Was Only A Matter Of Time

AP (07.30.06):
"An Israeli airstrike killed at least 56 people, including at least 34 children, in a southern Lebanese village Sunday, the Lebanese Red Cross said. It was the deadliest attack in 19 days of fighting. Security officials said the toll rose dramatically after 18 people from two families were found in a single room of the building, where dozens of people had been taking refuge from the fighting." 34 Youths Among 56 Dead in Israeli Attack
"Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice postponed a visit to Lebanon in a setback for diplomatic efforts to end hostilities." "'One must understand the Hezbollah is using their own civilian population as human shields,' said Israeli Foreign Ministry official Gideon Meir. 'The Israeli defense forces dropped leaflets and warned the civilian population to leave the place because the Hezbollah turned it into a war zone.'" So Gideon, are you saying that provided sufficient justification to slaughter anyone who remained? This isn't war; it's murder. The blowback from this will be swift and terrible.
