I can't stress enough the difference between the way Hezbullah (and Lebanon) acts, and the way that the IDF (and Israel) does.
I mean, let's consider this:
These people are obviously upset over the dead. That's understandable, though the press still doesn't give us any clues as to whether the bodies being bandied about here are really innocent civilians, or whether they're Hezbullah combatants.
Now, compare it with this:
Let me just say once again that the biggest
difference between Israel and Lebanon in this conflict is that Israel, in a defensive manner, helps its citizens move away from the falling Katyusha rockets, in order to help prevent casualties.
Lebanon, on the other hand, has shown a gross
negligence towards its citizens, presumably at the suggestion of Hezbullah, which has shown a mastery at manipulating the press which can hardly be surpassed. Dead civilians, according to Hezbullah, make for better press, so every effort is made to ensure that military operations are performed from within civilian areas.
I think that difference alone illustrates who is behaving honorably in this conflict. What do you think?
