Ha’aretz reports

At least 50 Lebanese citizens were killed, 23 of them children, in the IAF strike on a building early Sunday. Dozens of others were reportedly trapped in the rubble. Several houses collapsed and a three-story building where about 100 civilians were sheltering was destroyed, witnesses and rescue workers said.

In 1996 the accidental bombing of a UN camp in Kfar Qana brought the end of the “grapes of wrath” operation, and subsequently contributed to the falling of the Peres government. 105 civilians were killed.
In 1982 the Sabra and Shatila massecre, commited by pro-Israeli Lebanese melitia, brought the end of the war, and subsequently the fall of the Begin & Sharon goverment. 400 civilians were killed.

No, I do not believe that in any of these cases Israel deliberately sought these results. But damn it, this is war. What did you expect? If you conduct war in a populated area, this is what eventually happens. You don’t need too much brains to figure this one out.

So now the Israeli peace camp will get out of its coma, people will take to the streets (some already have), the war will stop and some sort of agreament will be negotiated. The parameters of this agreament have been known for over a week. And all will go back to ‘normal’.

So why, why, did it have to come to this?

What now? Simple. Ulmert and Peretz are responsible. Ulmert and Peretz must go. If we Israelis want the world to know that this was not done in our name, that’s the only way to go.
