    • thats correct.

      it doesnt really matter if its a grad missile or an
      f-16 missile. the suffering is the same.

      but till now the ones which filed suits where mostly arabs against Israel.
      i guess this kind of suit came as some kind of counter-reaction.

  • What sick perversion of the law.. who's going to file suit on behalf of the thousands killed and wounded by bombs supplied and paid for by the US taxpayer? Oh I forgot, the only victims here are Israelis.

  • thats pretty funny, they want to comaplain that if it wasnt for iranian money, hezbollah would not have been able to harm all those israelis. well guess what, if those israelis hadnt decided to invade and occuppy lebanon foer 20 years then they wouldnt have been harmed and hezbollah wouldnt have even been created. starting

    • so according to your line of logic why stop there???

      if the PLO whouldnt have been expelled by jordan to lebanon and launch missiles on northern israel for years, then Israel whouldnt have invaded lebanon.

      the aim of this suit is to bring up the point that hezbollah do Iran job in fighting Israel. by doing so Iran can damage Israel and get away with it.

    • well first off, why was hezbollah created in the first place?? they were created as a result of the first israeli invasion of lebanon, in essence israel itself created hezbollah.

      also, israel also fights iran by proxy the same way, there have been many reports and even some documentaries about how israelis have been training and arming kurdish rebels to fight iran the same way iran uses hezbollah to fight israel.

      i am not anti israeli or anti jewish, but i do think israel has gets special More..
