The Israeli forces are indeed not adequately trained, but not only because of the cuts to the defense budget, made necessary by the cost of the pullout from Gaza, of the fight against Hamas, and of protecting the West Bank fundamentalist settlers in the West Bank. They are not adequately trained, also because the Israeli decision-makers want IDF to muzzle the Palestinian terrorists itself, instead of letting the Palestinians do the job. They just are not ready to pay the price, which is, of course, a viable and sovereign Palestinian state.
