    Every year of the existance of Israel, and every year since the 1880's, has been one in which despair and despondency were at reach. How can we live with a sea of Arab countries who hate us all around, and are bent to push us to the Mediterranean sea? Now that is much more complex. Assymetrical warfare, Iranian bold hegemony and nurturance of terrorist proxies in Gaza, Syria and Lebanon, American implosion of any sound Foreign Policy agenda, the comeback of anti-Semitism in Europe and elsewhere, specially in the Muslim world who has imported it, and the desperating fact Israel's current government can't choose between settlements and a semblance of normal borders and hopefully a quiet, more normal relationship with Palestinians. However, Israel's economy, culture, sciences, industry, judiciary, creativity are booming despite all these odds. If you are "a pro", you should see with both eyes and have a Jewish heart.
