Twin Shocks: Iran Behind Hezbollah Kidnappers; France Dicks Us Over At UN

Iran? Training terrorists? Why, it's almost as if they're part of -- how does one put this? -- some kind of axis of iniquity or something.

Iniquity? Too Biblical. Something simple. Wrongness, baditude. Something like that.

A captured Hezbollah terrorist who took part in the kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers that sparked the war in Lebanon has confessed he received military training in Iran, according to a recording of his interrogation.

Under questioning by Israeli authorities, Hussein Ali Suleiman, 22, revealed he was sent to Iran twice for weapons and explosives instruction, most recently at the end of 2003.

"We went from Beirut to Syria," said Suleiman, whose capture by Israeli forces inside Lebanon was announced by Israel on Sunday.

"We went in Land Rovers, which are recognized as Hezbollah vehicles. We crossed the border to Syria at a military passage."

The Hezbollah terrorist said there were 40 to 50 people in his group and after they crossed from Lebanon into Syria, they were transferred to a bus.

"We were led to a special part of Damascus airport" for a flight to Iran, Suleiman said.

"And your passports were stamped?" his interrogator asked sarcastically.

"We had no passports," replied the militant, who had light bruises on his face and lips.

Light bruises? I certainly hope that no coercive interrogation techniques were used to extract information from a committed terrorist and budding kidnapper.

Suleiman, who spoke in Arabic, said he was trained in Iran in the use of anti-tank and other weapons, explosives and first aid. His second round of training was in anti-tank weapons, which are being used extensively against Israeli forces.

And of course the Iranians are likely training Sunni "insurgents" in IED manufacture.

Meanwhile, the French. As the Eskimos have forty words for snow, the French have forty words for "being a complete douchebag for no good reason."

The French-American alliance at the United Nations over a Mideast cease-fire agreement is crumbling, sources tell FOX News.

The French U.N. delegation has joined with Arab nations and is now calling for a complete and immediate Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon as a condition of any cease-fire, the sources said.

In addition, the French have reportedly agreed with Arab demands that the Lebanese force be accompanied only by UNIFIL, with no international force to be deployed.

Syria, Iran and Hezbollah are pushing to take Lebanon's offer to deploy 15,000 forces into the embattled southern region along with UNIFIL forces to gain stability without an international force there after more than three weeks of intense fighting.

Actually, there's a good reason for them being so French. "International forces" was taken to be synonymous with "French forces," and it seems that, while they want peace, they just don't want it all that much. They'd rather just go back to doing what they do best, sniping at America and mau-mauing Israel into surrendering to terrorists.

Asked what could be done to reignite this failure in diplomacy, Senator John F. Kerry proposed a bold and ambitious new plan: further diplomacy.

What the US wanted was a credible force that could secure Lebanon's southern border. As that force was deployed, Israel would turn over land to it.

The French seemed to agree to this, and then, suddenly, didn't. Like their Arab allies, they seek not any sort of genuine peace, but perpetual turmoil between Israel and its neighbors, to insure that Muslim extremism is turned ever towards Israel, rather than Arab despots or French interests.

The French will, as usual, take the lead role in calling for peace, and criticizing others for not bringing their eloquent calls for peace into practice.
