And as far as Israel becoming more and more isolated, the world is run by power politics. Whoever has the cards, gets the gravy. Russia can flatten Chechnya, but Europe needs is oil and gas. China can commit slow cultural genocide in Tibet, but it's the second most powerful country in the world now. And the world can pay lip service to the Palestinians -- possibly the greatest cry babies in human history who start wars, lose, than wail over the injustice -- but Israel is one of the world's great centers of technology and learning, while the Palestinians offer falafel -- and the threat of resuming airplane hijackings.
