    Muslim and Arab resistants had the West all but defeated in their wars in Afghanistan and Iraq despite their might and supports from local regimes. The future is uncertain and eventually either Militants would come to power or unstability would continue forever. The West adventure is to continue in other places under the banner of fighting terror. Meanwhile, globally other forces are emerging which at the end would make western powers something of the past. Western domination of world scene is diminshing and soon it would be shared by so many. Israel too would be affected. If arab could finally topple their diespotic and corrupt regimes and true popular leaders take the helm, then Israel arrogance would be reveresed. Clients such as PLO and others are to be something of the past. Israel is to make hard decisions either to adopt and reconcil or face the consequences. Israel military and societal advatages would suffer from Western decline and Arab rise. Poor and oppressed Palestininas can hope for a real saviour and justice.
