YNetNews (an Israeli news website)is reporting that a Lebanese website has claimed Hezbollah staged the recent Qana deaths. Although for different reasons then I outlined in my post yesterday. According the Lebanese site the Lebanese government wants to disarm Hezbollah after the cease fire and Qana was staged to forestall that:
Anti-Syrian elements in Lebanon openly point finger at Hizbullah as guilty of killing of dozens of civilians in order to curtail plans for disarming group. 'Hizbullah has placed rocket launcher on building's roof and brought invalid children inside in bid to provoke Israeli response,' they write
The Lebanese website LIBANOSCOPIE , associated with Christian elements in the country and which openly supports the anti-Syrian movement called the "March 14 Forces," reported that Hizbullah has masterminded a plan that would result in the killing of innocents in the Qana village, in a bid to foil Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora's "Seven Points Plan", which calls for deployment of the Lebanese army in southern Lebanon and the disarming of Hizbullah.
In other Qana news Richard Engel of NBC asks "Where were all the men?", the answer:
So we went house to house in trying to figure out where all the young men were.
It seems that some of them were fighters, some of them were Hezbollah members that were out Â this according to Hezbollah people who didn't want to be interviewed but we convinced them to talk to us.
Traditional media gets beat up a lot but in this case the guy is asking the right questions.
