Why does Oren refer to these weapons as 'stolen' and 'looted'. Israel went into Lebanon to demolish the PLO's capacity to wage war from there, and discovered huge caches of weaponry. just as the Allies did with every German arms cache discovered during WW2, they confiscated the weapons legitimately. What the he'll does Orne think they should have done? Handed them back politely so PLO terrorism could continue?
