    Its never ok to kill civilians. Being arab doesn't make it ok. Hence the percentage of soldiers to civilians deaths is much HIGHER on Israel's side as opposed to the Lebanese one. As for those who wonder what good did this war do for Lebanon. Well it did a lot. Yeah, the country suffered lots of damage and destruction by the Israeli war machine, but the people affected by this war, grew a stronger will to fight. All the prior conflicts between Amal and Hizbollah are gone. They unified their goal, and identified their enemy together this time, making them stronger politically. Second, and most importantly, a group of strong willed, well trained men, brought Israel and its might to a stalemate, if not defeat. The way the arabs saw Israel as this undefeatable aggressor has changed. Indeed, an all out war over the Israeli-Arab conflict is likely to leave the Arabs victorious. Something they NEVER saw possible before this war.
