  1. Why doesn’t Israel lose its wars?

    Nothing magical or religious about it.

    Israel is a very small country. It ranges in width from 115 km in Negev Desert down to as little as 15 km in the populated areas. An enemy can split the country in half by literally walking a couple of hours.

    Israel is surround by countries that, in the past, have announced that annihilation of the Jewish state and people is their stated goal.

    If Israel loses a war, it disappears, its people disappear into history.

    Israel cannot afford to lose a war. Hell, they cannot afford to lose a battle.

    There is a saying from a British writer named Samuel Johnson that goes “Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.”

    Israel is the man facing the noose, every day, in every war. They start every war backed up against the sea with no where to go but forward. So the attitude is, “If Israel wins, I may die in the war. If Israel loses, I will die, my family will die, everyone I know will die.”

    The only way to defeat someone with that attitude is pay the price and it will be a high price. Israel has developed their military to make that price very high indeed and no one has stepped up an paid the price.
