    Impartial, sorry about the Abraham sarcasm, I was responding to a pejorative remark about Ishmael and I get edgy whenever any religion is attacked and this has been going on since a couple of days on this site. Arabs too are getting a piece of my mind for the same abuses. I'm sure the number of declared dead included fighters, as you too is supposing but I don't know how much. The important thing to remember is that too many died on both sides. Hizbullah started the ball with the kidnappings, a planned simple mini operation that would result in a quick swap like the last time with Sharon and within a few weeks they would get their people back and be heroes. It didn't go as planned. To everybody's surprise, Olmert responded with massive strikes all over Lebanon. Hizbullah responded the next day with their rockets and the rest you know. Please see Impartial II for continuation of answer.

Pollard’s release feels like a consolation prize

The fact that the convicted spy's release is happening at such a low moment in U.S.-Israel ties casts a pall over the news.
