You guys don't have a clue do you?
Cedarjet, you think this is the first time Israel has experienced intransigence and trouble from its lovely neighbors? For 50 years, the Arabs have been attempting to destroy Israel and all they have accomplished is losing the west bank, gaza stip, golan heights, and tons of money in destroyed equipment. Not to mention thousands of soldiers.
I mean do the dates May 1948, October 1956, June 5-10 1967, and October 1973 mean anything to you? Have the Arabs been able to accomplish anything besides cowardly terror attacks? haha, I don't mean to sound arrogant, but the idea that Israel will be destroyed was given up 22 years ago when Egypt agreed to peace. Jordan followed up several years ago, and as for Syria, dude they've got a lot more to worry about (crumbling economy, health, infrastructure, oil prod. falling off, no water, etc...) than their neighbor to the southwest.
So I don't mean to laugh at you, but welcome to the new millenium. Frankly, I'm worried about the Arab region once oil starts running out, or alternative fuels become a viable alternative. Than you guys will learn what real work is all about.
PS: That bus attack the other day, no offense, but that said so much about you guys.
