Donate Now and Unite!

[To understand the horror of the conflict please go to this website: http://fromisraeltolebanon.info/]

Lebanese immigrants in the UK are getting together under one message: stop the war.
Shiites, Druzes, Armenians, Sunnis and Christians are united in the face of horror and destruction.
Meetings have been held at the embassy in London and Lebanese from all walks of life are ready to help in the humanitarian effort.
An Israeli even sent money to the account set up by the Lebanese community in Britain.

There are 500,000 refugees, more than 400 dead, 1,000 wounded and billions of dollars of losses to the economy. Lebanon needs are the world's help and you can donate to the following organizations:
The Red Cross
UNICEF
Relief Lebanon

It is time for the Lebanese to be one and to fight our sectarian impulses.
Hezbollah and its weapons are a question for the Lebanese to solve peacefully and democratically.
The Israeli strategy is to push the Lebanese to fight its war and finish off Hezbollah. Israel needs a new civil war in Lebanon but we will not succumb to its conspiracy.
Even if its actions are unilateral and influenced by Iran and Syria, Hezbollah is a Lebanese party with over one million supporters in our country. And a civil war is worse than a thousand Israeli invasions or air strikes.
Israel is not fighting Hezbollah, it is killing our children and terminating our nation's economic future.
National unity is essential and we have to face this tragedy united not politically but humanely.

I send thoughts of peace and identification with the Lebanese nation from the heart of Tel Aviv. I belive in human solidarity above all religions. I reach out to my brothers in Beirut being bombarded in my name. I also reach out to my brothers being bombarded in northern Israel, and my question is - in who's name are those bombs falling on Israel? Surely not in your name.

"Hezbollah and its weapons are a question for the Lebanese to solve peacefully and democratically."

These are words of an aware, thinking man. I ask you - How can you have a democratic dialog with a fascist group? Why should this dialog affect your neighbouring country?

I ask my country - Why kill innocent civillians in Lebanon? Why distruct an intire country in my name?

I have many questions. Can there be any answers in the name of solidarity?

Let them go to Hezbollah for assistance. The Iranians have a lot of money. They started it. It's what they get for invading a neighboring country. The people might be better served telling Hezbollah to give the soldiers back and knock it off with the missiles.

You say "Hezbollah and its weapons are a question for the Lebanese to solve peacefully and democratically. " Isn't it a bit late? Haven't you had a few years to do it, while rockets kept on falling in northern Israel by a part of your government, who's published ideology is the destruction of Israel? So who exactly do you want Israel to talk with? The government who says it has no power? HA who tells Israel Drop Dead and I'll help you with a few thousand rockets? C'mon, help yourselves - and I believe also the Israelis - by coming up with a credible solution. From where I stand, I believe that Isrealis are serious: they're not going to accept a return to the previous situation...

that's it? you are out of lebanon - not feeling the threat anymore, so you start talking like a HA?
If what you are saying is right - then what is the problem with Israel - I guess Israel SHOULD fight Lebanon, since HA is doing it in the name and with the support of the lebanon people.

Amazing what hate from birth does to people.

Israel has been at war with its neighbours for as long as I can remember. So even in the best case scenario, there will be skirmishes and border incidents from hot-heads for the next decade. You're going to have to live with that. But Israel has again shown that it can't do anything without over-doing it. Were any int'l conferences called? What sort of negotiations were held to deal with the crisis? Oh right, none. Maybe just as well. It saves us any further shows of hypocrisy. I see Ms Rice is coming over to deal with the crisis without even bothering to talk with Lebanon. That says it all, really, doesn't it? Who cares what the Lebanese think? Anyway, Rice has nothing to offer the debate. Except, that is, for a few precision missiles in her Chanel handbag. If nothing else, she says as she paints her nails, this little skirmish will keep the attention off the fiasco in Iraq for a few weeks.

