From 1948 until today several wars took place between the State of Israel and the neighboring Arab Countries, and in each war the Israelis were successful, and the Arab countries were the losers, and in each of these wars the fighting power of the Palestinians was diminished bit by bit. Even now the Arab Countries were and are still afraid to fight Israel with its 200 atomic devices ready to be launched by air or by missiles.
Any nation other than the Palestinians would have ceased the hostilities and accepted the fait accompli, but not the Palestinians, because they have faith in the righteousness of their struggle.
In order to finish with the problem of Palestine the Israeli State reverted to methods of harassment and suppression with an eventual transfer of the Palestinians to the Neighboring Arab Countries.
THE LEBANESE CIVIL WAR
The Lebanese Civil war that lasted 18 years brought Hezbollah to the forefront of the Lebanese political and military power. In the year 2000 the last Israeli soldier left Lebanon, and Hezbollah entered the Lebanese Parliament and became a Political Party.
In 2005, the Maronite Patriarch urged President Chirac and George Bush (the son) to help Lebanon in getting the Syrians out of Lebanon. The Syrian Forces were invited by the Lebanese Government as well as by the Arab League to help “pacify the situation” in Lebanon resulting in the civil war 1975-1993.
As a consequence Resolution 1559 of the UN calling for Syria to withdraw its forces as well as its intelligent services and to disarm Hezbollah as well as the Palestinian Refugee camps in Lebanon. Syria complied with Resolution 1559.
