‘Israel’ Eyeing Reoccupation of Sinai / al-Manar (Hizb’ullah news)
The article itself is complete and utter nonsense, of course, but it is pretty amusing to see how al-Manar struggles with designators for Israel and Israelis, without acknowledging the sovereign existence of the state.
WASHINGTON — An “Israeli” official in Washington refuses to comment on the prospect that its military forces may try to reoccupy the Sinai Peninsula in response to an Egyptian pull-back of its police, the continued sabotage of a natural gas pipeline that supplies the Jewish state with more than 40 percent of its energy, and the growing perception that the Zionist state could face attacks from there.
And more classic “disproving a negative” by the brains at al-Manar:
When asked to comment on the prospect that “Israel” may attempt to regain the Sinai militarily, “Israeli” Embassy spokesman Jonathan Peled refused to respond to the inquiry, thereby raising concern that such a possibility exists.
Peled refuses to answer stupid, leading questions from an antagonistic Lebanese journalist, so the journalist ambles off to make stuff up. Oh, well. As if we should expect any different. Of course, this silly article raises greater and more serious questions about the effort being undertaken by Hizb’ullah to draw attention to Israel and away from their Syrian patrons. It will be interesting to follow the development of the PR offensive by supporters of the Assad regime.
