15000 MORE Hezbollah Eyes and Ears

In the last post I pointed out a summary of the Israeli/Hezbollah conflict specifically related to how public opinion and United Nations actions were shaped in favor of the terrorist group Hezbollah. That summary combined with United Nation's actions led to a clear conclusion that any UN "peacekeeping" farce would really be a stockpile of human shields. In a future conflict Hezbollah would have many more UN personnel to fire their rockets next too. Israel would either be forced to withhold firing at a known enemy location, or they would be severely criticized for firing when UN human shields were killed.

The significance of the additional 15000 troops becomes even more disturbing in light of a Weekly Standard article BY Lori Lowanthal Marcus titled What Did You Do in the War, UNIFIL? The initial paragraphs in the story encapsulate some very serious charges against UNIFIL(bold emphasis mine):
DURING THE RECENT month-long war between Hezbollah and Israel, U.N. "peacekeeping" forces made a startling contribution: They openly published daily real-time intelligence, of obvious usefulness to Hezbollah, on the location, equipment, and force structure of Israeli troops in Lebanon.

UNIFIL--the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, a nearly 2,000-man blue-helmet contingent that has been present on the Lebanon-Israel border since 1978--is officially neutral. Yet, throughout the recent war, it posted on its website for all to see precise information about the movements of Israeli Defense Forces soldiers and the nature of their weaponry and materiel, even specifying the placement of IDF safety structures within hours of their construction. New information was sometimes only 30 minutes old when it was posted, and never more than 24 hours old.

Meanwhile, UNIFIL posted not a single item of specific intelligence regarding Hezbollah forces. Statements on the order of Hezbollah "fired rockets in large numbers from various locations" and Hezbollah's rockets "were fired in significantly larger numbers from various locations" are as precise as its coverage of the other side ever got.
So basically UNIFIL was the eyes and ears of Hezbollah during the conflict. We have seen the United Nations in recent decades in their impotence to contribute to human suffering, refuse to enforce resolutions against Iraq, call the most beneficial country on earth "stingy", suck up to dictators around the globe, go neck deep in the oil for food scandal, peacekeepers involved in raping innocent young girls or exacting sexual favors in exchange for food they were supposed to be delivering, and many other egregious acts. However, to embed themselves as an alleged "neutral force" and then deliver intelligence to favor a terrorist group has got to be very near the top of their "worst" list.

If UNIFIL can cause all these problems with only 2000 members, imagine what will ensue when this massive infusion takes place. It completely calls into question what possible value they can add to the situation. They will not be armed, or acting in any way to disarm or hinder Hezbollah from any attack against Israel. What good is their presence? They can only be there in a capacity of siding with a known terrorist group. In the event a conflict breaks out, they will be props for propaganda, human shields to deflect Israeli fire or media fodder if hit by Israeli fire, and they will act as the eyes and ears for Hezbollah reporting critical military intelligence.

Is there really such a thing as neutrality any more? All have the right to choose sides; whether it be the media, the United Nations or individual countries and people. What is most disgusting, however, is when an entity pretends to be neutral while overwhelming evidence shows the contrary. To profess neutrality in contrast to the facts only serves the purpose of further infiltration and the creation of an Army of Dupes to further the cause they side with. The biggest contribution anyone can do to make the world a better place is to expose these false neutralities so that the masses seeking the truth can determine clearly which side they would choose.
