"It seems like a apardox that Israel is supposedly trying to avoid civilian casualties, but has killed more than 10 times the number of civilians as Hizbollah, who is not trying to avoid civilian casualties." How is that a paradox? Israel has killed ten times the civilians as Hezbollah BECAUSE Hezbollah is not trying to avoid civilian casualties and also due to Israel taking great efforts to protect it's civilian population with bomb shelters and such. That takes precedent over all else for Israel. Hezbollah does not protect or defend the people of Lebanon. To do so would never even occur to them. They do not care about the Lebanese and find their casualties to be too valuable in propaganda terms anyway. Lebanon has few bomb shelters but they would have plenty if they had themselves as neighbors.
