You said: "I agree with you Sage, it is about survival isn`t it? please, I wanted you to know it seems everybody is striving to survive; however, being small and heavilly equipped with weapons and military ambitions means a jsutified reaction from the other 49 weak sates." What military ambitions? Israel arms itself ONLY to protect itself. It simply wants to exist peacefully. If her neighbors would stop with the rockets and the hate rhetoric, Israel would not need weapons. You do realize that if all Islamic nations (militias and organizations) halted their aggression tomorrow, 80 - 90% of ALL global violence would end tomorrow? Then the world community could work on other issues which concern everyone, such as drug use, environmental issues, getting health care to 3rd world countries, education, etc. It is not necessary to get rid of Israel for her neighbors to join the civilized 21st Century. She is just a convenient excuse for their own failings.
