WHILE THE FRENCH THINK THEY'RE THERE TO FIGHT THE ISRAELIS:

Israel warns UNIFIL of al-Qaida attack (Associated Press, THE JERUSALEM POST, Dec. 8, 2006)

Israel has warned the UN force in Lebanon that al-Qaida is planning an attack on international peacekeepers, Israel TV reported Friday.

The report said Israel had received intelligence that al-Qaida's deputy chief, Ayman al-Zawahri, had issued the order to attack the peacekeepers. It did not give details on the source of the information or when the attack might take place.

There were no new videos or messages from al-Zawahri posted Friday on militant Web sites where he usually releases statements.

But in a video released this year marking the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks in the US, al-Zawahri denounced the beefed-up UN peacekeeping force in Lebanon.


We understand the phenomenon well enough by now to say with a reasonable degree of certainty that UNIFIL is practically an open invitation to suicide bombers.

Al Qaida is a damned nuisance.

But Israel is the enemy.

Both are enemies of the French.
