How can Israel think for one second that hitting civilian lebanese is a way to weaken Hezbollah? For every child crushed under a Tsahal bomb, how many able adults are gonna join the ranks of Hezbollah? This war is not fought in the best interest of Israel, on the contrary. I can definitively understand the frustration in Israel, but this mass destruction of Lebanon will do nothing but strengthen Israel's ennemies, and allienate its allies. Senator Lieberman, for example, Israel's chosen democratic candidate in the US, is currently loosing ground because of this war. Israel has a lot more to loose, continuing this war than a few acres of land, and a few prisonners.
