    The Hezbollah took two Israeli soldiers; which was not a warcrime. Israel started mass bombings of Lebanese civillian targets. Hezbollah has no sophisticated fighterjets with laser-guided bombs. Israel has the most sophisticated weaponery in the world. Yet Israel deliberately aimed bombs at civilian targets. The latter is a true war crime, whereas Hezbollah had no other option than to strike back with Katyusha missiles. Last but not least: Israel is and claims to be a democratic state. Its population can vote for a government and order this government to establish peace with neighbouring countries. Since the Israeli population voted for a right-wing government full of warmongers an religeous fanatics, the people of Israel simply asked for troubles. And the people of Israel will continue to ask for serious problems as long as it votes for people like Sharon, Nethanyahu, Barak, Olmert and so on. Israel can have peace tomorrow though it prefers to wage wars for territorial expansions.
