According to the latest news reports, the Arab nations are pushing a peace plan to end the fighting in Lebanon. One key element — as in each prior proposal they have put forward — is the withdrawal of every single Israeli soldier from Lebanese soil as one of the first steps.
So far, Israel has refused each of these plans, saying they want a peacekeeping force in place before they withdraw to keep Hezbollah from simply moving back. But I’ve been thinking about it, and I think this current plan might have some merit.
I think that Israel ought to bring all its troops home immediately.
Starting with Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev.
If Hezbollah really wants all the Israeli soldiers out of Lebanon, then it has to begin with the two Hezbollah took into Lebanon against their will at the beginning of this whole mess.
I ran this by Laurence Simon. He said it was too common-sense to work.
I fear he might be right.
