Many governments in the area, including Iraq and Iran, would like to soo Israel disappear. This is also true of many of the citizenry in the nations you just named. Weapons come to the Gaxa Strip via tunnels from Egypt, and Lebanon is a staging area for Hizbullah attacks, with Syria's acquiescence. The Lebanese, Egyptian and Syrian media are extremely hostile to Israel, and the Jordanian media is not much better.
