    Perhaps this would be a good time to thank your lucky stars that Nasrallah did not fight a total war against Israel in the late unpleasantness. Had Hizbollah not restrained itself from attacking the harbor facilities at Haifa, which were a legitimate target, a catastrophe could easily have ensued. It isn't as though it isn't well known that Haifa is a major port, and that large chemical and petrochemical facilities are located there. A halfway intelligent person with a computer can get maps and satelite views of those facilities. These facilities require a seaport, so cannot be moved or well hidden and still function. Israel should give it's assasination plans serious thought before shelving them, as the devil you will create will not choose to be so restrained. Your nation will live to regret it, at least for a while. It is still not to late to join the community of nations, before your leadership and national arrogance lead you to repeat the stupidity of the zealots at Masada
