I have worked here in the ME for 15 yrs and understand when a Muslim threatens or brags it's simply words. When push comes to shove, generally, nothing happens. Iran will be happy to incite others to fight Israel, others that actually have a cause. Iran has NEVER started a war so theres no reason to think they'll start one now. Isreal doesn't start wars either but provokes their neighbors into starting one. Much was made of Hez crossing the border into a "soverign" state to grab the soldiers. NOTHING was made of Israels DAILY violation of Lebanons airspace the past six years. Is Lebanon not a soverign nation? Israel NEVER complies with UN resolutions but insist other countries must. Whats wrong with this picture? I have been called anti semitic. Is it anti semitism to expect Isreal to be subject to the same int'l laws as the rest of the world? Iran is currently NOT in violation of Int'l law Isreal is. i.e. return of refugees, illegal settlements, annexing land taken in war. etc.
