And if they hide among innocent civilians, there is nothing that can be done to prevent their harm. We do not allow murderers and bank robbers to run free to continue their terror in this country, even if they abduct innocent bystanders. We use force to stop them. And if they shoot at the police, they are killed on the spot. It’s called self-defense, in case the liberals don’t understand.

    Hezbollah joys in each and every civilian casualty because it furthers their political interests and ideology…make Israel out to be the bad guy…recruit more Israeli haters willing to kill Jews and die in the process (jihad)…gain prestige & political clout in the Arab world as the only Arab/Muslim force that has ever effectively stood up against the mighty IDF…and hopefully gain political control of Lebanon.
