So the facts are that Israel fired the first shot and calls it "preemptive strike on Egypt and Syria". And all this was based on intelligence from one person. Sounds like Bush's WMD scenario. I remember from the movie "Thirteen Days", where the military wanted to go to war, and Kennedy had the guts to listen to calmer voices. It's clear that Israel has been listening to it's Generals far too much. No wonder the Arab States see Israel from a totally different view.
