Don't take it seriously---no one is going to send an invasion fleet, 
aircraft or a flood of ballistic missiles to back up their hysteria 
about the Israelis defending themselves  from suicide bombers and  Gaza  
missiles, nor  will they do so against the U.S. in Iraq if there is any 
degree of success---as the regime of Saddam Hussein demonstrated, more 
than anything else the Arabs respect a winner.

The Russians, especially after the Beslan school atrocity will not speak 
against or hear any nonsense about how terrible it is to kill 
terrorists.   Marvelous how clarity of thought is improved by your own 
ox being gored.

Al Jazeera and most European governments foam  at  the mouth  at Israel 
fencing  Arab attackers  out, or Israel attacking their attackers---and 
U.S. prison mistreatment,  but never a word of  criticism of  
Palestinian mass murder, the Iraq insurgent butchery of their prisoners 
and roadside bombs indiscriminately killing passersby---that's all right 
in the E.U. and Arab value system .
