I lived through Sharon's murderous indiscriminate bombing and siege of Beirut in 1982 for three entire months when American cluster bombs, napalm, phosphorous bombs, rockets, missiles "rained" on an urban city. I pulled U.S. made shrapnel from burned and injured children dropped by America's ideological soulmates in Tel Aviv. Ten UN Security Council Resolutions were passed then “urging” Israel to stop the killing, to no avail....
Israel's excuse in 1982 was the attempted assassination of its UK Ambassador. Today (July 2006) it’s the capture of three soldiers as POW’s in a state of war between the powerful occupiers and the hapless occupied. "Deceit and adventurism" was how former Prime Minister Moshe Sharrett characterized Israel's military zeal for blood.
You only have to read the quotes of many Israeli officials, Rabbis, military generals, and some media to understand that Israel’s racist policies and apartheid existence is manifested in ethnic cleansing, population transfer, massacres, bombings, and assassinations as official policy. Peace is anathema to Zionist expansionism.
The sages of the Talmud, explaining G-d's words through His prophets, already told us that, "The Geulah (redemption) comes through wars." -Megilah 17B.
