually Al Gore created the internet :mad: :lol:
  3. I think there's a good reason why you chose to name yourself as Infidel. :lol: The poll by the Beirut Center for Research and Information shows otherwise. And another thing Seymour Hersh, who has met with Nasrallah numerous times also says that Nasrallah is more independent than most think.
  4. Malaysia wants to send 1000 troops as part of the UNIFIL force but so far there is no cleare signal from UN to allow this. But Malaysia's Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar dismissed Gillerman's remarks, saying: "We're going to be on Lebanese territory ... we're not going to be on Israeli territory." http://www.dailystar.com.lb/article.asp?ed...rticle_id=74863
  5. Seymour Hersh had an interesting, although short comment about Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah. Remember that Seymour Hersh actually met up with Sayyid Nasrallah a few times. According to him: SEYMOUR HERSH: ..... I think Nasrallah is his own man. None of us really know. I think he decides what he wants to do. I don't think Syria and Iran control him the way Washington, this White House seems to believe everything comes from Iran. You know, anybody who meets Nasrallah, as I have a couple of times, he's rather formidable. In any case -- http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid...read&tid=25
  6. I'm was thinking of visitng Lebanon later. I am particularly interested in visting Al-Jnoub (Sour, Saidar, Khiyam, etc). Basically the idea is to buy supplies locally (support local businesses) , distributing it to the poor and also helping them rebuild. Would like to live with the locals for a few days as well, if anyone is willing to put me up. You know just be part of the community. Won't stay there long though, just a few days. Bas ana la atakallam al-arabiye jayyid. Also I was told Jnoubi accent is ..... :)

  8. He was martyred in Sjoud I think. There's a video of this.
  9. So why is Israel expanding the ground operation to 30K troops?
  10. Wait a minute, when did I say they were an official part of the Lebanese Army? If they can't even officially have a census, I don't expect something like Hezbollah being officially part of the Army to be officially documented. Besides I don't think they are. The Lebanese say, they are part of the resistance. To you, it's meaningless. To the Lebanese, what you think, .....well....
  11. I got Saniora's quote from Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuad_Saniora
  12. What Fouad Saniora says: With regards to Hezbollah, Siniora has said that "The government considers the resistance a natural and honest expression of the Lebanese people’s national rights to liberate their land and defend their honour against Israeli aggression and threats”.
  13. What about Lahoud's word? SPIEGEL: United Nations Resolution 1559 demands that the army should control the whole country -- up to the border with Israel. Lahoud: It (the army) does that. But it wasn't the army that freed the occupied south of the country, rather it was the resistance which achieved that. Without this resistance Lebanon would still be occupied today.
  14. I think you should recheck you facts. If you shut off Arab oil...oh yes, nothing will happen, gas prices will go down. Don't kid yourself. 13% of US crude oil or other oil related produces comes from Saudi Arabia. 20% of US crude oil or other oil related produces comes from Persian gulf countries. OK so 20% is now a fraction mmmkayyy. Oil is also imported from Nigeria and Algeria. About 12% of USA crude oil or other oil related produces comes from Venezuela. Oh yes another USA friendly country right there. About 30% of USA crude oil or other oil related produces come from Canada and Mexico.
  15. Watch this video: Edward Peck speaks to Democracy Now on Hizbullah following recent crisis outbreak http://play.rbn.com/?url=demnow/demnow/dem...rtsp&start= Watch starting at the 18 minute mark.
  16. I'm curious, if they don't have much night vision, how come even the Golani brigade cannot topple them. At night even!
  17. Katrin, It wasn't Hizballah which did it. Did you finish reading the wikipedia article? Aftermath The responsibility for the bombing is uncertain. Despite the fact that they were not officially an organization until Feburary 1985, many (notably the U.S. government) believe the Hezbollah militant group, backed by Iran and Syria, was responsible for the bombings, as well as the bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut in April of 1983. Hezbollah, Iran and Syria, all staunch opponents of Western support for Israeli occupation of Lebanon, denied any involvement. Several Shia militant groups claimed responsibility for the attacks, and one, the Free Islamic Revolutionary Movement, identified the two suicide bombers as Abu Mazen, 26, and Abu Sijaan, 24.[3] Along with the U.S. Embassy bombing, the barracks bombing prompted the Inman Report, a review of the security of U.S. facilities overseas for the U.S. Department of State. WMD was also believed to be found in Iraq. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/04/21/...in1527749.shtml As for the real people responsible for the suicide bombing in Beirut and affiliation, who knows.
  18. Katrin, You are correct, I have proof that those bad bad man skinned UN observers as you said. I even have links to help you out. Check out this link http://www.guardian.co.uk/israel/comment/0,,1834000,00.html
