Israel ignored events in Lebanon for too long, and the Second Lebanon War was meant to break that policy and restore Israel's power of deterrence, Defense Minister Amir Peretz said Sunday. Peretz said that it was possible to find fault with Israel's extended presence in Lebanon and its hasty withdrawal, but not with the soldiers' heroism. Peretz spoke at a memorial ceremony for soldiers who fell during the War for Peace in the Galilee.
