The game that Israel is playing will end abruptly at some point which could be tomorrow or ten years from now. It will probably not last much longer than that. When the right weapon falls into the right hands, the game will be over. Both the weapon and the hands exist today. Unlike Israel's usual scenario, in which American support bails them out of the fixes they get themselves into, the end will come with no dialog and no warning. Anything that happens before then is simply marking time. Running in place. Waiting for something big to happen. Personally, I would like to see Israel living at peace within the 1967 borders for whatever that's worth. There are enough people on both sides that are not happy with such an outcome and they would take the game to the end, each side believing they can win. Actually, Israel can't win. Even if they foil 99.9% of the attacks to come, all it takes is one.
