#1 The Arab world is sliding into a choatic multi-sided Sunni-Shiia-Salafist war, so one more pretext to riot isn't going to make much difference.

#2 "an Israeli attack would bring the entire Islamic-Arab world out into the streets.
As opposed to throwing rocks or sitting on the curb and seething.

#3 Let's see now, Israel's neighbors currently offer barely concealed hostility or outright acts of war, and the peace agreement with Egypt is collapsing by the day. Not doing anything means the Iranians acquire the capability to go with their declared will to destroy Israel. What exactly is the payoff for maintaining the status quo? Security guarantees from the Obama administration?
It's not the Juices fault the Arabs are revolting.

#4 Then again, "mass Arab riots" is preferable to being nuked by the mad mullahs.

#6 So the Arab world would have a mass orgy of fierce face-making, eye-rolling, grimacing and pointless shouting?

#12 Now everyone knows bad things are happening these days but this is beyond phucking idiotic! Somehow just today if real a judge has said yes to putting up signs calling Muslims savages and supporting Israel againist Jihad! WTF reverse tactics to get the fire really burning like the Jews don't have a grasp of the situation in their own back yard! Now kids if this gets out of hand with all of the advances in tech it's going to go from angry mobs and some killing to mass scale stuff! Remember who they bashed at the DNC and what those phuckers really are! Stock up now because even if it does happen them dumb phucks will have all of our Military goods made in China or Pakistan! Good Luck Kids will it be a 3?

Something really phucking bad will happen on the scale of 911 or have the same impact if this is real why not just support Israel etc!

#18 I'm trying to visualize the little hole-in-the-wall store with a stock of American flags in the corner. Does the owner worry about misinterpretation?

#20 As other related Artics put it, it could fundamentally change the Balance of Power in the Region, + IMO potentially amongst the Great Powers as well depending on their level or magnitude of intervention.
Other than switching from tyranny by Strongmen to that of post-"Arab/Islamic/Muslim Spring", pro-Islamic/Sharia, "democratic" Parliamentary Systems, THE ONLY "REFORMATION" BEING ACHIEVED IS BY THE US-WEST IN FAVOR OF ACCOMODAT RADICAL ISLAM.
