    WE GIVE MILITARY AID TO ISRAEL THAT KILL LEBANESE CHILDREN.


    Report: Israel requests U.S. expedite delivery of cluster munitions rockets
    New York Times reports Israel made the request since it has been unable to suppress Hezbollah attacks.

    Robert Fisk Reports From Lebanon on the Israeli Bombing of Qana
    This is not the first time that Qana has been devastated by Israeli fire. In 1996, more than 106 villagers died after Israel bombed the UN compound where they were seeking refuge. In the aftermath of the strike 10 years ago, reporting by Robert Fisk led to the United Nations condemnation of the attack. Robert Fisk had just returned from Tyre, where the victims from Sunday's Israeli air strike in Qana were taken following the attack.
    And, of course, every time I saw the “Qana,” I remember that I was actually in Qana ten years ago when the massacre occurred there then. This is the second massacre in the town whose inhabitants believe that this is the place where Jesus turned water into wine in the Bible, most of whom, 95% of whom, are Christians -- I’m sorry, are Muslims. I think all who died were Muslims. The 5% is Christians who have been there for hundreds of years, their families, because they do believe it is the Biblical Qana. There is a claimant to the rival of Qana in Galilee in northern Israel actually.
    The grownups, the adult dead, including twelve women, were taken out later. The children were put in the truck first. Pretty grim. As I said, the children's hair, when you could see the bodies, were matted with dust and mud. And most of them appear to have been bleeding from the nose. I assume that’s because their lungs were crushed by the bomb, and therefore they naturally hemorrhaged as they died.

    IDF commander: We fired more than a million cluster bombs in Lebanon
    Phosphorous and cluster bombs heavily used; unexploded munitions litter wide area of Lebanon.

    By Meron Rappaport
    "What we did was insane and monstrous, we covered entire towns in cluster bombs," the head of an IDF rocket unit in Lebanon said regarding the use of cluster bombs and phosphorous shells during the war.
    In addition, soldiers in IDF artillery units testified that the army used phosphorous shells during the war, widely forbidden by international law. According to their claims, the vast majority of said explosive ordinance was fired in the final 10 days of the war.

    At least the guns we put into the hand of drug cartels killed other drugs cartels. Except the one border agent. Holder , if he ordered Fast and furious, should be given a medal of honor.

    When people hide in schools, you get schools hit. When they hide in churches, the churches get hit. When are people going to learn that if the guy across the street is launching rockets into Isreal, there's a decent change that you would be much better off moving (or letting the authorities know about his exact location.

    When you harbor a man doing these things, your house becomes a target. If your church harbors this activies, it becomes a target.

    It's a sad thing when civilians are thrust into the roll of human shield, but that is the type of people that terrorism breeds.

    Seems like an old report. Cluster munitions have been banned. The Israel War with Hezbollah was a couple of years ago. That being said,we give lots of military aid to many countries who kill. So why single out Israel? I think Foreign Aid in general needs to be reassessed. Time to keep that cash here at home.

    We give to Egypt too...they're killing Coptic Christians as we speak. We should phase out all foreign and military aid I say, but why do you single out Israel?

    Yea napalm is banned to but we still use it.

    With regards to supporting isreals genocide of the palastinians with the help of the USA. Its true, its sad, its horrible, but what can we do about it when our own leadership has walked away from a global agreement to redraw the borders and finally have peace in the middle east? (on 4 occasions now btw)

    Here's an idea...

    How about if Hezzballah & all Palestinians unilaterally stop attacking Isreal. Then if the Isrealis took any military action against them or their people it would be clearly unjustified.

    But when Joe is shooting at Andy and Andy is shooting at Joe, I have are hard time either supporting or condemning either.

    Cluster munitions have NOT been banned. The USA refused to sign on to the ban.

    Think of all the jobs making those cluster munitions will provide for the USA.
