Israel softens conditions for cease-fire

AP
Excerpt JERUSALEM – Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Monday that the fighting in Lebanon would end when two Israeli soldiers were freed, rocket attacks stopped and the Lebanese army deployed along the border. But he appeared to scale back from previous demands for Hezbollah to be dismantled. Delivering an impassioned speech to Israel’s parliament after six days of fierce fighting, Olmert said Israel would have no mercy on militants who attacked its cities with rockets.

Israel’s path to total war


Asia Times
Excerpt: One of the most malignant aspects of the new chapter in the Arab-Israeli conflict is the myth of Israel as the assaulted party, lavishly propagated by the White House and the infinite pro-Israel pundits in the US media, including the editors of the New York Times, who have labeled Israel’s blatant aggression against the nation of Lebanon as “legally and morally justified”.

Never mind that the rest of the world, including the European Union, does not share this perception of who is mainly at fault for the deadly cycle of violence that has gripped the Middle East again. The irony is that one can detect greater voices of dissent and opposition to Israel’s massive, disproportionate response to the token kidnapping of a few of its soldiers than is the case in the “pluralistic” US media, nowadays sheepishly toeing the official line.

Hezbollah rejects ceasefire with Israel

Khaleej Times
Excerpt:BEIRUT – Hezbollah on Monday rejected a ceasefire on terms dictated by Israel, with a senior member of the Lebanese Shiite militia rejecting the conditions set by the Jewish state.

“We accept no conditions for a ceasefire, whatever the pressure,” Abdullah Kasir, a member of Hezbollah’s central committee, told AFP.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Friday said a ceasefire would only be considered on three conditions: that Hezbollah release two captured Israeli soldiers, the firing of Hezbollah rockets on Israeli towns cease, and that the militia be disarmed in line with a UN resolution.

    Reject a ceasefire……I just can’t believe Hezbollah would do something like that!!

    Are we sure Isreali didn’t kidnap it’s own soldiers as an excuse to blow up Lebanon??

    I am joking of course so please don’t answer that.

    Well, if wasn’t over these two soldiers, it would be over something else. The epitome of instability!

    Isreal should push the people from the west bank back over the river into historic palestine. And clear the gaza strip and put those people back in eastern Jordan ( historic Palestine ) and just defend there borders.

    A two state solution will never work and never happen. If it were not for Arafat palestinians would still be in eastern Jordan enjoying palestine. All the arab nations have turned there backs on the palestinian people because of there lust for land that does not belong to them.

    They had a home and Arafat screwed that up when he tryed to kill the King of Jordan. His people have suffered ever since that very dumb idea!

    You need to re-energize your mind with accurate history. Your post shows that you need help with the facts. Let me suggest that you read a few books:

    “Flowers of Galilee” by Israel Shamir (former IDF paratrooper)
    “The Questions of Palestine” by Edward Said
    “Israel’s Fateful Hour” by Yehoshafat Harkabi (former Chief of Israeli Intelligence)

    Let’s get you on the right track of history.

    Or some more stuff I pulled from a google search.

    September 1970 is known as the Black September in Arab history and sometimes is referred to as the “era of regrettable events”. It was a month when Hashemite King Hussein of Jordan moved to quash an attempt by Palestinian organizations to overthrow his monarchy. The violence resulted in heavy civilian Palestinian casualties. Armed conflict lasted until July 1971 with the expulsion of the PLO and thousands of Palestinians to Lebanon.

    And Arafat was the leader of the PLO at the time so kinda his fault.
