    I have no love for Hizbollah. It is a religious fundamentalist organisation with a world view I do not support. I do not think Israel or any other nation should be expected to do noting when attack. But lets keep it specific. Israel had been overflying Lebanon for years, intimidating the population in the south. Hizbollah kidnapped IDF personel and in the ensuing fight 8 IDF were killed. Israel had a right to take action against that specific event. It did not, in my mind, have the right to carry oput a witherng attack against all of Lebanon, destroying its tourist infrastructure, polluting its beaches, dropping over a million cluster bombs in civilian areas. That it did not have a right to do. It was meant as nothing but a punitive measure to inflict as much suffering as would be permitted by the international community. After this attack, Hizbollah attacked northernIsrael.I do not feel the one Jewish state was in danger ofbeing destroyed.
