The Israeli armed forces fired at a United Nations observation post fourteen times today. Then, when the UN observers sought to save themselves by leaving the outpost and seeking shelter, the Israelis dropped a bomb on them, killing four.
Then, when civilians came to dig out the corpses of the UN observers, the Israeli forces fired on them as well.
I saw an Israeli spokesman denouncing the savagery of Hezbollah on television, holding up a piece of a fragmentation shell fired into Israel as evidence.
The Israeli forces are firing cluster shells at civilian targets in Lebanon.
Meanwhile, our government takes the position that a ceasefire would be pointless.
These are people who cannot see any point in stopping the savagery.
