Deeper and Deeper

After the fierce attacks in Baalback last night, some 130 kilometers north of the Israeli border, which resulted in Israeli air drops and the kidnapping of Hizbullah members by Israeli commandos, the group fired over 300 rockets into Israel in retaliation since dawn. In response, Israel's army chief Dan Halutz said that his country will resume air strikes deep inside Lebanon, including Beirut. And 15-minutes after that statement, Hizbullah targeted the region close to the town of Beit Shean in Israel. This is so far the deepest attack on Israel, some 70-kilometers south of the Lebanese border. The town is some 30 kilometers south of Haifa and 55 kilometers south east of Israel's third largest city.
The rocket used was the newly revieled Khaibar-1, a derivative of the Fajr-5. Beit Shean is marked by the yellow spot.

great stuff.

well done to Lebanon and their self destructive tactics. if Lebanon didnt allow Itran and Syria to arm these Hizbullah bastards there wouldnt be a conflict and you would have had the wonderful summer you were hoping to have with all the tourists, festivals and fine food....

This bloody missile landed near Jenin!!! what are they hoping here? to kill us brothers in Palestine now?

Shame on Lebanon!

The government of Iran is probably laughing, they get to have missles fired at Isreal, and Lebanon takes all the damage instead of them.

Hasan its a good point but the government have started negotiations with hezbollah. It's not as simple as just disarming hezbollah or just stopping the flow of weapons to them. The Hezbollah issue and the issue of their arms is immensely complex, and cannot be summarised by your short denunciation of the lebanese for not disarming them. This is illogical, and you're jumping to a hasty conclusion that is incorrect.
To understand it all you have to look into history and see how the Shia community formed in Lebanon and how it developed amid poorer surroundings compared to other communities. You cant just talk about disarming them without tackling the really deep issues that lie at the base of the shia community. Which makes this conflict look like its going to keep on going...

ano, ok you can take your point and look at history but I dont think it will help resolve the here and now.

the fact is that Lebanon shamefully agreed to Iran and Srya keeping control ovedr the south and its the reason why we are now in this mess where Israel is destroying us.

its terrible

Man Lebanon's never ever ever had full control over all our land.. we've always been weak. And we've always been at the mercy of outside, stronger, regional powers. This is since the inception of our country, and even before (Ottoman empire, then the French in the 1800's, then the mandate period etc etc).. This is perhaps not something Lebanese like to hear, but we gotta admit it.
Therefore, is it surprising that Iran and Syria hold sway in our country? It's a crap situation and I wish our government could control our country, but let's be honest, it has always been the case and it does not loook like it is changing: foreign powers make decisions for Beirut.

The Goverment of Lebanon really did need outside help, first and foremost would have had to be money to build the things people needed, and to offer services for those who needed it.

This would have been needed first to avoid a civil war, and win support from people swayed by the fact that Hezbollah WAS doing these things.

My opinion is that Lebanon was really coming back, and was making itself a pretty nice tourist place, which in turn brings it back with the rest of the civilized world. If given enough time, I think the Lebanon government would have gained more and more power and respect and eventually would have been able to remove Hezbollah with support from most of the people...it's sad they never got the chance.

I am truly confused by the fact that people there would support Hezbollah knowing full well they are militant. 1000 people with AK47s and rockets couldn't start a war like this...the people supporting them is the problem.

I agree with her comment, I am American, but fully believe MSNBC and CNN try to show a disporportionate amount of pro-U.S. material.

Arab countries do the same thing even though they sometimes believe their news is more realistic than U.S. news.

I think this ladies views are shared by many myself included, but the way she makes it sound like almost all of Lebanon feel the same, but are scared to say so, I think is untrue at this time.

I appologize for tool, he is my friend in real life. Last week he admitted to his mom for the first time we are lovers, and she is very much against being homosexual and kicked him out of the house without caring where he would live. He is staying at my place, and very upset, but I will try to keep him offline.

excellent topic. given that Iran will soon take over Lebanon fully, I wonder what all the top bottom gay guys will do? where will they hide? will Ramsay Short give them a hiding place or hand them over to the Iranians for public killings?

or will they flee to Tel Aviv where they can live freely?