Demolishing Lebanon and exacting revenge on its civil infrastructure will not advance peace - this shalom business we keep hearing about. Lebanon had a chance to become a stable economy and political structure given time. If ever two countries well well matched geographically and socially, it could have been Lebanon and Israel. Yes, Hezbollah was voted into a degree of power in a democratic election. That's the price you pay for the previous wars. But Lebanon wasn't given time. I don't know what weird plan Slobodan Elmert and Rumsfeld have cooked up. I suppose we'll find out soon enough. But there are people in the world that are totally unimpressed by the self-righteous bleatings of a mighty military power crushing the population of a largely defenceless new country.

I was going to add, "Amazing what arrogance and hypocrisy from birth does to people". But why stoop that low? Why sit here playing games when ordinary people are dying under Israeli bombs signed by 12 year-old girls? That is the mentality we're dealing with.

Outsider: Exactly how would you suggest that Israel negotiate with Hezbolla? That's right it's impossible. Hezbolla intends to fight until the last drop of Lebanese blood.

There's a very short list of Arab countries who live peacefully. There's one thing in common with them. They do not tolerate or support terrorist organizations on their soil. At this point in time, Lebanon is not one of those Countries and from all appearances Lebanon does not have the will or desire to change it.

The civilized nations of the World are finally coming to the conclusion that these Islamic death cults MUST be stopped.

"Israel is not fighting Hezbollah, it is killing our children and terminating our nation's economic future."

It is a shame you think this way. From your previous posts, I thought your perspective of the conflict was rational. Now it seems that hatred and anger begin to stream in your veins towards your heart.

Open your mind and see things for what they really are. Israel fights Hezbollah and tries to avoid civilian casualties.

Have you read the interview with an Israeli pilots? Do you know that the Israeli jets drop leaflets to warn civilians? Do you know that Hezbollah hides behind civilians? Do you know that Israel asked US to supply it with precision-guided bombs and the US shipment is now on its way to Israel.

Once Hezbollah is out of the way, Lebanon and Israel could live side by side in peace. Teach your children to love your Israeli neighbors, teach them the truth, don't teach your children to hate.

Do you really think that had the Israeli wanted to kill civilians you'd have a few hundred dead after so much bombing?

And the other side: is there any non-civialian target for HA's rockets?

we should thank 500,000 Lebanes who have moved away and now Israel can destory the country without the need to be worried about the number of people getting killed. I am sure soon we will hear: those who didn't go away (maybe we should say they could not go anywher since most of the roads were being hit and destroyed, nevermind the transport and communication and etc) wanted to die instead of Hezbullah (which israel fail to target) and they are same as Hezbullah and won't count as civilians. (these days you see any kind of justification supported and faivoured by Israilis as long as it ends in killing people). oh, abd never mind that apart from Hezbulah, Lebanon defence minister, BBC,CCN and whoever which is looking it from outside and inside south Lebanon said only 1% of Huzbullah has been hit.

Even that you should not be worried about civilians and manily childeren since Israel attacks are so peacefull and precise, but to give you even more assurance that IDF is doing its best, they have asked for more bumbes, which can target better (thanks to US) which only go after Hezbullah. This new bombs, before explosion, they will take a look at the victim's face and check against the wanted list prepared by Israel intelligence services and if the face does not match any of the faces in that list the bomb will diss arm itself. It means you don't need to be frighten.

After this war, when Lebanon is destoryed and the only thing left will be Hezbullah and some people with so much Hate and Nothing to live with but some thousan rockets, we all can celebarate the hummanity and the peace which we will enjoy for rest of our lives.

I say after this war, they should give nobel prise to the leaders of Hezbullah, Israel, Iran, Syria and of course US for giving us such a opportunity to excercis our human rights and showed how much we care. For giving us the Oportunity to enjoy a real peace.

Dear Israelis,

You are not the only people to suffer from the savagery of terrorism. But France didn't invade Algeria after the metro bombings. Spain didn't invade Morocco after the train bombings. London didn't even invade Iran after shots were fired at police from their London embassy, nor did Britain bomb Shannon or Dublin airport after their soldiers were targetted in Northern Ireland. And remember, members of Sinn Fein were even elected to London (remember when the IRA took a mortar shot at 10 Downing St?)! Resolving this sort of situation requires a political process and men of bravery on both sides.

