2. Drill on collapse of occupation & fleeing Palestine

It is coming, as it happened to all previous occupations of Palestine, all were super powers of their times.
3. The strength of democracy.
Dave Ronen ,   Haifa   (05.25.09)
If both political leaders and public opinion are convinced of the rightness and necessity of war, it is extremely difficult to withstand the wrath of a democratic country. The staying power of such countries does not depend on the damage they suffer in human lives and property. Their power lies in what defines their very existence–their belief in democratic values and their wish to protect them. If a democratic society believes in the rightness and necessity of its struggle, and if its leadership can provide a simple and clear answer to the question, “What are we fighting for?” the public will be willing to bear any burden required of them. At the most critical junctures of its history, the citizenry is not the weakest link in a democratic country, but its greatest resource. We will fight for our country because it is ours and we have no other as explained in 6 parts at :

8. Israel flourishes DESPITE wars instigated by her enemies...
EST ,   Miami USA   (05.25.09)
That is why her neighbors are rabidly jealous. Neither peace nor war will bring develoment to those countries who thrive on feeding their citizens hatred and disrespect for human life ... while their leaders steal millions of euros given to them as humanitarian aid. It flows like sewage in the sewers ...
