    Israelis today are bolstered by years of acting at will, with all repercussions blocked by US influence, veto at the UN and continued arming with advanced military technology. They are now fearless. They arrest Palestinian activists without warrant or charge. They assasinate or kidnap and return for interrogation targets overseas with the cooperation of foreign governments. They now live under an "Iron Dome" to protect their homes. They feel they can impose whatever kind of peace they want on the Middle East and noone can oppose them. All are blind to the fact that Pax Americana is fading and all their money and influence over the US will soon mean much less than it does today. Soon they will actually need to learn how to live WITH their neighbors and develop and use some actual diplomacy with their international relations. Good Luck. May you learn wisdom in time.
