A Little Premature

(First, an introduction: I'm Pam, guestblogging while Gary recharges over the next couple of weeks. Many thanks to Gary for asking me to join the Ex-Donkey brigade.)

Hezbollah is now declaring victory over Israel:

In the latest video aired on Al-Manar TV the terror group says it “defeated the invincible army” and “July-August 2006: Legend shattered.”

The new video clips show thousands of supporters waving Hizbullah and Lebanon flags.

These clips, which are aired between regularly-scheduled programs, include excerpts from Hassan Nasrallah speeches in which he had promised victory; similar videos were aired during the IDF’s withdrawal from Lebanon in May 2000.

It seems that much like the PR machines of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, the Hezbollah PR machine never stops. (Of course, Paris and Lindsay don't have Reuters and other MSM bigwigs in their pockets.) I wonder how many flag wavers in the videos are there voluntarily?

There is the fact that a cease-fire has not been declared or agreed to by anyone yet. But Hezbollah isn't in the habit of letting little inconveniences like the truth get in the way. And if Israel is smart, it won't listen to the "international community" and will continue to pound upon Hezbollah until it is as ineffectual as a bowl of pudding.

Cease-fires in the past have been nothing but a pause on the march to the inevitiable. Hezbollah wants nothing but a wiping of Israel off the map. Israel needs to stand strong. Shame on those who stand by and wave their fingers at Israel like parents tsk-tsking an errant child.
