Jennifer Griffin on FOX News just said that there is a new development. Syria is amassing tanks and anti-tank weapons on the Israeli-Syrian border. It does not look like a cease-fire will happen. Agreeing to the cease-fire has made Israel look weak and her enemies smell blood. The sharks are circling.

Psalm 122

6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
"May those who love you be secure.

7 May there be peace within your walls
and security within your citadels."

8 For the sake of my brothers and friends,
I will say, "Peace be within you."

9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek your prosperity.

Iran fulfilling destructive role in Middle East

Interior Security Minister Avi Dichter said during a meeting with Javier SOLANA, EU High Representative, that "Iran is fulfilling a destructive role in the Middle East and is fanning the flames in the region."

"Iran is fanning the fire at the expense of Lebanon through Hizbullah, and at the expense of the Palestinians through Hamas," said Dichter.

Arab seized at PM's office with 'suspicious material' in shoes
By News Agencies

Security guards at Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's office detected "suspicious material" Sunday in the shoes of an Arab man waiting to enter the building, a spokeswoman said.

Sappers took the shoes and carried out a controlled explosion. Three loud
booms were heard. Police announced over loudspeaker that visitors were not allowed to leave the building for the time being.

The man was taken for questioning then released a short time later after bomb disposal experts found they contained no explosive materials, police said.

The man had sought to get access to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's offices but had been stopped during a routine security check, when his shoes aroused suspicion.

At the time of the incident, journalists and camera teams were gathered near the entrance, waiting for the end of the cabinet meeting during which government ministers were to approve a UN cease-fire deal.

Iranian FM meets Mubarak in Egypt
Associated Press, THE JERUSALEM POST    Aug. 13, 2006

Egypt's president Hosni Mubarak has told the visiting Iranian foreign minister that his government should help in world efforts to bring stability back to war-battered Lebanon, Egyptian official media reported Sunday.

Ahead of Mubarak's meeting with Mottaki, the state-owned Al Gomhuria quoted "a senior official source" at Mubarak's office as saying the Egyptian leader plans to urge Iran to support diplomacy in Lebanon.

"Egypt believes that it would be wise to work at easing tension in order to avoid any further escalation that would threaten the existence of Lebanon as an Arab state," the official told the paper.

The official said that Mottaki was intending to press for Egypt to forge a unified Egyptian-Iranian stance in support of Hizbullah and against Israel's invasion of southern Lebanon.

"The Egyptian position is that the region cannot bear more tension," the Egyptian official said. Egypt will press for the full implementation of the international resolutions on Lebanon, he added. The UN resolution unanimously approved Friday calls for the withdrawal of Israel's 30,000 troops in Lebanon and the deployment of an international peacekeeping mission on the border.

The Egyptian president, a key US ally, met for over an hour with Mottaki in his summer retreat, a former royal palace in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria. Later, Mottaki held separate talks with his Egyptian counterpart Ahmed Aboul Gheit.

Mottaki, who traveled to Turkey and Yemen in recent day, was on a regional tour to drum up support for Huzbollah.

Egypt has blamed Hizbullah for provoking the war but also accused Israel of overreacting by launching air raids that have destroyed most of Lebanon's infrastructure and killed more than 700 people - largely civilians.

Israel charges that Iran is aiding Hezbollah on the ground in Lebanon as well as supplying the guerrillas with weapons. Iran has denied the charges.

Relations between Iran and Egypt recently improved, but ties have been strained for years. Egypt has accused Iran of supporting the militants who killed President Anwar Sadat in 1981 and Iran was angered when Egypt took in its ousted Shah after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Iran only has a diplomatic mission in Cairo.

Meanwhile in Teheran, the Iranian Foreign Ministry gave a cool welcome to the UN Security Council resolution for a cease-fire in Lebanon, criticizing its late approval.

"The resolution is inconsistent," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told reporters. "Its late approval has damaged reputation of the UN Security Council," said Teheran - itself under the threat of a UN resolution if it does not freeze its contentious nuclear program.

The spokesman said Iran expects "the Zionist regime and its supporters abide by the resolution."

Teheran is the main backer of the Shi'ite Muslim Hezbollah guerrilla, which triggered the current violence by capturing two Israeli soldiers in a brazen cross-border raid on July 12.

Iran's FM briefs reporters on his talks with Egyptian officials
Iskandariyah, Aug 13, IRNA

Egypt-Iran-Mottaki
Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Sunday briefed reporters on the outcome his meeting with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit.

On the third leg of his regional tour, Mottaki arrived in Iskandariyah, Egypt, Saturday night to hold talks with senior Egyptian officials and convey President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's message to his Egyptian counterpart.

After his three-our meeting with President Mubarak, Mottaki along with his Egyptian counterpart took part in a joint press conference.

