    Excuse me but I'm rather angry this morning. The pictures from the Middle East are deeply disturbing. The children of Qana, Lebanon, look very much like my own children - beautiful deep brown eyes and brown curls, smiling for the cameras. Now, several dozen of those children are dead. We have failed the children of the Middle East. We've failed them because we could have stopped this two decades ago. We didn't have to forget. It's not just the children of Qana who have died as a result of Hezbullah's crimes. Plenty of Americans have died too over the past...

    The relations between Russia and the Shiite's religious leadership in Lebanon started to develop in the beginning of the seventies.

At the same time cooperation between the Marxist factions of the PLO that were active in Lebanon and Soviet military intelligence – GRU, intensified greatly. Several soviet officers (speaking fluent Arabic) even visited Palestinian terrorist training camps in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon between 1972-1975. Using their connections in PLO they managed to establish...

    "The French Betrayal of America" | March 21, 2004 | self & quotes from Kenneth Timmerman
    Does anyone remember who Robert Stethem was? He was the the U.S. Navy Diver that Imad Mugniyah of the Hizbollah tortured and murdered, and tossed his body to the ground aboard Flight TWA Flight 847 in June, 1985 amid media coverage on the flight from Greece to Beirut. I am currently reading Kenneth Timmerman's book "The French Betrayal of America" to understand the current circumstances of Jack Chirac and his stooge Villipain and their role in the current crisis in the Iraq situtation--it is a must read--Please forgive me for quoting some very interesting background: "Mitterand's lecture (about fighting terrorism...

    Early on the morning of March 16th, 1984, William Buckley left for work at the American embassy in Beirut, Lebanon. Officially, Mr. Buckley, a decorated veteran of the Special Forces, served as the political officer at the embassy. In reality, however, Mr. Buckley was the embassy’s CIA station chief. On his way to the compound, Buckley’s car was stopped by a group of masked men, who forced him from his car at gunpoint. His assailants would later be identified as terrorists from the group Islamic Jihad, which served as an alias for the real perpetrators, Hezbollah. The circumstances surrounding the...
