The only thing Israel has achieved from this war is more hatered (towards itself) in the world general and through out the Arab world. This has put all moderates in the Muslim world to re-think and re-evaluate their opinion about making peace with Israel.Wars are not won with sophisticated weaponry and military hardware or by inflicting maximum casualties on innocent civilians but by winning the hearts and mind of people. I think the only way for Israel to ensure future peace for itself and for the region is to address the issues with sincerity, 1) It should have dialogue with the leadership of Palistinians ( which has emerged through a democratic process)and work towards a real two state solution without dragging feet on the West Bank. 2) Resolve all territorial disputes with Syria and Lebanon.
