Indeed Israel may well have retreated from Lebanon (and Gaza) having found these battles too expensive and dangerous to prolong but lets rememer these were unilateral actions by Israel the same Israel that now condemns 'unilateral' Palestinian actions. If Israel was so gracious and law abiding to withdrawal from occupied territory in accordance with UN maps previously, why does it steadfastly refuse to do so regarding the West Bank? The hypocrisy of the arguments in favour of supressing any opposition to Israels actions is no more evident than in your comments. Pointing the fingers at others as a form of self defence is pitiful when the fingers are covered in blood.
