...as long as you ignore all the facts that contradict him. You have to admire how he quickly brushes aside UNIFIL's confirmation that the Israeli soldiers were in Israeli territory. It's awfully hard to violate another country's sovereignty when you haven't actually crossed into it. Levy also outright deceives in comparing the Gaza fence to the current one. The Gaza fence has always had a well-publicized no-go zone, while WRT to the Lebanon fence, Israel regularly receives permission from UNIFIL to clear trees and vegetation used by terrorists to hide and snipe from. So while it may have been wiser for Israel to wait for another approval, the Lebanese forces knew full well that nothing unusual was happening. And they certainly had time to go through gov't channels or complain to the UN. But the bottom line is that while Gazan terrorists continue to endanger the IDF and Israelis by repeated attempts to plant bombs near the fence or infiltrate, there is no such precedent in the area of the Lebanese fence from Israel's side. So the equation of the two situations by Levy is invalid. Lebanon was not protecting its sovereignty; it viciously took advantage of a technicality to attack the IDF.
