FOOD FIGHT! James Taranto, in the Wall Street Journal’s Best of the Web, finds a slightly different kind of warfare going on in the Middle East:
The Lebanon Daily Star reports on the latest clashes between Israel and Hezbollah on the Israel-Lebanon border:
Israel’s Maariv daily reported Tuesday that Israeli soldiers based in the massive concrete compound on the summit of Sheikh Abbad Hill hurled eggs Monday at two Hizbullah fighters manning an observation post on the other side of the fence. . . .
The egg-throwing was preceded Saturday by four Lebanese hurling Ping Pong balls at the outpost. A few days earlier, a suspected Hizbullah member fired a paint gun through the fence at an Israeli soldier.
Good thing “zero tolerance” hasn’t come to the Middle East.
