    Shields: Were UNIFIL Forces Complicit in Ambushing IDF?

    Yamit: There is no doubt in my mind of UNIFIL’s complicity. Israel meaning BB is also complicit in our tepid response. Most of all Bush and Olmert are responsible for the murder of a senior Israeli officer. The silence of the world is deafening, is anyone surprised?

    The Hashmonean: In Zion we trust

    Damaging Imagery Shows UNIFIL Forces Shielding Lebanese Soldiers Attacking the IDF

    The IDF informed UNIFIL UN ’peacekeepers’ of the brush clearing operations which were taking place on the Israeli side of the border with Lebanon in advance. The images clearly show soldiers working with a crane to clear brush. This is how it looked..Light blue capped UNIFIL peacekeepers flying a UN flag appear to be shielding Lebanese soldiers who are prone, aiming automatic weapons & RPGs at the IDF soldiers near the border.The UN forces were supposedly enhanced & put in place by resolution 1701 ending the 2006 war to keep Hezbollah from the border with Israel. They have failed at that mission clearly in general.

    So now what is their purpose? Is it to shield the Lebanese Army while it opens up with automatic sniper fire on IDF soldiers in ambush!? Is it to allow the Lebanese to fire RPGs at us while we cannot respond lest the world go insane because a UN Peacekeeper / Human Shield was hurt or killed??

    Where is Ban-Ki Moon?

    * Where is US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice?
    * Where is the UN Security Council which only convenes emergency sessions to CONDEMN Israel?
    * Where is our only ally the United States of America who helped negotiate & force this UNIFIL farce in the 1st place in 2006?

    They have all been very quiet today. A stark contrast to their usual rush to judgment statements when it comes time to smear the State of Israel. More

      Israel: our borders are fluid

      An attack by the US-armed Lebanese army on the IDF, which left one officer dead, highlights the issue of borders.

      Israeli troops operated within what Israel considers our sovereign borders. International agreements also recognize those borders.

      Over the years, Israeli governments abandoned several square miles of sovereign Israeli land. For expediency, the actual border was demarcated well into Israeli territory. Much of our internationally recognized land, thus, appeared out of the border fence. Not in a single instance had Israel similarly fenced off the Lebanese land.

      Death of the IDF officer rests upon the government traitors who de facto surrendered the land which we own de jure. The Lebanese had simply defended what is de facto their land.

      August 4, 2010
      Defense Minister against Jewish state

      The Israeli government, which insists that Palestinians recognize our state as Jewish (as if we need their recognition), would do well to ask the same of its core members.

      Ehud Barak pushed the Labor Party faction in the government to vote against deporting illegal immigrants with children.

      In a dysfunctional government divided like the Knesset along party lines, Barak defends the rights of illegal immigrants to undermine our state’s Jewishness.

    3. Laura says:

      The media was also complicit as they were tipped off in advance of the Lebanese provocation.

      It’s a really sick state of affairs that the world community supports the barbarians against the good guys.

      The world community are also barbarians, just a different sort.

      From Wikipedia

      In the context of war, perfidy is a form of deception, in which one side promises to act in good faith (e.g. by raising a flag of surrender) with the intention of breaking that promise once the enemy has exposed himself (e.g. by coming out of cover in order to capture the surrendering forces).
      [edit] Military protocol

      The practice is specifically prohibited under the 1977 Protocol I Additional to the Geneva Conventions of 12 August 1949, which states:
      “ Article 37.-Prohibition of perfidy

      1. It is prohibited to kill, injure or capture an adversary by resort to perfidy. Acts inviting the confidence of an adversary to lead him to believe that he is entitled to, or is obliged to accord, protection under the rules of international law applicable in armed conflict, with intent to betray that confidence, shall constitute perfidy. The following acts are examples of perfidy:
      (a) The feigning of an intent to negotiate under a flag of truce or of a surrender;
      (b) The feigning of an incapacitation by wounds or sickness;
      (c) The feigning of civilian, non-combatant status; and
      (d) The feigning of protected status by the use of signs, emblems or uniforms of the United Nations or of neutral or other States not Parties to the conflict.
      2. Ruses of war are not prohibited. Such ruses are acts which are intended to mislead an adversary or to induce him to act recklessly but which infringe no rule of international law applicable in armed conflict and which are not perfidious because they do not invite the confidence of an adversary with respect to protection under that law. The following are examples of such ruses: the use of camouflage, decoys, mock operations and misinformation.

      Yes, I wonder what Ban Ki Moon has to say about the United Nations’ participation in a war crime that has customarily been punishable by death on the spot. Per the Lieber Code of 1863,

      101. While deception in war is admitted as a just and necessary means of hostility, and is consistent with honorable warfare, the common law of war allows even capital punishment for clandestine or treacherous attempts to injure an enemy, because they are so dangerous, and it is so difficult to guard against them.

    6. So now what is their purpose? Is it to shield the Lebanese Army while it opens up with automatic sniper fire on IDF soldiers in ambush!? Is it to allow the Lebanese to fire RPGs at us while we cannot respond lest the world go insane because a UN Peacekeeper / Human Shield was hurt or killed??

      When a Lebanese sniper opens up on the IDF, just lay a barrage of 155 mm shells on the offending position. The presence of UN corpses, in addition to making the world a cleaner place, will be clear and convincing proof of the UN’s complicity in an act of perfidy–a word that Israel should use at every opportunity to underscore the enemy’s reprehensible violation of the Geneva Convention.

    7. Ed D says:

      I am so irate that I started drinking. I am not so angry with the Lebonese as I am with the Israeli commanders. Like Bill said, a barrage of 155′s and helicopter rockets for about an hour, would send the message. I am very tired of the tit for tat attitude.

      SCREW THE USA!!!!! YAMIT

      U.S.: Lebanese fire on Israeli troops was totally unjustified
      U.S. State Department assigns blame for clash that left one Israeli officer, two Lebanese soldiers and a journalist dead, after Israeli
      disappointment with ‘neutral’ U.S. response the previous day.
      By Natasha Mozgovaya, Barak Ravid and The Associated Press

      Israeli officials expressed disappointment on Tuesday with the U.S.’s “neutral” response to the shooting incident, in calling on both sides to show restraint. The U.S.’s failure to assign blame on Tuesday prompted Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren to hold talks with senior administration officials, demanding a harsher response.

      Crowley did point the finger at the Lebanese army, but was careful to voice support for the Lebanese side as well, saying “we support the government of Lebanon. We support efforts by Lebanon to increase its ability to exercise its sovereignty over its entire country.”

      “We appreciate the work of the United Nations both to hold this meeting today, you know, to create the cease-fire yesterday. We’re going to be working intensively to see that tensions along this border are eased.?”

      Israel blames U.S., France for arming Lebanon
      United States has given Lebanon approximately $400 million over the past year to purchase arms, despite Israel’s objections.
      By Barak Ravid and Shlomo Shamir

      The United States has given Lebanon approximately $400 million over the past year to purchase arms, despite Israel’s objections. France has also sent a great deal of weaponry to Lebanon, including advanced anti-tank missiles.

      Israel is expected to ask the U.S. Congress to limit its approval of financial aid to Lebanon for arms purchases.
