Israelis End Unilateral Ceasefire (UPDATED)

From the Associated Press:

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes in southern Lebanon on Monday, hours after agreeing to temporarily halt raids while investigating a bombing that killed nearly 60 Lebanese civilians, mostly women and children seeking shelter.
The quick resumption of aerial operations suggests that the Israeli investigation found exactly what The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler suggested: that Qana was a staged event, arranged by Hizballah for a credulous world press to lap up. The building in Qana was attacked between midnight and 1 AM local time, and collapsed seven to eight hours later, plenty of time for Hizballah to stuff the building with civilians, living or dead, then bring it down.

Update: Via Flopping Aces, AJ at The Strata-Sphere runs down the evidence pointing to a hoax by Hizballah, notably, "victims" already displaying rigor mortis and a strange absence of blood.
