It would be fair to say that there would be no Lebanon without the staunch resistance of Hezbollah. The Zionists are not willing to tangle with Hezbollah as they are well aware of the consequences as the resistance can hit back, unlike the mostly unarmed Palestinians, and can inflict some serious pain. It is also noteworthy watching the calm confident demeanor of Hezbollah leaders like Nasrallah and Naim Qassem, maybe the rest of Arabs can learn from them.

France made Lebanon and it was a great mistake. France should have devellopped several smaller states or emirates. ‘ Most people in that Region of today in their traditions, religion, languages as well as etnicity even today sont know what a state is.

Damaskus never should have been choosen by them to be included in anything, but should have been its own able to choose its own destiny only by being some fertile oasis big town and higly populated sourroundings.

The Hesbollah import of the the most mad ones from Iran has solved nothing and only can be compred with the Turkish seytlements in Syria and Iraq by the Osmans.

Israel anytime is a fact. As long as they are attacked the Hesbollah will keep their parts in contrast to other more normal Lebanese as well as Israel.

And of course the usual crap: Everything is everybodies elses fault. Where are the progress after You were liberated form the Osmans. I see none, but just many small and agresive dirty little Osmans like mice taking over from the big same kind of rat in Konstantinople.

Hesbollah seemes to have replaced Allah and common sense with Westerns. I am honored fine, but if so, they deny the needed changes as well as finding their own way for Lebanon. Maybee its forgotten, that Syria was invasing them supported by Hesbollah too.

Your english sucks………..y yo hablo castellano!!!!!


his intellect does too. The guy thinks legitimate and morally acceptable to decide and demand a country to be tailored to his Israeli liking out of the blue. Too bad for his majesty ,Lebannon is recogized with its current border by the entirety of world nations,and includes the Israeli-occupied Shebaa Farms,plus Beirut never occupied or tried to encroach on Israeli lands and ressources. Now how about Israel gives the example and finally gets its borders right in compliance with the same entities as the UN and international Law that have been constantly calling on it to stop being an outlaw state since 1967 ?

Argentina seems to be a very popular destination for Warcriminals…


Actually, Argentina was potentially a rich country but there was also a very strong Jew infestation after WW2 and now they have bankrupted the country as Goldman Sachs and other Bilderberg plunderers move in.

Jens Holm

You have no idea about anything in Argentine as long as You cant even use a calander.

Your “Golman Sachs as well as Bilderg” accusarions was not used until things already was totally out of hands.

You have not written a single analyse about Argentine at all.

Jens Holm

Yes, many from the coastlines of Lebanon as well as Syria and the westbank has escaped to there, but most of them actually are refugees and emmigrants and not warcriminals.

They just want a life, which was not possible, where they came from.

Jens Holm

To me Libanon/Israel/Syria is only a smaller part of the problems for the millions living in Syria as well in Israel and åartly Turkey and Iran.

Right now You ignore Idlib, Afrin, Azas to Al Bab and the whole borderline, where Turks has invaded the “Regime Syria”.

You also ignore how much support ISIS C/o Shammars actually for good reasons got at Eufrat and Khabour to Abau Kamal and up to Hasaka.

Thats Your infection and even based on artificial borders made by Neocolonialisme for French oil from Kirkuk and Brittish through Jordan.

Thats why I try to work with the whole picture making new lines. Those are about better borders by more Autonomi, much better modern Governess in all corners and normal conditions for motivating people to produce more wellfare for themselves.

And dont blame me for Israel being made. My parents were children and has not even met as well as I was born many years after that.

And dont blame me for WW2, where I hardly remember if it was 40 or 75 millions was killed. And dont blame me for Brittish colonialisme.

BUT You should blame Yourself as well as Jews,Lebanese, Syrians, Kurds, Turks, Iraqians, Iranians and others nearbye to make no solutions.

And I do see those Jews are in peace or non war with Egypt as well as Jordan and Saudis nearbye and have no other solution then cleaning, what I have written about above.

Your main problems are not Israerl at all. They are just as USA just an excuse for reamaing in the socalled good times of the Osmans.

You got Your countries and has mismangeged most of it since. Some everlasting killing each other with Jews only make more graves.

