Something Fishy

The loss of life in Qana is heartbreaking but there is something fishy going on there. Confederateyankee has a good rundown concerning the delay in that building falling.
And from the Jerusalem Post:
Hours before the air force's press conference, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Gillerman told NBC's Meet the Press program that he suspected the building collapse was orchestrated by Hizbullah because it was in their interests.

He said Hizbullah also might have prevented the civilians from leaving the collapsed structure "in a cynical and brutal way."

Israeli officials noted that the Lebanese rescue teams did not start evacuating the building until hours after the collapse and only when the camera crews came. The rescue team then took out the bodies of children slowly for the camera crews.

And like I said yesterday, "most of these children" were handicapped.

Michael Totten quotes Ali from Hezbollah today.
And even when the battle with the Israelis is over, he adds menacingly, Hizbullah will have other battles to fight. "The real battle is after the end of this war. We will have to settle score with the Lebanese politicians. We also have the best security and intelligence apparatus in this country, and we can reach any of those people who are speaking against us now. Let's finish with the Israelis and then we will settle scores later."

Qana is fishy and I suspect Hezbollah over Israel. Terrorists fully realize the importance of the media in today's warfare.
