Israel does have a grand strategy----SURVIVAL. Most citizens are willing to fight for it. The problem is political. Coalition governments are by definition unstable. Politically Israel is faced with a system that promotes short sighted solutions. Politicians seek political survival rather than the long term interests of the state. Thus, Israel?s military hands are tied. In the long run the lack of a decisive military victory is causing more casualties than would occur if the war were fought to win. Until political change is implemented the status quo will continue to undermine effective measures to secure survival. This is what our enimies use against us.
