The name of the game has changed.israel for the first time is experiencing war on her territory, it was inevitable. Rockets/ Missiles do not allow walls to stop them. Hezbollah is not another terrorist group, first it is a part of the Lebanese govt. as much as the IRA was part of Sinn Fein. More important and more dangerously, it is the front line attacking force of Iran/ Syria. Nazrlullah is the new Arafat, AhMADinejad the new Nasser, 40 years on. Occupying Lebanon is not an option or a solution,neither is fighting a war with your hands tied behind your back. Beating yourself up on "opportunities missed" also does not help. Short of attacking Iran and Syria, using the nuclear threat there has to be a solution first short term and then long term. When Sinn Fein decided that after 30 years to call "enough" N.Ireland has prospered. Let us pray the same reality comes to Israel's enemies before they believe their own publicity, the alternative is too awful to contemplate.
Law expanding definition of terrorist activity passes first Knesset reading (Haaretz)
