Israelis must be the easiest people in the world to stampede into ill advised and inappropriate hostility. The reason for this is obvious. America has pumped the unwise Israelis full of steroids and stands nearby to get the Israelis out of jams. because of this Israel is not restricted to the normal procedures that are observed by other nations. Eventually this behavior will get Israel into trouble from which even America cannot extricate them.
