Why Are So Many Lebanese Dead?

Why did so many Lebanese die compared to Israel?


When Benjamin Netanyahu was interviewed on British television last week, the interviewer asked him: "How come so many more Lebanese have been killed in this conflict than Israelis?" Netanyahu: "Are you sure that you want to start asking in that direction?" Interviewer: “Why not?” Netanyahu: "Because in World War II more Germans were killed than British and Americans combined, but there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the war was caused by Germany's aggression. And in response to the German blitz on London, the British wiped out the entire city of Dresden, burning to death more German civilians than the number of people killed in Hiroshima. Moreover, I could remind you that in 1944, when the R.A.F. tried to bomb the Gestapo Headquarters in Copenhagen, some of the bombs missed their target and fell on a Danish children's hospital, killing 83 little children. Perhaps you have another question?"
And it was the MORAL thing to do.

If they spent 5% of the amount of money that went to buy missiles, on building civilian bomb shelters, then maybe less civilians would have died in a war that they started and have been preparing for for the last 6 years.
Also, not firing rockets from schools and apartment buildings would have helped.

That makes the presumption that Hezballah desires to spare their countrymen, women and children. Hardly. They want dead corpses to display. It suits their propaganda war needs.

Ofcourse, you know this. Just sayin'...
