#4 the lesson Israel is taking away from the blood-letting in Syria is that the international community cannot be relied upon to intervene when needed
Plus there's several years decades of history...

#5 'We Could Destroy Parts Of Lebanon To Stop Rockets'
Sounds good to me, when will you start?
In fact level the place, there's been far more than "ENOUGH" from these Noisy little girls.

#6 I would quietly tell the Hezbullies that the first rocket fired at my country would result in a nuclear holocaust that would totally devastate Lebanon for all time. I would also tell the UN "peacekeepers" that if they're there when the shooting starts, "so sorry, GI". As for Gaza, I'd tell Hama$$ that it's time to either act peacefully, or be destroyed, along with every structure in the Gaza strip. I'd tell them that we'd first bomb them to rubble, then bulldoze the rubble into the ocean. I'd also explain to Egypt that Cairo was in range of my nuclear missiles. As for the West Bank, I wouldn't issue a warning, I'd just start bulldozing it flat. I definitely wouldn't have the patience to put up with this crap for twenty years, like Israel has.
The number of Israeli citizens that have emigrated to the country is decreasing, while the number of native-born is constantly increasing. That's going to change how many of them think. I'm sure most of them already have a severe dislike for the Arabs trying to kill them. Turning the tables won't bother them much. The Arabs should begin to realize this, and act accordingly, but they won't. It takes 500 years for ANYTHING to penetrate their thick heads.
