ISRAEL @ WAR: Appeasement Inc.
For a brief period, it seemed as if Appeasement Inc., with branches throughout the United States and Europe, as well as in Jerusalem, was in danger of being shut-down.
The Jewish State of Israel was fighting a two-front war against Hamas and Hezbollah - two terror organizations (that dabble as political parties on the side) - and both the U.S as well as many in Europe recognized that the IDF was not just fighting Israel's fight, but leading the fight against the threat posed by Islam to the western world (even if it was more difficult for some to admit than for others).
In that reality, which lasted about 7 - 10 days, there were no buyers for what Appeasement Inc. was selling. There was no talk of Israeli concessions, or international pressure to bring about an immediate cease-fire. It was recognized that nothing short of the elimination of Hezbollah and its Iranian / Syrian supplied arsenal could truly bring an end to the fighting in Lebanon - not to mention that there wasn't much pressure on Israel to make diplomatic "progress" on the "Palestinian" front, where the Hamas led government had started its own war against the Jewish State.
Well, times have changed, and Appeasement Inc. is back in business.
Consider the following:
Proposed international force would not disarm Hezbollah
The role of the international force that will be sent to Lebanon following a cease-fire will be to assist the Lebanese army to deploy in the south, ensure that Hezbollah does not rebuild its positions there and ensure that quiet is maintained along the Israeli-Lebanese border... this force will not be responsible for disarming Hezbollah nor will it be stationed at the border crossings between Lebanon and Syria in order to halt the flow of weapons from Syria to Hezbollah.From the above we can draw two conclusions:
1st, the international community will not allow for Israel to destroy Hezbollah and its terror infrastructure (including its deadly arsenal of missiles).
2nd, the international force to be deployed will be as successful in stopping Hezbollah as was UN Resolution 1559, which called for disarming Hezbollah and deploying the Lebanese army in the south over six years ago.
If that weren't bad enough, the United Nations (branch of Appeasement Inc.) is not only calling upon the Jewish State to immediately cease its military operations in Lebanon, but to cede territory to Hezbollah, as well:
UN envoy Terje Roed-Larsen, at a press conference at the UN on Friday, touched on the issue and said, according to a UN communiqué , that "Much of Lebanon's support for Hezbollah was linked to the Shaba issue, so if that was resolved, that would hit hard at the justification for a resistance..."Even though, Roed-Larsen himself, admitted that Lebanon has no legitimate claim to the area in question:
Last year Roed-Larsen, who is the UN special envoy on implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1559, issued a report saying that both he and the Security Council had said repeatedly that "the Shaba Farms area is not part of Lebanon. Therefore, any Lebanese 'resistance' to 'liberate' the area from continued Israeli occupation cannot be considered legitimate."Appeasement Inc. is not limiting the scope of its operations to Lebanon only.
Rice says need to keep focus on Palestinian state
Not only should Israel allow Hezbollah to remain in southern Lebanon (with their deadly arsenal); not only should Israel consider making territorial concessions to Hezbollah, but Israel must make further concessions to the Hamas led "Palestinians", who seek nothing short of the destruction of the Jewish State - and whom the IDF is currently at war with in Gaza - with the goal of reviving the Oslo-esque "Land (, weapons and release of terroritsts) for Peace" process.
Sadly, Appeasement Inc. is not only based overseas, but it is also very active within the Jewish State itself.
Olmert: 'West Bank withdrawal still on'
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said yesterday Israel will forge ahead with his plan to pull out of Judea and Samaria.
"We will yet evacuate communities and it is important to me to complete this chapter as soon as possible so that we will be able to continue as a strong and united nation for the challenges that await us," Olmert told a group of Israelis evacuated last summer from the Gaza Strip.
Appeasement Inc.: Why worry about tommorow today?
