Abduction story[edit]

"Israeli families and official also accused individuals in the UN force of aiding the abduction." This seems only as an unproven claim. Who has revealed what about UN involvement in this case? Jakro64 22:31, 21 Nov 2004 (UTC)

The story was put forth by the families of killed soldiers and implied by some members of the press. According to a partisan web site on the matter (and there are many), an Indian peacekeeper also claimed in a radio interview that UNIFIL cooperated with the abduction. Suspicion was also caused by the UN's denial of posession of a video filmed by Indian peacekeepers a day after the abduction, which it later admitted to having and turned over (as mentioned). A UN investigation has found the accusations to be false but the families are unconvinced and suing the UN. Even if one rejects the UN story, it is not clear what the motive would have been in aiding Hizballah since, according to the UN-drawn Blue Line, Hizballah is attempting to wrongfully claim Israeli terrirory.

The claim wasnt aiding the abduction itself.the claim was: 1. Knowing the UN have video on every post it must have one were the abduction took place. The UN denied at first, only after a long time it was givin to israel. 2. The indian peacekeepers saw the abduction (hizballah fired a missile on the army-car then crossed the border took the soldiers and went back inside lebanon, it took aprox. 10-20 min. if not more) and just stood aside.they didnt warned the terrorist nor fired upon them. later it was discoverd that the indian peacekeepers were afraid, hiding in the guard-post, they witnessed the abduction not lifting a finger. which causes israel to set free more then 400 palestinians terrorist for the bodies. 02 Apr 2006



Operation Peace for Galilee vs 1982 Lebanon War[edit]

At this article (and I think that at many others), Wikipiadians replace the term "Operation Peace for Galilee" at the term "1982 Lebanon War" with summaries like NPOV. These terms are not equivalent! The Operation Peace for Galilee refer here (and maybe at the others) to the three initial months of the war (This is the period of the Operation), so the article after the replacing contains less information.

Conversion to gallery[edit]

I suggest moving all the equipment (mostly bulldozer) images in this article to a gallery section. This is because they have nothing to do with the sections they're in right now and there's no equipment section (which would be too small to host such a gallery anyway). -- Ynhockey (Talk) 16:42, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
