    'Israel has not faced an existential threat for over 30 years.' Of course Israel does now, a more frightening threat than ever before. However, during that 30 years despite there not being large Arab armies moving in to destroy Israel, there was no peace. Not only the Israeli dead and maimed but the fact that no Israeli has lived in total security for those 30 or some years. A threat need not be another Holocaust but one in which citizens are leary of riding buses or gathering in public places or shopping. Israel's refusal to chrush this threat as she did Egyptian and Syrian and Jordanian armies is a denial of providing the security that each of her citizens is entitled to. Things went downhill with Oslo. And after, despite the speeches in Arabic that contradicted everything promised in English and the textbooks pouring out anti-Semitism and maps Israel or even Hebrew named cities in Israel, Oslo was followed by Peres and Barak. A disaster.
