French chickened out
By Mark Neckameyer

Surprise ... The French have surrendered! Yesterday they agreed
with us that the only reasonable way to resolve the Hazbollah
problem in South Lebanon would be to put in a credible international
force willing to slug it out with Hazbollah which is nothing
less than an arm of the Iranian Armed Forces. The UN's UNIFIL
"troops", observers actually, have been there for years
and the terrorists installed thousands of missiles right under
the UNFIL noses. If Israel should back off, Hazbollah with the
sponsorship of Iran and its nutty leader would start setting
up rockets again, in civilian neighborhoods, in masques, in hospitals.
Israel is not going to do that. It would be akin to suicide!
The news today is that the French U.N. Delegation has joined
with Arab nations and is now calling for a complete and immediate
Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon as a condition of any cease-fire,
the sources said. In addition, the French have reportedly agreed
with Arab demands that the Lebanese force be accompanied only
by UNIFIL, with no international force to be deployed. What
happened? Are the French as usual trying to embarrass us? Were
the French threatened either by outside France terrorists or
by terrorist elements from within the Arabs and Muslims living
in France? In any case the French chickened out. Again!
