We both know that's not true, and for good reasons.

Edit:

P.S
It seems as though those Iranian ships are being let through, so perhaps I should be turning that Simpsons photo in Israel's direction now

It is very interesting that so many governments in the Mideast are being destabilized. The US and Israeli intelligence may have a big role. It would be better for Israel if these governments were worried about their own survival then united against Israel if something major happened. Possible attack against Iran or another big land grab could be in the works.

Palestinians protest against U.S. veto of resolution condemning Israel's settlement policy


RAMALLAH, West Bank - Palestinians staged an angry protest here Sunday against the United States' veto Friday of a U.N. Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlement policy, with participants denouncing President Obama and predicting that the move would harm Washington's standing across the roiling Middle East.

The gathering, attended by about 300 supporters of the ruling Fatah party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Palestinian Authority employees, reflected broader public disappointment here with the veto, the first cast by the Obama administration.

In several interviews around Ramallah, the Palestinian seat of government, people said that the American move confirmed their view that Washington was not a fair mediator in the conflict with Israel. They accused the Obama administration of a double standard: supporting democracy in other Arab countries while backing Israeli settlement and occupation in the Palestinian areas.

"Our message to America, which says it supports freedom in the Arab world is: Where are the freedoms of the Palestinian people?," Raed Radwan, the local Fatah leader, told the crowd gathered in Manara Square. "Washington, where is the democracy you are talking about?"

Protestors chanted: "Listen Obama, listen, we're a people that won't kneel down! Obama out! Settlers out! Occupation out!"

Muhammad Khalil, another speaker, accused the U.S. of "raising its hand in a veto against the right of our people to an independent Palestinian state." He vowed that there would be "no negotiations in the shadow of the criminal bias" in favor of Israel.


Palestinians plan 'day of rage' after US vetoes resolution on Israeli settlements


Palestinians are planning a "day of rage" on Friday in response to the US wielding its veto against a UN security council resolution condemning Israeli settlements.

The US decision to use its veto has sparked a furious reaction in the West Bank and Gaza.

Anti-US rallies took place in the West Bank towns of Bethlehem, Tulkarem and Jenin this weekend after the 14-1 vote on the resolution, in which the US stood alone against the rest of the security council, including Britain, Germany and France. It voted in contradiction of its own policy.

Stratfor Red Alert: Clashes In Tripoli

Things are clearly heating in Libya. Gadhafi and his clan have vowed to fight to the last man and bullet, so a peaceful outcome seems the more unlikely.

Looks like the s.o.a.b. Gadhafi is tasting his own "revolutionary" medicine. My best wishes go to the people of Libya, may this be quickly over with no more casualties. And may justice and freedom prevail.

Israel Army: Hizbullah Might Attack Israel to Stave off Pressure in Iran

Tehran could activate Hizbullah fighters to attack Israel in an effort to stave off domestic pressure within Iran, according to assessments in the Israeli army's Northern Command.
"The concern within the army is that if the regime in Tehran feels under pressure due to anti-government demonstrations, it will try to initiate an attack on an Israeli target – either overseas or near the border – to divert attention from its own troubles," said The Jerusalem Post newspaper on Monday.

The Israeli daily said that Hizbullah operatives were assisting Iranian security forces in suppressing anti-regime protests.

Iranian opposition groups claimed that as many as 1,500 Hizbullah operatives are taking part in the clashes, said Israel's Ynet news site.

Yeah.... Thing is... Nasrallah is not a TOTAL puppet of Iran.

Israel Plans Offshore Gas Field Defense from Lebanon

The Israeli navy is to present a plan for the defense of offshore gas fields that hold the prospect of greatly reducing the Jewish state's energy dependency, the mass-selling Yediot Aharonot newspaper reported Sunday.

Israel says the gas fields all lie in its waters, but Lebanon which remains technically at a state of war with the Jewish state, says one of them lies partly on its side of their un-demarcated maritime border.

The Tamar field, which Lebanon contests, holds reserves of natural gas estimated at 8.4 trillion cubic feet (238 billion cubic meters), while the Leviathan field is thought to hold twice that, around 16 trillion cubic feet (450 billion cubic meters).

So it's a big one.

U.S. Think Tank Unveils Alleged List of Hizbullah Members Named in Hariri Case

Hizbullah is greatly concerned about the prospect of public indictments in ex-Premier Rafik Hariri's assassination case, in large part because some of the group's senior members have already been named in the media as potential suspects, said the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
The Hizbullah members include Qassem Suleiman, Hajj Salim, Abdul Majid Ghamloush, brothers Hussein and Mouin Khreis, and, most significantly, Mustafa Badreddine, the institute said in a report written by Matthew Levitt.

Badreddine is the brother-in-law of Imad Mughniyeh -- the assassinated chief of Hizbullah's external operations.
