Senior officer briefs MKs on 'harsh crush' of Hizbullah; along Lebanon border, army 'leveling' area in order to thwart attempts to rebuild organization's posts. MK Tibi: Generals, Admirals have taken Peretz hostage
On the sixth day of the war in northern Israel and in Lebanon, on the day in which an IDF soldier was killed in Nablus and the Qassam fire in the south continued, the army chief and his senior officers arrived at the Knesset in order to brief the Knesset members on the various fighting scenes.
A senior military officer said at the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that Israel has began "leveling the ground" about one kilometer from the border with Lebanon for "military needs" and in order to prevent a return of Hizbullah posts to the area.
The officer spoke about one moment in which 100 aircrafts flew over Lebanon, and in which Hizbullah forces were "harshly crushed."
Israel has information about places where the rockets are being hidden, and the Air Force is engaged in intercepting them. An officer from the intelligence department said that it appears Nasrallah has not dyed his beard for days, and the reason is simple "he has not left the pit where he is hiding."
Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Chairman Tzahi Hanegbi said that the IDF is "faced with a challenge the like of which we have not known in many years."
He explained that the "operation has become complex in light of the fact that there are kidnapped soldiers on both fronts, and we need sophistication, creativity, and patience."
MK Effie Eitam (National Union-National Religious Party) backed the policies of the army and government during the meeting, saying that "There's no need for rows of armored vehicles to roll into more villages containing Hizbullah. Nasrallah is simply begging for an IDF ground operation. But the strategic and tactical operation being carried out by the IDF is the correct one. Nasrallah was very surprised by the Israeli home front's stamina. We have passed the fear barrier of the unknown."
He added that "it would take time" to return the kidnapped soldiers.
Generals abducted Peretz?
The committee's former chairman, MK Yuval Steinitz (Likud), said that in light of the IDF chief of staff's briefing, he believed that the operation could take a number of weeks.
"The citizens of Israel need to take a deep breath so that the IDF can succeed to change the reality in the north," he said.
He added: "Like we abandoned the rocket industry in the north, we are abandoning it in Gaza and if it is not dealt with, then within a year to two years they will be able to hit all of the south. There is an opportunity to take advantage of the situation for root treatment."
Knesset Member Ami Ayalon (Labor) called on Finance Minister Abraham Hirschson to provide compensation to damage caused to businesses in the north following the Katyusha attacks. Ayalon also called for a freeze to the credit and overdraft regulations changes in effect from last month in northern communities.
Knesset Member Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List Ta'al) attacked Defense Minister Amir Peretz following IDF operations in Lebanon.
"The generals and admirals took Amir Peretz hostage, and then then he has been doing it in a more cruel and brutal way. There should be a ceasefire that will save lives on both sides," Tibi said.
Probably also running low on toilet paper.
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
Not a problem. Devout Muslims don't use toilet paper.
He could always use a leaf, or a page from the Koran.
If they get nothing else, let them please get Nasrallah.
True. that's why they pile those filthy rags on their heads..
Why did you hear something about his right hand being blown off?
And please let it be in mid-sentence during one of his news broadcasts so there is no doubt he was put down.
Perhaps Rummy will load them MOAB to help fill that pit in...
Seems like the air sorties should have put a bigger hurt on the rocket launching capabilities by now.
Those dirty Arabs use their left hand for the way we use toilet paper. Maybe some enterprising freeper can try to get the DUmmies to boycott toilet paper in solidarity with their terrorist buddies in the ME! Would be fun to watch!
That is so incredibly refreshing to read. Going for the root treatment and not some pathetic bandaid on the symptom.
arabs don't use toilet paper but rather their left hands.
Even though the IDF has mapped and registered this area for years, there are plenty of caves and new underground systems where these worthy oriental gentleman can hang out in relative safety.
The hard part comes when the groundpounders come in and winkle them out of their holes. That might not happen for a while, if at all.
(Go Israel Go! Slap 'em down Hezbullies.)
Death to Nasrallah and all of his thug followers!
Chicken $hit. He sends everyone else out to do his dirty work while his sorry a$$ is protected in a bunker. Bet he ends up gaining weight while in his pit. Hope all he has left to eat is pork sausage and bacon.
what, are you saying they've never have a bowel movement in their entire life Jeez, that would go a long way in explaining why the fundamentalist ragheads are as crazy as they are. maybe it just oozes out of their ears and gets stored in their turbans??
The first thing any muslim aspiring to a leadership role learns is to hide in a spider hole.
>>>>"he has not left the pit where he is hiding."
They'll bring him in just like they did Saddam.
And wear woman's underwear.
