Israeli Jets ‘Incinerate’ Fleeing Family

From: Agence France-Presse
by Jihad Siqlawi in Tyre

July 16, 2006

ELEVEN children and seven adults were killed overnight in southern Lebanon, their bodies consumed by flames when an Israeli warplane opened fire on the convoy they were in, UN peacekeepers and hospital sources said.
Their charred remains were extracted from the wreckage of the minibus and car they were travelling in and taken to hospital.

A doctor, Ali Zeineddine, said they were burned alive.

"It is very difficult to identify the bodies or to distinguish between girls or boys, as the 18 victims perished from the fire triggered by incendiary shells. They grilled," he said.

They had been among residents fleeing villages close to the Israeli border and were killed when missiles struck a car and a minibus near Shamaa, hospital sources said. The children were aged between 7 and 12.

An officer with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), who was involved in the evacuation operation, told AFP that his team removed most of the burnt bodies.

"Some of them were thrown on olive trees and even on haystacks," said the officer, who declined to be named.

An AFP correspondent saw the blackened bodies of five of those killed, a father and his four children, at the hospital in Tyre.

The father of two of the other children killed, Mahmoud Ghannam, 55, who was not with the targeted convoy, broke down when he arrived at the hospital.

"My God, my God. I can't make out the faces of my children. They are burnt black... Which ones are my children?" he cried, repeatedly hitting his head with his hands.

"My God, Israel is the enemy of mankind," he wailed.

Here's a blast from the past, back when the UN was relevant:

UN General Assembly Resolution 3379

At Saturday, July 15, 2006, Blogger qrswave said...

Many thanks, Anon, for that invaluable link.

It deserves posting in full:


RECALLING its resolution 1904 (XVIII) of 20 November 1963, proclaiming the United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, and in particular its affirmation that "any doctrine of racial differentiation or superiority is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous" and its expression of alarm at "the manifestations of racial discrimination still in evidence in some areas in the world, some of which are imposed by certain Governments by means of legislative, administrative or other measures",

RECALLING ALSO that, in its resolution 3151 G (XXVIII) of 14 December 1953, the General Assembly condemned, inter alia, the unholy alliance between South African racism and Zionism,

TAKING NOTE of the Declaration of Mexico on the Equality of Women and Their Contribution to Development and Peace 1975, proclaimed by the World Conference of the International Women's Year, held at Mexico City from 19 June to 2 July 1975, which promulgated the principle that "international co-operation and peace require the achievement of national liberation and independence, the elimination of colonialism and neo-colonialism, foreign occupation, Zionism, apartheid and racial discrimination in all its forms, as well as the recognition of the dignity of peoples and their right to self-determination",

TAKING NOTE ALSO of resolution 77 (XII) adopted by the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the Organization of African Unity at its twelfth ordinary session, held at Kampala from 28 July to 1 August1975, which considered "that the racist regime in occupied Palestine and the racist regime in Zimbabwe and South Africa have a common imperialist origin, forming a whole and having the same racist structure and being organically linked in their policy aimed at repression of the dignity and integrity of the human being",

TAKING NOTE ALSO of the Political Declaration and Strategy to Strengthen International Peace and Security and to Intensify Solidarity and Mutual Assistance among Non-Aligned Countries, adopted at the Conference of Ministers for Foreign Affairs of Non-Aligned Countries held at Lima from 25 to 30 August 1975, which most severely condemned Zionism as a threat to world peace and security and called upon all countries to oppose this racist and imperialist ideology,

DETERMINES that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination."

Racial discrimination funded by US tax dollars. We refused to support apartheid in South Africa, why do we support Zionist Apartheid?

At Saturday, July 15, 2006, Blogger qrswave said...

They won't even settle for apartheid along the 67 borders.

They want it ALL and are apparently content in spilling rivers of blood to get it.

As much as I love your reporting, you have to be very careful about dates and times, so please post the date and time GMT.

For instance: the Lebananese family & convoy was reported incinerated this morning Los Angeles time, which is evening Lebanese time. So reading your blog from LA tonight I scratched my head and asked myself, "Is this a new family convoy that as been incinerated or is it the one that was incinerated yesterday?"

You guys are doing great work, but in order to be truly great journalists just remember "G*d lies in the details" or rather a truly great investigative piece lies in the details.

In the future if you want to have concrete proof that it was Israel that instigated war on Gaza and Lebanon, you better have every article archived and saved with a time stamp. Because the Israeli papers are notorious for changing their stories.

P.S. And hyperlink everything -- I want to see the link to Sean McCormack of the State Department's quote about Americans being trapped. Every single claim you make, especially if you're quoting, should be hyperlinked.

Just a little advice from an old journalism pro. Again, your work is fantastic.

Israel killing those Lebanese children is perfectly acceptable. Had they committed suicide in protest of Israel's war on Lebanon, it would have been an act of asymmetrical warfare. Make sense?

Here's a site you should add to your list, and actively promote:


It's a STRONGLY FREE-SPEECH ITALIAN website (in English too!), that is VERY ACTIVISM and PROGRESSIVE. They are like the readers of this site (minus the Zionist Trolls)!

Nine Israelis were killed by a Katyusha rocket into Haifa, but you don't give a shit about Israeli deaths, do you? When an Israeli dies, you don't get to glorify the death cult terrorism of the Palestinians and Hezbollah.

