BRUSSELS, Belgium - The European Union on Thursday criticized Israel for using what it called "disproportionate" force in its attacks on Lebanon following Wednesday's raid by Hezbollah guerillas who killed eight Israel Defense Forces soldier and abducted two soldiers.

"The European Union is greatly concerned about the disproportionate use of force by Israel in Lebanon in response to attacks by Hezbollah on Israel," according to a statement issued by Finland which holds the EU's rotating presidency. "The presidency deplores the loss of civilian lives and the destruction of civilian infrastructure. The imposition of an air and sea blockade on Lebanon cannot be justified."

According to the calculus of the EU, Israel should carefully take an inventory of its dead and missing, the damage caused by rockets and terror, and bring a spreadsheet to the World Court to gain approval of causing the exact same amount of damage to those who attacked it. That way the EU is happy and won't complain any more.

Of course, when Israel hits back in a proportionate manner, that just perpetuates the "cycle of violence" that so concerns the world, so Israel must, in addition to calculating the damage, exercise "maximum restraint." Which means that Israel shouldn't make any aggressive moves at all towards those who try their hardest to destroy Israel. Restraint means Israelis should hide in their bomb shelters and wait for Hizbollah to run out of ammunition.

To be fair, Hizbollah was also asked to act with restraint by the EUeenies. Since we all know the vast amounts of respect that Hizbollah has towards Christian Europe, we can rest assured that they will drop everything and free the prisoners as they were asked.

And for Euridiots to actually say that one side is wrong and the other side is right would make their heads explode. In these sophisticated times, everyone is equally at fault, unless Israel does something unilaterally, of course. Morality is relative, don't you know. "One man's terrorist" and all that.

Wars must be fair, you see. The Eurodopes say that if the Arabs kill three Jews, Israel can kill 3 Arabs. Let the Muslims kill, say, 6 million Israelis, and then the Israelis would have some justification to kill 6 million Muslims - in the most humane way possible. Just as long as they don't kill any civilians, destroy any infrastructure or buildings, or make too much noise that could keep some kids awake at night. That would be cruel.
