    Natalie Durson, You say, "These attacks did nothing for Israel." Let's see. UNIFIL has 13,000 troops on the Israeli border and the Lebanese Army under Seniora has 15,000 troops. Hezbollah fortifications worth $1 Billion were destroyed by Israel's army before they withdrew. There were 9 Hezbollah fortifications across from Shaba Farms. Now there are none. Hezbollah tried to rally their 'popularity' to overthrow the Seniora government by civil action - Dec 2006. Now its June 2007, Seniora is in power, Nasrallah is in hiding. Someone tossed a couple Katyushas into Israel and attacked UNIFIL. Hezbollah immediately condemned the action and said that they were 'destabilizing Lebanon'. Why - Hezbollah is scared to death of the next Israel-Lebanon War. UNIFIL is protecting them from Israel. Bottom Line - Hezbollah is no longer the 'national resistance'. Lebanese Army (not Hezbollah) fought a mini-war with Pal Al Quaeda radicals.
