Are Israelis wrong for fighting Lebanon?
Lebanese, besides the Christians, are wack. They attack Israel yet there are still people that think its justified to use terrorism, just because they are Jews. Civilians fight the wars there and Israel wants peace. They will never get it because of anti-semetic Islamics. To me, and Im not Jewish, it seems like they are oppressed all the time because people dont like their religion or race (or stereotype). Get over it. Everyone belongs to a stereotype, it doesnt mean we should kill them all. If this was happeneing to the US with Mexico, we would all think differently. Israel has a right to the land, esepecially after the Holocaust. Lets give our land back as well while we are at it. There IS NO excuse for terrorists killing innocents, to what? prove a point? BS.
Its funny when they say Israel just plopped on Palestinians land.... lets take a look at the NATIVE AMERICANS. Genocide.
Whoever is the most intelligent will get the points, racism, of course is just ignorance.

No They have every right and duty to fight in Lebanon. I wish I could say I wrote the following but it was written by a user named Iassc * a couple of weeks ago. I don't think he will mind me passing it along.
Israel has been bombarded by Hezbollah terrorist rockets and gunfire for years. They have the right to defend themselves. Hezbollah terrorists put the civilians out as shields then parade around their dead bodies for the cameras for propaganda purposes. I think people believe that if Hezbollah gained Israel’s territory that they would be happy and all the terrorist conflict would end there. I know this is not the case. Terrorist Muslims hide behind a cloak of religion whilst they seek to gain ultimate world power.
The Koran states that Allah cannot return until the world is cleansed of all infidels (anyone who does not believe in Allah).You start to get a understanding of why they hate the rest of the non-Muslim world when you read the tenants in the Koran and the Hadiths.I read more militant rhetoric in the Koran and Hadiths than I ever heard or read in my eight years active duty in the Army. These Muslim holy books call for them to do all that you have seen the terrorists doing in the last 50 years. It should not be a surprise to anyone that they are doing what they’re bible and Muslim clerics tell them to. Israel is just a speed bump and the rest of the world is the mission. If you don’t believe that the average Muslim agrees with the terrorist’s actions then explain to me why they were dancing in the streets after 9/11.Good day to all of you, and may our future generations never have to endure the scourge of religious tyranny in the future.

We are Allah’s helpers and the viziers of His Messenger. We fight people until they believe in Allah. He who believes in Allah and His Messenger has protected his life and possessions from us. As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in the Cause of Allah. Killing him is a small matter to us.”
Qur’an:48:16“Say (Muhammad) to the wandering desert Arabs who lagged behind: ‘You shall be invited to fight against a people given to war with mighty prowess.

Qur’an:9:19“Do you make the giving of drink to pilgrims, or the maintenance of the Mosque, equal to those who fight in the Cause of Allah? They are not comparable in the sight of Allah.

Muslim:C9B1N29“Command For Fighting Against People So Long As They Do Not Profess That There Is No Ilah (God) But Allah And Muhammad Is His Messenger: When the Messenger breathed his last and Bakr was appointed Caliph, many Arabs chose to become apostates [rejected Islam]. Abu Bakr said: ‘I will definitely fight against anyone who stops paying the Zakat tax, for it is an obligation. I will fight against them even to secure the cord used for hobbling the feet of a camel which they used to pay if they withhold it now.’ Allah had justified fighting against those who refused to pay Zakat.”
Muslim:C9B1N33“The Prophet said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and they establish prostration prayer, and pay Zakat. If they do it, their blood and property are protected.’”
Muslim:C10B1N176“Muhammad (may peace be upon him) sent us in a raiding party. We raided Huraqat in the morning. I caught hold of a man and he said: ‘There is no god but Allah,’ but I attacked him with a spear anyway. It once occurred to me that I should ask the Apostle about this. The Messenger said: ‘Did he profess “There is no god but Allah,” and even then you killed him?’ I said: ‘He made a profession out of the fear of the weapon I was threatening him with.’ The Prophet said: ‘Did you tear out his heart in order to find out whether it had professed truly or not?’”

Muslim:C34B20N4652-3“The Merit Of Jihad And Of Keeping Vigilance Over The Enemy: A man came to the Holy Prophet and said: ‘Who is the best of men?’ He replied: ‘A man who fights staking his life and spending his wealth in Allah’s Cause.’”
Muslim:C42B20N4684“A desert Arab came to the Prophet and said: ‘Messenger, one man fights for the spoils of war; another fights that he may be remembered, and one fights that he may see his (high) position (achieved as a result of his valor in fighting). Which of these is fighting in the Cause of Allah?’ The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Who fights so that the word of Allah is exalted is fighting in the Way of Allah.’”

