Well my argument might not be that strong but it actually shreds the claim that on every war Israel gained territory, which is what you sustain. Given that your "defensive expansionism" thesis only lies at the outcome of the Six Day War -as only Golan Heights and Judea/Samaria are still under occupation-, then a war waged more than 40 years ago is not enough to support your "defensive expansionism" characterization, which would be, at best, outdated. Israel fought many other wars that do not reflect your "defensive expansionism" explanation. On another note: if other wars were fought in Syria & Lebanon territory, you could benefit from reading IDF & basic military doctrine. In which you will find that since Israel is really small, wars should be waged in enemy territory to be able to defend better as well as better political outcomes (by the way, a goal that Israel has failed miserably over the years).
