Hizbullah Blending into Civilian Population

According to United Nations' emergency relief co-ordinator, Jan Egeland:
"The Israeli military attacks are all over the country. There are aerial bombardments which are in hundreds of places really. I think it is a disproportionate response, really," Mr Egeland told the BBC.

"But I also clearly see that Hezbollah is trying to blend into the civilian population in too many places and they bear also a heavy responsibility for this. They do not seem to care that they really inflict a lot of suffering on their own population," he added.

I am glad to see a semblance of "proportionality" in Jan's comments. More often than not, they are one sided.

How can it be acceptable or even tolerated that Israel can violate the Geneva convention, about a dussin pragaphs in international law, and UN resolution 242 and 338 for over 40 years. It makes me sick to my stumach when I hear Israeli officials talk of UN resolutions, what deary, what hypocrites. If ever there were an axes of evil it started when the modern Israely state came in to existens.

I came across your blog by chance and found it extremely interesting. I hope you all stay safe and that the current warfare ceases soon. Politics are complicated, and politicians often have agendas that do not fit the wishes of the people they are supoposed to represent. That is true in my counry, as well. Perhaps your blog will help people to understand the situation in your part of the world. Thanks for writing.

Stop with the hypocrisy Salaheddin, all you people forget about all the human rights and geneva convention when you carry out terrorist attacks on people of other faiths. And don't say its a small minority in your community doing it, small or big, its your community and you share the responsibility too.