Qur’an:2:217“They question you concerning fighting in the sacred month. Say: ‘Fighting therein is a grave (matter); but to prevent access to Allah, to deny Him, to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque, to expel its members, and polytheism are worse than slaughter. Nor will they cease fighting you until they make you renegades from your religion. If any of you turn back and die in unbelief, your works will be lost and you will go to Hell.

Qur’an:61:2“O Muslims, why say one thing and do another? Grievously odious and hateful is it in the sight of Allah that you say that which you do not. Truly Allah loves those who fight in His Cause in a battle array, as if they were a solid cemented structure.”

Qur’an:3:146“How many prophets fought in Allah’s Cause? With them (fought) myriads of godly men who were slain. They never lost heart if they met with disaster in Allah’s Cause, nor did they weaken nor give in. Allah loves those who are firm and steadfast [warriors].”

You ran off precipitately, climbing up the high hill without even casting a side glance at anyone, while the Messenger in your rear is calling you from your rear, urging you to fight.

Qur’an:4:77“Have you not seen those to whom it was said: Withhold from fighting, perform the prayer and pay the zakat. But when orders for fighting were issued, a party of them feared men as they ought to have feared Allah. They say: ‘Our Lord, why have You ordained fighting for us, why have You made war compulsory?’”
Qur’an:4:78“Wherever you are, death will find you, even if you are in towers strong and high! So what is wrong with these people, that they fail to understand these simple words?”
Qur’an:4:84“Then fight (Muhammad) in Allah’s Cause. Incite the believers to fight with you.”
Qur’an:4:94“Believers, when you go abroad to fight wars in Allah’s Cause, investigate carefully, and say not to anyone who greets you: ‘You are not a believer!’ Coveting the chance profits of this life (so that you may despoil him). With Allah are plenteous spoils and booty.”
Qur’an:4:95“Not equal are believers who sit home and receive no hurt and those who fight in Allah’s Cause with their wealth and lives. Allah has granted a grade higher to those who fight with their possessions and bodies to those who sit home. Those who fight He has distinguished with a special reward.”
Qur’an:4:100“He who leaves his home in Allah’s Cause finds abundant resources and many a refuge. Should he die as a refugee for Allah and His Messenger His reward becomes due and sure with Allah. When you travel through the earth there is no blame on you if you curtail your worship for fear unbelievers may attack you. In truth the disbelievers are your enemy.”
Qur’an:4:102“When you (Prophet) lead them in prayer, let some stand with you, taking their arms with them. When they finish their prostrations, let them take positions in the rear. And let others who have not yet prayed come—taking all precaution, and bearing arms. The Infidels wish, if you were negligent of your arms, to assault you in a rush. But there is no blame on you if you put away your arms because of the inconvenience of rain or because you are ill; but take precaution. For the Unbelieving Infidels Allah hath prepared a humiliating punishment.”
Qur’an:4:104“And do not relent in pursuing the enemy.”

Correction, the Israelis are not fighting Lebanon, they are fighting Hizballah IN Lebanon. This is a distinction which I think is important and many people miss.
Hizballah, though it has members in the Lebanese parliament, are not the official representatives of Lebanon nor to they consist of their army.
In fact, Hizballah has long controled southern Lebanon to the point where the Lebanese army was to scared to even enter that area and assert control as is their right. I wouldn't be surprised if they are privately routing for Israel. I know for sure several Lebanese organizations, who have a hatred for Hizballah, have come out in support of Israel.
So, to answer your question, no, the Israelis are not wrong in fighting Hizballah since that organization presents a direct threat to Israel.

First of all the Israel army is not at war with Lebanon,they are fighting Hezbollah a Islamic terrorist group that has taken and been provided shelter in Lebanon.
Israel has every right to defend herself and the continued fight for the right to exist.
There was no genocide of the American Indians,prof of that is in the number of Native Americans alive and well all over this country.And the many that were on reservations after the so called war.
There is no correlation between Hezbollah
attack on Israel and settlers trying to carve a life out in this country in our formative years and later we fought and killed and they fought and killed.We won and its over,we try to live in harmony as one nation.
I support Israels war on its enemy's and I support our military ,I do not support the war in Iraq.

