If I was a sort of Bond Villain, I'd probably destroy both countries in a barrage of nules, and send a public message to the world "It was me. Bring it", just to unite the world against a common enemy, see if I could bring peace under that concept.

Oh yeah, and that "brutal vicious occupation" has lead to an HDI (UN measure for quality of life, including literacy, life expectancy, infant mortality, etc) higher than many of their arab neighbors. At least until they elected Hamas which puts lobbing rockets at Israel as mor eimportant than helping their own people.

Um, does IDF use American rifles? I'm not military or an expert or anything, but I thought they'd use Galils or something...

Galils are outdated now. Most IDF troops have M4s, with a healthy smattering of Tavor TAR-21s mixed in;

When I was there a few years ago, the soldiers guarding the Wailing Wall were armed with Micro-Tavor21s...


Yep, pretty much what he said.
I think the Givati and Golani Brigades have the Tavor, and the rest use M4s. I'd have to see tomorrow when I'm walking to work, if there are any soldiers around, who's carrying what. (Can tell by the unit tags).

In the meantime most reservist (like me) get modified M16s, ie the old long ones cut down. Basically around the second intifada (2000) the IDF realized that the shorter length was more useful in urban fighting which is most of what the IDF does these days, and any extra accuracy from the longer barrel wasn't worth it. Instead of crating them and buying new guns, they cut them down and replaced the stock with the shorter collapsable one. You can tell that it's one of the cut ones as the barrel is slightly shorter then the real short ones. They had to do that so that the rifling would work properly.

What I really don't understand about all this is that Israel keeps insisting it controls Gaza and the West Bank when clearly they don't and haven't for some time (being able to selectively kill them control, for reference see Syria). Why can't sane minds find a middle ground on this? Neither side is willing to budge an inch, and the IDF is picking a fight it just cannot win, just like we did in Iraq. Sure, if all the Palestinians line up to get bombed Israel has total advantage, but fighting an entrenched guerrilla population is a loser for both sides.

Israel is starting WW3 just because they can, which is about the dumbest reason to start a war... ever. You want a scary scenario? What if the IDF invades Gaza and it drags Egypt (note: this just started to happen, Egypt has declared for the Palestinians as of about 45 mins ago), Jordan, and SA into the mess. Add to that Hamas has every reason to ally with fringe European factions like the "Golden Dawn" farkers in Greece/Spain/Italy, and suddenly you have a 4 front offensive. On TOP of all that, no one knows where the hell Syria's Bio/Chem tech has gone, and with some of that crap one bad decision will kill *millions* of people.

It's basically a war on math:

Israel = 7.7M people

versus

West Bank + Gaza = 4M people
Egypt = 82M people

Can't Netanyahu add, or is he so full of himself that he thinks he's invincible? NEVER fight a hostile enemy population on their own turf, especially when they already see themselves as having nothing to lose. Oh, and let's not forget Iran, surely they will have something to say about all this as well...

It's not that simple.
Hundreds of rockets have been fired from Gaza over the last few days. What are we supposed to do, bend over and take it in the ass? Incidentially, that's what we usually do. Rockets and mortars are fired regularly from Gaza towards civilian areas of Southern Israel.
It's not a matter of mathematics, if that was the case Israel would have been wiped in in the War of Independence, or again in the Six Day War. What you are missing is that Israelis have everything to lose. The terrorist groups, ie Hamas, want us dead. There is no middle ground with that. You can't argue with crazy.

No, I spend as little time thinking about them as I can, I'm just making the point that self-perceived mutual oppression can make for strange bedfellows. A LOT of people hate Israel (consequently, not me, I just wish they would stop stirring the pot) and aggression can cause all kinds of unintended consequences.

The question comes down to why everyone hates each other (in this case, it seems to all be about the "declaration" of a Palestinian state, so the whole thing is about ideals). There's almost always a middle road, it's just that in this case everyone always wants to take extreme points of view on both sides. It's a gross generalization to say that all Arabs want all Israelis dead, as there have been and continue to be diplomats on both sides. Israel could at least try to negotiate, but they instead seem to always want to up the ante militarily every time something happens as a response. It's like American politics, but with guns. The funny thing about it is that in most cases like this the answer is obvious, but since neither side wants to lose face and admit it they just keep ratcheting up the pressure instead.
