Hezbollah succeeds in killing … Lebanese

with 12 comments

Reports of Hezbollah killing 18 suspected “spies” in Tyre. Also, reports of Hezbollah trying to force Druze villagers to harbor their rocket launchers.

Reminds me of Ahmad (Machmoud? sorry, can’t remember) Tabak in Nablus, first intifada. His men killed more suspected ‘collborators’ then the Israeli army ever did. Most of them were people who did not pay his protection fees.

Terrorist organizations terrorise. That’s what they’re good at.

Observation

Israel is doing its best to avoid civilian casualties.

Hezbollah is doing its best to inflict civilian casualties.

Both sides don’t seem to be doing very well.

Time to try something new, perhaps?

haaretz sidebar Pictures of suffering in Lebanon and Gaza dominate the site of Ha’aretz, Israel’s liberal paper.

Ynet, the site of Yediuot Acharonot – the large mainstream paper – reports on anti-war demonstrations across the country.

Both report about Amir Fester’s refusal.

Israel confirms that it has agreed to a 48 hour halt of aerial attacks.

The almost unbearable thought keeps creeping in: 10 killed each day for 10 days will not have the impact of 60 killed in one bombing. Why, why did it have to come to this?

By the way, if anyone needs proof that this was not intentional: such a backlash is what you would expect. If the army wants to continue the offensive, this is the last thing it wants to see.
