Let`s contrast Iran and Israel: 1. Iran last initiated a war in 1856; Israel has initiated four since 1948; TOM, BOY DO YOU HAVE HISTORY MESSED UP! 2. Iran is not brutally occupying a neighboring people; Israel has kept the Palestinians under an iron heel for 40 years; NO, IRAN JUST BRUTALISES ITS OWN PEOPLE, KEEPING THEM UNDER AN IRON HILL. 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, IRAN PREFERS TO OTHER STATES WITH ANIHILATION. No one weeps for a bully, and Israel is certainly that. I WEEP FOR A MISGUIDED INDIVIDUAL WITH BLINKERS ON.
