Hassan Shar-Mootah hated his job. It wasn't easy to fool the Israeli Defense Forces and besides, what he wanted them to do was unconscionable, although unless it was done, Hezbollah would soon be done for. Damn! Even sons of apes and pigs can be very clever.
Hassan was in a bunker 200 feet below and contrary to the civilians above, he was quite safe. Maps and demographic surveys lay before him. Hassan's job was to deploy missile launchers next to soft targets in an effort to get Israel to kill civilians. Hezbollah knows that most of the Western Press are photo-op whores and would help in any staging of propaganda photo ops" if only Hassan could just get those pesky Jews to take a taste of his honey pots.
It wasn't easy. Just last Friday The Israeli Air Force carried out 60 air strikes overnight on Hezbollah locations and structures. The targets struck included 37 Hezbollah warehouses and locations, roads, bridges and cars, with just a few civilians killed. Even after 18 days of thousands of Israeli bombs dropped barely more than 421 Lebanese have been killed.
Even when Hezbollah finally thought they struck gold and got Israel to shell a UN position, except for the usual suspects who cry massacre whenever their panties get stained, the rest of the world was not so outraged about the UN deaths as to force the Israelis to accept a cease-fire.
Of course, if were were winning we certainly would not want or need a cease-fire, Hassan thought to himself. Even an uneducated idiot like Hassan knows what the score is when the Israelis refuse to have a cease-fire. Damn, why can't there be leftist morons running the Israeli defense forces. Where is John Murtha when you really need him? Hassan cursed under his breath.
Damn Zionist pigs were getting civilians to leave with leaflets and radio announcements. Hezbollah did all it could to prevent civilians from leaving areas from which they staged rocket attacks against Israel even going so far as to have Hezbollah fighters kill anyone trying to leave.
If Israeli scouts saw anyone entering or leaving a target building they would drop leaflets near the building to get them to leave. Hassan finally got the answer. Keep the residents in lock-down for a few days to escape Israeli detection. Tell them that Israelis are going around killing anyone outside on the street. Then fire rockets from within a few feet of the building. The Israelis wouldn't knowingly fire on dozens of children - they know this is a propaganda war more than anything else. They have to be convinced the building is empty of civilians and is only used to stage rocket attacks.
Ten years ago Hezbollah succeeded in getting 106 civilians killed in what they call the Massacre of Qana. Wouldn't it be a coup if they could do it again in the very same village? Well, Hassan succeeded and Hezbollah was able to stage another "massacre".
There are already cries and whining about the horrible Israelis and why won't they agree to a cease-fire. Imagine you're driving your car and a madman throws his children in front of your car. Imagine further that the police arrest you and the entire world condemns you for your barbarity. Imagine then that they sympathize with the madman because he has lost his children to your "massacre".
If you can allow such an absurd fantasy to take form in your mind, then you have some small inkling of what Israel must be going through.

"Excuse me Captain, we accidentally killed 4 Hezbollah terrorists who were shooting missiles at Haifa."
"What? Sergeant, are you an idiot? Are you trying to purposely save Israeli lives? Now go back and train our rockets on civilians only. Anyone caught actually killing our enemy will be shot!"
How stupid can leftists and Muslims be?
On a more journalistic note, ever since Israel finally decided they would no longer tolerate Hezbollah's taunts, the MSM in America has been waiting to report such a "massacre". Indeed, if this had not happened, the New York Times was preparing a fake massacre to print on its front page. This is certainly a great relief to them. They of course had the headlines prepared, now all they had to do was change the name of the city.
All things beautiful, Grapes Of Wrath' Revisited
UPDATE: Flopping Aces has the Fox news video
Finally, the damning images that prove that Hezbollah terrorist militiamen dressed in civilian clothes, who seem to have gathered an inordinate amount of support in Lebanon, have indeed been using civilian, mostly Christian neighborhoods as shields against Israeli attacks, and hiding and using weapons in a densely populated area.
The exclusive photographs smuggled out of Lebanon, were obtained by the Australian News Ltd. and published by their Sunday Mail here, and Sunday Herald Sun here. Why am I not surprised...
Hot Air reminds us why we fight and why it's important for Israel to remove the evil stain of Hezbollah from Lebanon forever. Warning if you're not a filthy leftist coward or Muslim this video will be almost unbearable to watch and you will swear to yourself you will never watch it again.
The DumbOx [now defunct blog] says "The Qana deaths change nothing, indeed, what is one to do with S.O.B.'s who brainwash their children to consider being a 'human shield' the highest goal in life, with "men" (using the term ironically) who hide behind women and children?"
Next, is a very curious photo in the NY Times. You’ll notice that the ceiling is completely intact, which doesn’t seem to fit with the rubble below it, nor with the body.
