Lebanese people save some of their belongings from the battered southern suburbs of Beirut, 19 August
The Israeli army says it has shot three Hezbollah fighters in Lebanon as the ceasefire between Israel and the Shia group extends into its second week.
An Israeli army spokesman said on Monday evening: "A force identified armed gunmen coming toward them in a threatening way. The soldiers fired at them and identified three hits."
Remember that one of the conditions of the cease-fire, communicated to the Olmert Regime personally by Kofi Annan, is that Israel must consult the UN - and present evidence - before Israel "responds" militarily to anything.
Remember that with one voice, Israeli/Zionist Pundits screamed about how the wicked terrorist organization, Hezbollah, would not respect the cease-fire.
Witness Israel violating it daily ...
The war that keeps on killing
Eli Stephens, Left I on the News

Israel has broken the ceasefire once again, killing four Lebanese children and wounding 21 in the last few days. What, you haven't read about it? That's because these deaths were caused by weapons fired before the ceasefire went into effect: cluster bombs. According to the U.N., these weapons, not illegal per se but illegal when fired into urban areas as they were, were fired largely in the last few days of the war, as (and these are my words, not the U.N.'s) Israel lashed out in vengeance to kill as many Lebanese as possible before it was forced to stop its deadly assault, at least temporarily.
Now those unexploded cluster bombs litter the villages of southern Lebanon, just waiting for the small children to pick them up and die, or perhaps just be crippled for life, like Sukna, Hassan and Merwa Saleh.
And, please promise not to be shocked, but the origin of these weapons...is the United States.
"You see what America is sending us," [Aisa Hussain] said bitterly. "This is their idea of democracy."
Israelis rise up in anger over war
Probe, Olmert resignation demanded
August 22, 2006
JERUSALEM -- Hundreds of Israeli reservists pushed Monday for an investigation of how the government and army handled 34 days of fighting with Hizballah guerrillas, saying they were rushed into battle without enough food, water and equipment.
The reservists signed a petition saying they were ready to risk their lives in the defense of Israel, "but there was one thing we are not willing to accept -- indecisiveness."
In another sign of anger over the handling of the war, parents of fallen soldiers called for Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's resignation, saying their sons had died for nothing.
Olmert's coalition hit by row
By Allyn Fisher-Ilan Tue Aug 22, 9:03 AM ET
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's coalition government was jolted on Tuesday by a row over financing the war in Lebanon, a week after a shaky ceasefire with Hizbollah guerrillas took effect.
Tensions flared after members of Olmert's top coalition partner, the left-leaning Labor party, balked at supporting a two billion shekel ($459 million) budget cut to cover military expenses and help northern Israel recover from the war.
Officials said that without the funds, Israeli reservists, many of whom are already seething over the army's failure to crush Hizbollah, cannot be paid.

Eitan: Ready shelters for Iran attack
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Pensioners Minister Rafi Eitan called for the readying of bomb shelters and reinforced rooms countrywide on Tuesday, in advance of a possible conflict with Iran.
Perhaps preparing for another False Flag Attack, in order to achieve the war the Neo-Fascists desire, but could not supe the world into legitimizing, after the whole Iraq/WMD bullsh*t?
Remember, Iran doesn't want a war. Your Extremist leaders, with their own interests in mind, want you to go to war with Iran ...
