I have no intention of defending Isreal. However the tone of these articles are 
scary at best. Talking about motive as being irrelevant, etc, etc. Of course 
motive is important. If there is no logical reason for someone to do something 
most likely the basic assumptions are flawed.

When a war goes on bad things happen. A lot. Ships sink. People die, etc, etc. 
If you dig deeply enough you can find something grey and then proceed to build 
a case for whatever you want. There is no black and white in the world. Get 
used to it and understand it or you are an easy mark.

The fact remains that Isreal was attacked and whatever happened after that and 
since was not their doing directly. Yes they could have acted better and they 
still can. But then so can the people on the other sides. They probably have a 
right to act more paranoid than anyone else since they are surrounded and no 
one else is. Remember everything points to the fact that if they had not been 
attacked none of this would have ever happened.

Trying to build a case for hate is stupid. Take a balanced approach. Remember 
all of the dictators in that area of the world need you to hate someone. 
Isreal, the US, Britain, someone. Because if you don't then you will start 
asking too many questions.

Saddam killed a hundred thousand of his own people in a very short time. How is 
he defended by people who support him? By fomenting hate. It is not relevant to 
who. If you buy into the rhetoric then you where helping him to kill thousands. 
He is not unique. 

Most of the dictators in the region use this technique and kill many people. In 
fact I would go as far as to say most modern dictators do this. Just start 
looking for them throughout Africa and Asia. They all do the same thing. North 
Korea for example is collapsing because it is the only communist economy that 
isn't growing. So they start building nukes to pick a fight with the world. 
Remember it was a north korean diplomat who bragged that caused all of their 
'problems'. Also remember that North Korea could easily flatten Sol in less 
then half an hour with standard artilary making nukes totally unessessary for 
self defense. South Korea would never agree to fight them because they would be
