    While it would have been better for Israel (and western civilization) for the IDF to have come home with Nasrallah in chains, the lack of having done so is less of a defeat for the free world than it once seemed (as is well expressed here). Partly it is a matter of expectations. True many thought that Israel would rid Lebanon, the region and the world of the curse of Hizbullah. That did not happen. But while the Israelis did not do the work of freeing Lebanon for the Lebanese (which is a shame but not necessarily an Israeli bailiwick), the Israelis did do the work of establishing quiet for themselves, and that is all they need to thrive. I was in the Gallilee and Golan this weekend. What beauty, what plenty, what calm and what prosperity! The Arab and Jewish villages are full of new lovely houses, the tourist sites are brimming, the agriculture is fantastic. All this is the clearest answer to the culture of death just across the borders.
