You Don't Have to be Too Smart to be a Fool!

For all those who have fallen under the Barack Obama spell and believe that negotiating with the enemy is the cure for all the World's ills, here's an interesting piece of news:
Israel offered on Wednesday to start direct peace talks with Lebanon, saying all issues would be negotiable, including a tiny, disputed piece of Israeli-held land on the countries’ border, namely, the Shebaa farms.

When Israel withdrew from southern Lebanon in 2000, the United Nations Security Council stated that the withdrawal was complete even though Israel held onto the Shebba Farms, because the United Nations said that Shebaa was part of the Golan Heights - captured from Syria in the '67 war - and not part of Lebanon.

Hezbollah has used Israel’s hold over Shebaa as a reason for keeping its men under arms despite United Nations resolutions calling for the disarming of all Lebanese militias.

Hezbollah says that as long as Israel holds on to the Shebaa Farms, it needs its weapons because the national army is weak.
But now, Hezbollah says it won't disarm even if Israel returns the Shebaa farms:

The Shiite movement, Hezbollah said on Thursday that Lebanon would still need its armed presence even if Israel finally quit the disputed Shebaa Farms district in the south.

"Any Zionist retreat from the Shebaa Farms would be a big achievement for the 'resistance' for this would be the result of its role and its pressure," Hezbollah MP Hassan Fadlallah was quoted as saying by the state-run National News Agency.

But any retreat "will not change the fact that Lebanon needs the resistance," he said.

History always repeats itself. The tyrants will always remain tyrants, and the fools, who appease them, will always remain fools.
