    It's fine to 'express regret' at the loss of life. It's wrong to apologize for doing what one must to stop being attacked. Israel has the video of the launchers in Qana. Israel gave notice that civilians should leave. Obviously, some chose to stay and provide Hizbollah with children they thought of as either shields or martyrs. :dunno:

    Im afraid that in todays' world what you say in nearly more important as what you do and apparently Israel recognizes that fact. Repeatedly stating the are "sorry" for civilian deaths is for public consumption and critics. It's an obligatory statement for those that Israel can do no right by. In the mean time they continue to fight as they must for those that support and understand thier right to self defense by whatever means necessary.

    This is becoming a show down between the UN, the US and Israel. With the US feigning inability to stop the fighting and the Hizbullys' offensive still occuring, the UN looks as impotant as ever.

    The apologies amount to an admission of guilt. That is how both the Islamics and the UN will play it. Not to mention Chirac.

    According to the Islamics, the UN and Chirac, Israel is ALWAYS guilty. This is just PR stuff to float out to the media.

    And the MSM reports it in light of UN and Chirac. Get a grip on reality, it's not just PR, but reality.

    If Israel did not "apologize" you know what the headlines would be?

    " ISRAEL KILLS CIVILIANS AND WON'T EVEN APOLOGIZE "

    How about, "X number of innocent civilians claimed to be killed. Israel disputes the 'innocent civilian' numbers."

    Can anyone give me a link where Hezbollah apologizes for killing and targeting innocents in Isreal? After all, they are the good guys in this fight, right? Why else would the MSM portray Israel as antagonists?

    Because Israel knows the MSM would never print that. In PR you have to understand how the media will spin an event and try to pre empt it.
