UN Acts In Lebanon
By Micah Halpern

Sunday July 8, 2007

I've Been Thinking:

United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) have broken with tradition.
UNIFIL raided and arrested a terrorist group that was planning to attack a UN German Military boat.
That is not what UN Forces usually do.

But these are not usual times.
UN forces have been hit very hard of late. The last attack took place on June 24th when 6 Spanish soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb set by terrorists.

The terrorists planning the military boat attack were not the same group that perpetrated the June 24th bombing. These terrorists were not yet perpetrators, they were in training, plotting a future event. They were arrested at their training facility in northern Lebanon, on the shore, practicing land sea maneuvers.

In the eyes of the terrorists UN troops are easy targets.
In uncovering the terrorist plot and then actually arresting the terrorists the UN is acknowledging that they are no longer simply observers in Lebanon.
UN Forces must do more than simply defend themselves - they must search out and destroy the terrorists.

Congratulations to the United Nations.
Congratulations for finally standing up and doing the right thing.
