This is a great site you have going, with valuable information.

It realy is not hard to expose the great injustice here: Israel is clearly in violation of international law, as is the US for sponsoring this terrorism (i.e. providing weaponry).

I dont know if I have ever been so impassioned about an issues as this: To support the Lebanese people in this horrible and tragic time.

Please link back to me, and I will add you site to mine.
