Evidence is coming to light that shows that this is indeed the case.

During last years war between Israel and the Lebanese people the Israeli Air Force (IAF) were provided with targets that had nothing to do with diminishing the ability of Israel’s stated enemy to strike back at Israel. Many of these targets were small and medium sized Lebanese industrial businesses that were manufacturing products for the global and regional market – a market that Israeli businesses were also competing in.

An Australian-Lebanese businessman that has recently returned from an investigative visit to Lebanon armed with a documentary film unit has evidence that indicates that many of the small and medium sized businesses that were hit by the Israel Air Force in Lebanon were deliberately targeted for reasons that seem to indicate that Israel wished to destroy, not so much the Lebanese industrial sector because it was in some way aiding Hizbollah efforts, but solely because they were a threat to Israeli commercial interests. In virtually all instances where businesses, particularly manufacturing businesses, were destroyed or badly damaged, there was no evidence to suggest that their destruction or damage was because of collateral damage due to them being close to any target that could have been construed as offensive to the Israelis.

A Lebanese cousin of the Australian-Lebanese businessman had, with other family members who had pooled some several million dollars of their resources, built and operated a high-tech business manufacturing innovative medical supplies. The business was remotely located in an olive grove that belonged to one of the family stakeholders. After all the hard work and effort the entire project was totally destroyed in an instant when it was hit by Israeli air force bombs and missiles.

Amnesty International in their initial report of the conflict, published 23 August 2006, noted that some 900 ‘commercial enterprises were hit’.

Since the Israeli’s stated war aims was to retrieve two arrested soldiers and to destroy Hizbollah it seems incongruous that Israel’s air force would need to deliberately target a remotely situated medical supplies manufacturing business that were involved in no activities that could in any way be construed as a threat, directly or indirectly, to the Israelis.

This report will be developed further when the supporting evidence is made available for publication.

It is truly a travesty that this has been allowed to happen.

Israel is the scourge of the modern world.

Israel wants every Arab dead, not just the businessmen. Only Israel benefits from these endless Middle East wars. Iraq is the beginning. As we commit war-crimes in Baghdad, the US gov't commits treason at home by opening mail, eliminating habeas corpus, using the judiciary to steal private lands, banning books like "America Deceived" from Amazon and Wikipedia, conducting warrantless wiretaps and engaging in illegal wars on behalf of AIPAC's 'money-men'. Soon, another US false-flag operation will occur (sinking of an Aircraft Carrier by Mossad) and the US will invade Iran.. Then we'll invade Syria, then Saudi Arabia, then Lebanon (again) then ....

anyone who follows israeli atrocities with any regularity can come to only one conclusion:

israel wants to monopolize every natural resource in the region and will stop at nothing - including genocide - to achieve it.

Your post reminded me of something I read in August of last year. It toook me about half an hour to find it, but here it is;

Sorry, here is that link in clickable form

This information bears out a suspicion I had. While this war was made in Washington, and even senior Israeli commanders were not clear on its aims, they were determined to make the most of it in destroying a reborn Lebanon.
(see e.g my comment at
Rebuilt Beirut was seen as a business capacitor, and that's why even Israel's erstwhile allies were not safe.

For some reason the word competitor appears as "capacitor" in my comment. Strange things happen in ctberspace, but hope this did not confuse!

Charlie Pottins, many thanks for your contribution, and a big thanks also to anonymous who supplied the link to beirutlive; I had not come across that before. Both are important contributions toward building up the bigger geo-political picture of what's really going on in that suffering part of the world.

Beneath the covers you and I
Made love as though it were a crime,
Furtive caresses given by
A truer love than paradigm.

Yet, being both beneath the age
When statutes held enforcement there,
Our sins were tallied on no page
Nor noted by state courtier.

Today beneath the pretext of
National goodness, you and I
Send soldiers off to war´s remove
Instructing them to kill and die.

We are too old to have to go
And, in glib virtue well-ensconced
The guile and greed we scarcely know
With which war´s aims have been pronounced.
