Well the above statement is not entirely accurate. Citizens of Israel possess high standards of living, but that is not an incentive for Israel to stop its terrorist activities in Lebanon.Originally Posted by Gollevainen
To reclaim 2 kidnapped teenage soldiers of its army, Israel has directly killed 700 children, women and men. Those 700 people did not kidnap those 2 soldiers. It is also unlikely that Israel will reimburse $2 billion to Lebanon for the damages that it has inflicted. Israel is only behaving what may be termed as a "bully".
Israel forwards an alibi that Hezbollah uses human-shields. But there is no justification that those shields must be destroyed to get to Hesbollah.
Israel has violated every law in the UN charter namely :
a) No respect for the airspace of a soveriegn country.
b) Invading a soveriegn country without provocation
c) Killing innocent civillians en masse
Although Hezbollah controlled south Lebanon, the fact remains that it was the territory of a soveriegn nation. These laws are sacrosanct and it is their adherence alone that distinguishes nations from invaders.
The actions of Israel cannot be described as "brave". They are infact cowardly. Israel possesses F-16 Sufa jets with precision laser and satellite guided munitions. Hezbolla has only AK-47 rifles and unguided rockets which are either the Katyusha from Russia or Iran.
Infact militarily, Hezbollah is more resourceful and has gained global respect for its military operations than the military of Israel.
Hesbollah is indeed a terrorist organization. But Israel may also be described similarly.
