Terror Chief Nasrallah openly discusses funding, supporting and exalting Terror.
There’s a lot of amusement for me when I read about Europe and how they try and walk a fine line regarding Terrorists. They call them militants, insurgents, fighters, dissidents, they’ll call them anything but Terrorists. That is of course until such an insurgent, militant, dissident etc actually blows up some of their citizens, egad.. At that point media, pundits all clamour about to talk about the vile.. Terrorists.
So it is with amusement that I watch Hezbollah, the "political" party with the so called "dissident" wing of armed "insurgents" happily opining about their "militant" actions in the open, and brash support of Palestinian Terrorism.
It walks like a terrorist, talks like a terrorist, acts like a terrorist, is classified as terrorist by much of the UN, Canada, the US, Israel, Europe..
Grab a cold beer, "it’s Militant time"
AP via JPOST: Nasrallah admits to funding terror
The leader of Hizbullah, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, acknowledged giving militant Palestinian factions financial and political support but denied arming them, in an interview published Thursday.
Nasrallah did not name the groups in an extensive interview with the daily As-Safir, but Hizbullah is known to have close ties to Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
"They (the Palestinians) have fighters and expertise. They can produce a missile by logging on to the Internet," Nasrallah said.
"What they need is financial, political and media support. And we do not deny that we help them on those fronts," he said.
What’s this? You can make rockets by logging onto the Internet?
Hmm, in that case I’d really like a Ferrari, let me log on I’m sure there are instructions somewhere.. If my friends ask I’ll tell them I made it! I have AOL!
It was the first time that the Hizbullah leader, a staunch supporter of the Palestinian cause, publicly acknowledged funding Palestinian terrorist groups, an accusation made by Israeli officials.
Nasrallah said his group used to channel weapons to Palestinian militants but stopped in December 2001 after Jordanian authorities arrested three Hizbullah members carrying Katyusha rockets from Syria, bound for the West Bank.
"After the Jordan incident and arrest of a number of our brothers, the Palestinians told us, ‘This is costing you politically and is a burden for the fighters. Send us the money and we will take care of it ourselves,"’ Nasrallah said, adding that the Palestinian militants got their weapons from "the mafia and Israeli officers."
Please, no more weapons shipments. This is a burden, we have Internet access and European monitors on our borders, we don’t need your weapons, send cash now instead and all our hands are clean. This is UN logic if ever I have seen it! If we need weapons we’ll buy them from Putin.
Nasrallah has repeatedly called on various Palestinian factions to step up their armed uprising against Israel as the only way to liberate their country from Israeli occupation. But he has denied past Israeli accusations that the Iran-backed Hizbullah was directing suicide bombings and other attacks on Israelis, or that it was a key sponsor of Palestinian violence.
We send weapons, cash, ‘fighters’, rhetoric, support and everything else, but you see it all goes Fedex.. It is really Fedex that supports terrorism, not Hezbollah. We are a political party with some minor associations to Terrorist shipping companies, there is a BIG difference, just ask Iran.
His latest remarks take on added significance with the emergence last month of a Hamas-led Palestinian government. The United States and the European Union cut off funds to the Palestinian Authority because of Hamas’ refusal to renounce violence and recognize Israel. Nasrallah said Hamas should not have to recognize Israel.
"The people gave (Hamas) their confidence based on their commitment not to recognize Israel," he said.
Don’t blame Hamas, blame it on the people. Really, fantastic stuff Hassan! Waitress can I have another round? I’m almost done with this Militant.
Will the real Lebanon please stand up and take care of this pond scum already? You are harboring Terrorists.
