    Everyone who tries to justify looting from stores owned by Lebanese Civilians because this is "war" keeps forgetting that this is NOT a war against the Lebanese Civilians. How many times does the Gov't have to say this is a war against Hezb. and not a war against Lebanon? If the IDF can find Hezb. food and water stashes, take them. (eat and drink at your own risk...) This is a war against Hezb. and Israel owes them nothing. But this is NOT a war against the Lebanese people. Lebanese Civilian stores cannot be targeted. Even if you believe that every single Lebanese Civilian killed in this conflict was killed because Hezb. was using them as a human shield, you cannot use the same justification for looting civilian stores. There is no way any single soldier is facing the life and death need for water or food that would justify stealing from parties NOT involved with the war.
