Canadian Patriots Victimised in War-Zone.

Canada has a Lebanese population of 300,000, according to this day's National Post newspaper. Of those, 50,000 are residing in Lebanon.

"Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay estimated a third of them are in the south."

Juliet O"Neill, p. A2.

So, fewer than 20,000 Lebanese people with Canadian passports are from the south of Lebanon where the terrorist Hizballah holds near total sway. Those Lebanese in Lebanon are all nice people, probably. Take Maysoun Al-Akras who: "accused the Canadian media and Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister, of twisting the truth about the conflict and the role of Hizballah, which Canada has listed as a terrorist organisation. 'Hizballah is our protector,'she said. I'Il ask Mr. Harper to be on our side and to say the truth about Israel-- to say that Israel entered into my house, that Hizballah was protecting my house...."

[A lady who lives in Lebanon demands that the prime minister of a nation she doesn't live in protect her terrorist friends for her sake? I am missing the point here. Let's try again.]

"Hassan El-Akras... said Hizballah is seen as a protector to the people in southern Lebanon ["Foreign Affairs Minister Peter MacKay estimated a third of them are in the south."
Juliet O"Neill, p. A2.] because the organisation helped force the withdrawal of Israeli forces in 2000. He said his family had no connection at all to the group. 'They have nothing to do [with them] because my family lives here, and my aunts and uncles don't have any relationship with Hizballah...."

Graeme Hamilton, p.A4.

"Yesterday, Foreign affairs spokeswoman Ambra Dickie said the federal government has chartered six vessels to bring Canadians out of danger...."

Kelly Patrick, Quentin Casey, p. A4.

We in Canada want to repatriate 50,000 Lebanese, fewer than 20,000 of whom live in the south and don't have any relationship with Hizballah, a terrorist organisation according to the Canadian government.

50,000 Lebanese with Canadian passports are in Lebanon on vacation. Of the US., they have 25,000, as is the case with Australia, whose Lebanese are known as "men of Middle Eastern appearance," while Britain has 22,000, and France 20,000.

"Yesterday, Foreign affairs spokeswoman Ambra Dickie said the federal government has chartered six vessels to bring Canadians out of danger...."

Kelly Patrick, Quentin Casey, p. A4.

Yup, I want them back here.

Below Brigitte Gabriel and Debbie Schlussel have their says as well.

Most Americans in Lebanon Are Hezbollah Supporters

By Brigitte Gabriel

I am speaking with Lebanese Christians in Lebanon and they are all fine. Israel is not bombing them or their towns. Israel is bombing the Shiite radical strong holds. This is what the news is not telling you. Israel bombed the airport, the port and the bridges to Syria because they are used to transport weapons and support to Hezbollah. The Lebanese army doesn't even have an airforce or airplanes. They only have helicopters. The airport was used to bring support to Husballah and that's why Israel bombed the infrastructure.

Huzballah is the "A Team" of terrorist organizations. They are more organized, more lethal, more structured and more calculated than Al-Qaeda. It is Husballah who is training Al-Qaeda members in south Lebanon, and in the Bekaa and southern Beirut where Israel is bombing. It is those same Al-Qaeda terrorists who are trained in Lebanon, are the ones who travel via Syria into Iraq and Afghanistan. Israel is doing the job that the world powers and UN should have done a long time ago.

It is also in Lebanon and Husballah where these terrorists are developing the roadside bombs used on our marines and soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Those same terrorists have cells in America and ready to unleash suicide bombing here in America.

As sad as I feel watching what is happening in Lebanon, it is absolutely necessary to support Israel to kill the cancer that has spread and is killing the Lebanese body. Israel is not targeting civilians. Israel is targeting terrorists. Israel has launched 3000 air strikes on Lebanon since the beginning of the Operation and inflicted only 122 casualties. If Israel's intention was to kill civilians you would have seen many more civilian deaths than only 122. They are being extremely careful, even dropping flyers and urging civilians to leave before they bomb. These casualties are "terrorists" and terrorist families and sympathizers.

Please read: "Most Americans in Lebanon Are Hezbollah Supporters; U.S. Taxes Shouldn't Fund Their Return," from Debbie Schlussel. She hits the nail on the head. Not all American-Lebanese there, are terrorist sympathizers. There is a minority of Christians vacationing there too. However the majority of the Muslims have connections to Husballah.

Most Americans in Lebanon Are Hezbollah Supporters; U.S. Taxes Shouldn't Fund Their Return

By Debbie Schlussel

One thing is lost in all the press coverage of the whining Americans who went to Lebanon of their own accord and now want us to pick up the tab to get them out.


Most of them are Shi'ite Muslims, many of whom hold dual U.S. and Lebanese citizenship. Many are anchor babies born here to Muslims in the U.S. illegally. Some are illegal aliens who became citizens through rubber-stamping Citizenship and Immigration Services (and its INS predecessor) coupled with political pressure by spineless politicians.

Of the 25,000 American citizens and green-card holders in Lebanon, at least 7,000 are from Dearborn, Michigan, the heart of Islamic America, and especially Shia Islam America. These 7,000 are mostly Shi'ite Muslims who openly and strongly support Hezbollah. Ditto for many of the rest of the 25,000 that are there.

Many of the 7,000 plus Detroiters in Lebanon are active in Dearborn's Bint Jbeil cultural center (the Lebanese American Heritage Club also features mostly Hezbollah fans). Bint Jbeil is a Hezbollah-dominated city in the South of Lebanon, a frequent destination of Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, who is very at home there. Bint Jbeil is a frequent source of shellings on Northern Israel.

July 21: The planes have started to land at Montreal's Trudeau Int'l. The media, both Francophone and Anglophone, eagerly awaits the whiner..err..victims. The french media is well-known to be heavily biased towards anyone that is not Jewish or Israeli thus they've made damn sure to get the sound bites which skew impressions unfavorably of Israel and the Canadian Gov't.
Ohh victim #1: Roula Marash (sp?) In complete ingratitude she bleats that had she known she'd suffer such hardship and indignity she'd have stayed in Lebanon. Anyone want to start a fund drive to make her ungrateful whining wish come true?
Victim #2: Interviewed in the nice comfort of their seemingly opulent home, the Boustani family: The daughter questions aloud how is it that the US, France, Italy managed to get things done faster. Perhaps Papa Boustani, who had gone to Dubai on a business trip prior to the crisis, should spend a lil' more money to educate her daugher on geopolitics: US has a military presence in the area which came in handy; Italy/France are relatively close compared to Canada thus having better possibilities of mobilizing resources. The one complaint that keeps coming up: we had no A/C!!! Good f'ing Christ...your life has been saved and you're bitching about lack of a/c? You ungrateful spoiled brat. Now that you're safely amongst the dumbasses who'll have to foot the bill that saved your life, will you now protest loud and clear to help the *legitimate* Lebanese government rid the country of Hezollah? No I didn't think so....

Frank, thanks for the added information. We should know the mind-set of people who have in pracitice abandoned the nation only to return to bewail their misfortunes when they have an audience of idiots they can get both sympathy and money from. It's good that Canadians see the double standard in print and read the testimonials of these people. Enough reminders of reality might eventually bring the public conscience bacvk to reality so the public will deal with it as it is reather than contining to linger in the current fog of sentimentality and aggressive stupidity that is this self-willed dhimmitude. Then people might actually grow up and make this nation what it should be, a happy and productive place of adults living decently their own lives as individuals.
