I agree Mike. I CAN'T STAND people who offer oppinions re the way to fight a battle from the comfort of their sofas. I especially HATE my fat fellow Americans, whose Jewishness consists of knowing how to say Shvatza and a fondness for Eastern European delicacies and who never spent a day in uniform, trying to tell Israel how to fight. If all those fat American Jews in Brooklyn made aliyah and went to the North and picked up a gun, we'd win in a flash. As it stands now, we are sending a very dangerous messsage to the Arabs: They will reason that if Hezbollah can do all this, Israel is no longer the great state she once was and the Arabs will join together -- and that could be the end. If Mubarek is overthrown... As to why this is happening, I don't have the time to explain, but in brief I believe the importation of American attitudes has only had the most vile consequences for the health and virility of Israeli society
