Those among you who think that diplomacy is a good idea, remember that Israel really cannot deal with any group that seeks Israel's destruction as part of its core beliefs Hezbullah and Hamas seek to destroy Israel period. Sure a cease fire sounds good but the fact is, Hezbullah attacked Israel, and wants to destroy Israel. Sure they'll agree to a cease fire but only until they break it later on. Put is this way, if all of the Islamic Fascists were to lay down their arms, would Israel attack them? No they wouldn't. If Israel were to lay down their arms, would they be overrun by those that seek Israel's destruction? Yes they would. What Israel needs to do is to completely destroy Hezbullah in Lebanon and hand over power in Southern Lebanon back to the Lebanese. We should all support Israel's actions to protect itself from future attacks, not appease those who transparantly call for cease fires which everyone knows they won't really hold to.
