    Nothing but incompetence and blundering since the end of the 6 day war in 1967. 1) Post-67 victory - failed to dump Pal problem back on Egypt & Jordan 2) Yom Kippur War - Israel caught napping, saved by USA 3) 1970s - beginning of stupid settlement adventure 4) did not dump Gaza back on Egypt as part of Sinai deal 5) adventures in Lebanon & participation with fascist militias in massacres 6) alienation of Lebanese civilians, resulting in rise of Hizbulla 7) campaign against secular Palestinian nationalist mayors/leaders resulting in rise of Hamas 8) relentless oppression of Palestinian civilians resulting in increasing radicalization/extremism of population 9) failure to disarm Gaza prior to withdrawal 10) arrogant asleep-at-the-wheel attitude resulting in most recent problems
