Iran / Hizb'allah Rocket Deal Admitted

The cat is out of the bag - Iran is supplying rockets to Hizb'allah and has been for a since the Israelis left south Lebanon six years ago.

The Jerusalem Post writes in the Friday August 4, 2006 edition:

Iran admitted for the first time on Friday that it did indeed supply long-range Zelzal-2 missiles to Hizbullah.

Secretary-general of the "Intifada conference" Mohtashami Pur told an Iranian newspaper that Iran transferred the missiles so that they could be used to defend Lebanon, Channel 1 reported.

The extent of Iran's intimate involvement in Hizbullah attacks is starting to emerge.

According to the defense establishment, the reason Hizbullah has not fired long-range Iranian-made Fajr missiles at Israel is due to Teheran's opposition. Israel now understands that without direct orders from the ayatollahs, Hizbullah is not allowed to use Iranian missiles in attacks against Israel.

Military ordnance fired in "defense" is usually aimed at attacking military forces, not hospitals, residential areas and cemetaries. I guess since Hezbollah wears the uniform of the civilians around them they assume the IDF's uniforms are a rouse, that the real "soldiers" are attacking from those civilian positions.

I have to find that story a week ago from some Iranian big shot claiming absolutely that they were providing NO WEAPONS of any kind to the Hezzies.

Of course most of us knew the Iranians were lying through their teeth and not for the first time.

I just wonder if the handful of folks who swallowed the first lie will now realize how crassly they have been manipulated. Oh forget it... I know they'll just say something like "Oh yeah... we'll BUSH is still a bigger terrorist."
