Hezbollah Hid Behind UN Post

Are we surprised that the Hezbollah would try to hide for protection around a United Nations post? I am. They usually use civilians for that. Will that make any difference on the left's judgment against Israel for its attack at that site?

Hezbollah was using UN post as 'shield'
Canadian wrote of militia's presence, 'necessity' of bombing

The words of a Canadian United Nations observer written just days before he was killed in an Israeli bombing of a UN post in Lebanon are evidence Hezbollah was using the post as a "shield" to fire rockets into Israel, says a former UN commander in Bosnia.

Those words, written in an e-mail dated just nine days ago, offer a possible explanation as to why the post -- which according to UN officials was clearly marked and known to Israeli forces -- was hit by Israel on Tuesday night, said retired Maj.-Gen. Lewis MacKenzie yesterday.

"What that means is, in plain English, 'We've got Hezbollah fighters running around in our positions, taking our positions here and then using us for shields and then engaging the (Israeli Defence Forces)," he said.

That would mean Hezbollah was purposely setting up near the UN post, he added. It's a tactic Maj.-Gen. MacKenzie, who was the first UN commander in Sarajevo during the Bosnia civil war, said he's seen in past international missions: Aside from UN posts, fighters would set up near hospitals, mosques and orphanages.

The U.N. knew of this situation and should have pulled their observers out of the battle zone. But, maybe four lives to them are worth the propaganda value against Israel. Is there any question as to who the bad guys are in this struggle?

yes...and I must say at this point I believe the UN is a complacent player in the war on terrorism. The UN knew this, they knew their people were targets. They also knew full well HezBULLAH was using this post; the UN is playing two sides here and they've been caught. We all know how evil HezBULLAH is; it's about time to start showing the UN for it really is too.

They've been using Lebanese people as a shield. They found another one.

I failed to send a trackback.