"The meeting was quite positive and mainly centered on regional developments, including Lebanon and the Zionist regime's wide-scale aggressions on that country.

"Given that we are situated in a significant region, obviously it is quite natural for regional developments to influence all the countries and nations of the region," he added.

He said that about developments in Lebanon, the attempts of just one country is not in question, but collective efforts are required.

"The Arab League and Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) held various sessions to assess the Lebanese crisis, including the Cairo meeting, foreign ministers meeting in Beirut and OIC meeting in Malaysia, which demonstrated the need to pursue regional developments collectively.

"Of course, part of such attempts were fruitful and some of the points included in the United Nations Security Council's resolution on Lebanon are the consequence of such efforts," he said.

Turning to Hizbollah as part of Lebanon, he said that decision about Lebanon should be made by the Lebanese people themselves, adding that Iran has always supported such a unanimous decision by the Lebanese and will continue its support in future.

In response to a question about Iran's role in the possible disarmament of Hizbollah, he said, "Let the Lebanese themselves decide about it. In fact, the consensus and decision of Lebanese people should be respected."
The minister said that Lebanese nation, similar to other regional nations, showed that they hold talks about whatever is in their interest among themselves to come up with proper decisions, adding that such unanimous decisions will be supported by Iran.

About US charges against Iran on its nuclear issue, he said that it is quite natural for the US to accuse others.

"The US says that it has the right to access nuclear weapons, but others not entitled to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes," he stated.

Concerning Iran-Egypt ties, he referred to Egypt's significant regional stance and said that Iranian officials have been exchanging views with their Egyptian brothers at various levels.

"The commonalties between the two states including significant international and regional issues as well as their common concerns contribute to their common approach to many issues.

"Egyptian president expounded on his views on various matters, which was quite beneficial for me," he added.

Mottaki said that he and President Mubarak also discussed their support for Lebanese brothers and sisters along with other Islamic and Arab states, given that this was the key point of President Ahmadinejad's message to his Egyptian counterpart.

Mottaki, who is heading a high-ranking political delegation, wound up an official visit to Yemen and arrived in Egypt on an official visit.

He set off for Turkey on Friday on the first leg of his tour of regional states. During his stay in Turkey, he held talks with Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul.

Mottaki is expected to leave Egypt this afternoon.

Lebanon envoy: Truce will be Israel's last

Lebanon's UN ambassador bitterly slammed Israel's month-long bombardment of his country ahead of a hard-won truce, and vowed that the treaty would be Israel's last with any Middle East country.

"Lebanon will be, I think, the last state to sign a peace treaty with Israel," UN ambassador Nouhad Mahmoud told CNN television's "Late Edition" program. The diplomat added that the 15,000 Lebanese soldiers to be dispatched to south Lebanon to help keep the peace alongside a similarly-sized international UN force "are not going to use force" to disarm the Hizbullah militia which has been battling Israel.

Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah: We Will Respect Cessation of Hostilities but Have the Natural Right to Carry Out Resistance as Long as Israeli Soldiers Occupy Our Land

Following are excerpts from a speech delivered by Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, which aired on Al-Manar TV on August 12, 2006:

Hassan Nasrallah: Today, we are facing the natural, logical, and possible results of the great steadfastness displayed by the Lebanese in the different battle-fields.

[...]

In the event that a time is set for the cessation of what was called hostility - they can call it what they like... If an agreement is reached for a specific time, following the efforts of the U.N. secretary-general and in coordination with Lebanon and the enemy's government... Any time that will be declared for the cessation of hostilities will be respected by the resistance without any hesitation. Within this context, before and after this declaration, I stress that the resistance is a reaction, and therefore, when the hostile Israeli actions cease, the reactions displayed by the resistance will consequently and natural cease.

[...]

We said we agreed to the idea of deploying the Lebanese army, reinforced by the UNIFIL forces, and we adhere to this position. When it is decided to deploy the army and the UNIFIL forces, they will encounter, on the part of the resistance, all the cooperation, the facilitation, and the necessary readiness, Allah willing.

[...]

As long as there is Israeli military activity and an Israeli attack on the ground, and as long as Israeli soldiers occupy our land, it is our natural right to confront and fight them, and to defend our lands, our homes, and ourselves. Naturally, therefore, as long as the Israelis continue their occupation and aggression, resistance is our natural right and the right of the entire Lebanese people. We will carry out this resistance, in any way that we consider to be efficient and effective. In this context, and as was mentioned yesterday in the speeches preceding the vote on the international resolution, the 1996 "April Understandings" will be the deciding framework for field confrontations of this kind. I say that we naturally adhere to the "April Understandings," and we call upon the enemy to adhere to these understandings.

Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah: We Will Respect Cessation of Hostilities but Have the Natural Right to Carry Out Resistance as Long as Israeli Soldiers Occupy Our Land

They do that, it breakes part 5 of the treaty.

