This makes sense. Netanyahu seems to be right to lobby for better weapons. 1) Christians believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ. 2) Muslims believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ. Christian and Muslim believes are based on Judaism. Christians use the "old Testament" while Muslims "adopted" the whole of Judaism because Mohammed is the last of the prophets who "rewrote" it all. The Jews are pretty alone waiting for their messiah. Extremist Muslims want to wipe Israel out because there is no need for its existence as the Qu'ran covers everything needed for the coming of Christ. Extremist Christians need Israel and the clash with Muslims for "their version" of the second coming of Christ. Israel has to be awake to defend itself. If it "only" would be about territory and national integrity instead of Religion, there would probably already peace.
