    Just like they do all the time, Israel tries to provoke Lebanon into another war by cutting a tree in Lebanon territory. The Israelis are famous for their provocation because they know that with U.S. supplied weapons they can destroy any power in the Middle East. We all know what the Israelis would've done if the Lebanese reached over and chopped down an Israeli tree. It was just last week that the Israelis shot and killed a Palestinian because he was too close to the border even though it was on the Gaza side of the border. Just go back to the days of Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan who even admitted that the capture of Syria's Golan Heights was an act provoked by the Israelis in order to attack and win the Golan Heights. Israeli soldiers fired on farmers on the land until finally one fired back. They easily captured this strategic land and still occupy it today. Now they are trying their best to make up for their embarrassing defeat by Hezbollah 4 years ago. This time they killed 4 Lebanese in hopes this will be enough for Hezbollah to make a move. Believe me, the Israelis live for one thing and one thing only, and that's for war. Is it any wonder that they were voted the "Biggest Threat to World Peace" in an European poll?
