Dolly, you're right that I can't imagine what it's like to live with terrorism every day. But I can't understand WHY Israelis feel more and more insecure as the Arabs make more and more peace with you? With Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon out of the equation (because of peace treaties), your enemies are reduced to minority terrorist groups that the world does NOT support. If Israel was a normal civilized country, it would tolerate minor provocations from small groups. But Israel KEEPS ON believeing that the Arabs are out to get it - the Persecution Complex - and does not have enough confidence in its superior military capability. This is stupid. Just because you CAN destroy half of Lebanon, is no reason to actually destroy it. Otherwise the USA would have destroyed half the planet - and India would have taken out half of Pakistan. Israel can't be a spoiled kid that throws temper tantrums any more. It must grow up!
