Rather: “It’s a problem that those of us in journalism have been reluctant to address — I do not exclude myself from this criticism — reluctant to address that Hezbollah is a terrorist organization. It’s committed to the destruction of Israel. It isn’t committed to trying to just gain territory. It’s committed to its destruction.”

(…) Many critics have cited the Israeli response as too harsh. Alas, if looking at this as Israel’s retaliation to Hezbollah’s abduction of its two soldiers then yes, those critics would be correct. However, what needs to be kept in mind is that this particular war against Hezbollah is Israel saying enough to all of the rockets and constant terrorism raining down on them from their neighbours. For months and years, Israel has endured countless attacks while the world stood by and watched. Now, when it finally decides to stand up for itself and its people the world decides to intervene.

If the international community believes the Islamic jihad will stop with Israel, it is sorely mistaken. The answer to this conflict is not an immediate ceasefire. Furthermore, I personally do not believe a diplomatic solution simply involving Hezbollah and Israel will solve anything either. What it will do is give Hezbollah and its terrorists the chance to regroup.(…)

Israel can’t afford to lose this fight
