America has given Israel a high tech air force free of charge along with lots of other high tech goodies. The idea is that this was supposed to make Israel able to defend itself. Sadly, even with all the technology advantages, the IDF was unable to defeat the Hizbollah militai in the 2006 war. Israel would far rather have America fight it's wars, as with the Iraq war. The two scenarios are that, like Iraq, Israel gets America to attack and sits on the sidelines and does nothing or, if America doesn't fall for that again, Israel will mount their own attack, such as they are able, knowing that America would be forced to defend them after they failed. The two things that Israel has going for them are (1) Obama said that America's ties to Israel are "unbreakable". (this is a motivation to misbehave) (2) Israel is never held to account for their actions. They can attack whomeever they like and, in a worst case scenario just draw America into another war while they watch. It sounds ugly, but this is the unvarnished truth. Israelis may prefer to spin it a little bit in order that the IDF does not appear so sad and inept, but who can blame them, especially since the IDF is sad and inept.
