arab: "as i understand from your narrative palestinians have no one to stand for them" When did I say that? But the Israelis have the world's only superpower standing by THEM, and has shaped its policies on the basis that this USA support is both unconditional and unquestioned. If the USA ever has reason to reassess that relationship then Israel will be in a world of trouble, but while it has the USA in its pocket then it can afford to drop its pants and slap its buttocks to the world, and there is only so much the world can do in reply. arab: "why not slaughter them and get done with it once and for all." It can't. It can't even power up the D9 bulldozers and *push* the arabs across the Jordan River. It could get away with that behavior in the dogfight that was 1948-49. But not now. It couldn't even start on such a thing before everyone - including the USA - stepped in and stopped her. Coz that WOULD be an act that would cause the USA to reassess its support.
