Practically it would be impossible to annihilate Arabs. And of course, Nazis had done that to Jews without success. So IMHO there's no such thing to avoid.

I can see it happening much closer to me too, though we are on different sides strength-wise :lol:

I disagree. It is very possible and that IS the problem, because it is possible. There are many workable scenarios whereby, for example, the Arab population decides to move, just like many Arabs moved, back in 1948. Annihilation has many meanings, all the way from catastrophic to more palatable. Moving is more palatable, even though this is not what we necessarily want, so the term annihilation does apply.

Look, - every time there is a war in the Middle East, people die. Lately the death toll has not been great all things considered, but still even one person dying is too much. The problem is that in the future it might get a lot worst. If we get into a full scale confrontation, happening in the same time, with Hamas and Hezbollah, AND the Arabs from West Bank decide to support them, we now at the point of full scale war, in which the consequences for the Arabs will be totally catastrophic, with no precedent in the history. THis is what i am talking about and this IS what we are trying to avoid. Is it possible? Absolutely, - possible and doable, given the current state of affairs and preparation.

Speaking of the Nazis, - well... they came real close to succeeding. Had it not been for the war with USSR, they would have murdered all the Jews in Europe. Those who managed to survive would have run away to UK or the Americas.
