    Daniele, all you are doing is repeating untenable propaganda. Israel started a war in 1956, and did so again in 1967. It went to war in 1982, and it went to war again in 2006. On every occassion Israel CHOSE to go to war. On every occassion Israel was facing provocation from hostile and unfriendly neighbors - no disputing that - but in every single case the OTHER SIDE was not attempting a war; they were attempting border clashes, provocations, artillery duels, and all the other sundery niggles and pokes and shoves that happen ALL THE TIME between neighbors who are not friendly with each other. But Israel CHOOSE war in each case. It escalated INDICENTS into WAR. That was Israel's choice, Daniele, in every single case. Have a look at other hot spots around the world; India/Pakistan, Noth/South Korea, and you'll it has to go WAY, WAY beyond that sort of niggle before it gets to war. But not Israel; poke her with a stick and its WAR, coz it's ruled by warmongers.
