    1. I disagree with the idea that a peace treaty between Israel and Syria means Syria will abandon its' alliance with Iran and Hezbollah. Instead once Syria has the Golan then Lebanon and Hezbollah become even more important as tools of the resistance. 2. I can not see how Israel could enforce an arms embargo against Hezbo if Syria agreed to one and then continued to ship arms anyway. There is no reason for Syria to enforce such an embargo and every reason to arm Hezbo. If Syria breaks the treaty in this way, will Israel re-invade the Golan?! 3. Iran will never concede in its' aim of Israels destruction. Hezbo will never let Lebanon make peace with Israel. Hezbo will never dismantle their missile arsenal. Those missiles are going to be used it is just a matter of when. 4. Without a major regime change in Iran, Hezbo and Hamas will continue to grow in strength until they are used in a proxy war. Any future Israeli victory may be a Pyrrhic one as Israelis cities and airbases are shattered and deaths are in the tens, if not hundreds, of thousands. The longer Israel waits the larger the death toll. 5. War with Iran, not peace, is inevitable and the only question becomes how much stronger Iran, Hezbo, and Hamas become before Israel is forced to take action. 6. The real threat is not the nuclear arsenal but the missile arsenal. In one year how many more thousands of missiles will Israel have to face?! Divide and conquer - Go after Hezbo and destroy those missiles, then deal with Iran. 7 The need for preemption is evident and the threat to Israel is comparable to that of 1967. Then Israel struck hard and fast to destroy enemy air forces on the ground. This time those missiles need to be destroyed before too many of them fly.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they are not lying.

The greatness of the late Israeli actor stems from the fact that her own unique persona informed the credibility of all the characters she played.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
