Cluster Bombs in Lebanon

First it was white phosphorus; now the IDF admits to using cluster bombs in civilian areas:
"The Israel Defense Forces on Monday admitted for the first time to having targeted populated areas with cluster munitions during the recent war in Lebanon.

"The IDF Spokesman's Office said in a statement that 'the use of cluster munitions against built-up areas was done only against military targets where rocket launches against Israel were identified and after taking steps to warn the civilian population.'

"The IDF discovered that there had been "irregularities" in the use of cluster munitions, even before the end of the recent Lebanon war, sources in the defense minister's office said Monday."

It seems all my recent posts related to the Arab-Israeli conflict have been to condemn people. Will somebody besides these guys please do something I can support?
