    Israel doesn't belong in the Middle East. If it did, it wouldn't have needed the help of sympathetic Europeans and Americans to plant such a foreign object where it can't grow naturally. And if Jews, who are originally from Iraq, think that they deserve that strip of land because their imaginary friend, God, told them so, then anyone can make a claim to it. As for the current conflict, the world seems to have forgetten all the incursions Israel did in Gaza and Lebanon before their soldiers were captured. It seems to me like they used the kidnapping as an excuse to carry out a planned raid against Lebanon and the Palestinians. Well, with us Americans sinking in Iraq and Afghanistan; Israel doing the same in Lebanon and Gaza; and bringing in more Europeans to get that sinking feeling on the Lebanese border, I hope the political masters enjoy the show they have been putting on, because many will die and all we can do is be philosophical about it.
