Do you notice that only Israel in the Middle East is accorded the honor of labeling its attacks always as either retaliatory or preemptive?  So even when Israel attacks (offends), it basically is defending.  So it can never be offensive that state?  Can you imagine a Western paper writing: that Hizbullah launched a preemptive attack on Israel? Or that Hamas struck in retaliation?
