Israel is not the superpower thats what people dont understand they may have nukes but their army is not as strong compared to the surrounding countries as it used to be. Israels army is smaller then those of Egypt, Iraq, Iran and syria. Any combination of those countries would be superior in manpower, tanks, and aircraft. During the 1990's the arab states and Iran imported more than $180 billion worth of sophisticated weapons and military infrastructure, and continue to spend $30B annually on their armed forces. Israel spends about $9B on defence a year while Saudi Arabia spends more than $20B alone. The buildup of chemical and biological weapons, combined with the persuit of nukes, makes Israelsposition more precarious. Most pal politicians still call for wiping out Israel so even if many Israeli politicians think of them as dirt there is a reason for that. All it takes is muslim brotherhood (hamas) to take over Egypt and peace is over and the weapons are theirs.
