Not only will the IDF route them but I'm hoping that all Islam-0-swine are killed, not captured on the battlefield.

I presume the 'small town' is Bint Jbail, is it not?

Supposedly the Hezbollah 'capital'.

Nothing nicer than a group of guerrilla fighters assembling in one place and trying to slug it out using conventional warfare. Have the Israelis got the MOAB?

Yes, that is where they are. The reporter said they were asked to move by Israel, and they are fighing from the position where the reporter was.

After having the reporter on, and him talking about how important a battle going on, and how it's raging just now, Fox immediately cut away for fluff. They didn't even put the name of the town at the bottom (maybe they can't spell it.)

Fox is the Palestine of news sometimes. They never miss an opportunity to take the focus off a big story for more talking heads or Aruba...

"Hezbollah admitted in a statement Sunday that IDF troops had taken over the village, but called the move a defeat for Israel. "

Here is a snip from the link to Haaretz that you posted.

From the Baghdad Bob school of propaganda.

If the IDF takes prisoners, the Islamakazis will just kidnap a bunch of Israeli schoolchildren in order to make an exchange. Why volunteer for that?

Nice catch. Looks like we are using the enemy's maps. In fact the website has both English and Arabic versions of all their maps.

Yes, I don't see any other way to deal with them. They will not renounce terrorism. The Israelis will make short work of them. I'm not a Darwinist, but if I were to believe in Darwinism in action, it's islamic terrorists. They willingly kill themselves believing they get hot babes. Satan is laughing with delight at each one he fools into this "belief".

Fighting Moves Deeper into Lebanon
16:58 Jul 24, '06 / 28 Tammuz 5766
by Hillel Fendel

The current front: Hizbullah capital Bint Jbel, just six kilometers north of the Israeli border, where a fierce battle is currently raging. Several soldiers hurt, many terrorists killed.


The battle for Bint Jbel, which is considered the capital of Hizbullah, and nearby villages began last night. Bint Jbel lies 12 kilometers due north of Israel's Mt. Meron.

Nine soldiers were reported lightly wounded in the course of the fighting early this morning, apparently by a bomb or grenade. In addition, the forces met up with fierce Hizbullah fire, and the Israel Air Force is covering the ground forces. Several terrorists have been killed, and two have been taken captive.

The IDF had just barely completed taking over another Hizbullah stronghold, Marun a-Ras, which lies five kilometers southeast of Bint Jbel. Seven soldiers were killed in three days of battles in Marun a-Ras. Based on lessons learned there, the current thorough IDF advance is slower than last week's offensive.

The IDF has attacked 270 targets in Lebanon over the past day. Among them were nine long-range Katyusha launchers in the city of Tyre, 20 kilometers north of Israel along the Mediterranean coast. Katyushas have been fired at Haifa and environs in the past from Tyre. Ten tall buildings in southern Beirut were also bombed.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is scheduled to arrive in Jerusalem this evening (Monday), after a quick stop in Beirut. She will meet first with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Defense Minister Amir Peretz, and Foreign Minister Tzippy Livny, and afterwards with PA Chairman Abu Mazen. Rice is not expected to withdraw American support for Israel's offensive, but will discuss the option of stationing a multi-national force in southern Lebanon. Olmert said last night he would agree to this idea, though he specified that the participating forces must be of European Union member states.

IOW just the usual CNN anti-Israel propaganda show.

I have to admit that CNN has had more and better coverage of the fighting than Fox most of the time, but it has also been worse about showing only one side of the civilian suffering. I have probably seen 10 times more injured Lebanese babies on CNN than all the Israeli civilian and military dead and wounded casualties put together.
