can you believe Kofi Anan accuesd Israel of targeting the UN post???

Fern R said...

Any word about whether this article claiming that Hamas/PLO/Whatever-they're-called-these-days is ready to stop fighting and give Gilad Shalit back has any truth behind it?

A Frum Idealist--Sadly, yes. Nothing surprises me about the UN anymore. That statement is in the same category as claims that Israel is secretly using chemical weapons against the Palestinians.

Kofi Anan is on Drugs ! He has had a hard time with it lately. LOL


Kofi= me monkey
Anan= (fleeting) cloud

Just saw two retired American Generals (with non-Jewish last names) on the news who commented that it was ridiculous to say that Israel would deliberately target a UN installation, and the incident was no doubt a mistake, and further noting that mistakes happen in war. One General also noted that it is disturbing that the UN Secretary General would display such an obvious anti-Israel bias. These Generals really "get it". I hope more people like them continue to publicly speak up. The UN might as well be the European Union the way Anan speaks. I am disgusted with them, but that's nothing new.

amsh: You beat me to it! I've been calling him "the monkey" all week!

Y'all should read the Israeli ambassador to the U.N.'s response, though...basically, it's "Kofi, you're a Jew-hating idiot."

Actually Debka explains why Israel might have targeted the UN post.

The inadvertent Israeli air strike revealed the fact that the UN force in Lebanon includes Chinese observers. One was killed along with an Austrian, a Canadian and a Finn. The presence of Chinese observers keeping an eye on the combat in South Lebanon has never before been reported.

Our intelligence experts compare the incident to the inadvertent US bombardment which wrecked the Chinese embassy in Belgrade in 1998 (picture), killing a number of Chinese “diplomats.” It was discovered that from that building the Chinese had operated sophisticated surveillance to track the performance of American warplanes, missiles and smart bombs.

The Khaim observer post was located near Hizballah positions and training facilities in the eastern sector, where the IDF has launched the next stage of its campaign against Hizballah in southern Lebanon.
