    Mr. Lincoln: 1) My name is Shmuel, not Shumel. 2) The first quote that you attribute to me are not my words. I'm not quite sure where you got that quote from. 3) I don't know what your sources are for the number of casualties that you claim. According to Lebanese security forces, the death toll is 716 (according to CNN as of 5:02 pm EST), and other news agencies have claimed even less. Your own Houston Chronicle, at http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/ap/world/4092970.html , had an article about the difficulty in counting the dead in Lebanon. I suppose you still think that 60 people were killed in Qana, despite the Lebanese Red Cross and Human Rights Watch, which both recently put the number at 28. 4)Isn't it interesting that NATO in Kosovo and Allied Forces in Iraq experienced similar difficulty in avoiding civilian casualties? Wake up to the nature of the enemy, who don civilian clothing and operate within civilian areas.
