    ridiculous.  You don't need a lot of pseudopsychoanalysis to figure this out. It has happened over and over again so we can learn from experience:

    Hamas/Hizbollah  etc.  build tunnels,   smuggle rockets and missiles,  and start lobbing them at the enemy they have sworn to destroy, Israel.    Israel takes it for a while then goes after the militants and their infrastructure which is unfortunately or by design interwoven with civilian infrastructure. It is, after all, a small crowded space, but dead civilians soon follow, the world is outraged and condemns the brutal, powerful Israelis.   This time the nastiness could be intense due to political shifts due to  the Arab spring and the fact that the Israelis know that this American administration may or may not have their backs.

    •  ummm what is that about the American Admin.? (0+ / 0-)
      the fact that the Israelis know that this American administration may or may not have their backs.
      No.... what the Israelis may or may think regarding the Obama Administration does not necessarily match what is reality.

      The reality is that the administration of President Obama has proven itself to be a true friend of Israel and the Jewish people. Why would anyone doubt that the Obama administration would have Israel's back?
