I have never stated it was a peace organization. It was created as a result of the occupation of southern Lebanon by Israel. It has functioned primarily in a defensive role. It and Israel have both caused occasional incidents since the withdrawal from most of southern Lebanon by Israel. There is no question it caused a major provocation last summer when it seized hostages for ransom. It was Olmert who decided to respond with a war against Lebanon instead of just giving Hizbollah the pounding which they deserved and expected. The attack in Argentina was a retaliation by Iran for the killing of three Iranian diplomats by Israelis. The people killed in Argentina were not connected to the occupation, neither was their being targeted for a terrorist attack.
