Hezbullah's little block party

"Target-rich environment."
Hezbullah is having their big "victory" party (ironically located amongst the "bombed out" southern suburbs of Beirut) today, along with the international day of Fluffy Pillows (AND RAGE). I'll be tracking Hezbullah here—and wouldn't be surprised to see them participating in some of the Fluffy Festivities later on in the day!

(Hey, if you have a rent-a-populace around, might as well use them for as many fauxto-ops as possible, right?)

Update 26-SEP 10:09 EST: Reader Steve, who is in Beirut, has provided live coverage of the event. Be sure to check out the rest of Steve's website for excellent insight and analysis from on the ground in Lebanon. Thanks alot for the link, Steve! Stay safe!

Hezbollah supporters stand on top of a building over a poster allegedly showing an Israeli helicopter set on fire after it was targeted by Hezbollah fighters in the 34-day long Hezbollah-Israel conflict, during a Hezbollah 'Victory over Israel' rally, in Beirut's bombed-out suburbs, Lebanon, Friday, Sept. 22, 2006. Hezbollah's leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said Friday his guerrilla force would not give up its weapons until Lebanon was 'strong,' demanding changes in the government as he spoke at a rally of hundreds of thousands of supporters in a defiant challenge to Prime Minister Fuad Saniora.

Even looking at the warped poster hanging there, I can tell that this is a photoshopped picture! Go Hezbullah, you are Allah's Conquerors of Adobe.

Word, yo.

More poison in the Arab gene pool.

Hezbollah supporters wave Hezbollah, Iranian and Lebanese parties' flags under a banner showing Israeli soldiers mourning during the funeral of a colleague who died in the Hezbollah-Israel conflict, during a Hezbollah 'Victory over Israel' rally, in Beirut's bombed-out suburbs, Lebanon, Friday, Sept. 22, 2006. Nasrallah said Friday his guerrilla force would not give up its weapons until Lebanon was 'strong,' demanding changes in the government as he spoke at a rally of hundreds of thousands of supporters in a defiant challenge to Prime Minister Fuad Saniora. Arabic writing under poster of Nasrallah reads 'The nation has triumphed and the enemies were defeated.' (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)

OH wow.
Well, Isreal may have won the "battle" but Hezballah is winning the war. If things continue as is, they will win Lebanon through a coup. What you say? "They can't win by a coup because the UN is there."? oooooooo.. So SURI. The UN is not there to disarm anyone. It is there to monitor the "peace" and point their fingers at it if they find it.

You don't really see Israel holding rallies to celebrate its battle. That is because everyone knows that Isreal screwed the pooch on this one. God forgive Israel for thinking that they could do this on their own without God. They lose each and everytime they forget their Lord.

Ali,

If you love Hezbullah so much, why do you live in New South Wales, Australia? It's not like Hezbo has much of a presence in NSW....
