UNIFIL, in its latest press release (today), boasts of providing veterinary care in South Lebanon. And in its Sept. 25 press release tells us of a man who was saved from drowning in the sea by an Italian ship that is part of the Interim Maritime Task Force (doing Israel’s bidding). I have no doubt that those who have received UNIFIL’s life-saving services are immensely grateful. But I do not see in the press releases anything about the kidnapping of more than a dozen journalists by Israeli soldiers yesterday.
But maybe if we repeat it often enough, we might believe it after all: what would we do without the UNIFIL?
