Most Israelis are not war hungry or trigger happy. However, reality that hits you on the head is very difficult to ignore. And in this case genuflection is suicide. It is naive to think that 5 million people subjected to Hezbollah rocket fire, marching on Knesset to demand peace would produce the desired result. 5 million unarmed Israelis marching on Damascus wouldn't do it nor the same number marching toward Beirut would do it. Syrians need to march on Damascus to demand peace from its Government. Lebanese need to do it in Beirut. Iranians need to demand it from Tehran. Palestinians need to demand it from Ramallah. Then, the voice of Israel's 5 million peaceniks will be heard in Jerusalem.
