It made me extremely proud to read that the first plane to land at Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport after it was bombed by Israel was a Jordanian plane there to provide humanitarian support. According to Reuters, the plane will evacuate many of those wounded during the last two weeks of conflict.
BEIRUT, July 26 — A Jordanian military plane landed at Beirut’s international airport on Wednesday to evacuate people seriously wounded in the 15-day-old war between Israel and Hizbollah. Airport officials said the aircraft is the first jet to land at Beirut’s airport since July 13 when Israeli warplanes bombed its runways and forced it to close. Subsequent strikes on the facility damaged fuel tanks and other installations. Source: [Reuters]
Proud of Jordan’s help as well…
Nasralla is getting screwed by Iran
PEACE To Lebanon
in his july 26 cartoon from http://mazenkerblog.blogspot.com/
mazen kerbaj has a cartoon about the rome conference and he jokes:
“israel has the right to continue it’s war on lebanon but they have to ensure that the besieged will receive the elementary needs before bombing them. ”
“if all arab countries stood and said NO the world would have to pay attention.”
Thats really funny, you think the Arab countries have any dignity left? Where have they been for the past 60 years Israel has been comitting crimes. The reality of the matter is that no Arab country cares about the other, they all are puppies pleasing the master.
i feel this is too little. while i realise that having no resources leaves us in a precarious dependant economic situation, we need to take a stand and say more. the lebanese feel abandoned by our stance.
israel is using it to justify their attacks, to justify the lack of a cease-fire. claiming that arab countries have taken their side.
which in effect, they have.
if all arab countries stood and said NO the world would have to pay attention.
its just not right.
I am happy for this news as well.
Hope those angry politicals on Al-Jazeera stop attacking our country and see that we DO help in the RIGHT way.
Leave it to CNN to minimize the positive effect of this gesture. This morning they were talking about how little help the aid was going to do in light of all the need. They weren’t making it sound as a passionate plea for more help to arrive; to me it sounded like they were saying, “Huh, that’s all Jordan?”
I know that I’m a cynical person, but when they spend over 10 hours a day showing reporters embedded with Israeli soldiers and talking about Israelâ€™s military operations, I feel like the least they can do is give some positive piece of news like this a fair shake.
3alam zbaleh that we live in.
