Hezbollah has to have the absolute stupidest people in the world. First of all immediately after it was crystal clear that Israel was not going to rewards the abductions of soldiers for convicted murderers and Israel begins an amazing and punishing campaign to release Gilad, Hezbollah repeats the same stupid operation and abducts 2 Israeli soldiers asking for a horrific response which they have yet to see but will. Secondly this comes immediately after the terrorist attack in India that murdered over 200. This help characterize Hezbollah in the continuum of worldwise Arab/Moslem terror. Finally, if their motivation was to help the PALs in Gaza, they couldn't have done anything worse. I can not go into the military/political ramifications in this forum, but be certain that this was the most devastating thing that they could have done to hurt Palestinians in Gaza.
