No doubt this one will get wide play in the corporate media. “A
Hizbollah fighter captured by Israel has told interrogators he received training
in Iran and arrived there on a flight from Syria, a tape of the interrogation
released by the Israeli army showed on Monday…. During questioning the
man also confessed to taking part in the cross-border raid on July 12 in which
two Israeli soldiers were captured, the incident which sparked the current conflict,”
reports, or rather stenographs, Reuters.
Such a nice little package, all tied up with ribbon. Now we have “evidence”—by
way of electrodes attached to testicles, no doubt—that Iran trains Hezbollah
and Syria delivers these terrorists to carry out their dastardly deeds, for
instance defending their country from hundreds of Israeli border incursions
since they were kicked out in 2000. Of course, the Lebanese are not supposed
to resist occupation and the brutality of the Israelis and simply throw their
bodies under the blades of massive bulldozers (made in the USA) and the treads
of Merkava tanks.
Note how Reuters simply repeats the lie that Hezbollah violated the border
and “kidnapped” innocent Israeli soldiers. As previously noted here
and elsewhere—although predictably and roundly ignored in the corporate
media—the Israeli soldiers were captured as they infiltrated the Lebanese
town of Aitaa al-Chaab, part of a larger pattern of not only illegal border
crossings but also the shelling of villages, numerous air raids, attacks on
Lebanese military positions, slaughtering civilians, and setting up installations
on Lebanese soil, violations officially (if not uselessly) reported in letters
from the Chargé d’affaires of the Permanent Mission of Lebanon
to the United Nations addressed to the Secretary-General and the President of
the Security Council. Naturally, none of this is mentioned by the corporate
media as it continues a nauseating barrage of pro-Israel propaganda coupled
with an endless of diet of hit pieces designed to demonize Hezbollah.
In order to understand the magnitude of the above mentioned brazen (and studiously
ignored) crimes against Lebanese sovereignty, simply visit the United Nations
Bibliographic Information System database. The following links point to PDF

Lebanese sovereignty 529 times.
