The northern border crises is a result of the radical "left" in Israel giving in to "the radical left" international pressure so that their buddies "the radical islamists" could station thousands of rockets on Israel's northern border. Lives could be saved on both sides, if everybody stands up against their radicals in the name of the "rule of law". Up against the Syrian dominance, the Lebanese govt. has no ability to meet the demands of Israel, that is to control the Lebanese border. Therefore, it is Israel's sole responsibility to so by getting rid of aggressive forces at the border, a responsibility which it has failed to meet. This failure ,which began with Barak running with his tail between his legs, predictably, has resulted in the present crises. Gaza is the mirror image of this.
