Yet more Hezbollywood

There’s something strangely familiar about these pictures taken today, and I don’t think it’s the way the severed arm just happens to be lying with aesthetic perfection a few inches from the dead body.

Hang on a minute, isn't that - Green Helmet Guy?

Goodness me, fancy him being around to milk every last drop of propaganda from a situation.

Update. Oh, I see EU Referendum is already on the case.

According to EU Referendum, the dead body is of a man who was supposed to be driving a van-load of bread when this van got hit by a missile.

There're several things wrong with this set of circumstances.

Firstly, that body is lying flat out prone on the ground, yet he didn't bleed out there; there isn't enough blood on the ground.

Secondly, if he did crawl there, why did he pick up his severed arm, take it with him, then artistically plonk it at the side whilst he lay down and died?

Thirdly, where's his van got to? Any explosion capable of blasting his arm off isn't going to leave the van driveable, so where is it?

Fourthly, this is a van that got hit by a missile, right? So where's the load of instant breadcrumbs? I can imagine people stealing undamaged bread, but not bread covered in the blood of the dying driver. Where is it?

Finally, what the hell is Green Helmet doing there? For a bloke who just happens to be passing by, he happens an awful lot.

my goodness, you mean that EMT's in Lebanon might actually respond to more than one call a day? What's the body count now? 300? And this guy just happens upon two incidents? Why that must be theater - but then again, they call war a theater, don't they?

You're trying to hard to make them look bad. Even if this was staged, the fact that Isreal is killing innocents and about 10 Lebanese for every 1 Israeli dead, the truth is that it's quickly turning ugly, and Israel is getting high on bloodlust.

So let's see then - this is the ONLY EMT in the whole of Lebanon and who covers Qana, Beruit AND Tyre? And all in the space of three days? He's been spotted at several incidents not just two.

Israel is killing innocents - true but unfortunately until Hezbollah come out from behind the womens' skirts and the childrens' bodies then the IDF have little choice. AND of course the 700 'civilians' killed were ALL civilians and not a single Hezbollah fighter amongst them....

What is Green Helmet?

He is not a paramedic, clearly. He may be a doctor, I suppose, though he does not carry any bag or identifying gear with him. He could be a voyeur who gets off on the sight of mutilated corpses. His presence in these photos - not the mention his appearance in another snuff movie, in Beirut in 1996 - is certainly causing some curiosity.

Israel is suffering fewer civilian casualties because she is evacuating and putting them in bomb-shelters (i.e. protecting them). Israel values the lives of her people, unlike the Hezbollah bullyboys, for whom civilian casualties are more valuable than any number of guns and rocketss.

In reading some of the other sites about Qana, he is identified as a coroner. It surely simplifies the procurement of photo op corpses. Check EUReferendum for his identity. It may also have something to do with the stiffness of some of the "victims" in Qana. Green Helment is the hardest working coroner in Lebanon.

The photographer who took all those pix of the Green Helmet Guy is Adnan Hajj, who also turned in a picture of huge plumes of smoke billowing up from Beirut that was a blatant Photo Shop fake. He was working for Reuters, who has fired him.
Hajj staged all those photos.

All the photo ops were theatre, including Green Helmet guy carrying children's corpses from venue to venue for photo calls.

If he's a coroner, uh-huh, why isn't he performing autopsies in his lab? They would have us believe there is plenty of work for him to do? Where did the green helmet come from, given that other people aren't wearing helmets? Why does he want to give the impression that he's among bombs and smoking buildings as Photo-shopped by Hajj?

Who is he working for?

Oh! Silly me!

Ive got an Idear that will keep the likes of thehomelessguy happy.

The Israeli government should tell their people to get out of the air-raid shelters and stand in the open. Failing this they should kill their own children to keep the numbers more equal. After all we cant have the BBC getting upset can we?

Luckely the state does not yet give homes to rabid anti-semitic dogs.

Homeless guy says: "the fact that Isreal is killing innocents and about 10 Lebanese for every 1 Israeli dead, the truth is that it's quickly turning ugly, and Israel is getting high on bloodlust."

No, Hezbollah is killing innocents. Hezbollah is storing munitions in working schools. They are launching rockets from innocent people's homes (yes they are; there are videos of Hezbollah rockets being launched from homes and villages)and if Israel wants to stop this aggression, it has to destroy those venues. What Israel does, and Hezbollah does not, is litter the area with warning leaflets in advance - giving people advance notice that it will be responding to an attack.

So you see, Homeless Guy, Hezbollah are killing Lebanese people by turning them, against their will, into human shields. This is very wicked, I think you will agree.

Hezbollah is a terrorist outfit funded by the Iranians. Israeli is a legitimate state under seige.

You must learn to be more discriminating in your interpretation of the news you read. One idea is to discount anything you see or hear on the BBC.

Booze-addled wingnuts. Anything looks "suspicious" through the thick beer googles you guys observe the World.

God, schedule the interventions...

BTW - I noticed that Green Helmut Guy was on the BBC world news today.

In an innovative attempt to change his persona he has used masking tape to cover his green helmut....the green still shows through pretty clearly.
Same glasses, same patchy beard, same stupid safety vest over the flack jacket.

Always on hand at the lates photo-op with walkie talke in hand.

The 'green-helmet' is an army one.
Supposed to protect against bullets, certainly not good for "Emergency workers"
Not to mention it is probably a precious shield (as we don't see too many wearing it).
Whoever wears this is probably a Hezbollah fighter, or a high-level commander.

no i have a better idea - let's reduce the massive US annual economic and military aid to the isrealis and start giving hezbollah necessary destructive fire power to equally massacre some of the civilians in isreal, instead of using there useless bottle rockets - on second thought we'd better not then the fight might be equal...
