Rozalia, I suggest you research Jewish history from around 1800 to 1945 to see why the Zionists were so ardent about having a Jewish state. Such events to look at would be the Russian pogroms, the Dreyfus Affair, the holocaust, and the fact that many nations didn't even give Jews equal rights until the end of the freaking 19th century (Spain, Portugal, Russia, and Romania waited until the 20th century to legally grant Jews full rights). When life under the Christians sucks so badly, you can see why you may want to have a country where Jews are in charge. You can read Der Judenstaat (don't worry, it's been translated into English) by Theodore Herzl for an inside look at the beginnings of the modern Zionist movement.

Kind of reminds me that a number of people predicted a ground invasion of Libya, and I think I even bet some tech on it. Anybody else remember who that was/they were?


Unfortunately in this case, a ground invasion was much more likely since Israel has invaded Gaza numerous times before.

Syrian rebels are starting to clash with Lebanon soldiers. This could take some of the Lebanese pressure off of Hezbollah as well, though this whole cluster$%&@ in the region is only going to destabilize things even worse.

I think the safest thing to say here is that all sensational claims with regard to Syria.

1. NATO hasn't invaded.
2. Turkey hasn't done anything substantive.
3. It hasn't spilled over into other countries in any serious way.
4. Assad hasn't fled.
5. Assad hasn't been killed.
6. Chemical weapons haven't been used.

I could probably go on.

It has already spilled to Lebanon, though not in a large scale for now.
As for Israel, that was a bizzare idea...

It would be rather odd for the fighting to spill into Israel. Neither the government nor the rebels have anything to gain from encroaching on Israeli territory and having forces obliterated by the IDF.

Assad isn't a big enough idiot to do that but the bigger nuts in the rebel army seem to be. Perhaps when the rebel army is defeated they'll flee to the surrounding countries with their arms and we'll hear about them running about as bandit groups but who knows at this point. The war is really dragging on.

Indeed, the repercussions for Lebanon and Israel (in the Golan) in particular in the event of victory or defeat of Assad's forces will be messy to say the least.

You are right about the picture. These cowards use techniques to actually minimize the risks for themselves.
They should man up and hide behind children, the way Hamas heroes do.

um show me a real picture of Irsaeli soldiers hiding behind children . so far to me your idea of them being cowards and using children as shields are just a myth.

For Lebanon yes, for Israel no.
