    Right now there are tens of thousands of cheap, reasonably accurate missiles aimed at Israel from outside the the borders Bibi somehow thinks are "defensibl­e." What does Bibi think will happen when all those missiles fall on Israel? HINT: Most of the missiles will get through "Iron Dome," therefore most of the Israel infrastruc­ture will be destroyed, thousands of Israeli will die, millions of Israeli will flee to other countries (almost half of Israeli are dual nationals with second passports) and the economy will collapse. And that is just from the rain of missiles, before any Arab sets a foot in Israel. Once the Arabs start to actually retake their land, the Israelis will not fair much better no matter what the folks at STRATFOR may think. If Israel lets this get to massive war, there is a very good chance (much better than 50%) that Israel will lose and in the process lose everything­. Why is it so hard for Israelis to understand this is NOT WINNABLE in the long term. Either NEGOTIATE NOW and give the Arabs lots of land, water, cash and apologies for 1947 and everything that Israel has done since then or eventually lose everything.
