Funny how the blood is running down the streets between the Sunnis and the Shiites in Lebanon, and both sides find it still convenient to blame Israel. In the last Lebanese War, they blamed the "isolationist Christians", those "neo-Crusader" allies of the West. Today, the blame the "enemy Israel". They don't even blame each other, even as they are massacring one another.
Hassan Nasrallah is an agent for Iran and Syria, and Saad Hariri is an agent for Saudi Arabia and the US, but as they lash out at each other - without no involvement whatsoever by Israel - they channel their mutual accusations through the Israeli boogeyman. It is simple and convenient: The brainwashed Lebanese readily agree since their brains have lost all sense of simple reason.
Nasrallah says the the action by the Siniora government and Hariri are "in support of Israel", whereas Hariri rebuts Nasrallah by concluding his statement with "Israel is the enemy".
The second interesting thing in the new Lebanese civil war is that the Christians this time are on the sidelines when it comes to the violence, which goes to show that the first Lebanese war of 1975-1990 was indeed not a "civil" war since the Christians at the time fought the Syrians and the Palestinians primarily and those among the Muslim Lebanese who allied themselves with Yasser Arafat and his Syrian-Palestinian hordes.
This time around, it is truly a CIVIL WAR between Lebanon's Shiites and Sunnis, modeled along the Iraqi model.
This time around, it is not about the Maronites trying to protect their "domination" or deprive Yasser Arafat of his dream of returning to his beloved Falestine. It is not about the "Crusaders" and the "Imperialists" and all that stuff of 1970s vintage. It is about pure Islamic-Arab violence aimed at itself, even under the veneer of civility that the Wahhabi billionaire Hariri projects with his fancy suits, or the religious and divine crap that Hezbollah's Nasrallah projects from under his turban.
I hope that the Christians don't get involved in the violence - neither on the Geagea side nor on the Aoun side. It will be truly be suicide this time around.
