Comments Comments Off on Representative Cynthia McKinney Watch: McKinney Trails in Georgia Democrat Primary in Early Returns



Armed Palestinian women, members of the Popular Resistance Committees, protest against Israel’s operations in the Gaza Strip and Lebanon, in Gaza City, Tuesday, July 18, 2006. Israel’s two-front offensive against Islamic militants began on June 25 when Hamas-linked guerrillas in the Gaza Strip carried out a cross-border attack on a military outpost in Israel, killing two soldiers and capturing one. Lebanon’s Hezbollah guerrillas joined the fray on July 12, attacking a military patrol on the border in northern Israel, killing three soldiers and capturing two.

Guardian: United States to Israel: you have one more week to blast Hizbullah

Bush ‘gave green light’ for limited attack, say Israeli and UK sources

The US is giving Israel a window of a week to inflict maximum damage on Hizbullah before weighing in behind international calls for a ceasefire in Lebanon, according to British, European and Israeli sources.

The Bush administration, backed by Britain, has blocked efforts for an immediate halt to the fighting initiated at the UN security council, the G8 summit in St Petersburg and the European foreign ministers’ meeting in Brussels.

“It’s clear the Americans have given the Israelis the green light. They [the Israeli attacks] will be allowed to go on longer, perhaps for another week,” a senior European official said yesterday. Diplomatic sources said there was a clear time limit, partly dictated by fears that a prolonged conflict could spin out of control.

US strategy in allowing Israel this freedom for a limited period has several objectives, one of which is delivering a slap to Iran and Syria, who Washington claims are directing Hizbullah and Hamas militants from behind the scenes.

A week? Possibly but the lefty Europeans and whining Muslims are already crying “uncle.” Remember Hamas and Hzbollah provoked Israel – but watch the spin in the Islamic media.

President Bush should give free rein to the Israeli military since they are fighting for the USA as well. Hezbollah is a proxy for Iran and Syria. Israel has a right to bloody them up and eliminate them as a threat.


Israelis sleep inside a shelter in the northern Israeli city of Haifa, late July 18, 2006. Israeli warplanes battered Lebanon on Tuesday, killing 31 people, and more Hizbollah rockets hit northern Israel, killing one, with no sign that diplomacy would halt the week-old conflict any time soon.

Flap handicaps that the countdown towards a cease-fire will begin when Condoleezza Rice touches down in Israel.

The Jerusalem Post: Ahmadinejad promises Muslims will ‘rejoice’ soon

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday promised a “rejoicing” for Muslims in the Middle East “soon,” the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

Speaking to university officials in the town of Mashhad, Ahmadinejad said the “volcano of rage” at the “arrogant powers” was “on the verge of eruption.”

Referring to escalating violence in Lebanon and northern Israel, he was quoted as saying, “The Zionists themselves have realized that they have launched a risky move and are aware that the flame of the fury of the regional states will set them ablaze.”

And what “rejoicing” might this be?

Hezbollah is getting its ASS kicked militarily by Israel and Israel will not stop until Hezbollah is disarmed and neutered as a force in southern Lebanon.

Iran will NOT dare enter the war against Israel by, say, firing, a missile because this will be an open invitation for Israel and the United States to bomb their nuclear facilities at Natanz.

It is doubtful that Iran would even come to the aid of Syria should Israel bomb Hezbollah there.

Ahamdinejad has a big mouth but no substance.
