Israel At War
- Why They Fight
By Charles Krauthammer - Jewish World Review - July 14, 2006 In 1967 Israel acquired the "occupied territories." In 1948 Israel acquired life. The fighting raging now in 2006 — between Israel and the "genocidal Islamism" (to quote the writer Yossi Klein Halevi) of Hamas and Hezbollah and Iran behind them — is about whether that life should and will continue to exist.
- Moment of Truth
by David Horowitz - FrontPageMagazine.com - July 14, 2006
The goal of the United States and Israel and all freedom-loving and civilized people in this war must be the destruction of the Hamas and Hizbollah leadership, their military infrastructure and capabilities.
- Israel at war
David Horovitz - Jerusalem Post - July 14, 2006 There are those who have branded this latest conflict a continuation of Israel's War of Independence, and there is no little truth in the assertion. On both of the fronts on which Israel has been drawn into heavy fighting, its enemies can make no legitimate claim to be pursuing a territorial dispute: as of last summer, Israel relinquished its hold on the Gaza Strip; in Lebanon, it pulled back to the UN-certified international border six years ago.
- Battle Plans: Israel's next war has begun
By Yossi Klein Halevi - Jewish World Review - July 13, 2006 Absurdly, despite Israel's withdrawal to the international borders with Lebanon and Gaza, much of the international community still sees the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers as a legitimate act of war: Just as Israel holds Palestinian and Lebanese prisoners, so Hamas and Hezbollah now hold Israeli prisoners. One difference, though, is that inmates in Israeli jails receive visits from family and Red Cross representatives, while Israeli prisoners in Gaza and Lebanon disappear into oblivion. Like Israeli pilot Ron Arad, who was captured by Hezbollah 20 years ago, then sold to Iran, and whose fate has never been determined. That is one reason why Israelis are so maddened by the kidnapping of their soldiers.
- War and peace
Jerusalem Post - July 13, 2006 Israel should do what it can on its own to restore deterrence and maintain its security. But the international community must also choose whether it wants, by refusing to speak out forcefully and unequivocally against aggression, to lay the groundwork for endless and escalating rounds of attacks. An international community that has continually demanded that Israel take risks for peace must do its part to ensure that Israel's security is increased, not decreased, as a result.

- 2 killed, 50 wounded in north
Israel approves new strikes against Lebanon
by Ryan Jones - Jerusalem Newswire - July 14, 2006
Lebanon-based Hizb'allah terrorists fired more than 100 Katyusha missiles at northern Israel Friday, killing an Israeli woman and her five-year-old grandson and wounding more than 50 others.
The deaths occured in the town of Meron just before the Sabbath, when a Hizb'allah missile slammed into one family's home, wounding three children, their parents, and their grandmother. Rescue teams were unable to save the elderly woman and the young boy. Another child is listed in moderate-to-serious condition.
Twelve others were wounded earlier when a single rocket impacted a residential building in the northern town of Tsefat (Safed). One victim is listed in serious condition.
Hizb'allah has fired over 800 Katyusha missiles and mortar shells at northern Israel over the past several days, hitting targets as far south as Haifa.
As many as one million Israelis are living in bomb shelters, while many others have fled Israel's northern regions.
In response to the escalating threat, Israel's Cabinet Friday approved a series of additional military strikes against Hizb'allah and its Lebanese hosts.
Israeli warplanes pounded Hizb'allah offices and a radio station in southern Beirut, and destroyed a number of rocket stockpiles.
A major bridge on the main Beirut-Damascus highway was also bombed, as Israel works to prevent Hizb'allah from transporting two abducted IDF soldiers to Iran.
