Here's a nice timeline of events for those of you as ignorant as me. No doubt this timeline has had some of the provocations edited out, such that Israel looks more aggressive than a sympathizer would believe. Nonetheless, you can't argue too much with things like "Israel invades with 60,000 troops..."
So, let's say you're a young, unemployed Arab male with no family. Your friends keep telling you the West is trying to take over the entire Middle East. You don't know if this is true or paranoid.
If by next month (say) Israel occupies Lebanon in the same way that the US occupies Iraq, might that give you food for thought?
