August 7, 2006 09:52

MK Effi Eitam (NU-NRP) on Monday morning characterized the fighting in Lebanon as "a war over our right to live in this region." In an interview with Army Radio, Eitam said, "We must not end this war in exchange for a dubious cease-fire as long as the neighborhood bully is still standing." "We must overcome the trauma of the Lebanon war," he added, responding to fears that Israel could get stuck in a counterinsurgency war in Lebanon. "The real mud we're stuck in is the blood-soaked mud in northern Israel."
