Lebanon is the ONLY Arab nation which was attacked by Israel BEFORE it invaded Israel. It has been for many decades the favorite target for Israel BECAUSE it was no threat to Israel. Israel has not attacked Egypt or Syria for over 40 years, but whenever it feels like kicking the shit out of someone, it attacks Lebanon. During the Second Lebanon War all of the damaged done to Israel was done by Hizbollah, but the overwhelming damage done by Israel was committed against Lebanon and not Hisbollah. Israel cannot comprehend why at the end of that war Hisbollah was no longer an outcast, but part of Lebanon. Israel chose to punish Lebanon, while Hizbollah defended it. Got it? With enemies like Israel, Lebanon needs friends like Hisbollah. Israel is it's own worst enemy because it would rather punish the weak than fight it's enemies. Just like Cast Lead.
