Let's contrast Iran and Israel: 1. Iran last initiated a war in 1856; Israel has initiated four since 1948; 2. Iran is not brutally occupying a neighboring people; Israel has kept the Palestinians under an iron heel for 40 years; 3. Iran is not making bombastic threats against a neighbor; the Israeli press reeks daily with cries by Israeli ministers for another attack on Lebanon because Hizbollah would not roll over and play dead the first time around. No one weeps for a bully, and Israel is certainly that.
