Inside Story

In last Saturday’s Telegraph, buried amongst the troughgate, was: “Lebanese accuse Britain and US of appeasing Hizbollah “ by Damien McElroy in Beirut.

“Leaders of Lebanon’s pro-Western government have accused Britain and America of “appeasement” of Hizbollah as the radical Muslim movement prepares to seize power.”[….]“ A British diplomat said that the decision to talk to Hizbollah was taken even though the Secret Intelligence service reported it was implicated in terrorist incidents in the past year.”

We are talking to Hizbollah, and by so doing we risk making things worse for the pro-Western government that we supposedly aim to support.

The BBC has joined in this ever increasing chorus of admiration for Iran’s proxy whose aim is to destroy Israel, their contribution being the latest episode of ‘We are all Hizbollah Now.”

Particularly telling is the word the writer, Natalia Antelava, uses to describe an attack on the US military barracks, and bombings of Israeli and Jewish targets. Not, this time, the popular and somewhat revealing “audacious.”

Natalia wears her heart on her sleeve and comes out with “famous.”
“Notorious” or “infamous” did not quite express her true emotion?

    Barack Obama should stop apologising for America

    "The world today is considerably more dangerous than it was in the days of the Bush Administration, and the Obama White House has nothing to show for its weak-kneed efforts. The brutal truth is that the United States is increasingly viewed as a soft touch by its enemies, increasingly jeered rather than feared". The Telegraph

    american casualties in iraq last month are at their highest since September 2008

    i guess the jihadist nutjobs also agree that obama is another jibbering jelly weakling like Jimmy Carter.

    I frankly couldn't give a damn about Israel and the Palestinians. They're as bad as each other.

    The BBC and the FCO have never met a proscribed organisation they didn't like -particularly if it's Muslim.

    Search the BBC site for coverage of the 06 conflict and be in awe at the fawning and bias.

    er, doesn't the FCO actually make the list of proscribed organisations?

    This is a draft for the speech that Obama should make – telling Muslim states and peoples that the US has a mostly good record – and it is they who need to get their heads straightened out, they who have done damn-all for peace :

    What a nice photo they used of Hezbollah. They could have used this one instead:

    However, showing them as fascists would have rather jarred with the friendly and admiring tone of the article.

    I think he's thoroughly ill-intentioned and will be the destruction of western civilisation. Still, if he's just stupid not sinister, nice he invited Sue Boyle to sing at the White House.
