    Barbra: Fox always accuses me of avoiding his question, but in my opinion, Um Al Fahm belongs to Lebanon without Hizbullah participation. That's an impossibility because Hizbullah is much to strong for either the Lebanese Army, Israeli army or American army to take on in battle. For your information, most Israeli Arabs like myself and most Palestinian Arabs are Sunnis. Hizbullah are Shiites and the only Arab sect worse than the Shiites are the Wahabi Arab sect in Saudi Arabia. A real bunch of lunatics. Don't believe me, go to the archives section of Yediot, Maariv & Haaretz. From 1995 onward, Hizbullah defeated every Israeli unit sent against them. Examples in 1997, a 3 man Hizbullah unit ambushed a 16 man unit of the elite Israel Navy Commandos, killing 11, wounding 4 and only 1 Commando was unscratched but psychologically wounded. Again in 1997, Hizbullah ambushed a 10 man patrol of the Israeli paratroops Sayaret Tzanhaneim, killing 3, wounding 4 and rendering that patrol ineffective. In 1999, a 3 man Hizbullah unit again ambushed a 27 man paratroop Sayaret Tzanhaneim patrol, Killing 3, wounding 5 and the remaining Israeli paratroops watched as Hizbullah stripped the bodies of uniforms, food & water, gathered up their IDF M-16s with night vision scopes and the 3 slowly made their way back to Hizbullah lines without the huge Israeli 24 man patrol even firing back at them. These are facts easily available to you in the archives of above newspapers. Being a Sunni I don't like to say it, but Hizbullah has the best Commando force in the Middle East. The IDF kisses butt and takes names as current Defence Minister former Army Commander General Shaul Mofaz has done. Hizbullah kicks butt and doesn't bother to take names. Ask any reporter at Haaretz and he will tell you the same.
