I think you are conflating messages from different posters; as to TPinW's remarks, whatever.
And yes you did miss MY point-- it's not about the "WISDOM of it." Israel is gearing up for a real, region-wide war, one that they plan on finishing.
Let's try a little thought-experiment (it was good enough for Einstein): 1947...the nation of Israel is established and recognized by the UN. The response of the other Mid-east nations is one of welcome.
Do you think that Israel's 'default position' on their Arab neighbors would be, as you yourself state, one of evil? I contend probably not-- the point being that after sixty-five years of Arab belligerence the Israelis have every reason to consider them evil.
