Are Hezbollah and Hamas the victims?

Reader comment on item: Israel's Unnecessary War in Lebanon
in response to reader comment: Blaming the Victims

Submitted by Moshe (Israel), Jul 19, 2006 at 12:13

Can you please explain what are you trying to tell us?

That constantly trying to destroy Israel is OK with you, but for Israel to defend itself is illegitimate?

That these criminals who are indiscriminately bombing Israeli cities, sending suicide bombers on mass murder missions, taking hostages for blackmailing are victims as soon as Israel is hitting back at them?

Have these "poor victims" ever tried to change their murderous nature, stop the violence, and try to "live and let live" for a change?

What are you talking about my dear?
