It's a waste of everyone's time to discuss the Alamo with you. But you should be put in perspective. You will say anything to defend zionism, whether true, relevant, pompous or deceptive. You will say anything to perpetuate the Israeli national paranoia, "we poor Jews are surrounded by Muslims who want to wipe us off the face of the earth" (while you approach the 43rd year of a harsh, humiliating illegal occupation of Palestinian territory) "we are victims of terror" (while you attempt to starve 1.5 million of them in Gaza) "the UN is anti-semitic" (while Israel is in violation of more UN resolution than any country in the world) "the world is anti-semitic" (while the Israeli human rights record equates that of Burma and N. Korea). "We face the whole world alone:" The Masada syndrome. Now you want to compare Masada to the Alamo, Pearl Harbor and the WTC. Nonsensical! The Alamo defenders intended to hold until Huston's army arrived to relieve them. No whining national paranoia there.
