Critical recent events in Middle East history will be addressed within the presentation, as Elamine will speak about the 2006 Israeli attack on Lebanon, the 2007 general strike and opposition protests within the context of Hezbollah’s role in Lebanese society.

Brian Aboud: Presenting on Tadamon!’s campaign to challenge the listing of Hezbollah as a ‘terrorist’ organization in Canada. Today, Canada is one of only three countries world-wide to designate Hezbollah as a ‘terrorist’ organization. The other two are Israel and the United States.

Using powerful and disturbing images, the film tells a story of yet another war on Lebanon: 1,200 killed, 4,000 injured, one million displaced, 78 bridges destroyed, 15,000 homes damaged, 15,000 tonnes of oil spilled on 80km of the Mediterranean coastline, 57 collective massacres and much more. Director Mansour takes you into the harsh realities of a nation devastated by war and a people caught under siege.

Est-ce que le débat sera mis en ligne sur le site Tadamon ? Si oui, et si vous m’en donnez l’accord, j’aimerais le mettre sur mon site ISM-France, ça va être passionnant, et il faut absolument contrer le glissement de : résistants = terroristes (comme antisionistes = antisémites d’ailleurs aussi….). On a encore du boulot….

Hi every one,
it has never been called before, resistance is not a terror, it is honorable to defent your country, look to the french resistance and others in the whole world.
therefore, it will never, ever been a terrorist.
on the other hand, who makes Qana massacres in 1996 and 2006 should be clacified a terroriste.
i hope peoples open their mind , eyes and read articles wrtten by independent
persons before listening to any news directed by zeionist or peoples on the back of them

The US had put the construction (rebuilding after the summer 2006 war) company own inderectly by Hezbollah on the terrorist list. He, who opposite Israel is a terrorist and He who help those who oppose Israel is a terrorist. Israel is responsible for the Palestinian refugies in Lebanon because it has preoduce them from their terror land grabing in the 1940ts.

who has occupied the Palestine?, who kills innocent children everyday?, who is the real terrorist? I ask, who is really defending?
It’s time to open the eyes.

Well it looks like everyone here enjoys preaching to the choir. Here is the reality:
1. At least some part of Hezbollah engages in terrorism. It would have been much harder to say this before July 2006, but it is ridiculous to say that firing rockets at civilians in cities is not terrorism. Hezbollah does a lot of beneficial things for lebanese people, but at this point it clearly has accepted terrorism as a tactic.
2. It is reasonable to argue that Israel engaged in collective punishment of Lebanon given its strikes on intrastructure.
3. If you say Israel engages in terrorism for this reason than obviously so does Hezbollah. Then you have to admit they are both terrorists.

Can any Lebanese-sympathizing person here agree to that?

there is one thing we must recognize everyone uses terrorism to fight terrorism. think about the us and iraq ask yourself ho many innocent Iraqis died i dont think you can validly say that that isn’t terrorism. hezbola and israel have both done bad things, but between israel and palestine palestine has suffered the most. they “accidently” ran over someone with a bulldozer. they “accidently” bulldozed palestinians home while they were still in it . who “accidently” shot missiles in to crowds of hundreds of innocent people to kill 3 terrorists? who indeed. calling hezbollah a terrorist group is the same as calling america’s liberators terrorists. ill tell you this suicide bombings are very bad, and as far as im concerned (im a muslim) suicide is a way to go to hell. blowing yourself up isn’t jihad. inshaallah palistine will bee free again. ALLAHHUAKBAR