To 'disaffected youth':

15 Lebanese civilians were burned to death by an Israeli jet while trying to to flee from the Jewish terrorists bombing their country. But you don't care about goyim deaths, do you? When the Palestinians die from Israeli terrorist attacks it reveals what Zionists really are: racists who have no regard for 'goyim' lives. You have no ethics, no moral ground to stand on. Only by lying you are able create sympathy for the destructive religious cult to which you belong (Talmudic Judaism).

You really are an antisemitic idiot, aren't you?

I will never forgive the terrorists for forcing Israel to kill civilians. NEVER.

I am not happy when a civilian dies, and neither are Israelis. However, Israel has the right to exist, and the terrorists purposely hide amongst civilians in order to increase civilian deaths, so qrswave and yourself can then feast upon those civilian deaths in the way that you do.

It's really quite simple. By glorifying each death, you play right into the terrorists' hands. This is why you are anti-Palestinian. This is why qrswave is anti-Palestinian.

I am against ALL death. This is why I am pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian.

qrswave and yourself seem to only believe in "hate Israel first" and really nothing else.

'disaffected youth'

You really are a racist Zionist who believes all 'goyim' are inferior "idiots", aren't you?

Do you expect the Lebanese to forgive the Israeli war crimes against them? Do you expect the Palestinians to forgive the terrorist attacks by Israel over the past week or so that caused so much suffering? Did the Jews forgive the racist Nazis for their war crimes?

Every action causes a reaction. Because with each Israeli terrorist bombing of civilians, peace is getting further and further away. The hatred and anger is growing with each Zionist attack on civilians in Gaza and Lebanon.

If Israel accepts the non-Jewish people as equal human beings, and treats them with a little respect (rather than believe in those foolish old ideas in the Talmud about goyim being "animals in human form created to serve") then that would be the first step on the road toward peaceful coexistance.

Michael Price:

Why do you keep throwing that loose term around. Again for the nth time:

Palestinians are Semitic. Jordanians are Semetic. Lebanese are Semitic. Syrians are Semitic. Palestian Jews are Semitic. BUT Ashkenazi "jews" are NOT Semitic.

Semitic refers to the people of that 'bloodline' that live in that general area, of which includes modern day Palestine. Ashkenazi 'jews' like yourself are EUROPEAN and KHAZARIAN. The Arabs and people of the middle east, such as the Palestinians HAVE NOT GONE ANYWHERE IN THE LAST TWO THOUSAND YEARS!!! They are the descendents of ancient times.

By supporting ETHNIC CLEANSING of Palestinians, Lebanese, Syrians, Egyptians, etc ---- The so-called "jews" are killing and discriminating are being ANTI-SEMITIC, the same name-calling they make when their "feelings" are "hurt".

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> the 'Israeli settlers' who came from EUROPE and RUSSIA are "white", whereas the people in the middle-east are dark-olive/brown. Not only are their skin colors different, but their FACIAL FEATURES are different. The so-called 'Isreali' FOREIGN settlers have more PHENOTYPIC features in common with your typical EUROPEAN than they do with your typical ARAB. They look nothing like Saddam Huessein, or Arafat, or any of the ORIGINAL INHABITANTS of the middle east.

So what does it mean that "purposed the land legally" before moving there. If say I purchased land legally in America, and I come from Europe, or Asia, or Africa -------- Does it mean I'm "American" or for that matter "ABORIGINAL NATIVE"?!!!

That's the STUPIDIST excuse today!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Miss R, you STILL HAVEN'T ANSWERED NOR ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF ASHKENAZI. You are aware, aren't you of the history behind Ashkenazi Jews and Shephardic Jews and Jews who lived in Palestine for the last 2 thousand years, don't you?!

Ashkenazi Jews are actually a group of people who originated in Khazaria in SW Russia. Sphephardic Jew are the ones living OUTSIDE of Palestine (or what YOU would consider Israel) for that last thousand or hundreds of years (depending on the particular family), and have SOME, only some of the original "semitic blood" --- because of "mixing of impure" goy blood with "holy pure blood of the 'chosen ones' (TM)" --- GOD (TM) forbid, for them to do such a thing. These Sphephardic Jews have more similar genetics and facial features to those living in the middle east, such as the "Arabs" (Palestinians, Saudis, Jordanians, Kurds, etc).

And then there are the Palestinian Jews whose family for generations upon generations, upon generations, upon generations, for close to the last two thousand years (depending on whether the family converted into/out-of 'Judaism') LIVED IN PEACE IN PALESTINE. In fact, a scientific GENETIC RESEARCH was done that found that Palestinian Jews and Palestinian Muslims have virtually IDENTICAL genes, and that it was STATISTICALLY NON-DIFFERENTIABLE.

Now can you guess whom put pressure to have the Scientific Article REMOVED?! Some group of people with something to hide. Now would that group with so much power, that have JDL, AIPAC, PNAC as their branches, would they be:

a) Ashkenazi Jews
b) Shephardic Jews
c) Palestinian/Yisrael Jews
d) Stupid/"Useful" Goyims

Now Miss R, if you're really a "jew" as you claim, then you must have "some" grasp of the discrimination within the "jewish community" of Shephardic Jews and Palestinian Jews --------- somehow, as if these are SUB-GROUPS, that are of a class LOWER than then "true jew" (LOL).

There was a time when the Ashkenazi "jews" were just the minority, but now these blue-eye, blond/light brown haired (and sometimes RED HEADED FRECKLED "Irish") are the MAJORITY.

.................. Miss R, just as a curiosity, which category do you fall under?! a) or b) or c) ---- I don't think it's d).

How can any American in their right mind stand idle while this carnage occurs with the fruits of our hard earned labor?
