Default Qana

After what happened in Qana, Israelis generals should think two times before travelling to Europe. War crime is a serious offense.

This incident, two days after the arrival of US "smart bombs", may cost lifes of american citzens around the world.

Scenes like this is what terrorists are looking for to re-seed their evil.

It isn't necessarily a war crime, it is a quite complex judgment to make, but IMO it probably isn't based on the currently available information.

That being said, it will probably be perceived as one though, so the effect may be similar to if they had killed a lot of children intentionally.

As a Lebanese American, I am completely sickened by Israel. Just sickened. Destorying an entire country because of 2 soldiers. They act like Lebanon is Nazi Germany or Soviet Union. Ban me if you want. [censored] Israel and their terrorism against the Lebanese. I hope the entire Arab world fights back against these digsuting terrorists.

You just repeatedly refuse to acknowledge that 8 soldiers were also killed in the intial invasion by Hezbollah. This wasn't just a kidnapping, Hezbollah committed an act of war against Israel, and Israel has responded accordingly.

As Israel has so many times before, Hezballah raiders crossed the northern border on July 12. They attacked a patrol. Five of the eight Israeli soldiers killed, however, were killed inside Lebanon: 4 in the tank that crossed the border and ran over a landmine and one who tried to retrieve bodies. In short, this was a border skirmish limited to military targets. Israel reacted by a massive bombing campaign against infrastructure and civilian targets all over Lebanon, in gross violation of international law. It therefore did not "respond[] accordingly."

It's a telling case of hypocrisy that when two Israeli soldiers are kidnapped its an act of terror and war meriting a savage response, according to most U.S. officials and pundits, even against the indisputably innocent. But when Israel kidnaps Palestinian civlians (over 2,000 are held by Israel now, without charge), even children, these same people conclude that no act of retalliation or reprisal can be justified. The mainstream consensus is that it's an inconvenience the Palestinians should have to live with; part of the price of being Arabs.

Peace for Lebanon will no longer come at the expense of peace for Israel.

derosnec, do you truly believe that this is about 2 soldiers?

If you do and you have any connections over there, maybe you can make a few phone calls, and get the soldiers shipped back to Israel?

That is after all, what the gov't of Lebanon would do, IF it was interested in ending the conflict... don't you think!

ps... this discussion should probably go back into the main thread...

Technically it does, since Hezbollah is a part of the gov't.

But if you would like to think that it doesn't... the question would be... Why not???... what exactly has the Lebanese gov't been doing for the last few weeks to resolve this? (aside from providing logistic support and political cover to HZB)

I'll go even further... what exactly has the Lebanese gov't been doing to help its civilians in Southern Lebanon?

I take it none of you people saw the videos of missiles being shot out of that building in Qana. Seriously people, its almost like this was planned to trap the Israelis.
