parallels to 1982 Lebanon

Just a note that the current state of affairs in Lebanon has some parallels to the 1982 "Operation Peace of the Galilee."

There is even the parallel that the UN, favoring terrorists was already rewriting history

On 10 July 1981, after a period of peace, violence erupted
inSouth Lebanon. According to the U.N. Secretary-General, the
Israeli air force bombarded Palestinian targets in south Lebanon, and later that
day Palestinian elements fired artillery and rockets into northern Israel.
However, according to the Federal Research Division of theLibrary of
, "Israel responded to PLO rocket attacks on northern Israeli
settlements by bombing PLO encampments in southern Lebanon."

I remember that day. The news reported the attacks by the PLO and several hours later had a breaking news story showing the Israeli AF retaliation in Lebanon.
