Israel (the Likudniks) right now is in a truce with Hamas. It is talking with Syria. It says it wants direct talks with Lebanon. That could only mean Hezbollah since Hezbollah is the most powerful group in Lebanon. What is Israel up to?
It is preparing to attack Iran. It is setting up the Shiites and Hamas. It is buying PR for itself with the American public. "See, we tried." It's their way of trying to take away the ammunition of those who will severely condemn Israel for war with Iran.
Don't fall for it. It's disingenuous. Watch what they really do. They say one thing, but they'll do another.
