An Israeli soldier waves a tattered Hezbollah flag as he returns from fighting around the southern Lebanese village of Marun Al-Ras to a position along Israel's northeastern border with its neighbour. Israel geared up to intensify its deadly offensive against Lebanon, readying thousands more reservists after claiming it had won the green light from the world to crush Hezbollah.

I am sorry Paul...but I didn't see Greta tonight. Now I really wish I had.
Gillerman really is a breath of fresh air compared to normal stodgy Ambassadors...I love him.
I am also glad he said what you said he did...good for him.
Thanks! I was pretty sure of what I thought I'd heard, but then when I saw no reference to it here, I was a little surprised, which led to me being less sure... Guess I should be more self-confident on that -- after all, my training (at least part of it) is to pick up on details, inconsistencies, etc... (No, I'm not a cop or a detective!)
YOu forgot the mandatory line "But he was always a good boy...quiet, unassuming, never hurt anyone" /s
Gosh...when I left the thread...I don't think it had been totally established what his nationality was...I posted what the other freepers heard he was...
Per usual...the police were being very tight-lipped..and even went so far as to say they didn't know the motive yet...LOL
Of course I left that thread over an hour ago..and it is earlier in Seattle...they may know more now.
And his neighbors said he was quiet and never bothered anyone.

She has posted a good deal on it.
OK.. a Eurocrat.. I know that look. If I did that to my better half I might wake up in the next century or two.
I have just felt from the beginning that the puppet masters are going to wring maximum amount of fear tweaking of the globe out of this while preventing it from going into a global nuclear exchange. I think that has been scheduled for at least after 2008's Olympics and possibly as late as 2012 or later. We shall see.
Some significant puzzle pieces seem to scream something dramatic and too horrid to contemplate is scheduled for 2012.
Certainly the tender box is there and idiots are playing with matches around it. But the puppet masters have incredible control in amazing places.
On the other hand, reportedly senior puppet masters of one major 'dark, secret group' have been closing their group meeting places and leaving the USA to live elsewhere. A curious puzzle piece, that.
Captain Uri Lavie, a company commander in the Golani Brigade briefing his soldiers nine months into their military service a few minutes before joining the battle against Hizballah terrorists in southern Lebanon ("Ha'aretz, July 27, 2006):
"This is our time to rise to the challenge, put on the helmets and the bullet proof vests and make sure that the northern border is secure.
We shall fulfill any mission in a most effective manner, in face of any challenge.
If we shall not fulfill our mission we shall forfeit the right to exist.
We shall not lose this war, which we did not start.
Our duty is to serve as a defense force of the Jewish People, and to secure the peace of mind of the civilians in northern Israel.
If we shall not do it, no one will do it in our place.
For two thousand years we waited for the establishment of the Jewish State, and we are not going to roll back because a bunch of terrorists assume that they can scare us.
He who cannot defend Liberty does not deserve Liberty.
If we will not be able to fight until our last drop of blood, in order to secure the Liberty of our People on its own soil, our People will not enjoy Liberty.
There is time to talk and there is time to act. At this time, when missiles and Katyushas afflict the North all the way to Haifa, in addition to the two kidnapped soldiers, the ten soldiers killed and the dozens injured, it is time to fight and not to talk. We are the force, which has been chosen to fight, and we shall perform in the most effective manner.
I will be the first one to enter the battle and the last one to come out, and will do everything in my power to get you out alive and well. On Friday, with G-D's help, we will rejoin with our families. However, I cannot do it alone. Once we cross the northern border, you should exercise full alert and full responsibility toward your fellow soldier."
Heh - well, I only watched the parts of Greta's show when Shep wasn't on. Flipped over to the Weather Channel when he was. To avoid doing, um, what Gillerman said...
I wish the Repubs had about 400 Gillermans (or Boltons) running for Congress this fall.
Long day -- hittin' the sack. Hope there's some more good info. on the 7/29 thread tomorrow -- that's what I come here for. Thanks, all.
You're calling me a "her?!"
My white beard would beg to differ with you . . . as would other parts of my anatomy.
There was another clip on that same site about a group of Jewish scholars studied the origianl writings of the Koran and found a discrepancy. The orginal writings were misinterpreted and it really said that 'a martyr would get a 72-year old virgin'.
Nah, I didn't. And if I did, I wouldn't pursue it.
Hizb'allah wants an immediate cease fire: that's what I've seen.
LOL...I told you I was going to bed...but, alas, I had to stop off at this thread...and I stayed for a while.
Good to see YOU here...LOL
