    (1) Arab terror is from a small minority. (Agreed.) (2) Then people dance in the streets! (Some do. Girls also write nice things to their Lebanese ?friends? on Israeli bombs. Read these forums. Every day, Israeli posters chortle with joy when egging on the IDF to kill more Palestinians. No one here complains much. It doesn?t make news headlines) (3) Terrorist hamas is elected. (The elections were democratic, insisted on by the US and Israel. Not obtaining the required result, all funds were cut off, the government shut down, a one year ceasefire by Hamas broken, and negotiations destroyed. (4) Hitz is supported by Syria and Iran. (Hezbollah is not, according to the EEC and also to Dennis Ross, a terrorist organisation. It is supported by Syria and Iran, true. It is also supported by the Shiite majority in the South, for whom it provides basic infrastructure) (5) (Iran and Syria) are not respecting UN resolution. (Disputable but probable. Neither is Israel Israel has refused to respect over 70 UN Resolutions, Iraq was invaded for not respecting 16. Syria respected the terms of the UN resolution to withdraw from occupied Lebanon. Iran has only a few instances of same). (6) Lebanon who accepted armed hitz in the south against UN resolution (Badly phrased and false if it means what I think it means) (7) Iran is of course today the danger for all Arbs & Jews (Khomeini suspended the Shah?s work on the French-assisted nuclear research programme. He withdrew his veto when Iran was invaded by Iraq. Part of the technology came from A.Khan in Pakistan, who developed the ?Islamic? bomb for that state. No one is troubled by Pakistan, which is recognized as perhaps the greatest area in islam for fundamentalist madrassas. Israel has over 200 atom bombs, some, I hear now on submarine missiles. Iran as yet has none) (8) Ahmadinejad wants to develop a nuclear capability. (No. The government has worked towards that end. Israel set the precedent for atomic bombs in the ME, in violation of UN resolutions)
