Some of the meanings of the word "Israel" are timeless, but the "Israel" that is the Zionist political state is not among them. @ Krankn, Take a step back and look at the enemies of the state of Israel. It goes far beyond the borders of previous wars and includes new weapons. Israel has won past wars because of vastly superior weapons. Not bravery. Not some superiority in its soldiers. Not the hidden hand of "god". Israel's enemies are not the desert hillbillies of '67 and '73.
