Possible Insight On Why Hezbollah Kidnapped Soldiers

Today I spoke with my good friends mother. I was looking forward to this talk because she is Lebanese and has always had a fair and moderate view of Middle East politics. She has always been quick to condemn all forms of terrorism done in the name of Islam. In addition she always seems to have juicy inside information on certain Lebanese issues and this issue was no different. According to her the leader of Hezbollah, Sheikh Nasrallah, made a sworn promise to a Druze family, expressing he would return their son who had been taken prisoner by Israel. According to her, in order to make due on his promise he kidnapped these Israeli soldiers in hopes that Israel would do a prisoner swap as they had done in the past. As we now know, things didn't go as he planned.
