They would never go anywhere near Iran for they know if they did there would be repercussions...<br />
The States have been very selective with their Wars since they got their comeuppance in Vietnam<br />
So like North Korea, they will huff and puff over Iran, but never do much more than this
Israel (I am not Jewish) is in a terrible situation and is trying to make the best of it. But it needs to defend itself against some very violent and threatening neighbors anyway possible. Not to say they are perfect, but look at their situation!
Israel is so tiny that any nuclear or seriously large bomb will take the neighbours along with them too.<br />
Hamas needs to look at themselves and what their strategy was when they first sent the rockets in. Needed to think of the people before sending it. Egypt would have had a big say in the initial strike.
They don't need excuses.
The bombing of Gaza is an electoral calculation by Netanyahu who is still smarting from publicly backing Romney and getting rebuffed over Iran.
Hello btw...... :)
Israel and Palestine are two Different Animals.<br />
But speaking for myself if I was a Jew or a Christian (I am a Christian) the Last Place on Earth I would live would be the Middle East.
It's solely (and sadly) religous I'm afraid.
I had a close friend in college who was Palestinean and he always made anti-semitic remarks.
I don't think the connection is that direct. Israel will bomb Iran when they are bombed by Iran.
