    Once again, Mr. Ah, M.L., etc., harp on the same question but it is the wrong question, or at best half the question. It is not that Israel is so invulnerable or great. It is simply that they continue to be threatened by losers. Like Napoleon who won his reputation as a military genius by fighting armies generalled by idiots and incompetents (at least until he ran into a few Russian and British generals who were only mildly stupid), Israel will continue to win as long as Palestinians are insistent on losing. Hate to repeat myself so often, but the real question is not what Israel should do to avoid defeat, the real questions is what Palestinians should do in order to win. Everyone at this web site, including Palestinians and their most rabid friends keeps avoiding that subject. Too painful perhaps? Too revealing of your own faults and deficiencies?
