Free Bodies..

So Israel has returned the bodies of the Hezbollah terrorists killed in the infiltration attempt earlier this week. And what do they get in return? Diddly squat. Surprise surprise.

When I was reading this story last night, the explanation given was that Lebanon stressed that if hezbollah didn't get their bodies back, Israelis would be kidnapped and in order to maintain the 'peace', they should be returned.

Excuse me? Unless the bodies were returned Hezbollah was threatening kidnappings?!? Isn't that what got them killed in the first place?!

Honest to God, what the heck was the logic behind returning these bodies, or any terrorist bodies? Whatever happened to deterrence? If you were to tell me that if Israel would have a policy of holding remains, than their enemies would be less-inclined to return Israeli remains too... that's what they do ANYWAY! How many terrorists did Israel have to release to get one civilian and 3 bodies of killed soldiers? Like 400. Not to mention that we still have no information on a handful of Israelis still missing. Why would these 3 be handed over free of charge?

they should return dead bodies. But they should be delivered by a hovering helicopter.

Anonymous, if you are saying that Israel should drop dead bodies out of a hovering helicopter thats a horrendous lack of respect to a dead body and against jewish law. suggesting that jews should do such a heinous act is shameful.

"if you are saying that Israel should drop dead bodies out of a hovering helicopter"

TCL -- I sure hope that's what Anonymous is saying. Hell, with a platform like that, I'd vote him/her/it into public office.

Besides, why in the world does a member of Hezbolah deserve respect or kind treatment? Alive or Dead?? What's wrong with you? Oh, wait, you're a liberal. I get it.

My feelings are that in the hopes of receiving similar treatment to our dead, we treat our enemies' bodies repectfully. HOWEVER, here we see a proven track record otherwise and no reason to assume our consideration would be reciprocated.

Besides, perhaps I just don't know, but where in jewish law does it demand us to treat our enemies bodies with respect? I'm curious. I'm not advocating dropping from helicopters, but as far as I'm concerned, bury them with a pig in an unmarked grave.

Liberals tend to insist that everything they believe is what it really says in the Torah and that conservatives just misconstrue it for their own immoral purposes.

If It were up to me, i'd drop hezbollah bodies from a helicopter while tied to a pig into an unmarked grave.
