See this page for links to articles on OpEdNEws that articulate both sides on the issues in the middle east. It is the goal of OpEdNews to air opinions from both sides to stretch the envelope of discussion and communication. Hate statements are not accepted. Discussions of issues and new ideas for solutions are encouraged. .
In its 16th day of this Middle-East conflict, global and local leaders who started this war, directly or indirectly (thro' the proxy war behind the real war) are doing what they are best at. They are speaking and showing their concern for a better world. In between around 400 Lebanese Civilians, 130 Palestinian Civilians and 18 Israeli Civilians died in the fight of the self-righteous rights.

Following is a list of often stated statements by our global (and local) leaders in these 16 days; and heard by the people who suffered, and continue to suffer expecting a ceasefire along with rest of us. These statements, along with their obvious meanings are given below:

What they say .................................... What they mean

'We are concerned...'......................................'Let the killing go on'

'Birth-pangs of a new middle-east...'...................'oh..err..a new-born eunuch of Bush-sustainability and terrorism'

'We want a sustainable peace...'....................'We will make the whole world look like present Lebanon, an unsustainable one with our Bush-democratization by destabilization. Middle-east would return to a sustainable peace when present Lebanon becomes the standard of peace for our world'.

'We will finish our job...'............................'We will kill more innocents'

'We'll enter the beyond Haifa stage'................'We'll escalate the war and we will kill more civilians'

'We won't accept a humiliating ceasefire...'..........'We prefer killing humanity than a ceasefire'

'Iran and Syria in the axis of evil'........................'Iran and Syria in Middle-East don't consider President Bush to be global president and Prime Minister Tony Blair to be global prime minister'.
