Did Hezbollah Do The Unthinkable?
I think we generally underestimate the horrible acts of which the most committed Islamo-fascists are capable. I don’t know why, given that we know they are capable of mass murder of innocents on airplanes or in buildings, but we do still underestimate them.
I can’t say if the troubling coincidences represented in these photos are just that, coincidence, or if it is yet another level of depravity to which a terrorist enemy has sunk. You’ll have to be the judge of that for yourself.
There are some things we do know.
Several reports indicated that many of the child victims were handicapped, or disabled. You can see it here on Ynet news, for example. And one of the sources for similar reports is a Lebanese PM, Bahia Hariri. I believe she is the widow of the murdered Rafik Hariri.
‘Disabled children placed inside building’
"We have it from a credible source that Hizbullah, alarmed by Siniora’s plan, has concocted an incident that would help thwart the negotiations. Knowing full well that Israel will not hesitate to bombard civilian targets, Hizbullah gunmen placed a rocket launcher on the roof in Qana and brought disabled children inside, in a bid to provoke a response by the Israeli Air Force. In this way, they were planning to take advantage of the death of innocents and curtail the negotiation initiative," the site stated.
… "There were 15 physically or mentally handicapped children among the children killed in Qana," said Bahia Hariri, who represents south Lebanon.
A comment on a camera blog post mirrors some of the thoughts I’ve had when looking at some of the images of dead children from Qana.
In addition to the article you quoted from the Lebanese site, france-echos.com, a French anti-Islamic site, quotes an anonymous nurse who noticed that all of the published photographs of the dead children showed signs of physical handicaps. She commented (my translation):
"The probability that the families in the building had several multiply-handicapped children, that all of these children had been killed, and that all of the publicized photographs would show precisely these children, is the probability of winning the lottery. On the other hand, the probability that members of Hezbollah scored a two-for-one by relieving themselves of their burdens while playing the innocent victims seems much more credible to me."
I can’t say I don’t see troubling similarities between the first image I posted on the right and some victims from Qana. The children above have Cerebal Palsy but are not reported as being in Qana. They are, or perhaps were hospitalized in a Hezbollah strong hold in Beirut.

The similarities in body position between those children and the two children from Qana pictured above Left are obvious. What that means, if it means anything at all, I can’t say for sure. They are two children I suggested appeared from around the mysterious corner mentioned in this post. It certainly appears to be a troubling coincidence, at best.
I’m also including a second cropped image from Qana, as the child does appear to have something of an unusual facial or head structure, again similar to one of the children pictured above who, according to the date of the report, were alive and near Beirut on July 26th. I believe that’s days before the incident in Qana.
Another item is that many of the children in Qana appear to have their hair cropped very short, even the females. This is often done in third world hospitals to cut down on lice infestations and other hygiene issues.
I cannot say for certain they are the same children. But if they are, then we would know where some of the children in Qana may have come from. A previous post I made gave me a chill when I thought about it later.
In thinking about it, I realized that the Hezbollah operative cited below was interested in finding how how many people had come by to visit the scene of the alleged massacre. Evidently after learning of the prolific coverage the event received, he was happy … he felt they had won the war. How does one defeat an enemy who thinks they get closer to winning every time more of their own dead children appear in pictures and on our television screens?
As she walked through the ruins of the neighborhood of Hayal Jumma, trying to remember who lived where, a burly man in a brown T-shirt with a handgun in his belt and a two-way radio walked up and identified himself as a Hezbollah man. He wouldn’t give his name, but he wanted to know who had come to see the ruins.
His radio cracked and he spoke. Within minutes, three other men arrived.
"I think we won the war. This (debate over a possible) cease-fire is about politics, but I think the war is won by us," the first said, refusing to give his name.
