"Abducted soldier's brother: War failed main goal - to free troops"

By Aluf Benn, Jack Khoury and Amos Harel, Haaretz Correspondents

"Dear Prime Minister," the petition reads, "you may have managed to forget, but the reason Israel waged the [Lebanon] war was not the presence of Hezbollah militants along the Israel-Lebanon border, but in fact it was Hezbollah's abduction of two soldiers from the 8110 battalion!"

Speaking of managing to forget, let's also not forget that Hezbollah's abduction of those two soldiers took place across the border in southern Lebanon, so let's please try not to forget that either, despite the incredibly successful efforts of the Israeli media squad to make us forget, primarily by bullying the press.

Apart from the above July 12th article from Forbes, you can also read a short announcement here, from the Bahrain News Agency.
