Surburban Warriors

Australia’s Sunday Herald-Sun published some astonishing photos of Hezbollah's suburban warriors:

Suburbia

The Herald-Sun explains:

The images, obtained exclusively by the Sunday Herald Sun, show Hezbollah using high-density residential areas as launch pads for rockets and heavy-calibre weapons.

Dressed in civilian clothing so they can quickly disappear, the militants carrying automatic assault rifles and ride in on trucks mounted with cannon.

The photographs, from the Christian area of Wadi Chahrour in the east of Beirut, were taken by a visiting journalist and smuggled out by a friend….

The Melbourne man who smuggled the shots out of Beirut and did not wish to be named said he was less than 400m from the block when it was obliterated.

"Hezbollah came in to launch their rockets, then within minutes the area was blasted by Israeli jets," he said.

"Until the Hezbollah fighters arrived, it had not been touched by the Israelis. Then it was totally devastated.

The frustrating thing is that these stories don't get reported by the MSM. The MSM is aiding hezbollah and other terrorists with its coverage.

That's an anti-aircraft gun, not a rocket.

And it's probably protecting a neighborhood as Isreili planes killing at least 56 sleeping people in a Lebanese village Sunday.

You people are JUST as biased and slanted as your enemy.

That is an anti-aircaft gun not a rocket.

You are missing the much bigger picture of staged photos of the "victms." Check out http://eureferendum.blogspot.com/2006/07/milking-it.html for details showing the same "worker" posing with dead bodies for HOURS with different "journalists."

Talk about the media swallowing it hook line and sinker.

Warning, pictures are somewhat graphic ( dead children paraded around)

thats a bit of 'dishonest reporting'
because, firstly that is an anti-aircraft gun.
and secondly, 'firing rockets from east beirut' does not make any sense, and betrays the ignorance of the reporter.... - becuse a rocket fired from east beirut would not have the range to reach israel..

Israel didnt kill 56 sleeping people, Hezbolla did. By storing munitions in the basement. Israel warned residents of the area to flee. They chose otherwise. Israel hit the area around midnite, after over 150 katyushas had been fired into Israel from that village alone, despite the villagers saying there 'are only children playing here' (funny games for children to play, no?). The building only collapsed 7 hours later. Now isn't that a strange reportage story that didnt get reported by those who don't want it reported!

These posts (not comments) are from a Lebanese Forces blog...


May Hezbollah and Nasrallah rot in hell for what they are doing. If Israelis were war criminals, Hezbollah are ruthless killers.

Pray tell me, were you counting on the public outcry to force the Israelis into a cease fire and thus claim your victory??? Like what happened in April 1996??? Is this what you were aiming at when you fired rockets from the vicinity of the UN post not three days ago, causing a retaliation that killed four UN soldiers???

The outcry wasn’t strong enough…lets do a Qana II…it will have an impact for sure…it never fails…people are so gullible…we get the cease fire and come out as heroes…and in the way we cause Israel to suffer humiliation…

Some victory for Lebanon Mr. Nasrallah…

"That is an anti-aircaft gun not a rocket."

I'd hasten to inform you that it states 'images' in the plural in the above article.
