An Open Letter To Hezbollah

Posted by codemorse

Dear Hezbollah,

Israel's bombings of Lebanon have worried many a bleeding-heart. The pictures of Israeli children writing messages on bombs evoke a sadness that requires a heart of stone not to feel.

But anger is the only emotion I feel at the notion of your group hiding weapons among civilians and children in order to induce civilian casualties or, as the Military prefers to refer to them, "collateral damage."

There is a certain cruel cunning in doing so. Vlad Tepes would be proud. But those of us who value human life are appalled.

Stop it.

Ten bucks says I guess what their response would be.

Why should they stop? It works. And they don't care.

Well, because Hezbollah is bound to frequent small, bi-partisan blogs and be instantaneously won over by my workmanlike prose, obviously.

Would that it were so, my friend.

I haven't read anything about secreting weapons caches amongst civilians, but I am seeing reporting that Hezbollah militants scrupulously avoid civilians, for fear of the informants who've made things difficult for Hamas and the PLO.

The IDF will defend the citizens of Israel from attacks by the Hizbullah and the responsibility for any civilian casualties rests with the Hizbullah who have turned the suburbs of Lebanon into a war front by firing missiles from within civilian areas.

Residents in this region and specifically the residents of Qana were warned several days in advance to leave the village. Eighteen Israeli civilians have been killed and over 400 have been wounded by these rocket attacks which have disrupted the lives of tens of thousands of Israeli citizens.

The IDF regrets any harm to uninvolved civilians, but this is the result of Hizbullah terrorist organization's contemptible use of Lebanese civilians as human shields.
