This morning I was searching for info on the amazing discovery of a 9th Century Psalter in an Irish field (found it) and stumbled upon some suprisingly strong comments by the Irish Government relative to the war in Lebanon.

I guess Kofi isn’t alone in suggesting that the Israeli attack on the UN post was something less than accidental:

He [Irish Foreign Minister Dermot Ahern] said events during the conflict would lead one to believe that there was targeting of some of these areas or at least some reckless activity by the Israeli forces.

Earlier the Taoiseach [Prime Minister], Bertie Ahern, said he was appalled by the UN deaths and condemned the continuing use by Israel of reckless and disproportionate force.

You won’t hear that on Fox News…

UPDATE: The BBC reports: UN peacekeepers in south Lebanon contacted Israeli troops 10 times before an Israeli bomb killed four of them, an initial UN report says.
