    Question Israeli jets buzz German warship AGAIN, firing over it

    For the second time in less than a week, Germany reported that Israel Air Force aircraft confronted a German Navy vessel off the coast of Lebanon. The German Defense Ministry said Israeli F-16 fighter-jets buzzed the Alster and fired over the intelligence-gathering vessel. No casualties were reported, Middle East Newsline reported.
    In an additional incident, an official said on Oct. 29 that Israeli warplanes sought to intimidate a German Navy helicopter. He said the helicopter flew in an area reserved for Israeli air training. He said the Defense Ministry plans to discuss the issue with Israel.

    Berlin said Israeli warplanes have been intimidating German air and naval patrols involved in the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon mission. UNIFIL has sought to enforce a ceasefire that began on Aug. 14 and ended the 34-day Israel-Hizbullah war.

    "There were certain incidents, which we have discussed with Israel in the appropriate form," German Defense Minister Franz Josef Jung said on Monday. "Conclusions have been drawn from this for the future. I view the case as closed."

    Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Defense Minister Amir Peretz relayed assurances that Israeli warplanes would not hamper UNIFIL operations. The two men urged UNIFIL to coordinate missions with Israel.

    "The prime minister explained to a German parliamentary delegation the nature of what happened and apologized for the misunderstandings which arose last week," Olmert's office said in a statement on Oct. 29. "For Israel the deployment of a German force which is to play a key role in the implementation of UN resolutions on Lebanon is of utmost importance."

    Jung was scheduled to visit Israel and Lebanon on Nov. 3. The meetings in Israel were meant to coordinate German military operations in the Mediterranean.

    "I don't expect any repeat of such an incident," Jung said.

    Officials said the latest encounter took place on Oct. 27. They said the Alster was operating in international waters about 50 kilometers off the coast of Lebanon.

    "We are aware of the episode, but it was not menacing," a German Defense Ministry spokesman said.

    On Oct. 24, Israeli F-16 jets confronted a German Navy helicopter and warship off the coast of Lebanon. The Israeli military said no shots were fired.

    "This is exactly the sort of incident which I have always said would happen and which the government said was impossible," Guido Westerwelle, head of Germany's opposition Liberals Party, said.

    [On Monday, the UN has acknowledged that Hizbullah operatives in Lebanon continue to receive weapons smuggled from neighboring Syria. Diplomats said the Lebanese government has withheld details of the weapons smuggling because of Hizbullah's presence in the Cabinet.]

    "Perhaps other standards apply for them than for us," a German official said.

    The German media have also reported navy difficulties with Lebanon. They asserted that German navy vessels required permission from the Beirut government to enter a 10-kilometer zone off the coast.

    "They are there to preserve the truce and Lebanon's sovereignty," German Chancellor Angela Merkel told the Al Mustabal weekly. "[If] the German [Navy] can't do its job, then there will be renewed discussions over their tasks."

    France's contingent to UNIFIL has introduced anti-aircraft batteries in southern Lebanon. Commanders have warned that the batteries could be used against intruding Israeli aircraft. Italy, Portugal, Spain and Turkey have also been operating in southern Lebanon as part of the UN force.

    The French contingent replacing a force from Ghana has been patrolling the Israeli-Lebanese border since September 2006. The French force has been equipped with Leclerc main battle tanks and AMX-10 light tanks.

    omgomg, do you guys ever watch Bruno on Da Ali G show? He interviewed some (I'm assuming republican) politician from Alabama, and Bruno is a gay Austrian reporter (made up by Sacha Baron Cohen of course) and my goodness, funny yet at the same time very disheartening.

    But as always me = desperately in love with SBC!

    Just disheartening in that it showcases the extreme prejudice held by many people towards homosexuals still.

    I love Ali G!!!!! "It's cos I is black, innit?"
