So much for the 48-hour cease fire.
Lebanese fled north in overflowing trucks and cars Monday, taking advantage of a lull in Israeli bombardment.
Israel's prime minister took a tough line, apologizing for the deaths of dozens of Lebanese civilians in a single strike but declaring there will be no cease-fire.
"There is no cease-fire, there will be no cease-fire," he said. "We are determined to succeed in this struggle. We will not give up on our goal to live a life free of terror."
This begs the question why Lebonese and Palestinians can't have the same goal, to live a life free of terror.
