Two wrongs don't make a right.

* this via kathleen:
"The Greens have again called on the Australian government to help engineer an immediate end to hostilities in Lebanon.

"The Prime Minister's failure to respect Lebanon's sovereignty and to demand an end to Israel's bombing of civilian targets in Lebanon, does not reflect the feedback we are getting from Australians," Greens Leader Bob Brown said today.

"Many Australians are appalled by the bombing of civilian targets by both Israel and Hezbollah. Two wrongs don't make a right. Hezbollah was never in control of Beirut airport, or many other civilian targets bombed by Israel. The continued destruction of Lebanon's civilian infrastructure is disproportionate and will not help bring peace to the Middle East."

"The Prime Minister, who has widely condemned Hezbollah, has wrongly failed to condemn the Israeli government for its bombing of civilian targets in Lebanon," Senator Brown said. "

Palast weighs in on Lebanon. His verdict: it's the lunatics pulling the puppet strings and petroleum purse strings (i.e. the US, Saudi Arabia, & Iran) who are winning.

Snark line (my emphasis):

If you want to know what’s going on, read Robert Fisk. He lives there. He speaks Arabic. Stay away from pundits whose only connection to the Middle East is the local falafel stand.
