Quantity does not equal quality.

Osama bin Laden has urged all Muslims to attack Israel, in support of Hamas. Lebanon has jumped into the furball.

I will admit that Israel is completely surrounded by enemies. I will admit that Stalin was right: after a point, quantity has a quality all of its own.

However. I don't think that Israel's enemies in the region have the kind of quantity that will override Israel's military quality. In other words, all the two governments that are trying to swat Israel are doing is setting themselves up to get spanked. With luck, they'll get spanked hard enough that said terrorist-sponsoring governments will collapse.
