I-40 Israel... itching for a fight.... yet deny being aggressive

Israeli planes stage mock raids BEIRUT, Lebanon - Israeli fighter jets staged mock raids over Hezbollah strongholds in Beirut and two southern towns on Tuesday in the heaviest show of air power over Lebanon since an August cease-fire ended the war between Israel and the guerrillas.....The Israeli military refused to confirm that its planes had flown over Beirut or other areas, saying it does not release details of military operations.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Jean-Baptiste Mattei said in Paris, "We call on Israel to put an end to these overflights and we call on all partners to refrain from any act that could maintain or increase tension."

The operation also came a few hours before Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah was scheduled to appear on a Lebanese television channel.... Nasrallah has been in hiding since the Israeli offensive began in July, appearing in public only once, on Sept. 22, to give a speech at a Hezbollah "victory rally." Israeli officials have threatened to assassinate him.

It's the old double standard GOLDEN RULE again.. "do as I say, don't do as I do", as Israel sees nothing wrong with its official decree to assassinate another countries political leader.. yet would deem the same action against them as a act of terrorism...
