These figures clearly demonstrate that the only measure the IDF knows is that one lebanese civilian life is worth less than a flys life!

Please also take into account that these are yesterdays figures, and that today with 55 new civilian casualties was the most bloody day since the war started.

I think the hottest place in hell is reserved for those that step aside and do nothing in times of need.

Don´t waste your time with useless internet petitions. Their only effect will be ad revenues for their webmasters.

Write amnesty-style letters to your MP, the foreign minister, the Israeli embassy and the Israeli government asking to protest or to stop the indiscriminate killings.

Clutter their Inboxes with e- or even better snail mail!
