Israel, Lebanon trade fire, accusations


www.cnn.com

Israeli and Lebanese forces traded fire Monday, with each blaming the other for the exchange.

No one was hurt.

Israel said its soldiers were fired upon while on routine patrol along Lebanon's border. The soldiers then returned fire, the military said.

Lebanon's national news agency said a southern Lebanese army post came under fire from Israeli forces, prompting Lebanese soldiers to fire back.

This may be nothing, but with Israel, who knows. But chances are it has to do with energy reserves. As one of the articles I linked to opens up,

"Shebaa Farms is that small patch of Lebanon to which Israel clung when it withdrew from its northern neighbour in 2000. The 14 farms comprise little more than 2,000 hectares and may be worth a few million dollars. As insignificant as the Shebaa area is, it is the reason Hizbollah gave for maintaining its military wing after all the other Lebanese wartime militias had disarmed. It was the ostensible casus belli for the Israeli-Hizbollah war of the last 11 years, including Israel's abortive invasion of 2006. Although Shebaa's strategic, economic and historical value is almost nil, Lebanon and Israel have been locked in a state of permanent tension over it.

If the two sides prolong war over some wheat fields, imagine what they would do for fields of gas and oil worth billions of dollars."

We'll see if these things are linked, but look how much money we've spent going to war for resources, to think other nations would not is foolish.

Whats new?

You throw a rock at Israel and they shoot live rounds into the crowd..

Judge, Jury and Executioner..



Two Palestinians have been shot dead by Israeli soldiers in the Qalandiya refugee camp in the West Bank, Palestinian medics and security officials said on Monday.

The dead men, Mortesen Adwan, 23, and 22-year-old Ali Halifa, were killed by soldiers making arrests in the camp on the road from Ramallah to Jerusalem on Sunday night.

Witnesses said they opened fire after Palestinians threw stones at them.

True, but this was a soldier-on-soldier exchange of gunfire.

As one of the posters on the link has pointed out it is most likely an attempt by the Zionists to distract the population of Israel away from the recent street protests.

Israel was built on fear and they have to inject a bit of fear every now and then to get the ordinary Jews to stfu, stop whining and go back to making bagels. And of course they will need to step up the concern factor so that funds from USA keep flowing, which must be a bit of a worry now that the US is looking for $3 trillion in cuts over the next 10 years.

So I predict an uprise in incidents like this, all of which will be blamed on those evil muslims.

Business as usual.

I wondered about the Israeli protests. But you don't see an escalation of violence between Israel and Lebanon of resources coming down the road? Maybe not from this incident, but in the near future?

I think the issues with Lebanon might be coming from the end of the Harari probe by the UN. Couple that with the massive issues inside Syria, the recent rockets launched from gaza into Israel, where the Hamas spokesperson has stated they are going to target israeli children because palestinian children were killed when Israel responded to the rocket attack (Hamas used them as human shields).


The propoganda on both sides will continue as it always has, until some other pissing contest can be devloped for them to fight about.

So you don't think it has anything to do with Israel wanting to steal more resources outside of their true borders??

Ironic I brought this topic up, but there is very little discussion on the the very real fact that war could be very imminent between these two nations.

This area could be our modern-day powder keg. Israel and Lebanon go at it, Iran gets involved, the US gets involved, the potential escalation is graver than people think.

Will the flashpoint be off-shore oil and gas reserves or something else?
