Subject: Iranian Reparations To Lebanon & Israel? It Would Be Just
CJH    8/16/2006 6:08:48 PM
It just seems totally unjust that Iran encouraged Hizbullah to attack Israel in a state of peace with the necessary result that Israel took measures it deemed necessary for its defense and devastated a lot in Lebanon. If Iran and Syria enabled this attack on Israel then Syria and Iran justly owe Israel and Lebanon compensation for all the damage that can be remedied. No doubt Iran is the major enabler of Hizbullah. I wonder how to seize oil shipments originating in Iran and apply the oil's market value to rebuilding Lebanon and Israel and otherwise compensating the people and governments of both. There oughta be some way. It's not right for Iran to get off scot free.

To everyones best knowledge Iran had very little to do with directly enabling the war--it merely supplied weapons to Hizboo for future use if attacked by Israel. The war was preplanned by Israel or US and allowed to proceed on US acquiescence observe US UN votes. Strictly speaking we allowed Israel to fight for 4 weeks, Iran was not happy to see its weapon squandered on some BS like this. And BTW Hizbies are aiding in reconstruction with Iran funds--they are already carrying out damge reports from civilians. We certainly arn't winning hearts and minds in South Lebanon. $1billion from US would be a small price to pay for garnering some much needed goodwill in that part of the world. We need a better PR dept for the Middle East.

Not $1billion, not even $1. Instead we should declare that the money coming from Iran to repair Lebanon is because Iran recognizes their complicity in arming the Hizballah terrorists who then used Iranian arms and training to attack Israel which forced Israel to defend itself, causing damage to Lebanon--thus, Iran is in fact right now paying reparations for their guilt in starting this war.
