I agree that it was time for Israel to act and defend themselves aggainst Hezbollah and Hamas.

The problem has been that they are attacking the people of Lebanon and they are destroying the infrastructure of this country along the way.

What Israel has done so far in Lebanon has no forgiveness they have destroyed electrical plants, fuel depots, buildings throughout the city, hospitals, the International Airport. They have chosen the wrong strategies to do the right thing hurting and killing innocent people along the way.

Its very easy for the Iraeli army to tell or demand for Lebanese civilians to leave their homes and belongings and to be left without anything or to end up as refugees in Syria. How can the jewish people who have suffered so much and who know what it means to have nothing so easily come and offer the same fate for these people.

Israel is being extremely cruel and unfair with the Lebanese people and their country.

I also want to tell you that the percentage of people as you say that have missiles in their houses cannot even reach a half of 1%. I have lived with Lebanese neighbors and have had many friends from Lebanon and that is not their nature. How easily can Israel with their army destroy the houses of innocent people, their cities and all what they have and own.

I always thought that Israel was a world leader a country formed by God loving people . I thought that the jewish people were fair and were people that stood for values, morals, tradition and God.......I was wrong.

Israel is giving the people of Lebanon a drink from the same cup that they were served by the nazis.

How fair is it to have thousands of lebanese refugees fleeing into Siria and 25,000 americans fleeing and terrified because of the indiscriminate bombings of the Israeli Air Force.

I am ashamed of what Israel is doing.

I am not just any person I am a ex refugee and I am a armed forces veteran who has seen more than what most people have seen.
