    He's sooo right. Now it's very sad to say that, but Israel has achieved exactly the opposite of its objectives. Hisbollah are stronger than they were before (I mean moraly - in front of the muslim world, not militarly - they never were strong militarly and they will never be). Israel is left with two bad options, expand attacks and having to fight a guerilla during months, maybe years with a possible great harm to its economy or leave the place and let the UN or the Libanese forces take over (couldn't this be achieved through negociation?) with the risk that Hisbollah end up beeing seen as the heroic winner. At the same time it leaves a country, Libannon, in ashes and with a strong resentement against the IDF.... This "war" can't be won militarly!

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
