Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Somebody has got your paranoia going. Read here about Hamas and Hezbollah:

One of America's most critically engaged public intellectuals, Noam Chomsky, talks about Israel and its relationship to the U.S. In this interview, he spoke with Kathleen Wells, a political correspondent for Race-Talk, about Israel and its interplay with the United States.

If anyone really believes that the US, now represented by the Obama administration, is interested in Middle East peace, read on and get over your illusions. Chomsky's closing words his interview,

Noam Chomsky: The Real Reasons the U.S. Enables Israeli Crimes and Atrocities (shergald)

....Israel has continued its expansion, by then mostly into the West Bank, and the U.S. was supporting it all the way, and so it continues. So, sure, if Israel continues to settle in the occupied territories -- illegally, incidentally, as Israel recognized in 1967 (it's all illegal; they recognized it) -- it's undermining the possibilities for the viable existence of any small Palestinian entity. And as long as the United States and Israel continue with that, yes, there will be insecurity.


And as far as Iran is concerned, I am not familiar with any terrorist activities it has engaged in, are you? Iran, a Shiite country, certainly has no relations with OBL, a Sunni follower. Just because Israel doesn't like Iran doesn't mean that it is a terrorist country. Yet, nobody in the West would like to live in a theocracy. In this regard, you will have to remind us of just what terrorism the Saudis have engaged in.

Who are the real terrorists? Israel and the US, it turns out Read Chomsky for the details.

And adding Hamas and Hezbollah to the totals still will not get you above 1%.
