A massive attack on the Iranian Embassy in Beirut killed at least 23 people and wounded at least 146 others earlier today.
The attack was carried out by the Abdullah Azzam Brigades, a Lebanese group linked to al-Qaida, which is fighting on the side of the rebels in neighboring Syria, whereas Iran and its proxy Hezbollah are fighting on the side of Syrian President Assad. The war between the rebels and Assad was already beginning to spill over into Lebanon and the attack on the embassy will no doubt lead to further fighting there between rebel groups including al-Qaida on one side and Iran/Hezbollah on the other, to more terrorist attacks by each on the other.
With innocent civilians caught in the middle of course.
With innocent civilians bleeding and dying of course.
A Hezbollah official named Ali Ammar said “Whoever did this is a monstrous terrorist”.
He should know.
Hezbollah should know.
After all, Hezbollah has committed innumerable small and large-scale acts of terrorism in the name of Islam since it came into existence and cemented its status as one the worlds most preeminent terrorist organizations long ago. Terrorism in the name of Islam is Hezbollah’s stock in trade and its history of small and large scale terrorist attacks in Islam’s name is undeniable.
Not once however has it called a terrorist attack it committed “monstrous”, not once, no matter how heinous, savage or barbaric it was.
Or is. Hezbollah is committing terrorist attacks in the name of Islam all the time, is committing them as we speak.
That means of course that Hezbollah thinks that the terrorist acts it commits aren’t monstrous at all whereas the terrorist acts committed against it are.
That’s hypocrisy of the highest order and has everything to do with the hatred and sense of supremacy over non believers at the heart of Islam.
Especially towards Christians and Jews (Americans and Israelis) but towards everyone else too.
Terrorist acts are only monstrous when they’re committed against you, not when you commit them, right Ali?
Well, according to Islam anyway.
Talk about the pot calling the kettle black as the British say.
