Hezbollah using human shields, mosques for attacks

What?!? I thought Hezbollah was a kind and caring "political" organization, since they build hospitals and schools and stuff! Boy, wait until the U.N. finds out about this! (pausing...) Are you done laughing yet? Me, too. Anywho, from Arutz Sheva:
Hizbullah refused to allow civilians to leave their village and used mosques in their ambush on IDF soldiers at Bint Jbeil Wednesday. Names of the nine fallen soldiers were released. Morale is high.

Hizbullah stored ammunition and weapons in mosques, knowing that the IDF does not attack religious sites. Civilians were not allowed to leave so that Hizbullah could use them as cover. IDF officers said they ordered pilots not to strafe Bint Jbeil in order to spare civilian casualties.

A United Nations peace keeping officer from Canada told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. that Hizbullah used the same tactic to draw fire on the UNIFIL post which resulted in the death of four U.N. observers. "This is their favorite trick," he said. "They use the U.N. as shields."
So much for those brave "freedom fighters" that Shehag and her ilk like to reference.

How terrorists fight vs. how the good guys fight
