The conservative advocacy group GrasstopsUSA sent out a mass email yesterday featuring a column described as "a spectator’s guide to World War III — the Lebanese Front." The title: "Kill 'Em All. Let Allah Sort 'Em Out." Some low-lights:
A disproportionate response is the best kind. … What would a proportionate Israeli response be? Snatching two Hezbollah fighters, torturing them to death, cutting off their genitals and stuffing them in their mouths?
Lebanon used to be a nice little country, before the Sons of Allah got their blood-smeared hands on it. Believe it or not, Beirut was once…the most advanced and prosperous country in the Arab world — because a majority of Lebanese were Christians.
Israel needs to step-up its air strikes and send in the troops (can you say "massive deployment, baby?") to do the job only ground forces can do. … To resurrect and reconfigure one of my favorite Vietnam-era slogans — Kill 'em all. Let Allah sort 'em out.
GrasstopsUSA is no fringe group. Its executive director, Christopher Carmouche, sat on the exclusive host committee for last year’s high-profile "tribute" to then-House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) (along with luminaries like Grover Norquist), and was a member of the National Coalition to End Judicial Filibusters, the conservative umbrella group run by Manuel Miranda, former staffer to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN).

KILL 'EM ALL. LET ALLAH SORT 'EM OUT.
GrassTopsUSA Exclusive Commentary
By Don Feder
To counteract reigning confusion about the latest Middle East mayhem, here’s a spectator’s guide to World War III — the Lebanese Front.
The Sons of Allah started it. (The Sons of Allah always start it.)
The current round of bloodletting began on June 25, when Hamas tunneled into Israel from its Gaza lair, kidnapped an Israeli soldier and killed two others. Then their Shiite brethren in Lebanon staged a raid into Israeli territory, killed 8 soldiers and grabbed two. (For what this scum does to captives, consider the fate of the two U.S. soldiers captured by the terrorists in Iraq — tortured to death, their bodies mutilated.)
Israel responded with pinpoint air strikes, hitting Hezbollah targets in Lebanon. Hezbollah began launching rockets into the heart of Israel (1,400 in the first five days of the latest fighting). On the July 16, one of its rockets killed 8 people in Haifa, Israel’s third largest city.
A disproportionate response is the best kind.
The Europeans are whining (after all, it’s what they do best) that Israel’s response to the kidnapping/murder of its citizens, and rocket attacks on its cities, is "disproportionate." Israel’s retaliation is "totally disproportionate," croaked French President Jacques Cirac (pity the chronic collaborationists — who are hooked on surrender — weren’t able to formulate a disproportionate response to the German jihad of 1940)
What would a proportionate Israeli response be? Snatching two Hezbollah fighters, torturing them to death, cutting off their genitals and stuffing them in their mouths? Sending a suicide bomber into a Gaza shopping mall to turn Palestinian women and children into body parts? Blowing up a Syrian skyscraper (do they even have them?) and burying 3,000 office workers under several tons of rubble?
Proportionate responses let the terrorists establish the rules of engagement — set the parameters of the conflict. (We kill three of them; they kill three of us.) Given the population disparity in the Middle East (100 Muslims for every Jew), Hamas and Hezbollah — Iran and Syria — are happy to engage in this type of attrition.
In "The Untouchables," Sean Connery as the old Irish cop advising Eliot Ness on how to deal with the Capone mob, urged a disproportionate response: "If you open the can on these worms you must be prepared to go all the way because they’re not gonna give up the fight until one of you is dead… . You wanna know how to do it? Here’s how, they pull a knife, you pull a gun. He (Capone) sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way, and that’s how you get Capone. — Or any criminal gang masquerading as a business — or a religion.
Lebanon used to be a nice little country, before the Sons of Allah got their blood-smeared hands on it.
Believe it or not, Beirut was once called the Paris of the Middle East (all the elegance, none of the French). Lebanon was the most advanced and prosperous country in the Arab world — because a majority of Lebanese were Christians.
Then came the influx of Palestinian refugees (charming folks, really) in 1948 and 1967. When the PLO was kicked out of Jordan by King Hussein, they set up shop in Lebanon. A civil war ensued, with the local Muslim population allied with their Palestinian cousins.
Israel invaded twice to secure its northern border from PLO mortar attacks. At the behest of the Arab League, Syria sent a "peacekeeping" force that turned into an army of occupation. It controlled the Bekaa Valley for a quarter of a century. (Even after its withdrawal, the Lebanese government remains a Syrian puppet.) The Syrians murdered every Christian politician of consequence, including president-elect Bashir Gemayel in 1982. Due to their breeding habits, Muslims are now a majority. Hezbollah has 27 seats in the Lebanese parliament.
Many Lebanese Christians were forced into exile. The Lebanese Foundation for Peace recently urged Jerusalem to "hit them (Hezbollah) hard. … 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 (Lebanese) Diaspora willing to bear arms and liberate their homeland from (Islamic) fundamentalism."
Lebanon is the latest front in Islam’s war on humanity.
Along with Kosovo, Kashmir, Nigeria, the West Bank, Gaza and the Sudan, Lebanon is one front in a global war.
