All due to US monopole policy challenging world community . US makes no consideration at all for Muslim world . How a country claiming democracy and human rights like US, support Nazi atrocities of Israel ? Where are world institutions and American people ?

Israeli bombs kill UN peacekeepers
By Adam Entous
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Israeli air raid in south Lebanon killed four U.N. military observers on Tuesday in an attack which United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan described as "apparently deliberate."
The deaths came on the eve of an international conference in Rome where Arab and some European nations are expected to call for an immediate end to the 14-day-old war over U.S. objections.
Earlier on Tuesday Israel vowed to pursue its war against Hizbollah and establish a no-go zone for the guerrillas in southern Lebanon until an international force arrives.
After meeting U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said both agreed that disarming Hizbollah and deploying a foreign force in its place were key to resolving the two-week-old crisis.
A total of 418 people in Lebanon and 42 Israelis have been killed in a conflict that erupted after Hizbollah abducted two Israeli soldiers in a July 12 cross-border raid.
U.N. officials said four military observers were killed when an Israeli bomb hit their base in southern Lebanon.
Annan asked Israel to conduct an investigation into the "apparently deliberate targeting" of the post.
Milos Strugar, spokesman for the UNIFIL peacekeeping force in Lebanon, said: "There were 14 other incidents of firing close to this position in the afternoon from the Israeli side and the firing continued during the rescue operation," he said.
HIZBOLLAH COMMANDER KILLED
On the battlefield inside southern Lebanon, Israeli troops and tanks fought Hizbollah in the guerrilla stronghold town of Bint Jbeil. Israel said it killed up to 30 fighters.
Israel said its troops shot dead senior Hizbollah commander Abu Jaafar near the Lebanese border village of Maroun al-Ras. The army said he commanded Hizbollah’s "central sector" on the Lebanese border.
