    I think that the Iran regime is the biggest danger here. That Iran is influence peddling and that Syria is key for them to get through to Hizbullah and maybe Hamas (Haniyeh was in Teheran recently) Weth Iraq's situation on the boil,Iran is pushing. The anti thesis is America and remember the Saudis made a peace initiative and also criticized hizbullah for their action against Israel. Syria maybe dancing at both weddings now but are startegically placed to stop Irans influence or enhance it. Syria is making overtures to Israel.Is it real? If it is it will smack Hamas between the eyes. It is also true that both kidnappings happened around the same time.Coincidence or Iran's pushing? So it seems that there is this Iran (regime)against America with the sunnis afraid of the shiites I think. These people dont just make speeches like that. there is a lot going on now. I also think that israels moves with Fatah are cosmetic for both.Its to marginalize hamas further.