Lebanese Tourism Minister Joe Sarkis: The War - An Iranian Attempt to Resolve Its Nuclear Issues through Lebanon. The Majority in the Lebanese Government Should Be More Resolute, Rather Than Always Trying to Reach a Consensus

Following are excerpts from an interview with Lebanese Minister of Tourism Joe Sarkis, which aired on Noursat TV on August 11, 2006.

Joe Sarkis: We have seen that some of the countries in the region, and specifically Syria and Iran, are trying to impose their regional policies, and [to resolve] their issues and problems through the Lebanese arena. Lebanon can no longer tolerate being the arena for failed gambles, and for the adventures and wars of others on Lebanese soil. As we have seen, the Lebanese have fought and even got killed for the sake of others. This makes no sense. True, Israel is our enemy, but are Syria and Iran really fulfilling their duties of brotherhood and friendship towards Lebanon? I don't think this is what we have seen. This has become evident from the way the Syrian brothers have behaved for a whole year towards Lebanon, and today it is also evident that the Iranians are trying to resolve their problems with the international community, regarding the nuclear issues, through the conflict in Lebanon.

[...]

We cannot tolerate this destruction and ruin anymore. People are being killed, not knowing for what. Clearly, all that has happened does not serve Lebanon's interest.

[...]

I admit that the Lebanese government should have been more resolute. We have always tried to reach results through general agreement between the different parties in the government, but we were not successful, and this certainly does not speak well for the government.

Interviewer: But you are the majority, minister.

Joe Sarkis: That is true, but we have not exercised our majority as we should have, or as is acceptable among governments, with the majority overcoming the minority. Because of the composition of Lebanon, we have tried as much as we could to make decisions - especially decisions of such importance - by agreement and consensus. We were not successful, but I think this war has taught us many things.

[...]

I hope all of us in Lebanon are aware that this war has not brought any results. This war has shown that the only great loser is Lebanon. Eventually, the war will end, and things will go back on track, but there will be one loser - Lebanon. Therefore, I hope we have learned how not to repeat such incidents, which take us backwards. On the contrary, this time we insist on a final solution, so that these issues will not be reopened. This solution can only be achieved through a strong Lebanese state, and through a capable and efficient government, which would assume control over things, as it should, and implement the law with full courage and strength, which would guarantee that the country could go on.

Reservist Petition for Continuing War to Free Hostages
21:33 Aug 14, '06 / 20 Av 5766

(IsraelNN.com) Reserve soldiers are signing up comrades on a petition calling on the government to continue battling Hizbullah terrorist in Lebanon until Hizbullah releases two kidnapped IDF soldiers.

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said at the outset of the war that the release of the soldiers would be a condition of any cease fire. However, the United Nations Security Council resolution calls for the freedom without making it a requirement for the cease fire to take hold.

"We, reserve soldiers who were called up for emergency duty, view with severity the acceptance of the ceasefire agreement in its current format, as a result of the abandonment of the abducted soldiers," the petition reads. "We regret the fact that the fog of battle blurred the original war objectives we were enlisted for and the IDF values we were educated on. We are determined to complete the mission until the return of the abducted soldiers."

Itzik Ben Naim, one of the hundreds of soldiers who signed the petition, said he came to fight and to play. We won't leave two of our comrades inside (Lebanon.) We did not come to make fools of ourselves."

 Hizbullah Rockets Used In Gaza Attacks on Israel
22:16 Aug 14, '06 / 20 Av 5766

(IsraelNN.com) The two rockets fired on the port city of Ashkelon Monday were Russian-made Katyushas and similar to those used by Hizbullah terrorists, IDF spokesmen said. Previously, terrorists in Gaza have relied on homemade Kassam rockets.

Islamic Jihad terrorists claimed they fired the rockets, which injured one person lightly. The city is home to several strategic facilities, including a power plant and oil and gas pipelines.

Hizbullah Will Defend Lebanon
22:27 Aug 14, '06 / 20 Av 5766

(IsraelNN.com) Hizbullah terrorist leader Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised speech Monday night that the Lebanese army is not strong enough to defend the country. He spoke with Lebanese and Hizbullah flags in the background and asked rhetorically, "Who will defend Lebanon case of a new Israeli offensive?"

He added that Hizbullah will not disarm but will concentrate on helping Lebanese citizens rebuild their homes. The terrorist organization has established itself as a social and welfare benefactor to hundreds of thousands of residents in southern Lebanon, where it has ruled the area for two decades.

Addressing Lebanese citizens, he said, "You will not wait in any line or for government funds because this may take too long. We will come to you and grant you funds worth a year’s rent and for furniture. In the meantime we will rebuild your destroyed homes."

Beirut residents celebrated his speech with gunfire.
