I think the Israeli leadership is plenty arrogant enough to feel certain they can win it and win it quickly enough so they aren't significantly hurt
as a nation.
Just look at your psychological assessment. It doesn't make sense. If Israel has no choice, but to attack Iran, obviously, they will have to
'encourage' themselves, and propagate an image of strength and ability. Whats the alternative? Realism? Is that how you bolster your leadership,
soldiers and population before a war?
Frankly, aside from military might and an individualistic culture (which many analysts count for IDF strength on the battlefield) another important
(spiritual) factor is their belief in God.
This is the moment for Israel. Is the Jewish God with them? It depends on how they react.
I can only imagine how giddy Jew haters (and those haters of the Jewish religion) are for this upcoming war. The books of the prophets recounts some
of the stereotypical taunts they fling at the Jews in these sort of situations.
Are you serious? A far greater percentage of the total population in Egypt and Iran (whose state owned media, IRNA, subjects their masses to a
vitriolic program of anti-Zionism) want war, than in Israel. In fact, I'd imagine a majority of Iranians (in a country of 75 million, that need be 38+
million, which is fully plausible) are antsy to see Israel 'wiped' off the map, and Jerusalem "liberated" from the Jewish "occupiers".
There is simply no equivalence between a democratic society like Israel and a fanatical, theocratic culture like Iran. Yes, 'democrats' and liberals
can be found there; but they are still a minority, in a nation with powerful religious ambitions.
