Wow now isn't that a surprise. Maybe Halutz didn't take into account that Lebanon happens to be Israels neighbor and that WATER ACTUALLY FLOWS? Did they think the pollution they released on over 10 miles of beach would stay just in Lebanon? Its oil ya dummy! Or maybe since Gaza happens to be on the coast of Israel that maybe the contamination might possibly be coming from there? People think this Military is responsible enough to be in possesion of Nukes? LOL Will they drop a nuke on Gaza and then wonder why Fallout was dropping on Tel-Aviv?? Maybe they will blame it on Iran LOL. Next thing you know they will be wondering why mysterious amounts of human feces are also landing on their beaches maybe from the raw sewage being dumped directly into the sea due to destroying Palestinian Infrastructure.

Oily substance of unknown source contaminating beaches in south

By Tzafrir Rinat

A wide stretch of the southern beaches of Israel has been contaminated in the last few days by an oily substance of an unknown source.

The contamination began several days ago and extends from the Zikim area to the Ashdod area.

A number of bathers in the area say that the substance has a foul odor and a few of them have even reported a burning sensation following contact with the substance.


I always get a big kick from the feedbacks left by readers on that site. Some of them actually add to the articles.Some just plain funny.

Well my money is on an oil spill, I wounder if it has any thing to do with the winds changing direction.

Crisis talks on Lebanon oil spill

Oil spilled into the sea following Israel's bombing of a power station.
The slick now covers 170km (105 miles) of Lebanon's coastline and is spreading out to sea.

Oil Spill at the Lebanese Coast

In the course of the conflict in the Middle East, the oil-fuelled power plant of Jieh, located directly on the coastline approximately 30 km south of Beirut was hit by bombs on July 13 and 15, 2006.

Due to south-westerly winds and the sea currents, the oil spill was partly carried out to sea and partly dispersed along the coast of Lebanon. Until the beginning of August, 2006 the Lebanese coastline has been affected from the Damour region south of Beirut to the Syrian border in the North.

Pieman, I know what you mean by the replies on that site, hey make me laugh everytime.

Guess it doesnt make sense to bomb a oil powered plant right next to the coast eh?

Might have been smarter to bomb to lines feeding out of the plant instead of the plant it's self.. though that would cost less to repair.
