It goes like this. When Hezbollah commits war crimes such as firing missiles from residential neighborhoods, using 'civilians' as human shields, and when Hezbollah runs and hides in houses among civilians, both war crimes, it gets no mention from the MSM or the UN, a synonym for Useless Nations. A lot of the reporting I've seen on casualties goes like this, when Hezbollah's katyusha rockets get lobbed into Israel's cities by the hundreds/day, they describe the victims as just 'people.' But when Israel fires back with precisely targeted munitions, they 'kill civilians.'

Thanks, USA Today: Dumb Pro-Hezbollah Headline of the Week.
By Debbie Schlussel
Israel is in the fight of its life against Shia Islamic terror (Hezbollah), and what does USA Today do?
Well, yesterday, half the op-ed page went to a silly article by George E. Bisharat, a professor at Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. The absurd headline:
"Did Israel Really Need to Savage the Beauty of Beirut?"
Terrorists from his precious Beirut are murdering innocent people in his precious Beirut and in Israel (and they already murdered over 241 U.S. Marines and civilians). And he's worried about the "Beauty of Beirut"?!
It figures that he's a law professor in come-out-of-the-closet-land. Because only a girlie-man would be concerned about "beauty" when an ugly terrorist group is killing innocent people.
Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah's Girlie-Man Terrorist Leader
(Sheikh--or, rather Sheikha--Nasrallah Artwork by David Lunde)
Bisharat's silly article--an excuse to bash Israel and do the work of Al-Manar (Hezbo TV Network)--speaks of the "breathtaking" Bekaa Valley--the same "breathtaking Bekaa Valley in which his precious Hezbollah grows one of the worlds largest crops of pot and coke. (And of course, predictably, USA Today had no pro-Israel op-ed to "balance" things out.)
Here are a few questions in response to his dumb one:
* Did Hezbollah Really Need to Kill Eight Soldiers and Kidnap Two?
* Did Hezbollah Really Need to Savage the Beauty of Many Israeli Cities that it Has Been Shelling for Years?
* Did Hezbollah Really Need to Savage the Beauty of the Buenos Aires Jewish Community Center When it Blew the Joint Up?
* Did Al-Qaeda Really Need to Savage the Beauty of the New York City Skyline? (And Where Was Your Article on That?)
Looks like "Professor" Bisharat is a card-carrying member of the Hezbollah Girlie-Man Absurdity Caucus.[Debbie Schlussel]
