Posted on 08/01/2006 7:57:21 PM PDT by Nachum
IN THE WEST, Qana, a small Lebanese village southeast of Tyre, is believed by some to be the place where Jesus performed his first miracle, turning water into wine. In Lebanon and throughout the wider Arab and Muslim world, however, the village's name has for the last decade been synonymous with something else: the killing in April 1996 of more than 100 men, women and children who had taken refuge in a U.N. compound, hiding from Israeli shelling directed at Hezbollah. Over time, Qana has been sculpted by Hezbollah into a symbol of martyrdom, a Shiite version of Sabra and Shatila.

...then you would think the citizens would wise up there and get the Hezzies out since they seem to be bombed every now and then for said reason.....keep it up....we shall keep bombing....no "time outs" for you guys
How about, war's a nasty business, sh*t happens?
Perhaps this Liberal idiot would like to get the facts straight before condemning Israel. But, when did the MSM ever care about the truth? No blame for the Hezzies is there?
Mr. Shatz has the right last name ,because he's certainly full of Shatz !!!
Shatz should get the Noam Chomsky Award for the self-hating Jewish anti-Israeli rant of the day.
If "sorry" won't help, I would try "too bad, so sad"
This clown Adam Shatz is Jewish. That's the sad part.
If you harbor terrorists, you are as guilty as the people you harbor. It's just that simple. Don't like it, either kick them out, or get the hell out of the way.
I'll reserve smart-aleck comment on this one. This "journalist" needs to learn how to to research. OTOH, I have an opinion too, can I get paid for it?
I guess this writer hasn't heard that there were only a few dozen killed, and that it's likely the building came down 7 hours after the Israeli airstrike, likely because the Hezzies brought it down on the women and handicapped kids they brought in (and were they alive or dead when the Hezzy demons brought in the "victimes")?
What this has shown anyone paying attention is that there is no more patient a country than Israel and that Hezbollah uses that to its advantage to kill Israelis.
Worked for me. I feel fine about it!
Mr. Shatz, the LA Times and the MSM don't care.
It's Israel's fault!!!
Or, maybe, it's Bush's...
Another example of a Jew from the "Lost Tribe" of Israel - the STUPID TRIBE -- most of whom found their way to America...the only place on the planet where the stupid can thrive and multiply...
Hezbo made a mistake too ..they were trying to kill civilians,old men ,women,and children, and accidentally killed 2 soldiers
Too many people miss the point. Civilians die in war.
There are some obscure small towns that suffered mild damage from bombs and rockets. London, Berlin, Dresden, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and a few others.
Estimated casualties were between 150 and 200 thousand.
His namesake is very fitting.
la timid times needs to get some email
"This clown Adam Shatz is Jewish. That's the sad part."
"Oven Jews" like Adam Shatz are beyond contempt. I despise them more than the Islamofascists.
This author won't let Israel off the hook but turns a deaf ear to the suffering and murder perpetrated by terrorists like Hezbollah. Nice objective article! (sarc)
Why doesn't Hezbollah call an end to hostilities if it's all so terrible? If Hezbollah waled away today, the Israelis wouldn't take over Lebanon, they'd go home to their families. Even the fogged out left knows this, so they shout and wave their arms to distract us.
And what better place to stage a 'massacre'?
Believe it or not a sister in law of Chomsky was on a local talk show. She was a hopeless peacenik which Noam Chomsky is not
Sorry ....that does'nt fit the MSM mantra.
If he's going to throw this in as "A FACT", tells you a whole lot about the rest of the 'story'. Plus as Rush says, people like this are LIBERALS FIRST, Jewish second
Shatz - "Let us assume, for the sake of argument, that Israel did, in fact, make the same mistake twice in Qana or, to take another recent example, in Gaza, where a family of eight spending an afternoon on the beach was killed by an errant Israeli shell in June."
CNN - The explosion on a Gaza beach that killed seven people last Friday was caused by explosives planted there by Palestinian militants, not artillery fire from an Israeli navy gunboat, Israeli military sources said Tuesday.
An Israeli commando unit used the beach to enter Gaza for a mission in recent weeks, prompting the militants to place the mines, the sources said.
Intelligence information gathered by Israeli investigators showed that Hamas quickly removed the remaining mines from the beach after the blast, the sources said.
Hezbullah has the option of not firing from residential areas or surrendering.
In a war you can't complain that one side killed too many on the other side, it's war. Where was this guy when suicide bombers were killing women and children? Did he complain that Israel didn't kill enough of the bad guys?
The ironic part is that the terrorists would kill this guy without batting an eye simply because he is a Jew, if he survived a terrorist attack he'd probably die of guilt
How about the fact that news reports today are saying that it is now believed that Hezbollah held the children there, launched a missle to Israel knowing there would be retaliation, to do an ugly PR job on Israel.
Hezbollah has alway been masterful at turning the tables on their enemies in the PR arena.
Just once, let's hear the the UN condemn Hezbollah or any other mass murdering group for purposely killing Israeli children at school, in buses, at home in their beds, at restaurants, at play? I don't buy it. Remember the big fake job the Palestinians pulled in Jenin 4 years ago. They claimed they had suffered a massacre - same words as now - turned out to be vastly exaggerated and the media with any integrity quietly admitted they backed a lie.
Guess the LA Slime did not get the updated information that Qana was another staged "Atrocity" like Jelin. It a lie put out by Hizbulla.
"Yes, dumbasss. Israel is deliberately targeting terrorists"
Plus, does Hezbollah drop leaflets or notify the villages in Israel that they are going to be bombed or targeted?
Bias is as bias does.
ummmm.. yes it is more acceptable. Its the difference btw accident and deliberate. If I punch you in the face on purpose is that worse than your 2 year old accidentally hitting your nose? this guy is an idiot. If you want to end civilian casualties try to resist using them as shields.
Israel responds with restraint, responding to an unprovoked attack, and inevitably there are some civilian casualties - this is war buddy, stuff happens - and suddenly "no apology is good enough."
Yes, this is assymetrical warfare, all right. It is assymetrical because the media and fools like this guy make it so. Give the terrorists a complete pass, and act as if Israel has to follow the laws as if it were a private citizen in the US. It's completely ridiculous. This author is a moron. The US faces the exact same problem when the terrorists attack it - we must be "so careful" not to hurt a single innocent fly overseas, whereas the terrorists not only have no such limitations, they don't even get criticized in the media. I just read stuff like this and can't believe it.
They are not a "lost tribe" they are jews, that are not lost, they abandoned ship a long time ago during the battle.
