Call for Hezbollah

I call hezbollah to end the rocket launching into Israel as of this minute.

If these rockets were targeted at the Israeli army, very well. That would be a legitimate defence right now.

But what use is it to launch these rockets haphazardly at the civilian populations of Northern Israel? Is it to scare them into stopping the war? Do you know that Haifa is one of the most pro-peace cities in Israel? These rockets land blindly. Those that don't kill innocent civilians land in empty fields or kill a cow.

Can't you see that this only makes the IDF's argument stronger?
How can we cheer for innocent Israeli deaths and then ask the world to mourn ours?

I'm not saying we should be passive. Fight the IDF to the death.
But don't do what you know is wrong just because it is being done to you.

Thank you. As an Israeli I appreciate your call very much. I think this would lead immediately to Israel stopping bombing or to very large public pressure to stop bombing.

Unfortunately the raison d'etre of the arms of the Hiz is to defend Lebanon against Israel. If they don't use the rockets, they will have to disarm because they would have admitted that the rockets are useless.

Thanks again and let's all hope this ends soon.

Great post. I join my voice to yours.

May I add that such acts are the expression of the ideologic existence of Hezballah?Just take a look at the "promotions" of Manar TV and you will understand what I mean.

I admire your plea, but you mean you expect the "terrorists" to behave better than the "moral" army ?

Thank you Ramzi - It must take great courage to see through your pain and admit the Lebanese role in the violence. I suspect that if those rockets were not being fired at Israeli civilians, the Israeli army would have left Lebanon long ago.
I wish more Lebanese blogs would follow your lead.

As an Israeli sufferring from this war, I fully support the battle to destroy the Hezbolla's missiles. Nevertheless, Ramzi, I would like to follow your lead, and call on to my own country's army: stop ignoring the pain of the innocent Lebanese!

To Anonymous and Israeli blogger: I don't think you read the whole post: "Fight the IDF to death"...Deep down in your hearts, do you think that your government would stop it's aggression on innocent civilians if Hizbollah stopped the rockets????? I think not. 2 words: disproportiate killing (I am also against the killing of Israeli civilians but that's not the point, the point is YOU MUST STOP GIVIING EXCUSES TO YOUR BRUTAL AGGRESSION ON LEBANESE CIVILIANS, HOMES, ROADS, INFRASTRUCTURE AND CALL A CEASE FIRE!)

Lama,

I did read the post to its end - including the "fight IDF to the death" part. My problem is not with Lebanese fighting the IDF. My problem is with the attacks on our civilian population. If they weren't killing our civilians, the IDF wouldn't be there, and they wouldn't have to fight the IDF.

I heard the Israeli Defence Minister speak on the radio yesterday. I understood that one of his goals is to deter all our surrounding countries from repeating Hizballa's actions. Another goal is to push Hizballa away from our border.

I believe that if Hizballa stops firing rockets at Israeli civilians, the Israeli government will have no choice but to declare victory and stop this operation. They will still need to keep Hizballa away from our border somehow - and that will only be possible with international assistance.

It is very sad that the people of Lebanon - people like Ramzi - are victims of the situation. Life is not fair. All around the world people are sufferring from living in corrupt societies. Many Lebanese had a dream of building a modern society that respects human rights. They still haven't realized this dream. They thought they did, but Hizballa took advantage of them. They are paying a very dear price for not realizing this danger - or at least for not being able to do anything about it. The Israelis are too.

I hope the Lebanese do not lose their dream - and I hope they will fight to achieve it with the same passion displayed in Ramzi's call to fight the IDF.

So long as you fight to free Samir Kunter, forget about your moral standing because you're already wading in sewage.
