Israel's greatest asset is its intelligence--force has proven not to be the best option. The Arab Spring is part of the change in this region, but even greater and more far-reaching changes are technological. How Israel channels its intelligence and technological edge can make a difference in this troubled region. Apparently via Stuxnet and now Duqu, Israel is attempting another route for dealing w/Iran's nuclear capabilities--this new development can also have wider repercussions as a different "option" (as a way of thinking out of the box vis a vis Hamas, and Israel's security concerns). Intelligence wins!
