    And the world wants Israel to allow an international force to guard its borders... What a joke. The Lebanese know what would happen if they attacked Israeli troops which is why they targeted UN. Israel alone is responsible for its own border defenses... no one else can be trusted to do a good job.

      There is no mention of who was actually responsible, so I don't really understand why people automatically assume it was the Islamic militant (that's not to say that it was not, they simply don't know). It is just as plausible that it may have been the Israelis, after all this would not be the first time they "accidentally" bombed a UN convoy. That's why no further information is available, because for some reason, any kind of genocide that is done by the nation of Israel is swept under the rug and never mentioned again. It's good to be an Israeli Jew, you can literally get away with murder.

      Mary, you are a moron. Libya = Islamic country. Most likely it was an Islamic group that did it. Common sense goes a long way and you seem to be lacking. You're blinded by your antisemitism and lack of brain cells.

    Hezbollah, the militia that was supposed to disarm to stop the fighting in Lebanon a couple years back is more well equiped than the Lebanese Army now. When will we ever learn....

      Why? So that Hariri and his Al Qaeda inspired Salafists/Wahhabists would have a free reign butchering every remaining Christian and Shiite and turn Lebanon into an Imara that mirrors Saudi Arabia? No thanks.

    I'm just waiting for one of you boneheads to blame Israel. Or suggest it was a US military drone strike.

    Hezbollah must be destroyed.

      Your name is an oxymoron: Canadian and Genius ? HA!

      As far as I know, Hizballah never attacked the UNIFIL. If I remember correctly, the IDF targetted them several times, and after the Second Lebanon War, Al Qaeda inspired terrorists attacked the UNIFIL on multiple occasions.

      Actually Billy, Hezbollah may not have previously attacked UN compounds, but they do have a special talent of hiding near UN compounds after committing cowardly terrorist attacks. And thanks for your hate of Canada, you are now exposed as a mindless bigot. Nothing you say is of any value.

      Yo Samer, looks like your the only terrorist supporter on this board. Too bad you don't like Israel, is it because every time you and your ilk try and mess with Israel they kick the crap out of you. Aww poor little muslim, can't face the truth that your little Hezbollah and Hamas allies are what is wrong with the middle east. No one is ever going to listen to people like you, because most pweople realize that w/out Israel, the Middle east would be a complete cesspool

    Who would bomb the UN, maybe Iran's Hezbollah puppet army? The Arab Spring also has to deal with the "dark side" all over the Middle East- Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, The Taliban, Al Qaida, etc.

    It could be the Syrian intelligence, or its puppets, just to divert attention.
