Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, they would all be demolished by Israel if it came to all out battle.
So what you're saying is you believe that Israelis enjoy murdering Palestinians?
They could easily beat the military of any those countries of course, combined even, but an enduring occupation and annexation of those countries would be impossible.
But cute how you ignore the bit where I posted:
More importantly though:
the difference between most of those countries and the Palestinian territories is that the latter has a much larger concentration of Biblical sites. And while probably the majority of Zionist feel that they should just let the West Bank be, there is a large portion of more religiously fanatic Israeli's who feel the entire bit is theirs decreed by Yahweh. And the former group isn't really willing strongly oppose the latter group, because the unity of the population is at stake. Israel isn't as stable as many people believe: strongly cracking down in West Bank settling -which by any means is what should be happening- would create a massive divisive ripple in Israel.
If you know anything about Israel you know this is true, and this is why the whole West Bank settling is happening. The Palestinians did nothing to provoke it.
