UN Observers in Lebanon


Recommended Posts

Interesting piece of information from UNIFIL - United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon


From July 27 press release:


Paragraph 2:

"It was also reported that Hezbollah fired from the vicinity of four UN positions at Marwahin, Alma Ash Shab, Bra****, and At Tiri."

Originally found in an article here:


Read for yourself the UNIFIL press releases that have warned how Hezbollah has exploited their posts, and even shot their observers.

Says the UNIFIL press release on the very day of this tragedy: "It was also reported that Hezbollah fired from the vicinity of four UN positions..." Says the UNIFIL report of 20 July: "Hezbollah firing was also reported from the immediate vicinity of the UN positions in Naquora and Maroun Al Ras areas..." And so on.

Retired Canadian Major General Lewis Mackenzie said he recently received emails from the Canadian peacekeeper killed at the UN post on Wednesday, who'd told him Hezbollah was using his post as cover, too.

"He was describing the fact that he was taking fire within, in one case, three metres of his position for tactical necessity, not being targeted," Mackenzie said.

"Now that's veiled speech in the military. What he was telling us was Hezbollah soldiers were all over his position and the IDF were targeting them. And that's a favourite trick by people who don't have representation in the UN. They use the UN as shields knowing that they can't be punished for it."

Despite having rockets fired from right near them, the UN will still claim Israel had no cause to bomb anywhere near them. Gee, I'm shocked.

Somehow, Israel gets the blaim, and Hez gets no blaim for using UN positions as cover.

The amazing thing is before this conflict, I wasn't very pro-Israel. Israel has certainly done some dispicable things. It's just watching how Jenin, the suicide bombers, and now this Lebanon situation are covered across the world is forcing me to start considering that there may in fact be an anti-Jewish mindset in much of the world.

I think I know how this is going to turn out. The UN is getting ready to start crying to the US to come in and take over their "peacekeeping observers" and then will issue verbal slaps for how they would andle the situation better. Where have we seen this before?
