Israel continues to kill the Lebanese

Almost 2 weeks after the cease fire, Israel is still managing to inflict more casualties in the Lebanese people. Israel has left behind 100,000 unexploded bomblets (such a cute name for an instrument of death) from their extensive cluster bombing of 359 separate sites in Lebanon. "Everyday people are maimed, wounded and are killed by these ordnance, it shouldn’t have happened." said Jan Egeland, the top United Nations aid official, read the rest of the report here.

As if the world needed further evidence of the barbaric nature of the Israeli offensive, cluster bombs are used specifically to inflict the most damage against personnel, their threat to civilians and after effects are well known and their use is a hotly debated issue.
