Hizbullah offers to spare civilians if Israeli military does the same
By Leila Hatoum
Daily Star staff
Friday, August 04, 2006

BEIRUT: Hizbullah's leader offered Thursday to stop pounding Israel's "northern settlements" if the Jewish state refrained from bombarding Lebanon's "cities and civilians." Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah also issued a warning, however, in a televised speech: "Let my words be clear, any attack on Lebanon's capital, Beirut, will result in Hizbullah bombarding the Zionist entity's capital, Tel Aviv."

In an almost immediate response aired on Israeli public television, a senior military official said Israel would destroy all of Lebanon's infrastructure if Tel Aviv were hit.

"We are ready to keep the whole thing restricted to a military fight with the Israeli Army," Nasrallah said, "on the ground, fighters to fighters."

But Israel dropped leaflets over the southern suburb of Beirut, warning residents of Bir al-Abed, Hay Madi and Al-Ruweiss to evacuate their homes.

2. I can hardly believe the world is watching this go on.
The blowback is going to go on for years. Even if Israel win the war it is going to lose and Lebanon will be as bad off as Iraq. Bombed into the stone age. It has become a sin what our weapons are doing to this world. We should be in shame to have out fitted half they world with our killing stuff. Children blow up and with out food, it is a sin.

4. It sounds like that is what Hizbollah is proposing.
Looks like the ball is in Israel's court now. If they end up following through on their threat to destroy Lebanon, they may end up effectively destroying themselves in the bargain.
