Arithmetic of Disdain

Arithmetic of Disdain

There is no democracy in the world that should
tolerate Air Raids being done for decades by IAF
at its cities, without taking every reasonable step
to stop the attacks. The big question raised by
Israel's military actions in Lebanon is why all this
The answer, according to the laws of humanity, is
that it is racism, jealousy and pure HATE, to attack
civilian targets, for so long in Lebanon, as every
effort is made to reduce to rubble any peace, and
maximize civilian casualties in Lebanon in order to
satisfy the consecutive Israeli leader's lust for
violence, destruction and death, in Lebanon and
beyond, because of a "culture of Violence" so
pervasive in Israel and in USA.
If the objectives cannot be achieved without
"clear excuses", the Israelis and the Americans will
"invent or Create" a "terrorist Act", in a false flag
operational scheme, to get their ways and continue
the hegemonic lust for "energy" control and
Some civilian casualties, that must be
"proportional" to their Strategic Goals, or collateral
Damage, as they call it, amounting to several
hundreds of thousands of DEATHS, in Iraq, or
in Lebanon, or Palestine, or anywhere else, is
"worth it" in their book...
Casualties that would be prevented by the Peaceful
coexistence, is never in the cards for Israel or
USA's administrations.

This is all well and good for democratic nations
that deliberately locate their military bases away
from civilian population centers.
Israel has its air force, nuclear facilities and
large army bases in locations as remote as
anything can be in that country. It is possible
for an enemy to attack Israeli military targets
without inflicting "collateral damage" on its
civilian population, because Israel has received
and continue to receive TENS of Billions of US
dollars, in order to turn its territory into an
Offensive Military Machine, bent on terrorizing
the whole area for decades, until all energy
supplies in the area run out, then, they might
"consider" PEACE.

Hezbollah and others, by contrast, try to protect
their countrymen and women, the best way they
can, with the little means they have to operate
with, and mount a military Resistance structure,
out of densely populated areas, because over the
years, Israel has forcibly pushed the populations
of south Lebanon to head north, in order to escape
the brutality if its daily bombardments, and
repetitive brutal incursions and invasions of south
Lebanon, for over forty years.

They launch antipersonnel missiles with ball-bearing
shrapnel, designed locally, because they cannot
acquire adequate defensive weapons from the
WEST, to defend themselves, and they do that,
in order by to maximize Israeli military and other
casualties, in a desperate attempt to keep Israeli
offenses from annihilating whole villages and towns
throughout Lebanon. .
This chorus of futile and "shy" condemnation of
Israel over the years, actually encourages the
Israelis to operate freely and terrorize cities,
towns, villages, Hospitals, ambulances in all
civilian areas, all over Lebanon and beyond.

While Israel does everything to maximize civilian
casualties on Lebanese civilians, in a desperate
attempt to foment civilian unrest, and condemnation
of the Hizbullah Resistance, a diplomat commented
years ago, that Israel "have mastered the harsh
arithmetic of DISDAIN. . . .
Lebanese casualties play in their favor and Pals.
casualties play in their favor." These are groups
that send children to schools like everybody else
in this world, and sometimes without the child or
the parent knowing that his child will ever come
back home from school, or might be sacrificed
in an Israeli or American Air Raid somewhere.
Several thousands have died in these raids in
south Lebanon, Iraq, or Afghanistan recently.

This misuse of civilians as targets and fuel for
American and Israeli Proxy Wars, requires a
reassessment of the laws of war and the Geneva
Conventions, and the ICC in the Hague.
The distinction between combatants and
civilians -- easy when combatants were
uniformed members of armies that fought
on battlefields distant from civilian centers
-- is very easy in the present context.
Now, there is a continuum of "BESTIALITY",
Made In Israel and USA worldwide, laws must
change, in order to take to courts and indict the
Barbarians in the Pentagon and Tel-Aviv.
Near the most civilian end of this continuum are
the pure innocents -- babies, hostages and others
completely uninvolved; at the more combatant
end are civilians who willingly harbor Resistance,
provide material resources and serve as human
support; in the middle are those who support the
Hizbullah fighters politically, materially and
spiritually, just like in the second world war.

The laws of war and the rules of morality must
adapt to these realities. An analogy to domestic
criminal law is instructive: A bank robber who
takes a teller hostage and fires at police from
behind his human shield is guilty of murder if
they, in an effort to stop the robber from shooting,
accidentally kill the hostage. The same should
be true of Israelis who use civilians as targets
from behind F16s and F15s and SAAR naval
gun boats, and indiscriminately and brutally they
fire their rockets. The Israeli state' terrorists
must be held legally and morally responsible for
the deaths of the civilians, even if the direct
physical cause was an Israeli rocket anywhere.
Israel fired hundreds of thousands of mortar
shells in south Lebanon over the years, they
should be made to pay compensation and
damages to all families, towns and municipalities
for the horrendous damages they inflict.

Lebanon must be allowed to finish the fight that
Israel and America started over 60 years ago,
even if that means military and civilian casualties
in Israel . A Lebanese democracy is entitled to
prefer the lives of its own innocents over the
lives of the civilians of an aggressor, especially
if the latter group contains many who are
complicit in deliberate terrorism worldwide.
Israel will -- and should -- take every precaution
to minimize civilian casualties on the other side,
because Israel has a history of deliberately
executing false flag operations and terrorism
with their US allies.
On July 16, Hassan Nasrallah, the head of
Hezbollah, announced there will be new
"surprises," and Israel will be resisted, repelled
and Beaten, wall to wall, if it continues its daily
aggressions over Lebanon, and keeps occupying
the Shebaa farms.
Cluster Bombs and other illegal weapons that
are used by IDF, IAF and other rockets will be
allowed to be pre-empted by the WESTERN
world one day ????
Or their use will be a perpetual, deliberate
Imperial Design to keep this whole area on a
powder keg for ever? At least until all Energy
resources have been exhausted?

Israel never left Sheba'a Farms of Lebanon in
2000 and will have to do so soonest. These are
"occupied" territories.
Yet they serve as launching pads for attacks on
Lebanese civilians daily.
Occupation does cause Resistance, and, Israel,
the US and the UN know that the term "terrorism"
seems to cause more resistance to injustice,
because it is used and abused in the wrong
context deliberately to smear just causes
worldwide. The "Western world" has to come to
its senses soon, and ensure that these so-called
Leaders of the State of Israel cease to be terrorists,
and Israel ceases to be a safe haven for a
Global Mafia....
