HPer Hypocrisy on Display

I know it feels like we've been picking on this "barefoot" guy a lot lately but I wanted to show another one of his posts:

I'm sure you are all very familiar with the use of human shields, how terrorists fight among the civilian population so that way it is the fault of their enemies that those civilians die and not the terrorists who started the fighting.

When it comes to Hezbollah, though, the back and forth is so hypocritical as to be astonishing. On the one hand, some HPers like the one above will give the impression that Hezbollah is a bunch of guys meeting in a basement planning their next token rocket attack. All the civilians around them are not only unaware of Hezbollah's presence but they have nothing to do with what's going on.

But on the other hand people like Sharmine Narwani will tell us that Hezbollah is part of the Lebanese government and therefore should not be considered a terrorist organization. One little problem, though: How did Hezbollah get to be part of the government? Answer: They were elected. By the people. Assuming of course Lebanon is as democratic as they also claim it is.

This just goes to show the multiple levels of hypocrisy among anti-Zionists. When it suits them, Hezbollah and Hamas are not armies numbering in the thousands of members who enjoy widespread support among the people. When it suits them, they are. Say what you will about Israel supporters, but they at least have one worldview and stick with it.

  1. There is no reason Israel should leave Lebanon as it is the event of another a war. Those who seek to destroy Israel must pay the ultimate price. Changed demographics in a part of their country and the loss of their territory forever. This is victor's justice. If Israel wants lasting peace, it must impose it without mercy on the enemy in the future.
