There is no doubt that war should always be the very last resort. What is nearly impossible to determine is just when the point of "very last resort" has been reached. Yes, there are rumblings of peace from various Muslim states, led by Saudi Arabia, but there is also information that Iran is arming and training both Hizbollah and Hamas. Indeed, it has been reported that five hundred Hizbollah men have been trained in Iran in the use of anti-aircraft missiles, and that they returned to Lebanon with the weaponry. There are reports, by Haaretz itself, that Iranian Revolutionary Guards are embedded in the military wing of Hamas, and that new anti-tank weapons are being deployed. Without doubt, the IDF must be prepared for all eventualities. Yes, Israel needs peace; the only question is can she have it before the next war.
