Category Image Targeting the UN

Israeli soldiers were kidnapped by Hezbollah. Claims that the UN looked on and did nothing are slanderous lies. In fact the UN didn't act passively to that attack. They were quite active in filming the kidnapping. The UN then, of course, lied about even knowing about the crime.

Now this strange person from some third world dirt-hole country that dresses nicely and claims leadership of the UN wants to punish Israel for killing two UN observers at the very post where they filmed this crime. He's even made statements claiming he will send an armed force to stop the war. I'm not sure where he got this sudden power from, I seem to remember the UN having to vote on things before acting.

Israel's modus operandi has been to always hit enemies harder than they have been hit. I think it is completely consistent with their past behavior for them to drop a few artillery shells on a UN post that is actively used to support attacks on them. I think Israel is wise to deny that they did it on purpose, just as the US denies that it purposefully bombed the Chinese embassy in the Balkans.

But I don't for a second believe either claim. Nor am I sympathetic to cries of objection to those attacks.
