Why is it that the news is all about destruction in Lebanon and nothing about destruction in Israel?

Israel is always held to a higher standard, and the knee-jerk reaction is to always blame the victim. Israel has been trying to call attention to Hezbollah terrorists since 1979. The international community has agreed to control them and begrudgingly allotted 2000 troops for the effort. It seems to take a sledgehammer between the eyes to make the international community wake up to the dangers of Hezbollah. Even now when they boast of their power and influence, not one nation has formally commited troops to a multi-national peacekeeping force. Will it take another sledgehammer to make them realize Israel doesn't plan to wait another 12 months for the measly 15000 troops promised? Israel is expected to trust the Lebanese troops to protect them from Hezbollah. LOL

When you start a war (yes a war) the person is looked upon as
evil, etc. We forget that Israel stayed in lebanon for 18 years, would you like to see the USA occupied for 18 years.Would we be happy to have Russia supply North Korea with weapons of
mass destruction. The bunker buster bombs that Israel used on the lebanese people , can you guess where they came from-you
guessed it right the good old USA. If I were you I would go study
history from B.C. to 2006.In return I will pose a question for you to think about. how old do you think the country of Israel is, MickeySource(s): "history"

Because it is politically correct and standard practice to blame Israel for everything and report the poor Muslims as perpetual victims. Don't you know that Hezbollah was just sitting around doing good deeds in Lebanon, performing waste disposal services and treating the sick in hospitals when the evil Jews invaded their land and killed a bunch of babies for no reason whatsoever.
Even liberal Jews have taken up the cause of hating Jews. I guess westerners who hate the Jews don't realize that Islamic fascists want to kill them too.

Yeah, and the media is all over Hezbollah and Lebanon cleaning up the destruction and repairing roads, etc. I never see that kind of coverage of the clean-up and rebuilding going on EVERY DAY in Iraq. Guess, it doesn't suit their agenda.

Destruction in israel: some discrete walls in some houses in some cities. some cars in the streets . one factory. 20to 30 citizens killed.
In Lebanon : The whole Infrastructure is destroyed+1000000 homeless +1200 killed + Economic disaster

THATS BECAUSE....THE SMART BOMBS AND SCATTER BOMBS ARE DOING MORE DAMAGE THAN THE SMALL HIGHLY INACCURATE ROCKETS FIRED BY THE HEZBOLLAH. THE ROCKETS USED BY HEZBOLLAH ARE FOR INTIMIDATING THE GOVERNMENT OF ISRAEL....WHILE THE BOMBS USED BY ISRAEL...ARE ACTUALLY KILLING DOZENS OF CIVILIANS EVERY DAY>!
