railed about "Israeli Terrorism" and "over reacting" just don't have anything to say about the UN standing by and allowing the UN resolution 1701 to be disregarded.
Wonder if France's presence in the UN Forces encouraged Hezbullahs actions rather than serving to discourage them.
Personally I thing that Israel should voice a loud complaint to the UN and insist that either the UN act or Israel will continue where they left off.
The Lebanese Government's complicity in the initial actions of Hezbullah is becoming known and rather than allowing Hezbullah time to regroup and re-arm Israel should act if the UN won't. The US should make it known that we will stand by and support Israel should another incursion be deemed necessary because the UN forces are not enforcing the resolution.
On Yom Kippur, Oct. 2, 24 hours after the last Israeli soldier left South Lebanon and the day before UNIFIL published its rules of engagement, Hizballah placed roadblocks on all the approaches to the central sector of the South and the entrances to the towns and villages reoccupied by its forces and their rocket units.
These enclaves were declared ?closed military zones.?
DEBKAfile?s exclusive military and Western intelligence sources report that neither the Lebanese army which moved south nor the international peacekeepers of UNIFIL venture to set foot in these enclaves. Nor did they raise a finger to block the first broad-daylight consignment of advanced Iranian weapons to be delivered in Lebanon via Syria since the August 14 ceasefire.
This coordinated Hizballah-Iranian-Syrian ploy has brought into question the point of UN Security Council Resolution 1701 which was to prevent the resumption of hostilities and Hizballah?s rearmament while helping the Beirut government and army assert its sovereignty in the South. It has also made a mockery of the UN Force and its missions.
These developments effectively assign UN Security Council resolution 1701 to the same dustbin as resolution 1559 which ordered Hizballah disarmed.
It is especially noted that the Israeli government has made no military or diplomatic response to these violations, or even informed the public that Hizballah has redeployed in the precise positions from which it blitzed Haifa, Nahariya, Carmiel, Acre and W. Galilee for more than a month.
yup such peacefull intentions
