Subject: RE: BS: Hamas attacks Israel - part II
Thanks for what the mods and background digital rehabbers are doing to get the thread back. I thought it was a better than average thread on the unhappy doings in the current Middle East.

Meanwhile, I am repeating my link to the Israel/ Lebanon/ Hezbollah fracas of 2006: A History of Violence

Reason being, there were great parallels in instigation by terrorist organization, response across the border by Israel, capture of soldiers for ransom, ultimate withdrawal by Israel with a great deal of infrastructure damage to Lebanon. I suspect that Israelis leaders are considering past experiences in Lebanon and Gaza WRT their course of action right now.

If you like intersting movies, an interesting Israeli movie that came out after the Lebanon affair was: "Waltz with Bashir" It is important to mention that the movie was based on incidents in 1982 but involved commentary that was heavily influenced by the 2006 war.
