Despite Israel being stronger and more stable than it has ever been, the Middle East nevertheless presents many threats to the Jewish State.
Perhaps the two biggest challenges facing the country today are the Iranian nuclear threat, and the conflict with the Palestinians.
World powers appear close to an agreement with the Islamic Republic of Iran over a new proposed nuclear deal, which, if media reports are accurate, may be no better than the 2015 one as far as Israel is concerned. And as for the peace process, Israel’s peace partner, Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, revealed his true self recently when he refused to condemn the 1972 Munich massacre of Israeli athletes, and instead accused Israel of committing 50 Holocausts.
