that explains the repeating complaint as to why do they hate us?
I got kind of dizzy reading that, as there was PLENTY of anti-Israeli spin therein.
I for one have never believed that the question "why do they hate us" is worth asking. The shame of the entire situation is that, being 3,000+ years in the making, nobody knows who threw the first stone - so nobody knows who should really be apologizing, or throwing the last stone as it were.
Whatever the reasons for the start of the war, the reasons it's on-going are clear - Hezbollah is being empowered by non-Lebanese to keep stirring this pot. The emotional passages written by Israeli's and Lebanese alike regarding the "Why's", etc. are the direct result of this deeply psychological influence being put in place by Iran & Syria - it's exactly what they want...the more, the better. The blood of the innocent civilians dying in both Israel and southern Lebanon is on neither the hands of Israel NOR Lebanon - it dries on the hands of Iran and Syria. If there is to be outrage about this situation, it should be directed jointly toward those incubators of terrorism and evil.
Enough is enough already.
