This morning rockets, apparently of Iranian or Syrian manufacture, fell on Haifa, killing 8 people and wounding about fifty. The rockets were launched by the Hezbollah, a member of the Lebanese government operating with the approval and encouragement of the Lebanese government, in violation of UN Security Council resolutions 1680 and 1559.. These resolutions called for disarming of the Hezbolla and other militias.

Additional rockets have fallen at various locations around northern Israel, killing three others, wounding many and perpetrating extensive property damage. The rockets did not cause more damage owing to the poor aim of the Hezbollah, but that does not transform them from war criminals to saints. They are war criminals, and the Lebanese government that permitted them to arm themselves and to carry out these attacks are war criminals.

I did not write "Hezbollah Kills Israeli Civilians" because it is the Lebanese government that is reponsible for these attacks. It is peculiar that there are so many headlines that say "Israel kills Lebanese Civilians" and none that read "Lebanon Kills Israeli Civilians," especially in the BBC of all places. In the course of WW II, RAF bombing attacks on the "militants" in Germany killed many thousands of German civilians. Yet we can be sure that there were no headlines in Britain that read "Britain kills German Civilians."

The Hezbollah attacks and kidnapping of Israeli soldiers are viewed here as an extension of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad's threat to bring about a "World without Zionism." There was no reason and no excuse for the attack.

The usual sorts of people are busy inventing reasons and justifications for the Hezbullah attacks. Excuse number 1 is that since Israel holds Lebanese "hostages," it is OK for Hezbollah to take Israeli hostages. The hostage that the Hezbollah supposedly want to free is Samir Kunter. This saint has been jailed in Israel since a 1979 attack in the northern town of Nahariyah, in which he entered an apartment and murdered three family membersand an Israeli police officer.

An even wilder fiction that is invented, is that the Israeli force was ambushed when it entered Lebanese territory. The patrol was a routine border patrol that never crossed the blue line.

Lebanese PM Fuad Seniora has announced that he is willing to deploy the Lebanese army over all of Lebanon and to keep order. We are waiting for him to first deploy the Lebanese army in Beirut and arrest the leaders of the Hizbullah. He can start in his own cabinet.
