Also notice how world media covers every injury received in lebanon and gaza, down to the splinter level. Where is the equal coverage of the victims of the over 1,000 rockets fired at Israeli civilians?????

There were odd moments, even in Beirut. For the first time, the mainly Christian neighborhood of Ashrafieh was hit by four missiles targeting a pair of trucks in a dusty parking lot deep tucked inside a well-to-do residential neighborhood.
The attack took place around midmorning and shook residents — typically French- or English-speaking middle-to-upper-class people — who flocked to their balconies or on the streets to inquire about what happened. The missiles were aimed at a pair of trucks carrying water-bore drilling equipment. The trucks had their long drills mounted on their backs and might have been mistaken for missile launchers. They had been parked in the same spot for the past month.

The point im trying to make is, yes isreal may be under attack from rockets, but they do absolutely nothing compared to what the IDF are doing to lebanon. I feel sorry for all civilians, but since lebenon does have, and will have more innocents die, my heart does go out to lebenon first. When a rocket attack happens in Haifa, the ambulence can acturly get to the scene, while in lebanon most of the vital infastucture is destroyed, preventing the saving of civililan lives. Now hezzbolla we know are firing rockets randomly into israel, they have no intended target. Yet the IDF are surpose to be pinpoint in their actions, since they have one of the best air forces in the world, yet more civilians have died, and they have targeted school (yes its school holidays so no children were there) but still after the end of this war where will the children go to school? Now u can say all you want that hezzbolla was inside the school etc. But still it doesnt man u airstrike it, soft civilian targets like that should of been left untill last, and taking by ground forces rather than just blowing it all up.

Israel gets my praise. They have done an excellent job against the terrorists of Hezbollah. As an American I can say that I am glad we have them as an ally.

How many more terrorists will be initiated using these tactics?
THAT is the big question.
If only one person from every family who will suffer losses decides to fight back then we have a problem.An inexhaustable supply of fresh recruits

The terrorist motivation is there because terrorists are fed lies and hate from the moment they are born.
Hamas's charter refers to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion as historical fact when in reality it is an anti-Jewish fraud - But their people demonize the Jews so the hate is there whether Israel acts or not.
Iran preaches the Holocaust Hoax theory which is oviously a lie (I know too many holocaust survivors who lost their entire family for this to be true) and poisons the mind of its people so here again the hate is there whether Israel acts or not.
So the hate is there.
What also flames the war is Fundamentalism in Islam which condones killing Jews on the political issue of the existance of Israel as a Jewish country.

Even though 300 of them had nothing to do with your soldiers that were taken and no proof that they even supported Hizbollah.
Hey anyway it was fun reading the hypocrisies. If it makes you feel just slightly better or more in the right, then more power to ya.

I do not salute israel for their tactics, i will not salute anyone who search for destruction. The only way i would salute israel is when this is all over, that they rebuild lebanon, as good or even better than they have built their own citites.
