Yesterday Huffington Post blogger Steve Clemons published a story in which Jordan's King Abdullah said that another war between Israel, Lebanon and Hezbollah was...well, imminent. I personally don't feel like the King is correct, as there is no sign of another conflict. Hezbollah is now part of Lebanon's government, and so Lebanon would have much to lose from another war. Some of the talkbackers mentioned a transfer of SCUD missiles from Iran to Lebanon, but this has yet to be proven.
Anyway, this brought out a lot of responses from the Huffington Post. The comments reflected a broader range of opinions than what we are used to seeing, but even so a decent amount of them blamed Israel for a war that hasn't even begun yet. You can see for yourself on the link below. The fully moderated thread has about 1300 comments.
.they're a sovereign nation, in other words, Palestinians are on their own! But when it comes to occupation, checkpoints, deportation, ethnic cleansing, freedom of movement, borders and such....Israel exerts complete sovereignty
"Israel's history has been nothing but war after war in defense "
Wrong - most of those wars were started by Israel. Odd isn't it, how many wars Israel starts in such a short period of time - one would say they love to kill other people. Ironic, as without the Muslims, there would be no Jews in Jerusalem. Nice way to pay back your benefactors.
Yes, keep repeating your Israeli-style lies of entitlement, greed and aggression. The world is long since sick of them.
You mean turn their backs as Israel burns Lebanese children alive with white phosphorous, like they did Palestinian children?