You share with America's infantile president a belief that by throwing bombs over the fence you can defeat a para-military organisation when experience shows that every bomb equals a volunteer for the organisation that is being targetted. And might I quote the British Defence Minister who is in Beurut at the moment: "these are not surgical attacks". He openly questions the Israeli tactics and motives, as do many people around the world.

The aim of taking out Hezbollah cannot and is not being met with these bombings which look like state terrorism designed more to exact revenge than meet military targets.

Rami Khouri: "Bush fails to grasp that Hizbullah's rise to prominence in the past quarter century in many ways represents a reaction to the three principal causes of mass dissatisfaction, anger, fear and humiliation among Arab populations: ineffective and autocratic Arab governments, an aggressive and predatory Israel, and a US that supports both of these tormentors of ordinary Arabs. If these underlying problems are not addressed and resolved, groups like Hizbullah will continue to emerge organically from the Middle Eastern soil, regardless of what happens to Hizbullah in the coming weeks."

A scary thought that will haunt not only Israel, but all the people in the Middle East that were looking to a less confrontational and more democratic future. I can only hope that Slobodan Olmmert knows what he is doing, when experience is showing us daily in Iraq and Palestie that this is not the case.

You can't compare the terrorist bombings in Spain, France or England to what happens in Israel. Hezbollah attacks Israel every few months, it's not something rare and they won't stop until they destroy Israel!

If Spain was attacked every month by a certain terrorist organization across the border or its towns were attacked by rockets, I believe it wouldn't sit quietly and say: "oh well, we're not Israel. Let our civilians die, but we won't endanger their civilians!" It would make sure that this organization would pay the price, first by pressuring the government of that state and if that doesn't help, if this state is hostile and careless, you would act by yourself and eliminate them. If that's the only way, then that is the way you do it.

Hezbollah hide behind civilians and your comments prove that their methods of making Israel look as the bad guys actually seem to work!

What political process are you talking about?! Israel has been urging Lebanon to take responsibility and disarm Hezbollah for years and they spat in Israel's face, meanwhile Israeli civilians and soldiers died by Hezbollah's attacks.

Also, according to Israeli Army reports, half of Hezbollah has been destroyed and there are over a hundred Hezbollah militants that have been killed. So among the 350 killed, over a hundred are Hezbollah militants.

which children? when that happend? which people you are talking about? can u just point out the news (international not Israeli one) which could support what yousay. In past 2 years we have had even one news in BBC saying what you claim

---

-----
yes you are right. apparently all of Hezbullah militante were childeren thats why the other half are only cholderen.

i am sure if IDF does not say that they have destroyed half of the Hezbullah they won't be able to justify thier actions within Israel, how can they ask people to support them to put thier own peopl in larger risk.

----

the difference here, every one from Lebanon and all places in the worl say, lets stop this terror and peopl getting killed, every one say should stop Hezbullah and inappropriate attack of Israel.

But Israel say (and some of you peopl) stop Hezbullah but don't expect us to not kill people since we are against terror so whoever we kill is a terrorist. even if its a child still it will become a terrorist.

Here we are against Hezbullah, but you don't get this fact. You Israli just criticise every one agains war no matter if they support Hezbullah or if they are against them.

you look at things from one point of view and thats your benefit. there is no humanity in what you say or feel

Israel doesn't say that if it kills a child it means this child's a terrorist. It does not wish to kill anyone but terrorists, and if you refuse to believe it then there's nothing here to discuss with you because you should do more research, be open minded and control your feelings, mainly anger and hatred.

Israel does not criticize anyone. It is Israel who's being criticized by the whole world for every little thing it does. That's the problem about Israel - it lets reporters in. The Chechnya conflict does not draw any attention, while there is much more killing there than in Israel. Why nobody talks about that conflict? Because there is no media coverage there. Reporters are afraid to go there. How nice it is of Russia to sell Syria and Iran weapons and then condemn Israel for its actions after Hezbollah fires RUSSIAN rockets at its civilians. How nice it is of Russian to condemn Israel of war crimes when they themselves kill Chechens by hundreds.

