    When the subjetc is the State of Israel, I often try to keep my cool because nowdays here in Europe there is a stronger moviment of demonization of Israel and the Jews in general. People can deny it, but it is true. In general Israel is single out among other nations and we have double standards when it comes to Israel. Needless to say what is going on in Chechenia and the murderous silence of Europe, especially France and Germany. It is a shame, but it is true. However regarding this subject today, I really think that Israel is overreacting. So Russia is selling wepaons to Syria, what is the big deal? We in Europe want to sell weapons to China, no matter how terrible and disgraceful is the human rights there. Syria is a State and its has the right to defend itself. If Syria uses those weapons against Israel, Israel has all the rights and even the obligation to defend itself. If Syria attacks Israel, so Israel relaliate with full force, as any country in Europe will do. It will be State against State. If they attack you they know that there is a high price to be paid. So, please relax and enjoy your festive holidays! Chag Sameach! Peter
