    Not only with Syria and Hezbollah but with the entire Middle East and the rest of the World. Israel is the only aggressor here. Israel is the only one doing the attacking claiming it has a right to self defense. These other nations also have a right to defend themselves...primarily against Israel who demands it be the only armed state in the Middle East. It is a ridiculous position for Israel to take. No nation in the Middle East should need to worry that if it buys weapons for defense like Israel does(given by the US), that it is going to be attacked by Israel. Last time I looked Hezbollah were part of the Lebonese govt. Lebanon has suffered enormous damage to its civilian population caused by Israel. Palestinians have suffered enormous damage to its civilians caused by Israel. One has to admire the tolerance of the Arab States and Iran. Israel acts like an unruly schoolchild in need of discipline. Israel will harvest the storm for the wind it has sown. Its guaranteed. The People of the Middle East are not going to sit and wait for one of them to be Israels next target should the desire strike Israel to attack them. Other World nations need to put pressure on Israel to end the Occupation and illegal settlements,to withdraw from Palestinian territory and to abide by International Law and cease violating Sovereign Borders of other Nations. America needs to cease supporting the obvious Rogue State that Israel is. No-one is interested in Israels justifications of self defense anymore...Israel is the aggressor.
