      used as a 'justificaton tool' for whatever Netanyahu&friends wish to accomplish. This type of snakeoil salesmanship is nothing new, either.  Metaphorically speaking, for example, one throws poison in drinking well in order to sell the 'antidote.'

            the attacks perpetrated by hamas?  Because I can certainly point out the attacks perpetrated by Israel under the command of Likud.

            The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.
