I'm no expert at international law, but isn't Lebanon a sovereign country with the right to defend itself, too?

Let me get this straight: first the IDF blows up the bridges and highways and divides Lebanon into two and makes escape for the civilians virtually impossible, then tells the locals via automated phone calls to get out or they'll be annihilated? Isn't that ethnic cleansing and genocide?

What kind of civilized people engage in this practice? Does anybody in Israel remember what the Nazis did to the Warsaw Ghetto?

This is sick. Sick. Sick.

I went 36 hours without watching the news, reading the news, logging on to the news, and I've already this morning got into a shouting match (at church no less) with somebody who insisted that the Lebanese were one and the same with Hezbollah.

Even if that were true, which the world knows is not the case, why would Israel attack the United Nations peacekeeping forces, and kill innocent civilians from Brazil, Canada, the Philippines, Sri Lanka in addition to the Lebanese civilians?

Is there no understanding of international law in Israel?
