The parable of those who take [beings or forces] other than God for their protectors is that of the spider which makes for itself a house: for behold, the frailest of all houses is the spider's house. If only they understood this! (Quran 29:41)

Revisionism in the Guardian
"Fighting had begun in July 2006 when Hezbollah, the armed Islamic group that had been terrorising Israel with rocket attacks, went one step further and ambushed an Israeli patrol, killing two soldiers and kidnapping two more." Except that Hezbollah did not fire rockets at Israel until after Israel started bombing Lebanese civilians. The way this article puts it you'd think Hezbollah was firing rockets at Israel non-stop for ages AND THEN captured two Zionist terrorists. Of course the regular Israeli raids on Lebanon and kidnapping Lebanese don't count. Israeli war planes invade Lebanese airspace on a daily basis and their patrols frequently enter Lebanon, bomb Lebanese territory and kidnap Lebanese citizens (a Lebanese shepherd was kidnapped a few months ago) yet that's fine.
