    Israel-Lebanon conflict

    Hundreds of innocent people die in both countries but it seems that world leaders are not going to stop their geopolitical games and will continue that cruel bloodshed.

    With whom are you? Whould be interesting to know all kinds of opinion.

    I'm on the side of civilians who suffer both in Israel and Lebanon.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    I'm on Israel's side. They've been bending over backwards to try to keep peace there, but it's about time they stood up for themselves again. I'm just waiting for their victory and hoping there aren't too many losses on their side (I have an Israeli friend who helps keep me up to date).

    Isreal is just as much of a terrorist group as Al-Qaida. Check this out:

    And no, i'm not anti-semetic. I'm just not somebody who agrees with a nation that commits war crimes in the name of self-defense.

    It is. But there are a lot of people in the USA that don't agree with the current policy of unconditional support for Isreal.

    Зато они, наверное, были согласны с ответом своего правительства на убийство в Бейруте двухсот сорока одного солдата в 1983 году.

    It is pretty plain to see that Israel wears a White hat.

    What is hard to see is why there is so much negative said about Israel. That is what should really be the topic of discussion.

    Наверное, лучше вернуться к русскому языку.

    @DDT:

    It's the same thing as why there is so much bad stuff said about America. The two countrie's situations are pretty much identical - a few crazy people kidnap soldiers / kill thousands of innocent people. The response? Invasion of a foreign country.

    Yes, but they are defective people, like many of the interviewees in your film. I mean what would you expect a reporter from "The Village Voice" to say?

    I'm not just talking about people in the film. I agree, it obviously has a bias, but the facts remain.

    Oh come now! There were no real facts presented in the film. It was simply a sham to beguile the gullible and people who know nothing of Israel and history.

    You want to know why Israel gets a proportionally harder time for acting just as badly as the terrorists they are fighting?

    Да? Точно также? Что то я не слышала о том, что Насбулла разбрасывает листовки, предупреждающие о предстоящей бомбёжке?


    Isreali warplanes drop leaflets over Lebanon warning local residents to flee.

    Well, maybe they drop leaflets with something like "surrender, don't panic, stay home", ah?

    I'm with Lebanon. Israel needs to chill a little.

    I'm on the fence like usual. Both sides are in the wrong. The total destruction of Lebonon is uncalled for, but so is Hizbollah's terrorism.

    No one side can claim to be in the right. Give me one argument and I can counter it with with ten.
