End of the Second Lebanon War

Two years and four days after it broke out, as Yaron Dekel of Israel Radio just said, "The Second Lebanon War has just ended."

Hizbollah just handed over two black coffins to the Israelis at Rosh Ha-Nikra, on the border between Israel and Lebanon. The Hizbollah spokesman announced, "Here are Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser." He was asked - "Are they alive or dead?" He said: "Now you will know their fate."

The Israelis will now proceed with making sure that these are indeed the bodies of Regev and Goldwasser, and when they do so, they will hand over to Hizbollah Samir Kuntar and the other Lebanese terrorists.

An article in today's New York Times says, "Hezbollah has said it carried out the 2006 raid in a bid to win the release of Mr. Kuntar, whom Hezbollah celebrates as a hero. Past attempts to secure his release include the hijacking of the Achille Lauro cruise ship in 1985."
