Chalk this one up to Twilight Zone-type thinking. Israeli general, Benny Gantz, is quoted in the NY Times answering this question:
When asked what the Israeli military had achieved after two weeks of fighting, General Gantz replied: “I would suggest asking what Hezbollah has achieved. They came as defenders of Lebanon but basically have destroyed the country.”
Yet another example of the clouded thinking of Israel’s military establishment. ISRAEL destroyed Lebanon. Hezbollah only gave them excuse to do it. If Hezbollah deserves an ounce of blame, Israel deserves a pound–or ten.
Right…just poor little arabs fighting the big bad Israelis…..Pahlessze! Israel fights back….they do not hide in mosques, nor behind the skirts of their women hostages. If Bush had half this General’s Cahonis the savages would long ago have been destroyed

It takes a savage to know a savage. Thanks for the hate. It discredits you more than you could ever discredit those you hate.
Whole fuckin’ thing’s about property.
