Hezbollah Ignores Cease-Fire, So UN Comdemns Israel

Reports My Way News:

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Saturday that an early-morning Israeli raid against Hezbollah in eastern Lebanon violated the 6-day-old cease-fire brokered by the United Nations. An Israeli officer was killed, and two soldiers wounded, when Israeli commandos raided a Hezbollah stronghold deep in Lebanon, resulting in a fierce gunbattle.

Israel said the raid was launched to stop arms smuggling from Iran and Syria to the militant Shiite fighters, while Lebanon's Prime Minister Fuad Saniora called the operation a "flagrant violation" of the U.N. truce.

I honestly can't see how the Lebanese government and Kofi Annan can be so flagrantly biased. How can they condemn Israel for breaking the cease-fire? If Lebanon and the UN aren't going to live up their part of the cease-fire and disarm Hezbollah and make a buffer zone, then what option does Israel have? Not to mention Hezbollah's flat out refusal to disarm. Where's the mainstream media and the UN's condemnation of Hezbollah for not following the cease-fire?
