    Melissa, I get your point and I also get annoyed with Netanyahu talking in the usual Israel-brainwash terms "everybody is against us, but we can do it all alone", etc. However, every situation is different in this idiotic part of the world, see message 42. What Iran is trying to do (over 1000nds of dead bodies) is to empower Hizbollah in such a way that every attack against Iran can be followed by maximal damage on Israel. Hizbollah are NOT the same as the poor Palestinians, look them up on the internet. The Israeli attacks serve to minimise Iranian leverage on Israel. You can be sure the US military is secretly ok with these attacks. Many Palestinians also hate Assad and although Israel's occupation policy is now a disaster for both sides, honest Palestinians will admit that what is happening in Syria is far, far worse than anything Israel has ever done to any civilian population (look up the numbers to verify this for yourself).

Netanyahu trades Israel's democracy for a shtetl with German submarines
