Hezbollah's Human Shields in Lebanon

Dry Bones cartoon - Hizbullah's use of human shields in Lebanon

Hezbollah's strategy seems to be based on the concept that the more civilians that get killed in Lebanon the better the chances for Hezbollah to get international outrage going.
Unfortunately they can't even fool the UN!!

This week the UN humanitarian chief accused Hezbollah of "cowardly blending" among Lebanese civilians and causing the deaths of hundreds during two weeks of cross-border violence with Israel. He said this after a visit to Lebanon on his mission to coordinate an international aid effort.
For more info check out background reports at the Israel Project.

Meanwhile, Mohsen Rezai, Iranian Expediency Council Secretary (and former Commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guards) says that if Hezbollah's "patience runs out" there will be "chaos in Tel Aviv".

He doesn't like Condi's support for Israel and so he wants the American Secretary of State tried as a War Criminal and he calls on the "Legal experts of the Islamic World" to "Prepare some kind of legal action against her."

Thanks to the translators at MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute), you can read a transcript or see a video of Rezai's rant.
