It's horrible enough that Jewish soldiers are slaughtered by the Hezb'Allah (party of Allah), but it is debased and depraved that the Muslim terrorist army planned the act of war in advance, and dispatched journalists to the area to ensure that cameras were present at the site to record any measure of self defense by the tiny Jewish state -- knowing that the anti-semitic media and an Obama-led world would demonize the Jews.
Think about that.
Lebanese Army Sniper Kills Israeli Commander in Border "Ambush"
An Israeli army spokeswoman told BBC that two Israeli officers had been attacked by "snipers from the Lebanese armed forces" in a "well-planned ambush" during maintenance operations on Israel's side of the border. The head of Israel's Northern Command, Maj.-Gen. Gadi Eizenkot, said the officers had been standing between 300 and 400 meters from the border, observing Israeli soldiers removing bushes near the border fence, when "sniper fire was directed at their position." Lt.-Col. Dov Harari, 45, was killed and an Israeli captain was "critically wounded." Israel responded with artillery and helicopter fire. The Lebanese army said three of its soldiers had been killed and four wounded. (BBC News)
