wake me up when september ends (green day) or the curious incident of the dog not barking

This is dedicated to the politicians who want to send troops into Iraq again.

I’d like to ask them a rhetorical question, and I don’t know the true answer why there isn’t more concern from a certain country in the region.

In Silver Blaze, Sherlock Holmes is drawn to the question of the guard dog not barking in the night, when a famous racehorse disappears and its trainer being murdered

Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): “Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”

Holmes: “To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.

“Gregory: “The dog did nothing in the night-time.”

Holmes: “That was the curious incident.”

So, my question is: why isn’t Israel up in arms about this certain terrorist group (not naming them; I’m not giving them the satisfaction) in their own immediate region?

They’ve attacked Iraq previously back in the 80’s; they’ve attacked Syria a few years ago; they fight a war in Lebanon anytime an Israeli politician needs his, or her, popularity numbers boosted; they’ve fought numerous wars with Egypt; they’ve hunted down and killed Nazis from WWII, and numerous terrorist leaders in the past; they currently and for the past few years, according to reports, have plans to attack Iran

… but now, when it comes to this terrorist group (still not naming them) not a peep

Why?
