Victorious Hezballah will not disarm, withdraw

Mocking Israel's effeminate pleas and the UN's toothless resolution for the "Party of Allah" to retreat from southern Lebanon and disarm their military, Hezballah today officially declared they will do no such thing and will stay in southern Lebanon, fully armed, as long as they damn well please. In response, Ehud Olmert announced he will unilaterally cry and eat ice cream.

Ynet News - Hizbullah announced that it objects to withdrawing from area south of the Litani River and to disarming despite UN Security Council Resolution 1701.

These statements were made by Hizbullah member of the Lebanese Parliament and member of the policy office of the Shiite militia, Hassan Fadlallah in an interview with al-Jazeera.

According to Fadlallah, the terror group refuses to withdraw from areas south of the Litani River due to the fact that its members are residents of south Lebanon. As to the disarmament issue, the organization claims it is not being discussed within or outside the Lebanese government.
In a related story, it appears that Mr. Olmert is now considering unilaterally releasing hundreds of Hamas terrorists from prison with the hope that the terrrorist organization will be so moved by this "good will gesture" that they will release kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit.

Arutz Sheva - Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zahri, a senior Hamas figure involved in the negotiations over the soldier, told Reuters that the Egyptians received the offer [to release over 600 moslem prisoners] and transmitted it to the Hamas Authority.

The offer also includes, in addition to the 600, the release of veteran Palestinian terrorists long held in Israeli prisons. Arutz-7's Haggai Huberman notes that the Government of Israel has thus far refused, at least officially, to release Palestinian terrorists in exchange for the captive soldier.

19-year-old Corp. Gilad Shalit, of a small community in the northwestern Galilee, was kidnapped almost two months ago from his tank just outside of Gaza. The Hamas terrorist kidnappers killed two other soldiers in the attack.

Abu Zahri refuse to divulge details of the alleged Israeli offer. He noted that three Palestinian terror organizations were involved in the abduction and are not willing to give up on their demands.

Well, if you aren't willing to defeat your enemy militarily, than begging, pleading and groveling is a nice alternative. To that end, I must say, PM Olmert seems to be a real natural. You go girl!
