Don't let them fool you - ISRAEL STARTED IT
Ever since the bloody carnage in Lebanon started, the mainstream media has echoed Israel's self-righteous indignation about how they're merely defending themselves - "Israeli sovereignty was violated" when Hizbullah "kidnapped" their soldiers from "across the border."
What they conveniently reverse is that Hizbullah confronted Israeli troops on the LEBANESE SIDE OF BORDER.
It all started on July 12 when Israel troops were ambushed on LEBANON'S SIDE OF THE BORDER with Israel. Hezbollah, which commands the Lebanese south, immediately seized on their crossing. They arrested two Israeli soldiers, killed eight Israelis and wounded over 20 in attacks inside Israeli territory. [AsiaTimes.com]

Even Israeli News reported it on the 12th, contemporaneously with the incident.
The Hizbullah said its operatives destroyed an Israeli tank attempting to cross the border into Lebanon.

"If somebody wants to kill you and you use a deception to save your life, it's not immoral."
