Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII - Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

Using the UN: France and Lebanon

No moral clarity here.

by StFerdIII

The United Nations long ago ceased to be an effective tool to promote human rights; democracy; freedom and respect for the individual. As with all internationalist aspirations, this failed and weak precursor of a world government has for 50 years shown the decrepit, corrupt and immoral nature of a group managed by self absorbed elites in France, Russia, China and the Arab-Islamic-African world. Why any sentient being in a developed country would support this group with their tax payer money is one of the great riddles of the day. Guilt, liberal relativity, socialist yearnings, buy-the-world-a-coke mentality, and political Marxist posturing all play some part in convincing tax payers in the northern part of the world to fund a rotten, useless venture. The current Lebanese cease-fire once again highlights the obvious fact [if anyone needed more proof], that the UN has outlived any purported purpose. This stage whereupon mock powers such as France strut and preen themselves is a sorry drama that needs a final curtain call.

France as a mediocre and weak second rate power is one of the nations that benefits greatly from the poseur club that is the UN. For decades the French and others have used the UN as a means to assert their own relevancy, even as their hard power has waned and faded. Free-riding off the US hegemon is more easily accomplished under the guise of a sanctioned and accepted international group with a supposed claim on morality and clarity, then it is as a single, fainéant and hypocritical power. Repeated scandals, corruption, and immoral support for terrorist regimes and an inability to discern right from wrong; good from bad; and moral from the moral; has ensured that the UN and its main benefactors in the Franco-Russian-Sino-Arab-African world, is no more than a criminal gang of dangerous elements. Lebanon is just another example of the irrelevancy of both France and her liberal inspired fetish, the UN.

In order to appear politically powerful and to satiate their obsession with providing a ‘contre-puissance vers les Americains’ [a counter power to US hegemony], the French used the UN to force the Israeli’s into a defeat in the latest round of Arab and Islamic violence against the liberal Jewish state. Of course the French promises which were the core of the UN cease-fire and new Resolution were immediately invalidated. In order to force the Jews to stop destroying their terrorist and Arab allies, the French convinced the Americans and the UN that a ceasefire, under French management, would allow for a lasting peace. What the French really want is good relations with the Arab world; a profitable trading and investment presence in Islamic states, and a method to insert themselves into international dialogues of consequence. They have no intention in Lebanon or elsewhere of helping end the Islamic war against civilization or protecting the rights of Jews in Israel to live in peace.

French perfidy in Lebanon, as elsewhere in the Arab world, is immediately obvious. The French promised thousands of troops as part of the UN resolution to end the conflict between an Islamic fascist group residing in a terror supporting state, and Israel. Of course the French had no intention of providing troops, or forcing French soldiers to engage in the bloody dismantlement of Hizbollah as promised by the Resolution, nor are they much interested in doing anything to upset their Islamic-Arab allies. The entire cease-fire and French sponsored Resolution is a sordid, sick joke. In fact the French plan is of course to do the opposite of what needs to be done; re-supply Hizbollah; recognize and legitimized its political and social activist groups; and demonize Israeli attempts at self defense.

The French promised thousands of troops to enforce the UN resolution which clearly stated that Hizbollah must be disarmed. Now of course the ‘thousands’ are down to 200 troops and 200 engineers. I never knew that structural engineering was critical in disbanding a terror group that supports a fascist ideology. Never in the history of man has a terrorist group willingly gave up its raison d’etre and armaments. Hizbollah has ignored all UN resolutions calling for its dismantlement and the respect of Israeli territory since 1989. It is hard to believe that a new UN resolution will accomplish anything intelligent especially if there are no troops to enforce it.

The Lebanese government is an open ally of the terrorist group and it is well known that the military commanders in the Lebanese army are sympathetic to Hizbollah. The Lebanese state is an active supporter of terror doing nothing to secure its own borders or deconstruct centers of drug trading in the Bekaa valley; importation of arms; and the spread of Hizbollah throughout society. Fully 80% of Lebanese Arabs support the terror group, many bought off by Iranian money, job contracts and social services, but many more attracted by the Islamic ideology of jihad; hate; martyrdom; and Jews killing. The fact that the Lebanese state has never condemned Hizbollah or tried to arrest its growth makes it a willing and complicit actor in Islamic terrorism.

Terrorist elements in Lebanon were supposed to be disbanded long ago. By the terms of the 1989 Taif Accord that ended Lebanon's civil war, all domestic Lebanese militias were to be disarmed or forced into the regular army. U.N. Security Council Resolution 1559 of 2004 makes the same demand, as does the current 1701 declaration. Yet the Lebanese state has never had any intention to disband Hizbollah. Its pro-Syrian Lebanese President Fuad who is also commander-in-chief of the army, has described the notion of disarming Hezbollah as "disgraceful". "How can they ask us to disarm while the blood of the martyrs is still warm?" he has recently whimpered. Fuad and others have made it clear that they will fight Israeli incursions into Lebanon even allying the Lebanese army with Hizbollah if necessary. In such a milieu of incompetence and Islamic-Arabic intolerance for peaceful settlements and the disbanding of the use of terror to achieve political goals, it is hard to be hopeful about the future of Lebanon.

The US and Israel need to learn [again] from the Lebanese case example. It is foolish not to fight a war to win. It is more foolish to allow the French to broker a toothless and useless UN resolution to allow Iran to resupply Hizbollah. US credibility is now at a low level in the region and beyond. The Arabs and Muslims don’t respect weakness; good intentions or appeasement. They only respect war, guns and blood. In a fight for civilization Rice, the US State Department and Israel might do well to keep that in mind. Listening to the perfidious French is not smart policy.
