Karnit Goldwasser On What Should Be Common Sense

CNN posts tonight on the hopes of Karnit Goldwasser, the newlywed wife of one of the two Israeli soldiers captured by Hezbollah:

Karnit, a newlywed, said there has been enough violence.

"We want the killing to be stopped, both in Israel and in Lebanon. We want everything to be back as it was before, no killing, no kidnapping, we want them back home."

We should all join her call for no more killing.

Peace won't come with a bomb or a bullett; every time a militia or an army kills other human beings, especially innocent civilians, that group only serves to fill other families and other groups of friends with rage and a desire for revenge.


  • Israel's in a tough position. They shouldn't keep rewarding groups like Hezbollah for kidnapping Israelis by giving in to their demands. And they can't rely on the Lebanese government, since they are too weak to handle Hezbollah.

    I thought that Israel overreacted at first, but I don't really see a better alternative. Weakening Hezbollah as much as possible and hoping for help from the Lebanese government to control or eliminate a weakened Hezbollah may be their best option.
