Drudge linked this morning to an article in Australia’s Herald Sun that displays a series of damning photographs showing Hezbollah terrorists, and their weapons of course, comfortably ensconced in a dense residential neighborhood. The terrorists are dressed in comfy casuals, so that they can easily blend into the crowd.
Hezbollah didn’t end up in neighborhood by accident. This strategic positioning is intended to deter Israel, which loaths civilian casualties, from destroying Hezbollah’s weapons. And if that fails, it’s meant to increase civilian casualties, with the sheeplike Western media pointing the finger of blame at Israel rather than at Hezbollah, where it properly belongs. In other words, Hezbollah is perfectly willing to see Arab civilians, especially children, die if it will make Israel look bad.
