How frenchly sophisticated ..I am such a no gray scale dullard

Remember the story of the bief standoff between the French and Israeli tankers?

Here's one reality ...It's Debka ..

The south Lebanese village of Merwahin was the stage Thursday, Sept 28 of the first near-showdown between UN and Israeli forces. DEBKAfile publishes here the first photo of an encounter between 4 French Leclerc and at least 5 Israeli Merkava tanks in that Lebanese village.

Despite the photographic evidence, Israel officially denies the incident. DEBKAfile reports the French force sought to prevent the Israeli unit from combing through the Hizballah-dominated village in search of the raiders who crossed into Israel and broke into the IDF’s Kibbutz Shomera arms store last week. They made off with a large quantity of side-arms, anti-tank weapons, LAU rockets and hundreds of combat grenades, which the Israeli force was determined to recover.

American and German correspondents who witnessed the incident report that the two tank units held menacing positions 50 meters apart for about half an hour, after which the French tanks broke off contact and turned tail.

C'est IMPOSSIBLE! Ratrait, pour les francais ? IMPOSSIBLE !

The French commander claims the Israel tanks retreated first. DEBKAfile’s military sources note that this was the second incidence of French backing for Hizballah. On Sept 22, French fighter jets were seen cruising in Beirut’s skies above the podium of Hassan Nasrallah’s “victory speech.” He boasted then that he was not afraid to address the masses directly instead of through armored glass.

Imagine, the French protecting hizballah killers who had just done some weapons thieving, inside Israel ...it's just too hard to believe, non, mes amis?

You r on drug man . The picture you posted depict another incident that occured the same day, when an IDF armored vehicule try to enter lebanon, and was prevented to do so by a UNIFIL french tank . As for the story with the merkavas, most news state that the french tank handed their position to UNIFIL observers after having kept the IDF tanks in sight for 1/2 hour . Now this fighter jet story sounds like a piece of crap to me . Lots of journalists covered Nasrallah’s speech and not a single one reported this event !!! Fighter jet that are within range of lebanon are english ones, in cyprus . What the f... are you talking about ?!

I don't see any merkava tank in this picture. I think the one on the background is either an upgraded m113 with a turret or a d9 armored bulldozer.
