    Israel has chosen to both deny and censor the real consequence of the French action. The number of missiles and the system they would be deployed upon indicate that his is nothing but a symbolic action. What requires the censorship of Israeli is the FACT that this indicates that France is no longer going to subject Lebanon, or it's foreign policy to the control of Israel. Israel will no longer be able to demand France will not provide weapons to Lebanon that Israel demands not be provided to the government of Lebanon. The entire rest of he World, Including Syria and Iran, want to avoid the destabilization of Lebanon now. ONLY Israel wants to see Lebanon descend into a civil war which would justify an Israeli invasion. Get the point Israel. Do not invade Lebanon just because Neaanyahu wants you to do so. The world - the ENTIRE WORLD - does not want israel to start a war with Lebanon. ONLY Israel wants to start a war right now. Do so Israel, no matter how much your Leader Netanyahu wants to - unless you are willing to be condemned by the entire world.