Israel supports the Lebanese who are against Hezbollah. Israel supports Lebanon, but not the Hezbollah. It is too bad that people are unaware of it. Too bad.

It’s too bad the Lebanese people allow Hezbollah terrorists to operate in their midst. I don’t want war in Lebanon; I just wish the peaceful people of the Middle East would clean up their own countries. If you harbour terrorists and people who call for the wholesale eradication of westerners and Jews then chances are you will be treated as an enemy and dealt with accordingly. Anonymous bombers and terrorists are cowards and will remain in the gun sights of those who strive for a world peace until the threat that they pose is terminated, join the rest of the world and try to live peacefully. Shame on your Government, shame on Hezbollah and most of all shame on the people of Lebanon for being weak and allowing Hezbollah to operate in your country.

I think that the people of Lebanon have the gole to destroy Hizbollah gerilla force. Hizbolla was an ever will be a terror group, the dog of the Iranian`s and the Syrian`s.
When ever this terror countries wand the dog to bark and bit, they just switch the button, and the lofe of the israelies and the lebanonies is going throght hell. I ask way? why should we, the small citizens have to suffer?
We just want to live in peace, peace between Israel and Lebanon.
The Hizbolla attacked Israel first and kidnapped two of the IDF soldiers, then fired rockets on our cities. would you instead of us do nothing and take the blame? i don`t so.
the solution is to diasarm the terrists hizbolla or what ever thay call them selvese, release the hostages and the army of Lebanon take incharge of the south country. Israely citizen who want peace

To anonymous (03:12), regarding Chomsky's speach.

Noam Chomsky's extreme hate for Israel is well known and well established. The guy might be a good linguist, but he is so hateful that it seems his logic goes bananas here.

He basically describes the whole situation as a direct outcome of Israel's "atrocities" in Gaza, making it "a prison". Well, Israel had left Gaza. ISRAEL LEFT GAZA. The Palestinians celebrated that move as a victory over Israel, instead of even trying to see it as a move toward some peaceful solution. But that's not the main point here - would they celebrate being put in "a prison"? I mean, how demagogic and misleading can an academic be?

And the "abduction" of the 2 "civilians" in Gaza didn't come out of the blue. Had there not been a constant shooting of Kassam rockets on Israeli towns (intentionally targeting civilians, exactly as the HA are doing in the north, and exactly the opposite of what Israel is doing in Lebanon), there would also be no invasions to the Gaza strip.

Chomsky describes the 'abduction' of Gilad Shalit as somehow ok, as opposed to the 'atrocity' of 'terrorist kidnapping' of the 2 'civilians'. Yet he forgets that at the time of shalit's kidnapping, 2 other crew members were shot dead from zero range. And this supposed to be ok, right? (as opposed to arresting 2 suspected terrorists, which is an 'atrocity'.)

However, all this is totally irrelevant to the current trouble in Lebanon. I guess Chomsky doesn't have a better reasoning to refer to the situation there, other than that onanistic _israel_atrocities_in_gaza_ thingy, and it goes on and on. It really doesn't impress as being particularly clever, or convincing. (the only thing I could hear about Lebanon was his referring to the 3 Lebanese prisoners in Israel). I don't know about all three of them, but Samir Kuntar, one of them, is jailed for murdering the Haran family in Nahariya in 1979. He (with several others) took them hostage, and before surrendering, he shot the father, and smashed the head of the 4 year old daughter with his gun grip.

>Israel needs a new civil war in Lebanon but we will not succumb to its conspiracy.

- It is a lie !!! Israel needs Lebanon as a prosperous and modern state and of course as a good neighbour. No one in Israel wants a strip of the Lebanese land.

>Even if its actions are unilateral and influenced by Iran and Syria, Hezbollah is a Lebanese party with over one million supporters in our country.

- No one in Israel is against being Hizballa a political party. We are against the situation of a " State within a state ". The govt. of Lebanon must excersize its souvereignity over an every corner of a country.

> And a civil war is worse than a thousand Israeli invasions or air strikes.

