Historic Victory?

According to the Associated Press today,

"BEIRUT, Lebanon - Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said Monday that his guerrillas achieved a "strategic, historic victory" against Israel _ a declaration that prompted celebratory gunfire across the Lebanese capital."

Historic? Yes. This smells very much like the Treaty of Hudaybiyya (say that three times fast).

In 628, Muhammad began attempting to acheive his vision of a pilgrimage to Mecca. He had previously been unable to make the trip because of Quraysh control of the land, but this time he took along 1500 men and gave it a go. When he got there, he was met by the Quraysh and held back. The Quraysh proposed a treaty that would allow Muhammad and his followers to make the pilgrimage the next year, but the conditions were quite disadventageous to the Muslims. To his followers suprize, Muhammad agreed to the treaty and told his men that they had been victorious - even promising them that "Allah was well pleased with the believers..." and that "Allah promiseth you much booty that ye will capture, and hath given you this in advance, and hath withheld men's hands from you..." Qur'an 48:1.

Here's the stinky part...

Very shortly thereafter, Muhammad broke the treaty - reinforcing the Muslim principle that nothing is good except that which is advantageous to Islam and that deceitfulness is fully acceptable during times of war (when is it NOT a time of war to the Muslims?).

Wait for it....this treaty is a joke.

To Lebanon: Arrest the terrorists who are acting as part of your government and take control of your country. You're well aware that they are regrouping and will put you at even greater risk than they already have if they are left alone. Prime Minister Mikati...this is on you.
