UN official accuses Hezbollah of 'cowardly blending' among civilians

Haaretz reported The UN humanitarian chief accused Hezbollah late Monday of "cowardly blending" among Lebanese civilians and causing the deaths of hundreds during two weeks of cross-border violence with Israel. The militant group has built bunkers and tunnels near the Israeli border to shelter weapons and fighters, and its members easily blend in among civilians. On Monday he had strong words for Hezbollah, which crossed into Israel and captured two Israel Defense Forces soldiers on July 12, triggering fierce fighting from both sides.... "Consistently, from the Hezbollah heartland, my message was that Hezbollah must stop this cowardly blending ... among women and children," he said. "I heard they were proud because they lost very few fighters and that it was the civilians bearing the brunt of this. I don't think anyone should be proud of having many more children and women dead than armed men.

But women and children are unimportant to Islamoterrorists. They just want to kill Jews. They target Jewish women and children, because they are less likely to be able to shoot back, so they don't care if their own women and children die. In fact they hide behind their women and children, to protect themselves from being killed.
"We need a cessation of hostilities because this is a war where civilians are paying the price," said Egeland, before flying to Israel.

...but in the same breath condemns Israel for its 'disproportiniate response' to the rockets and the kidnappings.

What did you expect from anyone except the US to say. The world hates Jews. It would be better for us all if nations and their leaders had the guts to say it. At least the PLO and hez'bollocks say it. China, Russia, France and the rest of the cowardly lions don't.
