Spelled With a G?

Imad Mugniyah no longer walks this earth. So already its a better place. For those unfamiliar with his name he is the terrorist extraordinare of Hezbollah. Nasrallah is really just a pretty face compared to this guy. Imad was the commander of Hezbollah's military wing. With roughly 1000 deaths directly connected to him you could say he had a flair for evil and thats why he rose to the top so quickly. He was only 45 when he got kicked out of this world.

A lot of speculation as to who was responsible. The first name on every terrorists lips was Israel. Maybe so. The other was the United States. That would be cool too. A little revenge for the murder of 230 Marines in Beirut that our buddy was responsible for. In my opinion its all good. Of course there will be a price. I would have a guess what it is but I don't want to give them any ideas. Anyway there has been tons of analysis on this issue. We may not know for sure who did it but we know who Hezbollah will make pay for it. Its only a question of how. So lets stay on our toes people.

For me there are two issues that intrigue me. They stuck a G in his last name. Its not pronounced so how the heck did it get there? Does the G give it the correct pronunciation which is mooniyah as opposed to mun which rhymes with sun. To further confuse things his first name pronounced Eemad is spelled with an I yet his name is not pronounced EYEmad. Although as I roll it around its not really Eemad. Its a shorter e sound. The complexities of transliteration are beyond me.

I leave you with this thought. If they could get to Mugniyah in Damascus they can get to pretty boy Nasrallah in Beirut. Sweet dreams Hassan.

I don't care who sent this...to his 'just' rewards but why did it take so long? When you are responsible for the death of 230 US Marines, the world must know that you can't get away with it.

Please continue to concentrate on Israeli news. You are right. It is very hard to get a clear impression of Israel outside of Israel. YNet helps but it is not enough. This morning National Pubic Radio did 15 seconds on the demonstration along the Gaza border. I had to go to YNet to get the details.

Enjoyed last week's podcast.