Confederate Yankee Blog, Qana Media Coverup?
The more I see about the timeline in Qana, the more I doubt the story being told to us by the world's media.
Katherine Shrader and Kathy Gannon of AP make the strike and its effect seem immediate:
A three-story house on the outskirts of Qana was leveled when a missile crashed into it at 1 a.m. Red Cross officials said 56 were killed and police said 34 children and 12 adult women were among the dead. It was worst single strike since Israel's campaign in Lebanon began on July 12 when Hezbollah militants crossed the border into Israel and abducted two soldiers.
But we know that the immediacy of the collapse given in this timeline to be a false construct. Many hours before this AP story was released, the IDF had already reported that the building did not collapse until 8 A.M.
Red Cross officials said 56 were killed and police said 34 children and 12 adult women were among the dead.
34 children. 12 adult women. Not a single adult male officially listed among them. How strangely asexual these "civilian" families seem to be.
Perhaps the men were not civilians. I am going to take a wild stab here, go out on a limb, stick my neck out and guess that the males were all out manning those missile launchers.
Brent Sadler of CNN reports that the Israeli ordnance did not even hit the building but landed "20 or 30 meters" from the structure.
There was a second strike at other targets far from the collapse building several hours later, and a third strike at around 7:30 in the morning. There too the nearest hit was some 460 meters away, according to the IDF. But first reports of a building collapse came only around 8 am.
Thus there was an unexplained 7 to 8 hour gap between the time of the helicopter strike and the building collapse. Brigadier General Amir Eshel, Head of the Air Force Headquarters, in a press briefing, told journalists that "the attack on the structure in the Qana village took place between midnight and one in the morning. The gap between the timing of the collapse of the building and the time of the strike on it is unclear."
Gen. Eshel appeared genuinely mystified by the gap in time. He "I'm saying this very carefully, because at this time I don't have a clue as to what the explanation could be for this gap," he added. The army's only explanation was that somehow there was unexploded Hezbollah ordnance in the building that only detonated much later.
Michelle Malkin Blog, The Qana smokescreen
First, take a look at mob scenes across the Muslim world this weekend, ostensibly--ostensibly--in response to the civilian deaths in Qana, Lebanon. Angry Muslims from Beirut to Gaza to Lahore are setting fire to American and Israeli flags. Burning effigies of Western leaders. Raising their voices in death chants.
Don Surber, Columnist: Pull out of the UN
Columnist Ezra Levant gets it. He wants the nation to get out of the United Nations, which he sees as being about as effective as a blind baseball umpire. Levant wrote today:"Everyone knows a war is going on in south Lebanon. We don’t need "observers.” It’s on the news every night. We know what started it: Rocket attacks by Hezbollah into northern Israel, and Hezbollah stealing across the border to kidnap Israeli troops. So why were UN observers still there?
euphoric reality, the parade of dead children
The use of dead children for propaganda is nothing new for Islamofascists. Pallywood immortalized one such hoax, known around the world as poor, pathetic Muhommed al-Dura; and the Islamist propaganda machine churns overtime to push the emotional buttons of the Western psyche. By staging dramatic video footage of dead women and children, or better yet, a young pregnant women (a two-fer), they know that with the Western media’s help, they can drum up weeks’ worth of manufactured outrage and condemnation on behalf of their terrorist cause.
The Palestinians have perfected the art of mugging and posing for the camera, able to conjure up ululations of sorrow and grimaces of agony on a moments’ notice. Hollywood’s Oscar winners should be so emotionally versatile. Iraqis, well-trained by the Hussein regime to manipulate the Western media, are masters at it. They’ve perfected the science of freezing dead babies to later parade through the streets for shocked Western photojournalists. Our soldiers are now bearing the brunt of such practised PR campaigns.

"War gives children a distorted view of the real problems adults face. How is little Hussein going to learn to worry about global warming, when his caregiver is launching rockets that spew greenhouse gases? How does he learn to fear second-hand smoke, when Daddy is lighting up half of northern Israel with wildfires? And how will he learn about sharing and understanding, when Israel wants to hog Israel all to itself?”
There is a tendency, including in myself, to see video on TV news as something taken on the fly and a fairly accurate portrayal of what occurred. Please, take the next few minutes to watch this film. You will never see "war" in the middle east again in the same way.
Don’t think for a moment that this has not been in the works for many years to spark a Holy War to gather support against Israel and the U.S.
Iranian owned Hezbollah and Their Tactics
But the average reader may ask, "This is so patently staged, does Hezbollah actually think anyone will believe this nonsense?" The truth of the matter is that although this orchestrated "massacre" will not be taken seriously by any intelligent person, this was not designed for them. This was made for ignorant morons and Muslims who will believe any allegation of atrocity against Israel or the US if just only shown some photos, photoshopped or staged.
