Nura fails to present the truth

Reader comment on item: Must Counterinsurgency Wars Fail?
in response to reader comment: What provocation?

Nura, you state that, "the conflict in the Middle(East) is the result, as has been in the past, of invading armies". So who are these invading armies? In 1948, 1956, 1967, 1970 and 1973, Muslim nations attacked Israel and were defeated in every attack. Very interesting since Israel today has a population of 6.5 million Jews while the Muslim nations surrounding Israel have over 240 million Muslims. Rather astonishing that 200 million Muslims could not defeat 5 million Jews. Nura, you state that; "Israel must exist for the prophecy to be fulfilled".
Here are some prophesies from the Holy Bible:

Zechariah 8:23 Thus says the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying; We will go with you: for we have heard that GOD is with you.
Zechariah 14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the KING, the LORD of HOSTS, and to keep, "The Feast of Tabernacles".

Micah 4:2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of GOD of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth out of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Obadiah 1:18 And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD has spoken it.

Some more information: Esau was the oldest of twin brothers, Esau and Jacob, of their father Isaac. Esau became the father of Arabs and Jacob became the father of the Israelites. So, do you think that I may know a little more about the Bible than you do?
