Cornered in his rat hole, and hemmed in in South Lebanon by the Lebanese army, the Israeli army, and UNIFIL, Hezbollah's Hassan Nasrallah is now resorting to the old tactics he - and his criminal terrorist-in-chief Imad Mughniyyeh (الله يغمقلو) - used in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s to terrorize all the foreign friends of Lebanon out of the country.
Seven Estonian nationals were kidnapped yesterday in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley by masked gunmen members of Hezbollah. Observers say that Hezbollah and Syria are now under so much pressure to remain relevant, have begun resorting to the terror tactics they used in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s to make themselves relevant again. For one, Hezbollah has been since 2006 cornered into irrelevance because it can no longer shoot rockets on Israel and provoke Israel to retaliate, thus creating a never-ending justification for its existence as a "liberation" organization. The longer time goes by without Hezbollah provoking Israel, the more likely the Lebanese will forget the "resistance" bullshit that Hezbollah has used to coerce the Lebanese into supporting it.
Syria, on the other hand, is unraveling slowly as the demonstrations against the criminal Baathist regime of the butcher Bashar Assad mount, and as the regime retaliates by killing more of its own people. Syria is on a path to self-implosion, and the regime is trying to scare the West by resorting to its old tactics of starting fires in Lebanon, then turning around and telling the West that it can put those fires down. By engineering the kidnapping of foreigners inside Lebanon, using its Hezbollah proxy, Syria is sending the message to the West that if Syria falls into chaos, then Lebanon will too.....
7 Estonian cyclists kidnapped by Hezbollah operatives in Lebanon
BEIRUT (AP) -- Armed men believed to be Hezbollah operatives and wearing masks kidnapped seven Estonians who were cycling in eastern Lebanon on Wednesday. The group was abducted in Kfar Zabad in Lebanon's eastern Bekaa Valley, an area under the shared control of the Iranian terrorist organization Hezbollah and Syrian-backed Palestinian terror organizations.
Like the rash of abductions during Lebanon's bitter civil war, in which at least 88 foreigners were taken hostage by Hezbollah between 1984 and 1990, including Americans, Britons, French, Indians, Irish, and others, only to die after several years of detention, or be released in a trickle that was timed with shipment of arms from the Reagan Administration to the Khomeini regime in Tehran. Once released from the Bekaa Valley or Hezbollah's Beirut Southern Suburb stronghold, the hostages were paraded in Damascus which took credit for "liberating" the hostages.
In August, two Polish tourists were kidnapped near the eastern city of Baalbeck - Hezbollah's de facto capital, but the motive and circumstances surrounding the abduction were unclear.