- Also you may ask yourself how did this monster grew so large ? And what if tomorrow they want to tun Lebanon into Shia islamic replublic and all of you : Maronites , Druzes , Armenians will be Dhimmi ?

>Israel is not fighting Hezbollah, it is killing our children and terminating our nation's economic future.

- That's a simple LIE !!!

>National unity is essential and we have to face this tragedy united not politically but humanely.

- OK to unite. I'm also sure , that there are Shiis opposing Hizballa. Still Hizballa are a minority.

Writing the text I'm sure that my government is doing everything to help humanitarian actions.

With the best wishes to Lebanon nation and our citizens at the north of Israel suffering from Hizballa bombings.

It is a good example to prove how a few pictures can manipulate people to think the way they want you to think. Israel never shows photographs of dead children, maybe that's why people seem to look at Israel as the aggressor here.

The first images make Israeli children look as if they hate Lebanese and write them death wishes. They were only drawing Israeli flags on the shells. The messages there were written by their parents and they're addressed only to Nasrallah and Hezbollah.

Every mob taking religion as a shelter and so the state is vanished and when there is no state,anything can happen.Do not scream against bombs and destruction,Scream at first about your losing identity and state.Lebanon was a land of famous civilization not the land of Arabs or Garabs.Even in modern centuries ,Lebanon was a land of rich culture but you taking culture as wealth,dance and songs .So if you want to live in peace and dignity,recognize your identity ,build your state and send to hell all false religions and all mobs with best wishes.

Thanks to all who had responded, through the anger or through acceptance. Repeating one more time: we need peace with You. But without Hezbollah.
Imagine that Your country is a body in which a disease – Hezbollah – had developed. What would You do? Are You agree to be sick, or You wish to banish the disease?
Otherwise, imagine that Hezbollah is situated on the territory of Israel, and You are fired for many years from that side.
Yes, we are different. You have a lot of beautiful and interesting things, so we do. Let us see resemblance, not only the differences. And let's grasp peacefully even the differences.
And until Hezbollah wouldn't quiet down, how can we not to respond?..

The Israelis caused Hezbollah to be the only force that could protect South Lebanon.

The PLO in Lebanon observed a cease fire for over a year, and Israel responded with an invasion that killed 20,000 people and occupied Lebanon for 20 years. During that time, Israel prevented Lebanon from arming itself - except Hezbollah, which ignored Israel and the US and armed itself despite all Israeli countermeasures.

The truth about Israelis is this: they are exactly like the Japanese were after the Second World War. Everything about the Rape of Nanking, the Bataan Death March, etc. was excised from their school books, and taken from their history.

Given your cyclical historical amnesia, of COURSE you think the bizarre and sickening things you post in places like this, and even think you're bending over backward for peace. As Germany was, and as Japan oh so slowly partly was, Israel needs to be deprogrammed, so to speak.

Lebanese: I would humbly suggest that no matter how you feel you not respond "in kind" because first, the Israelis don't know what they're saying or what they did, and second, anger is a good excuse to withdraw into denial.

Just remind them of as many facts as you can. I realize there's an endless supply of propaganda - because there's a worldwide rightist network that supplies it, basically, as an industry. But much of it is repetitive.

I'm trying to do my bit. Any Israeli with a sense of honesty should look carefully into the origins of Hamas and Hezbollah, these cancers the Arab neighbors have let grow through their weakness and lack of desire for peace. Then ask yourself, did my country have any part in this? What was it? Do I approve of it? Did it really make me safer, or just make my military more powerful?

Eternal war is the health of the state, and Israel has many Orwellian qualities we outsiders can see, that most of you cannot see.

Perhaps the use of graphic imagery can be construed as a propoganda tool.
But you miss a point.

The Lebanese people do not have multi-million dollar Western funding.
They do not have the might of the Bush administration.

While you as an Israeli soldier carry weapons and safety equipment funded by the worlds biggest superpower, the Lebanese people (Hizbullah excepted because they are not Lebanese) what do they have? They have stones and a little website of photographs of victims.

I dont think you are in a position to comment about the distortion of news, when you have FOX news as your propoganda voice and Getty images as your propoganda photographer.
