    True Israel is a superpower in the region and has numerous assets. Its opponents are on the rise and its Arab allied, all dictators, are on the decline. The West too is stratigically and surely on the path towards definitive decline. Israel owes its survival to Arab dictators who protected its border, prohibited and suppressed popular resistance and helped spread defeatism and acceptance of Israel in the area. Israel has many strengths of its own and the legendry ingenuity of the Jewish communities is providing abundent resources for the peoject. The West is still solidly behind Israel and is ready to fight for its existence. So then where is the existencial risk to Israel?. Jihad. For all Muslims and Arabs (even those allied or tolerant) Israel' existence is God's challenge to Muslims. The Holy Land is Mulsim's only and cannot be shared, let alone controlled as all suggested solutions accept. The theory is that Muslims must fight until every inch of the Holy Land is back under Muslim sovereignity. It is a return to the situation that existed in 1917 before the WW1 allied were able with Sharif hussain and bedouins support to conquer Plastine, kick Onthams out and declare Plastine, a homeland for the Jewish People. Quran versets, Hadiths and all religious beliefs aggree with taht theory. Plastine is a Holy Muslim heritage. Muslim and not Arab. The best outcome that could match that theory is for Israel to become a tri-faith democartic state where Muslims, Christians and jews live as equal in peace and dignity. That is taotally opposite to what israel is seeking: a pure jewish state in Palastine meaning kicking Arabs living in parts of Israel. Some Israelis are trying to impose the jordanian solution whereby all Palestinians would be gathered in Jordan and calling that place Joradn-Palestine federation. With arab dictaors falling, Israel is in real danger and open to all plans.
