Juan Berenger (or Senor Smoke, as he was called), was one of my favorite pitchers during the 1980s and 1990s. Throwing in late relief, he became a big part of the 1987 Minnesota Twins World Series Team. He was a hefty, long-haired Panamanian, and quite intimidating on the mound.
Berenger could throw a 100 mph fastball, and his pitching was, as manager Tom Kelly often said approvingly, "conveniently wild", which meant he never intentionally beaned opposing players, it just happened in the natural course of things.
"Conveniently Wild" is a term to keep in mind when thinking about Israel's response to the Hezobllah/Hamas border incursions, and the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers. When you fire at a missile at or drop a bomb on residential area containing a militant presence, you won't kill many militants. In fact, in this case its a particularly ineffective means of killing militants, since they seem to be employing "shoot and scoot" tactics--firing off a couple of rockets or mortars, and then heading to another area. Given the nature of the weaponry used, you are much more likely to create "collateral damage". Dead Lebanese Canadians, for example.
And the Isaeli Military knows this. In fact, one can assume that it is the point of the exercise: to deliberately use a weapon that is ineffective upon its intended target, but great at creating random slaughter. The "convenient wildness" allows you to achieve a particular end (the intimidation of batters or, in this case, the Lebanese populace), while offering a moral backdoor by which to evade responsibility for the act.
See? Baseball is just like Life.
