    Israel used to be a bright, intelligent country with a future. Somwhere along the line it's lost its way and become a place where it's governments tend to rely on violence and arrogance to try to solve their country's problems. This killing is an example of that, but it's the latest of a long line of incidents where Israel has thought that ignoring the world's advice and using aggression would work. And it hasn't. Sadly it's worldwide fan club, well-represented on here, just encourage it on this ultimately self-destructive course. Personally I don't mind Al-Mhabouh being killed but doing it isn't going to save Israel. Through Lebanon 2, Cast Lead, sofa-gate etc. Israel's international standing is dropping all the time. Israel is turning itself into a pariah, rogue state and eventually the world will say 'Enough'. In the meantime it and its fans just mouth off at anyone and any country who has the temerity to criticise perfect can-do-no-wrong Israel. 'How dare they criticise Israel!'
