If Isrealis think that they would face Arab armies that dictators had had, they are wrong. Hezbullah and Hamas have shown the way. US and Nato were blocked by Talban for 10+ years and counting. Isreal vulnerability is in space and time. Arab masses hate Israel and if they have their way a quick solution will be at hand. Time plays against Isreal because it does not have the depth to face a prolonged war as the US and Nato. Smart Israeli planners certainly know these triviality and should have others to fear about. In the end, the future in this region depends on Arabs getting their freedom from dictators and their western masters.
