According the polls, initial support for Israel declined during the Lebanon war but sharply increased afterwards in the USA and especially in Europe. It is true that "some" and only some are blaming Israel for the Iraq war. But, not only are these only some people, more importantly, they are flatly wrong. And Jewish groups have been at the forefront of opposing the war in Iraq. It seems far more likely that the fact that Saddam tried to assassinate our president's dad...and that Bush sr's failure to win the first war in Iraq is widely seen as the reason that he is humiliated as the only one term president since Carter...are the "real" irrational reasons our president was itching to attack Iraq. And let's not forget that Saddam WANTED us to think he had wmd. He thought it would deter us. He was wrong. Heck, worldwide pretty much everyone thought he had wmds. The debate was not "whether" he had them but whether to give sanctions more time. And Iran is more than just "Israel's problem."
