Sovereignty is a funny thing (to Israel)


  The violations of Lebanese sovereignty are a case of one terrorist state boldly and arrogantly acting with the knowledge that its superior power (US spends $10.1 million* in military aid) allows it to do so. Such acts of military aggression run the risk of escalating into a wider conflict, as occurred in 2006, but as Israel’s repeated airstrikes against targets in Syria show, decision makers in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv believe the risk to be minimal. In short, they know they can get away with it.
