    How is it that the un is ok with a terror organization massing weaponry right next door to Israel. Including scad missiles. the reality is that this organization controls Lebanon, and when pressed threaten Lebanese officials (and perhaps) their families with violence. This will obviously end in war, and many people will die. The main reason os that the enemy of hizbulah is Israel and this forces the Arabs to back it publically. The world can wait for the war, or it can act preemtively and send a multi national force to lebanon to uproot hizb just like was done in afganistan. Or prepare for the eventual Israeli response. Next time though I do not believe Israel will back down like it did in the second Lebanon war. Next time will be all out, like the first Lebanon war.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
