Arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand. Israelis are cheering their incompetent, out of touch leaders for pushing their nation toward a quickly advancing doom. The Hasmonean Kingdom (164 - 64 BC) only lasted a century. there are several parallels in how the two systems began, ruled and then fell by internal incompetence and foreign intrigue. Modern Israel probably won't make it that long, however. A war with Iran is probably one nation too far. It will be the last time the world will EVER allow a Jewish nation to exist.
