Very good thoughts. I'm of the same opinions, for the most part. I think that, historically, Israel has shown a lack of judgment for anything other than the immediate, physical threat. While it has sometimes served them well, it also blinds them to other threats and alternative solutions. I do not like the way Israel is once again becoming a complete pariah state, mostly through its own doing.
I also liked what you said about the just war/good idea. Good stuff, that, something we don't consider enough.
