My apologies for ignoring it, wasn't intended to do so. It's not justifiable to target each and every car with the intention to precautionary take
out Hezbollah militant. In this case it's not about whether Israel allows you to travel by car or not, it's about the mere fact Israel brutally
bombs away every car trying to escape the escalation. Did the US army do the same in Iraq? Did they bomb away each and everyone traveling around
during the invasion? No, you are right, they didn't.
and as i mentioned, i am not disagreeing that bombing every car in the area is wrong. but that wasnt the point. the point is that israel warned
everyone in the area that that was exactly what they intended to do, and the warnings went unheeded.
Really? What about the elderly and invalid people.
you have a point with the ederly and infirm. however, the liberal media continuously spouts garbage about hizbollah's social programs....ask
yourself why they havent bothered to help get those people out of the area. personally, i think it's because by keeping them there they increase the
collateral damage from israel's bombs.
Pretty easy to say from the side line ''If I was in that position''. You are not.
neither are you, so how can you say that i am wrong....we could keep going around and around with that argument.
Besides, most of the people in such villages don’t even have internet. Most have television yes. But no one not even you, could have expected
Israeli would react in such a disproportional way on the abduction of the two soldiers.
again, they covered the area with leaflets, called houses, and transmitted warning via radio and television. there is absolutely no way that the
lebanese in that are had no idea what was coming. as for the overused phrase "disproportionate use of force", this conflict with hizbollah has
been coming for quite a long time. i personally think that israel waited too long to react to the lebanese governments inability to control hizbollah
as per the agreement in which israel left lebanon in the first place. but that's just MHO.
Watch the news very carefully. Israel targets almost every square centimeter of soil, from south to north. Yesterday farmers were killed due to an
Israeli airstrike in the upper north.
i have been watching and the majority of attacks have been in the hizbollah strongholds south of the litani river.
Just because Al Jazeera is an Arab broadcasting company it’s biased?
no, because it is just as one-sided as world nut daily.
Or are they biased since they actually show the terribly burned bodies of Lebanese people Western sources don’t show?
how about the terribly burned and maimed bodies of israelis? dont see that on al-jazeera. think about this: if the situation were reversed and it
was israel getting its ass kicked, there would not be a single call for ceasefire from any press or country in the middle east, and probably most of
europe. that is one-sided.
I find it rather a weak excuse as the report even includes a picture of the black charred bodies, that’s not biased reporting, that’s reality.
Reality caused by our human loving Israelis, which seems to prefer to worsen the scars and traumas rather than stop it as soon as possible.
and again, where is al-jazeera's human interest story of israeli civilians being killed and maimed by hizbollah rockets? that's called bias.
