It's funny how you deny history.
BA is a man (child) who thinks that Egypt wanted to start a war against Israel in 1967 to give Palestinians independence in the Gaza Strip no matter it was Egypt who controlled (occupied) the strip. This is what he said on Mar 7th:
No, the Israeli's started the 67 war when they attacked Egyptian air fields near Sinai to take Gamal Abdel Nasser out of power who was trying to help the Palestinians create a homeland in Gaza.
In the 1967 war, Israel was the one that made the first
attack. They are the ones that attacked the Egyptian airfields and that started the 67 war. Following that attack, Egypt, Jordan, and Syria retaliated. Lebanon was neutral and was not involved.
BA thinks that attacking civilians and killing a teenager is legitimate but when retaliating against the guns that opened fire and setting a fire (wow, a fire), this is a terror attack.
And it's really funny how you twist around the truth. You're really good at propoganda, you know? I'm not even going to bother arguing with you because it's pointless. This shows you didn't even bother reading the articles or are denying the facts!
That's bad sportsmanship Avi.....
For the billion time, BA. The UN set the border between Israel and Lebanon and the security council accepted a resolution that Israel completely withdrew from Lebanon on May 2000. End of story.
Israel stopped flying over Lebanon at that time until Lebanon renewed its attacks against Israel on October 2000. Since than Israel has 8 dead soldiers (3 of them somewhere in Lebanon, they hijacked) and 6 civilians. Lebanon got what it wanted (Israeli withdrawal) but I guess it was too good for some of them.
The Topic should have been: Lebanon Attacks Israel And Threatens More Attacks
The UN did not settle the issue regarding the Shebaa farms. The May 2000 withdrawl had absolutely nothing
to do with the Shebaa farms. The Shebaa farms goes to the days before the south occupancy. Israel has occupied the Shebaa farms since 1967 when they acquired the Golan Heights. They refuse to leave, for the following reason:
Yes Hizbullah still continued to attack Israeli military positions after the pullout. And actually, Israel resumed flyovers one-month after the withdrawl. They resumed the flyovers in August of 2000. The resume of the flyovers plus the continued occupancy of the Shebaa Farms lead to more attacks against Israeli forces by Hizbullah. That's Israel's fault. Who are the occupyers Avi, Hizbullah or Israel? Is Hizbullah occupying part of Israel? Tell me, are they? Hizbullah was created shortly after the Israeli invasion of 1982 and vowed to fight the occupation and liberate Lebanon. They kicked out the Israeli's from southern Lebanon in July 2000 and that was a huge milestone in Lebanese history. It became a national holiday. May 25 is "Liberation Day", all schools, and businesses close on this day to celebrate Hizbullah's victory of liberating south Lebanon that reunited hundreds of Lebanese family. The south was like Berlin during the cold war. Anyone who was in the southern part of Lebanon that was occupied was not allowed to visit there families in the north and vice versa. Families were reunited for the first time in 22 years.
Now Hizbullah continues to fight Israel because of there daily illegal flyovers in Lebanon and the continued occupancy of the Shebaa farms.
Hizbullah will continue to attack Israeli military positions until all Lebanese lands are free and Israel stops it's illegal flyovers.
Since you don't bother reading any of the articles (4 of which are NOT Lebanese articles and state BOTH sides viewpoint) because you are too afraid to accept the truth, let me point out some things. Note this statement by Hizbullah:
"If the Israelis don't want to hear the sound of anti-aircraft rounds that annoy and scare them, they must stop the air attacks...Then they will not hear these sounds," he said.
But he said the Shi'ite Muslim group, backed by Iran and Syria, had targeted only Israeli jets. Israeli officials accuse Hizbollah of deliberately aiming anti-aircraft fire at civilian areas in northern Israel.
"Hizbollah did as it normally does to confront violations of Lebanese sovereignty and airspace by confronting these planes," Izzedine said. "As in the past, shrapnel fell on some settlements. This shrapnel sometimes hits and sometimes doesn't. This time, there were casualties."
By the way, the above incident happened before. One month ago, an Israeli in the north was wounded when shrapnel from Hizbullah anti-aircraft rounds fell on a school when Hizbullah was firing at Israeli fighter planes that violated Lebanese airspace. So this recent incident is just routine except this time there was a death.
Lebanese president made a statement:
All I gotta say is it's really funny how Israel retaliates to the death of 1 person by sending a fleet of fighter planes and bomb a country. In addition to the recent attack above, Israeli fighter planes flew a few hundred feet over Beirut shaking apartment buildings, shattering windows, and they bombed residential areas in the suburb of Khalde just south of Beirut Airport.