On July 11, the Lashkar-e-Taiba (the "Army of the Righteous," as opposed to Hezbollah — the "Army of God") exploded 8 bombs along a busy commuter railroad in Bombay. These Sons of Allah (Pakistani Chapter) managed to kill 147 Indians and wound hundreds more — not quite half the death toll in Lebanon, in a matter of minutes. Oddly, the Europeans aren’t up in arms over this outrage. A serious condemnation of Pakistan might upset their Muslim citizens.
The Lashkar-e-Taiba’s initial goal is to detach the Kashmir from India. Long-term, it seeks an Islamic republic in India (where Muslims constitute only 10% of the population) and the annihilation or subjugation of Hindus. One of its slogans is "Killing Hindus is the way forward" — echoing Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s pledge to see "Israel wiped from the face of the earth." On its website, Hamas (now in control of the Palestinian parliament, so-called) boasts, "We will drink the blood of Jews until we have quenched our thirst with your blood."
Given the Muslim mania for making blood sacrifices in his name, Allah seems less like the God of the Bible than a super-charged Moloch.
In Kosovo (which NATO turned over to Albanian Muslims after bombing Yugoslavia into submission in 1999), 200,000 Serbs have been ethnically cleansed. In a decade, the Serbs have gone from 20% of Kosovo’s population to less than 2%. Two thousand Serbs were murdered (with zero intervention by the international peacekeeping force); the remaining 80,000 cower behind barbed-wire barricades.
That’s the way the Sons of Allah do business — in Lebanon, the Indian subcontinent, the Sudan or the West Bank. (Since the Palestinians assumed control, Bethlehem’s Christian population has gone from 70% to 35%.)
Wherever the Neanderthals come in contact with those who walk upright, the results are ethnic cleansing, subjugation, genocide, terrorism or civil war. Hezbollah is Hamas is the PLO is the Lashkar-e-Taiba is Al Qaeda is Iran is Syria, is Saudi Arabia. Like Mafia, Cosa Nostra, wise guys and the Organization, these are different names for the same criminal conspiracy.
Israel brought this on itself (with an able assist from Washington).
Go back to 1982. PLO attacks from Lebanon prompted an Israeli invasion. Israel was at the outskirts of Beirut. Arafat and the PLO high command were cornered like rats. Israel could have wiped out the oldest terrorist gang in existence and turned Lebanon over to the Christians, creating a strong ally and a buffer state.
Ronald Reagan == the Gipper, for God’s sake! — forced Sharon to let Arafat go and pull back. The U.S. sent in a peacekeeping force of Marines. The Sons of Allah thanked us by murdering 241 of them, in the 1983 bombing of the Marine compound in Beirut. (Hezbollah claimed responsibility, a fact little noted by the media today.)
The Sons of Allah took the American withdrawal from Lebanon as a sign of our impotence. Along with Clinton’s pull-out from Somalia and Gomer Pyle’s non-response to the 444-day Tehran hostage crisis, this set the stage for 9/11.
Israel pulled back to a 20-mile security zone in Southern Lebanon, which it vacated in 2000 — another Hezbollah victory.
Responding to US pressure and the stupidity of its own politicians, last year, Israel unilaterally turned Gaza over to the terrorists, and drove 8,000 Jews from their homes in the process (thus achieving the distinction of being the first government to ethnically cleanse its own people).
This suicidal good will gesture was rewarded when those peace-loving Palestinians elected Hamas to power in January. Since the handover, Hamas has launched 700 missiles at Israeli settlements in the Negev.
For these ravenous wolves, concessions, negotiations and ceasefires are the scent of blood. An outstretched hand is always answered with a kick in the teeth. Prior to the Second World War, Winston Churchill warned of the Germans, "The Hun is either at your feet or at your throat" — meaning you will subdue him or he will subdue you. That goes double for the Sons of Allah.
When we negotiate, we lose.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is now in Beirut, apparently trying to end the fighting.
Rice thanked Lebanese Prime Minister Faud Saniora for his "courage" in attempting to contain the fighting between Hezbollah and Israel. (What about his gutlessness in allowing the Party of God to create a state within a state in Lebanon?) She also met with Nabih Berri, the speaker of Lebanon’s parliament and a Hezbollah ally. Hope Berri washed off the residual blood of 241 Marines before they shook hands.
Hezbollah has announced its interest in a ceasefire — to give it time to regroup, import more Syrian rockets and plan its next campaign.
Now that it’s proven its ability to damage the terrorist infrastructure, Israel needs to step-up its air strikes and send in the troops (can you say "massive deployment, baby?") to do the job only ground forces can do.
Tragically, that won’t happen. Jerusalem is signaling it will accept yet another peacekeeping force. This time, instead of the UN (Hezbollah launches its rockets in line of sight of the blue- helmet boys), perhaps a NATO force will do — composed of the French, Germans and Spanish, no doubt. Commanded by Cindy Sheehan and Pat Buchanan?
The principal reason I support the US presence in Iraq is because I like the idea of putting jihadists in body bags — whenever and wherever we find them.
