The output from your netfilter.sh script is being piped into the
standard kernel filter, which is probably ignoring them.

You probably need to add a new service named 'iptables' and tell the
kernel service to ignore those lines.  Alternatively, you colud enhance
the existing kernel filter to handle iptables.

Logwatch definitely needs iptables support, I just haven't had time :(
