Three Killed, Many Trapped In Haifa Building Collapsed By Hezbollah Rocket Attack

Wow, the international condemnation over this is going to be deafening.

I wonder -- was Israel hiding rocket-firing terrorists in this building? No? Then why was it attacked, I wonder?

Three people were killed and some 40 others were wounded in Haifa on Sunday evening in what was described as the heaviest rocket strike on Israel's third city since the attacks began on July 12.

The strikes came several hours after 12 Israel Defense Forces reservist soldiers were killed and 12 others were wounded, four of them seriously, in a direct hit on an open area in the northern community of Kfar Giladi, as Hezbollah renewed its rocket fire against Israel with an enormous barrage.

Since the fighting began on July 12, 94 Israelis - 58 IDF soldiers and 36 civilians - have been killed.

What the IDF does accidentally, and apologizes in shame for, Hezbollah does deliberately, and celebrates as a "great military victory."

Since Reuters allows Hezbollah propagandists to alter pictures to falsely dramatize strikes on Beirut, will they similarly allow an IDF propagandist to "sweeten" some pictures of the collapsed building? Three people were killed; I'm sure they wouldn't mind if Israelis paraded those corpses over and over to suggest more casuatlies than actually occurred, right?

Via Jewlicious, who notes that many commenters to the Ynet article about Reuters' doctored photo are outraged -- outraged, that is, that anyone would be so uncouth as to point out the maliciously-forged photo. What's a lie here or there in the interests of TRUTH?


Flashback: Berkeley (where else?) grad student (what else?) writes a love poem to Hezbollah.

What is it he particularly likes about Hezbollah? The cowardice, the deliberate murder of civilians, or the causing the deaths of their own people? There's so much to choose from.

I think Shakespeare had an ending couplet to a sonnet that best describes the murder-lovers:

I have called thee fair and thought thee bright
what are black as hell and dark as night.

Big Roundup on Fake Picture: A lot has already been rounded up, of course. But you might be interested to watch a killer expose on "Pallywood," the Palestinian terrorists' propaganda machine, near the end of the post.
