Hezbollah is Iran's Aspirin Factory

Hezbollah is to Iran's nuclear weapons program as the bombing of the aspirin factory was to Bill Clinton's seduction of Monica Lewinsky. Clinton wanted to distract attention from his extracurricular activities in the Oval Office, so he bombed an aspirin factory in the Sudan. Presto, media attention is directed toward the Sudan. More recently, Iran was feeling the heat of the world's attention to their nuclear ambitions, so it ordered Hezbollah to attack Israel. Presto, the media concentrates on Hezbollah & Israel, and forgets about Iran.

"How can this be?" you say. Isn't Hezbollah a Lebanese terrorist organization? Well, no, it isn't. It is certainly based in Lebanon, but the Lebanese government and the vast majority of the Lebanese people don't want it there.

You've heard about the world's version of the Golden Rule: "He who has the gold rules." In the case of Hezbollah, Iran and Syria provide Hezbollah with the gold: financing, arms and missiles. Iran alone reportedly gives Hezbollah over $100 Million yearly (see LINK below). So Iran and Syria own Hezbollah. Hezbollah either does their bidding, or it ceases to function.

When the G-8 Summit was about to meet recently, Iran's nuclear weapon's program was at the top of their agenda. Suddenly all that changed, and all anyone was talking about was Hezbollah's unprovoked attack on Israel and Israel's response. All it took was a phone call from the murderous Ayatollah's to Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, and on July 12 Hezbollah crossed into Israel, killed 8 Israeli soldiers, and kidnapped two others. They followed this up with over a thousand rockets attacks on Israeli civilian population centers.

Obviously Iran learned a lot from that master of political deceit, Bill Clinton. If it worked for Clinton, why shouldn't the Ayatollahs use the same techniques? On August 20, 1998, just three days after he finally admitted that he had lied to a grand jury and the nation about his sexual escapades with Lewinsky, Clinton attacked the al-Shifa Pharmaceutical Factory (see LINK below) with a cruise missile. And in July of 2006, just as the G-8 was about take up the matter of Iran's nuclear WMD program, Hezbollah attacked Israel. Coincidence? I don't think so...

Hezbollah (which means "Party of God") follows the radical Shia Islamic ideology developed by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran. This terrorist organization has been involved in dozens of attacks, all with the same goal: to terrorize peacful people into acceding to their demands. Here are a few:

  • The 1985 hijacking of a TWA flight.
  • The 1992 Israeli Embassy attack in Buenos Aires.
  • The 1994 bombing of a Jewish cultural center in Argentina.
  • The 1983 bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut.
  • The 1983 bombing of the US Marine Barracks in Beirut that left 241 servicemen dead. This was largest one-day death toll of US Marines since Iwo Jima.

Regarding the Marine Barracks bombing, in May 2003, US District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth declared that the Islamic Republic of Iran was responsible for the attack, on the grounds that Iran had originally founded Hezbollah and financed the group throughout the years.

Hezbollah has solidified its relationship with Iran and Syria, making Hezbollah into one of the best-trained and funded militant organizations in the Middle East. Iran and Syria provide Hezbollah with hundreds of millions of dollars in cash and arms. Iranian military officers train Hezbollah operatives to carry out attacks against Israel.

Anyone who listens to the brainwashing found on the liberal news channels has been hearing for days about "Israel's escalating violence" against Lebanon. There is little or no mention of the reason Israel was forced to retaliate against Hezbollah. And they totally ignore the two central facts about how this conflict is being played out.

First, Israel has gone to great lengths to protect Lebanese civilians during their surgically targeted strikes against Hezbollah. They have done this at a cost of increasing the risk to their own troops. Israel is not fighting Lebanon; they are attacking a cancer that is growing within that nation, a cancer that will destroy Lebanon if it is not removed. Israel is helping Lebanon rid itself of a demonic organization, but it realizes that when it is all over, Lebanon will still be its neighbor.

Second, Hezbollah has gone out of its way to kill as many Israeli civilians as possible. Like all terrorists, the Hezbollah goons are cowards. They would much rather attack unarmed civilians than soldiers who can fight back. And they show just as little regard for Lebanese civilians. They imbed their terrorists among the civilian population, using them as human shields. This is one of the most despicable of cowardly acts.

Lately Hezbollah has been trying to portray itself as a kinder and gentler terrorist organization. They have set up schools (to train little terrorists) and gotten some of their members elected to government office (to better control Lebanon). But if you have any doubt about the real views of Hezbollah's "spiritual leader," listen to the Sheik's chilling response when he was asked about Israel's retaliation for his attacks on their civilians: "We welcome World War III!"
