The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Know thy enemies

Note that these "Lebanese" people are actively wishing for "Palestine's" liberation. But what does "liberation" mean to a muslim? Saddam Hussein had some ideas:

On October 9, 2000, Iraq announced that it was establishing training bases for Arab volunteers to fight in the coming war with Israel. Later that day, Saddam Hussein gave a speech following an Iraqi Revolutionary Command Council and Ba'ath party conference, in which he said: "The conference made a number of resolutions to support the heroic Intifada and to provide the necessities of the Palestinian jihad warriors, so that they are able to continue their heroic jihad to liberate Palestine from the river to the sea...[additionally] in response to the call of the masses, it was decided to open camps for volunteers for the jihad to liberate Palestine, to complete their military training, and the Ministry of Defense was instructed to give priority to those who entered weapons-training courses."[3]

If you're not aware of the geography of the region, I'd like to point out that the area of Israel that stretches from the [Jordan] river to the [Mediterranean] sea, IS ISRAEL.

It's quite clear what these Islamic radicals want. And it's also clear that the media is doing their best to assist them!
