    In 1967, Israel didn't attack the West Bank until after Jordan attacked it,after Israel pleaded with the King not to enter the ware. It didn't start the war in 73. It invaded Lebanon in the first Lebanon war only after 1000s of Katushas had been fired at cvilians Kiryat Shemoneh over a period of years, and many terrorist attacks launched from Lebanon into Israel. It invaded it a second time in 2006 only after Lebanese forces invaded Israel and took three soldiers captive, and started launching missiles over the border again - and mind you this was after Israel had withdrawn from every inch of Lebanese soil as certified by the UN. It attacked Jenin in 2002 only after 1000s of Israelis had been killed and injured by suicide bombers, and it attacked Gaza in 2006 only after 8000 missiles had been fired at Sderot and the surrounding area and after Gazas had tunneled under the border, killed two soldiers, and captured Gilad Shalit, - once again after it had withdrawn from every inch of Gaza. It's true that we blew up some nuclear facilities in the Middle East, but we didn't attack civilians, and quite frankly I think most of our neighbors would agree that the neighborhood is a safer place without them. (Imagine what would happen if Al Quida in Iraq or in Syria managed to get their hands on a nuke). It's also true that we blew up some missiles in Syria on their way to Lebanon. That was probably uncalled for, but if Assad was in control of things we probably wouldn't have felt we had to do it, and neither of these cases were 'Zionist agression' against the Palestinians. So I'm wondering which 'Zionist aggression' you're referring to. (Not the settlements, I presume, as this is the very issue that peace negotiations over where the borders are will resolve.)
