I wouldn't be so cocky if I were you, sure there might not be NATO aircraft flying over Gaza shooting down Israelis in American donated fighters.

Elections in Germany, not in between administrations in the US like the last time As we saw with the massacre on the flotilla Israel is on the ropes and can't do what it use to do with impunity, ever since Cast Lead there have been a steady stream of IDF soldiers going through the courts as the Israeli political and military elite desperately try to avoid The Hague, Livni been to tea recently?
