Lebanon Burns Haifa Hit

Israel attacks. Lebanon burns (left).

Hezbollah attacks. Haifa burns (right).

On and on it goes.

If this goes on for long enough, people might begin to ask who stands to benefit from endless war.

Meanwhile...

A very disturbing report today from The Scotsman has the Lebanese Information Minister accusing Israel of "using internationally prohibited weapons against civilians".

Is this something the Lebanese Information Minister would say even if it weren't true?

Is this something Israel would do?

How can we ever know the truth about such claims?

Meanwhile...

"We feel the entire world has left us alone to be slaughtered," said Ali al-Amin ...

To me, stuff like this transcends politics. It's either enough to knock you down and make you weep in fury, regardless of the nationality of the source, or else you need a heart transplant. IMVHO.

It's too bad we don't get much coverage like this in the USA. But oh well. No big surprise there. It's not the first time our news media have let us down, and it won't be the last.

My thoughts on the matter run like this:

May God protect the peaceful people of the Middle East, peaceful people of all countries. And may He smite the warmongers with a terrible swift sword.

Can I get an "amen"?

Thank you. Now please consider this an open thread.
