In its pronouncements on the war, Hezbollah appears to have taken a leaf from Baghdad Bob’s public relations book.

The commandos nevertheless apparently returned to Israel unharmed with five prisoners. The brief Jerusalem Post story on the raid quotes Prime Minister Olmert as saying that “tasty fishes” were among those seized.
