Central Beirut under attack!

The Israeli Air Force is now attacking central Beirut and Christian areas. They just bombed the lighthouse on Corniche al-Manara (next to the American University Beirut), the port of Jounieh (a Christian town) and the port of Tripoli. They want the Christians to rise up against Hezbollah. I think they don't mind if they start a civil war in the process. For the time being, the Christians' and Beirutis' anger will be directed at Israel. An older gentleman next to me just said he opposed the kidnapping of the soldiers and doesn't like Hezbollah, but he is supporting them against the Israelis.
