    Isreal was created by the West after securing Arab consents. Since the 1917 declaration, Arabs leaders have cooperated or at least facilitated the plan. Arab regimes never seriously opposed Isreal. All wars between Arab armies were easily won by Isreal. Time of truth came when Isreal faced resolute groups such as Hezb and Hamas. Isreal is vulnerable in several ways. Arab spring might ends up in peoples assuming their destiney instead of dictators. The significance of that is rivial but Isreal prtends not to care. Iran is not as advanced as Israel of course and advantages go to Isreal even with limited involvement by the West. However, Iran is tenacious and patient. During 1980-1988 it was invaded by Iraq with the support of Arabs and the West. Iraq almost lost and the US had to tip the balance. Iran is isolated since its revolution in 1979 and now it is encircled by hostile states from every side, except Turkey. This area had enough of bloodshed and it is in the interest of all, including Israel not to make a new war. Iran would be better retaliate by cluster bombing Israel. This is very effective and Israel does it constantly. Israel is compact and heavily densed in population. Military startegists know well how to use that element. This time of the year is the time of reflection and happiness. Israel must show enginuity and craetivity and humanity. For example, liberating all prisoners and allowing Palestinians to unite and build their own institutions and future. We beleive that the one state solution is unavoidable and the aprtis must act with that in mind.
