Isn't it terrorism?

As the situation escalates dramatically, only one scene catches my eyes: a scene of death and destruction. I am not being romantic here, I just got questions in my mind that are left without answers. Why do those who die either in Israel or in Lebanon every day have to pay for something they have nothing to do with.

I wonder if the Hizbullah foolish act is really worth of all the Lebanese deaths?? I wonder if the Israeli overreaction is the correct reply to the kidnapping of the two soldiers?... How many Israelis have died already for those two soldiers? How many Lebanese innocent civilians died for a foolish act they have nothing to do with???

If the collapsing lady, or the destroyed city, or the homeless children and the dead bodies are really so cheap to be the prices of the Hizbullah and Israeli foolish acts, can anyone find any difference between terrorism and the current situation on both sides?

A question that really needs an answer...

Good to see you back at blogging again =)

IMHO, the acts of the Zionist regime blurs the lines between it and the terrorists. In fact, what they're doing makes them no better than terrorists, does it..

Ditto what The Sphinx said. Good to see you back, Jimmy.

Sphinx: Please. Your post reads like a bad Saturday Night Live skit. For you, the fact that they are Jews supercedes all other facts and makes their actions unacceptable.

You can not be intellectually honest with yourself and say that the Israelis had no right to attack those who: a. fired rockets into their territory - killing civilians, b. Crossed their border and attacked their Army and c. Captured two of their soldiers.

And please do not blather on about the crimes of the Zionist entity, yada yada yada. Israel left Lebanon years ago - thereby keeping their side of the bargain. The fact that the Lebanese governemtn was either unable or unwilling to disarm Hizb - as they were required to do under the UN resolution on which the Israelis conducted their withdrawl - is not Israel's fault - even though they are the criminal Zionist entity.

Let us agree that we hope this conflict comes to an end quickly and that the Lebanese people can once again have a true soverign state.

Salam.

That is simply and entirely not true.

No, but I can say that they have NO right to do _tenfold_ damage to WRONG cities, killing civilians, women, children, razing houses and slowly but systematically destroy the infrastructure of a country that is mainly opposed to Hezbollah. Israel had the grand chance of disarming Hezbollah correctly without doing the damage to the rest of Lebanon (WHY did they bomb the North? The Christian and Sunni North with zero Hezbollah presence?!), and they would've gone down as heroes in Lebanon because they got rid of that group. But no, they blew that chance, and now the whole of Lebanon has to fight against them. Perfect. Plus you have to look at the stuff that happened before this whole Hezbollah incident took place:

Israel shells a beach, killing 8 people => Israeli soldier is captured in Gaza => Gaza is overrun by Israeli forces that wreck havoc => 2 Israeli soldiers are kidnapped on the Lebanese border and 8 others killed => .. We know the rest.

"Let us agree that we hope this conflict comes to an end quickly and that the Lebanese people can once again have a true soverign state."

Yes, hopefully.
Salam

The situation over there is tragic for everyone. Can the arabs ever embrace peace and acknowledge Israel?
