More Lebanese blogs, more Israeli comments
Code Vault asks some hard questions:
The Lebanese front was unjustly started and Lebanon is being used by Syria and Iran for their own agendas. How come the Golan heights are still occupied with a Syrian law that anybody resisting there will be executed while Hizbollah says that it is fighting for the Arab cause from within Lebanon?
If we really were fighting to free Jerusalem and give the Palestinians their land back, how come the armed Palestinian factions did not join the fight with Hizbollah. We have been trying to disarm these groups for a long time as they represent a real threat to our sovereignty and security.
My feelings about all of this? We are going to pay for a fight that we did not want and cannot handle that is being imposed on us by a side that gets manipulated by others. Clear enough?
Yet explains that as long as the fighting continues, no Lebanese will speak against Hezbollah. I can understand that, but would hope otherwise. And so do many Israeli commenters on his blog.
Yes, sometimes it is a crazy world and we live in an almost a surrealistic reality. I am an israeli woman. leaving in north of Israel. Just wand to say that i can feel and see your suffering. I don’t have any suggestion to give. I don’t even want to spread here the history of the Israeli nation or to talk about politics or justifications. We have to cope with and to face- from both sides – a very hard and complex reality that is not totaly in our control. There are so many questions and so few answers right now. I sometimes feel that there are forces that are so strong, fanatic and total in ther belifes, that they are totaly blind to human suffering all togather. I just want to offer you my human sympathy. I do not belive in hatred. I strongly belive that people can live without violence. I educete my own children according those belifes .I teach tham love and sympathy for all humankind. unfortunately , the reality dose not match this personal philosophy. I hope for you and for me and my children that this sad and ceotic situation will and as soon as possible .
Take care and God bless you.
North of Israel
I’ve been reading many Lebanese blogs. Much more than is good for my work, but then – I already admited I can’t really get any work done. I read them because I am want to know what is going on in Lebanon, what people are feeling, and frankly – I don’t trust the media.
And everywhere I go there are Israeli comments. Arguing, explaining, sympathising, provoking, apologizing. Now, I know we’re a vocal nation, but still – why are Israelis – some of them in shelters – so keen on reading and answering Lebanese bloggers?
And more then that, I wonder – what does a Lebanese feel when he sees 20 Israeli comments on his blog?
