11. I think what happened is that Israel didn't like the outcome of
the election in Gaza -- Palestinians elected Hamas.

So waiting for a reason to invade Gaza and deal with Hamas a gang attacked an Israeli military outpost and kidnapped an Israeli soldier. This was the excuse that the new Israelie Prime Minister needed to deal with Hamas.

So while Gaza endures collective punishment -- "Hezbollah seizes Israel soldiers"

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/5171616.stm


Hezbollah is demanding the release of Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the release of Israel soldiers.

for a review of just who the Hezbollah are -- see:

So now Israel according to the newest BBC report has blockaded Lebanon's seaport and airport.

More collective punishment??

Oh and meanwhile -- Michael Jackson is being sued by his ex-wife -- seems he owns her money.
