The Association for Civil Rights in Israel Tuesday urged Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to establish a state commission of inquiry into the killing of dozens of civilians in an Israeli air strike in the village of Qana in southern Lebanon.
It now appears that the military had no information on rockets launched from the site of the building, or the presence there of Hezbollah men at the time.
The IDF had said after the deadly air-strike that many rockets had eben launched from Qana. However, it changed its version on Monday.
The site was included in an IAF plan to strike at several buildings in proximity to a previous launching site. Similar strikes were practiced in the past. But there were no rocket launches from Qana on the day of the strike.
So, it seems that flatening the general area from which rockets have been fired is SOP. I suppose its a projection of the common procedure in the west bank and Gaza. Maybe about time someone asked some questions here?
I am feeling for you, dear Lebanese neighbors, since I know exactly what you are going threw..Beacuse I’m going threw the same, here and now, in Israel, just like you do.
I am not a politician, and this is the first time for me to write to you. I would like to tell you that I was a student until not long ago, lucky to study in France on a student exchange program..meeting there many Lebanese who became to be my best friends over there.. and I guess I know why..Beacuse we had more in common then with any other nationality..having same Falafel (still urging where is there origin whether in Israel or Lebanon) eating same Labaneh and thinking in the same way about many things and issues..
So, for Shahar and others, here’s a recipe for Mejaderah. A favourite among Lebanese, Palestinians and Israelis. May we share food and not sorrows.
The more common recipe uses rice. Bulgur can be substituted for rice, with the exact same procedure.

And by the way, I think the Speak Out team would like to recieve more Israeli contributions.
