The war against just about everybody else.

Because of my new job I have not really had much time to reflect on recent events in Lebanon, where the Israeli component of the worldwide Muslim war against just about everybody else is in a new phase. Today, about eighty rockets were fired at Israel by Hezbollah from inside Lebanon. Nine Israeli army reservists were killed and two homes suffered direct hits. According to CTV News over 80 rockets hit several towns. "There was a lot of blood."
In Lebanon the Israeli airforce is reputed to have killed 17 people. Of those who were killed it is not known how many were Hezbollah terrorists and how many were non-combatant Muslims who were not allowed to leave their homes by Hezbollah, so the media would not miss another opportunity to decry Israeli air attacks on innocent Muslim civilians. No doubt there was a lot of blood there also.
In the Afghani theatre of the Muslim war against just about everybody else a Canadian soldier was killed in a road accident. Four other Canadian soldiers were killed in combat a few days before that. And federal Liberal defence critic Ujjal Dosanjh MP has stated that he would prefer it if the Canadian Forces in Afghanistan were to concentrate more on reconstruction efforts than on combat. Mr. Dosanjh, with all due respect, is a blithering, blathering idiot.
Meanwhile an unarmed Canadian Forces UN Peacekeeper was killed when his post was bombed by Israeli jets . Why was that? Hezbollah was using the area adjacent to the compound to launch rockets at Israelis, that's why. I don't support the Israelis targeting of UN observation posts, but once the shooting war started it was irresponsible of the UN to leave unarmed observers in harm's way.
And then there is Qana. It now appears to be another Jenin massacre fable brought to us by the friendly propaganda folks of Hezbollah and propagated by compliant liberal media. And Reuters is busy trying to explain why it doctored photos of scenes of Israeli bombing destruction to make it look more devastating that it is. And Mark M. commenting at Small Dead Animals notes the photographer who brought us the trophy photos from Qana photos is none other than ...... ta da .... Adnan Hajj, who took the doctored Reuters photo. Encroyable, mais non?
Coalition soldiers serving in Iraq continue to be killed by Muslims engaged in that part of the war against just about everybody else. Everybody else seems to include sizeable portions of the Muslim population who are deliberately targetted by suicide bombers. Is there anyone they wouldn't blow up to further their cause? Just asking?
In the Sudan the murder and enslavement of non-Muslims by Muslims goes on and on and on. The UN debates, deliberates and denounces, but distressingly does dick all defending against despicable Islamic diehard dastards.
Whew. Glad I'm too busy to focus on all this stuff. David Warren quoted from a Hamas suicide bomber yesterday in his column A Middle Way:
"My message to the loathed Jews is that there is no god but Allah, we will chase you everywhere! We are a nation that drinks blood, and we know that there is no blood better than the blood of Jews. We will not leave you alone until we have quenched our thirst with your blood, and our children's thirst with your blood. ? In the name of Allah, we will destroy you, blow you up, take revenge against you, purify the land of you, pigs that have defiled our country. This operation is revenge against the sons of monkeys and pigs."Jesus wept blood and well he might.
