Just some random thoughts:
I seriously think that PM Omert will probably go down as the worst PM in Israeli history. Expect him to be forced out of office the minute things settle down just a little bit. Sharon would never have botched the military operation so miserably. Never. Expect the Muslims in the region to take their holy war against the Jews to the next level as a result.
On another note, I have seen many on the left (in the Daily Kos, DU, Bring It ON) call the Zionists (that is what many on the left call Jews) Nazis trying to commit a brutal genocide to wipe Lebanon off the map. Keep in mind that the Nazis murdered more than 6 million defenseless Jews alone. That is not to mention all of the other undesirables according to German society at the time. As far as I know just over 700 Lebanese have been killed in mutual combat (that is if you believe Hizballah's numbers). Not a very appropriate comparison.
The left seems to forget what made the Nazis unique (although Stalin was a mass murderer as well) in their time. It wasn't because the Germans retaliated when their neighbors instigated a war by constantly firing across their border. That didn't happen. It wasn't because people were trying instigate a war by sending suicide bombers, many of them children, to murder German children children on school buses or in restaurants. That didn't happen. It wasn't because any country threatened to drive the Germans into the sea. That didn't happen. The Germans didn't try to exterminate the Jews just because of hate. The Germans also did it because they were power hungry and they were willing to use Jewish blood as a tool to get that power. Today's Islamic fascist have the same hate and the same goals in mind. Yet the left often doesn't want to talk about that. You see, Hamas and Hizballah (the Party Of Allah) are really poor oppressed people that are willing to live side by side with Israel in peace if those pesky Zionists (Jews) would just leave them alone. It is odd that the left calls the Jews of Israel who are just trying to survive the fascists. Something to think about.
Just a short reminder about Nazis. The Nazis tried to murder every man, woman and child that they deemed undesirable (The Islamic fascists are trying to do this to the Jews in Israel now). That included Jews, blacks, homosexuals Gypsies etc. (in this case that would most likely mean you infidel. Keep in mind the black Africans in the Sudan are just not the right color for the Arab Muslims in that region). With the Jews they would would make them run for miles in the snow and those that dropped to the ground died (nowadays the Islamic fascists just saw their heads off slowly..... think of Daniel Pearl). They packed them into cattle cars for days on end so thick and in extreme heat that people had to take turns to sit down. Those that died along the way stayed in those rail cars until they were all off loaded, days later. They were packed into tiny Concentration camps (much smaller than the West Bank I assure you, even though the left wants you to think otherwise). They performed horrible medical experiments on the Jews (experiments you wouldn't dream of doing to an animal) such as submerging in freezing water to see how much cold the human body could take before dying. They turned these Jewish men, women and children into slaves who labored for the German government (how many times have we heard Imams across the world say that enslavement of non-believers is acceptable). The Jews had their slave numbers tattooed on their arms so that they could be catalogued and kept track of. They were fed almost no food. Many died from starvation and disease. They were randomly shot just for the fun of it (sound familiar). It goes on and on. Think about that the next time you have the sudden urge to call the Zionists (Jews) Nazis for trying to defend their families.
