Sovereignty Paradox

Posted by rantingkraut on July 26, 2006

Hezbollah’s Führer Nasrallah is up in arms about possible threats to Lebanon’s sovereignty in a ceasefire deal:

“Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said Hezbollah would reject any deal that compromised Lebanon’s sovereignty.

We cannot accept any condition humiliating to our country, our people or our resistance, …”


So Nasrallah, whose terrorist gang has successfully challenged the de facto sovereignty of Lebanon’s elected government is concerned about Lebanon’s sovereignty. The Irony of this seems to be lost on Al Jazeera.

Anyway, to prove his diplomatic skill and leave his humanitarian idealism in no doubt, the dear leader made some further promises:

“In the new period, our bombardment will not be limited to Haifa,” Nasrallah said. “If matters develop, we will choose the time when we will move beyond, beyond Haifa.”


“We do not hide our martyrs. If any of our leaders or ranks were killed, we announce that and take pride in that,” he said.


The latter statement is of particular interest. It is also consistent with the allegation that Hezbollah has a habit of hiding among civilians: If they are Muslims and will be killed as a consequence they merely become martyrs. As we can read above, to Nasrallah this is an end worth pursuing in itself.
