Israel has a arsenal of nukes Iran does not
In 2003, Martin van Creveld, a professor of military history at Israel’s Hebrew University, thought that the Al-Aqsa Intifada then in progress threatened Israel's existence. Van Creveld was quoted in David Hirst's "The Gun and the Olive Branch" (2003) as saying:
"We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: 'Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.' I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.

I agree we tore up Iraq and the such. We made more of a reason to attack us while supplying a new source of recruits for terrorism where there was none before.
He is a professor of military history at Israel’s Hebrew University, that's why his opinion carries weight.
and again, you put faith in your weapons or your soldiers, you lose before you start since you never put real faith in your cause. It must be disguised or made to look noble by extreme and aggressive tactics. If it were self evident people would be telling you instead of you forcing them to see.

How much 'air space' does Israel have?
Israel is basically indefensible.
Netanyahu said that himself.
TextNetanyaho says alot of things to get his support. I'm sure you'd notice that by now.

Cmon, do you look under your bed for the bogeyman too.
No, but then again the boogyman who does live under my bed is not giving speeches calling for wiping Israel off the map nor is he building a nuclear program capable of allowing nuclear bombs to be produced.

Iran warns world of coming great event
“In light of the realization of the divine promise by almighty God, the Zionists and the Great Satan (America) will soon be defeated,” Ayatollah Khamenei, the Iranian supreme leader, is warning.
Khamenei, speaking to hundreds of youths from more than 70 countries attending a world conference on the Arab Spring just days ago, told a cheering crowd in Tehran that “Allah’s promises will be delivered and Islam will be victorious.”
The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the"agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.
Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral,spiritual and economical exhaustion«We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction,anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of
Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."
