Hezbollah’s Genocidal Threat-When will the media call Hezbollah exactly what it is? ^ | February 18, 2008 | Alan M. Dershowitz

Posted on 02/18/2008 5:06:53 AM PST by SJackson

The leader of Hezbollah, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, has now called for revenge against Israelis and Jews around the world, for the assassination of Imad Mughniyeh, which he claims was done by Israel. It does not matter, of course, who actually pulled off the assassination. Israel and the Jews would be blamed by Hezbollah even if Syria had been responsible. Blame Israel and the Jews for everything is what Hezbollah always does. In the past, Hezbollah has taken revenge against what it claimed to be Israeli actions by murdering Jewish school children in Argentina. Once again it is threatening to attack innocent Jews around the world.

Yet some in the media describe this as a cycle of violence, thus suggesting moral equivalence between the targeting of a terrorist combatant responsible for the deaths of hundreds of innocent civilians, and the random murder of innocent men, women and children who had absolutely nothing to do with the targeted killing of Imad Mughniyeh, but just happen to be Jewish.

Sheik Hassan Nasrallah’s call for the killing of Jews around the world is nothing short of an incitement to genocide, or at least to mass murder. There is no moral equivalent between military action that targeted a terrorist combatant and the targeting of innocent civilians around the world, based on their religion. Until the media understands this crucial, moral and legal distinction, we will all be vulnerable to the genocidal revenge tactics of Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations.

There is nothing new in the old media:
Who they gonna Blame, if they cannot blame Israel?
Their friends, their benefactors?
The old media is awash in money from those oil-rich arabs.
Telling the truth would cut off their money supply.

We have not Heard Hilary or Barak mention their views on what Hezbollah has said. Somebody in the media needs to ask that question during the next debate. We need to know where they stand on Israel.

It wouldn’t matter because the people that vote for them are lead around by their muzzles by the drive-by media and buy hook line and sinker what they spew.
