Unfortunate Lebanon

Reader comment on item: Israel's Unnecessary War in Lebanon

Submitted by Paul K. (United States), Jul 19, 2006 at 10:31

Simply put:

"if you take away arms from terrorists (Hezbollah & Hamas) there would be peace in Israel. If you take away arms from Israelis, there would be a slaughter house to all Jews in Israel."

Israel cannot negotiate with terrorists. Any civilized country has to hold its attackers responsible for their actions. In this case (unfortunately) Lebanon gave safe heaven to Hezbollah for the past 6 years, knowing that they were bringing in arms from Syria and Iran. Also accepting Hezbollah into Lebanese parliament (against the UN resolution 1559).

Why did they do that? Why did they allow Hezbollah people continuously fire rockets into Israel for the past 6 years? It is not just the capture of 2 Israeli soldiers that ignited this war. Israel said to the world "Enough is enough, we will not be attacked by terrorists any longer and will hold any land responsible for their actions, as any country would.

Get rid of this group in Lebanon and let peace prevail in this country and Israel will remain its partner and prosper together
