The Whores of Islam

Mike Packer

David Bedein and Sam Harari published on August 15 in Philadelphia’s The Bulletin quotes from an interview given by Major General Claudio Graziano, commander of the U.N. Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) on the situation in Lebanon.

In true UN tradition the General blames Israel with regards to the implementation of UN resolution 1701. He is quoted as saying “Hezbollah is one of the parties that agree with 1701 and support 1701”. He, also denied allegations that Hezbollah has rearmed. The situation on the ground says the exact opposite. Israel intelligence has photographic proof that “The Party of God” has dug tunnels and underground storage facilities for the tons of arms and ammunition that they have smuggled through Syria into the area in flagrant violation of 1701.
Israel’s Foreign Minister, Tzippi Livni, supported the UN resolution with the hope and trust that the UN would implement 1701. Guess what, no such luck! The UN has again proved itself to be as useless as teats on a boar hog and far more malodorous.

Another question posed to the General was what could UNIFIL do if it discovered evidence of rearming in S.Lebanon, Graziano replied, “UNIFIL has no commitment to the disarmament of Hezbollah. We are a peacekeeping force, not peace enforcement.”
Therein lies the crux of the matter.

It is time the UN disbanded itself as did the League of Nations after WWII because it could not “keep the peace”. The UN is not only not keeping the peace but is playing double standards vis-à-vis the Middle East conflict. This is, of course, not surprising as the Arab members of the UN have everybody by the short and curlies because of their oil glut.

And then there is the problem of the Italian contingent and at its head Major General Claudio Graziano. Since the fall of the Roman Empire the Italians have not been the best soldiers on the planet and were the butt of innumerable jokes.

To shed a little more light on the subject Nissan Ratzlav-Katz writing for quotes from Corriere della Sera that former Italian President Francesco Cossiga revealed that the government of Italy agreed to allow Arab terrorist groups freedom of movement in the country in exchange for immunity from attacks in Italy.

"The terms of the agreement were that the Palestinian organizations could even maintain armed bases of operation in the country, and they had freedom of entry and exit without being subject to normal police controls, because they were 'handled' by the secret services," Cossiga explained.

So, since WWII, the Italians have been the whores of Islam and they continue that tradition in Lebanon.
