Not All Lebanese Are Unhappy With Israel

Holly at TMV links to an interesting message up at The Lebanese Foundation for Peace, a site that lists its mission as "to promote a lasting peace between Lebanon, Israel, and Syria". Bridgett Gabriel sends a message to Israel that sounds somewhat different than one might expect:

Thank You Israel

For the millions of Christian Lebanese, driven out of our homeland, "Thank you Israel," is the sentiment echoing from around the world. The Lebanese Foundation for Peace, an international group of Lebanese Christians, made the following statement in a press release to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert concerning the latest Israeli attacks against Hezbollah:

"We urge you to hit them hard and destroy their terror infrastructure. It is not [only] Israel who is fed up with this situation, but the majority of the silent Lebanese in Lebanon who are fed up with Hezbollah and are powerless to do anything out of fear of terror retaliation."

Their statement continues, "On behalf of thousands of Lebanese, we ask you to open the doors of Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport to thousands of volunteers in the Diaspora willing to bear arms and liberate their homeland from [Islamic] fundamentalism.

We ask you for support, facilitation and logistics in order to win this struggle and achieve together the same objectives: Peace and Security for Lebanon and Israel and our future generations to come."

Gabriel tells her readers that the Islamists have held Lebanon hostage ever since the Israeli withdrawal in 2000, assisted by Syria and its intelligence services. The only solution possible is to have Israel destroy the Islamist infrastructure in southern Lebanon, because the Lebanese are powerless to do it for themselves.

Let's hope it works out that way. Israel needs to be careful to avoid attacking non-Hezbollah areas or at least doing so in as limited a manner as possible. We need a democratic and independent Lebanon, and the non-terrorist Lebanese deserve it.
