Global Warring

Given its author, it should be treated with caution, but a new UN report highlights a genuine downside to globalisation. From the New York Time article U.N. Says Somalis Helped Hezbollah Fighters:

More than 700 Islamic militants from Somalia traveled to Lebanon in July to fight alongside Hezbollah in its war against Israel, a United Nations report says. The militia in Lebanon returned the favor by providing training and — through its patrons Iran and Syria — weapons to the Islamic alliance struggling for control of Somalia, it adds.
Palestinian Islamic Jihad supported by Iran. Hamas - an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood - supported by Syria, and bankrolled by Saudi Arabia. Hizbollah supported by Iran, Syria and now backed up by Somalia.

Does anyone still hold the view that conflicts against Israel are disconnected from the global war between the infidels and the believers?
