If you've been watching the television images from Lebanon, Israel
and Palestine and have been feeling a little depressed, cheer up! US Secretary
of State, Condoleezza Rice, has explained that the scenes of death, destruction
and human misery from Beirut, Haifa and Gaza are only the “birth pangs
of a new Middle East”.
It is now crystal clear that the vicious attack on Lebanon was premeditated
with the aim of destabilizing the area of the Middle East.
When President Bush responded to the attacks by blaming Syria and Iran, he
further encouraged the conflict and its probable expansion. In his radio address,
Bush accused Syria as a 'primary sponsor' of Hezbollah and of helping provide
Hezbollah with shipments of Iranian-made weapons. Although in a roundabout way,
the indications are all pointing in one direction.
Consider the pretext!! Is the capture of two soldiers by the Hezbollah worth
more than the killing of civilians, including innocent children and the destruction
of a whole country? Did it entail a declaration of war? Over the last 6 years
Israel has killed 4,500 Palestinians, destroyed 71,470 homes and confiscated
220 hectares of Palestinian land to construct a wall between Israel and Palestine
territory. Besides, more than 9,000 Palestinians languish in Israeli prisons.
Instead of negotiating the release of the captured soldiers against the release
of 95 Palestinian woman and 313 youths under the age of 18, pining away in Israeli
prisons, the Israeli army immediately detained a number of democratically elected
Palestinian government ministers in the Occupied Territories, while destroying
essential establishments. Can this, in any way, be considered as appropriate
The Israeli government knows well enough that its continuing bombing of South
Lebanon and Beirut might just have strengthened the Hezbollah as more and more
Palestinians and Lebanese regard them as their protection against Israeli aggression.
You cannot fight terrorism by increasing violence. So, knowing all this, what
was the scope of Israel to launch this devastating attack on Lebanon? Is Israel
trying to start World War 111 by trying to involve Iran and Syria in the melee?
When a war breaks out somewhere, two principles for civilized people should
prevail: (i) demand an immediate cease-fire and, failing that (ii) keep the
war contained, do not broaden it. One can gauge the civility of the Bush administration
by the fact that it rejected both principles. It opposed an immediate cease-fire
in the Middle East and is not hesitating to involve other nations.
Is the conflict in Lebanon a proxy war, as Israel is also acting as
an American strong-hand in confrontation with Iran? Lebanon is only a stepping-stone.
Iran is the ultimate target!
Israel and the US are leaving no stone upturned in their efforts to involve
Syria and Iran behind the Hezbollah's attacks. The western media is giving them
more than a helping hand in implanting this belief in the hope of expecting
the unexpected. Together with Israel, the US is trying hard to get Iran and
Syria to serve as 'guilty partners'. Condi Rice and other western media immediately
cited Iran and Syria as the 'masterminds' behind the scene, even before having
any tangible evidence. President Bush had tried, but failed, in his insistence
at the recent G8 Summit to incorporate into the joint statement the wording
on the support of Iran and Syria on terrorism. Iran did not swallow the bait!
In spite of vowing to continue diplomatic and political supports to Lebanon,
Iranian authorities have said that Iran will not enter the crisis in Lebanon
The Israeli government threatens Syria and Iran over their alleged role in
the Lebanon crisis and thus shows that it doesn't want peace but wants to escalate
the conflict. It seems evident that their distant target is an attack on Iran,
with US support. In a situation where Israel has unofficially got weapons of
mass destruction, and the right to use nuclear power by Iran is denied, there
is no doubt that the countries in the Middle East are not equal and sovereign.
After all, what is the difference between Ahmadinejad and Olmert? One has called
for the destruction of a sovereign state and the other has put it in practice!
Talk is cheap, while mounting lost lives are costly!
The Western media propaganda did not fall behind in its tries to implicate
Iran, continually alleging that Hezbollah's attack on Israel was directed by
the highest levels of the Iranian government. In the same vein, Israel alleged
that Iranian guards assisted Hezbollah fighters in firing a radar-guided C-802
missile that hit an Israeli navy vessel off the coast of Lebanon, adding that
Iran acquired the missile from China.
The US media has alleged that 'Israeli intelligence has now leaked 'new evidence'
that Iran has stepped up its arms shipments and support for Hezbollah through
Syrian camps'. “The order to increase assistance to Hezbollah came directly
from Tehran with the approval of the bureau of the leader Khamenei” quoted
the Los Angeles Times.
However, in spite of all this, there is no evidence that Iran has any tighter
control over Hezbollah than the US has over Israel!
Finally, one must recall that on the eve of the invasion in 1982, the then
American Secretary of State, Alexander Haig, had advised Ariel Sharon of the
need of a clear provocation to render the invasion of Lebanon acceptable to
A passage from Orwell's 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' aptly describes the US ultimate
“And in the general hardening of outlook that set in...... practices
which had been long abandoned – imprisonment without trial, the use of
war prisoners as slaves, public executions, torture to extract confessions...
and the deportation of whole populations -- not only became common again, but
were tolerated and even defended by people who considered themselves enlightened
“War is the total failure of the human spirit.”
