I think there are forces in the world that have nothing really to do with either Lebanon or Israel, and which neither can control. It's naive to think that they can and equally naive to blame them. The problems you're seeing now began decades ago, when the Ottoman Empire was attacked by Britain. It's been complicated by various Islamist factions and philosophies, sectarian violence, and the creation of nation-states out of an empire where tribal and sectarian loyalties are still powerful, and which threaten the very idea of the state. There's little tolerance for minorities, let alone empowered minorities like Lebanon's Christians or Israel's Jews. And there was the Cold War, which caused proxy wars, heavy armament of factions, and also the influence of the Nazis, which is still felt today. There are no easy answers. But I do know this: putting the onus on Israel to solve problems created long before Israel existed, and which are regional, isn't productive.
