    Israel's orientation is "Masada will not fall again". This fortress mentality served it well for most of its history. We Jewish people have a deeply rooted belief that no one really cares about our survival except other Jews. So it's easy to resonate emotionally with the Fortress Masada point of view. But the modern concept of Nations, with well defined borders and a national military to protect it, arose from the Treaty of Westphalia. This European concept has never been totally accepted throughout the world. Non-state organizations, such as Hezbollah, view another model as being just as legitimate in serving the needs of their people. Their success, especially in this internet and newsmedia age, ensures that they will continue to rise and flourish. This means that Jews, both Israeli and those living in the Galut, need to change their orientation about what it takes to survive and thrive in today's world, not the world of 30 years ago.
