Netanyahu wages war without declaring it. Gaza is bombed, shelled, and invaded regularly. Targeted assassinations are commonplace. So are cyber attacks, deadly explosions, other sabotage, as well as various covert and overt acts.

Last October, Israeli warplanes attacked Khartoum. An arms factory was struck. Israel accused Sudan of smuggling weapons to Hamas. Corroborating evidence was absent.

At the time, Israeli officials refused comment. Sudan's Information Minister Ahmed Belal Osman said:

"Four military planes attacked the Yarmouk plant....We believe that Israel is behind it. The planes appeared to approach the site from the east."

"Sudan reserves the right to strike back at Israel." Two civilians were killed. The facility was partially destroyed. Osman added:

"We are now certain that this flagrant attack was authorized by the same state of Israel." 

"The main purpose is to frustrate our military capabilities and stop any development there and ultimately weaken our national sovereignty."

He said analysis of rocket debris and other material implicated Israel.

In November and December 2011, Sudanese media accused Israel of attacking two alleged Gaza-bound arms convoys. Four deaths and two injuries were reported. 

Sudan's military said little. Israel refused comment. It's largely silent about all aggressive acts. Regional neighbors and more distant ones have reason to fear.

Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert flaunts Israel's "long arm." Its history reflects aggressive wars, preemptive attacks, and other lawless acts. It menaces regional stability.

Occupied Palestinians have most to fear. Lebanon was attacked in 1978, 1982, 1993, 1996, and 2006.

Southern Lebanon was illegally occupied for 18 years. Israel still holds Ghajar bordering Golan and Sheba Farms. It's valued for its water resources.

In 1981, Israel destroyed Iraq's Osirak reactor. Baghdad didn't retaliate. In 2007, an alleged Syrian nuclear site was bombed. At the time, evidence of one was suspect. Later confirmation proved none existed. 

IAEA head Mohamed ElBaradei said its experts analyzed satellite imagery. They concluded that the building struck was not a nuclear facility.
