"Oh Nasrallah, oh our cherished one, destroy, destroy Tel Aviv," they chanted.

Lebanese crowd breaks into U.N. HQ in Beirut

By Tom Perry

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese protesters broke into the United Nations headquarters in Beirut on Sunday, smashing windows and ransacking offices, after an Israeli air strike killed at least 40 people in south Lebanon. (the airstike was in response to a missil attack by Hezbooha)

Several thousand people massed outside the building in downtown Beirut chanting "Death to Israel, death to America. We sacrifice our blood and souls for Lebanon." (good lets bomb the whole country then)

By early afternoon, most protesters had drifted away leaving a few hundred people milling in a car park opposite the building, which was being protected by a line of Lebanese soldiers.

Geir Petersen, the personal representative of U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan in Lebanon, condemned the Israeli attack on the village of Qana and called for an immediate investigation. (yet where is his condemnation of the missile attack on inocent Israeli's that provoked it?)

"I strongly condemn today's killing of tens of civilians by Israeli shelling of residential buildings in the village of Qana," he said in a statement. (no condemnation for firing rockets from those buildings into Israel)

Petersen was not at the U.N. offices in Beirut when they were attacked.

U.N. spokesman Khaled Mansour said the building had been stoned and furniture smashed but no U.N. staff were hurt as they had taken refuge in the basement. He said a small fire was started on the second floor but it had been contained.

Demonstrators held aloft the flags of Lebanon, Hizbollah and the Amal party, whose leader, Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri, appealed for a halt to the attack.

"Give the world a chance to stand by us," he said on local television. (the REAL world condemns you for using civilians as shields to fire your rockets that YOU are firing at civilians in Israel)


Demonstrators tore down a United Nations flag outside the building and ripped it to shreds and called on Hizbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah to launch rocket attacks on Tel Aviv.

"Oh Nasrallah, oh our cherished one, destroy, destroy Tel Aviv," they chanted.

Members of Hizbollah, the Shi'ite group that sparked the war 19 days ago when it seized two Israeli soldiers and killed eight in a cross-border raid, tried to restrain the crowd.

The protesters gathered after an Israeli attack early on Sunday killed at least 40 people, including 23 children, in the southern Lebanese village of Qana. (in response to a missile attack on Israeli civilians from that location)

Following the attack, Lebanon canceled a planned visit by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Sunday, saying she was unwelcome until a ceasefire was declared. ( thats fine then lets Carpet Bomb Lebanon since they refuse to stop Hezbooha and today even thanked them. It is obvious that Hezbooha is acting with the blessing of the Lebanese Government. The country and Government of Lebanon is guilty of an un-provoked attack against a neighboring country, firing rockets into civilian areas to KILL civilians, and using it's own citizens as human shields for these attacks.)

At least 523 Lebanese, mostly civilians, have been killed since the conflict started and there is growing anger in Lebanon that the international community has not done enough to stop it. (there is also anger that Lebanon refuses to stop Hezbooha from targeting civilians in Israel and using the Lebanese people as human shields)

"It's tense, we understand the anger and the rage of the people outside because of the Israeli shelling, but we don't understand why the U.N. building and its staff, many of them Lebanese, are to blame," said Mansour, speaking from the basement of the UN building. (because the people of the Muslim Street are collaborators in Terror and care nothing about inocents. They have provoked a war, and are whining that the other side is shooting back. Boo Hoo)

The ridiculousness of this situation grows each and everyday. Israel was attacked, Israel has continued to be attacked. Those that attacked refuse to stop attacking yet everyone DEMANDS that Israel STOP DEFENDING HERSELF. It's time to just completly destroy Lebanon, Syria, and Iran....
