Hezbollah’s Twisted Logic

That dashing (said with much sarcasm) group of terrorists who call themselves Hezbollah or Hizbollah if you prefer are such cards.

Their military wing is already classified as being a terrorist group and there is talk of doing the same with their political wing. Rima Fakhry, the only woman in their leadership spoke to the Guardian about their thoughts on peace and Israel.

The Guardian reports the following:

Mrs Fakhry, appointed to Hizbullah’s political council six months ago, said the group would ignore a UN resolution demanding militias in Lebanon disarm: “We keep our weapons because Israel occupies Shebaa Farms, we still have captives in Israeli jails and Israel is still practising violations against us.”

Actually the UN feels differently about this, but old Rima lives in a different world where she thinks that it is ok to attack Israel but is shocked that there would be an response or ill feelings about this.

Israel accuses Hizbullah of aiding violent Palestinian resistance to Israeli rule and terrorism attacks against citizens of the Jewish state.

Here is where her logic is about to get fuzzy.

Mrs Fakhry said: “We have no involvement in Palestine. We have strong feelings towards Palestine, if we can, we can help a lot.

Ok, so she just said that they have no involvement, but would like to help. No involvement, but would like to help. Hmm…

“We will send weapons if they need, but there are borders, it is difficult to get the weapons to them.

I see, they would like to help, but it is difficult smuggling weapons across. But Israel’s accusation that a terrorist organization is fomenting violence and dissent is misplaced. In the next graph she realizes that she is in deep.

“We are working for the liberation of Lebanese land. Inside Palestine is the role of Palestinians.”

Right, they want nothing to do with anything outside of Lebanon. But then she goes on to say the following.

She said she could not see a time when Lebanon and Israel could coexist peacefully: “Do you imagine one day the wolf and the sheep will live in peace? This is only in Walt Disney [films] maybe.”

And then when you think that maybe she hasn’t made her point she adds to it.

Mrs Fakhry said her group believes in the destruction of Israel and expulsion of tens of thousands of Jews: “This is a hope, a long-term strategy.

“Israelis don’t have a right to stay in Palestine, the state of Israel is an illegal state.

“One day the Palestinians will destroy Israel and return to their land.”

Bottom line: organizations that want to operate within a legitimate framework within the international community that advocate the destruction of other nations and work towards that goal should be viewed as terrorist groups and the US/Britain/Israel and other peace loving nations should do what they can to marginalize their influence and hopefully make it impossible for them to continue to exist.
