Abduction of Israeli Solders

13 July, 2006

The capture of three Israeli soldiers by Hamas and Hezbollah during last three weeks followed by a massive Israeli bombardment on civilians in Lebanon and Gaza has opened up a dangerous new front in lingering Middle East conflict.

The Israeli bombardment has left around 50 civilians dead, including women and children in Gaza and Lebanon during last three weeks. The fresh bombardment killed 28 civilians, including 10 children after two Israeli soldiers were captured by Hezbollah guerillas on Wednesday last.

Eight Israeli soldiers were killed, along with a Hezbollah fighter and two Lebanese civilians in the deadliest day on the border since Israel ended its 22-year occupation of southern Lebanon six years ago.

America has held Syria and Iran responsible, and says that Israel has the right to defend its territory and citizens. However, the White House was kind enough to express sorrow over the killings of innocent civilians.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert insists there will be no negotiations with "terrorists" and said he held the Beirut government fully responsible as warplanes, gunboats and artillery pounded Israel`s northern neighbour, hitting Hezbollah and civilian targets including eight bridges.

"Hezbollah, whose militia was instrumental in forcing Israeli troops out of Lebanon in May 2000, demanded the release of Arab prisoners in return for the soldiers.

"They will only return home through indirect negotiations and an exchange of prisoners," Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said, saying the abduction was aimed at drawing international attention to the plight of "thousands of Lebanese, Palestinian and Arab detainees."

Here are few questions
1) Is killing of civilians justified in response to capture of soldiers?
2) Have Hamas and Hezbollah the same right to defence in case of Israeli bombardment, and killing of civilians?
3) Is the demand of Hamas and Hezbollah justified that hundreds of Arab prisoners held by Israel be released first?
4) Will Israel be ready to swap detainees with Hams and Hezbollah as it was previously done?

A Seamless Web & The King's True Body

It might be objected that Mideast are physical phenomena, but legal orders have no physical existence. This is only partly so. On the one hand it is trite that to depict an area it is not enough to describe its physical characteristics. One needs to be take account of its history, traditions, myths, customs, dramas, festivals, power relations, ideologies, languages, conflicts, 'spirit' and, above all, people. Conversely, legal orders do have physical embodiments in documents, dress, more or less photogenic activities and events. Accounts of both legal orders and Mideast have to be expressed in terms of ideas, ideologies, stories, history, mores, people and so on. Believe me when I write that I am tired of the extrem trials solving the right of someones side slinger susceptible, and so on.

Abduction is excuse with Motive -Attempt to hijack Lebanon Syria waterfront

Abduction is excuse with Motive -Attempt to hijack Lebanon Syria waterfront linking to Armenia via kurdistan in Turkey..
Attempt to hijack land of 4 m pop Lebanon Syria waterfront land with bombing and invasion has begun.It is in the interest of Turkey and all Muslim world to stop this Israeli evil design. We should consider dispersing Muslim population from populated region to
Sparsely populated region in future after warding off Israeli settlers' expansionism free
Land acquisition programme.

Prepare us for Jihad.

Now it is the time to come forware to take part in JIHAD. Why we not think this unjustive. Where is the United Nation which is active only when clashes in East Tiamor, Indonisia, Why they not use the Power against Israel. Where is our president Perwaiz Musharaf who are saying some time that we can accept Israel as a country. Now why they not said against Israil, there is no one in Muslims country who could reign Israel.

Following like sheep

To john lawrence, hizbollah and hamas did NOT kidnap those SOLDIERS but ARRESTED them. Please stop spewing out garbage the western media provides you.
I truly think the only solution to the problem is to turn the ovens on for the jews.

Jihad this!

To Saqib Malick, Pakistan

Prepare yourself for Jihad. Strap a bomb around you and detonate it. Do me a favor. Better yet, come to the USA and we'll send you to the promised land. Sorry about that last comment. If you came to the USA you would forget all about this Jihad of yours because you would be working in a 7-11 or Dunkin Donuts.

was the abduction right

everyone in the middle east would have known what would be the response of Israel when the israeli soldiers are abducted. Knowing the consequences and proceeding with the abduction was wrong as the people of lebanon would bear the brunt. Am not saying that Israel's response was right. Am saying that the kidnappers could not be bothered about the sufferings of the people of Lebanon and more interested in their own ideology.

Israel is justified in attacking Lebanon

Israel was under rocket attack from Hisbolla in Lebanon. Israel asked Lebanon to make Hisbolla recognize Lebanese sovereignty, and not attack Israel from Lebanon. Apparently the Lebanese government did not do this, the rocket attacks from Lebanese territory continued, so Israel was compelled to attack Lebanon to reign in Hisbolla.

UN res 1559-both at fault

India had urged both sides to excercise restraint and has said that Israel is doing too much.
Although targetiing the infrastructure and the unfortunate death of suffering of civilians is very very bad, the Hezbollah is not disarming despite the UN resolution 1559 aimed at creating a democratic and civil-war free Lebanon. Isreal says it has to ensure that. It is helping Lebanon's future in a way, otherwise Syria and Iran will not let Lebanon be normal ever.

completely withdraw including
their settlements.Before they
demand the UNSC resolution to
disarm Hezbollah.

Jews never learning from history

Jews or Isarel never learned from history for centuries ago.
Their nations was become trouble-maker in every places where they stayed.
Just matter of time, that all of their brutalism, criminal, teror will be paid back one day.
They will be back to long2x time ago situation. Be slaves again as Firaun emperoe, be victim again when Nazi government.
Just matter a time..., All people, especially moslem will pay of these to them.

Let the kidnapped soldiers return

I hope that the kidnapped soldiers are treated in accordance with the Geneva Convention, and are eventually set free by their captors. We Jews all feel the pain when some of our brothers are in trouble.

Ya`akov N. Miles, Canada - 30 July, 2006

be objective

why must most muslims view all things with a religious spectacle. why don't they judge things without having regard to the religion of the people who are suffering. when muslims in Iraq suffered during Sadam days, where was the outrage and condemnation which is apparent when the persecutors are Jews or non muslims. Why is that when Muslims persecute other Muslims there is no condemnation or outrage but when it persecutor is a non muslim there is total outrage.
