Israel if they really took the gloves off could inflict some serious damage to region. That is if the take the gloves off. They pull the same stunt like they did a few years ago in Lebanon and they are likely to take a few dozen casualties and go home tail between its legs again, This is not your Father's 1967 rapid dog Israel, you have a secular state of Sabras which seem to want to fornicate, dance and smoke cigarettes than fight for national survival.

On the eve of the Yom Kippur war in 1973 many claimed that the Israeli youth were decadent and influenced by the Hippies - that they are incapable of fighting and in the end they fought like dogs and mauled the Egyptian and Syrians. Not only did they repel a surprise attack on 2 fronts, they pushed deep into the enemy's territory. So while this is not ‘67, do not underestimate a nation of Jews with their backs to the wall.
