The conflict between Israel and Hezbollah is moving into its third week and many are criticizing Israel for aggressive tactics used on the field of battle. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t pretend to understand all the subtle nuances of the conflict, nor the complex history involved; however, from an overly simplistic point of view, I did find one recent political cartoon noteworthy.
The image depicts two fighters, kneeling across from each other. One represents the Israeli Defense Force, the other, Hezbollah. Both are aiming weapons at the other. The part that caught my eye was seeing the Israeli fighter kneeling in front of a baby carriage Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ while the Hezbollah fighter kneels behind one.
Regardless of the position one may take, this image speaks volumes to the sanity of it all.
