Don't lose sight of the fact that Israel is still technically at war with both Lebanon and Syria. Peace Treaties were never signed with them as was done with Egypt (1979) and Jordan (1994). Israel cutting off the supply of long range weapons to Hezbollah makes perfect sense to me......... as it should to you. It seems to me Israel is preventing a war escalation not provoking one.
