Hezbollah - Stealing Ideas from the Jews

I saw the flag used by Hezbollah and it occurred to me that it looked as if it was inspired by the movie poster for the Otto Preminger film EXODUS. Very odd...that was a movie that portrayed the Jews creating the state of Israel in a very heroic light.

It turns out that the poster for EXODUS was created by Saul Bass. You take a look and tell me if you see the simularity:

If any of the original cast of Exodus are still alive, wouldn't it be interesting to get their opinion of this similarity?
You are definitely intelligent and beautiful.

Hang on. The Exodus poster doesn't feature a phallus like the Hezbo flag does.

That is one awesome find. The IDF should hijack Al Manar's airwaves again and broadcast it. Then the AP could watch bewildered, as Hezbollah runs around burning their own flags.

Oh, the very mental image that forms has me in tears laughing.

I guess the logical next step is for whoever has the rights for the movie and/or poster to contact a copyright lawyer.

Who knows, they might win some missles, or even a suicide bomber or two.

I thought the design of the Hezbollah looked familiar, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it.

Thanks. What an interesting discovery. It's hard to think that this is just a coincidence. Do you think Hezbollah is capable of irony?

I believe that Paul Newman, Eva Marie Saint and Jill Haworth are still alive. I would like to know what they think about Hezbollah.

I would like to see their flags used as burial shrouds for their guerillas. Hopefully, they'll need more....

I thought there was something about the design on that flag and that's it! Someone noticed that the Hezbo flag has a phallic symbol. Has anyone noticed on the Exodus poster, to the right of the arm holding up the rifle, it looks like someone holding up a middle finger? I guess the Hezbo flag is yellow because it represents the "religion of p1ss".

Any chance of a translation the script?

In all honesty they;'re both based on a simple concept, and the Hezbollah flag could have actually been thought up just as the Exodus logo was. But what I've always found odd is that the Hezbollah chose that design over something more accurate of their goals, like say a bleeding, dying Israeli child.

Hi, The Arabs steal everything from the Jews. They even stole the name Palestine. I noticed that Hizbollah ripped off the exodus symbol a while back after watching the movie and re-reading the book. Hizbollah also stole the Jewish shawl that the Iranians and the 1964 Plo also wear over their shirts.

Me again folks- check out internet haganah co.il/ and you will see how Hizbollah and hamas have web servers hosting in the USA. And yes, I repeat, the arabs steal everything from the Jews. also, if you study architecture, and the history of the middle east you will see how the moslems merely superimposed themselves over byzantine civilizatiion when they came to power, in other words the muslims never invented anything, they just stole from the byzantines. For example, the grand mozque in mecca is an exact copy of the Doge's heaquarters in Venice. James Just

I am not a jew nor a christian, but I think hezbollah is in real serious need of some original ideas. Hezbollah, please try harder and stop behaving like idiots and morons on the intenational arena. Please stop disgracing yourselves. You are not winning our sympathy but our irritation. We know you are liars, hypocrites, people with nothing better to do but to endanger others as well as your own woman and children. If you are real men, stop your nonsense. If you do not stop, you prove yourselves as dogs, pigs incapable of reasoning.

I agree

you're all overfed, propaganda-bloated farts

that is not a fallice for those of you too simple minded to see beyond the first layer of meaning of this flag.

What I see when I look at it I see "Hezbollah" script above and underneath and two symbols important to the resistance. A weapon and that globe-like thing (don't know what it is). Then I look down and see some hands reaching for some gun. Not even recent. Very different meanings, context, and implicationg. You people are dumb as fuck.

Well said, Lucius. Although I do feel a bit gassy, I am not so bloated as to believe that Hezbollah has conceived any original ideas.

As for the cowardly “Anonymous”, don’t you have a rebuilding project in Lebanon to tend to, or some photos to doctor or something?

So, has anyone stopped to think that saul bass may have gotten this idea from somewhere, and that it may not be 100% original?

Just look at WWI and WWII posters from around the world. There are a lot of raised guns.

Before this, raised muskets.

Before that, raised swords.

It's always been a sign of a movement, a revolution in some cases, but a strength in warfare symbol.

Saul Bass didn't invent the raised gun, neither did Hezbollah.
