According to an A.P. report, the U.N. humanitarian chief, returing from a visit to Beirut, accused Hizbullah on Monday of "cowardly blending" among Lebanese civilians and causing the deaths of hundreds.
"Consistently, from the Hizbullah heartland, my message was that Hizbullah must stop this cowardly blending ... among women and children," Egeland said, shortly before departing for Israel. "I heard they were proud because they lost very few fighters and that it was the civilians bearing the brunt of this. I don't think anyone should be proud of having many more children and women dead than armed men."
Yo, you got that right!
Now could you please pass along the same message to Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the PPR, the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade (and however many other new ones have sprung up)? Could you tell them not to build their bombs and store their weapons in the same houses where their wives and children live and play? Let them know that if their family members are ok with this, that their neighbors in the houses and apartments around them really don't appreciate it. They don't appreciate it when the militants come and shoot their rockets from the middle of suburban neighborhoods. Nor do they appreciate it when masked militants ambush IDF forces on streets crowded with civilians.
Then, could you tell the civilians to please use a few braincells and not to rush up to a car that has been targeted, for instance, by the IDF and is full of rockets that will explode any second.
