The Big Pharaoh's Dad Offers the Wisdom of His ExperienceThe Big Pharaoh's dad was a general in the Egyptian army during the 1967 war:
This idiot Nasrallah. He is so funny. He keeps on issuing threats, he has no idea what he is talking about. What Israel is doing to him now is just gentle padding on the shoulders. Abou Shakha dah didn't see what we saw. Israel fought on 3 fronts in 1967 and it was hell. I was there, I saw it all. He has no tanks, no boats, he has nothing except a few toys he got from Iran and it seems abu shakha dah don't know that Israel confronted 3 of the most powerful armies in the region at the same time. If Israel wanted to brutally crush him it can do so in 1 hour.
[*Abu Shakha dah literally means "this guy with the piss". We use this slang term to refer to a grown up whose capabilities is of a baby who wets himself.]
We've also all been agog with speculation as to why the Saudi's are blaming Hezbollah, not Israel, for the latest round. Charles at LGF called it a flying pigs moment of the day.
BP offers three reasons:
First, Hizbollah has just set the region on fire and Saudi is not so happy about it. Second, Saudi Arabia is very concerned at the amount of influence Iran is now having in its neighborhood via its surrogate Hizbollah. Three, Hizbollah's unilateral decision to engage with the Israelis is against the interests of the group of Lebanese politicians who superseded the Lebanon revolution. This group includes Saudi Arabia's man in Lebanon Saad Hariri.
Wow! Check out this unbelievable letter that Charles Johnson is quoting from the Lebanese Foundation for Peace.
Dear Prime Minister,Read the whole thing.
It was about time,
We Lebanese congratulate you on your recent actions against the Hezbollah terrorist infrastructure in Lebanon. We urge you to hit them hard and destroy their terror infrastructure. It is not Israel who is fed up with this situation, but the majority of the silent Lebanese in Lebanon who are fed up with Hezbollah and are powerless to do anything out of fear of terror retaliation.
Since Israel's forced withdrawal in 2000, pulling out due to pressure from the Clinton Administration, Hezbollah has not for one day ceased its terror incentives, acts of war and provocations at the border. Hezbollah, with the help of Syria and Iran, turned Southern Lebanon into a terror base supported by 12,000 Iranian missiles threatening every initiative for Peace in general and the security of Israel in particular.