Israel is not fighting Lebanon. They are fighting Hezbollah, a terrorist group that has effectively taken over southern Lebanon.
And they need to keep fighting, until Hezbollah is stopped once and for all. Anything less is a win for the terrorist. I know that phrase is badly overused, but this is one of the few times that it actually applies.
Hezbollah is going to keep attacking Israel until they are stopped. Israel asked the Lebanese government to stop them, long before Israeli troops crossed the border. The UN even told Lebanon to stop Hezbollah, several times over the past few decades. The Lebanese government has been either unwilling or unable to control the terrorist organization that controls so much of their countryside.
So Israel had no choice but to respond and to defend itself. And that means pursuing Hezbollah wherever they hide, until Hezbollah is stopped once and for all.

Israel is fighting Hezbollah to stop attacks on their citizens although it does seem they are clobbering Lebanon and its infrastructure a bit too much. They do really want to create a humanitarian crisis to get Lebanon to get rid of the Hezbollah terrorists.
This whole problem with the Palistinians really has to be delt with and now. The middle east has long been a training ground for terrorists and this needs to be addressed by the World community.

Hezbollah fighters kidnapped two Israeli soldiers, when Israeli soldiers went to get them they were met with military style tactics and weapons. The Lebanese police didn’t arrest the kidnappers and they didn’t evacuate the citizens from a danger zone.
The Israelis were forced to try and get their soldiers back. When Israeli soldiers attempted this Hezbollah fighters used rockets and automatic weapons to keep the kidnapped soldiers. Several Israeli soldiers were killed in the attempt.
The wide spread fighting with the Hezbollah fighters makes them accessories to kidnapping and guilty of murder. The vast numbers of fighters should make this organized crime.
With the failure of the Lebanese police at both levels, the Israelis must do what is required to get their people returned. Military style tactics require military action to get this done. With the failure of the Lebanese police to get their people to safety, Israel can’t allow the citizens to deter them from bringing the criminals to justice.
Organized crime of this magnitude can’t be allowed to escape punishment. The Israelis must use any and all methods to bring organized crime to justice, the numbers of criminals and the firepower they have makes military action of any level to get the job done necessary. Hezbollah has a member holding the position of Speaker of the Parliament an elected position voted on by the Parliament. This must therefore be considered as a government sponsored action and any action by Israel needed to bring justice is warranted.
Hezbollah should have caught the kidnappers and sentenced them to justice. The failure of Hezbollah to capture the kidnappers and the killing of Israelis makes all the Hezbollah fighters accessories to kidnapping and guilty of murder. The shear level of the numbers of criminals, should have brought outside aide to Israel in the suppression of the Hezbollah organized crime criminals.
The failure of the worlds leaders is to their eternal shame, and that the whole world shall have to bear. Our world leaders have become cowards and not able to deal with a large organized crime syndicate. The Israelis are left to do what ever is required to bring all the criminals to justice.
Had this accrued in the US and Hezbollah hid in a neighborhood, then used rockets and automatic weapons on the same scale. The US military would level all the buildings occupied by Hezbollah and bring down the buildings with the criminals inside. As soon as the police had evacuated the citizens who were in danger.
Israel is doing no different, the law is the law and the organized crime syndicate known as Hezbollah must be brought to justice, no matter the cost. The law is clear and must be enforced.

Israel is fighting Hezzbollah not Lebanon. However, Lebanon's government as well as many of it's people have allowed this group to imbed themselves in amongst them. Israel is justified in defending it's land and it's people since they were attacked first.

You claim racism is ignorance, however in a previous post, you make no bones that you believe cops to be a "race" of their own and openly and proudly show your hatred to them. Thereby, you are a self proclaimed racist. And as such, you are yourself, ignorant, as your statement above shows.

in my opinion israel is totally wrong in fighting lebanon. ok we all know wat happened in holocaust but that doesnt mean they shud take over the world becuz poor jews were killed by hitler. if thats the case, shudnt palestinians get some land too since innocent palestinians r killed everyday by israelis??? wat abt lebanese? israel is targeting civilians on purpose. as u said it "There IS NO excuse for terrorists killing innocents, to what? prove a point? BS." yes it is BS becuz israel is trying to prove a point, its trying to prove to the world that it exists (since its existence was illegal). israelis r still trying to "make sense" of the world, they r trying to prove to themselves that they r "strong". n in their minds "strength" means killing innocent becuz hitler was "strong" cuz he killed innocent ppl.
