How true, we sold out to the powerful Lobby they have in Washington a long time ago. They attacked a US ship and killed US soldiers and what did we do? Threaten our surviving soldiers and pretended like nothing ever happened. Despicable.
Putin Suspects Israel of Pursuing “Wider Goals” in Lebanon Attack
President Vladimir Putin said he thinks Israel is pursuing wider goals in its military campaign against Lebanon than the return of its two captured soldiers, the Associated Press news agency reports.
“However, it is our impression that aside from seeking to return the abducted soldiers, Israel is pursuing wider goals,” he said at a midnight news conference after a dinner opening the summit of the Group of Eight industrialized nations. He did not elaborate.
U.S., Europe urge Israel to show restraint
President Bush and European allies on Sunday urged Israel to show restraint after four days of steady bombing against its neighbor Lebanon, as the world leaders' summit was overshadowed by turmoil in the Middle East.
"Our message to Israel is, look, defend yourself," Bush said. "But as you do so, be mindful of the consequences. So we've urged restraint."

The truth is that Lebanon is one of the last countries to be controlled by a central banking system, as afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, North Korea.
According to Simon Schama's book, "Two Rothschilds and the Land of Israel", the House of Rothschild had acquired 80% of the land of Israel. They also paid the expenses of the early settlers, manipulated into being the 1917 Balfour Declaration which recognized Israel as a Jewish homeland, funded the Nazis and created Mossad and the terrorist underground in Palestine.
Israel was founded by, and has always been controlled by, the Rothschilds and the rest of the Elite. The "Jewish homeland" scam is just a smokescreen and Jewish people are pawns in the game.
The Anti-Defamation League is a Mossad (Rothschild) front in the United States and further afield. ... It involved from an organisation set up before the First World War to brand as "anti-Semitic" the New York police commissioner who was determined to destroy the mobsters.
...And the Truth Shall Set You Free
Israel is not a home for Jewish people.
Israel is a base for the terrorists who created and control that state to operate, on behalf of the House of Rothschild and the Elite, a global terror and manipulation network.
That is why it was created after the war and the influence of its intelligence arm, Mossad, is so vast for such a tiny country because Mossad is really the intelligence agency of the Rothschild-Rockefeller-Global Elite, while genuine Jewish people who live in Israel (the vast, vast majority) are used as an innocent front, a smokescreen, for this.

Harper has not questioned Israels actions because Israel is in the RIGHT here. It is about time that they launch an "all out" attack on Hezbollah and discarm them by whatever means necessary. I do feel for the Canadians that were killed. Be assured that in no way, shape or form did Israel intend to kill Canadians nor any other innocent. The Israelis are a good people!
Please remember that this is WAR.. War is ugly, viscious, violent. Good, innocent men, women and children die due to wars and it is TRAGIC!! No doubt. However, Hezbollah struck first! What would the Canadians do if a terrorist (government) organisation came across their border and killed 8 soldiers, captured 3 and started firing rockets at you??? I'll tell you.... They would call the USA!!!
Also be assured, the USA is going to evacuate any and all Canadians that want to leave. We are your best friends. We are your defenders. We are your brothers and sisters. Don't lose sight of that!

Israel started this?.... You have got to be kidding.
When you colonize other people's land and kick them out at gunpoint, they're going to hate you for it, whether your ancestors lived there 2,000 years ago or not.
Welcome to reality...

No-one is saying that Israel doesn't have the right to defend itself and strike back at legitimate military targets. Its intentional targeting of civilian men, women, and children and civilian infrasturcture is what people are protesting.
Israel always engages in excessive retaliation. Israel's methods have brought the hatred of the Arab and Muslim World upon itself and is bringing the contempt of many who used to be supportive. Israel conducts itself like an uncivilized rogue toward its neighbors and continually and deliberately foments their animosity toward it.
Israel has always operated as an oppressor of Palestinians. What does it expect them and their supporters to do? Say "thank you, we liked that", turn and bend over again, and again, and again, and again? You reap what you sow. The current mess is but the crop of the seed that Israel and the US and Anglo Saxon West have planted in the Middle East.
No-one here condones the bad conduct of Hamas and Hezbollah. We are saying that their bad conduct doesn't give Israel's regime of lunatics a license to commit crimes against its neighbors.
On the other hand, Israel's current campaign may have little to do to with exacting revenge for the kidnapping of a couple of soldiers. If that's what it was about, it would prove Israel's leaders to be a gaggle of lunatics indeed.
This campaign is a diversion of the World's attention from other areas and may be setting the stage for something that we are not expecting.