Are You blind. 10 millions socalled Syrians ar enot even in their homes and 5 million thats 25% are not even able to live in that area. You also forget the conditions inside Lebanon.

I actually was in Lebanon 3 days before the big destructions barricades and like that. And I did see a corner of a Palestnian refuge camp with 1000s of hostages of Yours.

Your systems are not able to integrate any from other countries even Syrians from Israel. Even so You blame Western Europe being bad. You are muich much worse and today are able to integrate at least 50%.

As You are, You are Nada Nilling nothingworth and insist keeping Your own population just above the pooret parts of the world by misgoverness of the worst kind. That certainly goes for Lebanon, where its no help You have imported the Iranians, which not even Iran could accept makinng them into spendables.


Your english is horrendous, and in substance your pseudo-arguments are weak and already adressed. None of the hardships or political nature of the Arab regime in place justify the systematic oppression, ethnic cleansing and forced land expropriation enacted by Israel in 48 over areas that no entity in the world considers as legitimately theirs, besides the AIPAC-infested halls of the US Congress and current White House. Your country is and will remain an imposed fait accompli that western powers supported all the way to this day in order to keep the post-colonial region in check. Your economy is mostly artifical and dependent on foreign aid namely US-taxpayer money, and extremely priviledged status granted by the EU commercially and scientifically. You don”t pay for most of your army, never held accountable for your many doculented rights abuses, and the show will go on until the next Intifada. Spare me.the self-victimizing speech, millionsof peomel have been bron and growing in unhealthy camps all around theur native land because of what you did to their fathers and forefathers, Israel.has been the number one source of aggression and destabilization over the past 50 years at least,if anything it can only help its own troubles on itself. You reap what you sow. Trying to erase Palestine, dedtroy Lebanln, fragment Iraq and Syria or starve Iran will never result in anything other than mass well-deserved resentment. People are not blind, they see the mass bombings of civiliak neighborhoods of Gaza with banned cluster and phosphorous weapons, the ever-increasing destruction of homes and families in the West Bank, the permanent attempts to humiliate and terrorize the Lebanese at the border and over their head when you violate their airspace daily, the support of Salafist groups for years in the war-torn Golan, the calls of their PM for ever more pressure through catastrophic sanctions on the Iranian people now lacking medicine and food and the sabotaging of the hard-earned JCPOA. Deal with it.

Jens Holm

Thanks for reading. Bist Du Dum oder was mein Freund…


Bitte mein freund. It was a real pleasure debunking your nonsensical arguments piece by piece, as always.

Hasbara Hunter

I almost admire your brainless stubborn stupidity…

Jens Holm

I just refer, what happend and my oppinion about it, I have not createt that stupidity.

You bring nothing Yourself.


I know you are lonely and this is the only outlet at the psych ward, but rather than posting unreadable nonsense, focus on online English lesson and tutorials. Learning a new language at your advanced dementia stage may help ward off some brain cell damage. I am a well wisher.

Jens Holm

The top non-native English speaking countries 1. Netherlands 70.31 2. Sweden 70.72 3. Norway 68.38 4. Denmark 67.34 5. Singapore 68.63 6. South Africa 66.52 7. Finland 65.86 8. Austria 63.13 9. Luxembourg 66.33 10. Germany 63.74 11. Poland 62.45 12. Portugal 60.02 13. Belgium 63.52 14. Croatia 60.16

You english mainly is based on thinking in Turkish and arabic from very limited cultures and language groups.

I will never go back to Your lawyers english, which I learned when I was 15 to 18 years old.

To me its like having a car with no seatbelt, airbag, safezones agains collisions, primitive stearing, breaks driving 12 km pr liter fuel.

Hizbollah humiliated Israel when they last clashed—the 3 billion USD granted by the amerikans each year to Israel seems to benefit them very little

Jens Holm

Funny version again : “humiliated” ha ha ha. Like women wearing lipstick in Iran or not or the extra progress by Saudi women driving cars.

3 billions by USA is hardly nothing, they are much more productive then Yours kept in dark, low productivity and sky high uninployment.


stupid cracker,,,

Jens Holm

I try to relate to facts and You name me “stupid cracker”.
