    Israel has the technology, science and the know-how to produce almost all technological defense gizmos that it needs, it has a very good and determined army, these nobody doubts. Yet it is a small country with limited resources despite all the American and jewish help from outside. If Israel finds itself one day having to invade Lebanon (and maybe even Syria) again -a very likely scenario during the next 10 years, ask Bar'el- it will put on Israel a much heavier weight than a similar campaign did 20 something years ago. Israel is powerful but it remains a small country at the end and therefore in the mathematical limit, it is not guaranteed to remain invulnerable all the time.

    from the article: Is Israeli society strong enough to face the future?
