    Lebanon took in 300,000 Palestinian refugees after the 1948 and 1967 Arab Israeli wars. the Palestinians tried to overthrow the government. Syria helped end the civil war driving the Palestinians to south Lebanon. their attacks on Israel led to the occupation of south Lebanon by Israel.Israel left Lebanon in 2001. the Palestinians in Gaza attacked Israel so the Palestinians in Lebanon joined in the fight. the short version is, they hate each other.

    To see Israel as an innocent attempting to live peacefully in a neighbourhood of thugs requires intellectual dishonesty and to claim that the Israelis had their backs to the wall and were forced into the destruction, measured beyond all proportion, of property and human beings in Lebanon and Gaza requires the moral lassitude inherent in imperial civilization.

    Hezbollah did not exist before the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon. The culprit then was the PLO, and then, as now, Israeli self-defence was the excuse behind a cynical attempt to destroy Palestinian nationalism and secure land for annexation in the West Bank.

    Recently, there were two daring attacks against military targets and Israeli soldiers were captured by Hamas and Hezbollah. These attacks happened because Israel and its patron refused to accept the results of the Palestinian election.

    Of course, before Hamas was elected, there was simply no partner for peace. Translation: There is no Palestinian leadership that will accept the injustice the Israelis want to impose.

    Source(s): Israel's patron is the US

    excessive hatred...all our troubles all over this small planet are symptoms of this horrible disease..GREED..sometimes although the Jewish people are sweet and talk of bees and honey and cities with condos apartments etc. and the promised land where we all are rewarded in heaven, we all know money is the answer to everything, and there is no heaven like the Beatles say, and those cities and hives of activity are just the great sponge from deep space sucking the life out of everyone, like sponge bob ,taking and taking into all the little compartments, swelling up, until it multiplies..taking ...and everyone knows from the start

    Greed is a disease..and fairness suggests the whole lot of them need healing.
