Det är i alla fall journalisten Jennifer Griffins slutsats i sin rapport för FoxNews. Se hennes redogörelse här. Om hon har rätt, då är det uppenbart att Israel har svara extremt oproportioneligt. Och apropå Israels ”oproportionella” svar, så Tammy Bruce fann en intressant kolumn av Ben Stein, där han skriver:
So, now I see that some commentators are saying that Israel’s bombing of Lebanese Hezbollah strong points and neighborhoods is ”disproportionate.” The Israeli campaign, so this story goes, is bullying and terrorizing the Lebanese populace, and this is (so the argument goes) typical Israeli thug behavior.
Let’s see. In World War II, the Germans bombed exactly no United States cities or towns. We bombed the hell out of them, day and night, for more than two years, including helping the British with firebombing Dresden, one of the most appalling civilian killings by a free people of all time.
Was it disproportionate? Well, no. The Nazis had bombed our allies, the British, in terror raids for years. They had started a world war. They had created a genocide unspeakable in human history. So, yes, there was horrible killing, but is anyone now saying it was disproportionate? Maybe a few, but not many.
