Fanning the Flames

Despair in Lebanon, anger in Israel, violence everywhere.

I hold no brief for the anti-Israel lobby, but it is hard to believe that the destruction of roads, power stations and airport terminals in Lebanon is anything other than wanton violence designed to inflict the maximum damage to the lives of the civilian population of that country.

It is also hard to believe that it is anything other than self defeating. An impoverished fearful Lebanon has a lot less to lose than a prosperous and stable country would.

Israel is sowing the wind and will reap the whirlwind. The dreadful missile attacks on Haifa will be matched again and again.

"Those that have the perception must make the allowances" Israel must now show restraint- or take the consequences.
