Israel: Is so much violence necessary? July 14, 2006

Posted by dtenjo in News and politics, Politics.

Ok, I am not an expert in the Israel-Arab situation, I know pretty much only what they say on the news. But after seeing all that’s happened this week, I can only say… Has it been too much already?

Granted, the Israeli soldiers are retained by Hezbollah, and maybe there are ties between this terrorist group and the Lebanese government. But, is all the violence displayed by Israel necessary? Fine, Israelis have their right to defend themselves, if their soldiers were kidnapped like they said. But enough is enough, and I don’t consider that anything justifies so much harm done to the Lebanese country.

Are there valid reasons to attack? I don’t know. I tend to think that perhaps there may be, but I honestly don’t know all the details, so I can’t take a real position here. Some people are saying that the kidnapping of the soldiers happened in order to pushe for an exchange for Lebanese prisoners being held by Israel. However, if the Lebanese government does protect the Hezbollah group, and there are ties of terrorism with Iran and Syria, then it seems like Israel perhaps would have a right to defend themselves. It doesn’t matter too much. All that I know is that the use of force has to be measured. Lebanon is a country that has suffered from too much violence, and injustice. Obviously those who are affected the most have always been the most innocent people, the children, the poor… Why does Israel want to keep destructing Lebanon in this way? It seems like there was a reconstruction process going on in the Lebanon, but now, it all has been destroyed again by the Israeli attacks. How is this justified? Please, Israel: measure your actions.
