"You have gained nothing and lost much, all because you wouldn`t release women and children held without charge in your jails in exchange for one soldier." Levi#156 I responded by informing you in #179 "The only prisoner Hezbollah have specified is Samir Kuntar who is serving multiple life sentences for the brutal and savage murder of an Israeli father(civilian) in front of his young daughter who was then murdered herself by smashing her tiny head with a rock. Oh yes he was charged and admitted his crimes" PS you also incorrectly stated that no charges had been brought to these "prisoners". Yet in #193 you arrogantly state "And try to focus. This current crisis began in Gaza when Hamas members snatched an IDF soldier to gain a prisoner swap." So forgive me if I somewhat arrogantly respond. You probably were not been listening to the news for some time but Hezbollah have long been threatening to take Israeli hostages and launched a full scale assault similar to this weeks on the Norhtern border some MONTHS ago. Wow! Now get this, it is earth shattering news for the hard of learning. THIS WAS BEFORE THE GAZA OPERATION OR THE KIDNAP OF THE IDF SOLDIER BY HAMAS! Will this change your analysis? Not one bit. You never did any, you simply jumped on a convenient bandwagon and forgot to think before you posted. When angry we are prone to irrational statements. Get some sleep Levi. Might help to get your thoughts in better order.
