Would it be possible for you to read a history book? Israel has never "initiated" any war. The only possible exception is the 6 day war in 1967 when several Arab countries were preparing an attack and Israel made a pre-emptive strike. However, you will not find even one legitimate historian who will say that these nations were not going to attach Israel. Iran is not only rattling its sabre, but is the money and force behind the war in S. Iraq. Without their support, there would already be peace there. Iran is now threatening the USA and the extinction of "the Zionist entity". It does not recognize Israel as a sovereign nation. It is not looking to liberate Lebanon, Syria or "Palestine". It's stated goal is to remove Israel from the map. It's other goal is to make you Tom covert to Islam. Hope you've bought your copy of the Koran...with your point of view, you'll need it sooner than you think.
