Original Article: Lebanon says Israeli air raid kills 40

An Israeli air raid killed more than 40 people in a Lebanese village on Monday, Lebanon's prime minister said, and other air strikes killed 19 after diplomatic efforts to end the 27-day-old war stalled.

"An hour ago, a horrific massacre took place in Houla village as a result of the intentional Israeli bombardment that resulted in more than 40 martyrs," Prime Minister Fouad Siniora told an emergency Arab foreign ministers meeting in Beirut.

Residents of Houla said they feared up to 60 people, including many children, had been killed. They said most of the people were shepherds who had refused to flee the fighting.

Imagine that. They must be feeling the heat from the Blogosphere...

And I'm going to have to assume that the MSM is feeling the disgust Americans and all truth seekers have for their phony BS they've been reporting.

Let's finally put a stake through this beast.

Good. Now let's get an accurate count of all the dead terrorists the IDF has killed. I gurantee it isn't the handful that has been so far reported.

Well, certainly a sheep or a goat is worth 100 times what a hezzscum sub human is worth. Maybe that explains the multiplication factor.

Intentional...more than 40 martyrs...Can Israel drop an 'errant' bomb on this guy's house already?

The Lebanese PM is so used to working with Hezzbollah, that he forgets that ISRAEL DOES NOT TARGET CIVILIANS!! Yes, unlike his 'buddies', Iraq's proxies, who deliberately target civilians and measure success by civilian body count.

Did you ever read Mrs. Frisbee and the Rats from NIHM when you were a kid? Remember the part where Nicodemus and a few of his closest comrades run out of the nest and back in through the back way, over and over again while it is being poisoned so the farmer thinks he killed all of them?

Same deal here. They bring one body out the front door, 'round to the back, and back in, again and again. And the credulous cretins of the MSM fall for it every time.

No, they're just doing what many "leftists" do - namely, pulling numbers out of thin air.

Another example: In the abortion debate, Dr. Bernard Nathanson admitted that his group made up the number of women who died from illegal abortions in an effort to gain support for legalized abortion. (He was one of the co-founders of NARAL, is now pro-life. He explained the "made-up numbers" claim on p. 193 of his 1979 book, Aborting America.)

Between made-up numbers and outright media propaganda, it's no wonder that masses of Americans believe the lies.

As for the accompanying picture, isn't that the same one they keep circulating?

And Mr PM, you have tolerated a criminal organization as part of your government. What do you expect to eventually happen? Bad friends bring bad luck!

I listened to the counsel for the Lebanese government on Fox yesterday. That miserable b@stard was so puckered up, so carefully choosing his words, that you could just imagine the Iranian guard soldier with the cross-hairs on him...IMHO, the Leb government is useless and basically just Hezzies in a happy-face wrapper.

Don't worry, Reuters will "photoshop" 39 more identical twins into the body count and the MSM will sing the praises of their "accurate reporting" while stating "Bias, what bias?"..

Well, has the PM followed thru with his warning that he would have the Lebanese Army fight Israel. Methinks the Lebanese army want no part of the IDF. They know who's winning.
